Forgive me if I come off sound all golf-instructory (for the real deal go see Al Crawford at the Griffith Park driving range), but while hitting your woods well out of the driving range teebox may be more sexy and satisfying, a good drive on the golf course doesn’t mean diddlus squatumus if you can’t work it onward to the green with your other clubs. Thus it’s important to give yourself plenty of time in the box swinging your unsung irons because they’ll do more to determine your score than your driver.

Quicktime clip of me and my seven iron is here.

Of course actual consistent skill can help too, but other than practicepracticepracticepraypractice I’ve got no fresh pearls of wisdom to help achieve that.
