17 Feet Closer Beats 17 Yards Longer
I’m writing this morning from Sacramento, CA, where we are showing SCOR4161 at the renowned Expo at Haggin Oaks Golf Complex. This is the biggest Demo Day (rather 3 days) in the world, and if any of you are attending, please come by and say “Hi”. I’ll be on the main stage today at 2:00 with a program I call Short Game Boot Camp.
Demo days are a strange experience for us, as most people are roaming up and down the line, hitting every driver and fairway wood they can, swinging from their heels and seeing if they can find something magical. Truth is, they probably won’t. Unless you haven’t bought a driver in five years or so, or just have one that isn’t right for you, the technology is so against the wall that you probably won’t find that new driver that really makes a difference. But that bomb it mentality seems to get in the way of thinking short and testing wedges. We’ll do our best to change that, of course.
The point is that recent tour statistics indicate that you just might be looking in the wrong place if what you are after is lower scores. Which is more satisfying – big drives but a score that stinks, or fairways, greens and consistently lower scores? If it’s the latter, here are a couple of recent insights into the PGA Tour this year that might be interesting to you.
Think about it as you roam the range at the next demo day you attend.
