In my bit of playing around with the SC 200 (that I mentioned recently), I smacked a sand wedge shot that really interested me. Normally, I hit it—and all my mid-irons to wedges—extremely high. At least, they look higher than those of others I see at the range.
This shot though, with the SW felt a touch thin. No biggie, not like that’s unusual, but this one stopped! Like it shot a spike out when it hit. It didn’t suck back—that’s always fun to see, even with spinny range balls—but it stopped dead.
After going 120, per the SC. And it actually looked a lot further than the others I’d been hitting. Much lower ball flight than the high-launch irons I usually hit, but if it’s stopping anyway, and going further, this seems preferable.
My question is this: is this just a bladed shot that I can’t possibly repeat? Or might attempts at lowering my iron flight (through advancing my low point, flattening my swing, etc…) give me ~15-20 yards more flight with sufficient spin?
Or is all this something I need to just cough up the money and get a pro involved already?
