How to Map Clubs and Balls

Mapping clubs and balls is not difficult to do, but it is vital that you learn the skill to improve you scoring on WGT.  First start a practice round, you need to be able to take mulligans.  Remember that every type of shot needs to be measured with each and every club.  How far will a full pitch shot go with your 64W wedge with top spin?  Not many know the answer to this but it could save you an eagle shot the next time you are on the fringe 20 yards from the hole!

You may do this with a pretty simple formula to get accuracy.  Hit each shot 5 times using mulligans the full swing for the club.  First with no spin, then with top spin, and finish off with back spin.  Add all 5 of the shots together and divide by 5 to get a pinpoint accuracy of what that shot will do under each situation.  Also try to do all of this on a level playing field.  Downhill will roll out and up hill will slow the ball down.  St. Andrews and Bethpage Black are great courses for getting accuracy.

Now for example after you have everything figured out you know that your 64W wedge will pitch 22 yards with full top spin.  So you find yourself  20 yards from the pin then you would only use about half top on your pitch.

IMPORTANT:  While you are getting your distances down try to pay attention to the amount of roll out.  First you want to make sure that you get it on the green from the rough.  If you are 10 ft. off the green but your shot bounces and begins it’s roll at 5 ft. then you have to select a different shot.  This is why it’s important to know how all shots will react.  Also remember that each club has a different loft and will react differently.  I can’t make the same shot with a different club because it has more or less loft than the club I would like to use.

What I learned from the EZ Swing Clubs.  First that accuracy is garbage and second consistency with swing is ridiculous.  The distance on the clubs were so out of wack that I couldn’t make a decent shot.  I was long, but mostly I was way short.  The auto ding is nice, but what you will find is that the Virtual Equipment Modification is taking a drastic measure on the shots.  I’m a Legend and know how to play the game.  I would not be able to even come close to what I shoot with these clubs even from close tee boxes.  All in all I give these EZ Swing clubs 2 thumbs down.  If you are using them I suggest you get away from them.

This is the Starter Clubs.  With these clubs I get a much more realistic feel and the numbers are not all over the place on distance like they are with the EZ Swing.

People ask me all the time how I know what they should shoot.  Much of this knowledge comes from the fact that I know what my clubs and balls can do so I make slight adjustments to my math to work with their clubs and balls.  I am correct more times than I am wrong.  Take a couple of hours to map your clubs with the balls you use.  Especially for your short game.  Still today I see people try to chip a shot when they are too far from the edge of the green.
