If I don't have a chance to get to the range (or are short for a bucket) I usually practice at the field behind the school across the street (Avoiding tha chillins of course).Of course this field isn't mowed like a course (and I gotta chase my own shots),,,,but it's a good workout.
Now I was up there a week and a half ago...practicing flops and pitches into old boxes(nice way to hit your landing point),,,,then I hit my 7 for a while.That worked and felt smooth.....so I busted out the big stick.First drive I striped dead straight...over a soccer net...bounced twice.....then nailed the 6x6 post of the other net....coming back about 10 yds(woulda gone another 10-20 if I didn't hit the post). I had no clue to distance...I just knew it was a nice shot.A few days ago I figured gut some things on my phone.....and went to the field to play with the GPS.I zeroed it where I tee off from.....and paced off to the net I hit.Holy Crap!!! The net was at 256 YARDS!Allowing for long grass (and a post) I NAILED IT(for me).Methinks I shall use my GPS A LOT more often...... :woohoo:

be sure to use it on the golf course too, measure your shots so that you get a REAL idea of your distances especially with short irons and wedges. Going to a driving range and hitting 25 7-irons in a row can give you an idea of how far you hit that club, but you are grooving a swing with that club and that is not how it happens on the course. Measure the 7-irons you hit during a round of golf and you'll have a much more accurate average distance and can club accordingly when you are playing. Do that for all your clubs, you'll start to see your approach shots get better and better.
