The 15th Club in the Bag - Yardage Book!

This month we talk about your 15th club in the bag - a yardage book!  Yes, you can save several shots in a round of golf by knowing distances to hazards, where out of bounds lines are, etc.  You will NEVER see a PGA or LPGA Tour player hit a shot without first discussing the shot with their caddie.  The caddie will always refer to their yards book which not only has the distances, but also some notes pertaining to that particular player.

Many amateur golfers can get more distance just by making a simple adjustment in the positioning of their feet, which promotes proper hip turn through the downswing . . .
