"Tournament golf is about precision – 14 perfectly calibrated clubs and exact distances to the pin. But back at my home course, I'll often go out with seven clubs in a carry bag and not even check yardages. If the approach looks like a 5-iron, that's what I hit. Unless I don't have one – then it's a soft 4-iron or a hard 6. It gets the imagination going and helps on those in-between-yardage shots we rarely practice."
