Be honest about how far you can hit it

Sometimes the golf you play in your mind's eye fails to correspond to reality. For example, you face a 170-yard carry-over water or a ravine, and you think 5-iron because you can hit a 5-iron 170 yards in your mind's eye. Now ask yourself: have you lost a little distance with age? Do you always hit a 5-iron 170 yards? How about hitting a 4-iron instead? There is often less trouble behind a green than in front of one. Take more clubs, and you might like the results.
