As a PGA Pro that plays with alot of high handicap golfers they seem to put there hero hat on thinking they can hit their mid to high irons onto the green. Well no so much, they either hit their shots low and left or duff it. So in this take a more LOFTED club and get back into the fairway or at least lay up to a distance that you are more comfortable with. This way you may have a chance at making PAR at worse BOGEY. Reduce your mistake and your score.
