YARDS vs. FEEL
Obviously, I know how far I carry each club, but depending on what kind of shot I want to hit, it's never set in stone. I might be trying to hit a low runner for a yardage that I could reach with a 6-iron but feel more comfortable hitting with a 5-iron. So in a lot of situations it has to do with what kind of shot I want to play.
My family's initials ("L" for me, "N" for my wife, Nel-Mare, and "J" and "S" for our girls, Jana and Sophia) adorn my Titleist Pro V1x. We bought a house in Florida since I'm now playing more in the U.S.
A FARMER'S LIFE
Whenever I have a little time off, I try to go back to my farm in South Africa. I'll spend time with my family and hunt antelope, kudu and springbok. During a 2010 hunting trip, I tore some ligaments in my ankle when I stepped in a hole. It made it tough to get going last year. I really didn't get my game all sorted out until late in the season, but I've been playing really well since. So I guess what I should do when I'm home is just spend more time lying around doing nothing.
I pay attention to the sun. I've worn sunglasses, while I play, for years and apply sunscreen. No matter where I'm playing, there's a rainsuit in my bag, too.
FUEL WHEN I NEED IT
It's a good idea to store a few energy bars in the bag. Sometimes I need one. It depends on what time I'm playing and how I'm feeling. There's not much else in my bag other than aspirin, scissors and plasters (what Americans call band-aids).
I usually have a few coins in my pocket when I'm playing, but the one I use to mark my ball on the green is a special silver coin that my wife designed for me. It has our wedding date inscribed on it.
Ping produced this gold replica of my 4-iron for the double eagle I made at the Masters. I framed the original and hung it on a wall at home in South Africa.
My Ping Rapture V2 is an older model, but it's been good to me. (It says 9 degrees, but it's actually 10.5.) The shaft is probably shorter than yours (44½ inches, True Temper Project X Black 6.5, tipped one inch).
My 3- through 9-iron are Ping S56s with True Temper Dynamic Gold X100 shafts and Golf Pride Tour Velvet grips (½-degree upright, D-1 swingweight).
I put two TaylorMade RocketBallz Tour fairway woods in my bag this year (16.5 and 19 degrees, True Temper Project X Black 6.5 shafts) and tweaked the loft on the 4-wood to reduce the launch angle and spin.
I switched to this insert putter late last year (Ping Scottsdale ZB S, 34 inches, 1-degree flat lie angle). I've been putting well since going left-hand low.
I play Ping Tour-S models (47, 54 and 60 degrees). These have heavier swing-weights than my irons (D-4 on the 60). I never hit my 60-degree with a full swing.
