I thank you all for your responses.

As the weather down here near Dallas looks reasonably well I shall continue with my off-season golf adventures. Yesterday consisted of a visit to nearby vacant jr. high football field with three wedges. I am attempting to put into practice the ideas of Dave Pelz from his short game bible. I have found that hitting from between and underneath one goal post toward the other is an excellent way of getting good yardage lengths established.

For those who have not found Mr. Pelz and his short game book, he urges one to go through a series of measuring your distances with four wedges hit from a 7:30, 9:00 and 10:30 swing amounts. As I only have three wedges in my bag I have modified the suggestion accordingly. Practicing on the football field with about 25 balls per wedge, per swing amount is beginning to show results. Hopefully with about ten more sessions and the start of spring golf (early March) I will have firmed up my distances with a degree of accuracy and will be able to see what this work has done for my score.
