The Shack Shootout: Marcus Armitage
Welcome back down to the Shack, and a brand new feature to get stuck into. The ‘Shack Shootout’.
The format is simple, each guest has 9 shots, at 3 different targets; 99, 147 & 180 yards. Their score is calculated by the dispersion of each shot and added to the overall target score to give a total out of 100.
Our second guest and challenger is Challenge Tour and upcoming European Tour star Marcus Armitage. Lets see how he gets on. Can he overtake Holly at the top of the leaderboard? He’s confident..
99 Yards- Choice of club; 54 degree
I’ve got a 54, it’s a bit in between and with the cold I can’t get my lob wedge there. So I’ve got my 54 degree to try and cut it in there a little bit.
Overall score after 3 shots- 87.6
147 Yards– Choice of club; 8 iron.
In the warmth I can carry an 8 iron about 160, in the cld about 155. My 9 iron carries about 142 so I’ll just cut up a little 8 iron for this shot.
Overall score after 3 shots- 79
180 Yards- Choice of club; 6 iron
A pretty bog standard, nice solid 6 iron. Should be a good number for me.
Overall score after 3 shots- 76.7
