I would get rid of one of your 19 degree clubs. Or I would look at the course I was about to play and see what club I probably wouldn't hit.  the pro a lot of times take wedges in and out of clubs depending on what they need for specific rounds. One thing is maybe find a launch monitor and hit all yoru clubs and find a good sistance between each club and see what one you could part with.

If you can't get rid of your 5 wood, get rid of the 3H. I don't see a reason to keep two of the same degree clubs.  If you can't part with either of them then get rid of your putter.

Probably dump the 3 hybrid. You can choke up on the 5W a little if you need to shave some distance off.

Are there courses where you would prefer the 3H over the 5W?

How far (carry) do you hit your driver, 5-wood, hybrid, and 4-iron? Out of curiosity, why can't you dump the 5-wood?

I am assuming you are very comfortable with the 5 wood on and off the tee. If yes, you could remove the 3 wood.  You would lose a bit off the tee, but you would be hitting with a club you are very comfortable with.  Do you use the 3w for anything other than tee shots?  I wouldn't take out any scoring clubs, 8 iron through wedges.

I'd say seriously reconsider dropping the 5 Wood but if you're dead against it then you should drop the 19* Hybrid and switch the 4 iron for a 22*/23* Hybrid.

The hybrid won't be as workable as an iron by it'll give you a flexible option for blasting out of the rough on wayward par 4 and 5 drives.

Toss the putter.

Putt with your 4 iron.

Or...

Toss your 4 iron. Seriously...you should be able to choke down on the 3 hybrid ... or hood your putter if you need some extra distance.

dump the hybrid.

My RBZ 5wood clearly pounds out of nearly everything you can think of...

I have the adams hybrids ... love em... but when I put the rbz5wood in I took it out. it was superfluous.

If you can't take the 5 wood out of the bag, then dump the hybrid. Makes no sense to carry 2 long clubs of the same loft unless they get you very different results. If that's the case, then I agree with old1964, dump the 4 iron and just choke down on the hybrid.....

You're either a FW guy or a hybrid guy, so the clear options are 3 woods and 1 hybrid, or a 2/2 split. I'd drop the 5 wood and pickup a 4h to match the 3h. Having the pair you'll use them more, and get better with them... Making the 5w obsolete. If you're like my dad... And need the 5w... You could probably drop the 3h and pick up a 4h and 5h pair! JK! I make fun of his 7w!

    • The BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.
      I'm enjoying this, but it could really do with a bit more pulling power. Just a shame not to see a few of the top European Tour players like Sergio or Rory not play it.
    • My Swing (b101)
      It's just feeling a little bit more natural than it used to and I'm not stepping on the course with 5 or more swing thoughts, which is nice! I don't think it'll take much work getting back to making progress and I'm definitely seeing that some of the changes I've made have stuck - ball flight is really high compared to what I'm used to and the ball turns right to left about 50% of the time and stays straight for 30%. It's the 20% of rubbish, either duck hooks or generally wayward tee shots that I want to clear up, which is going to be this morning's target on the range. I didn't end up hitting the range yesterday - a mate texted to ask to play a round, so I went for that. What was obvious is that the little 9 hole course, where I don't need anything above a 4 iron, has been great for my iron play, but that the 3 wood, driver and course management need a bit of a refresher course. Shot an 86 with a ridiculous 7 penalty strokes (4 on one tough par 3), which says it all really as I don't normally take any! It is a tight track though and there is OB all over the place, but no excuse for the few 'head off' moments which prevented me scoring well. It was match play as well so I guess that's part of it... In short summary: Driving/3 wood - pretty poor and I'm just not comfortable over the ball with those clubs. On a longer course, I'd have struggled. Long irons - good, bar that atrocity of a par 3, where I think I'll just aim way left next time and take the safe miss. Both of those were actually really nice strikes, but went dead straight rather than drawing like I had expected. Still, my fault entirely for aiming towards the trouble  Mid-short irons - mostly pretty good actually. Put 6/14 approaches from outside 100 yards to (3/4 from within 100) inside 15 yards and bar two long bunker shots, the rest were manageable. Putting - really pleased again; I probably only made one that I wouldn't have expected (birdie on 13), but there's a lot of break on the greens and I thought it was pretty decent for a first time out in a while. http://www.gamegolf.com/player/benpage101/round/930037 Overall, pretty close to where I'd want it to be, but a better decision on 6, some better drives and a bit more luck on odd holes (like 16) and it'd have been a great round. I'd take that for the first time in ages. Should be able to post some video this afternoon.
    • What would a PGA Tour player shoot at your home course?
      And also, "speculation" is what the thread is all about! Sure, I'm placing the Tour guys on a pedestal but they DESERVE it. Yes "Golf is Hard", but those guys are GOOD. Low 60s are very much a possibility in any tournament they tee it up in, let alone on a public course that was designed with the average golfer in mind. Let's give credit where credit is due! If all the players from 75-125 on the money list decided to go out and play a new course (of "moderate difficulty" for amateurs) every week for the next 2 months, course records would be getting smashed all over the place. They might shoot the odd 70 or 72, but you darn well bet there would be a lot of 63's and 64's in there too. Regardless of poor course conditions, lack of course knowledge or anything like that, they are gonna make birdies in droves and they are going to go low!
    • The this math does not compute thread
      I was at a garage sale with my son who was like 10 years old at the time. The seller had a box full of cheap toys with a handwritten sign on the box that read "$1 each, or 2 for $3".  I nudged my son and pointed to the sign with my eyes (because the seller was standing right there). He glanced down at the sign and immediately grinned and shook his head in disbelief. And don't get me going on auctions. People will pay more for used crap than they know they would if purchased brand new, simply because they get caught up in a bidding war. The best part is listening to them try and justify it afterwards.
