I'd dump the driver, the hybrid, the 4 iron and the lob wedge.  So ...

3 wood

5 iron

6

7

8

9 iron

pw

gw

sw

putter

At this point, I don't think it would affect me much as I barely use the hybrid and lob wedge anyway.  I also don't use the 3 wood much, but at this point I'd be better off with it than the driver, plus I'd have the option of using it off the turf, whereas I certainly don't have that option with a driver.

I'm going to go backwards because those clubs are more important to me.

1.  Putter

2.  56* Wedge

3.  50* Wedge

4.  46* Wedge

5.  9I

6.  8I

7. 7I

8.  5I

9.  3H

10.  Driver

A little bit harder than I thought to eliminate 4 clubs.  I got rid of the PW, 6I, 4H, 3W

Almost exactly this for me as well. However, I'd likely drop the SW (54°) in favor of my LW (58°) as that sees a lot more action for me.

See my sig--this is what I carry mostly. Driver Taylor Raylor 16*-I have had this old club forever and will keep it. 3H 20* 4H 23* Ram 5 iron-26*--I am holding auditions for a replacement-maybe a PING Zing 4 iron or a Snake Eyes 5 iron--this is supposed to be my 170-175 club, if I don't flush it, it isn't close. PING Zing 5 iron Hogan "9 iron"-- this is my Frankenseven. When I got it, it even had a bolt through the neck! I had it reshafted and bent to about a 7 iron. This is my go to 150 yard club. Wilson 9 iron I have 1 wedge that works ok from most lies if I do my part. Either putter depending on how I feel.

Driver - DROP (It's my favorite to hit, but it only has one use)

3w

5w - DROP (don't use it much though great for that 225 +- 10 range....)

4i - DROP (my most inconsistent club - I only seem to hit it well if sitting nice in short rough, only seem to use it for 210 yard par 3s, or layup tee shots on long 4's or layup 2nd shots on long 5's....I can lay up to other clubs)

5i

6i

7i

8i

9i

pw

gw

sw

lw - DROP (I like it, but use it least - I can learn more partial SW swings)

putter

It leaves a big gap between 5i (190 or so) and 3w (240 or higher shots) - but that isn't really my most accurate range anyway

3w - (Drives to 260 anyway vs driver (285 on a good day) and when I hit it with the right swing is more consistently straight too - and I can hit off the turf for those 240-250 yard shots - and can learn some choked distances - and am willing to learn partial swings on a wood (yes, I know it's metal)....)

5i - (190 yard vs 4i at 205-210 or so) - I'm ok with that difference.  I'm not accurate at 180+, just luckier than other times.

This should let me cover the distance i want, i can choke down on the longer irons for shorter distances to cover the extra long gaps. Since i drive the ball long, i can get away with doing that very little of the time.

    • My Swing (coop6)
      @coop6 The glaring issue is you are shutting the clubface immediately after impact. Many tour players are holding the face square until halfway up on the forward swing, some even open the face after impact. I have seen a few that shut the face as well but it happens a bit later. I was doing this because my club face was too open at the top. The reason you're doing this is because on the downswing, your body is not bringing the club to the ball. Your upper body should turn and begin moving the arms through. The body should lead and pull the arms, however this does not suggest the arms should trail too much that they become disconnected. Teaching pros argue all the time whether the swing is a oull or a push. Many say it is a pull, because the modern swing is taught to have the body pull the arms as much as possible, especially for power in younger golfers. However the old school still calls it a push, because there is always connection. Remember the body guides where the arms should be going. The body must go first where the arms will follow close behind. If you look at your swing, you can see from the top your arms drop down, which is great as it prevents over the top and promotes dead hands. The problem is the body isn't leading or pulling. The body isn't doing enough on the downswing. Look at the forward swing, it is mostly arms. The arms are going where the body has never been before. Don't let the arms go where the body hasn't been.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      I normally keep a true and accurate score even though I don't belong to a club, don't have an established handicap, and don't play in any tournaments. Still, if I'm playing my usual casual round...and really playing terribly, I'll occasionally toss the scorecard in the trash. It helps me concentrate on just hitting good shots instead of focusing on making a particular score...and my game usually improves somewhat....
    • My Swing (saevel25)
      No problem! Excellent progress.
    • How to eliminate blowup holes
      Here's my approach to eliminating the big numbers. Work hard on putting and chipping. I've always maintained that anyone can learn to chip and putt. Its the only part of the game that takes zero athletic ability....just practice, technique and confidence. I miss a lot more greens than I hit...but I make a lot of pars with a chip and a putt (or a very long 2 putt). Even if I don't make par, I often have tap in bogeys. Know your strengths and weaknesses...and be honest with yourself. Use that information to determine your "go to" shots. I'm a lousy iron player, but pretty consistent with the fairway woods. If I'm having one of those days where I'm doing nothing with the irons but hitting fat shots and shanks, I'll start hitting fairway woods off the tee in order to have a fairway wood for a 2nd shot (I carry 3, 5 and 6 woods). Even if I miss the green from that distance, I'll usually be withing chip and putt range (see the last paragraph). I'm normally pretty straight with those fairway woods, but can hit a fade or slice at will....but not a draw. If I'm in a spot that requires a draw to hit the green I'll aim for a spot short of the green (or even right of the green) that I know I can hit. Then try my best to make par from there - and be please with bogey. If I'm on the other side of the fairway and need to bend it to the right I'll be more aggressive since that's a high percentage shot for me. I've had days where I'm hitting my irons so poorly, I'll resort to playing bump-and-run any place I can. Yeah, it makes me feel like a chump when I'm bumping a 7 iron from 100 yards instead of flying a wedge in there....but not a much of a chump as hacking the wedge around and making a double or triple.

      Thank you for your opinion. I have things I am working on that I am committed to 100%. I am going to continue on what I am working on.
