I have room for a club in my bag, what should I get?

9 posts in this topic

Currently, the clubs I use and their distances:

Driver: 230-240, the rest of the clubs measured off the dirt:

3W: 210

5W: 195

7W: 182

9W: 170

6I: 160

7I: 150

8I: 140

9I: 130

PW: 120

SW: 100

LW: 80

I can step on all those clubs and get an extra five yards if I have to.  I just do a lower finish and draw them a bit.

Currently I have a 5I in my bag but since it goes about the same distance as the 9W and I hit the 9W better it gets reserved for punch shots.  I pull it about once every five rounds or so.

I'm thinking of getting a 64 degree wedge.  I'm not very good at taking distance off clubs, so I have real trouble sometimes from the 50-60 yard distance.  I often end up just hitting a REALLY HARD pitch and I don't think it's very productive.

Do you agree that this is probably my best plan?  And does anyone have experience with a 64?

Thanks in advance.

I suppose you could go with a GW as well... Something for that 110 yd range.

Yeah, but that seems to be less of a problem.  50-60 yards seems more common.  Third shot on Par 5s, forced (or unintentional) layups on Par 4s.  Plus, knocking 10 yards off a 120 yard club (8.3%) is easier than knocking 20-30 yards off an 80 yard club (~31.25%).

At least, that's the way it seems to me.

I've got a 64° and can hit it about 45-50 max. One thing I will say is that it will get the up and up and up. And it will land soft dead on a dime. I typically use it closer to the green for flops and super-flops or to get out of really really deep bunkers.

See, that sounds good to me.  The problem with taking a ton off my LW swing to hit it 50 yards is that it kills the spin.

How far do you hit your other wedges?

I've had this same debate myself many times. I ended up just spending a bunch of time practicing with my 52 and 56 and learned the shots I needed with those. Now pretty much anything from that distance in is a 52.

My 64 is both my favorite club in the bag and the one that's been with me the most years. I tend to usually go for the pin so I short side myself alot. The 64 is great when you have so little green to work with. Now keep in mind that I set up with my weight very forward and chip/pitch with more of a putting stroke so I'm delofting the club to about 60 or less but can still hit the super flop when I need to.

Sounds like you pitch like me.

I can't find a lefty one of these anywhere.  I'm going to just buy a $30 Acer off Ebay, see how it goes.  It's pretty much all I've found.

      How does the bank lose money? Is inflation that bad that the 30,000 euros of interest is not enough to cover it? Is it because the bank no longer has that money at their disposal to invest for a potentially larger return on their investment when compared to a mortgage?

      paradoxal bank fact : in our banks in france if you take a mortgage of 100 000 euros for 20 years at 2,5 interest rate you will probably pay close to 30 000 euros of interest. this seams huge to customers. nevertheless the bank might loose money or have à max a 200 euros margin per year. the only way we make money is on the mortgage insurance policy part and getting a long time customer in the bank.

    • Myrtle Beach in early March part duex
      Okay I think you may be a little confused on your location...You said that you are staying at Holiday Sands North close to the Boardwalk.  Your Hotel is centrally located in Myrtle Beach.  A lot of people not familiar of the area mistakenly think that "North Myrtle Beach" is referring to an area in the Northern part of Myrtle Beach.  Actually it is a separate city that is located a good ten miles from where you are staying.  The closest "North Myrtle Beach" courses to you would be the Barefoot Resort courses which are about 13 miles from you and are considered higher end courses where you will be paying probably around $125 per round to play unless you book a package deal or play with a member.  The next closest North Myrtle Beach courses which are mid-tiered and a little more price friendly that may seem to be what you are looking for are a little farther north into North Myrtle located probably about 15 to 17 miles from where you are staying.   The closest courses to where you are staying include Myrtlewood, Pine Lakes Country Club, River Oaks Plantation, World Tour, and the Legends courses.  All are probably right within the amount of travel time that you are looking at.  I would second the earlier poster that you contact @bnlongdriver.  Tell him (Brian) what you are looking for and he will set you up nicely.  I would definitely avoid GolfNow for anything related to Myrtle Beach.  Very few courses down there work with Golf Now and the few that do are lower tiered courses that you probably wouldn't want to play as there are many better choices for the money that you will be playing.  Looks like you will be going right as the peak golf season is starting to get underway so last minute deals, although probably available, will be a bit more difficult to come by.  However, if this is the route that you want to take, again I would contact Brian as he has the ability to get a lot of very good "48 hour" rates.  If you go ahead and contact him now and let him know that's the way you want to go, he will be able to keep you in mind and as the time of your arrival nears will have a better idea of what to find you.
