Dumping woods and long irons all together...

10 posts in this topic

I have absolutely terrible luck with my 4 wood anymore and I never hit my 3-iron and rarely hit my 4-iron should I get more hybrids or just leave it alone? As a side note struggling with wedges a bit, distance control mostly... but I digress... I was thinking of getting a 14° hybrid to use as a "Driver" and my 17° hybrid as my fairway wood... then get like a 21 or 22° hybrid and dump the 3-iron, Then go 4-PW, 52°, 58°, putter

Do what you like, but don't pretend to have a single figure handicap for much longer.

On a decent course you'll be struggling to get near a lot of the par 4s in regulation.

When this happens, a sub 90 round becomes a good score and you're relying on 1 putts for pars.

You have to persevere with your driver.

You didn't mention if you were having problems with your driver, but depending on the courses you play the driver can be an important weapon and at 460cc they are easier than ever to hit.  As far as the long irons, I went one step further and replaced all of my long and mid irons (2 - 6) with hybrids and my game has improved because of it.  I gave up my 4 and 7 wood, finding the hybrids much more consistent for my swing.  I don't know your age but I am 62 and in the last few years my iron yardage dropped dramatically and I gave up the 2 and 3i a long time ago.

You have a much lower HCP than I do and I obviously do not know why you are not hitting certain clubs, but you should have the talent (with a lesson) to get the driver going - I love the 2h and use it to drive shorter holes, but it is not close to my Ping G15 driver in distance.

I hope you work it out and have fun doing so.

I'm getting older... and it's been hurting me to swing as hard as necessary... I'm actually a 12.4 now I just haven't updated it in a while... Inconsistent Driver yes... I hit my 17 degree straight as an arrow 220-225 ish... So a 14-degree would go like maybe 240 ish right? The longest par four at Newman is 450... could it work while I go take a lesson on my driver?

Have you looked at the TM SLDR mini-driver or an RBZ stage 2 3W? Seems like you should be able to get 260+ with these.

Yes I have but I'm a cook... can't afford 270, for a driver or 150 for the 3-wood as I have a daughter... I for the most part buy my club used or occasionally will by a new one on clearance but like $100 is the most I can spend on a new single club

Most people don't like to spend full price when they can wait a year or two and get the club at half the price. I only know one person who buys new clubs every new season @hacker101 .

The original RBZ 3W is available for something like $79 new on line, or about $54 used good condition.

That's not true, I played my last set for 18 months.

I recall you having a set of Cobras that replaced your G25 and now you replaced the Cobras with the G30. Let's see, that's on average 6 months per set? :whistle:
