Bag setup. Wanna add the 14th club.

14 posts in this topic

Hey everyone,

currently this is my setup:

10.5° Cobra AMP Cell Driver
4-16.5° Cobra AMP Fairway Wood
4H-22° TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Rescue Hybrid
5 - PW Nike VR_S Covert Irons
50° & 56° Cleveland 588 RTX CB Wedge
60° Cleveland 588 RTX CB Wedge
Model 7 Odyssey White Hot XG 2.0 Putter

13 clubs... I feel I've plenty of them to work around the greens, but I feel I'm lacking distance. I firstly thought about adding the 4 iron (I don't think it collides with the 4H hybrid) but then I thought about getting a 3H hybrid (I fell in love with Titleist's 913H hybrid because it can be assembled with an Aldila RIP Phenom shaft which I like a lot). I know they are different clubs but hear the rest ;)

I also think a Cobra AMP Cell Fairway Wood 5-7 could fit...

Summarizing it all we've got:

4 iron (mostly because I already own it so I shouldn't spend extra money to get it);

3H (19 degrees) Titleist 913H Hybrid (because of its shaft and extra yardage than the iron);

5 - 7 (17 - 20 degrees) Cobra AMP Cell Fairway Wood.

Thanks all! :D

I have the Titleist 910 in 21 and 27 degree.  Love them.  Easy to hit, and land  easy.  I feel the 910h is better than the 913 due to it's ease to use.

I'd go with a hybrid, either a 3 or 5. Either way you close the distance gap between clubs. If you can hit your 4 iron well, even better since that's like $150 you don't have to spend.

Id get a Cobra amp cell 5-7 Wood. It has adjustable loft so you have from a 5 to 7 wood in one club. I have a Bio Cell Driver and love Cobra products but that is just Bias

The only gap I see in your bag is between 4-wood and driver and that is marginal at best.  Adding a 4-iron would be silly considering you already have a 4-rescue.  These are interchangeable clubs.   Adding a 3-rescue is nearly interchangeable with a 4-wood so I don't like that change either.

I believe your bag would be more complete if you ditch the 4-wood and add a 3 & 5 wood to replace it.

Or a 3-wood and 3-hybrid. Either way.

I think sometimes by wanting an extra club at the long end of the bag it can end up changing the whole top end set up completely! But hey! Trying and buying new clubs is all part of the fun! Costly, expensive fun!!

My bag is pretty much same as yours (I just play a 4i vs your 4h). I would be lost without my 3 hybrid - depending on your gapping, I'd probably start my quest there. If you really want your mind blown... I would try a good 3 wood, 3 hybrid and 4 iron on the low end (to me, having one hybrid as a go to club is enough).

I have been playing 4W + 7W for three seasons now, and is more reliable than the old 3W + 5W.

I also carry an Adams 4H. When I play my older X20 Tour irons, the 4H goes farther than the 4i; when I play the TM SLDRs, the 4i and the Adams 4H go about the same distance.

Seems like if there is a gap or duplication of similar clubs it's between driver and 4w and 4h and 5i. The VRS 5i is 24 degrees at 38.75 so pretty much a 4i. If it was me and I hit my 5i consistently I'd look to redo everything between the driver and 5i or rethink the wedges at 48-52-56-60. His pw is basically a 9i at 44 degrees.

Thanks all for your important imputs!

In the end I bought a 3H (Titleist's 913H). I'll prolly remove the 4i and 4w going for a more classic 3w-5w setup, but this will happen in the future as I don't have any haste to do that anytime soon.

If you're using it off the deck, I think the 16.5 4 wood serves your long wood purpose. You'd have to hit a 3 wd on the screws all the time to gain a difference

The 22h is like a 7 wd but may not go as high and is more like a 3i

You seem to know your bag, and it's the 4i slot to where you're looking -- I'd find a 25 hybrid to fill the slot (or something that can be adjusted to fill the slot)

It depends on where you want your distance -- long term you may want to look at a 3wd, 5wd setup if you're looking at off the deck longer distance. Plenty of used clubs, or on sale clubs out there at golf stores where you can talk people down. They certainly are giving customers anything at trade-in.

I also am bagging 13 clubs. I'm wondering if it's a good idea to go to 3 wedges. Given that my approach iron has a loft of 49, I'm thinking of adding 52, 56, and 60 degree wedges.

    • Question on Twitter: Easiest Way to Shoot Lower Scores in a Week
      Something that would probably save most golfers a couple of strokes without any extra effort would be aiming at the center of the green on approach shots. Best bang for your buck practice wise would be short game practice. 
    • How long should my ball test be?
      Just wanted some thoughts on how long I should test each ball Im considerring. What is a good sample size. 9 holes, 18 or even longer?
    • Question on Twitter: Easiest Way to Shoot Lower Scores in a Week
      What I have learned as I have improved and keep reading about in Bob Rotella's books is that the best way to shoot the score of your life is to focus on practicing the short game, but mostly developing confidence in your putting. Since most of our strokes consist of the short game, by getting just a percentage better there it will translate to more overall success than anywhere else.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      @Golfer2223 what does forearm rotation have to do with the shoulders?-They are not connected. Forearms can rotate regardless of what the shoulders are doing.
    • No Forearm Rotation - Biggest Swing Flaw?
      Correct. For example: He also says that the forearms rotate during the backswing. Which we know that they do, and quite a bit. How much is too much? On the left, below in both images, is his depiction of zero rotation: On the right, in both images, he demonstrates nearly 90° of turning at the wrist. based on what I know, little of this comes from the upper arm - the majority of it comes from the forearm. Do you disagree with any of that, @Golfer2223? Notice one thing, then, too please. On the left, the plane of the left wrist is pretty much parallel to the sagittal plane. On the right images, it's perpendicular to it. What do we find at the top of the backswing of the game's best players? The issue now appears to be simply trying to determine what in the world you mean by the bold above, particularly because there's really nothing "natural" about the golf swing. What feels natural to you, or seems natural to you, is definitely not natural to all or possibly even the majority of golfers. in my experience I've learned that you can't really talk about the golf swing in terms of what's "natural" or not. The truth of the matter is that for golfers who do this the right amount "naturally" then it simply isn't something we talk about in a lesson. For golfers who do it an improper amount, it may or may not be their priority. Here's a wrist graph from AMM for a very, very good golfer. Note that the wrist (blue line, top left) starts with 50° of supination. It pronates, relative to the upper arm, to a position of 16° pronation at the top. That's a pronation from 50° on one side of the zero mark to 16° on the other side - a pronation of 66°. This doesn't even account for how much the upper arm rotates - the forearm has rotated 66° from the setup position. (Note that above when I said 25° or 32°, that was relative to totally neutral, not to the setup position. The forearms rotated quite a bit more than the 25-32° cited, because they started somewhat supinated.) This graph and these numbers are not unusual. Look, @Golfer2223, it's somewhat incumbent upon you to be clear in what you're saying. It's far from ideal to say things like how you expect to see "zero forearm rotation" (or whatever) but then to claim that it's "relative to the natural shoulder motion" (obviously both paraphrased). Nobody has a clue what you mean by the "natural shoulder" whatever, and many would disagree that anything in this topic area is "natural" to begin with. So, please clarify what you're saying, and be precise and use specific words, or at least define them, provide examples, or both.
