I have a Callaway FT-I 3W. It's a "squareway" wood.... I've only hit one good shot with it, and I've had it for 2 years... I think it sucks.
Can't think of any use for it... Especially off the fairway!
I use to keep a 5 wood in the bag. After 1.5 seasons and about 5 shots with it I took it out of the bag and made room for an extra wedge. If you have clubs you are not using in your bag it really does make sense to take them out of play and put something in its place that will be more useful to your game.
Then why have it in the bag? I have a number of clubs which I either don't hit well, or don't care to spend the additional practice time to be proficient with (I don't carry a LW for that reason). They all live in my garage. The clubs in my bag I do use. For most rounds on my home course I will use every club in the bag at least once.
Until recently I had a 60° wedge in there that I used once or twice every few rounds and should have used less than that. I've swapped it for my old 5W which I'd forgotten about.
I use most of the clubs in my bag occasionally. Probably the 5I the least, because the 6I is sort of my "break-even" club in terms of distance plus control. If I have a longer shot than that, I usually want the extra distance of the 4I (or longer) because I'm not playing for a target. Still I probably use it every other round or so.
I think it depends .....
If you play at only one course, you will develop a certain routine and favourite landing areas, from which several clubs might well be used very little.
I use a carrying bag, so if I can play using 11 or 12 clubs, I will do so.
But on a different course I bring all 14.
I haven't had a 60* wedge in the bag for at least a year. In that 60-70 yard range, I'm better and more consistent taking some off of a 56. Around the greens, I've been fine opening up my 56 if needed. I pulled the 60 to put a 3-iron back in the bag. It's windy here and the 3 is handy hitting low punches.
I'm pretty good about filtering my bag. I currently use 13 clubs ever since the 3 iron came out of the bag. The 3 iron goes back in for some courses but usually stays home. The 60° wedge got the boot middle of last season since I always tried some hero shot that either ended up really good or really bad. I just manage the course to try and not put myself where I'd need the 60. All other clubs see regular use or else they would've gotten the boot already.
I think last season I hit my 4 iron once or twice the most. There are not that many par 3's in the 210-215 yards out here and I can get away by chocking down on the 3i most of the times. For most of the courses I play, I took it out and replace it with a 56 wedge. Although this year I'm starting to play a 21* hybrid instead of my 3i and I'm putting the 4i back in play for those moments that I have a long shot that I have to shape. So the 56 is going to be in the garage most likely.
