What's your go to club? - Page 3

post #37 of 68

My go to club is quite often the driver with a few adjustments.

Coming from a tight course with plenty of OB and bush riddled with black snakes, straight drives are very important. Up short par 4's I hit a 2 or 3 iron but sometimes when the wind is in to one's face, an iron just wont do. I go to a "gripped-down piercer" - as I call it. I grip down the grip, the stance narrows naturally and the swing is a little more three quarters. I imagine a low, piercing flight that doesn't get to high (this vision feeds one's body to make the set-up changes).

 

The shot comes out low, straight and running (the club-face remains nice and straight, right down the line). I love playing it.

Just a note on the path of the club... I want it coming straight down the line, not inside, not outside with not much rolling of hands; straight ball flight; 3/4 swing and rip'n it. a3_biggrin.gif

+1  (was playing much better until the last couple of rounds.  Walked off the 13th fairway this morning.)

Gap wedge. If I'm 100-110 I can put it to 10 feet every time.

my burner 3 hybrid. i just started using my 3 wood again after getting it gripped, but with the hybrid i can hit a low stinger that rolls for days or a nice high fade that lands soft.

 

i hit two greens,one from 200 and one from 210 with it last time i played. (i hit zero with every other club in my bag)

 

i want to like my driver more so bad. it's a good driver, extremely forgiving and if i just get it in my head to lay off it it flies straight and true.

You know, sometimes I fan that 2,

And sometimes I catch that 3 a little thin.

And I've hit flyers with the 4,

I've hooked my 5,

I've shanked the 6,

Skulled the 8,

Fatted the 9,

Chili-dipped the wedge,

And I've bladed the sand!

There is ole Mr. Three-wiggle, isn't there?

But then there's the seven iron.  I never miss with the seven iron.

I'm really starting to fall in love with 9-iron chip and knockdown shots (very old school).

I'll take this bet

Probably my 6 iron lately. It's been solid. But, really, all my irons have been reliable lately, which is a strange state of affairs.

 

The 7 iron is a close second, particularly because I rely on it for punches and putt-style rolling chips, so in terms of a "go-to" club in the sense of the club you go to when you're in trouble, it fits the bill. But the 6 iron has been preferred.

Pitching wedge (48 degrees). Every time I get take it out the bag I'm looking forward to hitting the shot. Visual evidence suggests I probably practice with it too much too; should be hitting the clubs I hate, like my 5 iron. Which can kiss my pimply white ass. c1_cursing.gif

5 iron

post #49 of 68

Mine is the club house because that's where the bar is...but seriously my lob wedge has been treating me soooooo good lately.

post #50 of 68

8 iron.  For me it's a good chip shot club. 

post #51 of 68

I thought about this a little more.  My favorite club has been my 7-iron.  I think it's because this is the club I was using when getting fitted for an iron set.  I tried 7 irons from each set until I found the best one and it just stuck.  When thinking about yardage, I start at my 7i and work my way up or down to select the right club.

Nickent 3dx rc 2h 17*. Arrow straight from the fairway, punch shot from under trees and bump shots from the fringe ,come to think about it maybe this and a putter is all I need ....and about 50% more skill.

post #53 of 68

I don't remember hitting a terrible shot with my pitching wedge. Weird, because I can sure shank a sand wedge or a gap wedge.

post #54 of 68

Pitching wedge. 100-105 yards consistant.
