Hey guys, first post here.
I know this question has been asked many times, but I'm not sure which answer is the right answer (if there is one).
How many clubs should I be taking to the range?
The guy who's been teaching me (a good friend of mine) says that I should only take one or two clubs and focus on improving one aspect of my game.
Another golfer friend says that I should take all of my clubs, start with the pitching wedge and work up to the driver all the while focusing on improving one aspect of my game.
A third friend says that I should take all of my clubs, start with some club and practice my shots as if I was playing a course.
I understand that the most important part is focusing on one thing to improve (stance, aim, alignment etc), but all three of these guys make valid arguments to support their viewpoints.
Friend #1 says that by taking only a couple of clubs, I wont have to worry about altering my swing and can therefore focus on what I want to improve. So for example, taking a pitching wedge and a 6-iron, or a 3-wood and a driver.
Friend #2 says that progressing through all of the clubs will allow me to build rhythm and confidence.
Friend #3 says that by practicing as if I am on the course, I will train my body to transition from club to club.
I don't know who I should listen to. Is this another matter of personal preference?
