I don't comprehend your continued, repeated, backward logic. How do you not see it? If your friends, and the rest of the world in general can't even hit a stock shot with each club (as in the shot it was meant for, no thinking involved) how in tar-frickin-nation do you expect us to be able to pull off "imaginative" shots with those clubs (or less clubs)?
You make zero sense. (Actually, no that's being too generous ... you make negative sense. You actually suck some of the sense out of the rest of the world into some sort of black hole where it disappears for good)
I believe the point is, your not going to be able to pull of these shots, but at least your trying them, and it gets you to learn how to feel the club work. To me it makes perfect sense in a way to practice. I would never consider this in competition or for a match, but for a change of pace, its interesting trying to play golf that way. Its like a game i know, were you have teams, and the opposing group picks the tee shot you must use as best ball. So you might end up in the middle of the trees when your best tee shot might be in the middle of the fairway. Its a nasty version of two man scramble, but its interesting.
Honestly i see many golfers force there selves around the course, i see them line up at trees with an iron even if they miss the tree is going into the limbs. If you practice differently, then you can develop a sense for different shots. Every level of play can learn from this. When i was a 20 handicap, on the range i would image a 9 segment (like a tic-tac-toe box), then i would hit cuts and draws into those boxes. This was on the range, but it helped me learn feel of the club, rather than mechanics. It helped me a lot because now i can take my better mechanics, and hit more shots when i need to. Like i have been trapped behind a tree on the left, and i have to take it low, so i would just put the ball far back in my stance, aim my body way right, shut the clubface down, and really snap through the ball and hit a very low rocket duck hook. You can literally make the ball go 30 yards out and take a near 90 degree hook left, its a useful shot. Or, this one time i was 5 yards above the green on an embankment, next to a tree, so i stood with my back to the pin, and with my left hand holding the club, just chipped the ball on the enbankment and and had it roll out to about 15 feet from the pin. But what this also teaches me is trajectory. When i was in the trees, i had one shot only, and it was a knockdown wedge that had to fit this triangle opening. I had a gut feeling this was a perfect trajectory, it was, went right through the opening, but i caught it slightly long and just ended up over the green.
So there is some use to playing around with the golf club no matter what the level of play, because it brings focus into the shot, and gets you more aware of the golf club. Its a good practice tool. Its just like saying, ok i am going to hit this short side chip shot with ever club in the bag. Well, you might have to find a way to hit that chip shot with a 3 iron, you may never do it, but it gets you thinking more.
