60 years old and a USGA 7.6. Carrying the clubs is creating some back issues....but I always walk and hate carts. Solution: lighten the bag with graphite shafts in the irons. No success re-shafting, so narrowed down to two options: Callaway Hot X Pro with Graphite, or Bridgestone J40 dual pockets with Aerotech Steel Fiber shafts. What complicates this is the interest in the Bridgestones is based on research only....I can't find any place where I can hit them!! Thoughts?
Finding the right set of irons
This. Or learn to not hate carts. Maybe just walk half the time and when you do, only bring half your clubs, and the rest of the time take a cart.
The last thing I would do is alter my clubs just for their carrying weight.
EDIT: Also, you can get rid of whatever unnecessary junk is in your bag, and get a super lightweight carry bag.
