After sorting out the distance of my 4 wood which is 240-245 yards off the deck, I am considering just pulling the 3 wood and going from there. I have reached quite a few par 5's in two with that 3 wood and love it dearly but I also love the 4 wood. I am going to try to pick up a 15° just like them anyway at some point. I would like different views on why you would keep or ditch a club to help me decide. Plus it is fun to speculate the scenarios.

Would have to know the yardage gaps between your 13.5*, your 17*, and whatever is the next club. Also would have to know how many clubs you carry to know whether you would drop a wedge or a fairway wood. Most people now are only carrying one fairway wood and a hybrid or two.
I currently have 15* and 18* fairway woods. If I want to carry my 60* wedge I have to take the 18* out of the bag.
(I usually end up leaving out the 60*).
If I get a stronger 3W (which I'm considering) I will put the 18* in the closet until I'm no longer good enough to hit the stronger 3W.
Edit: Disregard the gaps. When I clicked the link I didn't see the poll above that showed them.
As you are isn't bad. Exchanging the 13.5* for a 15* isn't bad. Wouldn't pull the 3I. Gaps at the lower end are more important than gaps at the higher end and pulling the 3I would be a can of worms I wouldn't see a need for (unless you can't hit it).Edited by MS256 - 8/23/14 at 9:07pm
