Golf Club Hoarder?

I'm starting to think serious golfers don't live in 900 sq ft. 2 bedroom apartments. But hell, Becky (my wife) says if we every get a 3 bedroom home, we won't be able to have another child, because the extra bedroom would have 30 sets of clubs in it... Don't believe me... Here's a comprehensive list of every club I own. (Not including Becky's one set on Alina's clubs)

Drivers: Tour Edge EX9, XRail, Callaway Steelhead III, Wilson 1200 GE (actually wood).

Fairways: Tour Edge EX9 (4+7), XRail 3 and 4, Wilson 1200 GE 3 and 4.

Hybrids: Adams Pro DHY,  Tour Edge EX9 3h, XRail 3h and 4h.

Iron Sets: Tour Edge EXI (4-PW, AW, SW, I ordered the matching 3-iron), Tour Edge V-Blade (1-PW), Tour Edge Exotics CU (4-PW, AW, SW)

Individual Irons: Tour Edge Exotics CU 6-iron (separate from the set), TechPower ZX-20 2-iron (I built it myself, its kind of a souvenir from the first iron set I built)

Wedges: Tour Edge CB Pro S (54°, 58°), Tour Edge TGS 304 (50°, 54°, 58°)

Putters: Tour Edge DG Tour Series V1.3, Tour Edge Bazooka Geomax 05, Tour Edge Backdraft GT-2, TaylorMade White Smoke (the Daytona looking one), Wilson Augusta, and my "ancient" Ping Zing 2 I found in a second hand shop with the grip in poor poor condition... So I put a SuperStroke Fatso on her and showed her some love.

It might not be as bad as some I've seen but in our small apartment it is.

Honestly I expected to see more.  Only four drivers?  I realized I had the same problem a couple of years ago so I decided to organize them all into distinct "bags" and buy more clubs to fill out each complete "set" (and tees, balls, gloves, etc.).  Now all my clubs and gear are arranged into six distinct sets that are ready to hit the course at any moment.  This way I figure if I need to pare it down in a hurry I can unload them 14 at a time through craigslist.  Problem is, I can't imagine letting any of the six bags go quite yet!

I also have the TEE CU AW and like it quite a bit.  I'm tempted to pick up the rest of the set but then I'd have to sell another 4-PW to keep things balanced.  For you, how do the CU's rank among your other irons?

The CU's are similar head size to my EXI's, I hate the Dynalite 90's with a bloody passion though.... which is why my "in the bag" set has KBS Tour 105.

I am the opposite.  Every old set or club typically is given to a relative or friend.  A couple times the old club(s) were current enough to trade in for a credit.  I have a few misc. clubs in the basement but throwing together a complete additional set for a visitor is impossible.

Often items we consider collectible turn out to be worth little down the road.  Things one rarely or never uses should be donated, sold or recycled.

I typically trade-in extra clubs (once sold extras on eBay), give away extra clubs to my college age nephew or friends, and only keep an extra set of irons, a few extra hybrids because I can't get comfortable with any of them, and a few driver shafts.

3 complete sets of irons. 

A few spare FW and wedges that are just orphans and driver or two that are moth balled. 

Not too bad in the general scheme of things, but it sure baffles my wife.

Wow, I'm embarrassed to say.  Aside from what's in my bag I have 6 sets of irons, including two old sets of Pings and two sets of MacGregor blades.  Have four drivers and 8 or 9 fairway woods.  Have at least 10 putters.  And several misc clubs.  

There are four of my putters that I cycle through the bag.  (The dang things just quit working for me every so often. lol)  And I play a set of MacGregor blades once in a whilemaybe once per summer or so.  The rest of them just sit gathering dust.  Guess I should sell them off, huh?

    • Agreed. It depends what you value, how you derive worth. If you take the economic concept of utils (a unit of happiness/joy/satisfaction) - and having PXG provides you with 3x more utils than a $1000 set of clubs (plus spending the remaining 2k on other things) then it is worth it . Utils don't only come from 'better golf' or 'lower scores'. For me - I derive very few utils from cars, I just don't get it. My wife and I drive a basic, very high value car. I get my utils from reliability, value for money, that is says something about me (frugal, sensible). My best friend loves cars, and gets his utils from european styling, luxury etc. My pushbike costs about 6x what he does. We are both better off me having a cheap car and an expensive bike and him vice versa. This is why you can't argue with what other people value - it is deeply subjective, not rational.
    • I have been super busy renovating a house I recently bought, so I haven't been following golf closely, and I'm very late to the party on this one.  My opinions have probably already been stated many times because they seem fairly standard and obvious to me, but I'll chime in anyway. First, I'm very surprised at the level of animosity against Phil.  Talk about "What have you done for me lately?," here's a guy who has spent the last 25+ years doing his best to be as gracious to fans as he could, probably the best since Arnie, and yet he has one brain fart and the knives are out.  I know all about FIGJAM and Phony Phil, but you HAVE to be phony to be nice to the galleries, because they are full of idiots.  Don't get me wrong, I'm one of them, and most of us are respectful of the players and the game, but even if it's only 10% that are loud and obnoxious, that's thousands at any one event, and the fact they are the loudest and pushiest triples their impact.  Seriously, if he smiles and chats and signs autographs for an hour when he'd rather be relaxing somewhere, I guess technically that's phony, but in a good way, so what's wrong with it?  I mean, how many people would actually prefer to hang around a bunch of half-drunk morons than go home to their wives? I'm also aware that there are many people who have nothing against Phil, but still think he should have been DQd.  And I'm one of them.  I like him, I like the way he tries to be fan friendly, and I don't care about his personal life -- and even if I did, I haven't heard much bad about him, other than his ego, as if being arguably the second best golfer of his generation, especially when that generation (IMO) includes the GOAT, shouldn't inflate his ego. But when I say he should have been DQd, I mean in a perfect world, which this obviously isn't, because golf rules are often stupid.  In this situation, the rule was properly applied, so he didn't get DQd, but the rule is wrong.  Lots of the rules are wrong.   Up to a couple of years ago, you could get DQd for signing an incorrect score card, even when you had no idea it was incorrect.  The USGA and R&A thought that deserved a DQ, but deliberately hitting a moving ball didn't.  It's crazy. People say he gained an advantage from his action.  Well, duh.  I've seen guys who hit a poor approach, got an absolutely dead lie, but then got a free drop because a TV cable was nearby.  Then they got another free drop because the bleachers were in the way.  Then they got another free drop because of a sprinkler head.  And by the time they were done, they went from being in the rough in a horrible lie to being on the fringe, or even on the green.  Talk about gaining an advantage. And the rules official was directing them every step of the way.  I repeat, it's crazy. This is a golden opportunity for them to change the rule.  Deliberately hit a moving ball, DQ.  Very simple.
    • The player can choose to call his ball unplayable in any circumstance.  He is the only judge of this.  In the case you mention here he was taking one of the water hazard options, rather than an unplayable lie.  One could decide his ball sitting right next to the hole is unplayable, and go back to where he hit previously, at the cost a stroke.  Of course, he could be rightfully called a sandbagger, at that point!
    • Yes.  I welcome the challenge.  I'll pick appropriate tees and do my best.  I am going to play a Pete Dye course on my birthday this year, although it isn't necessarily among the toughest of his courses (and it'll be my fourth time playing that particular course). 
    • Day 20 - 50 practice chip shots (stance, swing, target), then a half hour of putting, then a small bucket at the range (30-35 balls, an hour) working on half swings, punch shots, and my old priority piece (I have a new evolvr lesson in, but I don't want to work on it until Saturday because I'm playing tomorrow & Friday)... and of course some drives and full wedges.  I finished up with another 15 minutes of putting.
