How Many Sets of Clubs Do You Own?

Just curious how many clubs/sets people own. I have 2 full sets of Sam Snead Blue Ridges (1W 3W 4W 2-9i and putter), about 3 more putters, 6 wedges, and a couple of random woods.

At one time I had several sets. Maybe 6, or 7 sets. I built a pga guy's home, and sometimes he would just say "here take these". 

Right now I have two bags of gamers that I switch back and forth playing with. One being a regular bag of metal woods, and irons. The other is an all Ironwood bag, with a 4W.  Love playing those Ironwoods.

I also have a set of Hogans in a glass case. Won those in a raffle. Just too pretty to get dirty.

I just inherited a couple of sets from a deceased friend. These will eventually be donated to the local highschool if they want them. If not, probably my wife's charity stuff. 

I also have several loose drivers, and putters.

One.

I gave my last set to my neighbor who is interested in learning the game, and have donated sets and individual clubs to The First Tee in the past.

I’ve never found a reason to keep more than one set of clubs, and would rather give an old set to someone deserving than try to scrounge a few bucks for it...

I have to admit.  I do have two or three putters in the garage. Because let’s face it, every now and then a putter needs a timeout.  ;-)

I use a double sided putter. Could never get used to the extra mass on new stuff lol

I have three iron sets now but plan to sell one. I have older driver and woods that I keep around in case of loss or theft. I only have two putters. I do have a few extra beat up wedges.

I have also donated to the First Tee. But lately, they are not receiving club donations up here.

Only ever had one set. Got a new set of irons being made right now and will trade in my current ones for some credit in the store when I pick the new ones up!

Technically 4...

There's the set I play, Ping G700 irons with a Taylormade M4 driver and 3 wood.

There's a set of older Ping G20 irons I kept because I'm simply very fond of them. I also have some Titleist woods with a set of their old DCI Black irons. Lastly, I have a set of early 60s Walter Hagen Haig Ultra woods and irons I've made into a display in the livingroom.

In the case of the latter, I took the persimmon driver to the course one day. Obviously I couldn't hit it as far as my modern driver, but what was fun was seeing the look on a young friend's face when he hit a persimmon driver for the first time in his life.

I just have one set. At one time I had two sets, but that's because my uncle had given me his very old (from the early 70's) set when I was learning to play. Then I bought my own set, but kept the old set for a long while. I think we eventually sold them off in a garage sale. Wish I'd kept those persimmon woods though. They were pretty.

I only have 1 set, I sold my Nike CCi forged set 3 days ago after I received the Titleist 718 AP3's 7 days ago. I love how far the AP's hit but I should have gotten the AP2's which are forged.

Mizuno JPX800 HD irons and FLI-HI's that I may re-shaft. But I currently play the the TA6's and other clubs below except I only play one of the wedges. Also have 2 other driver (3 total), 2 other hybrids (3 and 2), a set of Adams 5 and 7 FW, and my deceased father-in-law's pristine Acushnet Bullseye putter. GOOD GRIEF! I'm a pack rat! Best, -Marv

I honestly have no idea. Probably 4-5 sets, or partial sets, of irons, 3-4 Drivers, 2-3 putters, 3 old bags, various fairway woods and hybrids. Makes me think I should organize it all and donate it to First Tee or a high school or something.

Far too many, most of which I haven't touched in years. When my boys were growing up and learning to play I got into club repair and then club building. I would buy closeout clone iron head sets and match them with shafts pulled from new sets being re-shafted by the pro at my course. I gave some away to my son's friends and kept others. A couple of old stand bags in my workshop are full of old woods and drivers from heaven-knows-where. Another bag has putters.

 

One of these days I'm going to cull the useful stuff and donate it.
