Has Your Set Composition Changed in Ten Years? Any Ten-Year-Old Clubs in Your Bag?

Recommended Posts

I don't mean the brand and model of clubs so much as the types of club as they may have changed in your bag since a decade ago.

Number of woods / metals.

Number of hybrids if any.

Number of numbered irons.

Number of wedges.

Number of other utility clubs (driving irons, chippers or whatever.)

Mine set composition is the same.

Is yours?

Over the past dozen years or so, I've alternated between 0, 1, or 2 hybrids;  I've also at various points gone from wedges for my PW/AW versus iron from the set.  So yeah, it's changed. :-)  I've also changed number of fairway woods;  sometimes a 4-wood (as it is now), sometimes 3 and 5, sometimes 5 but not 3.

I have five clubs in my bag that were in my bag a decade ago.

My putter is literally older than current  presidential candidate Mayor Pete.

I bought it in 1978 for the then princely sum of $75.

Still gaming it forty-two years later.

Are you going with any old stuff?

For the coming season I removed the 2 & 3 irons and 4 rescue; added a 4 hybrid, 56° and 60° wedges. I may have left myself with a gap somewhere around 210-220 yds but I'm getting older, not hitting driver as far as I used to so maybe the 3 wood will work in that range We'll see.

Not mine in 10 years. Maybe not even for the the past 15-20 years. 

The only change I have ever made in my bag make up, was dropping my 2, 3, and 4 irons for a 7 wood, and an extra couple of wedges. That was so long ago, I really can't remrmber when I did it.

Every club in my bag is well over 10 years old. 

Even my current putter I have had for over 10 years. However, it just became my permanet gamer during the past couple of years. It replaced a the damaged putter I used for over 20 years.

My Cleveland irons came with a gap wedge that was 50*, (I probably shouldn't have bought it), I have a Cleveland 52* that I like a lot, so I pulled the new GW 50* and added my old 7W for this year, I"ll see how that works, i.e., the 7W.

A little bit.  I have dropped the 3 and 4 irons and replaced them with a 4 hybrid.  Also, I have dropped the 3 and 5 woods from my bag, but that is more because they aren't great clubs to play with.  I am ideally looking to buy a new 3 and 5 wood, or possibly a 4 wood to replace them

My driver turned 14 this year.  My irons are 10 or 11.  The wedge ( a 54 ) is a couple years younger and the putter about the same.  The fairways, and hybrid, date to around 2012 or so.  I'm pretty much done buying golf clubs.

    • I recognize that...when this year started I needed to lower my cap 2.9 to reach my goal, as recently as friday, I only needed to lower it 5.4 to reach my goal for this year...   the original improvement for me was lessons. These days, I have all the technical skills, it is more about becoming consistent so I have been matching the practice percentages with the 5 "S"s...both threads you can find on this site.    By practicing the right stuff and successfully I am slowly seeing improvement (where slowly means this past Saturday i shot my best round by 8 strokes this year). The scoreboard doesn't always reflect it yet but I am seeing shots more consistently be closer to what I was trying.    Focused, successful practice I guess is the summary. 
    • Amazing that we are able to get such efficient level of protection with these vaccines. 
    • Thank you No Laying Up, for posting a see it in one shot summary of how to watch the US Open this week. 11 AM to 9PM on Saturday. That's a long stretch!  
    • I've taken lessons multiple times, play 2-3x week, plus range sessions, think/read/watch a LOT about golf (read lowest score wins...twice!), but would say my improvement has been slow and I've been getting steadily worse for the past 3 months. Lowest index was 10.1, currently a 14 playing like a 20). There is such a volume of information and opinion on golf instruction, it's overwhelming.  I'm thrashing around a little right now, and need to rethink my approach to improvement. What worked for you to get better?
