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

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?

Nope.  I dropped my 3 and 4 irons for hybrids something like 15 years ago.  I haven’t changed anything since then.

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 3W, 5W, and 7W are old Cobra S3s over ten years old, I'll never part with them. I tried a Callaway Classic 3W, it is still in the garage.

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

I think my Odyssey putter might be pushing that age

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'm 35, 6'0 - which I know puts me either on standard or + .25, but I'm going with standard for now just because they are much more readily available on the used market. I'm also fairly certain that graphite is the way to go for beginners, and I don't mind paying the extra coupe bucks for them. But is it true that I want to use steel for wedges/chipping? Something about more control on shorter shots? Thanks for the site suggestions, I was looking on some of those recently..found Callowaypreowned to be the better priced of them all, with a wide selection. Found a bunch of individual clubs that were 15-25 bucks that were MSRP'ing for 150-200 new, so I can't beat that. Regarding my budget, I *could* spend several hundred, but I just prefer to go the cheap route until I'm confident I know what I'm buying.  Hadn't considered getting lessons. Figuring stuff out on my own is a big part of the fun for me, even if I know it will be a harder road. Self-taught piano player, and high-average bowler as well.    Thanks for your feedback!
    • Have now moved back to playing my home course temporarily, thanks to the quarantine.  Played a couple of rounds last week and so far have birdied the 14th hole.  A 500 yard par 5 dogleg right.  Off the tee with a driver and faded onto the 12th fairway.  From there a 4 hybrid and I was within 50 yards of the green.  Not a great shot from there but was on the fringe of the green, probably 10 feet from the pin.  A great putt and my first birdie for this challenge.
    • Thanks for your input. Yeah, I realize I'm leaving a lot of holes with only 3 iron/wedges, but I figure I can always pick up used individual irons as I improve. I know if I bought a full set at this stage, even a cheap one, I'd regret it...still learning the basics. For instance, I just learned 2-3 days ago about "cavity irons," ...prior to that I was using the "blades," which were very difficult to get straight. Swapping it out for a cavity made a 100% difference.  Regarding the Lob Wedge, is that really something people struggle with? I am around 75% with making good shots on irons, but with the LW I strike it solid almost every time...I haven't gotten it to a course yet, but it's my favorite on the range right now. I actually picked it up on a whim last week not really sure what it was (as it only had a "56" on it and not a letter or iron number) and got lucky. Actually not even totally sure it's officially a LW, or just a high-loft PW. But it works lol.
    • Nothing much to add. A ball not found cannot be an embedded ball for the purpose of Rule 16.3. You either dig in and identify it or it is lost ball, stroke and distance, Rule 18.1 or 18.2 (the latter if the search clock has run down).  
    • I hate gripping it on the ground.
