Just curious how many people have different clubs that they swap in and out of their bag depending on how they are playing or the course they are playing. I currently swap between a 4I and 4H, hitting the 4H if I'm not hitting the ball as well. I also just purchased a 5W to start working on hitting that vs. my 2H.

Anyone else out there have various clubs you swap in and out regularly?

I rotate between drivers (see sig). If the course is tight and short - FT-iQ.
If the course is long - FT-i with white board X.
If it's wide open - less trouble - the Matrix gets the call.

I'm playing in a 36 hole stroke play tourney next week - shorter, tighter County Club course - mot likely will go FT-iQ.

On Saturday of next week it's the 2-man scramble and a long drive competition. FT-i white board X for sure.

At times I go old school and leave the hybrid out and put in 3 iron.

nope I have the set up that I feel comfortable with, I dont want or need any other clubs than the ones that are in my bag.

My normal starting lineup is only 13 clubs, so I guess I can swap in something for each round until I decide what to do.

The 14th slot is varying at the moment: old driver (until I'm comfortable with the new one) or 4-iron. I won a closest-to-pin at my club's last tournament with that 4-iron. I also picked up an old demo club, an Adams A7 6-iron with a graphite shaft that I'm contemplating for that spot, as perhaps a high 4/5 (once I figure out my distance with it). Would also be great as a mid-iron for days when I don't hit it great.

I dont really follow the rule of how many clubs in a bag, but I do switch them out to to make it lighter since I always walk.

Not really, I did however swap my driver with a 13* 3w when I had problems controlling it, but now since I've made the right shaft change, the driver stays in the bag for good ........

I swap all the time, just depends on the course I'm playing or the weather.

If the course has really tight driving holes, then out goes the Callaway 3 Wood and in goes the Titleist PT-15

If I know I will hit a 2 iron of the tee, then out comes the hybrid and in goes my Callaway X-14 2 iron.

I don't like to change my wedges, but if i'm playing in really fluffy sand, I'll swap in an old 588 with more bounce and take out the 60.

    • I spent quite some time auditioning hybrids until I settled on a 5 and 3 wood.  Once I'd done that it became a matter of choosing a hybrid that suited, or fit, the space between my irons and fairways.  It isn't, to my thinking, what hybrid is best...it's which hybrid is most like the clubs on either side.  I want the weight, and flex, to be similar to my 4 iron and 5 wood.  In other words:  I'd rather fit one club to the set than craft a set around one club.
    • Day 133.  Had a little bit of time, wish I had more.  Did the 6' putting drill I've been doing;  this time, I hit 7/12 on the first go-around!  And then 3 of 5 the second one.  It was fantastic.   I then set up 8 roughly equidistant stations from 9' out.  First go-around, sank none.  Second go-around, sank 4.  Hey, 4/8 from that distance is great, and for that matter, 4/16 isn't bad from that distance for me.  Took me a bit more time to sink the rest.   You might wonder why I'm doing so much putting lately.  It was an emergency and I only have n=1 rounds where it has looked good since declaring the emergency.  Also, I had to pack up my home golf room so I can't practice full swing in limited time as I used to (yes, there are drills I could do that don't involve hitting a ball).  Not worry, plenty of full swing work before too long.  
    • During the club fiasco of 2019, after FedEx lost my golf clubs and I was waiting for Cobra to build me a new set of F9 One Lengths (5i - SW), I made a mistake. I bought into hype. I went down and tried out a new set of hybrids. Callaway Epic Flash. The reviews were that they were long and forgiving. Well, true and sort of true. I had a little problem with "over fading them", but with a draw setting to make them a little more upright, that seemed to fix that and I was hitting them long and straight in the shop. Unfortunately this did not last. I do not like them. I have zero confidence with the 5H. The "over-fade" with the 4H and 3H is back. I did not have this issue with my Bio Cell hybrids. The Bio Cells were not as long, but I could hit them straight in a neutral face setting. They were also heavier in the club head. D6 vs D0. I think the weight was further back in them too for more forgiveness. What makes this a mistake is that I used them as part of the funding for the Epic Flash Hybrids. I have a 60 day playability guarantee on the Callaways. Basically if I don't like them I can return them. I'm going to return them, but I'll need a set of hybrids. I'll bring my 6i with me. So do you guys have any suggestions for any that are easy to get in the air and tend to keep a relatively narrow dispersal pattern?
    • Day 27 Worked with my weighted club, but this time, I placed a football between my arms and held it in place as I focused on my takeaway.  Really trying to keep my width, and prevent my arms from folding as I have had a tendency to allow in the past.
    • I got up for the 3am start on Friday. Had the dvr record todays start. Probably should have done this in reverse order. Still very enjoyable. Love the format and the US vs Europe. I still have some hope for Decembers Pres. Cup. Maybe that team can be somewhat competitive.   Solheim and Ryder Cup still a must watch for me.
