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.

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.

    • View this round on GAME GOLF Really my second full individual round(a stroke play event), or 4th if you count scrambles, on the year.  I am actually hitting my driver and irons decently as far as path and face is concerned and for distance as well.  My driver play is going especially well considering the lack of play.  I am definitely struggling a bit with low point but not as much as I thought I would. Had some great shots out of bunkers as well. I can't seem to figure out my wedge distances as is fairly obvious from this round.  My new Glide 2.0 wedges are confusing me a bit on some controlled distance shots.  I kind of miss my Edel wedges for that.  My touch around the greens is just not in form right now as would be expected.  I had some three putts out there but these greens are some of the toughest multi tiered greens I have played on.  We played with a scratch guy out there who shot a 77.  If i catch one thin or toe it a bit the hand also is in a fair amount of pain yet.  I look forward to the continued healing in the hand as far as that goes.   If i can avoid injuring myself this winter I hope to play a lot more next season.  Hopefully I can get out to Erin Hills and Sand Valley.  If anyone would be interested in playing theses courses next year with me, let me know. I am a bit on the fence over if I should work on the swing and try and get rid of the Furyk/Moore like loop or if I should just own it as it seems to be giving me the best face/path relationship I have maybe ever had.  At the end of the day if I can shoot in the low 80's from time to time next season I think it should be a lot of fun to play again.  
    • I’m typically around 4-6 if not even a bit higher. My issues come when I miss I miss big and start bringing big and crooked numbers into play
    • I don't know that that is accurate, and it definitely depends on the state.  In Colorado and California, for example, medical marijuana is exactly the same as the recreational strains available in dispensaries.  The difference is the level of taxation.  I did find one article that stated that 14 states limit THC potency, but after researching state-by-state wasn't able to pin that down.  I don't disagree that it's possible, but will argue the efficacy of doing so.  But to your point - Florida is considering legislation to limit the potency to 10% THC because levels above that "can induce psychosis in some users" (anyone seen Reefer Madness? 😄) A fools errand - the pot our parents smoked was around 7%, with the high-end "sinsemilla" coming in at around 9.5%.  It still gets you high.  Admittedly, the strains produced these days are much stronger, with 18-20% being considered high potency, and 30% being the upper limit for flower.  Extracts from marijuana plants, like hash oil, generally come in between 50 - 80%. To tie it all back together so I'm less off topic - regardless of the THC level, marijuana impairs a person mentally more so today than it did 20 years ago.  Golf is proven to have a significant mental component, aligned closely with the physical aspects of the game.  Thus weed absolutely has a negative impact on ones golf performance - though it might make a shitty round more fun.
    • This is true but remember this is writing. You can’t always be sure of the tone or intent based on written words. 
    • Conversation can be constructive, I agree.  Lets go back to the recent post that re-started this old thread.  @Mudcatwilly recommends rolling the trail forearm over the lead just before impact.  That is the specific advice that is being criticized heavily.  I know you can find photos of good players with the right arm "rolling over" the left after impact, but I'd be amazed if you can find pictures of this happening just before impact. In my view, any conscious manipulation of the club right around impact is a problem, its nearly impossible to time a motion like that consistently.  The better way is to build a swing in which the clubface squares up as a by-product of the rest of the motion, rather than as a result of conscious manipulation.
