Help me fill my bag!

7 posts in this topic

Hi guys

I currently have 13 clubs which I am pretty happy with.  I hit the ball a pretty good way so not sure if that will help factor into your decision on which club I should put in my bag last.

Right now I have...

Driver

3wood

4Hybrid

4I - 9I

Pitching Wedge

Gap Wedge(52)

Sand Wedge

Putter

Should I add another wedge (maybe an Approach wedge?) Or go with a 3I or 3H.. I have never needed one though so I'm thinking throwing another wedge in my bag might be good... Do you guys use your 60* if you do have them in your bag?

Thanks

If you intend to add a wedge, I would suggest going for a 58 / 60. I'm not sure what your SW is in terms of loft, but a 60 degree (I game a 58 and it's very similar) is very versatile and a great addition as it gives you a lot more options around the greens. You need to practice a lot with it as it is a club that requires good technique and feel. Many struggle with it, but if you can take advantage of the club, it's a great weapon.

Otherwise, how big is the gap between your 3 wood and 4H?

Look to see how big the gap is in between each of your clubs and see if you can fill any large spaces 25+ yards.  This is a good place to start.

You bring up a good point, I have heard some people struggle with a 60 while others are down right deadly with it.  My SW is a standard 56.  My 3wood isn't a great club for my consistency wise but around 240 ish.  My 4H is 210 to 220 (4I 200-210) .  The distance gap is pretty standard though within about 25 yards of each other so nothing I can't handle.  I'm pretty interested in the 60 wedge.

You should get rid of the 4 hybrid and have a 3 hybrid you have a 4 iron and a 4 hybrid with a huge gap between your 3 wood and your 4 hybrid or iron you should go driver 3 wood 3 hybrid 4-9 and then get your gap sand and 60 the 60 is great to have around the green and from 60 yards and in to get spin and nice soft flop shots. I love my 60 a lot of people don't think that club should be in the bag but I believe its useful.

I'll agree with the 4i/4h thing.  Drop either of the 2 and go with a 3h or 3i, then add a lob wedge.

This is exactly what I have....the 4i, 3h, 3w and a lob wedge.

    • Ready golf except in match play. Match play is different. 
    • Yep! I have both a FJ jacket and pants in rainwear that I bought years ago. I don't use them very often so they've lasted a long time. But, they're heavy and hot! They were made before GoreTex and other waterproof, breathable fabrics. My advice? Get the absolute best you can afford! They will last you a long time, they will keep you comfortable, they will be light, and they won't impede your swing very much.
    • Thanks for all the responses. I think this boils down to the context of the situation. I had two of the foursome busting chops about hitting out of order on previous holes. Then the first time it was mildly inconvenient for them to wait, the holed out just as i hit the green. Mind you.  This wasnt an "adventure" hole.. I hit the green on stroke 5 because of a flub shot that went about 10 ft. And an errant approach that left me about 10 yards short of the green. In any other case I agree that its perfectly fine to hit when ready, but not if you complain about hitting out of order. I guess to paint the picture, one whipped a club on the 3rd hole due to sculling a shout out of the bunker.. on another hole had one of them walking towards green right in front of my approach.. he nicely moved about 3 yards to the right as i asked him to move. As karma would have it, i hit the shot straight at him and nearly hit him.. these were friends of mine.. so a lesson learned to play golf with different friends..
    • Picked one up and checked it out in a store the other day. First thing I noticed about it was how heavy it was. Reminded me of when I went out for the HS golf team, and the coach had a Driver with a solid steel head on it. He advised us that we were NOT to hit drives with it! It was for warm up only. Being as heavy as it is, I think the main benefit to it might be that it slows your transition from backswing to downswing. There's a whole lot of guys who could use that!
    • OK, this kind of clears things up for me. I thought you might have been trying to take close ups of clubheads impacting golf balls. In that case you'd need something numbering in the several thousands of fps! If all you need is to look at swings I'd say anything the budget allows should suffice. Consider the 960fps system mentioned. If a golf swing takes about I second, at a playback rate of 30fps, that gives you a swing video of 32 seconds in length. Plenty long enough to see the golfer's bodily motions. Considering how small the clubhead will appear when videoing the entire golfer, I don't know that fps is the main consideration. It could be pixel count and the quality of the lenses. This reminds me of my "audiophile" days when cassette tapes were all the rage. I had a BIC deck that could record at 7 1/2 ips (inches per second), and an Audiovox car player that could play back at that speed. The sound quality was amazing! You were putting the same amount of info into twice as much space! There was so much more room!
