Considering a new 3 wood and Hybird

2 posts in this topic

I currently have a Taylormade r7 ST 3 wood and a big bertha DDS Diablo 4 hybird I purchased used when I took up playing again about 8 months ago. Since then I have purchased a new set of irons Mizuno JPX 800 and a Calloway tour FT iZ driver I was fitted for both of those purchases.

After getting the new driver I started shooting scores in the high 70’s for the first time in my life,

I’m wondering if its time to change out my older 3 wood and hybird. I’m not a long ball hitter so I wind up hitting my 3 wood off the deck a lot and off the T on long par 3’s. I hit my 4 hybird more than any club in my bag, many times just to reach longer par 4’s. I hit both of them fairly well 70% of the time so I’m wondering if it’s worth trying out a new club. I hit my sons new Adams fast 10 3W and I hit it a little straighter than mine but not further I hit my 3W about 200 yards.

I guess my question is, are the new 2010/2011 clubs so much better than the two models I now have? I have not read much about the TM r7 ST it has a regular TM shaft not an aftermarket.
Just looking for some opinions on how much the technology has advanced since the clubs I already have. If it’s comparable to the new driver I have vs. the old Ping G5 I was using, it’s a no brainer. I’ve hit some demo clubs at golf shop off the matt but in my view it’s not a real comparison vs. the course.

Maybe its time for a new R11 3 wood and Mashie hybrid??? And maybe not.

Thanks for any advise.

I play the Cobra Baffler TWS 3h 20*.  It is a great club, very solid, long, and forgiving. I upgraded the shaft to a UST V2 72 gram. It goes about 205-210. I can't vouch for new hybrids but this one is a winner and you can probably get it $100 or less.  I have heard great things about the Titleist 910 hybrid and the Callaway Razor has great reviews....

    • Isn't that the truth. I cringe at the man on the street interviews where they ask basic questions like, "Who won the civil war?" and people don't even know who was in it. 
    • So... since the last time I posted, I got out last Saturday and played the front nine at the club we joined with my son.  I didn't play very well, but I didn't play too poorly.  I posted a 47 that included 2 uncharacteristic penalties on that side of the course.  I found myself focusing too much on my son and not enough on my own game, so... it wasn't a horrible nine holes.

      We then went away for a quick vacation and I didn't touch my clubs for 6 days.  On Friday, my kids were off from school, so I took my son out again and my daughters tagged along to look for lost balls and do cartwheels in the grass.  Again, nothing great... but nothing horrible.  My 46 was entirely the result of feeling 'off' when standing over the ball.  I managed to scramble pretty well towards the end, but I hit only 1 of 9 greens and only 2 of 7 fairways.  My putting kept the score somewhat respectable.  

      Today, I met with a friend of mine at a club I've only played once.  It was the club I was planning on joining, but my wife talked me out of it because it's about 45 minutes from home.  In the end, she was right and I'm extremely happy with the club we joined.  Anyway... it was cool all day long, which I loved... but the winds were 15+ MPH all day long... which I didn't love.  On the range prior to teeing off, I was hitting the ball very well.  I was hammering my driver and my irons felt good.  When I got on the course, my driver swing went away.  I played the first 7 holes really well, and then had a horrible triple bogey on the 8th hole followed by a bogey on the 9th.  I turned a 41 into a 45 in a hurry.  The back was ugly all around.  I managed to break 50, but just barely with a 49.  My 45 - 49 = 94 was not all that bad considering the wind and the fact that I've NEVER played a course set up more ridiculously with tricked-up pin positions.  I figure with some more accessible hole locations and even moderately less wind, my score could have been 5-6 strokes lower.  Still... a 94 is a 94, so... I'll deal with it.  

      I'm hoping to play 2-3 more times this week, but it'll depend on work.  

      Hoping to put some good scores up!

    • Retired 12/31/15. Trying to get in as much golf as possible.  Purchased Lowest Score Wins.  Most helpful publication about golf I've ever read. Been to Golf Evolution in Erie and met Eric.  Profited from that session.  Hope to do more.
    • Thanks @nevets88 I narrowly escaped watching 2 two hours of stuff getting crushed...
