loft gaps

5 posts in this topic

Right now my loft gaps and clubs are arrainged as a 10.5 driver 15 3wood 18 2hybrid and a 21 4iron and a 24 5iron. just wondering if anyone has skipped the common 18 degree club whether its a 5wood or hybrid and jumped from the 3wood to a 21 or 22 degree club. I am looking delete a long club from my bag to add a wdge but do not want to leave any giant gaps in lofts i am thinking of getting an 18 or 19 hybrid and a 23 hybrid and removing my 4 and 5 irons

thanks

I try to cover the loft gaps, but make decisions based on distance and shot gaps.

If you can hit your 3 iron good then replace the wood/hybrid with another wedge. you will have more options when your closer to the green. i just made this switch from my 5 wood to another wedge since i can hit my 3 iron well and it has helped lower scores.

I can't say my scores went lower, but I felt more prepared to attack a course when I went from 4 wedges to 3 wedges with wider loft gaps, added a 3-wood, and dropped my 2-iron in favour of a 19* hybrid. Different strokes for different folks.

You can definitely do that if you're willing to carry a 4ish-wood. Mine goes 11* driver, 16* fairway, 21* hybrid, 24* 4-iron. Most people will hit a hybrid further than the equivalent iron, so you probably want the loft gap to tighten a bit where you transition into those.
