After playing golf seriously for about the last 3 years I find myself with about 20 clubs that could be included in my bag on any given day....

I have

Two regular drivers

3W

4W

5W

2H

3H

4H

4i-GW (set)

51 degree wedge

56 degree wedge

60 degree wedge

2 Putters

Obviously I can't carry that many so I tend to look at the course and how I'm swinging and choose either 13 or 14 clubs

Do you do the same or stick with the same 13-14 clubs?

As a side note I've been fitted for both drivers and all my irons and wedges.... I took my hybrids and woods in at the same time but they fitted me enough not to justify the expense of new shafts..

Cheers,

Dek

I got 15 clubs, can exchange the hybrid for a 3 iron if I want to.

I generally only change a wedge or two, depending on how wet or dry the ground is. I have a 56*14 wedge and a 56*10 wedge that I rotate depending on conditions.

I rotate L-wedges for conditions.

I used to carry 2 hybrids sometime, but I stopped doing that because I hit the one I could hit the furthest the most often, so I just went to one hybrid that split the difference between my 2 old hybrids, loft-wise, and had a more similar set-up/feel to my other woods.

I pretty much stick with the same 14.  Sometimes I will swap out the 60 degree wedge for a 17* hybrid or swap in and out various putters depending upon how Im feeling.  Like a lot of other players, when I start to struggle with my game I often end up blaming the clubs instead of doing what I should do and look at what in my swing is wrong.

I have two bags, one is persimmon and blades, the other titanium and cavity backs.  Both are almost always driver, 3w, irons 1-pw.  Usually carry the same utility wedge and putter in either bag, but occasinally will swap out putters, and less often utility wedge.  Lumber and blades are for most solos, Titanium and cavities for scrambles and such.

i change my bag very little.  Depending on the course and how I'm hitting it, I will swap between my full wedge set up (52,56,60) and a partial wedge set up (52 and 58).    But I rarely do this.

And every now and then, I will take out my 5 wood and 4 Hy, and put in by 3 Hy.  But that's pretty rare too.

I've got more than 2 bags full of spare clubs in the garage, but I don't use them.  I hang on to them in case I need to outfit an out of town visitor with a bag, occasionally loan spare wedges to friends to try out, etc., but I don't change out my own bag.  I'm comfortable with what I have and I have no plans to change anything for the entire season unless I damage something.

When I swap out clubs I dont keep them.  It helps keep the cost of the clubs down when I buy new ones.  Now that I have a set that I like, I dont make changes as often.  I picked up my R11 when it came out.  I just sold my R9 3W for $165 and will be picking up the R11 3W when it comes out to replace it.  It will only cost me $65 now that I sold my R9 3W.  When my income tax check comes Ill replace my 19 and 22 '09 Rescue hybrids with a 19 and 22 '11 hybrids.  After that I wont be making any foreseen changes in the future unless something unexpected comes up.

If I was worried about how much golf costs, I wouldn't be playing.  Since I shop before I buy and then I use what I buy for several years, trade in value would be minimal anyway.  I don't need to grab the latest and greatest every time someone changes the color of the clubhead.

I tend to keep my equipment for a while (played 845s for almost 16 years) and like Fourputt find that there is little to no trade in value.  Instead, I keep them for a spare set in case someone I know needs some clubs to play while visiting.  I have some extra putters and a couple of 588 wedges along with my last driver and hybrid that round out the spare bag with the 845s.

    • PGA2K21 is good. I play it on the PS4. 
    • Day 83 - Spent more time filming swings. It seems I’m correct at A2 or A3, getting both to be what I’m looking for isn’t working. Have more work to do before sending in more swings. 
    • Rule 2 - The Course Notes as follows. These are notes, not a recap or a summary or anything like that. 2.1 - Course Boundaries and Out of Bounds The Committee has to decide where boundaries are. 2.2 - Defined Areas of the Course There are five: general area the teeing area the green penalty area bunker If the ball is in two areas, it's treated as lying in the general area last, or in the order: penalty area, bunker, putting green. 2.3 - Objects or Conditions that can Interfere with Play Just links to other rules for loose impediments, movable obstructions, abnormal course conditions, GUR, temporary water, or immovable obstructions. No relief for boundary objects. 2.4 - No Play Zones Must take relief when ball, stance, area of swing interfered with here can be an ACC or a penalty area
    • Pm back at ya Piz.  This should be fun.  Thank you Adam as well.  We’ll have to keep comparing notes next spring when the weather gets better.  
    • Last lesson of the year today 12/2: Full swing stuff - backswing and tempo were much improved which is what I’ve been working on so happy with that. We discussed the block fade miss caused by open club face. My transition is aggressive which pulls the club face open when the handle of the club starts moving too quickly (or something like that). Quick fix was to have a feel for the club head moving and widening the arc before the handle starts going. Did some work on this at about 75% full speed and then added speed back as I got the hang of it. Putting work - did a putter fitting and when selecting the alignment aid design, I learned that they don’t matter at all for how I aim. Apparently no matter where the target was, I tended to line my aim up around the spatial configuration of the putting area (e.g., aiming parallel to the edge of the putting surface, or a nearby wall). Once I was aware of this behavior and able to consciously overcome it, my initial aim was really good. When I scheduled the fitting with my teacher I had my mind made up on something from the Edel product line, but I tried one of those ridiculous looking LAB putters and it was undeniably good for me, so that’s what I ended up going with.
