I have a Nike Dymo 3 wood 15deg.and Nike Dymo 5 wood 19deg.  I also have a 3h Nike Sumo2 to replace my 3i.  and I have a Nike Sumo2 5h to replace 5 iron. Is that set-up cool?  I'm just wondering. Thanks.

What are your yardages for each club?  Do you have a 4i, 4h, or a gap between your 3h and 5h?  If you can cover the yardages throughout your bag then it should work fine.

I wouldn't go that route, but if it gets you around the course in one piece then it's cool for you.

I added a Sumo2 H#3 (23*) to my bag this year. I find it to be a club I can choke down on to make it more distance flexible. I would have suggested you keep the 5iron in your bag. My suggestion would ahve been to replace the 6iron with a 30* Sumo2. It has a high flight and great stopping power on the green. The 5iron is more useful for digging out of bad lies.  Do you have any problems switching betweem the regular Sumo's and the Sumo2 clubs?

Well, it's only four clubs... I guess you could putt with those, but getting out of a greenside bunker may be a challenge.

Okay, I knew what you meant.  Here's my - and I believe, most people's - feelings on this:  have gaps you're comfortable with.  At the shorter end of the bag, it's more important to have gaps covered than at the longer end.  If there isn't a significant gap between your 3H and 5H (Jim Furyk used to - might still - not carry a 4-iron, but had 3 and 5 with lofts to create less of a gap).

I'm guessing the rest of your bag is driver, putter, 6-P, GW, SW, and something fun for the 14th (maybe LW)?

in my opinion you 5 wood and 3 hybrid are one degree difference in loft, your 5h and 6i has 3.5 degree difference. in my opinion you should ditch your 5 wood and keep your 5 iron. heres why; in my opinion because I do not know how you hit you woods and hybrids: but I would rather see a smaller distance gap between your iron and hybids. you will probably hit your hybrids longer than your iron. even though your 5h is only a degree off of your 5iron you will probably hit it a club longer, or basically you'll hit it like a 4iron. In terms of the woods and hybids I think the 3h would be more versital than the 5wood. I've used my 4h(23 degree) anywhere from the tee to pitch and chip shots. Not to mention the distance would probably be similar. Once again its my opinion the only way to really know is to go out and play and dependant on the course your set up might and will cahnge. good luck

I would probably ditch the 5 wood unless you hit it really well. What kind of wedges are you playing?  I'm also a big fan of the Sumo2 hybrids...they feel great.

    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.  
    • Day 68, August 1, 2021:  My backswing is still too long. I’m trying to get it shorter I look at it on film and it’s way too long, did some pitching length swing length feeling swings, so it’s probably half to three quarter length backswing.
