Comfort Club!

Recommended Posts

I was curious out there I know most people have one or two comfort clubs that they just feel the most secure about in a bad situation or a go to situation. I was curious what some of ya'lls comfort clubs were. For me its: 56* 8iron 7 wood More on the 56* wedge. It is something I hit everyday for hours a day at the house from 5ft to 100yards. Aimed at the barn, the dog, the cows, the trees, the shed, even some pieces of plywood set out. I feel when I have it in my hands that I will get it within a reasonable distance to the hole. My stepdad gave it to me when he got a new 60* and I haven't sat it down yet!

Razr X Tour 6 Hybrid.  I love that club.  30* lofted hybrid with very little offset.  Can hit it off tees on par 3s from 130 to 170 yards and get close usually.  Can move ball forward in stance and hit a huge high ball over trees, or move back in stance and hit a waist-high line drive.  I feel like I can hit whatever shot I want with the club.  Its my layup club on most par 5s, my tee club on most par 3s, and my get out of trouble club.  My buddy added a cobra 5 and 6 hybrids to replace his 5 and 6 irons and instantly took like 7 strokes off.  I love that mid-loft hybrid.  SO much easier than a "real" 6 iron.

Are the hybrid really that good? I have thought about getting one, the only one we have is a pawn shop 3 hybrid that is pretty nice just haven't really used it "much".

I've got the RazrX 3 and 4 hybrids.  Awesome clubs.  Just got the 4 hybrid.  Did a side by side comparison with it and my 4 iron.  About 10 yards longer on perfect contact than the real 4 iron.  On mishits easily 20 to 30 yards longer.  So much easier to hit.

52* Vokey wedge. I use it for everything around the greens. Given my inability to hit many GIR, I made a point of making friends with a short club so that I was in a decent position once I got close to the green. It's paid off.

If I can make the yardage work by choking up or letting it rip, my 4-hybrid is a comfort club. Often I feel more comfortable with a 4-hybrid than I do with a 6-iron.

It's a no brainer, the 2 clubs I've had in my bag for about 20 years, my putter and 64 degree wedge. I wish that I could be that comfortable with every club in my bag, I just might play better.

I would have to say 8 iron. For some reason I can just always hit that club perfectly and looking down at it when addressing the ball is definitely comforting. Also my 52 degree wedge. That one I can almost always hit to a certain distance.

50* Vokey. You can tell, too, it has the most visible wear on the clubface. I use it for about 99% of my greenside play and its my absolute money club from 85-105 yards. I also love my 8 iron as its my most used for approach shots and chip and runs.

Depends how far I want to hit the ball... Don't really have any club I trust more than others. If I don't want to risk stuff from the tee I'll hit 3 wood or 4 iron. I'm comfortable with all my irons. It is always a decision you have to make on a bad lie. If I got 170 yards left, but can't hit it with a 6i, I might club down to 8i and hit it lower.

If I'm struggling off the tee I will go to the 4 iron. Sometimes the 3 iron. Nothing like hitting a solid stinger long iron 230 to build your confidence

    •  I generlly play at two clubs Bradley Park - Nice 18 hole course, well kept mature parkland i can play for £19 on a weekend or 10 holes for a tenner. Great driving range and practice area. Willow Valley - 3 courses. 9 hole, 18 hole intermediate and the championship course (home of the Yorkshire PGA champs). 9 holer is a tenner on the weekends and the inter course is £20. You just cant grumble at the value for monet you get.
    • I prefer sand that is medium I guess. I have trouble with real soft, fine sand because I am not as consistent with how far I hit behind the ball. I think soft sand is less forgiving. I work to play a sand shot similar to a pitch shot, but with lower hands as my Evolvr instructors and Erik have taught me.  My league course has medium sand on the course, but very soft sand in the practice area. My home course has medium sand but no practice area. It's odd, but I never seem to get into the bunkers at my home course. I think I just jinxed myself! 
    • Welcome @afmilboy02! Happy thanksgiving. I tweaked some of your post to make it fit our guidelines for member swings. The one thing we need you to do now is embed the videos- not attach them. In the “How To” dropdown, you’ll see an option for embedding videos.   Under the “Info” dropdown there is an option for Instructional Content.  Great stuff there as well as tips for how to have a good swing thread, including video tips.  Good luck!!!
    •   I've been Playing Golf for: years but just getting back into golf
      My current handicap index or average score is: 90s
      My typical ball flight is: None
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is:  Haven't played in a season or so due to work, but getting back into it and have had nothing but issues.  Previously, I was a solid ball striker (few miss hits per round) that shot in the high 80's to low 90's a few lip outs, bad chips, and/or bad drives away from being in low 80's.  With that said, I dont know where that swing went, I literally am struggling to make solid contact with the ball with numerous issues in my swing... hip slide, over back swing, out/in path, pushes left, and fat/thin hits to name a few.  Here are a few vids (removed by moderator as they were attached not embedded)... tips, drills, and advice are welcome.   Thank you!
