Trying to finish up my set

8 posts in this topic

So I currently have...

Cobra S3 10.5*

Cobra S3 Max Hybrid 3 20*

Cobra S3 Max Hybrid 4 23*

Cobra S3 Max 5-PW (standard)

Cleveland 588 RTX 54*

Cleveland 588 RTX 58*

I am thinking to finish it out to go with a Cobra Amp Cell 3W-4W, and a Cobra Amp Cell 2H-3H.

The reason I am thinking "3 Wood" and "Rescue/Hybrid" is during my wedge fitting I was able to hit the 54* 100 yards, and the 58* was 80ish. I was able to swing less or open the club for less distance as well as "man up" and get 5 to 10 more yards if needed.

I guess I dont have to have 14 clubs, but if money allows it why not right...

This what I probably would do. I would get the hybrid first and then see how that works before you get the 3 wood. But like you said, if money allows it then go for both.

Ok, that is what I was wondering. If I could only get one should I go for the 3w or the Hybrid.

Thank you for the reply!

I would say the hybrid. It looks like you carry a good amount of hybrids already so you're used to the club at address and familiar using it. But I normally recommend trying both out and seeing what fits the distance gap better between your 3 hybrid and driver.

You probably need a gap wedge, something in the 48-50 range. And a putter, I'd fill the last slot with maybe an adjustable fairway wood that can go to 15-16 degrees. And keep the FW shaft at 43 inches max.

Oh yeah, I forgot the most important cl ub... The Putter. That is a CARBITE POLAR BALANCED DM MALLET

Be careful on the 2H, which has a loft of around 17*. At a demo day, both the Callaway and Adams reps cautioned middle HDCP players against using 2H in the rough, as you need quite a bit of clubhead speed to get the ball out.  Also, most 2Hs have Pro or Tour heads, meaning not much offset (it would line up differently than standard H heads).

Definitely test-hit the 4W. The average golfer finds it easier to hit than a 3W. Check them out and see which is best.

I am selling a 2hybrid and I bought a 4w and 3h today @ the Milwaukee golf expo for the reasons cited in this post. Very true, all of it.

Once it's gone i'll miss the 2h for two reasons, off the tee and low hooks to get out of trees. Great for those, but out of the rough or even just off the fairway I thought the 2h underperformed bigtime. I don't swing slow either.

    • I think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
