What club would you grab if someone was robbing you?

Say you are at home and your house gets broken into and you are being robbed; and while looking for your defensive weapon, the first group of blunt objects you see is your golf bag. What specific club would you pull out and arm yourself with in this situation?

The one that says "Smith & Wesson" on it somewhere.  Screw the golf clubs, I've got a family to protect.

I keep a 6i next to my bed.  Something like a putter or wedge would probably be better.  You want something short a stiff.

My 870.  As in Remington 870.  I don't bring golf clubs to a gun fight.

LOL, ditto. My golf clubs are in my locker at the course, but my Kimber 45 is either on my hip or on my nightstand.

Its amazes me how our culture varies across the states.  I grew up in NY and have lived in DC and its suburbs for almost a decade.  In my entire life, I don't know that I've seen a gun that was not (1) held by law enforcement; (2) a relic (my dad has a 1862 Springfield rifle and father in law has a Luger); (3) in a store display; or (4) at a gun range.

In DC, its legal to have a gun in your home, but not outside your home (concealed or not).  Its up to you to figure out how to get it there without breaking the law.

Not trying to debate merits of gun control, I just find the variation in culture to be fascinating.  I would probably feel a bit unnerved if I saw a regular joe walking down the street with a gun, just because its not something I'd be used to.

You would be even more unnerved if instead of a regular joe it was a criminal that was intending to use the gun to rob you.

    • I've often had the problem of not hitting the driver as well as irons.  Over the last few rounds I came up with something that works pretty well for now:  Activate the wrists a little more with the driver.  With irons I've been swinging with a kind of "dead hands" feel in an attempt to cast/flip less and get a nice inline impact.  It just doesn't work the same for me with the driver. Now I'm trying to get a little more of a "swinging" feel with the driver.  Not afraid to let the club swing the wrists back into a hinged position, then not afraid the feel them swing unhinged in the downswing.  Sort of conciously unhinging them.  Not too much though.  Still have to swing the arms and body.  I'm just sort of letting the club head go more instead of my normal bunt/block kind of shot. I hope some of that made sense and was helpful.
    • Okay, I feel a little better now. Thanks for the info guys. Saved me a little worry
    • I just didnt get it. I have a. Odyssey metal x milled 1 that I love and works great for me and I have an odyssey white hot rossie, that I also love the feel, balance, weight, and the way it plays. I got them both for about 200, 200 for both clubs, their used, except that the metal x is in mint condition, but 200 for two good clubs I get, 350 for a putter....it better guarantee that u jar it from 90 ft before I pay that much. But thats my opinion. I just didnt know if they're was something amazing or mystical about these that I was unaware of for that price
    • Maybe thick grip on putter trend seeping into full swing clubs? Heck if I know. Do thick grips make it harder to install via air compressor?
    • did not know where exactly where to place this thread, but........ Okay, I have been struggling with iron play so have been working diligently on it at the expense of losing faith in Driver, fairway woods, and lower lofted hybrids. I have gotten much better at the irons, hitting all of them crisp and even being able to stop on a green. Today it was almost like throwing darts in that most of the iron approaches stopped dead in their tracks, however the greens were recently heavily "sanded" and therefor hardly any roll out at all. Just "thud craters". Not complaining mind you, as its always nice to lay one right up pin high within three feet or so (but sometimes shorter than expected).  That being said, now I just can not seem to hit driver e.t.c.  (nothing new here, and a lot of discussion in the past).  It would be nice to have a practice routine that would benefit me in both ways or as the subject line says, achieve balance.  Just a mild moment of "introspection" and muse.......
