If you could carry a 15th club what would it be??

30 posts in this topic

I seen this on youtube, where they asked a few pro's if they could carry a 15th club in the bag what would it be?

So I'm asking everyone on TST..

If you only carry 14 in the bag.... but could carry 15,  what would it be??  and why??

Well right now in my bag this is what I have

Driver

3 - PW, 52, 56-8, 56-11, 60 wedges

and Putter...

I'd probably put my 3wood back in my bag.....

I carry 5 wedges (LW, SW, GW1, GW2, PW)  in place all the irons.  I will put back 6i (I carry 9, 8, 7, 5, 3 now).   I don't really need 15th club though.

Right now I make my best guess whether I leave the 5 wood at home or my 60 degree at home depending on both the course and exactly how I think I'm playing.

On the course I play the most the 60 stays home (no tight lies). On the course where I used to be a member the 60 stayed home (I used the 5 wood to carry tree lines after errant tee shots where my 3 wood wasn't quite high enough).

On courses with very tightly mowed fairways, very fast and/or firm greens with lots of greenside bunkers the 5 wood stays home (unless I'm in a spell where I'm hitting my long irons like crap).

If I could use 15 clubs I wouldn't have to guess...But then I would probably buy a 13 degree fairway wood and STILL have to play the guessing game between the 3 fairway woods. Ha ha!

BTW. I don't use the 60 out of bunkers but do need it for flops over bunkers off of tight lies to fast greens sloping away.

As long a putter as I could find. For measurements. :-D

Left handed iron of some sort.  Maybe an 8-iron.....

Gotta say though, I can get myself into more than enough trouble with 14 clubs.  I don't need another!

Currently I carry 3-pw, 56 and 52 degree, driver, 3-wood and a 2 iron hybrid.  I would probly throw in the 60 degree.

I really like my 5-iron AND my 5-hybrid. I almost always carry the 5-iron but if I could carry both I would. The 5-hybrid is great out of the rough.

I carry a Driver, 3W, 3-pw, GW, SW, and LW plus the putter.  I'd add a 5W which I gave up for the 3I.  I added the 3I (a hybrid) because I had trouble hitting the 5W out of the rough.  But I miss it off the fairways.

I guess I would add a 3-hybrid.  Never really hit one before but they seem to be all the rage.

Unless you're carrying 5 wedges, from your signature, it looks like you have room for a hybrid right now.....

You're right.  Honestly until I joined this forum I never knew that much about all the golf rules and even how many clubs I could carry.  The only reason I haven't looked into hybrids is because i've spent my money on other stuff like a new driver and new irons.

I would add a wedge, although right now I only have 13 clubs in my bag so apparently I don't really need it.

D, 3W, 5W, 4i-PW, SW, a 52, and putter.

I really would like to just completely re-do my entire wedge setup.

Maybe a 60, after I fill the gap between 12.5 and 21.

This.  I can't think of any other club that would get much use.

I'm surprised more people haven't mirrored my answer.

I don't need any more clubs. Heck, I could do just fine with 12 (I'd take out the 3I and the 60).

    • Nice pics! I can tell you're good at what you do.  From the pics, they remind me of Ping Ansers

    • Putting practice is very different from one player (and especially skill level to the next).   here are my impressions.   it is true that 30-50% of all shots are from the green.  but, you can't really look at it that way, because even on a good putting day, half of those are inevitable.  If you two putt every single green in regulation, I doubt you're gonna be too down on yourself.  so really, the strokes you are adding or subtracting from your card are the number of 3-putts and 1-putts.   For your average golfer, there are really just two things you need to accomplish to putt well.   Making every putt under 6 feet.  and putting every putt outside that 6-foot circle to within the circle.   1) making every putt within 6 feet this is really just about repetition.  and it really doesn't matter where you are getting your reps.  I have an 8 ft putting mat in my living room.  If I spend an hour just hitting balls on this over, and over, and, over, I notice is great deal of improvement in making my 5 footers.  I know it sounds simple, but just learning how to repeatedly hit the ball straight and having the confidence standing over the ball to hit it straight makes a huge difference.   note: I assume as you get better and better at golf (and putting), this method of practice will have less and less of a positive impact.  This really only helps you become confident in your putting stroke, once you've got that down, you've got bigger fish to fry.   2) hitting everything outside that 6 foot circle to within 6 feet.   This one is a bit trickier.  I think the best practice for this one is to get to a practice green and putt from many different distances.  and changing it up very frequently (as opposed to putting many balls from one distance and then moving).  This one is all about feel.  and feel only comes with practice.     If you can get really good at these two simple skills, you can certainly become a passable putter.   Now the next step is raising your conversion rate on 10-15 foot putts.   I think this step takes a lot more work and a much better understanding of how to read a green as well as being a lot more precise with your pace.   If I ever figure this stuff out, I'll do my best to share.               
    • 8/31/16: Slower backswings with a slightly faster through swing. Swinging at perhaps 60-65% of my "normal speed" I honestly don't lose much distance with it. So I think I might use this for a while. "Ledge" gave me this tip on Sunday. (After my match). He told me, I would be more consistent with it, so I'm giving it a shot. As August has 31 days, I've completed the "5 Minutes Daily" challenge for August. @iacas, how do I make text red in mobile?
