I love everything P-7 iron. 

Anything less than P or longer than a 7-iron is still (unfortunately) a 50/50 proposition.

Some great stories lol. Just raving the driving range and my 7 iron  was great. My Ben hogan 3 hybrid was good but not really much farther. Practice practice. Let's hope I can keep a few more balls on the fairway and out of the forests ?

Definitely this.

But I suppose the club I generally feel most warmly towards is my Taylormade Burner Bubble 5W. For whatever reason, my odds of hitting a ball solidly seem better with that club than any other. As my longest club off the floor, it often is required to make up for crappy drives.

I honestly can't remember more than maybe 1 or 2 times where you did not hit your 5w well. It's almost always been an automatic shot for you, it's kind of impressive.

I have 2. One I have had for a very long time, the other one I just got only a few weeks ago.

First is my putter. It is the original putter that I got from an Acuity Voltage boxed set which was my first set of clubs back in like 2007 or 2008, I was in high school at the time. I have since upgraded all of my other clubs, but for some reason I cant just quite pull the trigger and take that club out of the bag. I have been putting very well this year averaging less than one 3 putt per round, so I dont feel the need to change it out at this point. Still has the original grip on it as well.

My 2nd favorite club is one that is new to me, a 60 degree wedge, Callaway Mack Daddy PM grind. I haven't had anything higher than a 56 before so I am in love with this. It has changed my entire short game. I can now take a full swing from 90-100 yds where before that would have been a choked down or lower powered 56 which never worked out well. I can get out of bunkers great now, and I rarely thin one with this club. Easily my go to club inside 100 yds unless I am in the rough just off the green and want to do a chip and run or something. Picked it up used from 2ndswing website for about $40 and easily has paid for itself in shots that I have saved and the confidence it gives me for pitch/chip shots.

You must be catching me at my best with that.

When it goes wrong is when I let my wrists snap through. The result is the mother of all hooks. If I keep my wrists where they're supposed to be, it works pretty well.

It's the putter for me. I think I could probably score close to my hdcp with only my six iron and my putter. In fact I may give that a try once my course re-opens after the renovations.

Without question its my 23 degree Ping G25 Hybrid.  I hit it more consistently then any other club in my bag.  It's my 190 - 200 yard club and I feel comfortable using it in all sorts of situations and/or lies.

my putter has been my best friend as of late, saving me quite a few strokes.

you know?  every single time I make a putt I've saved at least one stroke......  :-P

 

for me, I've been really fond of my Lob Wedge this season (58 degree Mack Daddy 2).  It's for anything from greenside to nearly 90 yards.  It's a lot of fun to think "ok, now THIS is what 67 yards 'feels' like" and then actually hit it that far....

My favorite club is a Taylormade R1 driver with a 55 gram R shaft.   I bought it used for $80.  It has a little dent in the head which I only noticed recently.  But I love that club.   It has an adjustable head, which I adjusted to 12 degrees of loft.   For some reason, with that club, I can take the most natural-feeling, free-flowing, loose, hard swing at the ball.  I take a nice slow backswing, then I make a forward shift with my hips, making sure I keep my head behind the ball, and on the downswing I try to feel like I'm getting my right elbow under my left elbow (just a feel, maybe not real), kind of lay the club back like a flat baseball swing, and I can really drive the ball out there, very straight.  

The only bad thing about it is that it makes a very loud noise when I hit it on the driving range.   A little embarrassing.

Honestly, which ever one that does what I want it to do. I love when I hit the big dog well. Yesterday was one of those days.... at least most of the round. I also love when I am knocking my wedges stiff... I just wish my putter was working at the same time.

I have overpriced Mizuno irons and a Titleist driver, yet my favorite club is still an inexpensive Jack Nicklaus VMax 5w. I think I paid $35 for it new on the discount rack several years ago. 

I don't know why it's so easy to hit, but when I'm on with it I get a lot of height, not a lot of side spin, and relatively good distance. I just line up and swing easy.

I haven't been practicing as much as I should with my fairway woods and it's showing up in the form of mishits of late, but that has nothing to do with the club.

7-wood. I get 200+ yards, it's straight and is great out of the rough. I use it on 3 shot par-5's. 

I've never been any good with woods out of rough. Do you approach the shot differently?

My 3H has been very reliable lately, so I will promote it to favorite club status. I hit it between 180 and 200 depending on conditions and lie.

    • Gotcha. But your pic does look like that’s a crease and not part of the design. At least imo.
    • Think that’s the extreme version in the pic. Got mine from my club pro who ordered from cobra direct.
    • I’m not sure if Cobra has these changes in the decorations, but your colors aren’t the same from the pic I sent. Where did you buy your driver? Possible fake? Looks like a defect.
    • I got my Cobra SZ white driver a few months back but only just recently noticed theres a small uneven part on the edge which I’ve circled in the photo. Can anyone confirm if this is a dent or if someone has this driver, can they can check and see if they have the same? I can’t think of anywhere where I’ve dented it and I’m wondering if it’s maybe just the chassis in the club with the t bar etc? You can also feel a ridge or something similar going up to the left of the vertical red line which isn’t smooth either which I’ve tried to highlight in the second pic but it’s barely visible on camera. You can feel it with your finger. Again I’m wondering if it’s just part of the chassis as I can also feel a part on the head which isn’t completely smooth but there’s no indentation on the head part.
    • They should be done. The ACC is a dumpster fire this year. They don't have enough tough games left to get back in. I am sure there should be  4 1-loss teams remaining.
