Lately it's a tie: Adams 2013 Tight Lies 5W with shortened shaft and Miz JPX Fli Hi 3. They get me on or near more greens. My HI problem seems to be putting and the odd stray chip from time to time. Working on that. -Marv

Leaning toward my wedges as I feel they allow the most creativity.

Driver is a close second for the entertainment quality. Both good and bad.

Yeah, that's what I thought too.

BTW, I'd sleep with my wedges if they wouldn't poke me in the side when I rolled over! :-D 

@David in FL enjoy your "sleep with my wedges" statement - my dad always told me "if you find a putter you like sleep with it" (: Your statement brought back fond memories of him and his friends saying that and laughing together.

Currently I feel lucky, I have bagging my Son's King Cobra Speed LD F/10.5 Driver who inherited it from my dad.  When I hit that Driver it leaves a vapor trail, it is a sight to behold and a lot of fun.  As well as my Mizuno T7 52 and 56 degree wedges in blue, oh how i like using them.  Followed by my Bettinardi BB32 putter!  I got fitted for this and man oh man is it sweet.  Averaging 31 to 32 putts per 18 and I feel like when I have it in my hands I can sink a putt from anywhere

@boogielicious   My swing with my seven wood is the same as my other woods. I did have a three hybrid but I couldn't hit it straight consistently.  Most of the time my hybrid would hook.  I didn't know when it would go straight or hook.  I've read that you swing the hybrid like an iron and that felt strange.  A lot about my swing and my equipment on my trip. For me I play better with the same equipment. When I left on my trip I took my  Nike  seven wood, but it did not feel the same as my tailor-made woods, so I bought a tailor-made seven wood in Wisconsin.  Man, what a great difference. I

It used to be my 8 Iron.  I was always money with my 8 Iron.  I would lay up on Par 5's to 150 out because I knew my 8 Iron would land within 5-10 yards of the hole.  But then I lost my swing, lost control and distance on my 8 Iron.

Now, there is not a single club in the bag I would consider a "go-to" club.

My Cleveland 58 degree wedge is by far my favorite club. I love the way it feels in my hands, definitely the most confident club in the bag.

For me it is a tie between my PW and my Driver.  The PW is what I use for most shots around the green and my Driver because when I get it right the distance is good.

I don't know what the story is re: TM Burner Bubble metals, but I have a 1-3-5 in far better condition with covers someone can have for the cost of shipping...

Thinking about purchasing them?

Just did. 

Only slight disappointment was I was hoping they were a 3W and 5W. Instead one was a driver, which I won't likely use. A backup 5W would have been nice. Got em for $40.

Now to see if I can hit that 3W anywhere near as well as the 5W.

I have a 16* Taylor Raylor that I bought new in the early 90's that has consistently been in the bag and won't leave anytime soon. Can't really call it a favorite, but fairly reliable over the years. My Callaway hybrids are also reliable, and the 4h is a go to club when nothing else is working. I have used it successfully from 152 to 185 yards.

I have upgraded the rest of the bag this summer, though, and pleased enough, though the irons and I have not completely worked out our relationship. For the first time ever, I actually have a matched set of wedges, and that is enlightening.

My favorite clubs are my 56* custom ground Edel, and my Taylormade SLDR 3 wood. Two clubs that i'm always happy to to swing, as it seems most of the time they can do no wrong. I took out my 917f to put the sldr back in, it's just the perfect 3 wood for me. The shaft is perfect, the head looks just right, it feels like a part of me. So I guess thats at the very top of my list.

As I stated earlier, I can't really say that I have a favorite club, but this year my 5W has been my most consistent club aside from my putter.  Just sometimes wish I could use it in more situations.  :mellow:

I could sleep with my three Edels, but my wife likes to be the only one of my ladies in our bed. (Yes, I give my clubs names, my 3w is Kirsty (named after a fiance who passed away), my 56* is Ezri, my putter is Jadzia, and my driver is Janice, my driving iron is Deanna, and so on.

Hilarious Apoc81 - maybe get a king sized bed to fit all of those "lady" friends.  With 4 daughters a former and The Wife I just could not name all my clubs with women's names.  Need some safe zone away from all of the bosses in my life (:  How are Edel wedges?  I have never hit them but they sure are pretty looking in the pictures

Ha! That's great. 2 daughters + wife here. Understand 100% :)

I do name my drivers and putters but not people names. Good idea for a new thread.

    • And it is worth discussing why this is.  There really are 2 different components to the increasing strength of field. 1) the first is the increase in the sheer numbers of golfers through globalization, i.e, and expanding pool.  There is still a fair amount of room for growth here.  As widespread as the growth of golf has been there are still some pretty untapped places with large population, like China and Russia. 2) the second applies to Tiger/Jack comparisons, but will not apply to Tiger/future comparisons.  And that is the concentration of the very best global players in the 8-10 most important events (i.e., the majors, the WGCs, and the Players.  It is hard for people to grasp the fact that until the very last days of Jack's competitive career neither he nor anyone else ever played in an event where substantially all of the best players in the world played.  Whereas now and, presumably for the future, virtually every one of the big events routinely draws all of the best players other than players sidelined by injury.
    • Day 17 In process of regripping my clubs, so did some putting in my living room with my kids.
    • Day 683 continous. It's probably closer to well over 900 days of continuous practice, and/or play, but this thread only goes back to 01/01/18. I don't post here daily, as it's too repetitive for me. I only use 6-8, different practice routines. Today I hit 40 practice chips from 6' off the reen. 40, 30+/- yard pitches. All these were hit to different pins, from a few different locations. Actually holed out a few. After the green side stuff, I hit seveal full swing shots out of a bunker with my SW,  7 iron, and 7 metal wood. . Used range balls for this. I don't get many opportunities to to hit out of fair way bunkers.  After the sand stuff, i finished up with some d-range shots to to different targets as I meandered through my bag of clubs.  Every practice shot had a purpose, and a specific target was used for all of them. Some I used my preshot rountine on. Others, not so much. I spent alot of time focused on my swing tempo, timing, and speed. I wanted the balls to go consistent distances, per each club/shot I hit. I rely heavily on consistency in my game. Some days are better than others. I was out early, and probably spent 2+ hours practicing. The weather is great, course conditions are great, and I feel great, so the extended practice time was more of a fun adventure than anything else. I didn't rush things.  Later on today I will hit some practice putts. Would've done the putting thing this morning, but those greens were being mowed, and pins rearranged. Not a big deal, since my chipping, and putting strokes are identical. I practice one, I am practicing the other. 
    • I appreciate this perspective.  I do not debate any of the empiricism that underpins these dictates, and to be sure I spend most of my practice time working out my full swings. I just do not see why one can't do both.  It's not like I can be swinging a club while on this forum.
    • Me too. Imposter syndrome.  It's not a nice feeling.  The fact that you are most definitely being watched makes it even more ominous. A bucket is what, $10.00?  The downside just seems to outweigh the up. I may be out on a limb here.  But I think there is something untoward about an adult who does not get such a feeling at times like that.
