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.

My favorite club is a pitching wedge.  The one I'm using, at present, has 47 degrees of loft...about the same as my old 9 iron.  I've always preferred a bit less loft to a bit more and tend to leave t

It changes but at present I covet Mizuno irons and Titleist woods & hybrids. Maybe Callaway then Taylor Made, nothing else on my radar at present (and I've tried others). But club choice is very p

I've never had a single favorite club in 52 years. I guess I'm most confident with middle irons, say 5 through 8. I've had great shots with every club in the bag, just slightly fewer with some than ot

Driver and putter.  Driver is a Ping G25 that I picked up almost new for a little over $100.  I find the driver - especially this Ping - to be the easiest club to hit in the bag.  It's forgiving on mis-hits and goes forever.  My putter is an old school Ping Anser 4, and I just roll it well.

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

 

Sorry, this was a while back, but i've been on a golf vacation.

 

The Edels are amazing. The fitting process is intensive, and they get amazing spin. Probably the best club purchases I have ever made. It's between that and my new SC Squareback Studio Select (A couple of years old, but I got it new for 200$ CDN at a closing sale at a local shop) for best clubs i've ever owned.

3 wood for the past few months. It used to give me the "willies" when I was faced with a long fwy or off the tee. I overcame that by just hitting that, mostly,that during some practice sessions. I get about 200 -210 yards now with confidence

  • iacas changed the title to What's Your favorite club and why?

My driver because it is my most consistent club.  And i really enjoy watching the ball go where I want it with the driver, much more so than with any other club.

    • It would be nice to watch Covid slowly just fade away as vaccinations increase. Unfortunately the dopes who have refused to get it will dream up some other reason why Covid faded. Or we’re in for another lockdown as Delta and other variants surge and they’ll say, ‘ see..what good is the vaccine any way.’ Again, profound ignorance.
    • Birdied #16 at Quail Brook today. Pulled my drive onto the 15th tee box and got to my ball where a couple of my friends were waiting to tee off, ready to heckle me. Had about 90 yards to the flag and hit a partial GW to 2'. The ball mark was 2' short of the hole from where I was and the ball ended up 2' past it. I don't know if it had a chance to go in; it probably took a hop and spun. I would have never heard the end of it if I didn't hit a good shot there.
    • Shot 85 from the tips at Quail Brook for an 11.1 differential. Hit 9 GIR. I’m starting to drive the ball better and it’s exposing weaknesses in other areas of my game.
    • Played Quail Brook today, birdied 16 in dramatic fashion. New one for the away composite.
    • I will be brief, since others have weighed in and I echo the vast majority of what they've said (plus I love bullet points).  Naga-Waukee War Memorial - 6 A fun course, architecturally interesting Several nice views Walkable Passes the "I'd play here often" test Club at Lac La Belle - 6.5 Great Parkland golf.  I think the score suffered a little because all the other courses were so unique, but if this place were near my house it'd be one of the better courses available to play publicly. Walkable Firm, well-maintained greens with interesting contours Good combination of tough holes and less-challenging ones Not many real recovery options on a bad shot - most often, you're punching out from trees or laying up from a fairway bunker Passes the "I'd play here often" test  Favorite hole: #16 Lawsonia Links - 8 Unique and visually interesting Walkable Well-maintained greens with interesting contours, with play varying based on hole location (2) Par-3's were too long for me to really enjoy playing them Too many blind tee shots Some of the most fun approach shots I've had to play Passes the "I'd drive a couple hours to play here" test Favorite hole: #7 Mammoth Dunes - 8 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways Turns out, I really enjoy "resort golf".  Separation value (which @iacas) referred to above is different for a 14-hcp...I liked that a wider range of shots were rewarded, but you still have to hit the ball solidly. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test Sand Valley - 8.5 Visually stunning Walkable Huge greens and fairways This is an aspirational course for me - breaking 90 the second day, even from an easier set of tees, felt like a real accomplishment...something I had to work damn hard for.  This is the kind of course I want to be good enough to play well.  At the end of the day, that's what ticked it 0.5 above Mammoth Dunes. Passes the "I'd drive a long way to stay/play here again" test
