  1. mouellette,

    Hope to see  you posting more often.

    What you might do is put a What's In My Bag segment either in your sig line, or in the List function. If we know the model and mix of you clubs, and the shaft types, we can better tell what you're trying to do with your game.

    Thanks WUTiger, It says I'm not allowed to change my signature, assuming because I haven't posted enough yet, and i can't seem to find that list function either. But here it is..

    Driver- Cobra amp cell pro 9*5, stock stiff shaft

    Hybrid- titleist 585 21*, stock stiff shaft

    Irons- 4,5,6- Mizuno mp 54, True Temper xp 105 s300 shafts (2* flat)

    7,8,9- Mizuno mp 64, True Temper xp 105 s300 shafts (2* flat)

    Wedges- Titleist sm4 52*, 56*, 60* (2* flat)

    Putter- Odyssey white hot #6

  2. One of the people I play with also carries about 300 yards. 290 on a bad day and 320 on a good day. He doesn't have a 3W and carries a 5W (I've never seen him use it even on a 7100 yard course).

    I would say to stick with your hybrid as you hit it roughly 250 yards. Does it roll much past 250?

    I like to play a draw so i do get a little more roll as oppose to most people who fade the ball

  3. I completely agree with this. You could always try a 4 wood instead. That's what I did last year and I'm much happier with the 4. I can hit it no problem off the deck and I like it off the tee on short par 4's if I don't hit my driver.

    I have tried 4 and 5 woods as well. Easier to get off the ground but still have that awful pull hook.

  4. OP, When you say you can't hit a 3w what exactly do you mean?

    It's either a big pull hook and I just can't get it more than 10 yards off the ground. Off the deck or tee. But that's not the only reason why I'm ditching it. With the distances I'm getting, do I really even need a 3w? That's not that big of a gap.

  5. Hey guys, i'm stumped. I've officially decided to get rid of my 3 wood. I've tried at least 5 over the summer and still couldn't hit one. So what I think i'm going to do is add another long iron to my set. i'm a 9 handicap and I consider myself a solid ball striker. So i know I can handle the lower lofted irons. I carry my drives around 280-290 and the longest iron in my bag, 4 iron, around 230.  I also have a 21* hybrid that carries around 250-260. All that being said, i've tested out the sldr hybrid (22*) and averaged 265 carry with that, so it'll most likely be going in the bag next summer.  So my question to you is what loft iron should i get? i can work with that 20 yard gap between the hybrid and driver but that's a big gap between the 4 iron and hybrid.

I need to get a gap wedge myself, as the last iron set I got has a 46˚ pitching wedge and my other wedges are 54˚ and 60˚, which leaves me hitting too many touchy 75%-95% PW shots between 115 and 130.

    yeah my grooves are just about completely gone. starting to get a little too rusty as well. and they've got some pretty nice dents. haha so i'd say it's time for an upgrade.

  7. thanks. that's exactly what i was thinking. as of now i've been hitting my 53* 110yds, 56* around 100yds, and 60 anywhere inside 90yds. i haven't been hitting the 3i much anyways. much more comfortable with the hybrid.

  8. well i'm gearing up for the season and i need some new wedges. i'm most likely getting the titleist sm4 wedges. but here's my problem. i can't decide to get 2 or 3. my irons right now are 3-pw and i have a 53*, 56*, and a 60* wedge. that's 15 clubs including the putter, driver, hybrid, and 3 wood. since my hybrid and 3 iron are both the same loft and i hit them roughly the same either off the tee or ground, what i'm thinking of doing is taking out my 3 iron and get the 52*, 56* and 60* wedges. is that wedge overkill? i use my wedges probably the most. my other choice would be to keep the 3 iron in the bag and just get the 52* and 60*. any advice would be appreciated.
