  1. Thanks for the reply. I understand that people need to adapt, and I'm just trying to figure out how people do it. I also agree that my distinction between distance and specific distance doesn't make sense. Maybe it just comes down to me feeling foolish carrying around a PW and a 47* wedge in my bag...
  2. Good luck with the new wedge! I've found that the 58* is not terribly hard to hit, and is certainly easier than the 64*. I've always thought of that loft as a niche club for when you expect a lot of short chips that need a lot of spin. Plus, the gap between your new 548 and old 64* is bound to be significant.
  3. Personally, I like having a 47, 52, and 58. These give me options but don't take up a ton of space in the bag so I can still have the long clubs that I want. The 58* wedge is really an all star at most chip shots that you need to get into the air. The 52* throws it up and can carry a bit farther if you need it to. I've tried the 52, 56, and 60 plan but I never found that I knew when to use the 56 vs the 60.
  4. I've been able to have my driver develop a consistent miss to the right. I aim left and then let it float back into the fairway like @9wood was talking about. It has worked for me, but I am sure that I could get more distance if I straightened it out. This ball flight also tends to make me use lower clubs on dogleg lefts. My worry, however, is that in trying to fix the fade I'll just lose all of my consistency. But to address OP's topic, I think it comes down to finding the weaknesses in your game that are losing you the most shots and fix them. Because of this consistent ball flight
  5. Hello all, I played a lot a few years ago and I'm just now getting back into the game. In 2008 I bought some Taylormade r7XD irons and was amazed at the distance that I got out of them. I later learned that they were lofted one club higher so they were all essentially misnumbered. The 6 iron was really a 5 iron etc. As a result of this, I had a huge gap between my PW and my 52* wedge so I bought a 47* wedge. As I'm getting back into golf, it seems like most irons have this problem of having too much distance. The goal of irons is not to go super far, but to go a specific distance,
  6. I have a 4 iron as my longest iron. I feel like my skill with the high irons is such that I'm just better off hitting my 5 wood a little shorter than I would trying to get a 3 iron to stick.
  7. Wouldn't it be incredibly expensive to get such a set of clubs?
  8. Thanks for the input! The girlfriend will very much appreciate that answer haha
  9. (1) Get my swing back (2) Stay focused all through the round (3) Get back to bogey golf (4) Improve my short game
  10. Hello all, I played a lot of golf in about 2008 and got to around a 7-8 handicap. Now I'm getting back into the game and I'd like to get some equipment advice. Here's the bag I had in my closet in 2008: Taylormade r7 Driver Taylormade Burner 3 and 5 Woods Taylormade r7 XD Irons 4-PW (These things are super lofted so the gap between the PW and the 52* was insane) Cleveland CG14 Wedges 48, 52, 58 Yes! Tiffany Putter Now, obviously I need a ton of practice in order to get anywhere near where I was in 2008. However, I'd like some advice as to what impro
  11. Just getting back into the game, so here's the bag I had in my closet in 2008: Taylormade r7 Driver Taylormade Burner 3 and 5 Woods Taylormade r7 XD Irons 4-PW (These things are super lofted so the gap between the PW and the 52* was insane) Cleveland CG14 Wedges 48, 52, 58 Yes! Tiffany Putter So I'm assuming that I need to get all new clubs to be competitive in 2016. Here's what I'm thinking about getting once I have my swing back in order: Callaway XR16 Pro Driver Callaway XR16 Pro 3 and 5 Woods Mizuno MP-25 Irons 4-PW Titleist Vokey 52, 56,
