Do you practice and play with different sets of clubs?
Posted 16 May 2012 - 10:04 PM
Also, do you at times find yourselves using your practice clubs during an actual round? For me, this applies to my driver. I've been enjoying my Taylormade Superdeep so much that I can't kick it out of the bag.

My wife will not let me have a girl friend, kind of narrow-minded about that but....
I have no intentions of changing clubs once I finally get the shafts in this set figured out. Exchanging the C Tapers for KBS Tours tomorrow to try for a week. I have played different sets trying to decide which ones would be my gamers, but I would generally just play and practice with one set. I may rotate clubs in the past but I do not have the need to do that anymore. I would take out the 3 wood and add a wedge, but now I have 13 clubs that i do not change. I have two putters that I rotate some.

Our club champion practices with Cobra blades for ball-striking and plays tournaments with Ping i10 or i15. Make practice hard to improve, but use easier clubs to score.

I have a 3 iron that sometimes gets rotated into the bag, in practice rounds it is already in the bag but have not had a chance to hit it much on my home course, I have to pull it out just to try it from time to time. So in a practice round you might find me with 16 clubs in the bag (3 iron extra and a putter extra), come money game or tournament round I get it to 14 easily. If it is my home course and i need to have 14 the 3iron and my Scotty Putter stay in the trunk of my car.
Sorry W/S I don't need 'the blades... and the backups' I'll just take the blades

1. Great putters play to their tendencies and work with them
2. It isn't the method, it is the application of the method. Memorize the sequence of motion with clubs that fit the method.

I really like the belly from 15' in though I find distance control on lags challenging...I know that I should either put it in my bag & run with it or put it away...I'm a mental basket case right now because I used the WS 9082 for the better part of 31 years(1974-2005) & while I'm not getting any three putts, I'm killin myself from 10-15'...Four years ago I was 38% from 15' & now I'm @ 8%...Anyway, that's my bag...Fairways & Greens 4ever...

I figure via practice, I get to know my clubs, and use it during a real round...if I use one set for practice, the gamer might show different characteristics.
Of course, don't have enough funds to keep 2 nice sets of clubs anyways.

Like others I have alternate clubs, a 60 degree wedge with less bounce than my 59, a 5 wood vs. a 3 hybrid, that will make it into the bag depending on course conditions or the course I'm playing but I'd hardly consider that practice with different clubs - they are as for real as the ones that normally come with. I'll intentionally practice with all of the ones I use from time to time just in case the occasion arises where they are needed.
