ARRRGGGGG Thats tempting, but I did just get a wood that I need to try before I think of getting another club. Thank you for the heads up though!

I’ve really thinned out the herd.

i own only 17 clubs right now… a driver, 3&5 FW, 18,21 and 24* hybrids, irons 5-GW, wedges 52,58* two putters.

I’m not looking for anything else until the ‘22 releases are out, but even then it will most likely be a tweaking situation rather than an overhaul. (The lone exception is if I can ever get my hands on the G425 Max driver I was fit for back in June. Apparently the shaft I need is golf’s version of Sasquatch. There are rumors it’s a thing, but nobody can find it.)

2022 is going to be about golf, not golf clubs for me. I know I have quality equipment, so now I really want to concentrate on getting my game back to where it should be.

…and once I decide between the 3 hybrid and 5 wood and the 5 iron or 5 hybrid going in my bag it will be down to 15!

I have a Top Flite Intimidator 400 7-wood which would clearly be considered a 9-wood in modern lofts.

I haven't played it in quite a while but it was a great club from the rough,

from a divot,

for getting the ball quickly over a tree,

or for a nice vertical descent on a tough to hold green.  Made monumental ball marks.

It would be absolutely plausible to see it back in my bag with just a new grip.

 

Now I'm going entirely from memory here, but off the top of my head, the only frequent MGS poster who routinely bags a 9-wood is the Rev.

If I remember, he goes striaght from there to a six-iron, although his 6-iron, if I recall, is close to my 5-iron in loft.

 

He's a Ping fairway wood guy as I recall, and the Ping 5-7-9 metal combo is from all accounts a nice, hittable set in recent models.

 

Unlike Floridian Rev, I've got an entire winter to think about it, but as a senior, a configuration like that might be favorable for me as well.

 

Anybody else in the gang looking at a 9-wood?

I see.   I find them a little problematic from sidehill and downhill lies, but those aren't my favorite shots with any club.

Recently left my Jaws MD5 58-10 lob on 18 at the last course I played. Called them and somehow no one turned anything in. So needless to say now I’m the market for a new wedge. I use that club a lot around the green so it was probably about time anyways since I’ve been playing it just shy of 2 years.

I live in South Florida where is usually always soft and wet. So really leaning towards the Ping Glide 3.0 in the same 58-10 for wet spin performance. 

Really I should probably replace my 50 and 54 as well. At 90% or so I’m at 105, 90, and 75 yds with my 50-54-58 setup. Probably going to adjust my game so my 50 deg for 50-100yds out and 58 for 50 and under. My 54 I’ll use exclusively just for the sand and probably go lower bounce since the sand is usually damped or packed here. Never really play in fluffy stuff. Probably stick with the Glide for 50 but not really sure what to look at exclusively for the sand. Any suggestions for a sandy?

So this will probably be one of the few posts I will make in this thread where i am not thinking about buying something, but thinking about the piece of equipment itself.

Thinking about the Apex UW. I currently reshafted one for a customer and I am looking at it in detail. It looks like a hybrid, the head weighs more in the range of a hybrid than a fairway wood, its more like the length of a hybrid, seems like its a hybrid to me (slightly longer). However, the one thing that throws it off in my mind is that it takes a 0.335" wood shaft rather than the more typical 0.370" hosels in hybrids.

You did recall correctly. LarryD hit my 9 wood a couple of months ago and was eBay in the parking lot as I was leaving the course. 🙂

 

Yes my 160 yard club has about the same loft as my old Ping Eye 2 5 that I used to hit from 180. 
 

We all get old at some point.

Tour Exotics 3 wood is in the bag because we are allowed 14 clubs.  It's a great club for pulling balls out of the water or from bushes - you never want to put your hand into anything in Florida unless you are absolutely certain that it's safe.  There are rare wind conditions when I might hit it off the tee on a few holes that I play.

I have not been able to get the Mizuno pro 223s out of my head since the announcement.  I'm afraid to go search out a demo because I'm sure I'll be posting on club hos anonymous about 5 minutes after I find them.  😁
