WIYB that makes no sense?

Recommended Posts

What club in your bag is most out of place? Here I'm looking for guys with a bag of senior flex shafts—and then one club that's X-flex. Or the other way around. Or you carve up the course with a set of blades, and a chipper.

I don't have a good one here myself, but I suspect some of you will have some great answers here. What's the club for you that you carry, that just works, but doesn't make sense given the rest of your bag?

Okay, who uses a mini golf putter?

I don't have a great one, but the most out of place club is my 2 iron. I am really not a good enough ball striker to play a 2 iron but for whatever reason, it works well. Also, I can only hit it off the deck, put it on a tee, and I catch it high on the face and it goes about 70 yards. I don't understand any of what is happening, but if it works, it works. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I don't think this is too crazy, but you get points for your ending. Caught me off guard and made me laugh.

I would say my 3 wood. Every club is a stuff shaft, was fit into stuff shafts but the 3 wood has a regular flex shaft that is lighter than the driver shaft. In my bag because I got a good deal and hit it well. My club champion fitter told me not to change that it would be tough to beat.

My longest iron (Cobra King Utility) is lower lofted and plays a longer distance than my hybrid. 

3H (215), 3i (230), 4w (250)

I very rarely use the 3i off the deck for any approach. The 3i is used 80% off the tee, 10% for punchouts, and 10% for approaches off the deck (maybe once every 3-4 rounds).If there's room to miss with a good lie, I back off the 4w. If there's a bad lie or not much room to miss, I use the 3 hybrid and miss short. The 3i is easily the most unnecessary club in my bag, but I like hitting it so it stays in the bag.

My PE2 2i has seen very little action in recent years. It use to be my option for a 3w (persimmon days) which never treated me well.  I then acquired my Warbird 3w and, ever since, the 2i only gets pulled once in awhile.  If I ever switch to a different set of irons, I may still want a 3i, but for certain not a 2i... besides, most modern sets probably won't offer one anyway.

I carry two 5 irons and have two gap wedges only two degrees apart. I blended a set of V6 and C300 forged and the C300 forged 5 iron was 20 yards longer than my V6 6 iron, so now I’ve got two. The V6 gap wedge is 50 and my RTX-4 is a 52, but there’s a 10 yard gap between them so they are in the bag. I’m obviously carrying a few more than 14 clubs.

When I graduated college in 2003 I was handed an emerald colored gemstone the size of a kidney bean. I threw it in my bag and never thought of it again. In that same zipper pouch is two ferrules, a couple buttons from a shirt and a yellow sharpie.

Ha! I would guarantee every golfer has their "pocket of junk". In mine, I have, a change of socks, an old broken ball mark repair tool, a bottle of Purell, and 4 pennies. Now the fact that I can remember this now, but can never remember to throw any of it away, baffles me.

I like the fact that you remember that you have 4 pennies. That’s precise.

I have the V4's and also carry the set GW, which I had bent to 50, as well as RTX 52, 56, and 60.  There is about a 10 yard gap between 50 and 52.  Don't carry a 3 wood, which is odd to most, but I hit a long ball and all it has ever done is get me into trouble.

I play a 45° PW and 46° GW. Makes sense only for dynamic spacing, 10 yards difference in play.

 

Also, my entire set has standard sized grips with one extra layer of tape under the lower hand. But my Fourteen RM-22 SW has an MCC Plus 4 grip.

 

It's very noticeably significantly thicker in the lower hand but it works, so it's stayed.

Yeah I can’t do fairway woods. I go from the 3 iron straight to a 16 hybrid. It gives me all the distance I could ask for.

All of my clubs are stiff, except for my XR 3W that’s a regular flex. It was the first 3W I bought when I started golfing and I just haven’t got around to upgrading it yet. I had a stiff TM 3W last summer, but I didn’t care for it, so I went back to the “trusty not-so-rusty” Callaway.

My Yankee rain gear

I converted to the Rays years ago but am too cheap to change out. :)

I swore my PE2 2i was never coming out of my bag, no matter what (I've said it on several occasions.)  Then I discovered a Cleveland Halo 3 hybrid.  No more 2i.
