Yeah, I think we need to call Homeland Security (or whatever y'all crazy Kiwi's have that is comparable, I'm too lazy to Google it.)

Hmmmm, you could do that but maybe I work in that industry.... 😜😁

They're called Maori warriors.  They don't need a department.

 I played my 4 club + putter round yesterday.  I have some words of wisdom but I'll let the other guys figure it out on their own.

This week's competition is going to be LIT (I'm 43, am I allowed to say "LIT"???)
I'm going to have to take a bit to figure out which horse I want to back in this race, there's a lot of great options to choose from.

Anything is possible when you finish in first place.

Phew, 30 minutes of catching up again.  Thank you very much @GolfSpy STUDque and the random wheel of Puma swag!   Thank you testers for answering the 4,567 questions posed by the forum this past week!   Really looking forward to the competition this week.  @Nunfa0 keep the streak going, I'm all in on the multinational lefty team!

Fired up for this challenge and also to be reunited with my fellow SuperSpeeder, Bucky. We will rock it.

 

I also played a 4 club challenge round yesterday in hopes that I might get a second round in later in the week.

 

Good luck guys is all that i can say. :)

This week is going to be a great challenge!!  It is really going to test the ability to think around the course.  With that being said, how did each team decide on the 4 clubs?

I went with 7iron and PW because I can make those work on the par 3s, 58* is my 100 and in club, and if you read my wood/hybrid review you know someone would have to pry my hybrid out of my hands. The only thing I’m a little concerned with, is on a couple of the par 5s it takes a pretty good knock to reach the fairway. I’m gonna try to get 2-3 rounds in to get the best score I can.

There wasn't much debate on our team.  Bardle hits the ball a mile and I don't.  I thought my best chance to score was by playing my normal course from my normal tees so I really needed my driver to play at 6,500 yards.  3 par 3's set up for my 3 hybrid and the other is usually a 7 iron.  It was weird playing with 4 clubs.  I played in the morning, same tees, same pins as my 4 club round in the afternoon and didn't use my 7 iron once other than the par 3 in  the morning.  I think what I realized is for the most part I'm going to miss a lot of greens regardless, up and downs are the best way for me to score.  I hit a couple of nice putts but missed a couple I wish I had back.  I also realized I am best off getting as close to the green as possible with each shot and not worrying about laying up to a spot to hit my 7.

I chose 3w because it is becoming my go to club off the tee. 7i and PW are the clubs I grab most often when I need to hit a confident shot as well as being able to flight different types of shots. The 52* is incredibly versatile for me 100yds and in, even around the green.

I am going to play a short muni that plays a shade under 6100y. Most holes can be reached with driver wedge so that's my strategy. I play it often enough that I don't think I will have to get too creative (I hope).

I am a little surprised you didn't substitute another wedge for your putter.

I went with the clubs that gave me the most options around the course. Almost all of our par 5s will be 2 hybrids and a wedge, the par 4s hybrid and  7 or wedge and the the par threes all fit nicely with those three clubs too

This is what I was wondering if everyone did when I asked the question.  I assumed that you had a specific course in mind and calculated backwards from the hole what clubs you could use to get there. 

That is something I had to do a few weekends ago when I was playing irons only.  Shot a 42 coming home, so I was pretty happy with that!

What do I need a driver for when I can hit the 3 wood like this? 😎

Seriously though, there wasnt much discussion, I let wedgie pick first and then I picked my tees based on what was left in the bag that I could use. 5i is the shot for several tee shots and 2 par 3's, 8 iron is for the other par 3 and ~160 is a distance I find myself at often when trying to hit the green...

I knew I was playing at home for the challenge so I know the course like the back of my hand. When I thought about the challenge I knew I had to have hybrid, and I can't believe I'm saying this, it's my go to club 🥰😁😎

Does this mean @Bucky CC‘s wife is going to give us a bag review?

This is a strong possibility.  I asked her if she would write a 100 word review on the bag since she took it from me and received a tentative yes.  Her first complaint was she could only fit two White Claws in the cooler pocket so it forces her to bring her own cooler to the course.  I'm a little worried.  😟

I'm on vacation this week at the family lake house.  I looked up the nearest course's scorecard, picked the tees, and worked backwords on each hole if I hit driver, 3W, or 3H off the tee.  Turns out 3H, 7 iron, 9 iron, and 54° wedge would cover about 90% of the holes.  I'm hoping to play my first round tomorrow morning so I can try it a few more times if needed.

Saturday and Sunday I'm playing in a two day partner event at my home course so I'll need to get all of my 4 club challenge rounds in Tuesday-Friday.

So not only did your wife take the bag but she has more fun on the course too 😝😎
