Fave is 8 iron. Can just stick it. Worst is 5 iron. I seem to always thin it on long par 3’s

The club I love and hate the most is my 60 degree. When its on and I keep my head still for the 30-65 yard shot 2 bounces and checks right where I want it to be. But on those bad days I become sir chu

Most consistent right now seems to be my 7 iron. I am struggling with my Callaway super hybrid, I’m looking at getting it reshafted, my instructor thinks it’s to heavy for my swing. Callaway customer service has been good.

I would say the best club in my bag for my game is the driver. It's what gives me an edge over most people in the field. The game is easier when you can turn par 5s into par 4.5s, and some par 4s into par 3.5.

 

I would say that worst club is my 16° hybrid. Not that it's a bad club, it's just that it's the one where my bad swing habits (getting steep and flipping my hands to try and square the face) are magnified most. It's not unheard of for me to hit that 240m but with a 50m hook. That said those hooks are getting rarer in my game. Just a process of time to iron out bad habits.

What I considered my best club 2 years ago is now my worst which is the 3 wood. I just can not hit this club straight. Thank goodness the last day before the course closures I cracked it. My best club would be the pitching wedge. I have confidence in the club with full shots to chipping. BTW just ordered the Mizuno ST180 3W with the Tensei CK Blue shaft. Hoping for better results as I didn't get to test it out before buying.

I am totally comfortable with all my clubs from half to full swing. Anything less than half swing; basically a finesse shot, I hate them all.

Worst club for me is the driver. I hate it, jus looking at them makes me sick.

Best club... I’d have to go with my 2 hybrid if finding the fairway is a must.

I am shocked that a wedge of some type isn’t in your best club.

My least favorite club in my bag is probably my 3 hybrid, although I played yesterday and smoked it about 230 yards into a 10 mph head wind.  My favorite club is my 3 wood.  I am usually money with that off the tee or the turf.  I also love a good 7 iron.

Thanks!  It was flushed..however what I failed to mention is that I hit the green with that shot.  It then shot off the back side, under a tree and up to the side of the next holes tee box.  Funny thing was that walking up to the ball before I hit it, I was talking about times when people get good breaks in golf vs bad breaks.  I was pumped after the ball left the club face.  Get up to the green and don't see the ball.  Finally find it, now I am stuck with a downhill lie, a large tree that I can't really go over with a greenside bunker between the green and the tree.  Needless to say, I doubled that damn hole.  haha  I may have left all of that out.  haha.  But damn, that hybrid shot FELT good.

Love this question. Favorite club in the bag is easily my 3 wood. When I need to find a fairway, that is my go to club; the big dog goes away for one hole. My least favorite/most frustrating club is my putter. It has some good days, but boy does it have some bad days....

Yeah, I thought about picking my PW.

Maybe I should have said it’s the most versatile, I’ve used it from just about everywhere imaginable on the course... swamp, sand, tree (yes in a tree branch), fringe, rough, extra rough, putted... can hit pitch shots with it, drove a par 4 in 1, stuck a super long par 5 in 2, used it on a long par 3... stingers, high bombs... endless uses.... no flops though (new challenge)

Without it, I’d be lost I think. It’s my go to, all for around $30 I believe.

Wedges of course are my overall favorites. But when the 2brid decides to break I’ll have a heck of a time replacing it.

I can always count on my 3H to hook it into the woods OB. And then when I think to myself that I will hook this next one, then I hit it straight.
