Driver, 3W, 3H usually over 200

Then my 4i hovers around the 200 mark that's about the longest club I'll use to attack the green if there is water involved. If it's just rough or bunkers, then I'll give the 3W or 3H a swing.

Driver, 3w and sometimes 4i.  At some point I may start relooking at UI's and hybrids as my 5w is only getting me 180-190 and the 3w 200-210.  I'd love to find a stick that reliably carries 220 off the deck... which I find to be the ask on well hit drives on a good many par 5's I play 😐.

I could not vote since there is not a 0 answer. I used to have 2-3 clubs, but age has me at the point of my driver sometimes go 200 but nothing else does. That is why I have three wedges since in order to score I need a great short game.

The last three years I have not had a club in my bag that I can hit 200 yards. I am age 77. The last 10 years I have lost at least 30 yards off the tee. Of course that relates to all the other clubs too. My old 150 club is now my 135 club. But don't feel too sorry for me. I still have a great short game and shoot my age a few times each year.

At 74 I can get my driver past 200 most of the time and if I'm lucky I can still get my 3W to 200.  Fortunately, these shots are usually straight.  We have to have a decent short game when we can't put the ball out as far as we used to.  I've been flirting with shooting my age, but haven't done it yet.

Closest I have come was a 69 when I was 66 and when I was 69 needed birdie on the 18th to shoot 69 dumped it into a green side bunker on my second shot and that was the end of that opportunity. I'll be 79 in three weeks and my chance seems pretty slim these days.

You can doooo it!  I shot 74 two years ago when I was 72.  Had a 75 last month when I was 73.  All the stars have to be aligned just right, but I hoping this is the year.

I marked down 4 BUT currently I have 1 that I half way trust to hit at a green. After my return from knee surgery a couple of months ago, it became obvious that I needed help at the top of the bag. Honestly, I was not hitting the green or even close to the green from 150, although most of the time I was having to hit out of the trees. 

My first step was the driver. I ended up with the G425Max. I do not hit it as far as I occasionally hit my M5, but I’ve been getting about 240 carry with it. We’ve had so much rain it has been easy to tell the carry vs roll because if it hasn’t plugged it is a couple of feet from the pitch mark, but I’m hitting it dead straight and usually in the fairway. When I miss the fairway it is because I tried to work the ball and this just likes to go straight. This is something I can get used to 

I went for a fitting a couple of weeks ago and was seriously considering Ping G425Max 3-5-7 woods and 4-5-6-7 hybrids. Then ended up buying used i500 6-P. I’m very happy with these clubs. On the launch monitor, I was hitting the i500 6 iron 176 and the G425Max 9 wood 190. 7 wood 205, 5 wood 220 and 3 wood 235. These were total distances. Unfortunately, or perhaps fortunately, they only had the 9 wood in my specs. I was concerned that in real life the 6 iron-9Wood gap was too big, so I just bought the 9 wood. In reality, I am not hitting either of these as far as in the bay, but as mentioned the conditions here are bad. We have had rain 10 of the last 14 days. 

I also was able to buy a like new Ping G410 5 wood for $180 less than a G425Max 5 wood. I’m waiting on the ox cart  it was shipped on to get here and determine if I should spend the bucks for the G425Max or G410’s. 

I will say that the G425Max is working hard to pay for itself. I’ve made $127 the last 3 days with this club. I’ve only played with it 3 times and all three days I’ve used it several times and gotten birdies from 180-ish out. Yesterday I shot my lowest round since before my injury, but today I had just 1 great shot that made up for the overall pitiful performance. Short game was my problem today. Although, I did sink a 30’ putt for a birdie yesterday that won me 20 of those dollars I attributed to the 9 wood.  

I’m excited about these clubs. I’m just waiting to see if the 425’s was worth $300 new. So far based on the 9 wood I think so. The flat setting on the Pings is just perfect for me. I have a Mizuno ST190 5 Wood that I hit well and it goes 210+ and is relatively reliable, and a M6 3 wood that is great off the tee, but I may hit is 220 or 120 off the deck. I went to a different store to buy the 7 wood after I hit the 9 wood so well, but they didn’t have it either. Sadly the holiday weekend will be over before I can get the 9 wood.

Technically I’ve got 4, but that 5 iron is close.

I've built my bag up to have consistent gapping through the bag as much as possible. I have an extra wedge vs a 3 hybrid or 3 wood because I found I wasn’t using them. I only ever hit a 3 wood off the tee, and I’m giving up maybe 5 yards off the tee with the 5-wood, and thats probably not the whole story because I hit the 5-wood much better.

Being as I am 73 and have 6 rods holding my lumbar together my answer is zero, but I still love to get out there and try.

Thankfully my hybrid and 4 iron cover some good ground and I enjoy hitting them both off the tee or into long par 5. My driver and 3 wood are the others. I play game improvement irons and having the forgiveness and still being able to hit a 4 iron that far has brought a lot of enjoyment to my golf game
