What’s your Approach?


Recommended Posts

Today was another lightning in a bottle round of golf.  Checking our my club usage I used my 58 on 16 of 18 holes.  
 

1 of them was a rocket at 125

1 of them was 105 off the tee

4 of them were in the 80-105 range

1 of them were in the 60-70 range

3 of them were in the 40-60 range

2 of them were in the 30-40 range

3 off them were in the 20-30 range

1 of them was under 10

Even if I moved back a tee, I would have a 52 or PW into the greens unless I hit a short iron off the tee.

Morale of the story is I need to go get a super fit 58° wedge.

 

Anyone else keep track of this?

Yup, this is one of the best things about Arccos.  I was considering dropping a wedge and going to a 52/58 or 50/57 setup.  When I looked at my club usage, I realized that my wedges are by far the most used clubs in my bag and sacrificing a spot in my wedge slot would be extremely foolish.

Yes I do. my 56* is rarely used and 99% of the shots I could use it for I opt to use the 52* which is my most heavily used club. I have debated replacing it recently with something higher end of the bag but we will see.

I don’t know what to do.  Definitely need to take a look at the bag.  I like swinging for the fences.  I may have to add a 62/64 wedge for the shorter shots.

take out the 2 hybrid, 3 iron, and 4 iron… add a 2 wood… I have no idea.  Or just leave it alone cause it ain’t broke.

Yea its tough if you like to consistently take those full shots. The 52* for me I can use 100 yards and in. Shortside pin along the fringe I cannot but I use the 60* in lieu of the 56* typically. I have learned to love 1/4-3/4 swings lately. All in what ya like buddy!

How do you see usage in your 2 hybrid/3 iron.  Is one barely used?  Do they overlap in utility or yardages?  I am a big believer in every club needs to have a job.  If a club ends up having a job that is so narrow in scope that I barely use it (ie a driving iron), I look to replace it with a club I would use more often.

I rarely use the 2 hybrid, and I switch it out with the 3 iron depending on the wind.  4 iron is my “fairway finder”, but I can sacrifice it if need be.

the 2 hybrid, if stuck well goes far.  It is a tee club only for me.  Not something I would hit into the greens. 240-260 depending on wind. 
 

4 iron is a 220+ club now apparently.  I did hit a 5 iron today 220…. 
 

these T100•S are stupid hit off the face.

HerE is my usage stats since I put the T-100’s in the bag.  The wedges have about 6 months on them, the 3 wood is an antique and the 2 hybrid has been in the bag since forever.

Sounds like you have the opportunity to optimize the top of your bag to free up a club to use lower in the bag (maybe go 52 56 60, 50 54 58 or 50 55 60 depending on your gapping preferences)

Looks like a 4 wood might be the ticket for you.  Or even the Radspeed Tour 5 wood

I can finesse the wedges.  I used to practice 3-4 hours a day with them…  that’s how I get such a variance out of the 58, but one more wedge could never hurt…. Right?

If I  could hit a 58* 125 yds. it would be the only wedge in my bag. 😂

This one is due for retirement… it’s a PING Glide 1.  Kind of scared to get rid of it.  Like the 3 wood… if I “upgrade” will it perform the same.

I of all people never thought I’d say that I like a CB wedge, but this thing has been a workhorse.  Definitely earned its place in my club HOF.

I don't track my 58* use but I do know I wear the grip out on it quicker than other clubs so I use the heck out of it.

You can always try a 62 or 64 and see if you like it and revert back if you don't. You can also just replace your Glide with another Glide wedge as I'm sure you can probably find another if your is close to stock. 

I would say that it appears you play a course where a lot of the holes are probably of a similar yardage. This is a little off topic but I really wish course would get more creative with their tee placement. This is one of the downsides of the course rating handicap system as it really locks in certain tees in certain areas. Playing from the back tees should be the longest on the course but there is no reason that they have to be at the tips on every hole every day. Same goes for the other tees. If I were to own a course, people would be confused when they would see the "back" tees sometime being in front of other tees on certain holes. Yes, I would have that much variation. I remember helping with some national MidAm tournaments and golf association setting up the course actually had some of the tees on the ladies (sorry forward) boxes to change things up. It was really eye opening at the time but there is logic to it. You can make some par 4s and par 5s real risk vs reward holes from the forward tees. Unfortunately, the golfers that play lots of handicapped events get all pissy when superintendents are the slightest bit creative because it could throw a wrench in their handicap. Lots of a course's characteristics are lost when tees don't move. Sure, some course have ratings for blended tees and this helps but it still isn't the best. end rant
