BostonSal Posted December 23, 2021 Share Posted December 23, 2021 On 9/23/2021 at 4:30 AM, BIG STU said: SOP for me I only carry 12 leaves me room on some courses to put a speciality club in like on the top end a 1 or 2 iron and on the bottom end a speciality wedge like a Hogan Sure out if the traps have fine fluffy sand. My home course most of the time I can play with 7 clubs as long as I have my 7 wood among those clubs. For me just depends on the course and wind conditions. Lots of times on courses with forced carry approaches I will slip the 9 wood in for those 150 160 shots because I can hit it higher than I can a 5 or 6 iron. 12 clubs as SOP for me leaves a lot of room for certain courses to modify my set up. I have also been known to slip a persimmon driver in for some lay up Par 4s or long ( over 200 yards) Par 3s and I have been known to hit a persimmon driver off the deck at times Because I play the vast majority of my golf on our own club's course, my bag doesn't fluctuate as much as Stu's, although it probably would if I got around a bit more as I may have in days past. A constant 14 can work if you're on one track. I only coordinate ten clubs as the loft progression of a set, anyway. Four clubs--the driver, driving iron, greenside finesse wedge, and putter-- are shot-specific, add-on utility clubs. They could be dropped into any set other than the one that they're in. They don't have to be synched, loftwise, with anything else. I'm not one who goes with set loft/distance progressions from driver to lob wedge. I don't play that way. I'm ok with special clubs for specific shots. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
