I work in club repair and do a lot of regripping of full sets, so I see some interesting and boring setups. 

So who's carrying something different in their bag this year or has an unique/unusual setup. I.e. I don't carry any fairway woods and use a chipper.

I currently have two 3 woods in the bag. My old one is a TM Burner '07 that is supper spinny so its hard to get it past 210 carry. So it basically plays like a 5 wood.

A lefty I play with carries two drivers, and he switches back and forth all the time, often during a round. Seems nuts, but as long as he stays within the 14 club limit, his choice.

Another guy I play league with chips and putts left handed, but all other shots/clubs are right hand. First time I played with him I did a double take on #4, when I first noticed him chipping left handed! He’s the only player I’ve ever known with that WITB.

Met a guy last year and ended up playing a few rounds with him, as he's a co-worker of one of my regular playing partners. He's the same way - driver and irons all righty, then all short game is lefty.

I used to play with a guy that was right handed, but he putted left handed. He was a very good putter, but his ball striking lacked something.

I can sorta understand it. When needing strength or power, I’ll use my left hand/arm, but when it comes to finer control, I’ll opt for my right hand. That might be reason enough for some folks to switch club hands.

I take it he once had a bad experience with his ball landing by a tree.

Once was coaching against a kid who hit left handed and putted right handed. Was quite confused until I figured out what was going on.

I once played with a guy and his son (I was playing as a single) about 15yrs ago. On the 1st hole He lag putted up to about 2" and proclaimed "close enough" and picked up his ball. OK no Biggie.. 2nd hole about the same.. 3rd hole par 3 he sticks his approach about 3-4' away, a real nice shot.. walks up to the green grabs a putter drop the head into the Hole stretches the club out " inside the rubber, It's a birdie".. it was then i noticed his putter seemed awfully long.. I asked him about it, He said he carries 2 putters, in his regular game at Home (in Montana) they have a rule you do not have to putt if its inside the rubber of a putter, Kinda like the 2 club length rule so he had a putter made with a driver shaft in it so it was "legal" at 45" I think, but he could now pickup any putt about 10" further away.. He claimed he won a lot of money that way. I just laughed.. I thought it was pretty smart.. he is also the same guy that on the 4th hole Yelled "Montana Rules Whiz where ya is" Turned around and Pissed just 5 feet from the edge of the green.. Glad i was only playing 9.. Real classy guy...

About a year ago, I was paired with a guy who used an extremely short putter.  It had to be under 2'.  It made my back hurt just watching him putt.

Ancient, like 1950s or 60s, Don Martin bronze flat face Up-n-In chipper.  Pix avail on ebay, Ironfinder has a listing.  I use it on fringe and up to about 10 yards from fringe if not in deep rough.  Easier than trying the 60 degree for short chips, predictable roll out since there is not much backspin.  I also have a Stan Thompson Closup but like the Up-n-In better.  The Thompson has deep wide grooves and is useful for longer distances, like up to 20 yards.  Both club designers were southern Calif guys.  Thompson famous for the V bottom Ginty design. Martin made putters too.

And after my next injury time out is over, I have a pair of 3 woods:  one is a low profile, wider flat leading edge, for fairway.  The other will be my alternate driver, it has a more typical rounded bottom leading edge.  I am not very long, so a good drive still leaves me needing a 3 wood on many holes.  (Adams Speedline LP Low Profile, I am very comfortable with the look at address, and a Callaway Steelhead Xr)

I did this for years (played right, putted left) it was just a holdover from when I played hockey (lefty) but righty for every other sport.
