What's The Shortest Amount of Time You've Played a Club?

I was thinking about my setup and how frequently I make adjustments due to the course I'm playing or conditions or just plain old "not feeling it" with a club (usually putter). And then it hit me...What's the shortest amount of time a club has stayed in your bag?



For me, I played 9 holes with a driver and then it got bounced when I drove past the parking lot. I know I know...it's against the rules to swap clubs but I was goofing around with my buddies and nobody cared. Of the 9 holes, 2 were par 3's so now we're down to 7 tee shots. 2 of the remaining 7 were shorter par 4's where I didn't pull driver so now I'm down to 5 tee shots with this thing and then it got the hook like a pitcher throwing junk and getting shelled to the point where he's getting whiplash from watching the ball zip over the fence.



I was missing left and right with this thing! And what killed me was that I had so much faith that this would be "the one" for my bag for at least a season. It was an R7 425 with an Aldila Voodoo X flex shaft (in case anyone cared). It was just pure trash for me...



Anyone else care to vent about their shortest lived club?

    1a - Played nine holes with a Ping Specify putter, but it felt like a brick, so I switched at the turn, and sold that putter immediately.

    1b - Surprisingly, a TM r7 SuperQuad TP driver. Played it for nine holes, and just couldn't make it work. Grabbed my trusty original r7 TP at the turn, drove the ball great on the back nine, never looked back.

    Played 2 holes with a set of new forged Srixon irons.



    Long story short........Got the new set and was very excited. They were beautiful. Took them to a guy who turned out to be an IDIOT to get them bent to my specs. He bent the whole set 2* the opposite direction of what he was supposed to. Then in trying to get them where they were supposed to be he bent them 4* the opposite direction. In doing so he snapped the hozzle off of the 7-iron. Then out of fear he sent the set to Srixon for them to fix his screw up and to replace the 7-iron he'd broken. Total fiasco and it was 2-months into the season before I got them back. When I got them back the hozzles were all marred up and wonky. Took them out on the course. Every time I looked down and saw the wonky screwed up hozzles I got pissed off. Quit after two holes. Decided there would be no way I could play with these clubs given the ordeal and the still visible damage to the hozzles. Dumped them on eBay. Went back to my old set.

    I brought an old 1-iron out of retirement about 4 years ago, just to see if I could hit it. I think it lasted maybe 2 rounds.

    Ya sometimes when they're blowing out brand new irons at $50 something, there is a reason why image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    About 10 swings with a shaft that I bought to try out. As for an entire club, I think a Cleveland RTX 3 gap wedge lasted about 3 rounds. Club looked a little too big, bit of offset and hosel seemed very long. Visually displeasing.

    an RBZ 3h . went to the range one morning and thought it would be OK.



    duffed three straight approach shots on the front nine and never touched it again.

    Maybe 8-9 years ago I had some internet offer for a callaway 4 wood a few years ago for like 30 bucks. Figured I had nothing to loose.



    Shaft was a wet noodle. Hit it twice on the range, and maybe 2 more times on the course, and it was a giant hook machine. Still sitting in the "extras" bag in the basement.

    I bought a set of irons on ebay I thought would be great, went to the range after 1/2 a bucket the best I could do was a hot topped shot. Went right to Nevada Bob's and swapped them.

    One round wonders, Ping I20 irons with Project X shafts that I was so excited about, never seen a set of irons spin so much and lost about 2 club lengths. Also some Callaway MD3 wedges, could not get my sm4's back in the bag quick enough.

    On course, a 2 ball putter, lasted 9 holes. I think I had four 4 putts.



    I bought a 3 wood on eBay a few years back, hit it 5 times on the range, hated it. Sold it the next day. About a week later I got a message from the buyer claiming it was a fake as the face had collapsed. Had to refund the full amount ��

    ... I hit the original Ping LS great at the pga show. Crazy consistent and it didn't sound too bad with a million people around me making so much noise. But first round on the course it sounded like a tin can EXPLODING and I really hated it right from the start. Figured I would give it chance for the rest of the round but sprayed it all over the place and the sound never got better. Thankfully there was a Love Fest here at WRX so I sold it in a couple hours in the classifieds.

    Callaway Epic SZ.



    9 holes and 4 shots.



    Showed up for a quick 9 holes at a course we rarely play at. They had an Epic SZ in the proshop very cheap and I couldn't resist. The sound I didn't like but could probably have lived with. The fade bias I was neither here nor there on. The way it felt was terrible. I honestly struggled to tell where on the face I'd hit it.
