so i was gifted some clubs. they have the 2iron to 9 iron with pw and sw as well. i recently picked up a good driver and a used 5 hybrid. i know not a lot of sets run the 2 iron, so im trying to figure out what clubs i am missing or need if i do plan on keeping/using the 2iron. do i need fairway drivers/hybrids?

    Dump the 2, 3 and 4 irons.
    Add a 3-wood, 3 hybrid and a 56 degree wedge.
    Then go practice your short game three times per week.

    Relly don't need anything else. However you might find it beneficial to have some other clubs. Typically people will have a wood of some sort and a hybrid or two because long irons are more difficult to hit. However, hit the clubs and base it off of that first. IMO of course.

    I guess it depends on how good you are.. but I would get rid of 2 and 3 iron..
    I would get a 3 hybrid and get rid of 5 hybrid. Get a 3wood, hybrid, and Gap Wedge.. You have a sandwedge, which should be 56 degrees..

    I actually enjoy hitting the 3. Practicing with the 2 iron might help perfect the mechanics as you’ve gotta be on it to hit. That’s said, I believe the other guys are right, and have already given the right advice. IMO.

    I agree with others to dump the 2 and 3 iron, replace it with 3wood and hybrid. But if you are hitting 2 and 3 irons well, you might as well keep using it. Have fun and enjoy it 😁

    You've got most of the bases covered, you could use a fairway wood and a lob wedge but they are definitely not clubs you really would miss just starting out. Like everyone else said, drop 2/3 iron and practice with what you have.

    First step is to decide (and be honest with yourself), am I playing for fun only a few times a month _or _am I looking to put some effort in, including lessons, and playing / practicing more than once a week?
    If its the former, then id suggest clubs that make the game a little easier (no 3 wood), a 5 or 7 wood, (no 4 iron) just your 5 hybrid and then the irons bellow that)
    If its the later, then a 3 wood, either a 5 wood or 3 hybrid (depending on if you find it easier to hit your woods or your irons) and also a 4 hybrid.

    What wedges you carry is a very personal thing and can only be established after playing for a while in my opinion. A PW and SW is fine to start out with.

    Thought my bag was all set for the season but I'm 3 changes in since Christmas already... Dialing in favorable launch and spin / gapping numbers currently - max game improvement throughout as I don't get time to head out much...

    Can you tell us exactly what make and model of irons that you received?

    the gap wedge is what im trying to figure out what i need now. the PW is 47degrees while the SW is 56. should i try and grab a 52?

    I think you should go out and hit them for a round or two at a course you will play and see what kind of yardage gaps or issues that you run in to. Then change some clubs to fill what gaps you have yardage wise and say the ones you can't hit or just don't like to hit!
