***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION***IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT***ATTENTION

Last year, in an effort to improve the capability of our forums, we switched to new software. We expected tremendous scalability and rapid customization that would significantly improve each Member's experience across multiple devices and integrate flawlessly with social media platforms.

Unfortunately, after a significant capital expense, we have decided that the length of time and the additional cost to reach our goals make this enterprise untenable.

Thus, we have made the difficult decision to transition the forums to our original software platform. We’re excited that, in the nearly two years since we began the process of our most recent switch, our original platform has been upgraded significantly, and we are confident that the reversion will not only provide the stability that we desperately needed prior to our last move but will also return to the Membership the high level of customization that made our online community so great. We have also added technical resources to the GolfWRX staff that will allow us to build custom modules and modifications that we are confident will take the forums to the next level.

We remain the world's largest online golf community, and we still hold true to our core values and mission statement as written in 2005. Bearing both of those elements in mind, being the best and offering our Members a platform that is world-class are both requirements, not options, and it is that spirit that has motivated this decision.

So, please pardon our mess over the next five days or so while we transition the forums.

A few important notes: Current content will be accessible during that time, but the forums will be READ ONLY, and you will not be able to start new threads or reply to posts. Personal Messaging is enabled but PMs sent/received from the time the board was frozen will not carry over. We know this is inconvenient, and we apologize, and we greatly appreciate GolfWRXers bearing with us through the transition.

We are very excited about starting this next chapter for GolfWRX and getting back to the high-quality Member experience we all expect as soon as possible.

Starting a new adventure . . . Minimalist Golf

    I think you'll be fine, it's really only minimalist by golfwrx standards <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /><br />
    <br />
    I play most of my early golf with 3,5,7,9 3w, driver, putter as a 'full' set.<br />
    <br />
    I do a 3 club challenge a couple times a year, that's minimal.<br />
    <br />
    Have fun either way, that's all the matters.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    We did a 3,2,1 tournament in our Game Improvement class played 3 rounds taking out 1 club each round was a hole lot of fun but playing 6800 yards with nothing but a 7 iron was pretty difficult. What is your 3 club set up?<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    3W, 7I, Wedge.<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Nice I went 3 iron, 7 iron, 56 Degree Wedge.<br />
    <br />
    The guy that one went 7 iron, Sand Wedge and putter. It was really interesting playing with him and watching thin 7 irons 220 plus off the tee.

    Tons of options, all make you think, all are fun.<br />
    <br />
    I can putt with a 3w better than I can wedge a 7i and I hit a 7i reliably anywhere between 100y and 200y. Pretty much covers most of the bases. Most guys think they must have at least a putter, big mistake more often than not but you never know. <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    So what is the minimum number of clubs that you would play? and whats the set up look like, I am intrigued by the no putter idea

    I think I would go with 4w, 5i, 8i, SW, Putter. Could probably leave the SW out if there was a four club limit. With a three club limit I would go 4w, 7i, putter.

    Ok so all of this talk of less than 7 clubs has me even more intrigued. So I am wondering what you would play given the following club limit (Ive included my thoughts)<br />
    <br />
    7 Clubs<br />
    <br />
    4 wood, 4 iron, 6 iron, 8 iron, PW, Sand Wedge, Putter<br />
    <br />
    5 clubs (6 just seems like a weird number to me)<br />
    <br />
    4 wood, 4 iron, 8 iron, Sand Wedge, Putter<br />
    <br />
    3 Clubs<br />
    <br />
    4 iron, 8 iron and Sand Wedge<br />
    <br />
    1 Club<br />
    <br />
    Old reliable 7 iron<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    Lets hear what wild and wonderful set ups the WRX community can come up with

    For like a realistic Sunday carry bag? <br />
    <br />
    Hmm, I think I'd go 3w, Putter, Wedge....then I could probably be happy with 4,6,8 or maybe 3,6,9 ?

    In my eyes putter is just too important to take out of the bag. It is the only clubs that you will use an all 18 holes (barring a hole out). Interested in people putting with wedges but I think if you are truly trying to shoot the lowest score you can with the fewest clubs putter has got to be in there

    I will do this at least 6 - 10 times a year. I just pull out every other club and there is my 7 clubs. I like to walk and carry the bag is nice and light like this.<br />
    <br />
    It really does force you to be creative and not so perfectionistic. I also leave my range finder in the car as well. That is the single hardest piece of equipment to do without. But pacing off is easy and **** I never have the correct club in my hand so it is all good. Scores not do suffer at all.

    people would play better, and swing more within themselves, if they had less clubs in the bag imo. you have to use feel to get the ball the right distance because of the gaps, and that promotes smooth swings, and smooth swings promote better technique... and it all just snowballs into better scores. Honestly, it's amazing.

    Guess I don't see the point in this "minimalist" setup. Is it to reduce weight? To speed up play? Just to say I shot sub 80 with 5 clubs ? Etc? I think this came is tough enough with 14. Lol Heck i would love to carry 16 If I was allowed. I'd also throw in a thriver type club for tee only shots and a 64* wedge<br />
    <br />
    <br />
    It used to be called "taking fewer clubs and having fun", until some golf hipsters wanted to attach a moniker to it for cachet value.<br />
    <br />
    For the record I take fewer clubs when playing a late afternoon 9 and want to lighten the load when carrying and other times to work on knock down shots and the like, there is no need to have the extra clubs for making full shots.

    I picked up an Ogio Sunday bag this year, and usually take driver, 21 degree hybrid, 6, 8, gw, lw , putter. Found my scores were pretty similar to full bag, and it makes club selection really easy.

    It only counts as minimalist if you're barefoot. Beginners are allowed to wear moccasins.

    Used to play barefoot all the time up at the small mom and pop course I played all the time. It seems to get some funny looks around high end public courses and just straight up kicked off alot of private clubs. I am thinking of trying out Vibrams this season becasue I want to get as close to that bare foot feeling as I can. Do you play barefoot?

    Today: driver, 3-wood, 5-wood, 4-hybrid, 6-iron, 8-iron, PW, SW, putter.<br />
    <br />
    It was cold, so I definitely needed to walk and carry. But here is the thing - I played great and didn't miss the clubs that I left in the car. I play with a limited set most of the time, and being able to take something off a full swing is part of playing good golf, in my humble opinion.<br />
    <br />
    I am playing with a set up like this all the time. As a 7-handicap, it is all that I need, and it is just plain easier. Plus, I need the exercise.

    Push 14 for me. Fast. All my clubs I need per the rules. Bag stable and at the ready. With a drink holder. I love it.<br />
    I dig the improvisation aspect of minimalist golf, but even with all the acutrements at your disposal with 14, a round will usually have you improvising no matter what a few times.

    I have been playing with a 'smaller' set for the last yr. 3w, 5-pw, 56*, putter. Same scores as 14 clubs. Lighter to carry and on the wallet. <img src='http://www.golfwrx.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smilie_ping.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':smilie_ping:' />

    Do you think that there is anymore clubs you could take out of the bag while still maintaining your scores?

    I LOVE doing this... and wish I would do it more but I sometimes feel I owe it to my other clubs and my big Hoofer bag to take them out on the course. I walk with 14 clubs all the time but I REALLY enjoy the fun of a Sunday bag and 1/2 a set of clubs.<br />
    <br />
    I usually carry a driver, 7w, 6h, 9, and some wedges and putter. I've got the bag set for my next walk as 3w, 6h, 7,8,9,w,uw, putter... basically left overs after getting some new clubs this year.<br />
    <br />
    A nice walk with a Ping Moonlite and a handful of clubs, tees, and balls is a great way to golf. Easy to carry in the car when I'm away on work too.

    It only counts as minimalist if you're barefoot. Beginners are allowed to wear moccasins.<br />

    Used to play barefoot all the time up at the small mom and pop course I played all the time. It seems to get some funny looks around high end public courses and just straight up kicked off alot of private clubs. I am thinking of trying out Vibrams this season becasue I want to get as close to that bare foot feeling as I can. Do you play barefoot?<br />

    Naw. I was just being facetious. I find the lower the better though. I go with flatish spikeless shoes and much prefer it to spikes.

    I am a big fan of minimalist golf and have been shedding clubs over the past few years. I am currently at 9 clubs and my scores have not suffered at all, in fact I am a couple of strokes better than my past average though I don't keep an official handicap. <br />
    <br />
    I just know that I am confident with every club in the bag and that makes a huge difference when standing over a shot.<br />
    <br />
    I think I could go down to 7 or 8 clubs and be just fine, but 9 fit comfortably in the bag and walking and carrying for 18 holes is no problem, so going with fewer would be just to prove an unnecessary point!<br />
    <br />
    MY WITB is fairly up to date. That has the max clubs I am currently carrying.....

    Guess I don't see the point in this "minimalist" setup. Is it to reduce weight? To speed up play? Just to say I shot sub 80 with 5 clubs ? Etc? I think this came is tough enough with 14. Lol Heck i would love to carry 16 If I was allowed. I'd also throw in a thriver type club for tee only shots and a 64* wedge<br />

    I played yesterday with driver, 3-wood, 5-wood, 4-hybrid, 6, 8-iron, PW, SW, putter in a Swift-X carry bag. Played just fine, shot my usual score. Golf is walking, not riding in a cart. Club selection for second shots, third on par 5's, was super easy. I used my eye and yardage markers to figure out club selection. It was easy to play fast.<br />
    <br />
    In my humble opinion, most golfers have far too many clubs for their ability level. They over-think shots and club selection. Play is slow, and since they ride in carts, they get little exercise. We are a sedentary, self-indulgent generation.

    I have a Ping K15 6 hybrid. I grabbed a set of Rapture V2 irons off a friend and they stopped at a 7 iron. Picked up the 6 hybrid just to carry on the set since buying an actually V2 6 iron was almost as much. It's been one of my favourite clubs ever since. It's in the sunday bag and in my Hoofer I carry a i20 6 iron and then a K15 5 hybrid.<br />
    <br />
    In true GolfWRX fashion tho I want to try out the G25 hybrid and perhaps change the Tour-S wedges from 52,56,60,64 to just 54 and 58.
