What’s your best club?


Recommended Posts

Simple. What’s the single club you rely on most? Not necessarily the one you use the most, could be the one that you need score. Give details: OEM, model, specs, shaft, etc. Why is it so good?

For me, I can’t decide between these two:

1. Ping G400 4Hy 22° Aldila NV 2KXV Green 85H: reliable tee club, rescue, approaches, probably could use around the green or to putt if I needed to.

2. Cleveland RTX Zipcore SW 56.10 DG Spinner (stock): tested for WRX last year and never left the bag, really upped my sand game, gets me home on almost every hole I play.

The one I am about to buy. 😅

The eraser has really helped lower your scores.

Interesting to see a couple of "S-Grind" references. My SM7 54-S was my all-time favorite for chipping. I'm in the process of switching back to Vokeys and am debating between the S grind and the D gri

SM8 54° S Grind - PX LZ 6.5 

 

Historically, I’ve been a really terrible wedge player inside 100yds for a 6 handicap. Not sure if my swing and this grind just fit well together, but I’ve been throwing darts on anything 110 or closer. It was always gutting being inside 100 yards on a par 4 and making bogey.

Nice! I always liked the S grind.  (K grind…different story.)

Anyway, current favorite is MP20 HMB 4 iron with Ventus Blue 9x HB shaft. This club is magic. I can do anything with it. It allowed me to pull my 5 iron so I could add a wood and still keep four wedges in the bag.

So far it depends on the day. Today I was hitting my best 5 wood shots. Some days it's my wedges. It's never my driver, but I've been fairway or first cut last 2 rounds, so look out.

 

A club I've been able to count on most is my 7 iron. It's that sweet spot.

It's a tie between two clubs:

 

image.png.d9c94739f74e7cb25412d45120df26fd.png

  • Rogue 7W: 21° loft, PX EvenFlow Green 5.5-R / 65 gram shaft.  Although shaft is a bit heavier than driver or 4W, it has excellent balance and really jumps through the ball. Great for getting ball out of medium rough, and with fade can hold green on approaches and long par 3 holes. Also can find fairway on certain tight landing areas. Happy mix: mid-high shot that does not balloon.
  • CB Pro Tungsten 7i: 34°, KBS Tour 90 R-flex, about 98 grams, with 3 grams lead tape 2" below grip on underside of shaft. I have lead tape on 7, 8 and 9i to make sure I get good hand drop on downswing. This is numbered iron that gives me most confidence on full shots, has delivered several approaches for birdies. Also, it's my chip-and-run club. Had used 8i, but tungsten sole weight tended to pop ball up on occasion. 7i gives much smoother rollout, and I can use "engage the bounce" sweep chip, same sole skim as with wedges.

On occasion my driver has been my favorite club, but it's been iffy this season and I'm trying different tune-up settings to get it back.

What's In The Bag (Summary as of October 2020)

 

Driver:  Tour Edge EXS 10.5°, weights neutral   ||  FWs:  Calla Rogue 4W + 7W

Hybrid:  Calla Big Bertha OS 4H at 22°  ||  Irons:  Tour Edge CB Pro Tungsten 4i-9i

Wedges*:  Calla MD3: 48°... MD4: 54°, 58° ||  Putter: Ping Sigma G Tyne (face-balanced) + Evnroll Gravity Grip

Ball: Calla SuperHot (Orange preferred)  ||  Bag: Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag

For details see:  Pending (need protocol to embed file list).

     * MD4 54°/10 S-Grind replaced MD3 54°/12 W-Grind.

The only club I'm reasonably competent with is the putter. Most days.

 

But probably more in keeping with the spirit of the thread I'd say I absolutely must have a Taylormade M4-or-later driver in order to play anything close to my best golf. It could be an M4, M6, SIM MAX, probably a SIM2 MAX (although I haven't tried one) but hitting any other driver is just wasting strokes.

Toss up right now between:

M1A Machine Converter Putter - Has been solid since I ordered it 9 years ago. I try not to cheat on it, and it's been good to me.

Gapr lo 3i/hy - Stock stiff kbs shaft. Cranked open as far as it'll go and goes straight to a baby fade everytime. Been great off the tee in a year when driver is everywhere for me.

Tough call. If it’s the club that I have a ton of confidence in, the one that produces the biggest smile, it’s got to be my 20* Adams super 9031 proto hybrid. 
 

if it’s a club that I am best with, it’s got to be my 51* (52 bent to 51*)Gap wedge with full shots. It’s a Mizuno MP-R from 2006 or so with a Modus 105s shaft and 6* of bounce (I’ve bought a few over the years in good condition online)

Srixon ZX7 AW Recoil 95R - good for anything from 1-105 yards, confidence inspiring at address

Cobra F9 3H Devotion 8S - can hit it out of most any lie, great for punching out under trees, doesn't default left

Lately, it's been any of my Vokey wedges on 3/4 - full shots:

 

50 degree SM6, F Grind

54 degree SM6, M Grind 

58 degree SM5, M Grind

 

I've become a really good wedge player, and feel like I can get up and down from anywhere. If only I could get my driver to work consistently...
