I carry 9 clubs. Am I weird?


Recommended Posts

My theroy.
I only carry 9 clubs. What are you thoughts on this? It has seemed to help my scores.

Driver
7 Wood
6-PW
Sand Wedge
Putter

Takes care of everything I need. Driver goes 230......7 wood covers 170-190. 6 iron Goes about 165. My sand wedge is all I use around the greens and for pitches. This combination has served me well. If I dont carry hard to hit clubs.........I am not tempted to pull of low percent shots. This combo has gotten me down to a sigle diget handicap. As I was a 12-14 when I used 14.

That's essentially the same set I have now. I just put my 5 iron back in a round or two ago and have only used it the once on the course. I have a 4-hybrid instead of a 7-wood, which goes a 180-210 for me, b ut I don't hit it well that often, so I only use it off the tee on long par 3's now. Then I have a LW instead of a SW, but I'll be trading them soon anyways.

 

My reasoning is similar, I don't need the clubs I can't hit. I work on adding a club at a time back into my bag, by practicing with it (along with my others) at the range. Once I feel comfortable. It comes back in.

This is my Sunday bag, it had a Nike tour issue 410cc driver, Nike 4 wood, Nike pro combo 4, 6, 8, pw, sw and a Nike putter, I had been play this set for couple of year now, I had a lot of good scores with them, once had a 75 at Stonehouse, which is rank among the toughest in this area. I am just very comfortable with each club, I hit my driver around 260yds, anywhere around 205 to 225 for the 4 wood, 180 to 195yds for the 4 iron, 160 to 175yds for the 6 iron, 140 to 155yds for the 8 iron, 110 to 135 yds for the PW, it depend on I hit it firm or hit it easy, I really enjoy playing all kind of shots, it made it really funs.

The week before a tournament, I have two days set aside for practice and 9 holes. One 9 holes is played without my odd numbered irons (including GW). The other 9 holes is played without my even numbered irons (including PW). My real practice round, later in the week, is back with the full set...mostly to get green speed down, but I always like to re-remember "shotmaking" before competitive rounds.

Over the last year I've played most of my rounds with only 7 clubs(3W, 3H, 5,7,9,GW & putter) and can honestly say my scores haven't suffered. The course I play are around 6,500 yards so I don't really get punished for not having a driver. I am planning on adding a SW.

I know I'm not going to shoot any "career" rounds with this set up, but I'm still able to play well enough and my energy level after a round is much better.

 

I'm glad to hear other people play with a similar set up. When I go to the course a lot of people think I just started playing because of my set up.

 

If I ever get the opportunity to practice on a regular basis again I'll go back to 14 clubs, but for now it's 8.
