Forum Thread of the Day: “Which clubs will you never sell, and why?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from theothertwo, who asks fellow GolfWRX members to reveal the clubs they own that they will never sell, and their reason why. The thread contains a mix of modern and rarer clubs, with some great stories behind why they mean so much to our members.

  • MattyO1984: “Scotty Cameron Newport Tel3, Titleist 975D, Titleist 714CB’s – I got them from Paul Lawrie, so they are sticking. Titleist 990B 2 iron – a reminder of how hard I used to make golf by playing clubs that were impossible for me to hit well often enough.”
  • leo the lion: “Two Odyssey Dual Force Wedges – 52 and 56 – with stronomic inserts. Still the spiniest wedges I have ever used. Bettinardi QB8…………My mum passed away earlier this year, and her name was Betty. She was the ‘Queen Bee’ of the family. Just a reminder sitting in my bag of what a great Mum I had.”
  • JonT: “So true, my son bought me a used set of MP30’s many years back, and I loved them; went through a bad spell and sold them thinking I wasn’t up to the demands of hitting that sweet spot anymore. Bought them again this year, after eight years away, and I am in love again. Won’t sell them again.”
  • Tad: “Set of Srixon I701 tours, and an Odyssey White Ice #1 putter, All were In my little brother’s bag when he passed away seven years ago from Cancer. He was the one who got me into golf 26 years ago.”

    When I was 15 I fell in love with a putter in the pro shop of my home course. I convinced the pro to let me try the putter on the front nine. I went around in 12 putts and bought it at the turn. The putter was a Spalding “Cash-In” putter, the year was 1965 and it’s still the only putter I’ve ever needed. Every other aspect of the game has changed, but a comfortable putter is still your best friend on the course.

    I will never sell my 2015 Great Big Bertha woods with Kuro Kage 50 Tini shafts, my Callaway XR irons w/Speedstep 80 shafts, and my Titleist Vokey SM4 Oil Can wedges, along with my Scotty Cameron putter. Why, because I love the sound and feel of the woods and irons, and I also like the fade adjustability of the Driver, I love the look and spin of the wedges, and the putter is a keeper for the long term.

    My original Eye 2 sand wedge. It still has great stopping ability thanks to the square groves and gives me tons of confidence in both sand and flop shots.

Forum Thread of the Day: “3+ wedge users – the more, the merrier or certain wedge for certain shots?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from BetterAtBingo who has asked WRXers the merits of having 3+ wedges in their bag. Our members discuss what they feel is the optimal wedge set-up and how they decide on a specific wedge for a particular shot.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • gioguy21: “I carry a 47* PW (it’s apex MB, or a ‘set’ PW); 52/56/60* MD4’s. When playing, i actually use them for specific purposes mostly: PW and 52 are predominantly for full shots or longer pitch shots off fairways, 56 is used for inside 100y, pitches, chips, around the green and bunker shots, 60 is used for around the green in higher grass, or near-side bunker shots (where you have to get it up quickly) or when a lob shot is needed with some higher spin. Hope this helps. I carried a three wedge system (PW, 52, 59) for the entire year, and always felt like I needed something between the 52 and 59; specifically with spinny pitches/chips and bunker shots.”
  • lenman73: “I am similar to gioguy. I have 44, 50, 56, 60. The 44 and 50 are full shots. The 56 and 60 are for close range. For whatever reason, in my area elevated greens are the norm, so unless you miss short in the front, playing the low ball isn’t the best decision. It’s not always from the front either. So since I started playing 30 years ago and have lived in the same area, the aerial assault has always been my go-to game plan near the greens. So for me, it causes no confusion; it is lie and length-dependent. Anything within 10 yards of the green is my 60 and adjust from there.”
  • gwelfgulfer: “I don’t think that gapping at the bottom of the bag really means much as that is more for full swings. Shots under 100y usually aren’t ‘stock yardage’ full swings (obviously depends on individual yardages) and are likely going to be club manipulated swings (ball position, choke down, 3/4-1/2, flighted). I roll with a three wedge set up unless I have my i20’s in the bag (I just like the UW enough to carry it) as most of these sets have 47-48 degree PW’s, so going 54/58 or 53/58 isn’t much of an issue. Most greenside play is done with either my 53/54 as I prefer to get the ball rolling quicker and just read it all like a put. Bunker play is with either club as situation dictates.”
  • Warrior42111: “PW (45) Full shots – and some bump and run. 50 Full shots – and some bump and run. 56* anything inside 100. 62* short siding and I love it out of a bunker, can full swing and not worry about overshooting”
