Forum Thread of the Day: “What clubs in your bag are SAFE?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from Millhill88 who like most WRXers, loves to tinker with his bag set-up. However, Millhill88 does have some clubs in his bag that he won’t be taking out before the end of the year, and he asks fellow members which clubs are currently safe and won’t be removed from their bags any time soon.

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

  • sbjinx: “Spider X. I’m putting so well with this thing I stopped checking the putter forum lol”
  • eddiebigeddie: “I have several that have been safe for some time. My putter Odyssey Metal X Milled Versa #9Ht has been my club since it came out. My F6 Baffler has been automatic since it came out too when I pull the club I know exactly what’s about to happen. And so far my F9 I got this year has been the driver for me. Finally not struggling to get off the tee.”
  • philly2kuk: “Pretty much all of them currently. Sure I’m off to try a Scotty today, but I’ve putted lights out with my anser, my vokeys are safe, driver is safe, hybrid is 14 years old yet still in the bag, five wood is safe. The only question mark is my irons as they’re coming up on six years in the bag. I’m wondering if I’m leaving something on the table.”
  • mwink822: “Most of my bag is safe but for wedges. I may be adding either Cleveland RTX4 wedges or Vokeys in the near future. Not that the Mizunos have been bad, but they’re getting to that point in their life where replacement may be wise.”
  • shanx: “I have had the same pair of wedges forever (TM RAC Raw tour grooves copper). I got them off the infamous BSG back in the day, don’t see any reason to change them, other than the grooves are probably illegal. Everything else is subject to change.”

    Nothing really that safe in my bag. I like to switch it up a lot and see what is working for me at the moment.

    Got some special P750s that were built in the early stages that say Proto on the badge instead of P750 they’re a gem that won’t be leaving the bag anytime soon.

    My putter is driving me nuts! Just replaced my Bettinardi QB6 with an Odyssey White Hot XG8 w/Rosemark 1.52 grip (put same grip on QB6). If that doesn’t work I have 6 more putters waiting for their chance to win some skins!

    SIK Jo putter. Got it from Kenny Knox 7 years ago. It’s gnarled and bumped and scratches all over it but it’s the ideal putter for me.

    My 712 AP2’s are safe forever. My Rife (Evenroll) putter is safe even longer. New Vokeys to replace old Vokeys. TM Driver, fairway and hybrids…not so much.

What GolfWRXers are saying about the clubs they chip with

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing the clubs they like to use around the greens. WRXer ‘jomatty’ uses a 58-degree wedge for most shots around the green and asks fellow members if that’s an ‘amateur move’ or if it’s a default play for most players. Our members have their say.

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.

  • jholz: “I think the conventional wisdom is to use what works for you. Chipping is largely a matter of practice and comfort, and I think every player will have their own, personal preference. If you practice a ton with your 58* and can hit the shots you need with it – then more power to you. That being said, I find using a variety of clubs for chipping is beneficial for me. I assess every chip for the amount of green I have to work with, and how much crap I have to clear. Less green, more loft. Less crap and more green, lower loft. If it’s a generic green side chip with a bit of green to work with and a bit of crap to clear, I default to a mid-lofted wedge (I.e. a sand wedge), which for me is 54*. I would say I hit probably 75-80% of all chips with this club. If I have less green to work with, I will go up in loft to my 58*. If I have less crap to carry I will go down in loft perhaps using my 50*. Probably the most reliable shot in my bag is a little 9 iron chip from the fringe.”
  • demecca2: “I am the same as you. I pretty much use my 58 for every single shot unless I need to hit a bump shot into a hill. I would rather get really good with one club rather than just good with a bunch of clubs.”
  • nova6868: “Like several others have said, I do the bulk of my chipping and pitching with my 50 and 54. I only bring out the 58 if I need a chip with lots of spin, high pitch, or flop because I don’t have much green to work with. I just find the 50 and 54 to be more predictable in terms of my misses and the amount of roll out.”
  • aenemated: “My 52° pretty much exclusively. It’s just what I’ve always used for chipping going back to my high school days. Only time I’ll deviate is if it’s a really uphill lie.”
  • platgolf: “The 9 iron is my go-to for chipping. It has the right roll out to get it close.”
  • Sean2: “It depends on the situation. Anything from a 50º to a 62.”

What GolfWRXers are saying about the best anti-left hybrid for a sweeper

Published

on

In our forums, our members have been discussing anti-left hybrids and which ones work best for a sweeper of the ball. WRXer ‘Hougz79’ is considering Callaway’s Mavrik Pro, TaylorMade’s SIM and PXG’s Gen 2 – and our members have been sharing their thoughts in our forum.

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.

  • Orlandogolfguru: “Cally super hybrid is supposed to be anti-left.”
  • Golf64: “Ping G410 is best out there, IMO.”
  • Wardonnation: “Have had 6 since and finally got it back.. 915 Titleist hands down…”
  • Valtiel: “I think there are two main factors/categories for hybrid fitting and eliminating the left miss. 1) Weight and length. Most hybrids are too long and too light which further complicates trying to slot them in as iron replacements vs wood replacements. I think many peo -y reputation that hybrids have has far more to do with #1 above than any inherent CG bias as a lot of people feel. I think CG bias is still important, don’t get me wrong, but we are often told to treat our hybrids more like irons while off the rack they are setup too much fairway woods. Don’t be afraid to tinker with weight and length; it makes a world of difference.”
  • halfsumo: “I am a sweeper and have trouble with hybrids going left. Like you have had success with Apex. Titleist hybrids in the flat and open settings have worked pretty well for me. The weird thing about the Titleist are that the “player’s” version usually has a weird offset to it which I think looks like it wants to go left. I had the TS2, and it was pretty solid, probably shouldn’t have sold it. I had the SIM Max, and it was totally draw-biased for me. 100% due to the upright lie angle. I think that anyone that struggles hitting hybrids left there are two options: 1. Steer away from any hybrid with a fixed hosel that cannot be adjusted more flat if necessary. Hybrids with stock flatter lie angle like Apex, Mav Pro and Mizuno CLK can work if you get lucky. The only hybrids that I’d look at are Titleist, PXG and Ping because they can all be adjusted flatter and more open and Titleist and PXG can also adjust the weights toward the toe. 2. If you really like a fixed hosel head, get fit and see if you can try shorter and heavier shafts. Something 90-100+ grams and like .5″ to 1.5″ shorter than stock. If it works, have it built and swing weighted properly. I like the looks of the Mav Pro, Super Hybrid and Epic Flash hybrids which are all supposed to be pretty good at being anti-left, but I have a PXG Gen 2 on order because of the adjustability (and sale price).”
