I could drop my 3 wood, and my 60 out of the bag at any given time, and it wouldn't really hurt me. I don't play or practice enough to feel great about the 60, so it sees action about once every 3 rounds, if that. I only ever use the 3 wood to go after a par 5 in 2, which probably doesn't happen frequently enough and/or impact my score enough that it would really matter.
Could probably cut another 1-2 clubs with some rearranging, but that might start impacting things a little more.
I had a lot of fun going out last winter with 7 clubs to play rounds. Some days it felt like I had a bunch of full shots, and other days, everything felt like some kind of modified shot to get the right distance.

Nice! A fellow DHY 24* user! I still have mine from new.
Yeah, I could game 10 or 12 clubs easily. I don't think my scoring would change that much.

Thursday I played my first night of golf league with 9 clubs. I sold all three drivers, the mini-driver, both three woods, two of the hybrids, the extra gap and lob wedge annnnnd the extra putter.
My Titleist Sunday bag had 9 clubs: PING Anser 17 degree hybrid, 716MB's 5-PW, the SM6 58K @ 57 degrees and my Cameron Button Back Newport that I had the custom shop add a topline to...
Thankfully my team drew the front nine which is the shorter par 35 side that you can get away with not hitting driver. The second hole is a 460 yard par 4 that plays a little harder without a driver and the third hole is an easy, short 505 yard par 5 that you can really cut the corner of the dogleg with a well hit and placed drive. But other than those two holes you really don't lose much by hitting it in the fairway with a shorter club.
I actually played pretty well for the first round of the year and made a couple nice ~8 footers to save par on #2 and #4. I birdied the easy par 5 third hole hitting hybrid, hybrid into the front bunker and had an easy uphill lie bunker shot. I finished with 8 pars and a birdie to shoot (-1) 34. One of my playing partners is a guy that's been playing golf for 3-4 years now and takes it very seriously. Hes a former college athlete and super competitive and now that he takes golf seriously he is into every aspect of the game. He has very well fit clubs and every accessory known to man to shoot the lowest possible score. He was literally pissed that I shot 34 with 9 clubs in a pencil bag. We get along really well though so we joked about it for an hour on the 19th hole.
That will probably be my lowest round of the year... rusty, first round, 9 clubs and more than likely will be the best number I put up the whole season.
I have no idea what driver I'm gonna pick up next... I might just try to find the newest, nicest shape PING G20 I can find and reshaft it. My Anser 17 degree hybrid has been one of my best clubs over the past 5 years. I've also been in contact with Ari formerly of Scratch Golf now with National Custom Works where I'm gonna have Don White hand grind me a custom wedge in the ~53 degree range. I'm going to have him copy the original EYE2 SW sole and try to get the shape of the toe as high and as square as possible. I used an original stainless PING EYE2 SW for literally 10+ years of competitive golf... even when I used MP-14's and 690CB/MB combos I still kept the EYE2 in the bag because it was just so automatic for me and I used it for literally every single shot inside 100 yards. I'm hoping Ari & DW can re-create some magic for me. I love the Button Back putter so all I really need to find is a new driver and some kind of 3/4 iron replacement.
Didnít you have a lot of success with the 712U? Primarily the 4 iron? You could look for one of those or a TMB?
