Why do so many people have so called "back up" sets of clubs? Not talking about the guy that has a couple sets of irons and 6 putters. I'm talking about the people that have complete sets of the latest and greatest!! I read earlier about a guy who bought a new Ping G400 as a back up driver??? I don't get?? I don't understand the guys that have a home set and a set in florida(or the lakes) either??? I understand it's mostly out of convenience,  but how do you expect to play your best golf with a back up set instead of your daily gamers that you practice and play with regularly.  

I realize that the airlines lose clubs and people can slide right into their back up set, but come on? There are people on this great site that have just as much $ in a back up set as they do their 1st stringers! I've had clubs stolen and had to throw a set together before, but not a back up set.
Sorry for the rant, but even when I played golf for a living I didn't have a back up set!!!
Am I missing somthing?

My backup clubs even have backup clubs, you know, in case one set gets sick and it gets passed around. Hopefully the set in the closet or the one in the workshop won’t be infected. The garage is a damn cesspool.  Nothing is safe in there.

Probably different reasons. I think it's a valid question. I still have 3 sets, but that is just what I have accumulated over 40 years of golfing. Some people like to change out yearly and get a new set, that's fine with me, it's their money. If I had a home in say Michigan and a winter residence in Florida I would definitely have a set in both places. I generally can play equally well with different clubs as long as I have time to hit a few balls. Then there are the hoarders, they can never fulfill their desire to buy a new set. Counseling is their best choice. 😁

No offense, but why do you care what other people do with their money?
It was just a simple question? Sounds like you have a different set for every day of the week! I bet you are a real "player"!
It's nice to paint with a broad brush.  Again, why do you care what people do with their money?  BTW, I have one set and it's minimalist at that.

I don't care what people do with their money. I'm just curious as to why some people have 2 or more  of everything including the bag and # of tees in the bag! I love equipment just as much as the next guy, but for example 2 Taylormade M2 drivers w identical loft?? Are they afraid one of them is going to break before their Tuesday night league? Do they want an extra in case their gamer is stolen? I dont know? That's why I'm asking? I've never been in my local Golf Galaxy and thought...hmmm I really like the way this 3 wood sits....i think I will buy it as a "back up"!

As a minimalist golfer you have never wondered re same?

The question could be called valid, it's the OP"s accompanying  judgement and subsequent "it''s just a simple question!" indignation that's rubbing some the wrong way.

It's just the latest "why don't you do things the way I do?" thread.

Personally I have a pretty much identical set for a residence in NJ and family in Florida's house, so I don't have to continually pay to check a golf bag, and I don't like selling too much of my equipment, so it accumulates, and you just never know you may want to pull a club you played well with when another isn't making the cut.
Someone may also have sticky fingers at a course I'm not familiar with, car may get broken into at anytime as I usually have a bag in there.

*As for others, just like all hobbies...may have a passion for equipment. I see know problem with that at all, nor a problem with what they do with their money. We all have our passions, there are multiple members on this site who have $50-100k+ in putters, and other golf related gallery products.

**another thing to consider, not everyone on this site is buying from a big box store, lots of guys on WRX are tied into the industry in one way or another. So there are a lot of samples, demos, etc.

Competition makes things better. You have to let the #1 clubs  know that there is another hungry club out there and they can find themselves on the bench.

I have a set In Va (spring/summer) and a set in FL (fall/winter)........at least that's my excuse for being a total ho.  All my iron sets are 30 year old Eye 2 - so I'm an antique ho.

So why are you in the thread ?


Personally I don't understand the backup thing either, UNLESS he's a serious player that travels a lot for tournaments. A guy like that will go to length to have backups that are as close to exactly the same as the "originals".

I've never had a backup set or a backup driver. I do have some older clubs that I keep for a while and if I ever did have a driver stolen I could use an older one until I replaced the gamer.

But mostly when a club goes into the closet the only time it sees the light of day it again is when I get ready to pack it up to ship to someone else. LOL

My first set got stolen and I didnít have clubs to use for a while thatís reason A.

Reason B is im comfortable enough in my life and lucky that I am able to spend and tinker with golf clubs all year long. I enjoy trying clubs and flipping them here.

I like to leave a set in club storage and have a set in the basement.  First world problem not to want to drive 5 minutes to the club to get my sticks.  Could be after hours I guess.  They're easy to buy and hard to sell.  But, I lost the head of a hybrid warming up for a big tournament and swore I'd have a back up from then on out.

Not a word of a lie I had my car stolen as a junior a couple nights before an important tournament. Clubs, shoes and rain gear gone because I was too lazy to bring my stuff inside

I used a borrowed set of my dads and now that Iím an adult and can have a backup set in case something happens I can.

I love shipping my backup sticks ahead of me on holidays if something happens I donít really care too much.

I don't really get it either, but overall if it makes people happy it's better than doing cocaine or something.

I mean i love clubs. But i've never bought something thinking it would be a backup only. My "backup" sets are just clubs i own that at one point i thought i would use, and then found something i like better.

Buying something new to use as a backup when you already have something that works doesn't make sense to me....but i mean, in the grand scheme of things, it's not something to put too much thought into

I do it just in case my gamers are lost in transit or stolen...hasn't happened so far (knock on wood).  Till then, I'll keep accumulating more "backup replacements".

Not sure how you could have played golf for a living and not had a second set of clubs but stranger things I guess...

I've always had at least one set of backups. They're always an identical set so they are still the ones I play and practice with. Gear wears out, gets broken, gets lost, needs repairs and gets stolen. It would be like making a living with your car and driving around without a spare tire. To each his own.  :-)

I have 4 complete bags. Three regular playing sets and a set of 1963 MacGregors that I play on rare occasions.  Do I need them? No. But I like clubs. So, I get them when I find a great deal. As for having to get used to them when I change sets, there's no need. Having been a clubmaker since the early 80's, I just matched them all so they feel the same. No adjustment at all. Well, that is since I stopped using my Black Chrome MP14s. Damned offset screwed with my head every time I played them. BTW, they're going on the BST soon. Anyway, that's my deal. Don't know if it makes sense though, just the way I am.

Funny, an instructor friend of mine told me a story the other day...

He's teaching a lesson, student asks to hit his club.  Decides he likes it so much he would like a quote for a set.  Sends over a quote... Sure, I'll take 'em.  Ship me 8 sets, I like to leave a bag at each club I have a membership.

Perfect example(s)......my father-in-law just got back from a golf trip in Florida. They forgot to put his clubs (only set he has) on the plane. He had his club tournament 4 days later and had to borrow someone else's clubs because his were not back in time. I've also had 3 friends get their clubs stolen.

I personally don't have an extra set of irons currently, but do have an extra driver that was given to me. It's come in handy a few times when my Epic SZ cracked twice!  When I'm in the market for new irons I'll prob keep my Z565's because they were fit for me and I hit them great.  I'm not going to get a good return on them so why not keep as a backup for peace of mind?

I have extras but thinning it out .

I really see no need for backups , the used club market is massive and you can pick up anything you want in an instant .

I can run over to Roger Dunn on my lunch and build a complete bag for a few hundred bucks.
