    910D2 10.5 driver (D3) 'Ilima 61g regular 913F 13.5 fairway (D3) Diamana M+ 60g R 913H 19, 24, 27 hybrids (D3, D3, A3) Diamana S+ 70g R iWin single length hybrid 38* (marked as 9) with 37.5" TT steel shaft. AP2 6-8 irons Project X Rifle 5.5 RM21 42* (9 iron replacement) SM6 50-08 (bent to 48*) SM7 56-08M MD3 64/8 White Ice putter.

    So who says you need 1-3-5 woods, 4-PW, 52-56-60 and putter?

    The 38 hybrid hits 150 yards. It is handy in some situations where it calls for 6-8 irons. Kind of like LT's "6 wood" thing of the 1970s.

    42* thru 64 are wedgeflex.

    There are even some pros that only carry a 6 iron as their longest iron. Amateur golfers run the gamut. Additional hybrids and fairways can improve the game if long irons are hard to hit or control.

    I believe Steve Stricker uses a 27H. I've read that a couple LPGA carry 11 woods (including the lanky Hawaiian who did a stint on the PGA).

    I remember in my caddy days, a couple players who had bags of mostly fairway woods. Highest iron was an 8. My stepmother had the same setup and then later on substituded hybrids (had a Cobra 7/32).

    Me: I'm more comfortable with a 27H and strong 7 iron. The 19H gets the same distance as my 7 wood and is easier to hit off tight lies. I recently changed out my AP2 8 iron for an Apex Plus same shaft and the latter gets 5 more yards, plus it is easier to hit off a bad lie. The AP2 7 iron, on the other hand, gets the same distance as my Apex Plus 6. I get only 5 more yards with the 24H vs the 27.

    Here it is. I put the AP2 8 iron back after some adjustment. I came back to using a 30H in place of a 6 iron. I took out the 24H because it gets the same exact distance as the 27 (I just plain hit the 27H better). The 17F was just added today.

    It’s a funny old game we play,
    What works for some,
    might not work for others.

    Each to there own,
    Play and enjoy your own game I say. ️‍♂️

    I've gone more "conventional" except for a mixed bag of irons. The 42* is a 9 iron equivalent with WedgeFlex. Would be nice if Titleist made 64* wedges with the T grind again.

  8. Certainly up to you to decide what works for you... as you obviously have.

    I wholeheartedly agree about the 64* wedge - I'd be first in the queue if they re-introduced that in Vokey.
    I've got a copper 64* TM in the garage which goes in and out of my bag on a regular basis.
    I can actually control the spin with that so much better than a 60* spin mill.

    Streamlined and optimized. Shot 41 at Riverwalk teeing off with the 3 wood despite two double bogeys and a blocked tee shot on the last hole.
