Have been contemplating this change for a bit now. And having spent some time with my launch monitor has all but confirmed, something needs to be done. At least I think so...

Learning that I hit my 2i “5w” and 4h within a yard or two of one another. 215-220. In my head, I should be hitting a 5w a little further. Or maybe my 4h a little less?!?!?! Either way, it’s got me searching for an answer!

My problem lately is I "can't hit" my 3-wood or 3 hybrid.
On a bit of a whim, kind of an experiment, I’ve put my 3w in timeout for a little while. Sorta the same reasons, just can’t hit it! To be honest, not missing it, but I’ve now opened this can of worms...

This game is a head scratcher at times!

I tend to ignore #'s on clubs anymore, because the lofts, shaft length, and other stuff varies so much from Make and Model.

Although to your question for ideas. I bought fairway woods with adjustable loft and lies (Titleist 917F) for this reason. I carry a 4w that is adjusted to midway between their 4w and 5w. If I ever upgrade my hybrids I will buy adjustable as well.

Yep! Don't carry an actual 3 wood. Only fairway wood is a 5 wood, with the loft turned stronger to a 4 wood. Seems to work. As good as I've been hitting the TE driver, about to leave the Mini 1.5 at home. But, don't seem to have any unnecessary gaps.

I love this approach as well. In the last year and a half or little more. I’ve had a bit of an awakening with my golf game and life.

In terms of my game, the only numbers I concern myself with are lofts on the clubs and the yardages on the PRGR screen. Results are what matter. Current setup is a 915H set at 18* I call it my 5w, the 4h is an Adams idea 21*... I can get more than 220 outta the 915, but obviously accuracy suffers. The max for the Adams is 220, but i’m surprised by it’s accuracy!!

I’d like to find something at 16* and see where it goes, my other issue is being a leftie. Proving harder to find than I thought!

As I sit, sipping coffee and looking at more used clubs online... I realize the big 4-0 is creeping closer into the foreground of my future. Now I'm really starting to lean towards getting myself fit for clubs, like properly!

November will see me hit 76. 5th year on the Board of Directors at the club. One more year and I'm done. Was talking to someone the other day and figured I will be 78 when I leave the Board. That sounds REALLY old!!!

Looking for candidates to run for the Board in November this year. Will have 4 open spots. Need some young blood. Good mix right now. But, three of the four leaving are in their 40's. Hope we can see some in that age range... or younger get elected. Also losing one of our lady board members. She's been awesome. Only serving one 3-year term. Not running for reelection due to family issues. Need another lady.
One of the problems is you pretty well commit to at least 24 meetings during the year... 2 per month. With young families, this can become a burden for younger folk. Us old coots have lots of time to attend meetings, but we ain't gonna be around long term. Need that younger blood to keep their generation interested and active.
