it depends on what you want to use the time for

No you are not being rude or off hand 

All I'm saying is if you can play with clubs missing why do you revert back to a full bag........................Hey hold on you could save a few quid on clubs if you don't need them all :D

The game is hard enough as it is without handicapping myself even more with not having the right club in my bag 

The good thing about this forum is everyone has different opinions and that way it stays interesting


I know what you are saying & agree to a point - In the 'Winter Bag' thread I mentioned that I like playing with a light bag & about 7 clubs, but this is only when I am prevented from using my trolley in extreme winter conditions - I would rather have my whole set with me but can't carry a full set due to a back injury - It surprises me how well you can score with only half your clubs - When you have to play a knock-down 7 iron instead of a full 8 iron I think you concentrate harder than when you just pull the 'right' club
To take this to the extreme level, in my last club we used to have a '3x clubs & a putter' comp & it would always be won with better than par

We have that 3+p comp only it happend between Christmas and New year and involves a certain amount of consumption "in the spirit of the season" for 3 putting or missed fairway, but in truth it contributes little to the improvement of the game and no one cares about the score at the end...

"It surprises me how well you can score with only half your clubs"

Better than a full set ???

If yes then you will save hundreds on new clubs :lol:

Just my 2c worth - we dont play golf in the same conditions all the time (ie wind), sometimes we are playing under trees and sometimes we are 'inbetween' clubs or playing knock down shots. We need to be shot-makers not just automatons.

Playing a half set of clubs teaches you to be a shot maker, which arguably makes golf more fun. look at several ballasteros. Learnt on 3 clubs and was one of the best shot-makers ever.

If you never practice these shots you won't be able to play them when you need to. Give it a go.

So your under a tree and you need a knock down 6 iron shot but you left it at home so in that case it would be better to practice with a full bag :D

If you was going on a job you needed all your spanners for you wouldn't leave half of them at home in case you needed a certain size 

Stop making the game harder than what it is .................
