Which club in your bag is irreplaceable?
« on: September 28, 2006, 01:02:04 PM »

This equipment section is pretty dull.  Here's a question for you guys.

The basic question is "Which club in your bag is irreplaceable", but I'll phrase it like this... Say your caddie drops your bag into a lake (or your partner drives into one), and you only have time to save one club before the rest sink forever.  Which one do you save?

(Pretend the lake is one of those "bottomless" ones and your gear cannot be recovered.  Also, ignore saving things like your wallet, cellphone, partner, lucky headcover, etc.  This is all about the clubs.)


My answer: I'd be tempted to save my putter because I lurve it so much, but I'd save my lob wedge.  Even though its lifespan probably isn't as long (grooves/mill marks), it took me a long time to find it, and it would be tough to replace. It's a junky 64* Golden Bear Bearclaw I found in Play it Again Sports, but it's freakin' unskullable.  I can be tempted by new putters, but that wedge is irrepleacable.

Wishon 321LI 4 hybrid. Sets up more "iron like" than any hybrid I've tried. The feel when you've pured one is un-freakin-believable. Great from the tee, fairway, deep rough, fairway bunkers, long greenside chips, hell I could probably putt with it too.

Sadly it doesn't happen as frequently as I'd like.

I have a Goldenbear Bearclaw sandy and it's definately a main stay in my bag.

Good to see you here, 360flip.

That's cool that you're still using the bearclaw.  I remember after I first bought mine I was blown away by it and searched the msgboards to see if anyone had written anything about it.  I think you mentioned it on GEA back then (quite some time ago).

The feel is surprisingly soft and the mill marks are deep!

While I don't consider any of them irreplaceable, my Hogan Colonial 56* is my go to club right now.  If it was lost, I'd replace it with the same thing - not sure I can say that about the rest of my clubs - maybe my putter too.

Bruce *8==>*inson fences, so you're in good company. He can also fly a 757. Is there anything he can't do?
