The club you hated the most in your entire golfing career
« on: January 24, 2008, 03:21:32 PM »

Never seen this topic mention before Smiley

Please tell us the single club you hated the most, the reason and the consequence of the club.

For me it would be the Titleist Spin Milled I got.

I was looking for a wedge that will give me some extra check, with softer feel and has a bounce that's versatile for me to work on most of the surface.

Long story short, it doesn't spin much better than my previous Cleveland 900, harsh impact on both sweet sport or off center, the bounce is okay thu.

Anyway, just before I am going to trade it (or snap it) it got stolen from my car.

Golfsmith Black Box driver for me.  I really wanted to like this head because it's gloss black and Darth-Vaderish.

But I hated the sound.  It made a loud, unpleasant sound and people would turn and look at me at the range.  Even when I hit it well, it sounded like a mi*feces*/clank.  That didn't stop me from trying several shafts with it, though.

I guess for me the easiest way to answer this is to simply say "The Driver".

I have had so many, and it's not particular one.

The reason it's the most hated?  Not because I can't "hit" a driver, but if you total my golf career, and look for a club that I have not been able to rely on, that would be it.

Some generic steel 5-wood with a no-name steel shaft.  Bought the driver and 5W from a discount golf place to fill out the bag.  Hated both.  The 5W had grooves so sharp it would leave parallel cuts in the ball's cover.  I had a little slice then, and this club always had a HUGE slice.

One day, after hitting three straight tee shots with it on #18, all sailing far right into the fence guarding the 18th from the driving range, the shaft was snapped over my knee.  A couple seconds later, the pieces flew over the row of hedges and into the adjacent lake.  Good riddance.

(It remains the only club I ever broke in anger.  Disgusted with my shot, I once dropped a LW in my follow-through, didn't have my balance (side slope), had to take a step ... and stepped on it, bending the shaft.)

If it helps, after I threw the offending club pieces into the lake, I did not finger-point at them.

Fairway woods in general but the 3w especially. I have too steep a swing. Shots are very unpredictable.

But the one club I had a love/hate relationship was an Alien2 wedge. Some days I loved it, others I would love to do what Clive did with his club. My dad now has it and even he doesn't use it.

There have been many clubs that I tried that I didn't like and they didn't stay around long.  Can't say I hated any of them.
