PostSubject: Playing with a half set of irons - Good ideas ???   Sat Sep 17, 2011 4:58 pm

Lately i been toying with only half sets like 3i,5i,7i,9i, 52 56 or 4i,6i,8i,PW, 54 58.....If i play 120m with a 7i and i left with a 100m...i would choke down my 7i or full swing with a 9i. I seem to play my best round with half set of irons. Idea

Half sets are for bring to JB as car boot are quite small, full sets are usually to NSRCC and local course. Is it a must to bring full sets to play or half sets to focus on shots making ??

I think when half set, you force yourself to have course management, you cannot chiong, can only lay up, hence play better.

If you ask me, a full set will definitely play better than half set. Just need to do course management and don't over swing.

Just my 2 cents.

I have tried this before and was very surprised to discover that there was no significant difference in my score when I brought half set versus full set.

Can someone try this and let me know it is the same for u? Of course I assume this may not hold true if u are playing high 70s or low 80s.

Just saw one episode of Birdie Buddy (Korean Drama)...
There is one match where they can only choose three clubs.
Player A: 3 wood, PW, putter.
Player B: Driver, 6 iron, 56 degree...

Player B uses driver as putter using Adam Scott putting style (long putter)...

Been having a '3 clubs' tournament annually in Yangon (since i'm started golf in 2007) and putter is included in the '3 clubs'. Frankly speaking the score didn't change much as compared to a full set. The winner of the tournament are alway scoring low 80's.

Maybe should have 1 extreme '3-clubs' tournament in RDG calender annually.

3 club game. This is interesting. A twist to the game, it definately shows well a person take and do to meet the score.
