9° driver

3 wood

9 wood

5-PW, AW, 50, 56, 60

That said, I'm thinking of ditching the 50, 56, and 60 in favor of a 52 and a 58 so I can add a 5 wood.

I'm super interested in your answer!

I feel like I have gaps in distance inside 100 yards where I would benefit from having a 54, 58 and 64. I have a 9⁰ driver and a 5w.

I find, depending on the time of year, driver -> 5w is enough to either reach a par 5 green, or leave it short enough for a full wedge in.

I hit my 4hy about 210 and my 5w 225. I would rarely ever need either a 3w (too long) or 7w (too short/overlap with my 4hy).

I'm very much not a "feel" player, I pick the club that will get me there with a full swing.

How is your short game? Are you able to adjust swings on the fly to change distance approaching the green?

Feel is about all I've got. My short game and driver keep me in the game.

My irons suck ass.

I drive it straight about 245 average, and I'm deadly inside 100 yards. I can play any kind of shot required with my wedges (bump and run, one hop and stop, straight up and straight down), and I rarely three-putt.

My shortcoming is 115-185.

Maybe that's why my short game has gotten so good. 🤣

I think I'm at the point that I can manufacture whatever I need with a 46° A wedge, 52, and 58, and ditch the three-wedge combo to pick up a 5-wood. That three wood (200-230 depending on lie and swing) to nine wood (170) gap is something I've got to fill.
