Travel Clubs

MADGOLFER

Hello Team, Madgolfer here looking for some input. I work 200 miles from home but luckily for me there is a golf course near my work so I can play and practice while im gone. Ok so here's my dillima. I've always been told that its a bad idea to leave your clubs in the trunk of the car in the heat for long periods of time, so I don't take my current set with me on the road. I take a old bag and just a few miscellaneous clubs to stay in rhythm..The question is should I be taking the clubs that I play with or is the fact that I'm practicing at all good enough??Thanx.madgolfer

    I think practicing is good enough, but an option could be to take your primary set and leave them in your hotel room (assuming you stay over while gone) during the day.
    When I traveled for work I usually took my clubs and never had an issue leaving them in the room while at work.

    Agree with Barry. That's what I would do. The extensive heat in the trunk can melt the epoxy on the shafts and cause the heads to come loose. If you do not want to take all you clubs, work out a rotation. One week take you odd number clubs and the next week take your even number clubs. Then then next week your wedges, or something to make it interesting so you do have to take all your clubs with you. Always take you putter. That's your money club.

    I agree whole-heartedly with Chuck Z, that's what I would have recommended. I tend to split range days into long and short clubs. I'll split my back at the 6.5 club (short days take 7-58deg, long days take 6-driver). Roughly same number of clubs each day depending on how my bag is set up at the time, and keeps from over-wearing any particular range of clubs. That being said, Chuck's odd-even system would serve the same purpose, and might be a better system for working on a range of shot setups... may have to give that a try.

    I'm a highly routine based guy and would probably have some kind of breakdown if I were practicing with clubs other than those that I play with (not to say my quirks are anything on which to base a personal decision).
