PostSubject: Volvo Ace of Clubs @ WGCC Goes back To Its Roots   Mon Aug 31, 2009 10:33 pm

This Saturday's novelty game in WGCC hosts the annual Volvo ACE of Clubs, what is different after 8 long years is it is going back to its roots.

Each golfer is restricted to carry only 4+1 clubs in the bag, that is where the name 'ACE of Clubs' is derived.

The (+1) is obviously your putter, if you were playing my qyestion is .....


.....What would you have put in your bag?

For me:
1. Driver..to allow tee off so as to maximise distance
2. Hybrid 18deg...mostly 2nd shot
3. 7 iron...to pitch and 2nd shot
4. Wedge 52deg....just in case lucky to end up in green bunker

if i playing, I'll study the course first then decide what to use, for sure will bring my 60 wedge as I only chip with that. the rest will depend on how well i hit them and how I can fit them to the course

Wat if ur club dun go ur distance? hum liao lor. Cannot calculate like that one.

Icebocc:

- 18/19deg Hybrid (for long shots)
- 7i ( for >150m)
- 9i (for >120m)
- LW (Sand and 80m shots)

Putter.

that was how my set looked like when I was 14yrs old. (5 wd instead of hybrid and SW instead of LW then). Really simplifies your game and improve your shotmaking skills.

Wah S70B! Great minds think alike! lol!

Though the clubs are a bit different but they cover the same distance, here's my selection for saturday....

- 5w (versatile long distance club with knock down shots capability)
- 6i > 150m
- 9i > 120m
- 53wedge (sand to 80m shot) Very Happy
