Anyone out there play a half set regularly…?
This year I’m planning to play a lot more of my social rounds with a half set and going minimal.
Why…? A few reasons (which are very much theory at the moment), in no particular order:
1 - less to carry and less weight. Being in the UK we always walk and saving a bit of weight is always welcomed.
2 - shot making. Learning properly how to play knock down shots, high shots etc etc to make up for the gaps in your bag has to be a good thing…? Forced to be more creative.
3 - scoring. Mentally with a half set I will hopefully be able to relax in the knowledge that I won’t score as well, so I can play golf for the pure fun of it, focus on the great company and the courses I play. A good score is not everything…!
What do you think…? Something anyone is doing…?
Not sure I can go full minimal, and will still play the full set on comp days.
