Will your scores suffer if you play clubs from 10 years ago? – GolfWRXers discuss

Feb, 2024

In our forums, our members have been discussing the impact (if any) playing clubs from 10 years ago will have on scores. WRXer ‘theothertwo’ kicks off the thread asking:

“Will your scores suffer if you played with your driver, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, wedges and putter?  If so, how many strokes more?

The advantage of new clubs will be technology of course.  The advantage of old clubs is familiarity and mastery.”

And our members have been weighing in with their thoughts on the matter in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • TheDominator273: “Probably a couple strokes improvement with a well fit current driver, and if the wedges have been used for a decade, fresh wedges (not necessarily needing to be current line stuff) are probably worth at least a stroke a round as well just by having new grooves.”
  • GHIN n Juice: “Nah.  2013 I was probably playing an SLDR or Cally Optiforce440 and a set of mp53s. I could easily put any of those back on the bag and not miss a step today.”
  • PARETO: “Suffer? Not even a little in the irons or putter. My low round last year was with 23 year old irons and a 16 year old putter. Driver / shaft on the other hand is where gains lie over the past 10 years. Oh and fresh grooved wedges.”
