To you golfers out there, I just picked up a good 7 wood (Ping i3), and now I have 14 clubs in the bag. However, I'm considering taking out my 3 iron (since I can't really hit it anyway) and replacing it with a 60 degree wedge. Any comments?

Hmmm... I'd generally recommend keeping the 3I, but if you can't hit it worth anything then I guess it's a moot point. As for the 60 degree wedge... yeah, go for it. There were times I wished I had something more than a 54 degree wedge.
BTW, how do you like that new fairway wood? Looks like a good pick...
N400QX needs to get back into the game-- its been months

I'd say get yourself a 60 degree wedge, if you really think it'll help your game, but don't take that 3I out of your bag. You may not be able to hit very well, but it makes a great chipping wedge. Use it with a half swing, on an incline, about 35 yards out. You wouldn't believe the control you can get from it! BTW, I have a driving iron, I think its a 67 degree, and it works great for me at about 220 yards out.

Dang.... 200+ with a 5 iron...
I'm not really a "big" kid, and I don't really swing that hard, so my 5 iron will go about 150. I've tried choking up on the 4 and 3 iron, but it only seems to work on the 4. Strange. I do carry four woods, but I imagine I could probably do without the 5, but I really like fairway woods. And I've noticed that I'm able to flop the ball pretty accurately with my sand wedge when I don't have a lot of green to work with. Hmm... chipping with the 3 iron ... I'll have to give that a try.
