I own a nine wood but am not carrying it at the moment. Used to play a course where the finishing hole was up a big hill, with a bunker guarding the green. I just knew that 9W would do the job for me. Mostly now, it's for links courses or similar.
I recently got a new set of irons and driver but I held onto my 4 wood and my 58* wedge. I hit both with a lot of confidence. I did purchase the Groove Sharpener for the wedge(as recommended in the review section) so it'll be like new.
