What Is Your Dream Setup?


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

I have got a bad habit of getting home from work, launching YouTube, and just watching equipment reviews for a long, long time. The bad part is, I've seen the same videos over and over. I've read the same reviews over and over. I just can't stop.

 

Most of these reviews are of clubs that I would like to eventually have to build my dream bag. Ive got most of it figured out, and I'm part of the way there. It's nothing too spectacular, but it will be my endgame I'm sure.

 

Mine is:

 

- Cobra F7+ Driver (acquired)

- Cobra F7 3-4 Wood

- Ping G or Tour Edge EX10 Hybrid

- Ping i200 Irons

- Cleveland RTX3 Wedges Black Satin

- Bettinardi Studio Stock 2 Putter

 

So, what does your dream bag contain?

I have no clue what would end up in my dream bag but, my dream equipment outfitting session would involve having access to every OEM's tour fitting van and getting my perfect setup built custom for me from the golf techs who equip the pros. Custom weighting, bending, grinding, fancy stamping; the whole shebang!

mack daddy 2 56 and 60 wedges

Handicap: my swing.

I'd love to throw down the perfect hardware setup, but it's all for naught if my swing is a mess. I'd add on top of dang3rtown's suggestion by having a few years worth of lessons from butch Harmon or any of the top 10 teaching pros.

My dream bag is the one where I know every club intimately. As I assess the ball's lie I reach for a club, address the ball, and know exactly what will happen if I put a grooved swing on it. That is the dream.

Here I am odd man out yet again---- I would say my dream bag would be what is in my signature for now. I am not openly looking for anything but if something happens to come my way I like well. I do mess around in the wedge department quite a bit because I have so many wedges. Now when it comes to the vintage stuff I switch all the time since I have so much vintage stuff. That is a big part of my fun on the vintage side. Again I guess I am lucky I have the equipment and knowledge to build and set my own clubs.

 

With all that being said there is nothing with dreaming about your dream bag. I guess I am lucky

Ditto for me - five me a fitter who has access to everything and let's see what we end up with.

 

For now I'm content with everything in the bag except fairway wood

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

Dream set-up (what I want) might not necessarily translate to ideal set-up (what gives the best numbers).

If we are talking just based on sexiness (without taking fitting results into consideration):

 

Driver TM 2017 M2

Woods Titleist 917F3

Irons Mizuno JPX900 Forged

Wedges Mizuno T7 white satin

Putter EVNROLL ER1

I like to dream.. here goes

2 Wood: TM TS 14°

 

DI: Ping Rapture 2 iron

 

Irons: Cobra King CB/MB 2-9

 

Wedges: James Patrick 48°, 53°, 57° and 61°

 

Putter: Edel Brick

Bomber Leather head covers from the driver through the irons all the way to the putter. Can't have those forged beauties getting dinged up!

 

But those Ping iBlades recently caught my eye at the shop.

Driver: Exotics CB4 Tour (gamer)

3-Metal: TMade RBZ Tour

5-Metal: Callaway Xhot (2006)

3-Pw: Miura Baby Blades

Wedges: Fourteen Golf 54 & 58

Putter: Mitchell Studio (Gamer)

Gotta have the Jack Hamm Hammer X as the big dog

 

Skip right to a set of the Bobby Jones hybrids by Jesse Ortiz... 2-6

 

Then skip to a full set of XE1 wedges... 46, 48, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60. Really dial it in with 6 yard increments.

So I just ordered a used SCOR 56 with a Genius 7 shaft from Global Golf for 44.00.

 

My dream would now be to find a fairway wood that I can hit off the turf with some proficiency. The 3 wood will stay in the bag until then as it gives me 200-215 fairly stress free off the tee.

 

I will just have to lay up if I have over 190. It's better than what's been happening lately anyway.

 

The rest of my bag truly is my dream set up. It all fits.
