Was thinking about the state of the bag as the summer winds down and I realized that there are a bunch of clubs that I am not interested in swapping out next year. Curious what you have in the bag that will be persisting on into the 2018 season.

 

Here's my set:

 

Driver: PING G400 - Secure in bag

Fairways: Cobra F7 3W and 5W - Secure in bag

Hybrid: PING G - could go, not life changing

Irons: Mizuno JPX-EZ Forged - good, but could go - maybe G400

Wedges: Cleveland RTX-3 54/58 - Dig these a bunch, likely secure but may try CBX

Putter: Odyssey O-Works Red 7s- pretty locked which for a putter is a surprise

Driver, fairway, irons and putter are locked in

My hybrid is going to need some more time to win me over.

If SM7s are released, they'll likely be replacing my Sm6s

I'm pretty happy with the majority of my bag.
Things that may change are driver. However that's a yearly thing which I always have a eye to update.
Club between iron and 3 wood. Haven't really found that club which suits me well there.

3 wood (cobra f7) won't be going anywhere as it's the most consistent club in my bag.
Irons I'm very pleased with as well as my putter.
I have two sets up wedges which I love both so can complain there either!

The only clubs that are "safe" are irons and putter. Everything else is up in the air. If they get replaced, they will be replaced with used stuff.

The stuff in my signature is pretty much set. IF and I say a big IF I choose to play in a stipulated event I can swap out the 3 wedges with 3 conforming ones. I may switch the irons now and again when I want to play blades with modern woods and hybrids but mostly I see the 2013 Cally X Forged in the front line bag


Driver Titleist 915 D-2 Mitsubishi Diamana 65 R
3 Wood Adams Super S--- Stock Bassara Regular Shaft
Hybrid--- TM Rescue Mid 19* Pro Launch Blue HY special

2 Iron 19* 1999 Forged Hogan Apex S-300 non tipped butt cut only to 43" (yep a real Hogan when Hogan was Hogan)

Irons --- 5 thru PW 2013 Callaway X Forged Rifle 5,5 PXI Blueprinted

GW --- Callaway BECU 50* S-300

SW Callaway Mack Daddy PM Grind 56* KBS wedge stock

I don't see any reason to switch a club out. But then again, I say that at the conclusion of most seasons. Will try my best to show some self control because I'm really happy with what I've got working right meow.

I switched all my irons and wedges to Ping ISI white dots last month and having a blast with them. Love the funky looking heads in my bag but the performance is where they shine. Such easy clubs to hit. I think they will be staying in the bag for awhile.

I'm very happy with my putting now that I moved to a face balanced design with the Zing 5. My Nicklaus Air Max 3-wood has been in the bag for 15 years and isn't going anywhere.

Driver and Hybrid are the only ??? In the bag right now. Maybe by spring I'll finally get a driver fitting for a G400. I'm not happy with the consistency of my hybrid and am considering replacing it with a 5 or 7 wood.

Nothing is likely to go though I could replace my wedges with essentially the same thing.

    Hi. We are addicted to golf and rent high-end golf clubs (PXGs, Callaways, Titleists, and TaylorMades) on demand in the LA area. My Golf Spy looks like a great site and we look forward to interacting with other golfers on the site.

    he best players don't get overwhelmed with mechanical thoughts as they stand over the ball. They pick one feel-based thought and go with it. Steal one of these tour thoughts for some pre-swing clarity.
