Clubs needed some updating. There will be some other updates (bag, shoes, shot tracker, etc.) to add in a later post as well 😀. Hopefully set until spring! Probably still three months away from my first round of the 2020 season.

  • Driver: Callaway Epic Flash 10.5, turned to 9.5, weight in draw position. HZRDUS Yellow 6.0 with Golf Pride Yellow NDMC grip.
  • 3 Wood: Mizuno GT 180, turned to 16 degrees, weight in back. MRC Tensei White Stiff, Stock Mizuno/Golf Pride Tour Velvet
  • Irons (4-GW): Maltby PTM Chrome, KBS C-Taper Lite 110 Stiff, Red Star Sidewinder grips 
  • 52/56/60 Degree Wedges: Custom Tempered DTG Inazone CNC Spin, Apollo Standard Stepless Stiff (soft-stepped), Black Star Sidewinder grips
  • Putter: TaylorMade Spider Tour Red with Sightline, 33", Stock TM/SuperStroke Pistol GTR 1.0

Looking back to my original post from early this year, nearly everything has changed. Only the putter remains (and I have not intention of changing it, at least, not right now 🤣).

Man those PTMs look slick! So clean and simple yet so Maltby/non-OEM! And that's what we love about them

the more I practice, the luckier I seem to get..

Final bag update prior to #COBRACONNECT. I'm pretty happy with the current setup, minus some gapping issues at the bottom of the bag, where I should go 52/58 instead of 54/60.

That divot tool is something special! Where did you find that?

Looks like it will be a good backup bag for you after the Cobra gear arrives.

Anything you think will put up a fight against the Speedzone stuff?

Thanks! The divot tool is available from a Michigan-themed company called High Five Threads: https://www.highfivethreads.com/products/michigan-divot-tool

I'm guessing it's similar around Boston, but there are tons of Michigan-themed stores here that do t-shirts and other merchandise.

It'll be interesting to see how the Epic Flash stacks up to the SpeedZone. I'm not sure the rest of the clubs are in the same league. The SpeedZone irons intrigue me a lot because I'm getting to be a better ball striker with my irons and the Maltbys actually work pretty darn well at the moment. Will I trade presumably even more forgiveness for feel? I can tell exactly where I hit the face on the Maltbys.

Comparison of the PTM leading-edge relief and the Cobra soles are something I'm eager to keep an eye on as well. Currently love the turf interaction of the PTMs.

I need to check out the wedge grinds. I don't do well with sharp leading edges. These Maltbys have a nice soft leading edge, looks like maybe the Cobra versatile grind is what I'm going to want to match.

Really cool bag. Starting doing some research on the MMT shafts. Needless to say I’m intrigued. I love the modus tours I have but I will consider graphite when my body tells me it’s time.

Thank you! I've been through enough clubs and fittings over the past two years to know what I like and dislike in clubs now. One of the things I picked up from here is, "Why make golf harder than it needs to be?"

I really tried to analyze the weakest parts of my game and see how I could play better and think I've come up with a setup that will do that.

Thanks! That's probably the nicest comment I could get in a sea of other very cool WITB posts.

Callaway has the MMTs in this year's fitting cart. I encourage you to go hit one (I demoed an Apex Forged and the 95S shaft before buying the Sub70's). They feel amazing for my swing, and I love the dampening effect. I hit 150 balls today in 20ish degree weather off the mats and have zero wrist or elbow pain tonight.

Very interested to see what kind of success you have at the top end of the bag with the hybrids. I plan to get a fitting for that area of my bag and was leaning more toward woods vs hybrids. Seeing your thoughts there has me a little more open to hybrids and not just having woods because that's how it normally is.

Picked up a gently used 2016 model Cobra KING Utility to give me some more flexibility at the top end of the bag. Paired the head with a MMT 105 TX Utility shaft to match the profile of the irons.

IMG_25022021_151543_(1280_x_960_pixel).jpg.8a858d19324198f2af9b97f881d970a8.jpg

I don't expect this club to get a lot of use at my home course, but there are a handful of more open, links-style courses that I like to play where this will likely make an appearance as a tee club. In those situations, I'll drop the Sub70 4 iron to make room and loft the Epic Flash hybrid up to 22 or 23 degrees so that I still have a 200-ish yard club for approaches into greens.
