Hey everyone! new member/first post here so bear with me!

Callaway (unknown model) Grey Goose stand bag (looks awesome, purchased from PlayItAgain)

Cobra F7 Driver - Stiff 60g Fukijura shaft - Garfield "Born 2 Birdie" Headcover

Callaway Rouge 3 wood - Adila Synergy Regular shaft

Cobra F7 5 wood - Regular Fukijura shaft - My old Callaway Diablo 3 wood Headcover

TaylorMade TP Rescue 4/22* - I'm not sure how old this is, I am in the market for something new

Cobra F8 Iron set 5-GW - Regular flex TrueTemper XP90 shafts 

Ping Tour-S 54*/12* bounce wedge - KBS Tour Shaft

Adams Tom Watson 58*/8* bounce wedge - Adams branded shaft

Tommy Armour Impact #3 Putter - 35" Black painted shaft

I think the next things to be replaced are the Rescue, then the wedges, then the driver. I also have the 38" Counterbalanced TA putter I have used twice if anyone is interested! Enjoy the pictures:

Thank you! I think I was able to scrounge together a decent set on a budget. Every club in the bag was bought at a pretty good discount (used/ebay/open box etc).

Pretty decent set up---- That old TM Rescue is one heck of a club----- For me on those hybrids I like the prior generation TM Rescue and older Adams---- Those old Tom Watson Adams wedge are a direct copy of the old Watson Ram wedges which were pretty decent wedges. All in all I like your set up does not have to be the newest or latest and greatest to work

Good to see another one here! Where do you usually play?

I used to belong to Meadowbrook back in the day, but I didn't play enough to make it worth my while.  I'm a volunteer coach at The First Tee, and since my 11-year old plays, I spend quite a bit of time out there with her.  As for "real" golf courses, I play all over the place:  Providence, Mill Quarter, Belmont, The Hollows, The Highlands.  I'll splurge a few times a year on nice courses like Independence.  A good buddy belongs to Jefferson Lakeside, so I play there with him several times a year.

How about you?

Nice! volunteer at the first tee in town or Chesterfield?

I'd like to join a club, almost joined Birkdale for their summer deal, but its too far from home to pop in for 9 after work (what I want).

Other than that I'm all over as well. Sycamore Creek, The Hollows, I lived with a friend's parents right off the 17th fairway at Independence so I've played that a few times, went up to Pendleton a few weekends ago, Lake Monticello last weekend. Used to play as a guest at Jefferson Lakeside with a friend, and have played Willow Oaks as a guest as well.

But my favorite for the money is The Hollows. It's too bad that Belmont is always in bad shape, and I don't know anyone who's played the other public course out east - but I'm curious about that one.

I volunteer at both.  Chesterfield is just a little bit closer, but neither is more than 30 minutes away.

I've heard Belmont is in pretty decent shape... except for the bunkers.  I think Henrico County is shopping it around, trying to bring in a management company (if they decide not to turn it into a park).

Which course out east are you talking about?  Glenwood?  Haven't played it in years.  Too many stories about shootings near that course.  Or Brookwoods out in New Kent?  Nice little course, but haven't played that one in a few years either.

What kind of deal is Birkdale running?  I'm not too far away from them either.

Birkdale was (might still be) running a membership for $145-ish a month for unlimited rounds with 3 months free cart fees. This includes Hanover cc and a discounted rate for brandermill cc (all owned by the same company) with a 14 month agreement. 

My friend plays the Monday night league at Belmont he says the front is bad, but the back nine is decent. 

Glenwood is for sure what I'm talking about, it's close to the low income housing over there.

I really didn't "mean" to have mostly Cobra stuff - I got the driver first after hitting most of the drivers from 2017, the F7 was the second best I hit, and cost less than half of the other ones (open box).

I wasn't in the market for new irons, but was paroozing ebay, saw these F8 irons' auction was about to expire for just under $220 (all clubs brand new other than one didn't have the wrapper on it) - so I jumped on them

And you know this bag will look very different soon!

      It’s been a while since I posted but it’s time to update what is in my bag for my first season of professional golf.
       

       
      There are definitely some improvements that I’m looking forward to but overall I’m pretty happy with my bag so far. It helps that this setup has me -2 thru 54 holes of tournament golf (and $1,200 in winnings) since the driver, 3wood and wedges went in the bag on June 23rd.
       
      So here is what is in my bag.

      Irons: Titleist 714 AP2 4-PW - KBS C-Taper 130 X
      Wedges: Vokey SM7 - Dynamic Gold X100
      Putter: Evnroll ER2 - P2 Aware Grip
      Ball: Titleist ProV1 Yellow
      Glove: Under Armour Iso-Chill
      Range Finder: Precision Pro NX7 Pro
      Speed Trainer: Golf Stick Pro

      Dr (8.5*) - 290
      3w (14.25*) - 265
      2 (18*) - 245

      5 (25*) - 215
      6 (29*) - 205

      Shankster and PING Blueprint Irons---A Match Made in Heaven? 
      Every so often we do a special review of a club on MGS.   Usually it's when the OEM provides us with one set or one driver etc for review, it's not practical to open it up to over 500 to 1,000 applications and pick just one person.
      So when the Blueprint review was generously offered by PING with the stipulation it went to a member who was a true low single digit handicap, we discussed as a group who would be an ideal member to reach out to test these beauties. Honestly at least half a dozen names came to mind, but some of them were already involved in a testing or had just completed one.  
      Then one name really jumped out at us,  Shankster.   Not just because he fit the handicap requirement, but if there is any one person on this site who is a more of a traditionalist and prefers the minimalist design in a club than Alan, we don't know who it is.  
      When we reached out to Shankster, it took him about 1 minute to say yes, and that's only because he was recovering from the shock of being asked and making sure he wasn't being punked!     We had to work through the timing of his move from Michigan to Maryland, but all that got sorted out.
      Not knowing exactly when today he'll get his post up, I'll leave you with a few of these.

      PRESS RELEASE
      PING introduces next generation
      of custom-fit women’s equipment
       
      PHOENIX (July 1, 2019): Advancements in technology, lighter overall club weight, expanded fitting options and premium materials combine to make the new G Le2 family PING’s highest performing women’s clubs to date, the company announced today. The complete line of clubs is available for pre-order at authorized PING golf shops around the world beginning today.
       
      “The G Le2 represents our continued commitment to providing women golfers of every skill level with premium, high-performance equipment optimized to their swing speeds,” said Stacey Pauwels, PING Executive Vice President and the granddaughter of PING founders Karsten and Louise Solheim, whose role includes overseeing the brand’s women’s initiatives.”
       
      “To achieve one of our performance goals of improving the feel of the club throughout the entire swing, we focused on making the clubs lighter overall,” Pauwels added.  “We integrated our extensive knowledge of materials and manufacturing processes with our proven design technologies to deliver measurable improvements throughout the set. At the same time, we wanted to present the new clubs in a visually appealing and confidence-inspiring way. We’re extremely excited about the results and look forward to bringing the G Le2 family to women golfers around the world.”
       
      Custom fit and custom built
      Along with ensuring measurable performance improvements throughout the G Le2 family, PING’s engineering team placed added importance on expanding the fitting options to help women find the ideal set to match their games.
       
      “Having equipment that is custom fitted to their games allows women to see improvement from every club in their bag,” said Pauwels. “The G Le2 family really emphasizes that need through loft, lie and length adjustability along with the shaft weight, flex and grip offerings. Once we know those specifications, finding the best combination of fairway woods, hybrids, irons and wedges during a fitting is the next step in the process.”
       
      “Because we custom build every club, we want women to know we’ll make them a set that best fits their game,” she said. “The key is determining the ideal set makeup that provides proper distance gaps between each club. That may be a full set or maybe a smaller set of a few metal woods, hybrids, irons, a wedge and a putter. Once we have all their fitting information, we can custom build the clubs to their precise specifications for maximum performance.”
      Lighter, faster, more forgiving driver
       
      The next generation of golf’s highest-performing women’s driver maximizes forgiveness and distance through a higher MOI, faster face and lighter overall weight. Its titanium head features a rounder, more aerodynamic shape to promote faster clubhead speeds. A thin, forged T9S+ face is optimized for the intended swing speed to increase flexing for more ball velocity and improved launch conditions. Internal heel-biased weighting helps ensure straighter ball flights and softer turbulators help frame the ball at address. Trajectory Tuning 2.0 in the G Le2 driver utilizes a new lightweight, aerodynamic hosel sleeve that provides eight positions for influencing ball flight through loft (±1.5°) adjustments.
       
      Faster faces, higher-launching, adjustable fairway woods
       
      A thinner, faster maraging steel C300 face, a significantly higher MOI and an 8-lobe adjustable hosel distinguish the G Le2 fairway wood from its predecessor. The added ball speed from the face technology increases distance and combines with the shallower face to launch the ball higher with greater forgiveness. An overall lighter club weight makes swinging the club easier with more clubhead speed for longer and straighter results. Internal weighting promotes right-to-left shot correction to keep shots on target. Available in 3, 5, 7 and 9 woods.
       
      Lighter, longer and straighter irons
       
      Precise and forgiving with a lighter overall club weight, G Le2 irons utilize COR-Eye Technology with a deep top-rail undercut to increase face flexing for more ball speed and higher max height. A tungsten toe weight helps increase MOI by 10% for greater forgiveness and a co-molded cavity badge ensures a pleasing feel and sound. Available in 6-9 iron, PW, UW, SW.
       
      Faster face, higher-launching hybrids with more fitting choices
       
      A thinner, hotter Carpenter 455 face and lighter club weight generate faster ball speeds while a lower, deeper CG helps increase the MOI to launch the ball high with greater forgiveness. The addition of a 34⁰ 7 hybrid expands the fitting options for women who prefer the technology of a hybrid in place of an iron. Softer crown turbulators help capture the ball at address and aid in alignment. Available in 4, 5, 6 and 7 hybrids.
       
      Adjustable putters with feel and forgiveness
       
      Enhanced feel and forgiveness and a new adjustable-length shaft improve performance and fitting opportunities in the three new G Le2 putters (Anser, Shea and Echo). A dual-durometer face insert -- engineered with TR face technology -- provides a soft front layer for precision and improved impact feel and a firmer second layer for control to improve consistency on putts of every distance. The easy-to-use adjustable shaft allows self-fitting for length between 31" and 35". A new, softer PP59 midsize grip improves feel and comfort.
       
      Lighter shafts, softer grips
      PING’s proprietary ULT240 Lite and Ultra Lite premium graphite shafts are standard throughout the G Le2 family and help bring down overall club weight while helping generate more clubhead speed and higher launch. The super-soft Golf Pride Tour Velvet Garnet 360 grip is available in three sizes (Blue -1/16", Red -1/32", Aqua -1/64").
