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

Nice setup.  And welcome to the forum from a fellow Richmonder.

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!

Awesome!  Hope it's in good shape, cause it's a fun course. Lots of good players there as well. The Meadowbrook guys games travel nicely.

      COBRA GOLF’S NEW KING FORGED TEC IRONS OFFER BETTER PLAYERS A POWERFUL COMBINATION OF ACCURACY, FEEL, DISTANCE AND FORGIVENESS IN AN EYE-CATCHING DESIGN
       
      The KING Forged TEC Irons Combine Classic Shaping with Distance & Forgiveness In Variable and ONE Length Designs
       
      COBRA Golf today introduced its next generation of KING Forged TEC Irons, featuring a traditional muscle-back shape with a hollow design for softer feel and improved power preferred by better players, available in a variable or ONE Length set make-up. Fusing a classic look with modern, cutting-edge face, finish and feel technologies, the KING Forged TEC irons provide golfers with the ideal balance of precision and distance.
       
      A sleek, muscle-back shape and sophisticated design of the Forged TEC Irons encloses an unassuming hollow body that delivers low CG and helps maximize distance, forgiveness and playability. A hollow cavity is infused with energizing foam microspheres that fine-tune acoustics and create the softer feel that better players desire while supporting a thin PWRSHELL Face for increased ball speeds. An updated forged face insert creates a larger Sweet Zone and return area for higher launch and faster ball speeds in a players iron. A tungsten toe weight centers the CG behind the hitting zone to maximize distance and increase precision for attacking pins, even on off-center hits.
       
      Like a majority of COBRA equipment, the Forged TEC irons will feature the innovative COBRA CONNECT™ Powered by Arccos allowing users to track their accuracy and distance using the Arccos Caddie app on a smart device. Electronically embedded sensors in the grip automatically record the distance and accuracy of every shot so golfers can track their improvements round-to-round.
       
      The KING Forged TEC ONE Length irons offer an added dimension of consistency, as COBRA engineers have manipulated the design of each iron to match the weight and length of a 7-iron, allowing for one simple, repetitive set up and swing motion to reduce variability and increase consistency between clubs. This is primarily achieved through matching 7-iron head and swing weights in every iron to create a consistent feel throughout the set. Weight is added to the ONE Length long irons to compensate for shorter (37.50”) shafts and to match 7-iron swing weight, while weight is removed from the short irons & wedges to compensate for longer shafts while still delivering traditional 7-iron swing weight. In addition, lie angles have been adjusted to optimize ball flight in a ONE Length set configuration. Long irons utilize more upright lie angles, while the short irons and wedges have slightly flatter lie angles delivering more consistent trajectory and ball flights. Lighter long iron shafts encourage easy launch while heavier wedge shafts promote more control into and around the green.
       
      The Forged Tec ONE Length irons are available through stock in an 7-piece (4-PW) set in stiff and regular, in both right and left-handed versions (graphite is available through custom in x-stiff, stiff and regular). The steel version come equipped with a KBS $-Taper Lite (115- stiff, 110 – reg, 120 – wedge) shaft with Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grips in a blue colorway.
       
      The Forged Tec variable length irons (MAP: $1,099 steel; $1,199 graphite) are available through stock in an 8-piece (4-GW) set in both right and left-hand versions. The steel KBS $-Taper Lite shaft is offered in both regular (R110) and stiff (S115) flexes. Graphite offerings in Project X Catalyst 80 in regular, stiff and x-stiff flexes are available through custom only.  Each set comes stock with Lamkin Crossline COBRA CONNECT grips in black.
       
      The Forged Tec irons in variable and ONE Length will be available at retail and at cobragolf.com beginning November 1, 2019. For more information on the entire KING family of products, visit cobragolf.com.

      Driver: Thank you MGS, flat out the best driver I have ever had in the bag.
      3W: A random purchase after being unable to hit the original epic 3w. Put same shaft that I was fit for in the epic and it has been a match made in heaven. Absolute money from the tee and I know exactly what it will do from the fairway. Combined with the driver there are not many par 5's that I can't reach. 
      5W: Solid club but this spot has always been a trouble spot in my bag and that hasn't changed in 20 years. 
      Irons: Love the combo and they feel absolutely amazing. All of them are 1* strong, standard lie and +1/2" Biggest thing I was looking for in making the change was more control. They definitely fly different than P790's but hopefully after an adjustment period they will meet or exceed my expectations. 
      Wedges: A different look from what I am used to but feel is amazing. The shaft on full swings is so easy for me to deliver correctly. 
      Putter: Not a fast revolving door but one that moves some. Have gotten used to the look of the center shaft but still struggling with alignment some. 
      Ball: Titleist PROV1X #23 imprinted with THEZIPR in blue. Have played this ball since its birth and while I have tried many other options nothing has been able to kick it out. 
      Rangefinder: Bushnell PRO X2 
      Glove: Footjoy Weathersof. Love the Ping tour glove but at the rate I go through gloves I just can't justify the price difference.
      Shoes: Ecco Biom G 3 BOA and Biom Hybrid 3 BOA. Most comfortable shoes I have ever worn.
