Here's what's in my bag:

Driver: Rocketballz RBZ Stage 2 9.5 degree Fujikura Rocketfuel 60 gram Stiff shaft

3-Wood: Roketballz RBZ Sage 2 Tour TS 13 degree Fujikura Rocketfuel 70 gram Stiff shaft

Hybrid 4: Rocketballz Stage 2  4 hybrid 21 degree Fujikura Rocketfuel 65 gram Stiff shaft

Iron: 2-iron Titleist DTR (Distance Through Research) (still in the bag - from 1990!)

Irons: 3-PW Titleist AP2 718 (recently upgraded from AP2 710s) AMT White S300 shafts

Wedges: Cleveland 588 Tour Action RTG 52, 56 and 60 degree

Putter: Odyssey 2-Ball Fang with Superstroke  3.0 Slim Grip

Alternate Putter: The Wilson 8802 (again, still in the bag - from 1990)

I shuffle the 3-wood, hybrid and 2-iron and drop the 60 degree wedge when I need to carry 2.

 

Just upgraded the irons, looking to upgrade the driver and 3/hybrid. Then I need to look into the wedges, maybe go to 50, 54, and 58 to fit better with the lofts on the new irons?

Thanks,

Mick

More details (don't know if anyone will read this, and I'm sure nobody else will care!):

My current handicap is 7.8 It's been as low as 2.1 and crept up to the 15 range when my kids were little, now I'm (painfully slowly) working my way back down. My driver swing speed is currently 118. That can be a blessing or a curse! If I can keep it on the course, the game is much easier! I've had multiple (2) rounds in the 60s with multiple penalty strokes...beyond frustrating! Looking forward to being able to come close to that again...this is the year (if they ever let us back on the courses)!

Thanks,

Mick

If you look closely (but even then you might not be able to tell), I did take the plastic off the pitching wedge and hit it around the yard (the third full shot I hit with it hit the mailbox (my target) on the fly from 125 yards). Haven't been able to get out on the course with them yet. This virus stuff sucks! Can't wait to get out and hit the rest! I was planning to upgrade to the AP2 720 when they came out, but Titleist had other ideas. I decided to go with the last of the AP2s instead of going to the new T-series. Not sure if I would have gone with the T100 (or T100s), or the T200. This way, I didn't have to choose. I also wanted to stick with forged irons, and I wasn't sure if the T200s were forged at the time. I got a decent deal since I was buying the 718s in 2020, so that helped a little. Now I have more in the budget for the rest of the upgrades. I probably should replace the DTR 2-iron, but it has some sentimental value (and I know I can hit it down the middle 240-250 when I need it...confidence is a big factor!).

 

Thanks,

Mick

Any suggestions for wedges to replace my ancient Cleveland 588 RTGs? Probably going from 52/56/60 to 50/54/? Should I get the AP2 gap wedge to go with the rest of the irons, or something else? Thinking maybe Vokeys? Obviously, I haven't been in the wedge market for almost 30 years! I haven't played competetively since the late 90s and the grooves on the old 588 RTGs might not even be legal anymore! 

 

Thanks,

Mick
