Been on the forum for a bit now, just wanted to talk about what’s in my bag and what everyone else has working (or not working) for them. I have just recently changed drivers, that being the Taylormade SIM Max 10.5 degree. I took the shaft (HZRDUS 6.0 76g with the yellow writing, not the smoke) from my PING G30 and had the new tip installed because I absolutely love it and they are harder to find now for some reason. Aside from that, I have had the same clubs In the bag for roughly 3-4 years now. As mentioned, I have the new sim driver, ping g30 3 wood and 3 hybrid (both stock stiff shaft), Mizuno MP59 irons with KBS tour 120 stiff shafts, Vokey SM5 wedges (50,56,60), scotty Cameron select Newport blade from 2015. I usually play a taylormade TP5 but I will hit whatever is in the bag. I have hit ProV1’s, Srixon soft feel, Bridgestone b330, pinnacle soft (laugh it up), and almost anything out of the weeds that will fly and roll (ha). I was fitted for my irons and I absolutely love them. Great feel, lofts are not too aggressive or passive, can work the ball (to the best of my ability) with them, and they sound magical (for me sound is psychologically either a confidence boost or bust). My irons have come light years from where they were prior to being fitted so I would absolutely recommend letting someone who knows what they’re doing fit you for irons. And most people will say “I would not suggest a blade and I would bet you’re not good enough to play them). Well it’s more of a MB and I swear the smaller an iron you can hit, the more you will rely on your striking ability and skill than just hoping the club will help you out because you know you’re going to mis hit it. Don’t get me wrong, game improvement absolutely has a place but if you can convince yourself to just try more of a players type club you will not be disappointed. Even my dad who is around a +11-12 handicapper hit my 7 iron several times on the range and said “wow, that feels amazing and it gives way more feedback than my irons. So irons are kind of a personal thing but I would definitely recommend getting fit. It’s like wearing shoes that fit and walking all day as opposed to borrowing a size too big or small and trying to make them work. Anyway, on to the next. I absolutely love the new driver, I was fitted for my PING and my dad actually purchased the sim prior to me getting it. The sound of that thing was magical and I loved the look. Not swapping shafts I kind of gambled and just went with the same degree and the max instead of the regular sim. I don’t work the ball a ton with a driver so the added forgiveness was more appealing to me because realistically the number differences were nominal when I hit them in the pro shop. It was a good gamble, I consistently hit the ball straighter as compared to the ping and we all know keeping the ball in the fairway will lower your score quicker than anything. My spin was slightly lower with the sim than the ping and that also adds to the straighter flight I’m sure. And I assume the twistface has helped my mishits. Could be wrong, but it seems that way. I usually carry the driver around 265-270 and on a good striking day maybe a little further. No superhero drives usually. Lol. If I could hit it straight and 250 every time and I would sell my soul. Wedges are as I said the sm5 vokey wedges (50,56,60) and I know most of you will rip me for playing a 50 instead of a 52 to keep my gapping more consistent. But hey, it works for me using a controlled swing and a knockdown swing with the 50 and then being able to nip the 56 and 60 closer to the greens to give me a little more control. Bunker shots I usually go for the 56 just so I don’t have to really swing for the fence but if I’m short sided or want it to stop a little faster I will use the 60. I love them but this is one reason I’m posting this, I want to know what everyone hits that works!! Putter, Scotty, and I firmly believe everyone is different when it comes to a putter so I’m not making any suggestions or comments on what putter because I believe you should use what works for you and what you feel comfortable with. 
 

let’s hear what you guys like or dislike in my bag and what’s in your bag that I need to have a look at!! Q

Welcome!

Great post—-one hint—Paragraphs are your AND our friends.  Im afraid your very interesting post will get overlooked by many as it was very hard to read—on mobile—which a large percentage of readers use.  Ok you get the point. 

I really like the mixture of brands in your bag.  Sounds like the irons and FW have been keepers for you.  
 

Love your choice of wedges and putter 😎

While not a full look at my bag here is are some recent pics of it

those MP59's were beauties!  I know quite a few guys that are still playing them and won't switch no matter how worn they are!

Welcome to the club!  Weekly meetings here, but you get no coin to remind you of the addiction we all have! 😄
