North Jersey WITB & Player Background


Recommended Posts

Driver -  9° Callaway Epic Flash Sub Zero (+1°) - Hzrdus Smoke Black 6.5 60gram shaft

3 Wood - 15° Taylormade RBZ - stock stiff shaft (next club being phased out)

3 Hybrid - 18° Taylormade Burner 2.0 - Aldila Tour Green stiff 85gram shaft

5-PW - Sub70 699 Pro Satin (lie +1°) - KBS C-Taper 130gram xflex (newest addition to the bag)

50° - Bettinardi H2 SS 303 Wedge - KBS Tour stiff flex

54° - Tommy Armour VCG Wedge - True Temper S200 Tour

58° - Cleveland RTX4 Wedge - True Temper Dynamic Gold Tour

Putter - Ray Cook Silver Ray SR500 Putter

Bag - Sub70 Gray/Black/White Stand bag

Ball - Taylormade TP5X Pix (I buy the practice version)

 

This bag is a hodge-podge to the extreme. I just got seriously into golf over the winter 2018-2019, and really kicked it into gear during the pandemic.

The only clubs I actually got fitted for were the Sub70 699 pros. Otherwise this bag is built on convenience and bargains.

You may note that I only listed 13 clubs; I alternate between a 4 hybrid (set with the 3) and a 4 iron (set with the irons) depending on where/how I am playing.

The driver I got used on Callaway Pre-owned and I upgraded the shaft myself. I got the RBZ 3wood used on 2nd swing. The Burner hybrid and Cleveland wedge were hand-me-downs from my father. The Bettinardi & Tommy Armour wedges were bought during sales at 2nd Swing & Golf Galaxy respectively. And my current least favorite club of the putter was under $50 on RockBottom. 

I would love to upgrade most of this bag, but I am a golfer on a budget. If I can choose to spend my money either playing or on high-end gear, I will pick playing. I have fallen in love with the Sub70 brand and that is where I am tending to lead towards upgrading the bag. Any thoughts and or suggestions are welcome. I am really looking for a new putter, I love the White Hot series by Odyssey, but I will give anything a try (hello?! you see what is in the bag?!?! lol).

I’d say that’s a good setup for being on a budget. I started out the exact same way, looking for deals to get my first bag together and that contributed to me loving this game.
