Alright guys, time to fess up: how many clubs in your bag have switched already since you decided on your bag setup for this year? I'm not talking about those of you who have rotation clubs (driving iron vs. hybrid for certain courses, etc.). I'm talking about clubs that have been benched for more or less steady replacements.

For me, it's two:

  • I like the Adams dHy, but when I gave it more reps on the simulator, my older Callaway XR Pro 20° hybrid beat it out for consistently hitting that gap in my bag.
  • I also grabbed the Odyssey Big Seven Toe Up from Callaway Pre-owned just before the season started, and it's been in my bag for most of my rounds. It's not pretty, but I'm putting just fine with it so far.

I also tweaked my driver setup: I cut down a Project X HZRDUS Smoke Black shaft an inch, and I've been using that with my driver set at 10° and the weight all the way in the toe.

What you have changed up in your bag this season?

Since this year has been abnormal for me in relation to golf, I'm playing about a quarter as much as I normally do at this point.  I'm going to take a liberty extend back to the end of last year.  

I'm with you at two(ish). Second has been a tryout basis, with one standout holding the starting position.

  • The old blue crowned vapor fly 3w went to the bench early this year in favor of a Mavrik 3w, which has added some needed consistency in the fairway wood slot, and has comfortably created a much better gap over my hybrid/long irons.  
  • The big surprise is the putter.  I've gone from my ER2 w/ gravity grip to an OG Ping Anser w/ Ping blackout pp58 pistol grip.  

Evnroll has held a firm spot in the bag for 2 years and while I was playing great (for me) golf at the end of last year I kept having consistency issues with the putter.  Out of frustration I tried a couple of different sticks that are sitting in the bullpen and have landed on a putter that is close to twice my age, with no sight lines/dots or anything.  My make percentage has gone up notably, and my consistency from inside 20 feet has increased notably; this is all with about 10% of the practice that I would normally devote time to.  

A couple things I have noted is that the OG Anser is MUCH lighter than the ER2 (320ish headweight compared to 370).  And the lie angle seems to be more upright.  With the limited amount of golf I've been able to enjoy this year, I don't feel like I am fighting the Anser as much as I felt I was the ER2.  I would like to eventually have the ER2 fit/adjusted and continue the putter battle, but that will have to wait for now.

3H out...TM SIM UDI 2-iron in.  The hybrid just was going the distance I needed to fill the gap between 3W & 4-iron.  The funny thing is, I went to the local golf shop to look for a 60* wedge...saw some utility irons in the pre-owned bag and hit 3 different ones and decided on the TM.

Still don't have the 60*, but I'm doing well with what I have in the wedge department.

Speedzone Extreme driver gone…sold, replaced by PXG 0211 and man has it performed.

Tour Edge CBX119 4H replaced by Hogan VKTR 4H replaced by Cobra King F8 3H w/Recoil shaft. Only hybrid I can control the draw with.

Callaway Epic GBB gone, PING G425 Max driver in

Callaway Epic Flash 3 wood gone - PING G425 Max 5 Wood in - Couldn't hit the 3 wood to save my life. 

Put the AW from my set back in for the Vokey 50 degree, and that meant I had to change my wedges to match better, 54 for versatile shots and full swing, and a 58 k grind for tough bunker shots and fluffy lies.  

As my game is far from being great, I needed to settle for more forgiving options.

It would be easier to list the clubs I haven't changed!  Here's what's new.

  • Ping i210 4-PW with Project X 6.0
  • Ping Glide 3.0 50* 
  • Ping Glide 3.0 54*
  • Ping Glide 3.0 58*
  • Titleist TSi2 9* with HAZRDUS Smoke Black RDX

Can't possibly put new clubs in an old bag so I got a new Ping Hoofer stand bag.

Since clubs that are in the rotation do not count, I do not have any of the same clubs. Gone are the M5 Driver, M6 3 wood, GAPR Hi Hybrid, JPX Hot Metal Pro 4-P and T5 52-56-60 and In are the Pings and Vokey wedges, although the 54* wedge is one I have had for a period of time.

I swap putters based on the speed of the greens. But my “newest” putter is at least 10 years old.

Started with an Odyssey 10 I bought over the winter but have since switched back to the Odyssey red #7.

SLDR is currently out of the bag and I'm gaming a TSi4.  Both have Ventus black.

I will say that SLDR is never far from coming back in though so we will have to wait and see with that one.

Haven't made many changes thus far.  I'm definitely open to new shiny things in the bag, just haven't found anything to push me over the edge just yet to make the purchase. 

I'd be willing to try something different for a putter if I really found something I could have some confidence with.  Fairly happy with my current putter but not over the moon either.  Wedges same thing.  Pretty happy with performance, but there could be something better out there.  

My big year for changes is likely coming next year as I think I'll be getting new irons and a new driver.  In the past, I've traded my old stuff in, I don't think I'll do that this go around since I think I have pretty good equipment.  Hearing myself say that out loud makes me rethink doing anything.  I'm just going to take my indecisive self off off here.....

So far I added a PXG Gen 3 driver replacing my Cobra F8+.  I was carrying an m5 3 hybrid, went to and old Adams 4 hybrid but now have a 7 wood in that slot.  I ordered a Titleist 5 wood to try that in my F6 + 3/4 wood slot.  If you aren't tweaking you are not golfing and some setups work better on certain courses.  Got to just love this game.

Ordered the new Titleist TSi3 10.0 with a Fujikura Tour Speeder Pro 64S shaft three weeks ago to replace my 917D2 10.5 with the same shaft.  Picked up ten yards during the fitting.  Long and straight.  Just what my doctor's ordered.  Other clubs functioning well.  After surgery, finally getting some sort of a swing/tempo back.  Used Prov1 during fitting, same ball I game.  Should be in any time, no worries on delivery, considering what's going on worldwide with deliveries.  The 917 is still a great club.

I put my Ping G25 irons back in my bag. I have two sets of irons, the Pings and PXG 0211s. I plan on switching between the two sets just because. I honestly don’t see much difference in distance and the Pings may be slightly more forgiving. The PXGs though, when hit well though feel great.

So I finally traded my 5 wood after a year of just no good results and bad juju. A hybrid will be joining the bag, I just need to figure out which one. TE CBX 119 seems the leader in the clubhouse, but will consider other options right now.

I am a Titleist hardcore loyalist but I have to say that I moved the T100s out of the bag for Mizuno JPX Tour with my trusty C-Taper 120 shafts and they have been incredible. I messed around with the lofts (2 weak) and the lie (2 Flat) on the T100's and wanted to go back to standard....now they just felt off to me. 

Rest of the bag:

TSi4 Driver, TSi2 3 and 5 wood. Vokey 50-54-58 and Futura 6M Custom (Mid-Long) used as an Arm lock.
