Hey everybody!

I’m new to the forum but I can already tell this is my kind of site! Here’s my WITB:

Driver: 9.5 Degree Titleist TS3 with a senior flex. I’m probably the only 26 yr old 7 handicapper who uses as senior flex shaft in their driver but the driver was given to me with the shaft already in it, and much to my surprise I hit it really good with a high draw 😂. That being said, I’m going to keep hitting bombs until something changes

3 Wood: Exotics CBX 15 degree, regular shaft. Picked this up in the simulator about a year ago and man did that thing feel good. Bought it right on the spot. Love the club

Hybrid: Cobra F Max 3H 19 degree, regular shaft. Very forgiving and feels super comfy on anything from a lay up on a par 5 to a 210 par 3 over water.

Irons: 

5-PW-  I finally pulled the trigger on a new set of Taylormade Sim2 Max with regular steel shafts a few months ago. They feel like butter off the face and have good control especially for a game improvement iron. The lofts are a little jacked up compared to my old set, but who doesn’t want 10-15 extra yards on their irons?! Overall I would definitely recommend giving these a try

Wedges- 56 degree Cleveland CG16. Been my weapon of choice around the greens for a while and can’t seem to get rid of it.

Putter- Odyssey White Hot Blade Putter 34”. Had this putter for a while and lead to some nice days on the greens.

Golf Ball- Love playing Prov1 but then again who doesn’t if you got a little extra coin laying around on your trip to the golf store. Just recently put the TM Tour response into play after hearing about it on the podcast I listen to and it felt really nice. Spun well around the greens and didn’t cost me any distance on longer shots. For $35 a dozen I might be playing this ball more often.

Look forward to hearing some of yalls thoughts!

At a 7 handicap, your setup seems to work for you.  Would not change anything.  I am 75 and play the same driver with a 10.75 loft, with a Fujukura Speeder Tour Pro 64 S shaft.  That is one great driver.

Great to have confidence in your clubs.  Every club in the bag is a personal decision. No one plays them but you and most would trade handicaps in a heartbeat.  Love the CBX. I have the CBX T3 and am confident 100% of the time with it.

Was great playing with you and your dad (and using your clubs) last week! I'm glad you're on MGS and I look forward to reading your post!
