Building my new bag


Recommended Posts

I haven't been around in a while but figured an update thread as I build my new bag would be a decent way to make a comeback.

I haven't really updated my bag in awhile and now have the opportunity to make some changes. I'll be updating it over the next year until I have it set the way I'd like it.

I have not gotten fit for any of the new clubs as right now it's not a luxury I can afford but I am a big proponent of custom fitting. I have selected heads that offer forgiveness and some adjustability where needed while also providing the aesthetics that I like to see near the ball. I have selected shafts that I feel will work the best for my swing based on the research I've done.

To date I have ordered a new driver, which I have received already (see pictures) and ordered new irons and wedges. I will be finishing out the bag with a new putter, 2 more wedges, 2 hybrids, and a fairway over the next few months to a year.

My new driver (pictures included): 

PXG 0811XF Gen4

Loft - 10.5°

Length - 45"

Shaft - Mitsubishi Diamana S+ 60g R

Grip - PXG Z5 Black Midsize

My new irons:

PXG 0311T Gen3 (5 - 9)

Loft - Stock on 5 - 8, 1° strong on 9

Length - +0.5"

Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R

Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize

My new wedges:

TaylorMade MG3 (PW & GW)

Loft - 45° PW (1° Strong) & 50° GW (Stock)

Length - +0.5"

Shaft - Mitsubishi MMT 70g R

Grip - GolfPride Tour Velvet Midsize

Will post pics of the new irons and wedges when they arrive.

I know PXG is coming out with a new driver. It is already on the conforming list and John Daly played one last week in the PGA.

I have seen some of those TM wedges look pretty good === Now I have not hit one or even seen one at address but they seem to be pretty decent

Yeah I saw an article on that the other day. I suspect it's probably a tour prototype or tour spec of sorts as it looks quite different to the new Gen5 drivers that just launched.

But the Gen4 was at a much better price point so I ended up going with it. Was actually cheaper than previous year models from the big OEMs.

MG3 won the Most Wanted Wedge last year so can't go too wrong with that. I'll be finishing out my wedges with 2 more MG3s with the TW grind 56° (I'll be getting it 1° strong 55) and 60° wedges.

I'll have to wait a little while on those as I'd like to revamp the putter first, then hybrids and fairways as I do have some decent high lofted wedges already.

Cool sounds like you know exactly what you need and have thought it out well

New putter is here.

50° wedge is backordered due to supply chain issues at TM. Estimated build date is July 25.
