Finally, my set is complete.

8 posts in this topic

Just thought that I'd share what's in my bag. I've been working really hard on putting together my ideal set and it's finished. I'm a big Taylormade fan but that doesn't mean that I didn't try out other brands and models. Here's what's in my bag:

1) Driver - R9 Super-Tri (I bought this club 1 and a half years ago and I love it. Not leaving my bag yet.)

2) Taylormade RBZ 3 Wood Tour 14.5*

3) Cleveland CG Black 7 Wood

4) Irons - Taylormade Rocketbladez Tour 4 - PW

5) Wedges - Taylormade ATV 52* Gap Wedge and ATV 60* Lob Wedge

6) Putter - Odyssey White Ice D.A.R.T. Blade

Shafts on irons and wedges are KBS Tour stiff. Driver is stock Fujikura Motore stiff. 3 Wood is stock Matrix Ozik stiff and the 7 wood has a stock Miyazaki C. Kua stiff. Grips on all clubs except the putter are Golf Pride Tour Velvet. Love my set.

What's in your bag and is anyone working on getting certain clubs to complete it? Let us know.

Cool ... but those words are boring.     You should take a bunch of pictures and post them here in our "amateur golf porn" thread:

Hmmm, still room for a sand wedge??

Possibly. Anything from 60 yards and in I use my lob wedge religiously. My short game is the better part of my game so maybe adding an extra tool will give me more options; close the gap between my 52* and 60*. I've always lived by the old adage, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." Still a possibility though.

I wonder if the lob wedge is always the best option.. I used to until I practised a chip and run watching a 2 handicapper by the chipping green. watched him unobtrusively for 30 mins, asked him about how and what used, he gave me 10 mins about what he attempts to do (hitting down on a 52* wedge, smoothly through with body turn and not just arms, slightly but not overly hands forward) and quite soon those shots where it was appropriate i.e. nothing in between me and the green meant I was getting tap ins and not just be glad to be on the green. just my thoughts

I hear ya. That is a shot that I would like to add to my arsenal. The more options you have and the more creative you are around the green, the better position you are in when it comes to putting out. I'm open to learning new shots but right now, my 60* works wonders for me. Not always mind you and that's when a chip and run comes in handy. It's not that I don't know how to execute the shot, it's learning distance control that's the problem right now for a chip and run. Practice, practice, practice.
