Ive had the same putter for 20 years.  just some junk brand i bought at the canadian tire for probably 25 bucks.  it's a mallet putter and the grip is starting to get slick, but Im making more putts now, so I guess thats all that matters lol

I like to tinker with my bag setup, but only at the top end. Driver and 5 iron through wedges have always been in my bag (the loft of my wedges has changed, but it's always been 4 wedges). With the 3 clubs I have left at the top end of my bag, I've played with the following clubs:

  • 3 wood
  • 3.5 wood
  • 5 wood
  • 2 hybrid
  • 3 iron
  • 4 hybrid
  • 4 iron

I currently play with a 3.5 wood, which is a 3 wood I increased the loft on, a 3 iron, and a 4 iron. I'll sometimes swap the 2 hybrid out for the 3 iron, but that's rare. 

For a long time, I played with a 3 wood, 5 wood, and 4 hybrid instead. But when I got my newest irons, I decided to get up to a 3 iron, and haven't looked back. For the most part...

10 year old clubs!  I can't make it 10 months without some sort of change, usually shafts, wedges or putters.  Last year it was driving irons vs hybrids.  Never know where you might find "the one" thing.  Pretty sure doesn't really make a difference, but you can never underestimate how a shinny new weapon makes you feel.

I’m just about to go and pick up my new Taylor Made P790. These things are just outright sexy with a capital S.

I previously used Titleist 695 mb. 2008 model.

For now, my 2006 Ping G5’s have been faithfully forgiving - looking to upgrade next year with mixed set of i500 longer irons and i210 scoring irons.

I am playing Adams Idea A3 irons, whenever those came out. Driver and 3W are newer though, recently replacing my original Big Berthas.

A little bit.  I have dropped the 3 and 4 irons and replaced them with a 4 hybrid.  Also, I have dropped the 3 and 5 woods from my bag, but that is more because they aren't great clubs to play with.  I am ideally looking to buy a new 3 and 5 wood, or possibly a 4 wood to replace them

I personally like Cobra woods/metals, you may want to look and try them. I use there 3W, 5W, 7W and driver. My irons are Clevelands

The only changes of that type ive made in the past 10-15 years is dropping the 5w in favor of a 18 degree hybrid and the 3i for a 22 degree hybrid. The original 18 degree hybrid i was using i just replaced about a year and a half ago because the hosel cracked. Aside from that my set up and lofts haven't changed. The next change i might make is dropping the 4i for a 24 or 25 degree hybrid because ive lost some speed. But im not quite there, yet. I can still get a 4i up in the air pretty good.

Everything in my bag is less than 3 years old. I basically rebooted In 2017 after a long hiatus, so I started putting together a new bag to replace my clubs from 2006.

My bag is about the same as it's been for decades. I used to just carry 12 clubs: driver, two fairways (3 & 5), 4-GW irons, SW and putter. I recently added a 7 fairway. Also, my Odyssey White Hot Tour #1 putter is around eleven years old.

The only old thing is me. Most of my clubs are a few years old and the only new one is 18 months old. My Taylor Made hybrids are close to ten years old though.

As they say, people who struggle with putting have a closet full of putters. My buddy was lights out with some no-name ancient putter but he was bent on getting a new one. Now he struggles.

10 years ago+ 

Ping G3’s

Today

mizuno 18 blades. 
 

playing blades was a bad decision for my score but at least I can tell when I’m not dead center - hooray I guess. I will probably switch to CB’s

Mine has changed considerably,  but I wasn't a serious golfer for most of the time. Went from 1960s blades and persimmons and a 2 sided putter to 2002 blades, 917 woods (818 hybrid) and a modern ping anser putter.

Dropped the 3 Wood and the 4 and 5 irons.  Went to 4 and 5 hybrids (Callaway XHot2s) and added another wedge.  At 66 years of age it is all about getting the short game going.
