Lots of new stuff the past month, new bag, new irons, new wedges, new putter. Funny story with the putter, it's not mine. Buddy lent it to me in Scottsdale when I couldn't get my bags out of airport s

So.. some changes going into 2014 for me. I ditched the TM MC's for some more forgiveness and got the G25's, got the G25 fairway 3 wood, titleist 913 hybrid, and got a Ping cart bag instead of the Oakley carry bag I had. The bag is fantastic, the 14 way divider was very much needed since my grips were being torn apart constantly. Putter well is also a nice touch. I've always wanted a staff bag but never felt comfortable getting one then I saw this bag and it looks like the best of both worlds. Anyway, enjoy the pics and let me know what you think! btw, if you don't have a frogger towel, seriously consider getting one!

My revised bag of clubs with no re-sale value.  4W is new this year, Driver new as of the end of last year.  Driver shortened to 44.75". [URL=http://thesandtrap.com/content/type/61/id/91139/] [/URL]

Bag looks awesome.

Thanks Tristan, I am very happy with the set.

No, he was just referring to the bag itself.  The clubs look like crap. :-P

Seriously though ... how often do you use (and how happy are you with) your utility iron?

My bad. :-D

I have a love hate thing going with hybrids, and a standard three iron is pretty tough to get through the rough, especially with my swing speed.  I looked at when I actually use a three iron.  I mainly use one on long par threes and on sometimes on par fives and fours every once and a while.  I can't hit a hybrid off a tee for s***, and a standard three iron is tougher out of the rough.  So I chose the utility iron because I mainly just use it off the tee.

Very happy with it off the tee, wish I could get a little more height like a hybrid out of the rough BTW.

I am in a similar situation right now.  I'm getting a little better with my hybrid, but for the most part, it gets used very rarely.  I could definitely see the benefit of the utility club as a driving iron since I could use it in place of my 4 iron and probably gain 20 yards while still gaining accuracy over my 3 wood or driver.  But the rare occasions when I do use my hybrid sometimes involve hitting it out of the rough, and I doubt the utility club would be easier out of the rough than the hybrid.  And I have one more wedge than you so I couldn't carry both the hybrid and utility club.

Yeah is definitely will not, for me though and the courses that I play, there is even one nine where I use it back to back off the tee on two holes so it just made sense for me.  If I never used it off the tee I might not use it.  I do find more accuracy out of the fairway though as well with the utility vs a hybrid.

And I have one more wedge than you so I couldn't carry both the hybrid and utility club.

When I was fit for the Edel wedges I made the decision to go to just three wedges, for the flexibility up top and I am really happy with that.  The versatility there with the Driver, Driveway, 4W and Utility Iron choices is more valuable to me.

Yeah, I could totally see myself doing that.  47-52-57 makes loads of sense to me and it would leave room for something like the driving iron, or perhaps even a 5 wood.

Right now, I'm at 45.5, 50, 54.5, 59.  I could switch to your setup and also probably bump the 7, 8 and 9 irons each down a degree to keep better gaps.

Yeah that was something I spoke with @iacas at length about when we did the fitting and ordered the wedges.  I needed to make room for the Diveway, 4W and 3iron. My 9 iron is 41 so the wedges fit pretty well.  The one slight drawback is that there is about a 15 yard gap between my nine iron and each wedge after.  I am very comfortable with partial wedge shots though, so for me it is not a problem.  Wedge shots are probably now the strongest part of my game.  As far as the 57 goes, I don't find I need anything with more loft than that.   And I use it for almost everything around the green.

Thinking about going to Edel? ;-)

Not wedges yet.  My irons are too new and work just fine.  I think I might be able to chop off a fraction of a stroke - maybe 1/2 - by switching, just to have a few degrees more bounce and eliminate those occasions where I chunk a pitch.  On the other hand, I'm getting better at the technique and if I just remember to keep my weight forward and keep my speed, I can do it just fine with my current wedge.

I am dying to get a putter though. :)

    • You just posted what looks to be relatively current information.  It seems somewhere between possible and likely that boosters will be advisable, but details are lacking as variants keep occurring and data is continually being collected.  Stay tuned.  What seems more important is that more and more people get vaccinated to slow the spread and decrease the likelihood of additional variants.  
    • I had a worst shot yesterday. Our 2some invited the 3some behind us to join us to play #9, the last hole of our round. It was a 152 yd par 3,fairly straight forward. Wanting to make a good showing to the 3some, I hit first. I was having a decent round, but I topped the ball 50 yds then slinked back to my cart. I did get a bogie, and strangely enough, nobody bettered the 4.
    • 50, 54, 58 for me. The 54 sw is very easy to get out of the sand with, and often times rather be in sand then rough because of it. 58 for lobs over sand and elevated greens. I only use the 58 when I have to. 
    • Any other info on Covid booster shots?    Covid boosters in the fall? As calls grow for third shots, here's what you need to know Coronavirus vaccine booster shots will likely be needed in the fall, according to experts. Here's what we know so far.  
    • We got some rain last week, hopefully some here in the near future as well.
