I found Nike's vapor drivers actually surprisingly good. I played one this summer when I had to rent clubs once. It performed pretty darn well. Not as great as my normal Callaway driver, but pretty close. I wasn't really expecting to like that club (at all, really).

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 security. Putted well with it that day and he said I could keep it 😎 Had some great putting rounds with it since.

Using the new i210 irons for a couple weeks. Five rounds in, five rounds under par. Was due for some new wedges (was using standard sole Glide 2.0 wedges) so experimenting with the Glide 2.0 wide sole 54 and 58. Went to stronger lofts with the wedges since the i210's go about a half club farther.

Love the i210 U-wedge, exactly the kind of club I was looking for.

For what it's worth, I have a Nike driver, irons, and putter, and I'm pretty happy with them all.

Here’s my anachronistic bag. Fairly modern in the woods, hybrids and wedges, but antique irons and putter.

 

Driver- Callaway Big Bertha Alpha

3W-Titleist 913F 15°

3H-Callaway X2Hot 19°

Irons- Wilson Staff FG-17, 3-9 iron (Soon to be joined by PW)

SW-Vokey 54°

LW-Cleveland RTX 2.0 60°

Putter-Wilson Staff 8813

 

I swap the iron sometimes with a set of 1988 Wilson Staff Goosenecks that are in basically pristine condition. The chrome is beautiful and I hit them fairly well, but they don’t have the same sweet feel as the FG-17s, so these are my primary set.

Here's my bag. Lots of Callaway, PING Driver and Hybrid, Cobra Wedges and Never Compromise Putter. Don't have any issues with the clubs, still working on my swing (playing for less than 1 year). Have been practicing every week and really loving this sport.

Driver 3W taylormade R580

Hybrid taylormade 3h 19*

irons taylormade t300 3-PW

wedges cleveland rtx-3 (52,56,60)

putter ping remedy 34” 

couldn’t be happier with my set, except my putter it’s a little too light for me but will do until I start playing below 85 consistently.

(Two WITB threads so I’d better post a pic in this one)

Clubs in winter storage mode. Still sorting things out and deciding which wedges to use. The {#} brackets are just my mental note to decide and track what is in the bag and what is in reserve and what is on the way out. TM = Taylormade for when I didn’t spell it out.

I’m sort of undecided on the Vokeys and I haven’t tried the ATV’s yet. And I also have no realistic idea how far I hit any of these clubs since they are all new to me for the most part over the last several years and due to many reasons I haven’t had the time to work with them yet. All part of my 2019 Goals posted in the goals thread.

In The Bag + alternates

{1} Taylormade R15 driver 12* S-flex, 460cc, 57*-61* lie, 45.5" long, D4 swing weight

{2} TaylorMade RBZ Stage 2 Tour 3HL 16.5*

{3} Taylormade M2 Rescue 3H 19*

{4} Taylormade M2 Rescue 4H 22*

{5b} TaylorMade Burner Rescue 5H 25*

 

TaylorMade RocketBladz irons 5-9,PW,AW,SW, steel shafts

{5a} 5-23*

{6} 6-26.5*

{7} 7-30.5*

{8} 8-35*

{9} 9-40*

{10} PW-45*

{11} AW-50*

{12b} SW-55*

{12a} Titleist Vokey SM4 54-11 54*

{13a} Titleist Vokey SM4 60-07 60*

{14} Ping Kirsten 1959 Craz-E putter 35"

{12c} TM ATV 56*

{13b} TM ATV 60*

{3b} Cobra Baffler T-Rail 3H 19*

{4b} Cobra Amp 4H 22*

I picked up a TM Hi-Toe 60degree wedge, pulled out the Vokeys and other alternates, and will go with this setup until I get my distances sorted out.

The first completely new set of clubs I’ve had (all purchased at the same time) in 35 years.  I didn’t set out to necessarily end up with everything from the same brand, but that’s how it worked out, and I’m really pleased with the entire set.

All Titleist except for the TM Spider putter.  TS2 driver and 3-wood, 818 hybrids, AP2’s with KBS Tour 90’s, and Vokey SM7’s.  Lighter weight, softer flex shafts, across the board.

Sorry to resurrect an old post but I’d thought I’d share my budget set up. I put this together for $310 the only thing in this pic I had previously was the odyssey putter. all was bought In the last 3 months, bag included. If I had to pay new prices I don’t think I would have gotten back into the game. Now I just need to learn how to play...72F0F107-382C-4EB2-987C-143A8A71D2F2.thumb.jpeg.d3cbf1f7e6ce670e2fa83cbc8b647c82.jpeg

@jmanbooyaa, what bag is that? It looks super large (could just be that upper pocket throwing me off). I rock an old 2 wheel pull cart (can only push it because the wheels go all wonky if I pull), and my fairly large Titleist lightweight cart bag (14 divider) fits just perfect.

I'll post mine up after I clean my clubs the next time. I tend to play without getting any of the dirt/mud off after shots/rounds/months. Probably not good for the scores, but it is great for playing quick.

@Bonvivant it’s the Sun mountain C-130. That big pocket near the top middle is for a range finder. Lots of pockets on this bag.  Put it on my 4 wheel caddy tech. It fits well. One thing, the damn umbrella holder sticks out a bit and lies on the top of wheel. May need to get a 3 wheel cart now.

I've been contemplating moving in to this millennium and ditching my old 2 wheeled cart. I suppose that I should bring my bag along before I purchase to make sure it fits well. Your bag looks similar to mine (maybe a touch deeper) and it's good to have this info. I bought a pass to the munis around here for the year, but didn't take either of the cart options (50 or 100 rides), so I think that a 3-4 wheeled cart is in order to easy my wrists during the countless rounds I will be playing. When I get my new wheels (and clean my clubs) I will definitely be posting in this thread again. Thanks for the tips!

    • I think that is a common issue with GPS.  I'm not sure about GGP but I believe GPS in general is only accurate within a few feet either direction.  Combine that with the fact that it only knows where your last putt originated form it can only approximate where the pin is.  I think they use something like 2 feet from last putt but I may be wrong there.  I've never worried about the putting distances, just the number of putts.   I've also seen issues with "Tap-in".  Basically I tap in, pickup and move away so quickly that the GPS does not always "Lock-In" near the ball, it registers closer to where I stand to watch the next person putt after I tap-in.  All I need to do to fix that is stand by the hole a little longer to let it "Lock-In" on my location but that would just slow the pace.
    • Day 243: Too humid to work on full swing outside today without sweating buckets. So I did a 2 hour short game practice instead. Started with chipping on all kinds of lies and focused on soft arms and pivot. Also, I slowed down my backswing which is an issue for me. Moved on to putting. Used my tempo app to get my rhythm down at 72 2/4 time. Then  worked on distance control up and down hill.   Next played a little one ball from various lies trying to get up and down. Followed with sand work when the green cleared. Finished with flop shots and downhill lie pitches.
    • I voted to ban just to stir the pot. I won't defend either one although the "asshat" crowd make a valid point. 🙂
    • I have read that putter is a viable option even from 60 yards out at times. Well at least for some people. Not me, though. I struggle to hit my putter 60 feet.
    • It wasn’t good, you’re right.
