Hello everyone, new here from outside of Memphis TN.

I play anywhere I can, havent been playing very long, but have manged to get my handicap from 25+ down to 13-14 over the winter. I attribute this completely to a club change and a reset of my swing, I stopped trying to kill the ball and developed a nice smooth tempo swing that is repeatable with a good release.

I used to hit with an old set of Wilsons that are probably 1970s models but now in the bag are:

Taylor Made RAC CGB irons with graphite shafts(totally changed my game)
Cleveland Launcher 10.5 (I leave it at home, cant hit it)
Taylor Made Burner FWs, 3 wood is now my driver until I learn to hit a driver, at least its straight and I can get 210-220 out of it swinging nice and easy, better than 240 and in the woods
Cleveland CG14 56 wedge
Adams Sand wedge

There are still a few things I can improve in my game, mainly putting and driving. If I could just putt I could get into the 70s driving with the 3 wood and based on iron play. I love the RAC CGBs, hit the ball sky high and straight as an arrow, totally predictable.

I hit a set of Adams CB2s today and could not believe how they felt, it was like the ball exploded off the face. These may be in the bag in the next month or so, now that I am improving and getting a little more serious about the game and progress.

    • Great idea @cipher, yep I'm definitely interested.
    • Day 49 - More swings working on my new setup. 
    • Hello everyone. The golf gods have pulled me back in, and I’m hoping it will stick this time. Just scheduled my first lesson in over a decade, so maybe some financial investment will help keep me in the game. Here are a couple of swings from tonight. Now that I’m back, still working on getting more depth in the backswing.    9i DTL: 60-70 yard LW DTL: Plan is to get a couple of lessons and then a fitting. These clubs are too short and 17 years old at this point. The instructor fits Mizuno and Ping, and the new Hot Metals Pros look great. The new Ben Hogan’s are also quite attractive, but I won’t have a fitting option. 
    • As someone who plays roughly 6 month of the year with rain gear I feel qualified to say, most, if not all rain gear is an enormous struggle to fit.    Let’s start with pants. They are ALWAYS too long with a waist that is not matching, usually too small. Foot-Joys pants are lousy elastic in the waist and I have to wear a clip at the bottom to avoid dragging my pants all over the golf course. Nike has the best in my opinion. Sizing is easier and not ridiculously long length.    Jackets rarely offer much “give”. Most are hard to swing in. I have purchased the $250 top of the line, same problem. I recommend undersizing as many of the good brands will do a fair amount of stretching. Foot-Joy when undersized is good, also I like Nike undersized also. Nike has quite a bit of give and is the best in my opinion.  I also have an Under Armour that gives nicely too.    I don’t like pullovers but that is probably personal preference. Hard to get on and off easily. Don’t get me started on zippers. Foot-Joy has nice zippers, everyone skimps there and it is the first place the jacket begins to break down. 
    • Augusta National giving patrons rare chance to purchase merchandise online For the first time, Augusta National is offering online shopping -- but only to patrons who are on... Seems like all of us could find someone with tickets and get Masters gear. I had a friend go in 2010 and my hat could use an upgrade.
