Titleist - without a doubt. Only non-Titleist club in my bag right now is a Nike Ignite 410. Otherwise it's Titleist all the way, wouldn't give up my wedges or putter for anything.

TITLEIST.


If it was just irons, I would pick the irons I have now. Yonex ADX Tours from like 10 years ago. I absolutely love these irons! I have had 4 sets of them to date....Ive also owned a ton of other new sets of irons along the way, but I always fall back on these irons.

Titleist.

Mizuno is a close 2nd as I love their irons, but I couldn't part with my 905 and am currently switching to Vokey wedges. Also, the set before my Pro-II's were Titleist DCI's and I know that Titleist makes solid irons as well.

I think from driver to putter Titleist makes the best clubs.

hands down titleist. i play the 962s, the 905T, 2 of 3 wedges are Vokeys, my hybrid is titleist and my putter is as close to the cameron studio design 2.5 as you can get - i'm willing to take donations for this one .

I don't play their fairway woods (although i've got those) because I hit my Ping I2 3-wood far too well. I am waiting for them to make a 18/19 degree wood hybrid to throw in my bag.

Mizuno doesn't have TP Mills for putters anymore - So I'd have to mix up my bag.

But if that's not allowed then I suppose I'd be going Titleist

I'd have to say Taylormade in the following setup

R7 TP 9.5°
V-Steel 15°
Rescue TP 19°
RAC Hybrid Iron (Japan Issue) 22°
5-PW LT (original)
RAC Y-Cutter 51°, 56°, 60°
Mezza Monza

I use mostly Taylor Made.. I don't really care about brand to be honest. I use what looks good and feels good to me.

Driver: 510TP 7.5º Speeder 757 X flex
Fairway wood: Sonartec 13º stock shaft Stiff.
RescueTP 16º DG S-400 stock shaft
Irons: 3-pw Taylor Made TP combo set
54º Rac Black
60º Cleveland CG10
Putter Scotty Cameron 2002 Studio Design 1


I have only ever used 3 sets of irons. 1983 MacGregor MT ColorChrome Copper face irons. 2-PW, Calaway Bobby Jones Blades 2-PW and my current set.. I figure is about 6,7 years Ill get a new set. I don't change clubs to often. I do change Drivers about every 3 years..I replace my wedges every other year. Every year If I play alot.

No, the question is "

A bit different to everybody elses choices.

But judging by what clubs in my bag i hit my best shots with, i would go with the La Jolla knife series.

I have the 3 & 5 woods, and these i hit shots i could never dream about with my old woods.

To be fair though, ive not tried titliest irons and woods, well besides to 260.04 Wedge i have. The feel of this wedge though is great, and i look forward to saving the money to be able to have a go with a set :)

Here's some more discussion FWIW. If I absolutely had to stick with one company's clubs it would again be Titleist. The only gripe I've got with them which should soon be remedied is that they don't have an answer to the hybrid question. My current set up performs well and looks great to my eye. I like the whole Titleist image too. Golf snob = good.

I'm sure I could easily find a Scotty to replace the my Olivia putter even though she would be sorely missed . I'm looking forward to the release of the 905R, Titleist's contribution to the VW Bug on a stick driver. From what I hear it sets up nicely and doesn't look too big at address, but we'll see. So I have plenty of reason to stay with these sticks.

I have a major need for wood shaft upgrade. I am way to strong for these regular shafts... wish I'd have gone with stiff-flex to start with.

As you say, yes, that'll change soon. Technically the 503.H is a hybrid, of course, but an iron-like one and not a wood-like one.

I'm sure you could as well. I should have brought the Futura Phantom for you to try... if you like mallets.

I'm looking forward to the release of the 905R, Titleist's contribution to the VW Bug on a stick driver.

Well now, the R is said to be just an upgraded (larger) T, and I seem to recall you have a T now... So it really may not do too much differently.

You're going with hickory?

Your irons are "R" also, aren't they? Yeah, I kinda wish I'd asked more questions or looked at video before I sent out all the orders for ya... you're nowhere near an R.

Yeah, the whole freaking set it R... live and learn. I'll upgrade as much of that as I can. I'll probably end up re-shafting the woods first and wait till I win the lottery for the rest of the set.

I got fitted at Puetz golf and in retrospect I see they didn't take me seriously or didn't know what the crap they were talking about. I was right on the line between regular and stiff and they recommended regular based on a few swings with a five iron. They didn't even have me swing a driver and I didn't know any different at the time. Ugggghhh!

As for hickory, I think we should be playing the game as it was meant to be played... hickory shafts and nickers... er, not.

Mizuno for me. No Bridgestone up there though.

I'd consider Hogan, but now that they're Callaway, I don't know, kinda loses the Hogan mystique.

Taylor Made- number 1 driver, number 1 FW, number 1 Irons, number 1 rescues on the PGA tour.. I think if the best players in the world pick TM then there ok in my book too.. Oh ya I will suffer and use the wedges and putters too..

I don't understand why you'd say that using their wedges and putters equals to suffering... the rac y-cutters are sweet, as far as feel, look and spin goes - compete with any of the top wedges out there. Putters are very decent too - and priced much better than the over-hyped Scotty's products. My bag is 100% TM and I don't feel the pain you're talking about

    • I've been Playing Golf for: Almost 30 years. I started when I was 22.  My current handicap index or average score is: A mess right now. 2 years ago I got my handicap below 8, but right now I don't feel like I could even break 100. Thus this thread.  My typical ball flight is: Fade The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: For 15 years I fought a snaphook. I played a draw, but when it went badly golf was no longer fun. So, the last 5 years or so, I've played what I hoped was a power fade. Now however I'm trying to eliminate the weak fade with the driver and the hosel rocket with my irons. (The hosel shot sucks as much as the snaphook used to.) Videos:  Before I get to the videos. Here's some stuff I'm working on:  And and Now some video: I know this is shot in my basement. But I just can't get any time to get to the range. So, I figured I could at least use this to practice taking video. I attempted to shoot this straight down the toe line.   This is the caddie view.    I realized I was a little close the camera. So, I tried to do the Caddie View again. Of course I realize I still have a way to go. These swings are far from perfect. They are, however, perfect examples of where my swing is right now. 
    • I'm in the market for a new hybrid and am looking for suggestions.  Let me start by saying that I am a notorious cheapskate and always looking to maximize value. So I started out looking at a generation older club to save some money and was debating between the Ping 410 ($169 new) and the Callaway Epic Flash ($199).  I had kind of settled on the Callaway figuring that the fact that it was a bit newer and adjustable where the Ping wasn't so therefore worth the extra $20,  Then I started to wonder is a new Callaway Mavrik might be worth the extra $50 over the Flash.  Unfortunately I don't know if I'll have much luck demoing the older clubs as the stores tend not to keep older demo clubs around.  Best I could probably do it tape up a new club, so I'm not sure I can tell much from hitting them. So, can anyone provide any feedback on the clubs I'm considering, or are there better options? 
    • I used to have a really high ball flight. it was pretty routine for the ball to be in or an inch from the pitch mark. I have several pics I took over the years of the ball embedded in the green. I KNEW where my wedges would land. Injuries have altered my swing and now I have a lot less arc. On a completely unrelated note, I tend to hit a club weaker than I used to and routinely see the ballrun off the green at which point I mutter aspersions against the green not holding...truth is, I needed that trajectory to control my distance.   that is the best reason I can imagine for a high trajectory...distance control.
    • Any golfer can get fitted for their golf clubs, it's a matter of how much you'll be getting out of the fitting session. For a relatively new golfer to the game, the benefit might not be as obvious as someone have been playing the game for awhile.  How can you fit a golfer when the golfer's game is still evolving and changing ?  So, you might get some benefit out of the equipment fitting if you don't expect the fitting to change your game drastically. I caution using the word drastically, because going from a 12 handicap index to an 8 is a drastic change in relative short time.  Going from a 23 index to a 15 in one season is drastic.  Going from an 8 index  to a 2 will also be drastic in a short timing. Most the golfers will never drop below a double digit index if they're only the weekend warriors . Imagine giving a relatively new driver a world class sports car..... how much can the driver do with it ?   But.... if one has the dough to blow, why not pretend he is the F1 driver.
    • Like I said before, I’m not a good player, plus I only play once a week. Our local  dealer wanted $875 for a 6-A wedge. I wound up buying a used set of 714 AP1’s in great shape from a guy in a neighboring town. They are a 5-A wedge, but I’m going to re-grip them,  so I’ll be all in at about $310. Those T300 irons sure are nice looking though.
