I have decided that I will be going into the 2012 season with the same clubs I will end the season with. No new driver, no new woods, no new irons, wedges, or putters. Enough is enough. I will be re-gripping all my clubs and hopefully won't have to again till at least September. Anyone else barring down and going to attempt to stick to their current set up? A slight caveat I am having a new shaft put into my driver before the re-gripping.

I'm saying exactly the same thing!! Just got new irons, woods and putter this year. Always looking for the next best thing to help my game, but in the end if I know the real reason is that I like getting new toys! Not anymore - I'm sticking with what I now have for the ENTIRE 2012 season - honest!!! ;-)

Actually, I'm trying to find a way to get RID of my clubs. I want some new sticks. somethin shiny, just so I can pound 'em into some dirt

...................but maybe that explains why I won't be getting new clubs unless I scrape together $400

I wont be buying any new clubs, but my *bench* bag is large enough that I may switch in and out some hybrids and/or wedges.

But with a new driver bought for me in August, I dont see any more club purchases unless the wife hits the lottery this year.

I made this same resolution for 2011; I made it and my game is no worse off because of it. Now that 2012 is almost here, I may be looking for a new driver this year

I hadn't planned on buying anything this year, but......  I had just bought myself a Cleveland Classic putter right before Christmas, and after playing a couple rounds with it have come to really like it.  At about the same time, I pieced together a new putter for my Dad.  I played around with it during our last round, and it's freaking awesome!!  After we got home, I promptly ordered parts to put together an identical one for myself.

So, that's it.  I have no desire to change my irons or wedges at this point.  I have several drivers that I've built up and a couple fairways that I like and can swap out when the mood strikes.

very good resolution !

there's always gonna be some new and exiting clubs coming out but you must resist. Don't waste your time and money, a set of clubs should last YEARS and new clubs will not improve your game to any great extent.

I can dig the resolution!  Sounds like a winner to me.  I MAY reshaft one of my long hybrids or short woods, but I'm not shelling out any money this year for equipment other than some Pro-V1Xs and gloves.  This set up got me knocking on a single diget handicap, and with a little bit more course time I will break through.  Enough is enough on the spending.  I am soooo over the "Hotlist", though I think it is quite usable for the beginner or transitioning player.

No new changes for me either.  Getting a 3-wood, which I've been missing in my bag for several years.  Other than that, I won't be changing anything... unless I can find an Odyssey Protoype putter for a great price.  No changes in irons, driver or wedges though.

... it's unbelievable how often new clubs just seem to appear in the golf bag ... or so I tell my wife who is almost as avid about golf as I am, so I can get away with it (most of the time).    I'm such a club ho & I think you're exactly right - through much trial and error, I have settled on equipment that works well for me & it's time to just focus on what I have & to hit each club well.

Trying to get rid of a couple sets of clubs. Unless something breaks, the only changes I'll make in 2012 involve rearranging what's in the basement. Regripping and lofts&lies; doesn't count.

    • It’s not that he “can’t “ throw. It is more that in these playoffs, they have chosen not to throw much. Jimmy G can throw effectively, but SF strength has been the run game lately with their zone blocking. KC is the opposite, a great passing team, but their stock run game is average. Mahomes has been their leading rusher this post season. I think it will be a good matchup.
    • Posted this in the goal thread, but thought I would copy it here, as well, so that I can easily reference it and be held accountable. Goals: Keep a single-digit handicap. I got down to a 9.1 last year (8.9 now with the handicap system change) from an 18.4 at the beginning of the year, but a stretch during the summer where I played or went to the range pretty much daily is bringing that down. I'm probably between a 9-12 or somewhere in there, so I want to improve to the point where I can stay in the single digits. Break 80 over 18 holes and break par on 9 holes. I've shot an 81 for a full round and even par on 9 holes, but never broken either benchmark. Win at least one half of our men's league. We break the league into two seasons and then the winners face off, so I want to win one of the seasons to have a chance to play for the overall title. Fix my attitude on the course. I am a super perfectionist and I get way too upset over bad shots, which often leads to another bad shot. I also know it can be frustrating to play with people who are overly negative, so I want to improve my on-course demeanor. How: Get lessons for the first time. I have never taken lessons, so I plan on starting that as the Michigan golf season gets closer. I hope to get one every month or two, depending on finances/time. Practice better. I have a tendency to just bang balls at the range, so I need to focus my time better and remember to take video. The lessons will hopefully give some guidance on what to practice, as should being more diligent in posting video to my swing thread here. Eliminate the blow up holes. Hopefully the lessons will help with this, too, as a lot of my big numbers come from driving the ball into terrible positions/OB, but I also have a tendency to play the hero shot or not focus enough when I am taking my medicine, which leads to more issues. Eliminate the three putts. I am pretty good at reading the break of greens, but I am dreadful at speed control. I leave a huge number of putts short, and often put myself in situations where I leave myself a 5-10 footer after my first putt. Track my stats. I plan on tracking my FIR, GIR, and stuff like that so that I have a better idea of where I need to improve. I keep track during the round, but never end up doing anything with the data afterward. Read Lowest Score Wins. I got the book for Christmas, so I need to carve out some time to dig in.

    • It could be a lot of things, but as a beginner, I’m thinking you are moving your weight too much to your right side causing your body to sway.  If you are getting your hips outside of your right foot you’ll never make it back to the ball. A full length mirror is great to see what is going on.  Note where your head is at address and then where it is at the top of your backswing.  If it has moved back a few inches you’re toast. You need to steady your body and just rotate your arms around it.  A half swing, or slightly more, is a good place to start.  Swinging back and forth with a shorter swing may help to get the feel of transitioning the weight from the right to the left to the right, etc. without swaying your body.

    • Those were 800 bucks in 2002 according to PGA value guide. They look nice and in good condition. I hope you enjoy them. I see you are in Dayton OH, are you a Guided By Voices fan?
