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.

    • Hi,  I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them. The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.  I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.  If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75.  You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club. Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape. 
    • This isn't poor etiquette. It's common sense. The only time this is an issue is if you strike when someone else finally decides to strike at that same moment after 30 practice swings. Then it's your fault for sure
    • Most golfers select a SW for the bunker conditions they face most often. Then, you can make adjustments for the odd course you play. If you normally have firm sand and play a course with soft sand, you can still get it out if you have good technique - you may not get it as close. It's about trade-offs. Not that many amateur players have a second SW with different bounce.
    • In high school I learned with the interlocking grip which was never comfortable for me.  Years later after reading Hogan I switched to the overlapping grip.  This took a year or two before I was comfortable, but still felt better for me. My hands are about the same size as "The Golden Bear's" which is average to small.   As I got older, I wasn't comfortable again so about 10-15 years ago I switched to the ten finger grip. Now in my mid-60's, this is very comfortable for me. Each change took a year or two before it felt natural.  Enjoy the progress of your adjustments.  There are other changes too as we get older, strengths, injuries, flexibility, aggressiveness, etc that require us to make modifications in how we play this great game. 
    • ??? A local high school coach who was once a 5 index golfer would say that. I hope that was some sort of typo or something.
