What do you think of this bag set up and alternates.

Recommended Posts

Now I know you play what works for you, and this set up and the alternates work for me. Just curious as to what ya'll think. Would you recommend any alternatives or change anything to make it even better.

Driver: Taylormade R11 9 degree stock shaft stiff flex. Set to promote a draw

3wood: Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 , stock shaft

5 wood: Taylormade R11s set to promote a draw

Hybrid: Taylormade Burner 19 degree

Hybrid: Taylormade Raylor  22 degree

irons: Taylormade Burner 2.0 6-pw

Wedges: Cleveland CG16's 48, 56 degree

Calloway Warbird 52 degree ( want to replace it with another Cleveland once I get some more funds)

Putter: Taylormade Ghost Spider

Alternates that I add in depending on the course.

Hybrids: Adams tight lies:  16 degree (hit is nice but only from the fairway ,where the TM's I can get out of rough too)

Nickent 6DT : 3h (19 degree) 4h (22 degree) use them sometimes but like the adams can not get them out of the rough.

Wedges: Maxfli C3 56 and 60 degree with different bounce on the 56 than the cleveland.

3wood: Tayormade r5 with a smaller head than the Superfast and can hit it better some days.

Seems pretty standard to me. No 5 iron, but you have a 5w and a 3h? Unless you hit them much differently, I'd set the 5w to around 19˚ and give the 19˚ 3h the boot, or vice versa. You could add in another hybrid or iron, though it probably isn't a common yardage. Maybe add a LW if you actually make use of it. Not a fan of the burner irons in general, but it seems like you fill every basic need.

Awards, Achievements, and Accolades

I carried the 5 iron and never used it. I have the 5 wood adjusted down in loft from its 18 degree stock setting. I do have a gap in loft from the Raylor to 6 iron but found this is not an issue on just about every hole. As long as I can get to the 170-150 range from the tee on most par 4's or second shot on par 5's I can reach with the 6 iron on down. But the set up is geared towards my home course and does changed based on the length or conditions of the course. More green side bunkers and add in the lob wedge etc. Thanks for the feed back.

    • I've spent the week of Thanksgiving in Pinehuerst (at Talamore, actually) every year since 2007.  We've had a very few frost delays, and most years its really pleasant.  We've played in shorts lots of times.  Myrtle Beach will be about the same, or slightly warmer. Its a great time for either, not at all crowded, less slow play problems, easier to get a seat in a restaurant, you'll love it.  If you decide on Pinehurst, I can recommend a few good places.
    • I have these too, I like the look.  I really doubt that there's any advantage to be gained.
    • You could vote 0 if that number is closer to the percentage than 1. That's why there's a "0" option.
    • I'm still recovering from my golf marathon, but I'll write just a little bit now.  First and foremost, this was an absolute blast, thanks to the huge effort of the organizers, @mvmac and @iacas, to the sponsors, to the staff at Talamore and MidSouth, and to the attitude and efforts of all of the players.  I was lucky enough this past week to play with every one of my teammates (when I count my pre- and post-tournament fun rounds), and against every player on the West team except for @Golfingdad.  Ten matches total for the 2015 and 2017 Newport Cups, and I haven't been in the group with him once.  Fortunately, I've been able to play with him in Palm Springs a couple of times. I loved the matches, from watching @Pretzel and @phillyk bomb it almost off the planet, to watching my partner @bkuehn1952 sink every putt inside 10 feet (keeping the pressure off of me), to seeing @mchepp try to grind me to dust, one crumb at a time.  I enjoyed the mix  of personalities, the wide range of ages, over 40 years from top to bottom, the huge variations in our golf games.  I'm REALLY happy that the top end of the ages was victorious in the end.  I'm absolutely amazed that the end result was this close once again, although it may just be an indication that we all have reasonably accurate handicaps.   As someone mentioned earlier in this thread, a few of us blue team players talked about the challenge balls on Friday night, with most of it being less than completely enthusiastic.  As it turned out, however, I thought the challenge was pretty exhilarating, really ramping up the pressure.  Of course, my match on Saturday with @mchepp was nothing but pressure to start with, I'm not sure I needed to ramp it up any more.  You know, for us old guys, a heart attack on 18 tee wouldn't be a good thing.   Enough for now.  Once again, my thanks go out to @iacas and @mvmac, the sponsors, the venues, the players, and especially to @RandallT for keeping my lovely wife informed.
    • I'm the new guy here on this forum, so I imagine this debate has been going on for awhile so I'll just respectfully respond to this by giving my opinion on the matter: Bull-feathers! There are four things that determine the distance you hit a golf ball; the loft angle on the clubhead, the length of the club, the speed of your swing, and how close to the center sweet spot you connect with the ball. Everything else, IMO, is marketing BS. But as I said at the very beginning of this thread, my swing is not the same as it was 16 years ago when I got my X-14's so I'll be buying something. What that something is at this point I'm still not 100% certain.
