Titleist 714 AP Combo Set

8 posts in this topic

Good day all, I think I have set my sights on getting a Titleist 714 Combo set between the AP1's and AP2's in KBS tour shafts. Does anyone currently play a combo set and if so what is your set up? I am looking at the 5,6,7 from the AP1's and the 8,9,PW in the AP2's. I dont go any lower than the 5 because I game a 3 and 4 hybrid which I am extremely consistent with. Any thoughts, experiences? Thanks guys.

You should be able to combo any way you want. It might cost more or less because your switching out one different club for another, but any golf store will be able to order what you want.

Excellent idea!!  When ordering the combo set, make sure you specify the lofts that you want.  There's a bit of a gap between the AP1 and AP2 7 and 8 iron lofts.  The AP1 7 is 32 degrees and the AP2 8 is 38 degrees.  Six degrees is a bit much between irons.  Those are stock specs, so unless that's no biggie, make sure you get them to adjust the gaps between the irons to fit your needs.

I toyed with the idea of a mixed set.  The AP1 and AP2 are only one degree apart at the 6 iron, AP1 @ 29* and AP2 @ 30* so that, to me, seemed the logical place to make the set switch.  After studying on it, reading a lot of comments from players already using both models and some personal reflection on the state of my game I went with a full set of AP1s.  They are some of the best looking "game improvement" clubs out there (IMO) and I couldn't really see a reason to go with a mix of AP1 and AP2.  I am, however, filling the bottom portion of my bag with SCOR wedges, so that still constitutes a "mixed set" I suppose.

I have a combo set similar to what you are looking at. I went with the 714 AP1 4-6 and AP2 7-GW. I like the set a lot, but honestly if I had it to do over I would go all AP1. Just my .02

I love the idea of the combo set.  I won't really be buying anytime super soon, but if I suddenly won the lottery this year I'd buy a combo 712 CB/MB set...

Ha.  Just a typo.  Been fantasizing about the 712s all year and didn't update that fantasy to the 714s for the post!

    • Some background information before you vote... I run a weekly game on Saturdays and Sundays with anywhere from 8-12 guys. Handicaps in my group range anywhere from 1 to 16. Expected pace of play at my course is right at 4 hours. Anything more and its frowned upon. We do not get the earliest tee times of 8am, because the course does me a favor by allowing me to have standing tee times without having to call every week. We have 9:00-9:10-9:20 every weekend.  This morning we had 7 guys, so I sent off a 3some (me included) and the last 4 guys to follow. On the 3rd hole I noticed that there was a 2some in front of us on 4 tee, and one of the guys took 5 practice swings just to top his driver maybe 4 feet. It was still on the tee box. He reteed and pulled one about 60 yards left. No biggie, golf is hard no matter how good or bad you are.  The 2some was not very good, so they were having a hard time keeping  up with the 4some in front of them. I texted the assistant pro (close buddy) in the pro shop and he came out and asked the 2some to try and keep pace or let our 3some through. We waited on every shot on 4-5-6 and finally on 7 green we hurried to the 8th tee only for them to look back at us then drive off. The issue was they were waiting for the 4some to get on the green before they would tee off, and then come nowhere close to hitting it 200 yards. On the 9th tee I finally said, "hey guys, do you mind if we play through? We will get through that 4some no problem and you wont see us again" They said sorry, but the 4some is not allowing them to play faster and that they couldnt let us through. At that point I said, you're a 2some, and 2 hours for 9 holes is not on pace. You need to push the guys in front of you so they know to let people through.  At the turn the assistant pro let us through, and we played through the 4some on 11 without them missing a beat. Ended up playing in 2 hours and 55 mins, even with the hold up (all three of us shot sub 80 rounds). After the round I thank the assistant pro for allowing us to play through, and mentioned that 2 hours for a 2some was not on pace. He told me that they complained that I was pressuring them to push the group in front of them, and that he was a tennis member who they would like to join as a golf member. The assistant pro said he has been giving one of them lessons, and that 2 hours probably should be their pace. I replied with " I have no problem with anyone shooting 120 on a Sunday morning, golf is golf, but when there is a faster group behind its golf courtesy to let them through"  I dont really care what they think, and honestly if they can get around in less than 4 hours Id be glad to have them play in my weekly game. Was I wrong for pushing a group of not very good golfers?  
    • Fired up the smoker and plan to watch in about 35 minutes.  Can't wait to see this match go down.  My money is on Rory, but we shall see.........   @natureboy - How about that 133 YARD ;) wedge shot yesterday into the elevated green with the pin placement in the front.  Mortals wouldn't have a chance at that pin....
    • Not a smart bet IMO.  Just for the fact that Spieth plays so well at the Masters.  I would take that bet on all the major excluding the Masters.  No one in their right mind would bet against Spieth at the masters, 2nd, 1st and 2nd place finishes in his last 3 attempts.  Just saying.....  I believe he will win another Major, @ the Masters.  
    • Yes, some ranges with limited space use "restricted flight" balls that don't fly nearly as far as regular golf balls (60% sounds about right).
