Having gone several months without swinging the sticks, I'm needing any kind of golf talk possible.....

So, those of you that play golf, what's in your bag? Any new clubs you've demoed, or would like to demo?

My sticks:

Cleveland Launcher 460 Composition (9.5 degree)

Cleveland Launcher Composition 3 Wood (15 degree)

Titleist 904F 5 Wood (18.5 degree)

Cleveland TA6 Irons

Adams gunmetal wedges (52, 56 and 60 degree)

Guerin Rife Mallet putter

Ball: Usually play Nike One Black. Also play Bridgestone B330 and Callaway HX Tour56.




I'm pretty happy with my driver, but am dying to demo the new Nike Sumo Squared. I'd really like to get some new irons this spring, but haven't even begun to look......

I have a black Ogio cart bag.

Driver: Taylormade R5 Neutral 10.5 degrees

Woods: Adams golf tight lies 3 and 5 woods

Irons: Adams golf tight lies irons 3-LW

Putter: Some crappy Dunlop one that I got accustomed to when I first started playing.

I generally play with Nike Mojos or Callaway HX Hots.

Last time I checked:

9.5 V-Foil driver (I got pissed at my Callaway and bought this cheap...hit the $hit out of it)
Callaway 3 wood (15 degree)

1-PW Ping Eye 2. Bought new in 1985
Green dot, 1/2 extended
SW I believe is back to the trusty black dot

putter... Ping MyDay from early 80s.
Again...pissed at the TaylorMade

Ball....ProV1 of course.

TM R5 with NV

Mizuno MP-32 irons

Nickent Genex Cross 4, 7, 9 wood

Nickent 3DX 5 and 6 Hybrid

Mizuno MP Black Ox Wedges (51, 56 & 60 degree)


Titleist Scotty Cameron Futura putter



At any point I can be carrying 3-PW of my MP 32's or pull out the 3-6 iron and be playing with some combination of those fairway woods and hybrids. Depends on the wind and depends on what I have the most confidence at that given moment. Most people love the hybrids over long irons...I have traditionally prefered long irons but I finally found some hybrids that I like with these Nickents...I had tried everything under the sun and liked several but none better than my long irons. I finished last season really liking that Genex Cross 7 wood. It was my goto club at the end of the year. Three back surgeries over the winter so it is tough to say what will work best after a completely surgically repaired back.

luckily the small locally owned shop here in town has a boatload of these and i think that i'm pretty much the only one that buys them...

everyone else lines up to buy Pro V1's and HX Tour 56's...i like them, but you can find a nice 3 piece for much cheaper...

another one that i liked before it was discontinued was the Callaway HX Blues; i swear, they were almost as soft as the old Titleist Tour Balatas and Tour Professionals...you hit one thin and it's pretty much ruined..I still keep a few of these in my bag for scramble tournament golf, those gunmetal wedges can put some crazy spin on em

I just started playing about a year ago. I'm not any good yet. I normally land right around 100. This year my goal is to get to where I am consistently in the 90s. Mid or low would be great. I really plan on working hard.

I have some Taylor Made irons that I just bought toward the end of last season, I have only played a round or two with them but I really started liking them. Never had fitted irons before. My woods are Callaways that I picked up used - nothing fancy. I might go with Taylor Made ones when I replace them if I keep liking the irons as much as I do so far.

I made my own clubs.

OK...well, I bought generic Ping irons and steel shafts and built them myself while working at a golf shop in my early 20's.

I've had them since. I still have my original Bulls-Eye putter I used during my tourney days. Much to my father's surprise and shock, he noticed I was still putting with it last summer.

I have a Callaway driver and a Taylor Made driver. Not sure what my other woods are for I rarely ever use 'em.

I'm shopping around for a whole new set of irons, and of course, a new putter. It'll be hard to give up my putter- I'll probably just encase it in glass and memorialize it on my wall in my den. :D

TM makes some very good fairway woods...The V Steel is one of the most popular of all time and started to get closed out this last season so you can now find a new one on Ebay very cheap.

After putters, fairway woods are one of the more personal clubs. Peoples preferences are all over the board and finding a good fairway wood that works for your game can be as tough as finding the right wife. Once you do stick with it. Technology has gotten better in fairway woods over the years but not as much of a difference as there has been in drivers. You will see tour players using 10 to 20 year old fairway woods that they just can't take out of the bag.

Sometimes I don't make much sense, I know. I'm very fortunate to have this little pitch and putt (par 27) 2 blocks from my house. I often meet a couple of buddies on Friday mornings before work. The last 3 Fridays 34, 32 and today 30. It's done wonders for my short game.

I miss playing some golf too.

I got some ping irons a almost 10 years ago (present to myself when my first son was born) slowly upgraded the woods to callaways, got the big bertha about two years ago and last year got an upgrade at putter finally.

I love playing, been playing for a while (broke 80 once also about 10 years ago), but now I'm having a good day when I keep 18 holes under 100.

Still, I would rather have a bad day golf than a good day at work, and there's always the few great shots and usually one, one spectacular shot that keeps me coming back.

To start things off, I have a Callaway Big Bertha Hawkeye.

Then I usually turn to my Ping Zing clones (Several proshop guys have told me they are the best Ping knockoffs they've ever seen) I have a 1-3W but usually only carry the 3-3W

A generic putter that I preffer to even the better brands - I just like the feel of it.

And last summer I picked up a Wilson 4 Wood out of a bin of clubs at the local thrift store for $2. I've always prefered the feel of real wood off the fairways and it seems like you can't find them new much anymore. I'll play this one until the wrap comes loose and the club breaks. Then I'll go back to my tightlies while I look for another one.



As for balls, I have found a brand that is really cheap but work good for me. I get them at some of the pro-shops around here. I think they are made by Ranger and come in white/red but sometimes I can get yellow/red. They seem to come in bulk and usually run me about $3.50 for 3-4 dozen - one purchase usually lasts me most of a season.

Innovex irons 5 through 64* lob wedge.
Wilson 3,4 hybrid irons. I love these. It took a couple of season's work to learn how to hit them properly, but these clubs have helped me immensly.

Odyssey 2 ball putter. (meh)

Precept U-tri or Laddie Exreme. Late last year I found what I would call a very good 'value ball'. The Wilson Smart Core. Found them on sale for $4.99 (24 pack). These balls were so good for me I went back and bought 3 more packages.

A few years back (8 or so) I bought a set of clubs from some guy. They are basically an off-brand that I bought to use while I learned to lay, before dropping tons of money on nicer clubs. I spent a couple of years teaching myself to play (against the advice of anyone who I had ever discussed it with).
But the "teaching myself" thing has never worked out real well (surprise!). This year, my wife and I are finally going to invest in some lessons. We'll see how those work out, and I may upgrade to an actual brand of clubs.

Same with me, minus the whole future lessons thing. I got a bag of misc. clubs from my old boss a few years ago. My three wood has seen better days at this point. On the fourth of July two years ago my buddy decided to tee off on a couple of balls in the still-full stadium parking lot after a semi-pro baseball game. Luckily, he was too drunk to hit the ball but my club has some severe damage which resulted from repeated contact with the asphalt.

I actually have 2 sets of no-name clubs. My father and I went a few years without ever getting along. Once we started to get along, and respect each other a lot more, I bought him a new set of clubs so we could learn together how to play. Then a month later he died. Never got to play one round with him. We just went to the driving range once.

My lineup hasn't changed except I bought a pull cart after reading that carrying clubs means a higher score. I also bought a GPS software package for my PDA last year.

They are great when you hit them solid. But they have a sweet spot the size of a dried up pea.

I was playing with Founders Club blades, actually pretty well, and they were stolen. I bought these as replacements, and have never really gained any confidence in them.
Probably only played a couple dozen rounds with them, but they are pretty to look at.

How do those balls work out? What grade do you buy?

I just bought 8 dozen off a guy on Ebay that were in mint condition (literally, all but 4 balls looked like they came right out of the sleeve) for $18/dz. Turns out they were shipped from lostgolfballs.com

You'll pay more if you order directly from them, but even then, they are a really good value.

Sign up for their e-mail list. Every Tues/Wed they send out an e-mail with a special. The last one was 20% off all Titleist balls, ProV1 and ProV1x included.

Buy nothing but the AAAAA balls, though. Unless you're OK with anywhere from 25-60% of the order having scuffs. Some people are fine with that. Their grading scale is very truthful.

FWIW, their E-bay store is usually cheaper than their website, unless you have an e-mail coupon.

I'm shopping for some new irons currently, as I've had my current set for 11 years now. Looking at Mizunos primarily, possibly an MX-25/MP-57 combo set. Planning on Project X 5.5 shafts - love those things.

I'm jonesing for golf season something fierce - why did I choose to live in MN?

Thanks, just ordered some off their ebay site. Hope it works out. If not I'm coming after you for my money. ;)

I had actually looked at that exact site Sunday. Couldn't decide whether to get the mint or the 4A. Plus on the site itself, mint isn't that great of a deal, with the ebay, it's worth it, hopefully.

Guess I only have 3 out of 14 clubs from 2 years ago but I think I have my bag sorted out for a while.

Dropped the 2 and 3 irons and replaced them with a gap wedge and hybrid. Took me a while to convince myself to play 4 wedges but really like it so far.

Recently lost a huge discount(usually only paid around $25 for Callaway iX or Pro V's).

LOL. I just went to that web site and bought 10 dozen Callaway balls.

You have to have your day-to-day putter, then you have to have the special putter with the wooden shaft that you talk to... "billy, billy, billy, billy, billy.... oh, billy, billy, billy, billy, billy...".

Not usually, I love my Zing..I'm just intrigued by the antique..I'm going practice with it and then decide...


Thats cool. I have been putting with the Zing so long, that each time I take another putter to the course, I regret it.

I just read Nickent went out of business last fall. Too bad, I really like my Nickent putter.

I am the superintendent at a little 9 hole course that is pretty fun to play. I love my job because it is awesome to be outside all day and not be couped up in an office. The one downfall is that I have to watch people play golf all day while I am working. I like to keep a few balls and an old 8 iron in my utility cart so I can hit a few shot when no one is around.

Having gone several months without swinging the sticks, I'm needing any kind of golf talk possible.....

So, those of you that play golf, what's in your bag? Any new clubs you've demoed, or would like to demo?

My sticks:

Cleveland Launcher 460 Composition (9.5 degree)

Cleveland Launcher Composition 3 Wood (15 degree)

Titleist 904F 5 Wood (18.5 degree)

Cleveland TA6 Irons

Adams gunmetal wedges (52, 56 and 60 degree)

Guerin Rife Mallet putter

Ball: Usually play Nike One Black. Also play Bridgestone B330 and Callaway HX Tour56.




I'm pretty happy with my driver, but am dying to demo the new Nike Sumo Squared. I'd really like to get some new irons this spring, but haven't even begun to look......

Wow...

What a difference 2 years makes.

I don't own a single club from my original post.


Driver: Ping G2

3W/5W: Taylor Made V steel, 15 and 18*

Irons: Ping G5

Wedges: Vokey spin milled, satin finish, 54.10 and 60.04

Putter: Odyssey White Hot XG #7.

Ball: Used ProV1's from lostgolfballs.com



Funny, I played yesterday and meant to bump this thread.

Even funnier is how much of a club ho I am. I've pretty much turned by bag over again except for the irons and vokeys.

Now:

Driver: R9 9.5*

4-wood: Taylor Made V-steel 16.5*

Hybrid: Cobra TWS 20*

Irons: Ping G5 (4-PW)
