    difficult to answer because my bag is completely new (only 3W stayed)

    But the two biggest things for me were the switch from AP2 to Rogue Pro ... i love these so much!

    and finding a driver that absolutely kills it. XR16 Pro with a handcrafted EvenFlow Black.

    my newest addition (few days ago) is a Xforged UT 18* with a evenflow black 85 in it, it seems to be a absolute game changer, but that is a bit too early to confirm!

    Got fitted for True Temper X7's in my Srixon 745s.

    Move from 2017 M2 driver to G400 Max. Hands down the most drastic and positive change i have seen in my golf game in a long time!!

    Vokey SM7 58-12 D Grind wedge. This is the perfect grind for me; easy out of greenside rough, tight lies on the fringe, and pure magic out of the bunkers.

    Definitely switching from my Ping 4 Crossover driving iron to my Ping G 4 hybrid. Don't know why I switched in the first place, must've been something good, but that club has been giving me problems lately. I strike that hybrid so well, so I had to put it back in. Second, switching from midsize grips on all my clubs, back to standard size. It just feels more natural and I truly can see my ball flight straighten out.

    Changing my two Ping Glide 2.0 wedges for a Callaway MD4 and a Cleveland CBX. My short game has improved immeasurably since then, just so much more consistent. I can’t remember the last time I hit an awful shot with either, whereas my Glide 56 ES was magnificent out of bunkers but hopeless at everything else.

    I've only made 1 real change this year, so I'm going to go with that one - upgraded my Nike OG Blades to a 2nd hand set of VR Pros. They're a truly fantastic set - everything that was good about my OG's, but an extra club longer and much lower trajectory. I suspect I've dropped onto a set from The Over, given the Satin finish and previously Tour Only grips (they are the Tour Velvet Align models but no align branding). However whoever made them, they perform brilliantly.

    Scores haven't plummeted as I still have a few driving demons to exorcise, but after 4 years of never winning any money for a "2" in competitons, I've had one in every medal I've played with the VR Pros (5 now). At £7 per 2, I should have made my money back in around 28 medals, so in 2021 image/smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    Ping G25 Irons. So forgiving and straight it's ridiculous. The ho in me tried to move on from them because of their 'shovel-like' nature, but some of you talked some sense into me and they're back in the bag, and I'm hopin to move all the extras and stick with what works. Nothin but point and shoot, which means more greens in reg, par 3 scoring coming down, and reliable irons off the tee on tighter par 4s.

    Made two great changes for me.

    1.) I got some JPX 900 Hot Metals. Total game changer for me.

    2.) Benched my Odyssey White Hot RX #1 and put my Studio Select Newport 2 back in the bag. I couldn't feel anything for distance control after a year with the Odyssey. I never should have taken the Scotty out of the bag.

    Obviously they are longer and much more forgiving.

    A few big improvements for me:

    1. Going from MP 25's with Project X LZ 5.5 (wrong shaft for me) to MP 18 SC with C Taper 130 x

    2. Going from a 2017 Taylormade M2 to a Ping G400 LST with a Kuro Kage Silver TiNi 60 X

    Driver spin is down, and iron shots are getting much more consistent, shot an 80 for the first time a couple weeks ago

    1.) Moving to the Cobra F8 in a Tour Length setup in the Even Flow Blue X-Stiff.

    2.) Dumping my SM6's for MD4 black wedges (52, 56 in the S grind) and a 60* PM grind, which is the best club currently in the bag.

    Played iron roulette for the last year and finally settled on the CGB’s. GIR’s way up, fun way up, scores dropping.

    More slower swingers who need some extra distance and height ought to give them a shot. They feel a lot better than you’d think.

    Funny how those things just go hand-in-hand, yes ? image/biggrin.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':D' />

    Changed out my 8 year old Tour Edge CB4 for a Callaway Rogue 3 wood w a HXRDUS shaft. Better shaft and less whippy at the bottom of my swing and way more consistent, actually gained some distance due to the consistency. Also changed out my Odyssey White hot XG 2-ball F7 for a Taylormade Black Tour Spider(DJ).Had lost confidence in the F7 which had been a great putter for me but after 7 years it just didn't work anymore.This putter is insanely balanced and easy to get the ball rolling online.

    Putting Rogue Black shafts in my 3 and 5 woods and dumping the stock factory shafts that came with them. Both were fine shafts (and probably perfect for someone else's swing), but that Rogue Black produces repeatable results for me in fairway woods. It's reduced my tendency to lay-up on a long approach significantly, as I'm so confident with those shafts I'm now going for it now far more often (and with some success!).
