I haven't done a WITB for a while, and wanted to create one after getting new irons for this season.

Driver: Taylormade M1 430. 9.5 Degree. Kuro Kage X Flex. 44"
Hybrid: Taylormade P790 UDI. PX 6.5. 40"
Irons: Taylormade P790. 4, 6, 8, PW. Nippon 120 X Flex. +1/2"
Wedge: Mizuno T7 54 Degree. Nippon 105 X Flex. +1/2"
Putter: Odyssey Protype
Grips: BestGrips Microperf Oversized in Masters Green on all clubs besides the Odyssey
Bag: 2018 Sun Mountain 2.5 No Logo
Headcovers: Sunfish Full Leather
Shoe: Nike Roshe Tour

Overall, it's a pretty simple setup that works well for me. Let me know what you think, or if you have any questions. Thanks!

    My only question is "why not more photos?" ... That's a SWEET bag!

    Personally, I like the headcover for the UDI, especially the Sunfish. What's the loft? That's almost the exact same set-up I use when I go minimalist, and I have an 18 degree Adams proto in that spot.

    Sweet set, love half sets to be honest. My set at home is as follows:
    Driver: Titleist 910D3
    3 hybrid: nickent 3dx
    5 hybrid: Acer
    7 & 9 Irons: MD (don't know the model..) gap wedge: TM (RSi)
    Lob wedge: Cleveland 588 60o
    Putter: Ping
    So a bit of a mix but works quite well. Will take picture when I am home next week.

    Thanks guys!

    The UDI is 17 degrees, the stock loft. The head cover is a carryover from the club it replaced, a Tour Issue Adams LSP hybrid. I'm really impressed by Sunfish's head cover quality and love its look, so I don't want it to go to waste, but doubt it'll be used every round.

    Sweet setup. I think more of us should game sets like this and watch our games improve. But alas, we are WRX'ers and have to live the Pro life. Hit'em straight.

    It's funny you mention game improvement. The half set started as an experiment mid last season. I was playing JPX 900 Tours 5-PW and decided to play a round with only the 5, 7, and 9 irons. I played well and kept it going the rest of the season, although I did change which half set depending on the course.

    I found that it prevented second guessing shots (i.e. do I go full 6 or soft 5, etc.). It hasn't resulted in dropping my ~4 handicap much yet, but my scoring is more consistent. Hopefully it will continue to improve as I dial in the new irons.

    I use this exact makeup for when I sneak out to walk the course I live on. Even have the 2 UDI!
