D2 College Golfer WITB ***UPDATES***

ConnorBennink19ConnorBennink19 ConBen1199Members Posts: 43 ✭✭

Fellow golfers,

As far as my game is concerned, I hover between a +1.0 and a 0 handicap and have played in lots of tournament
golf. Swing speed with driver is 112, and play cuts with driver and 3 wood and draw everything else.
Playing golf in 2019 fall at a division 2 school in PA. Thought I would share my bag with y'all.

Driver
Taylormade M2, 2017
Project X Evenflow Blue HANDCRAFTED 6.0, 65 gram (tipped 1 inch)
45.25 inches
GP MCC Align, +3 wraps
This club is awesome. I have had it for a year and a half and can manage to hit lots of fairways. As I mentioned I almost exclusively hit cuts with this driver off the tee and the combo of shaft and head give me super-smooth feel and still lots of pop. The spin is a little high (~2800rpm) but I will gladly sacrifice the distance for accuracy.


3 Wood
Taylormade M3
Project X Evenflow Blue, 6.0 65 grams (tipped 1 inch)
42.5 inches
GP MCC Align, +3 wraps
Also a big fan of this club, and the low spin head and slightly softer shaft help me hit a nice flat ball off the tee and still hit into the occasional green. Really like the slightly shorter shaft on this as well.


3 Iron
Srixon Z U85, 3/20*
UST Mamiya Recoil SmacWrap ES Matte Black 780 f4 (tipped 1 inch) 86 grams
39.5 Inches
GP MCC Align, +3 wraps
My Srixon Utility is my newest addition to the bag and it is fantastic. After using my trusty g25 hybrid for years, this gives me much more versatility in flight while still being forgiving and easy to hit, plus being a huge 'cool' factor in the bag. Love the black recoil shaft and end up using it all the time.


Irons
Srixon z745 4-PW
KBS Tour Stiff shafts
Standard L/L/L
Lamkin UTX Distressed blue, +3 wraps
I have had my trusty 745's in the bag since sophomore year, and after buying them used off of ebay, they have been great. It felt great to see the WRX article that proclaimed them a 'modern cult classic'!! The new Z-Forged blades are lookin really good to me right now :wink:
P.S, finally starting to get some wear marks!!


Wedges
Titleist Vokey SM7's 50.8F, 54(bent to 55).10S, 60.8M
KBS Tour 125 Stiff Shafts
Standard L/L/L
Lamkin UTX Masters Green, +4 wraps
Got these wedges over the winter in (Like New) condition and swapped in KBS shafts to match the irons. Vokeys are always great and there's not much to say here.

Finally, Putter
MY BABY
Toulon Atlanta H4 (slant neck)
KBS CT Tour Matte Black
34 Inches
Ping pp58 Pingman Midsize grip
I think this putter is great. Especially after switching the new KBS Putter shaft into it this year, I love the all black look. The squat head frames the ball perfectly and it fits my eye nicely. The slant neck gives 30* of toe hang which feels right for my stroke.




Thoughts?

    Really slick set-up, so nicely thought out too.

    What's the bag you're hauling around the course?

    Great setup and best of luck to you. Love that putter grip, never seen one with just the Ping Man logo, really cool. I noticed you have a Streamsong head cover on your 3 wood. Really cool resort and awesome courses. I've played Black and Red twice, haven't played the Blue. Walked them in the summer and being from florida I didn't think it could be any hotter, but yes it is. Keep hitting them straight.

    Thank you! I actually just colored in the 'PING' to hide it haha. My dad actually played streamsong but I have not been, definitely a bucket list trip.

    Have you always played Srixon irons? Considering Srixon so curious what you like about them and/or how they compare to other irons you'd played.

    I have only had the ap2 712's before these so I can't really compare much. When I have hit y buddies' clubs and things I much prefer mine for the look (very square and boxy) and feel. Definitely recommend

    so.... this happened today..... :neutral:


    Have had these irons for about 3 years now, and today on the 4th hole the head of my 7 iron went flying off. It was crazy, my friends had no idea what happened because it was a great shot, finished about 15 feet from the hole!!! I was completely shaken, and it is crazy because the shaft itself actually broke, and it didn't break off cleanly at all (I tried to show the picture). I called Srixon customer service and they were very nice and promised to repair it free of charge in about 2 weeks time. Still, I am pretty bummed, but it is a great story haha. I think the fact that I hit 7 iron so often on the range also impacted the wear and tear.

    Have made some changes to the bag that I thought were worth noting!
    Also got my clubs swing weighted for the first time which was great! My woods play at D-1, 3-PW are D-2, 50,55 are D-3, and 60 is D-5.


    Streamlined my grips and went with lamkin utx throughout. All have 4 wraps of tape, and some are the masters green, and the rest are distressed blue.



    Purchased a new driver shaft, the Tour AD TP 6X. I am loving this shaft because it brings my spin down a lot without giving up much height. Also feels great, and much more under control than the previous one.




    Also got a new shaft for the 3 wood. Now I have an Evenflow blue 75 6.5 shaft that also feels much more stable. Bumped the loft up to 17 degrees and now I am getting an awesome flight and more accuracy from the club, without giving up distance!



    Just put a new grip and swingweighted the 3 iron to D-2.




    Got my 7 iron repaired and swingweighted to D-2 with a tip weight and lead tape.
