After a couple of summers of searching for deals and self-tinkering with club specs, I finally feel really good about what's in my bag. The only clubs I'd look to replace at this point are the driver and 3-wood, but only for an amazing deal on an M3. Being 6'9" presents its challenges with finding clubs that work for my game and swing, but I've enjoyed the journey and hopefully I can stop scouring the internet for new clubs!

Driver - TaylorMade R11 TP 9* w/ Mitsubishi Fubuki 70X @ 44.5":

3-Wood - TaylorMade R11 TP 15.5* w/ Mitsubishi Fubuki 70X @ 42.5":

Hybrid - Adams Idea Pro A12 20* w/ Aldila Tour Blue 85X @ 40":

Irons - TaylorMade R9 TP w/ Dynamic Gold X100 @ +1":

Wedges - TaylorMade Tour Preferred EF Wedges w/ Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400:

Putter - TaylorMade Ghost Tour Black @ 35”

    On -, @BigHeavy Dude that's a sick set-up great taste and execution. FWIW I think you may enjoy the Ian Frasers podcast. He has a little gem at the end that I think may apply to your situation. He talks about making sure even the best the components fit the golfers swing to give the best help if it's not your thing no problem sick kit and your air force 1 game and classic J's game is on fleek!

    I’m 1” over and 3* upright. Takes a while to find a set like that! I was cleaning my clubs this morning and noticed the serial for the first time ever. Mean anything to anyone?
