    Sick sick sick!!!! I love the fact that he took his favorite iron of each loft and made a dream bag. That is some serious testing...



    How about that Circle T gamer.

    I've seen this before in some of the "older Players" I dont think I could do this my mind couldnt stop thinking about 14 DIFFRENT clubs in the bag.....





    But I would love Toms game!!!!!





    I saw Lee T. bag in charlotte NC one year and they looked like a $75.00 set of irons....

    Great pics...... I remember the thread a while back talking about it, but it's cool to see. Looks like he's about to set up camp for a while on the putting green with the two snickers, water, and putting aid. Someone needs to tell him to send that circle T for a restore and a COA though..... killing the value by apparently not using a headcover image/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' />

    So awesome. Definitely wants to play what works, even if it looks like a rental bag from the local muni.

    LOL I don't think Tom worries much about the "investment" that he got for free.

    Hahaha- maybe one would be a better decision.

    Now that is variety! Not only different brands but very different head styles too.

    It's hard to tell from the pictures but it looks like the TM rac MB is a "one of a kind" iron. That iron has a very thin top line whereas that rac MB in his bag appears to be more beveled out and broader than normal at the top line.



    Anyone out there know or have knowledge of these TM rac MB irons?

    That is definitely a one-off Rac MB. Nowhere near the retail. Something custom for Tom with notches cut out in the back to make it resemble the retail Rac MB when just seeing the cavity from behind.

    They are if the packaging doesn't have the bar code on them...rolleyes.gif . I believe the "tour" issues do not contain the caloric content as well...biggrin.gif

    You mean pros get clubs for free? They must have to pay for the headcover..... lol

    Why does he go cavity back short irons but blades for long irons? shouldnt it be the other way around?
  • SplitterSplitter The truth is out there.... Members Posts: 3,396
    Pretty neat. He'd be screwed if the airlines torched his bag though. His caddy would have to hit up all the local garage sales and swap meets.



    BTW.. what's up with that putter? Doesn't he know he can get "TL" stamped all over that thing?


  • What is that cobra iron in the first pic? Looks great!




    That is an old Cobra Norman forged blade. That set was one nice set of blades! TL definitely has an unusual bag of sticks.

    Indeed. Great set. I have a set in the attic. I pull them out every now and then to remind me how bad I am.

    I'm just dumbfounded at this "set", I wonder if he just needs to keep things interesting to keep his head in every shot or something. This seems so odd to me, but heck I'm sure the guy could beat me with his 7 iron, whatever model that happens to be image/huh.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':huh:' />.

    Somewhere, an OCD WRX'er has just killed himself. That is certainly one of the more interesting bags I've seen.

    He probably wants a wider sole with the short irons so he won't dig too much with them through the turf image/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />

    I think its great that he has picked the clubs he is most confident in. To me it really shows a golfer who looks at each shot individually. He's not worried about the progression from a 6 iron to a 7 iron but rather the look of a 7 iron when he chooses to hit that club. That philosophy won't work for 99.999999% of golfers but he has found a way to use it well considering his career.



    Also, the Putting Arc that he is carrying in the last pic is an amazing tool. It's the only golf training aid I have ever purchased and its done more for my game than anything else.
