    The 913Hd and the TVD wedge were just ordered this morning so I'm still awaiting their arrival. I will post some pics of everything once they arrive. The other clubs should all be pictured in post #1

    Tvd wedge arrived Friday evening when I got home from work and the fantastic weekend continued when I got home Saturday afternoon when a package arrived from EBAY. A Titleist 712U 2iron. I brought it directly to my pro shop and had all of my lofts and lie angles rechecked. Everything is now spot on.. The 712U is 1* strong at 17* and is 2.5* upright. +1/2" with a ProjectX 6.5 shaft. Hit it on the range today and its pure Beebee's to 240 yds. The TVD wedge was money hitting the practice green at 125 yds... I can't wait for the courses to open finally here in the next couple weeks!

    Thanks a lot man!

    I've been toying with the idea of selling the 55* & 59* sm4 wedges and picking up a couple new sm5's for some fresh grooves.

    I'm also very much looking forward to the release of Titleist's "915" line of woods. My 910 & 913's will surely be for sale.

    How's the 913 HD? I'm trying to decide between that or the 712U 2 iron for the last spot in my bag between 3 wood and 3 iron.
    Everything in my bag has imploded.

    I play both bags. Whichever I pull out of the trunk that day. Both perform beautifully and I have confidence in both sets.



    As far as 913hd vs 712u... The 913 launches higher and is as long as the 712 this time of year due to the wet conditions. I think once it starts to dry out the 913 will carry more, but the 712 will end up rolling out to a greater overall distance. The 913 seems a bit more versatile being a bit easier to launch from the rough or even a tight fairway. I absolutely love the feel of them both but I'm not so sure the 712u will stick around. Its just a redundant club yardage wise.

    I actually had a chance to go for a par 5 in 2 yesterday... 517 yards. Fairway lie.had 242 left to the middle of the green and pulled the 913hd.hit a beautiful high draw Pin high just off the edge of the green. 242 with a hybrid is just silly.

    Dropped off a Fubuki tour 73x5ct S-flex at my golf shop today to have a Titleist tip put on it. I was playing it in my covert tour 2.0 and just didn't get along with the open face of the Nike. Traded in the Nike for a 8.5* 913D3 and I'll be testing this setup out head to head against my 8.5* 913D2 with the 72g D+ X-flex. I'm thoroughly enjoying the Titleist bag right now with 5 straight rounds in the 70's. I have been testing the bridgestone B-330S balls and have had good results. I love the spin I've been getting greenside and the soft feel.



    I've got 2 NYSGA tournaments coming up on 6/16 & 6/17 at Tuscarora golf club and En-Joie golf club. (Home of the dicks sporting goods open) Im looking for a couple solid finishes to improve my points standing in the series. Of 393 players in the series I'm currently tied for 37th. The top 80 make the series championship at Oak Hill in September.

    I love both of your bags, are you going to play a titleist driver with your nike bag though? I seem to remember someone's OCD not allowing that kind of thing to happen! haha



    Good luck with the tournaments!

    The Nike bag is for sale.

    In true club whXre fashion I've been bit by the bug again and I'm looking at a set of 714cb's to replace the Nike blades. I'd love to sell everything this coming off season pick up 915 woods/hybrid and get the 714cb's along with a brand new Titleist staff bag.

    Back to back 73's this past week at the home course. 82 & 79 at another local par 73 course that's 850yds longer than the home track. +6 & +9 there is respectable for a track I don't play nearly as often.



    Put a new to me shaft in the 913D3.(Aldila RIP @70g stiff) playing to 44.5" instead of my previous usual 45.5" and I'm hitting tons more fairways without much distance loss. Played a 475yd par5 today and had 184yds to the center of the green for my 2nd shot.



    I've removed the 4i from the bag also presently as I rarely hit it from the fairway and I've put my 712U 2i in the bag for accuracy off the tee on tight par 4's. Its longer than the 4i obviously and just as accurate for me.



    Nys mid-amateur qualifying at Tuscarora golf club in Central NY on 8/15 with joey2aces on here. Should be a blast!

    End of another golf season here in the great northeast. This bag is going to undergo a huge transformation over winter.



    The staff bag is showing its age and the zippers are beginning to fail after 10 years of use. I'll be looking at a new Titleist staff bag to fill the void.



    The 913's have been great, but I had a chance to swing the 915's yesterday and they were flat out better. New driver, 3w and hybrid to be ordered within the next month.



    My iron game has been my strong suit for years but I've been more frustrated of late on those slight mishits coming up 5-10 yds short costing me strokes. I've been testing other options and it looks like a set of 714 AP2's with soft stepped tour issue x100's will be in the bag for 2015. I'm looking into a 712U 4iron, AP2 5-9irons and a set of vokeys going 46/52/56/59 with the 46+52 having soft stepped tour issue X100's while the 56 + 59 will be tour issue S400's straight in.



    The putter will remain my Scotty Cameron studio select squareback #2. I made putts I had no business sinking with this over the past couple months and its going to suit me well having this in the bag going forward.



    I suspect the end results will look something like this:



    Titleist 10.5" staff bag



    Titleist 915D3 9.5* set to D3 with 125MSI Aldila Rogue Silver 70 TS @ 45"



    Titleist 915F 13.5* set to C3 with 95MSI

    Aldila Rogue Black 80 TS tipped 1.5" @ 43"



    Titleist 915Hd 20.5* set to A1 with Diamana D+ 90S @ 39.5"



    Titleist 712U 4i 1*strong +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue X100 softstepped 1x



    Titleist 714 AP2 5-9I +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue x100's softstepped 1x



    Vokey SM5 Tour Chrome 46.08 F-Grind +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue X100 softstepped 1x



    Vokey SM5 Tour Chrome 52.08 F-Grind +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue X100 softstepped 1x



    Vokey SM5 Tour Chrome 56.10 S-grind 1* strong +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue S400



    Vokey SM5 Tour Chrome 58.11 K-grind 1* weak +1/2" 3* upright with Tour Issue S400



    Scotty Cameron Studio Select Squareback #2 35"

    Were you able to hit the ts at fitting. I have a fitting in a couple weeks at advanced titleist fitter but not sure they will have the 125 msi. Is it the same upcharge as the 125 msi tour x? I have heard $200. Thanks

    I was only able to demo the 110msi silver 60 S in the driver and the 95msi 80 S black in the fairway. They did not have the 125msi in the fitting cart. My swing however is more sensitive to shaft and swing weight than flex. The silver 60 is 65grams and I've found over time that I am much more consistent with 70+ gram shafts... The 125msi Silver 70 TS is 72g and is a $155 upcharge through TGW.

    if you go on Aldila.com they show TS and TX versions of the rogue available. the TS is 72g 2.7tq while the TX is listed as 73g 2.5tq... the next closest I can find to those specs is the 110MSI silver 60X at 72g 3.1tq.



    My current 913 gamer is a 8.5* D2 with the Aldila RIP @70S which is listing at 74g 2.7tq which is lining up very nicely with the 125MSI Silver 70TS

    Picked up a new Titleist staff bag today to begin the process of the full bag overhaul for 2015. The new bag on the left with old faithful on the right.
