2019 January Bag is Set Challenge - for the hos

ghoonkghoonk The HoarderMembers Posts: 227 ✭✭
Inspired by the other thread, but this is one is for the club hos and will-challenged



I don't think I'm going to make it a full year without changing the club configuration, but let's try to start with a month (or, more like the next 3 weeks):





2019 JANUARY Bag Is Set Challenge -








TM M4 driver 10.5* with Tensei Orange 50S shaft




Srixon F65 4 wood




Srixon H65 16* and 19* hybrids




Miura MC-501 irons (4 to P)




Miura 54* and 58* black wedges




Bettinardi SS #6








Time for more golf image/golfer.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':golfer:' /> , less eBay!




But there's ONE golden rule - no buying new kit till June - bag changes are allowed once per month (I'm going to see if I can make it 2 months with this bag), using clubs you already have lying around
Srixon Z785 w/ stock Miyazaki Mahana (S) shaft
Srizon F65 3w (15*) w/ stock Miyazaki Kaula (S)
Srixon Z U85 20* driving iron
Taylormade P7TW irons (3-PW) in S400 tour issue shafts
Taylormade Hi Toe 54 and 58 wedges
Bettinardi Studio Stock 8 putter

    Oh. I read one of the replies that stated the rules being that the bag has to be fixed, no changing configuration, etc. I haven't got willpower like that, especially not given the number of drivers, fairway woods, hybrids, irons, and putters sitting around the house. The itch to swap out a 'bad' club is always tempting, though the original thread has made me want to at least try not to change my bag configuration till end Feb at least...

    I hear ya, buddy - my home course plays at around 9 on the stimp, but two of the other courses I play at have much faster (11.5-12) greens, and I really struggle with my speed control. It's going to be an interesting 2 months ahead as I game a 'new' Bettinardi SS #6.... been having some success so far, but I'm putting in some effort to tame my clubs this year..

    Also, what about swapping out wedges due to groove wear? I would think that if you're swapping out an old wedge with a new one of the same model/specs, that should be okay, no?

    Nick from Wellington, New Zealand. The courses I play here are windy, so a range of options are required. Arguably the Fly Z is my most important club as it’ll keep under the wind most of the time and still get good distance. I’m going to demo a 2i driving iron soon that may see one of the hybrids being pulled. Otherwise, I’m hoping to stick to this for as long as I can. (Currently of a 9 HC).

    Most likely change is irons and driver, but this will be after lessons so likely after 3 months (ideally).

    This feels like the Seinfeld episode "The Contest" where Jerry, George, Elaine and Kramer all compete to see who could remain "Master of their Domain" the longest....if you've never seen it, it's definitely worth a watch. Anyway, if I recall correctly, Kramer bowed out almost immediately after the contest began....so I guess my Jan. 4 driver purchase would make me the "Kramer" of the 2019 WITB Challenge....

    After additional thought, maybe we also run a "Biggest Ho" contest for 2019...could be judged by number of items purchased, $ spent, or maybe both. I'd probably have a much better chance at that contest than this one, sadly.
