I appreciate all the input. I am definitely going to get a round or two in while I’m in town. I got everything booked so the only thing left to do is wait. I haven’t read anything bad about the fitting experience and this is going to be my first time getting fit for clubs so I anticipation grows by the day. Figured I’d list whats in my bag now and update this after my fitting. Reading the many reviews and experiences on here made booking the trip easier with every read.
This is the only driver I’ve ever owned. It is going to be a sad day when my red baby gets taken out of the bag. This thing has been through it but feels as hot as it did in 2013. Ive played it exactly how it came out of the plastic.

I got the 3 wood with the driver so the history is deep with that one. It’s odd seeing a fixed hosel on a club these days. I have never really gotten comfortable with this club so it will be nice to get a fresh start with something. The 5 wood is my baby and I am interested to see if a hybrid takes this clubs spot or I stay with a 5 wood. I took my gap wedge out to have another spot for a club at this end of the bag. I think the average golfer needs more help at this end rather than 4 loft options around the green.

I made the switch from my Nike VR_S Pro Combo to these blades after getting them in the most ludicrous golf swap ever. A buddy of mine needed a Nintendo Switch for his baby sister when they were in popular demand so he gave me a full set of 716 MBs for the Nintendo Switch I had. These suckers were in immaculate shape and basically cost me 300 bucks. I want to blend a set of the MBs with some help in the 4 and 5 iron and probably replace my 3 with a hybrid or utility. I am looking forward to optimizing iron specs. Switching to blades and realizing first hand that they were aren’t as big of a game changer as cliche golf talk makes them out to be has been a pleasant experience over the past year

I love these things. Slight love hate relationship with them because they contributed to the fasciitis in my elbow but these are the only clubs that have my personal touch on them. I got the blacked out SM6s and soaked/scrubbed them until they appeared as raw steel. Then I colored the paint fill in to match the schools that I have coached football at. I plan to do the same with a new lineup of SM8s and want to dive into stamping. The old SM6s will be great for practice.

Got this sucker from Golfsmith circa 2014 for 150 bucks off. The Nike Method I owned at the time had a very high resale value apparently. (Cashier at Golfsmith was shocked lmao). I sent it to the custom shop to have it tricked out and love the result. I want to start a Scotty Collection and eventually put this one up on the wall. A new Phantom 5.5 would be nice but that may be purchased later in the summer. From the website it doesn’t seem like TPI does putter fittings. Makes sense with the SC Gallery being so close.
