2019 January Bag is Set Challenge - for the hos


Recommended Posts

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 :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/ PX 6.0 HZRDUS yellow (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

I’m all set for 2019 and feel confident I’ll be able to succeed...until I cave in.

 

Anyway my bag is as follows:

 

Callaway Rogue Driver 9* set to 10*

Callaway Rogue 3 - 5 Wood

Mizuno JPX 900 Forged 4-5 Irons

Mizuno JPX 900 Tour 6-PW

I’ll occasionally put my Apex UT 2 Iron in the bag but thats very rare.

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'm out as I need to change putters for different courses.

 

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..

 

How about a daily thread?

 

Then I suspect this thread would become the longest ever thread in the history of WRX...

Bought a new driver (TS3) on Jan. 4 - am I disqualified?

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).

I live in Florida. There is no offseason. I have golf courses and golf shops everywhere. Add this forum into this mix and the urge to "ho" is strong.

 

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

Driver: Titleist Tsi3 w/HZRDUS Smoke Yellow TX 6.0 
3 Wood: Cobra King Speedzone/HZRDUS Smoke Yellow 70

5 Wood: Callaway Mavrik Subzero/Aldila Rogue White 70
Long Irons (4-6): Wilson D7 Forged/DG120TI
Short Irons (7-P): Wilson Staff Model Blade/DG120TI

Wedges (50/54/58): Callaway Jaws MD5 w/TI S200
Putter: Original Odyssey White Hot XG No. 7

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....

Ok, received the putter today and went to the range this morning to finalize hybrids so here's my set-up for 2019:

Miura Wedge Series 51* and 57*

It's going to be challenging but I really want to get used to these clubs and just work on my swing and conditioning.

Honma TW 747 455 10.5* Driver

Tour Edge Exotics EX9 Tour 17* 4 Wood

Honma TR 21 Hybrid 21*
