Was about to sell off my half set of HMB’s and decided to throw them in a Sunday bag and add some old favorites. Hit them with the BB&F treatment and here it is.  

35y m back at it after a short 20 year hiatus. This forum has actually helped me to reprogram my brain on what golf is. Starting back at it with a half set and really enjoying every aspect of being ou

Updated my nostalgia inspired minimalist setup. Superquad TP and Napa in.

This is one of my favorite topics of threads. Sorry in advance for the lackluster pictures, but they will suffice. Here we go.

 

My 7 club setup goes as follows: D, 5i, 7i, 9i, GW, SW, P

 

Driver: Taylormade SLDR, a neighbor gave it to me. Definitely not my specs, but I hit it hard and seem to control it fine. It works for me.

Irons: Srixon z765, using 5, 7, 9. Love these clubs, not getting rid of them anytime soon.

Wedges: GW: Wilson harmonized 50*. Crappy club, but gets the job done for $19.99 lol. I'll probably invest in a nicer gap wedge sometime in the near future. SW: Titleist SM6 56*. my local shop gave me a good deal at $75 new.

Putter: Retro Ping Kushin I took from my dad because I like the feel of it so much.

Bag: Old Sun Mountain Sunday bag I found at my High School's lost and found. Works beautifully.

 

Its pretty ragtag, but I've played my best golf just using this setup. I shot a 37 the other day with it, and I like the package so much its been my daily bag whenever I go out. I seem to not only enjoy the game more but go lower. Anyway, that's my minimalist bag.

 

Whatever works!

I bought a Sun Mountain Sunday bag like yours in 2012, loved it. Became so tattered by 2018, I pitched it. Bought it new for $50, so it didn't owe me anything. During that time, I bought 2 Jones from the company website. One, paid full price, the other was a grab bag thing the company ran a couple years ago. Got a nice one for $60. Jones bags wear like iron.

Grab bag sale is worth the wait.

My full bag which I don’t normally play it often. Usually I’d take a 3W and PW out and only play the rest (or take 4, 6, 8 and PW). I bent 58 to 56 I think. Bag is Vessel Sunday 2.0 single strap perfect for carrying.

Some good ones here, surprised to see none of you gave any of the posts a like or a reply - kinda funny to me anyways.

 

I'll post a pic at some point of my current set up. 8 clubs, but 3 wedges and 2 putters (one lofted).

 

Irons:

3i (delofted a few extra degrees), 6i, 9i - apex 19

 

Wedges:

50 (A) - apex 19

60 - Cleveland rtx 588 satin 2013 60 -dynamic gold

72 bombtech

 

Putter - scotty

Putter 2 (lofted) - ben sayers

 

I use a push cart/trolley, I hate carrying (I hate pulling trolley too) and I rarely use a cart/buggy.

 

added a pic, forgot I carried the ben sayers too

 

If I really do carry a bag and play serious then it's

4i, 7i (apex 19)

60 degree wedge

Putter - scotty

 

4 clubs.

 

Split grip even further below.

Here's what I've mostly played this year.... I go with one aim, shoot 78 or below and I'm happy. Its my challenge each weekend/midweek and its fun!

Srixon driver, ram 7 wood, ping eye2 4,6,8,pw. Ping karsten iii sw and taylormade rossa putter. Making 8. Getting banged up now but they've served me well.... Really could do with a new bag, it's looking tired these days... Maybe Xmas present to myself for 2020

The most interesting minimalist bag I've seen - a chipper, a 72 degree wedge, and no wood ... But if it works, it works, and that's the great thing about minimalist bags.

Personally I liked all of them---- I also play some minimalist golf in my fall Sunday afternoon walking rounds----- The thing with me that also makes it fun is I have so much stuff especially classic stuff I switch around a lot but always carry some sort of persimmon driver and 1 iron. One of the ways I get to play a lot of my classic stuff.

3W  TM V-Steel 15* bent to 14 NVS green Aldila 65gr R

7W TM V-steel 21* Ust Pro Force Gold 65 R

9W TM V-Steel 24* Stock TM S flex

1 iron Ping Eye 2 KT Blue label M flex

Irons 5 thru PW 1980 Macgregor VIP Hogan Apex #2 shafts

SW Cleveland 588 56* S-400 sensicore S soft tipped 2x

LOL Over the years I have seen some guys that can hit a variety of different shots with those chippers. And I would be willing to bet he is one of those

I only use it near the green currently. Going out today with 3w, 5i, wedge and putter in the bag. I'll post a pic later and my score. I'm playing with a split grip today so ball could go anywhere. I play off 15 with a proper golf grip, probably more like 30 with a split grip. Ok I promised a score. I was about right. Played to a 30 handicap. I made a birdie at least.

To be honest I think using a heavy push trolley burnt me out. Through June-end of July I played about 30 rounds of golf using a push trolley that's base weight is 8kg before the clubs even go on, played 14 clubs and carried water bottles. Four wheels. It's good because it's like you have a caddy, you can put stuff in compartments. But it's cumbersome and tiresome. I won't be using it again this year and will only use 3 or 4 clubs per round from now on with a lightweight bag with tees and a few balls in. I have your thinking now.

I'm thinking of having a tweak... Have a brilliant half set of ping karsten iii irons which I enjoy hitting. Someone has offered me good money for my full set eye 2s.... Going a get myself a new lite carry bag. Need a stand I think as the weather gets awful in the uk and I get caught out.... I'll post some pictures soon when I'm sorted

I wish I had a decent camera so I could show my current minimalist setup. I play with 5 clubs 99% of the time. I have a 19* hybrid, 4 ironwood, 8i, a 50* wedge and a putter in a srixon pencil bag. Played most of my best rounds with 5 or 6 clubs. Its crazy but when I hit shots that require imagination I seem to do better than when I'm just hitting stock shots.
