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.  

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

Here is my homemade minimalist set. A 2000 era Macgragor M38 9.5d driver cut down to 44.5" and with a 88g mid-hi launch shaft (my version of the Original Mini Driver). The Irons 5-7-9-G are Acer Tour XV blade with Apollo 105g S shaft tipped a little. It is a very soft cast SS like I had in another set of Golfsmith irons that feel as good as some real forged blades I have played in the past. While they were very inexpensive these are some of the prettiest blade looking clubs I have ever seen, with very little offset. The quality isn't up to par with other clubs but at $14 a head I figure I'll just have them stripped and rechromed one day. The wedge is from Bang a 60d. The 15 degree hybrid 2i I got from Monark Golf. It actually looks about 16.5 deg. Also, it came in at 216 grams which is a lot lighter than most hybrid heads of this loft so I added extra length, from 40.75" to 42" w/a 92g shaft so it now looks and plays like a 5 wood, except the face is absolutely square, which had been difficult to find in fairway woods. The putter is a Ping Anser w/a round grip, but I am changing it to a WS 8883 copy.

image.pngI just replaced the 905R with a Superquad TP. Eventually I'll find an old Napa to replace the 2 ball as my regular gamer is a heel shafted putter. This sits in the trunk most days or my office and I will run out to the short course by my house after work and have a blast. I am really enjoying this as it makes the game very different. Alot of flighted shots.

First I will start by saying I'm not a great golfer. I am a bogey golfer with my handicap between 18-20 most of the time. I never had much control over drivers and don't have the time to put into my game to really work at hitting one. I'm very short and have always had good success hitting hybrids. On a good pop I get 200 yards out of my 3hybrid. The three courses I play are fairly short for today's standards so I don't need to be super long to break 100 which at the end of the day is all I'm looking to do. A handful of easy to hit clubs that I know well is all I need to enjoy the game. I'm not really score obsessed just enjoy a light bag and a nice walk around the course. My last round on a 5,900 yard course with this set I shot a 94 +22. The rating for the course was 70/128. Could I play better with a more conventional set? Sure but this is how I enjoy the game the most. Cheers.

Started a seperate thread on these but thought I'd share them here as well now that I finally got them all shafted. 

The kicker is that I'm finding the regular flex in the irons too soft as it seems my swing speed is up quite a bit since I last got fitted

Right, the weather is beyond terrible so no golf and the footy match is dull... So here's my full time bag now:

 

Cobra f9 driver

Callaway warbird 5 wood

Mizuno mp h5 4 iron

Mizuno jpx hot metal pro 6,8 & pw

Ping k3 sw

Taylormade ghost half moon putter

 

It got me round fairly well this year, most of this set is new so still bedding in

** Full disclosure - I haven’t tried gaming this set yet, but thought it would be fun to recreate my high school set makeup. **
 

Driver (Just a decoration, since I usually smoked par 4/5’s off the tee with the long irons at the time.)

2, 4, 6, 8, PW (All Nike Split Cavity Protos), SW (Nike Engage Toe Sweep)

Putter (Ping Scottsdale Anser BECU)

 

Looks darn good in the 90’s era Jones Houndstooth stand bag with the Pebble Beach Golf Links towel from Sir Christopher Kotton.  

Maybe this can trigger something for me to try gaming this setup again.

This is the Emperor's half bag.  I use it when I don't feel like carrying.  It has 8 clubs, none of which are new and they all have the weaker lofts.  The 3 wood is about 40 years old, a Head Premise with 15.5 degrees of loft and very easy to use.  I don't have much problem with long and middle irons, so I put in Mizuno T-Zoid Pro II 3 and 5 irons.  The rest of the irons are a mix of Titleist clubs: 990 7 iron, 762 9 iron, DCI Black PW and a '95 DCI Black sand wedge.  The putter is an old STX Anser-style putter I putt very well with.  I always keep this in the trunk of my car in case I need clubs right away for whatever reason.  I shoot about the same with these clubs compared to my full sets.  I like the odds because don't like 8 iron then wedge because that gap is more important, so that's why I prefer 9, PW and SW.
