Nice to see the MP-52’s I used to have a set of MP30s which was similar.

I do have an MP 30 6 iron for practice, great feeling and looking club. Its bent severely upright (3*) vs 1* flat in my MP52s as I have been fighting a shallowish plane with ugly hooks for years. My pro gave me that club with the words: Try to make that thing fade and your plane might correct itself. It worked to some degree ;)

First update:

1. I bought a mini-Tripod for my iPhone and took my swing on camera. Did some minor fixes to setup. I noticed that I was very close to the ball. I focused on getting my hands right below my shoulders and my strike improved quite a bit. I also ordered some impact tape as I seem to hit everything really heely at the moment, which kind of confirms the "to close to the ball" theory.

2. I had 2 range sessions in freezing cold conditions for doing a 4 wood vs hybrid shootout. Result: Golf is golf and makes no sense. I bought the 4 wood because I dont hit the hybrid high or consistent enough. Since then, I've been striping the hybrid lol. Weird game. Will have to get it on grass as it is only matts on the range at the moment.

3. I actually did hold out from buying the L.A.B. putter as I want to get some lessons and Shot Scope Data in before deciding which end of the bag I want to start with.

Great looking set for where you're at in your game. My biggest takeaway may be you'll need to continue to learn those irons. For that type of index perhaps a more focused game-improvement iron would help out quite a bit as those may be a little more forgiving. 

 

OR, keep enjoying the game and perfecting the sweet spot on those. Either way, it's golf, and perfection doesn't exist. Enjoy your club, cheers to the 2021 season!

I did try bigger irons, they‘re Not for me. My misses are either very small and are fine with my irons. Or they are BIG (chunks or blades) and no iron will save me from those. I do think a little help would benefitial but it’s not really the most urgent thing in my bag to replace.

 

BTW: my DF 2.1 shipped today

There is a new putter in town. Only had about an hour on a sanded and aerified green but like it so far. I did write down my first thoughts in the LAB Golf thread. I will post my findings after I get on course with it and will also take some more pictures when the weather/light is a bit nicer.

 

The DF 2.1 is off to a good start but actually my putting cant get much worse at this point so the bar is quite low

  • Bunkersarebigcups changed the title to bunkersarebigcups' WITB - new putter from L.A.B. Golf in the bag

Some additional pics, my experience with the putter is in the L.A.B. golf thread, page 53.

Additional thoughts: Love the headcover, its super high quality and the magnets are strong enough to "hang" it on an iron while I am on the green. Only negative so far is the amount of space the putter takes in the bag but other than that it is a huge game changer for me. It just performs.

  • Bunkersarebigcups changed the title to bunkersarebigcups' WITB - new putter (L.A.B. Golf) and new "old" 3wood in the bag

After I have some rounds in with ShotScope, it does point out 2 weaknesses in my set makeup that I kinda solved in one step.

 

1. my 21* hybrid is onle 5-7 yards longer than my 4i (190 yards tops)  and I really dont use it all that often. I do not have that yardage very often and its usually on a par 5. I tend to either use my other hybrid (220 max) or my 4i with those, depending on pin position and the ideal miss.

 

2. 3 hybrid is my second longest club after my driver and there is a big gap. I do have 4-5 holes where driver brings a lot of trouble into play (doglegs, water and bunkers mainly) but the hybrid makes the second shot a lot longer. 18.5* hybrid is around 225 avg off the tee, while driver is 260+. 

 

So i removed the 21* and put a new "old" 3 wood in the bag, my RBZ which I abandoned some years ago because I hit it like crap.

But my swing has improved since and in the two rounds I used it in, it did pretty much what I want it to do: 245-250 (total yardage) off the tee and also good off the ground. Its not a 250-yards-and-stop-on-a-dime club off the turf, but in reality, there is only two Par 5s where I need that kind of yardages and one is pretty much a forced carry so I lay up anyways. If the experiment works out, i might look at a fitting for an easier to launch 3wood, but right now it seems like it does what I need it to do.

 

Apart from that, the putter is still great (and still improving) and my swing is trending in the right direction. Still dont hit a ton of greens, but its getting better and I cant remember ever striking the ball in the middle that often. Hard work paying off I guess.

nice setup 🙂  Old irons are nothing to complain about, the headcovers on the other hand ..... 😛 They look pretty disgusting (sorry)

 

Really jealous of your new putter !  Looks great. Ivhad been looking for a blue one, but i wasn't willing to buy it new, so they were pretty hard to come by second hand.

 

3W has a nice low profile.

I'd say the headcovers are 'well experienced'! I am currently searching custom headcovers for 3wood and hybrid, as they are not going to leave the bag anytime soon. Driver is about to be replaced some time this summer and I might stay with the stock headcover depending on what brand I go for.

Putter is really nice and the pics dont do the blue any justice

Have you been enjoying the LAB DF?

Yes, absolutely. Still getting used to it in terms of distance control, but it is getting better every round.

short and medium putts with it are insane. As long as i have got setup and ease my grip pressure, every single putt starts on line. Its so good, its ridiculous
