Recommended Posts

GD has a build your own bag section on their website. I took the quiz and it recommended the following:

 

Driver: TM SIM Max2

Fairway: Callaway Epic Max

Hybrid: TE Exotics C721

Irons: Callaway Apex 2021

Wedges: TM Milled Grind 2

Putter: Bettinardi Studio Stock Blade

 

If you want to take the quiz, here is the link. What does GD recommend for you?

It gave me almost nothing I would normally choose.  

It did not recommend blades with X100 shafts. Clearly, it doesn't understand I came from GolfWRX.

Here's what I got...

 

Driver: TM SIM2 Max

Fairway: Ping G425 SFT

Hybrid: Calla Apex Pro

Irons: Distance with Control: Honma TR21x or JPX921 Forged

Wedges: King Cobra SB

Putter: Ping Heppler Blade

===============

* Driver offered choice of high with carry vs. lower with roll.. I took high, but really prefer medium trajectory

* Fairway - any SFT I have ever tried delivered hook city... If anything, I would be likely to get a 17* and loft it down to get a slightly open clubface

* Irons - I'm actually looking for a middle earth design, forgiveness + control; as of now Ping G425 on my short list (got rough fitting in January)

 

===================

These online fittings can be a bit bizarre in outcomes. About three years ago, I got recommended for a 5W, with 2H + 4H. If I need a 5w for my sole fairway, what are chances I can get a 2H airborne? 

 

What's In The Bag (Summary as of October 2020)

 

Driver:  Tour Edge EXS 10.5°, weights neutral   ||  FWs:  Calla Rogue 4W + 7W

Hybrid:  Calla Big Bertha OS 4H at 22°  ||  Irons:  Tour Edge CB Pro Tungsten 4i-9i

Wedges*:  Calla MD3: 48°, 54°... MD4: 58° ||  Putter: Ping Sigma G Tyne (face-balanced)

Ball: Calla SuperHot (Orange preferred)  ||  Bag: Sun Mountain Three 5 stand bag

For details see:  Pending (need protocol to embed file list).

     * MD4 54°/10 S-Grind being tested as possible SW to replace MD3 54°/12 W-Grind.

Driver: Callaway Epic Max LS 

3 wood: Ping G425 SFT

Hybrid: Callaway Apex 

Irons: Mizuno JPX921 Tour

Wedges: Titleist Vokey SM8

Putter: Bettanardi Queen Bee Blade

 

All in all this isn’t that different than what’s in my bag now, except for the hook machine in the fairway slot. I could play that bag just fine, except the soles in Mizunos don’t work for me. With the multiple options they listed as alternatives though, something would’ve fit; 620CB, TC-201, ZX7. 

TSi3 9* / Ventus Black 6x

Driver: Sim2 Max (I'm playing a Radspeed XB, so not an unreasonable suggestion) 

Fairway: Callaway Epic Max (I'm using a Mizuno ST-Z)

Hybrid: Mizuno CLK (I'm in the market so I might consider this one, though leaning G425)

Irons: Callaway X Forged CB (not far off my current couple of sets)

Wedges: PXG Sugar Daddy 0311 (maybe a fine suggestion but, tbh, I would never play anything called "sugar daddy" ... sticking with Cleveland RTX 4 for now though I'll need to replace them by this summer) 

Putter: Bettinardi Studio Stock Blade (good suggestion; am about to start using a White Hot OG #1)

 

I will say, as someone who got back into golf last year and is taking lessons and at least somewhat rapidly improving, adjustability and having a stock shaft that I love (thus, Radspeed and ST-Z with the Motore X this year; after tons of testing I've found that shaft has been a game-changer vs. the used stuff I'd previously picked up cheap as I got back into it) are probably more important to me than the head itself.

Let's see what I can pick out and use the best they offer. 

 

Driver: Callaway Epic Max LS

3W: G425 Max

Hybrid: Mizuno CLK

Irons: Callaway X Forged CB

Wedges: TaylorMade Milled Grind 2

Putter: PXG Battle Ready/SIK Putter

 

I could maybe play that bag, would definitely need to try that driver, the hybrid I'd drop cause I don't think it adjusts flat. Irons look nice, wedges are actually on my radar, putter I'd be happy with either, I do own a SIK just not the DW they suggested. 

 

Honestly the questionnaire is pretty vague but fun if bored.

Wedges:  Cobra SB

Putter:  Betti stock blade, Edel blade, Toulon blade, SC blade.

 

Fairway and putter was basically dumb.  For putters, just list all the blades and it might work...  As for fairway, it gave me options that were glued hosel when I said adjustable.  I also have no interest with Cobra wedges, as does pretty well everyone else, so why would it suggest that...

That hybrid is actually one of the flattest in standard setting and does go flatter. It was one of the best hybrids I had tried.

Would have to beat the Ping which is a hard task honestly.

When it came to wedges, I was asked if I would be willing to pay more than $150 for a wedge. Answering yes gave me the PXG Sugar Daddy 0311 wedges for $650/ea. 

 

While I think this tool will be helpful for some, I also think that there could have been some more valuable questions related to my golf game that were more in line with the questions for the other clubs in the bag. For example, I would think it would be better to ask about distance gapping, turf interaction, whether or not I open or close the face for certain shots, etc. instead of whether or not I would pay more than $150 for a wedge.

 

Just my $0.02
