What is the biggest surprise you added to your bag in 2021?


Recommended Posts

Shafts I previously knew little about: Project X Catalyst 6.0 graphite iron shafts. It really is a constant weight, low torque, Project X profile you can hit all day and it won’t leave you hurting. With so much attention on Recoil, Steelfiber and the new MMTs, True Temper gets overlooked in this category.

Better health. Have been battling knee and ankle issues the past three seasons that's greatly impacted my swing and game. At this point (knock wood) the heath is looking better and that's the "surpris

I have two:   1) A 9-wood (Ping G425 cranked down to 22.0 degrees). This will rotate with my 4 iron depending on course and conditions. Goes same distance as 4i but stops on a dime.  

The Sonartec hybrid listed below.  I hit 4/4 greens with it on Tuesday.  It cost me a princely $15.

I had a pretty standard set of sand and lob wedges for years.  56* and 62* degree models, usually Callaway.  The 62* never got used because it is frankly difficult to execute for this 15 hcp.  I went with something more forgiving and within my skill range so got a Ping Glide 3.0 wide-sole 54* for chipping and a Glide 3.0 Eye2 for sand shots. They both get used all the time and work great for my skill level.

Gotta say that the 2021 Apex Pro 3 hybrid with a Ventus Black 10, has been the most surprising.  I have ever had a hybrid that is this consistent, it’s surpassed my old 818 h2 in every way, and I never thought I would find anything better than that.

Epic Max 5 wood is a beast, long and straight. Also the Ping 410 5 hybrid is a solid "get the job done" club. I have a lot of confidence with both. My F9 7 wood is fighting for it's life not to be replaced by the Epic Max 7 wood.

I won a custom TM Sim2 in a raffle.  Got fitted and will be in bag when it arrives.

 

Have never owned or been a fan of TM clubs, but I'm not gonna turn down  a custom fitting, custom colors free driver... We'll see if it can permanently replace my beloved Fly Z+ with Oban revenge 6S shaft.

I’m still waiting to find out. Possibly our course will open in the next 10 days which would be one of the earliest in 100 years.

So far my biggest surprise has been the fact I keep adding to my bag. I REALLY think I am done and feel really good about it.

I've only purchased one club this year, an Adams speedline plus 5 hybrid, but I've only played one round. It seems to perform well enough. Right now I'm seriously considering getting myself a new (actually new, not new to me) driver and getting custom fitted.

Right now he problem is I'm at the weird point of my budget will only allow me to get maybe 3 clubs, but if I wait a month or so, I could increase the available clubs. However he club ho urge is strong.

I would have to say my KING COBRA TOUR MIM irons. Long irons are as easy to hit as my 8 iron. I had PING G710's before and I find these to be just as forgiving and there has not been a better feeling forged iron out there that feels any better to me than my MIM's. These irons should be on everyone list to try when looking for a new set.

Picked up a Ping g410 4h that I finally had a chance to hit last week.  Soooooo easy to hit and just as long as my fairway wood.  It made such an impression that I immediately bought a 5h off ebay to go with it.

Biggest surprise this year is putting my old TM 200 Steel 3 wood back in the bag. I hit it so solid, it's back to stay.

Getting fitted for wedges has helped my scoring tremendously. Before this all I had was a PW and SW. I now have a 52, 56,a and 60 degree wedge and has allowed me to hit shots out of any lie I come across from 110 on in.

How much has your scoring dropped?

Ping G425 3 and 4 hybrids. Have never had any luck hitting Ping hybrids but once I had a club pro help me with my ball placement and address, theses things are automatic and maybe the easiest clubs I’ve ever hit consistently straight...

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
