    My whole WITB isn’t worth %500 !!!!

    Ping G2 – 15.5º, 400cc driver
    Powerbilt TPXL 3,4,5, and 7 fairways
    Ping G2 4HL and 6 big flange irons
    Ping Zing2 – 1 to 9 irons, Green dot, +1″ !!!!
    Ping Zing2 W, SW, LS, L
    Spaulding T.P.M 6 true blade putter.
    —–
    I mix and match the set for playing conditions. Oh, I also retired my 10.5º and 12º Powerbilt drivers… 400cc and 320cc respectively. The 15.5º G2 (Lady’s) driver is a recent addition with trade-in of useless putters costing me $0. I hope it works!!!

    Andrew,
    I think with another $220 left in the budget you can do better than an Acushnet Bullseye putter.

    I recently reworked my bag from eBay, WRX and Callaway pre-owned, all left hand. It goes slightly over the $750 price but it did come with a 4th wedge I will be selling.

    Driver: Callaway GBB w/ shaft…………$150
    3-Wood: SLDR-S Mini Driver……………$60
    Hybrid: TaylorMade SLDR-S…………….$30
    Irons (4-PW): Callaway X-Forged 2013…..$315
    Wedges: Callaway MD3 Milled…………..$160
    Putter: Odyssey White Ice #9………….$50

    Total:……………………………..$765

    Probably close to my current bag:
    Taylormade M2 2016 $210
    Nike VR Pro Limited 3 wood $50
    Nike VR Pro 21 Degree Hybird $40
    Nike VR Pro Pro Combo $200
    Nike Engage 52, 56 60 square $150
    Nike Method Matter Newport head $60

    Driver: $50
    712U 2 Iron: $100
    Srixon 965’s TI X100s: $500
    Browning Wedge Set: $70
    Old Blade Putter: $30

    Driver technology really has only changed marginally since 2010 and don’t really need a fairway wood. Irons the most important thing to me for any set of clubs.
