Forum Thread of the Day: “In honor of the new ‘WITB Time Machine,’ what’s your WITB from 5 and 10 years ago?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from WristySwing who has been enjoying our WITB Time Machine segment and has been interested to hear what was in fellow WRXers’ bags back in the day. Our members have been sharing the equipment they used both five and ten years ago, with some items remaining to this day.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • NRJyzr: “10 years ago: driver: SMT Encore 9*, AJ Tech ZTour 90 X -3 wood: Trimetal Plus 14*, DG-SL X100 – 2-PW: Mizuno MS-11 – wedges: Mizuno Pro 52*, Ram Troon Grind 58* -putter: Snake Eyes Viper Tour Sv1. 5 years ago: driver: Adams Fast 12 LS, Motore F1 75 S – 3w: a cast of several, maybe R11s, Aldila NV85 X – 2-PW: Ram TG-898, Precision 6.5 – wedges: Scratch 8620 53* and Ram 1982 Commemorative 58* – putter: Snake Eyes Viper Tour Sv1. Forgot to mention hdcp… I was about a 7 to 8 index in 2009, and I’m about a 7 to 8 at the end of 2019. I dropped to a 5-6 in 2012 and 2013, and have largely bounced between 6 and 8 over the last 11 years.
  • jkinger89: 10 Years Ago: Driver: Titleist 909D3 with stock VooDoo stiff, Fairway: Sonartec NP 99 15* with Alidila NV 75 stiff, Irons: Taylormade 2009 Tour Preferred 3-PW with Dynamic Gold S300, Wedges: Taylormade RAC Black TP 52-56-60 with stock shafts S300’s?, Putter: Scotty Cameron Studio Select Newport 2 or Scotty Cameron Pro Platinum Newport 2 Mil Spec or Odyssey Rossie II (I switched every couple rounds back then). 5 Years Ago: Driver: Nike VRS Tour Covert with Fujikura Tour Spec 60 x-stiff, Fairway: Nike Covert with Matrix HD6 stiff, Irons: Titleist 712 mb with Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S300?, Wedges: Vokey SM4 52-56-60 with stock S300 , Putter: Scotty Cameron Pro Platinum Newport 2 Mil Spec or Scotty Cameron Futura X. My handicap has improved over the last few years. Hover around scratch depending on the streak. But that’s from playing smarter, not really any better.
  • kmay_: ” My bag from when I was around 15 stayed the same right thru till the last couple of years when I’ve gotten serious about the game. It was as follows..TM R580 10.5 with a 35g reg flex grafalloy shaft, Goliath 3 wood 15* stock shaft, TNT Gold irons 3-PW, 60* Powerbilt Walmart model wedge, Bullseye flange putter. And yes my play is greatly improved but much more a result of practice and playing often!
  • Matty01984: “This is me from 5 years ago: Driver – 913D3, Fairway Wood – 910F, Irons – 712U 3 iron & 714AP2 4 to PW, Wedges – SM5 52, 56 and 60, Putter – Scotty GoLo S5. No pictures from 10 years ago but that would have been: Driver – 909D3, Fairway Wood – 904F (with a steel X100 shaft…what was I thinking), Irons – Original AP2, Wedges – Vokey’s of some kind but genuinely not sure, Putter – Scotty Select Newport 1.5.

Today from the Forums: “Best 54/56-degree wedge for a sweeper?”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 54 and 56-degree wedges which are effective on full shots from tight lies. WRXer, 10of14, is a sweeper of the ball and has reached out to fellow members who have been giving their suggestions in our forum.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • dhen9: “M grind or ES Glide 2.0.”
  • PowerCobra98: “Callaway MD4 or MD5 with the C Grind.”
  • bsb70x7: “I am a sweeper and a low bounce player. I play Vokey 54 with 10* of bounce (as my highest bounce). You may want to go with 8* of bounce if you use your Lob wedge in the sand.”
  • NYCGolfNut: “I’m the same. M grind Vokey – 8 deg bounce, heel and toe relief. Works great.”

Today from the Forums: “Searching for a 5-wood”

Published

on

Today from the Forums we take a look at 5-woods, with WRXer, RAMDAN, on the hunt for a new addition to his bag. Our members discuss the options on the market and give their take on the best models from their experiences.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • Golf64: “Cobra F8 and 9s are still out there, and the new SZ is nice too. I prefer Ping, love the look and feel and easy to get in the air!!”
  • KGilma: “I just replaced my F6 baffler with the F9. It is a definite upgrade. I still have the F6 if you’re interested.”
  • bjh1: “Recently got an Epic Flash 5 wood (regular, not sub-zero), and I am loving it! Can’t go wrong sticking with the Callaway.”
  • jah7838: “I agree with those mentioning the Baffler and the other various Cobra offerings. F8+ and F9 Tour are really good clubs. I just got the F9 Tour 3 wood, and it’s really easy to elevate with the right shaft. I still have my Baffler that I’m going to mess around with as my 5 wood. I was using it as my 4 wood for last season, and really liked it, but I found a good deal on a like-new F9 Tour 3 wood that I couldn’t pass up. The issue I’m going to have with the Baffler as my 5 wood is that I’ve had my Adams 19* XTD Super Hybrid that it’s going to have to beat out. I’ve had that club for so long now, and I’m going to have a hard time not keeping that one in the bag. It’s not a knock on the Baffler; it’s just how much I trust the XTD.”
  • AG12: “I just was given a PING G410 5W to try, and I think it’s the easiest FW to elevate and just wants to go straight. I think j the Tour 75 shaft that PING offers is a great shaft as well. Worth a look if you’re in the market.”
