I'll be one of the first ones out, just on the putter alone, but whatever. Here goes nothing...

Titleist 915 D3 w/ Rogue Silver 70 TX
Titleist 909 F2 w/ Grafalloy blue X (NEVER leaving my bag)

Vokey 56º C-C, Stock TT DG S-200
Vokey 60º SM5, Stock TT DG S-200
Odyssey Versa 7 (this is gonna get replaced with the old Scotty at the first sign of non-compliance lol)

Question though. There's a good chance my 52º won't make it through the season due to wear. You can't buy SM4's anymore, so if I replace it with a 52º SM6, is that still considered "Replacement in kind"?

If you actually "wear out" a wedge, then yes, you can replace it with a similar replacement wedge and still be in the club.  Same would go for shafts or clubs that are broken through "reasonable" circumstances.
M1 430 w/Rogue
E8 ß 12° w/Rogue
3DX Genex 18.5° w/VS Proto
AP2 4-W w/DG

I'll give this a go. I do have one question tho. I have a 5 wood , driving iron, and a hybrid I switch in and out depending on the course and weather etc.  Will that be allowed?  I tend to drop my 3 wood from time to time and play both a 5 wood and driving iron or hybrid, some days it's 3 and 5 wood etc.  You get the point.

It's that time of year again!  Let's see how long into the new year those of us who want to get off the "train" can last.  

Here are the rules for 2017's "Bag is Set" club:

1. You must set your bag BEFORE your first golf-like activity of 2017.  First round, first range trip, first trip to the practice green, first session hitting balls in your $2,800 garage simulator setup, whatever.  Post your full bag setup in this thread to "set" your bag.
2.  Put your bag in the post on this thread.  "See sig" doesn't work for this one because the sig can change.  No editing your original post, we need hard evidence, people!
3.  Grips and specs are the only thing that may be changed throughout the year.  You may adjust lofts, lies, etc. and you may replace/change grips.  But, no new heads, shafts, 15th clubs, etc.  It's a challenge!
4.  There is no fame, fortune, and very little glory for completing this challenge, at least none that I'm aware of.
5.  Check back in if (when) you change something.  It's part of the fun!

I'll put mine in before the end of 2016, but for now, I've still got 11 days to scratch the itch!

I forgot to mention, put your handicap in your posts, if you want to.  Let's see if those that stick with their sets drop their 'caps and see which way the "tinkerers" 'cap goes!

So how does it work if I know what will be in the bag and it is currently on order?

Who was I trying to kid here? In the five days since my post I have changed putters and am probably going to put my chipper today in the bag to replace the 4-iron.

Once Jan 1 arrives the over/under on my first bag change is about three weeks. And I'd take the under if I were betting...

Everything has its drawbacks, as the man said when his mother-in-law died, and they came down upon him for the funeral expenses.

Just added the last piece of the puzzle so I'm good to go.

TEE Tour Proto 10 with vs proto 70 stiff.
Tour Edge bazooka 15 with stock grafalloy in stiff.
Bridgestone J33 air muscle 2 iron with nv 85 stiff.
Cleveland cg16 non tours with stock reg, 4-P.
Cobra Phil Rodgers 50 with S300.
Cleveland cg14 56 with stock reg.
Macgregor Tourney forged 60 with S300.
BHBB 12 Hawk, cut down to 33" with fatso 5.0.

Only club will struggle to stick with is driver as I have 4 in the rotation, but I want to stick to one so see how I go.
I adhered to the no edit rule so used a reply. I got a r7 460 and plan on puttimg it into play a couple times before Dec 31. I will put another post up if I go back to something else, if not I will go with the same line up with the r7 as driver. Either way I go, I fully intend to keep whatever bag I start 2017 with for the whole year. At least thats the plan.

Odyssey Metal X 7 Mid 37" Arm Lock

need to update the sig.... changed loft on driver, cut the 200 wedge, cut the crossover for the regular iron.

No 15th club is boo!  On two local courses, I swap the driver for a 64*

Subscribing to the no edit rule, the wife got me a bettenardi kuchar #1 arm lock at 37.5" for xmas and that will replace the old odyssey arm lock before Jan 1!

Holy smokes the bettenardi is nice. Probably spelling that wrong but if your a golf gear head and you've never hit one to try one out. I've never felt a putter that feels so perfect and looks so nice. Headcover with kuchar's signature is a bit cheesy but other than that no complaints. Never felt as nice a putter as the bettenardi (sp).

Other than that no changes. It's gonna be awkward when I face him at the WGC match play with his signature on my putter tho.

I'm in. I just filled the attic with all the extra putters, wedges, woods, and irons, (many newer than the keepers) just to keep them out of harms way. These clubs are not that new, could be had for cheap, but it does play very well:
Taylormade RBZ 9.5*
Taylormade Retro Raylor 16*
Wilson Staff Pi5 4-PW
Cleveland CG14 56*
Ping Anser 3

Reminds me of that Seinfeld episode where the crew tries to go as long as they can without pleasuring themselves........ there's no chance I'll make through the year without at least a few guilty pleasures.   Good luck WRXers

That is the best Seinfeld Episode ever, IMO. That and the one where Kramer has to apologize to the chimp.

This is going to be a tough one.. I've had some pretty good success in dropping my scores with 4 full bags in rotation, but I had planned on changing that this year anyways. Once the new and 3w come in, I will post my bag. Everything else is set up and ready to rock. The 3w is really unfortunate because I have loved it for 3 seasons now, but it has a rattle that isn't from adhesive, and it just doesn't seem to have the same "pop" to it anymore. RIP BBA, you will be missed.

Also, in presumption of what will surely be a great failure by many, I am going to start a sister thread for those of us that fail. I want to know why, what changed, and once you went over board, was it like a divorce party trip to vegas? I wonder if there is a way I can link it to this some how?

EDIT: I have like 3-4 more months till the season starts, so I will report back by that time. I am going to start the other thread now and I'll post the link here. This is not to steal the OP's thunder, and if it's an issue, please tell me and I will delete.

Ok, time to put my money (like there's any left after Christmas, or any actually at stake) where my mouth (fingers? since we are on keyboards or touchscreens) is.

Dan Drake's 2017 Bag is Set entry:

Ping G2 w/Aldila NV
TMAG RBZ Stage 2 w/8m3
Nickent 3DX Genex 17° & 20° w/Altus
Mizuno MP 11's w/Nippon SPB
Nike Toe Sweep 58° w/Nippon WV
SIK Jo

I wonder if I keep the bag the same for an entire year, how much would I improve, simply due to familiarity?

If I had to handicap which clubs are safest vs. most likely to go, I'd say it looks like this:

Putter - as safe as any one club can possibly be.  The only way I would make a switch would be if I was offered a FREE, high end putter fitting, complete with SamPutt Lab, Gears, NASA, a pysch eval, and a doctor to take a look at that bruise on my knee that won't go away.  
58° - Almost as safe as the putter
3-P - These may be in store for some tip weights, some new ferrules, and some new paintfill, but I hope they aren't going anywhere
Hybrids - My two favorite clubs, after the putter.  And yet these are the ones I most often pull from the bag.  Weird.  My misses are better with these two clubs than with long irons or fairway woods, and yet when the mood strikes, they get yanked.  Hopefully not this year.  
3w - This isn't a 3w, it's a 2nd driver.  And as long as I view it as such, it ain't goin' nowhere!
D - I'll admit it. This is the club that is most likely to cause me to fold.  But maybe, just maybe, I can do it.  This year.  Perhaps.

M1 430 w/Rogue
E8 ß 12° w/Rogue
3DX Genex 18.5° w/VS Proto
