Happy Fall, yall! It's that time of year: football season and fair weather.

I'm newer around here and wanted to share my first WITB. A little history on me. I played Mizuno MP-14s that I gamed in high school and USGA junior golf. After college, life happened beginning with a career and a young family. My game suffered from it, and my scoring average rose from the mid 70s to the mid 80s so two years ago I had the fortune of picking up a set of Titleist AP2s from a buddy. My consistency improved over the past one and a half seasons with those clubs but this year I have ramped up my play time and realized that I really missed the feel and weighting of my old Mizunos. I got a lot of great WRX feedback and settled on a wonderful compromise: a combo set of Mizuno MP-4s and MP-64s. Not pictured below is a Mizuno MP-H5 2 iron I picked up that's on its way as I write this.

Over the summer too I've put together a wonderful, new-to-me amalgamation of clubs that I've picked up from BST/eBay. A few rounds in and it's clear that I've got a set that has shown real consistency gains and more importantly, I've re-ignited my love for the game. Over this summer I've gotten my scoring average back down into the mid/upper 70s. Currently building my hcp index which is trending toward the mid single digits.

I hope you enjoy my "new" WITB. A very big thank you to the WRX community and the WRXers here that have let me purchase some of their clubs. Hit em well this fall!

Thanks, the i25s are just well made, simple designs.

Yes, I'm thinking of taking out the 3. I've found that I top out at 4 iron for a long par 3 at my home course and my approaches to hit par 5s in two are around the 250 range which sets up well for my 3 wood. The 2 iron is going to be my preferred choice off the tee for par 4s that are around 400; many of them require some shaping either left:right or right:left due to slight doglegs or how the fairway slopes severely one way or the other.

Be well. Do good. Love each other.
