This is a no brainer. My Epic might be the biggest difference maker for me not only in 2017 but in the last 30 years.

SeeMore Si5 built to my specs. Putting is my biggest weakness and Iím always blaming the putter and trying something new. Going to stick with this one and try a little consistency for once.

Mizuno JPX ez with Fuji six. Bot early in year.
You know, this is a nice driver. It’s light, goes far and is forgiving. Gotz weights and adj. and all. Really nothing to dislike except that is makes a higher pitch tink sound and well, that is what it is. Prolly want a more stout feeling shaft. It’s a nice driver. Hate the decals.
TM sldr 430 tp with speeder 661.
Bot for fiddy bucks, why not? Love the distance of the TM but damn the head IS heavy, but JP doesn’t mind that so far. He will see. Likes the lower flight. The minimal, for TM, head markings is a nice change back for them. Love the look at address, reminds JP of older TM faves. When he nuts it, this thing is a beast. So far so good. Sounds real nice too. Of course, It will betray JP in the end, like all woods do. They are, in the spidery little hearts, wenches designed to crush your soul. Perhaps you know something about this? Hmmm.

Biggest difference today from a year ago is his iron set. Decided to use the Macgregor pcb tours. Hit them well, better than his Srixon, which he still likes. Just more accurate and they do feel better than the ztx. (He is still trying to convince himself?)
Got a used Yes! Victoria II Putter on the way. Cheap. Really been eyeballing an Odyssey O 7 or a ping sigma Tyne. Like the balance of the sigma, not sure about the insert. Like the O insert but it didn’t feel as balanced as the Tyne in his hands. Nothing is Easy, just like that Ian guy sang.
MacGregor PCB Tours...the leopard of irons.

I was hurt at work last fall and I was looking to replace my Burner 2.0 4 iron with a seven wood or hybrid. I checked ebay to no avail. Then I looked at callwaypreowned.com and they had the 4 hybrid that was exactly as my 3 hybrid, Adams a12 with the stiff graphite shaft. This club gives me more options off the tee and in any situation. I've shot better this year and I look forward to having the 4 hybrid instead of a 4 iron when I get new sticks.

Too easy, but need two.

Beginning of the year: Wishon Sterling irons, 4-GW. One swing on the ball, everything at an 8-iron length. No loss of distance, but much, much more accurate misses. Never going back to conventional irons. Ever.

End of the year: Titleist 917D3 driver. First time I've ever been professionally fitted for a driver. Got my rpms down to 2,500. Went up in swing weight to D6; smoother transitions and removed the pull-hook (my deadliest sin).

I picked up 2 1/2 dozen Srixon Z-Stars for $50 (5 x $10 2-sleeve special packs).  A great ball, and I shot my best scores of the year using those balls.

My G400 driver and MP18s are shaping up nicely, but I haven't played enough with them to really say they were the best purchases of 2017. I think the best would have to be a used Odyssey White Hot Pro #9 putter. Seems that heel-shafted putters suit me more than Anser-types (which I tug left). My putting this year has been much, much better, including a personal best of 29 putts in a round. Before, I was regularly hitting over 36 putts a round....

4w: TaylorMade V-steel, AD-GT 6X

Wedges: Callaway MD2 52* S and 58* (U, S, or T-Grind depending on how I feel)                    
Putter: Odyssey White Hot Pro #9 or Wilson TPA XVIII

Futura X5. Love the look of blade putters, but i just can't argue with how much more consistently i was hitting my intended line and the feel off the face of this thing.

The switch from my SLDR to a 2016 M2 in mint condition purchased from the Lefty Swap shop. Not many years between the production of these two clubs but the performance difference has me in shock. M2 - What a club!
