Just ordered a set of Grip Master "The Master" grips and putting in play one of the new Stitch AP edition three wood covers.

Really excited for my equipment this year! Heads, grips, shafts and accessories are going to be by far the best they have ever been!

Here's a pic of my wedge build coming together. Went with 50, 55, 60. Last name is being stamped in there. Chris (the owner of "The Club Nut") did a tremendous job, stamping looks awesome!

Stitch covers arrived! Grips coming Wednesday, + a bunch of other cool stuff coming in this week. Stay tuned for pictures! One other thing I also took a plunge Into ordering is a Ryobi Bench Grinder and a Trick Tools 2x36in. Belt grinder with a few different grit belts. This way I am able to start grinding down my wedges to exactly the sole grind I prefer, if you can't get stuff to be done how you like it, just do it yourself! ¯\_()_/¯.

No, I take a winter break from tournaments and just spend a tremendous amount of time on my game.

Update: Ordering a couple backup driver shafts as I love my current setup. Looking into a shaft puller for my golf workspace, probably going to order that next week. This stuff is expensive, especially because I have to pay for it and I don't have an income. But, at the end of the day, I know by building stuff exactly how I want it, I will play better.

Here is what it is looking like as far as products coming in, doesn't look like much this week but a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks!

New Club Nut Wedges = This week :D
Grip Master Grips = This week :D
Tyson Lamb Ball Markers = Next week :mellow:
Bench Grinder = Next week :mellow:
Belt Grinder Attachment + belts = Next week :mellow:
P790's = Mid December :(
New Bag = February :angry:

Other good things as well, taking a college visit to the University of Arizona January 13th. Hoping to possibly attend the PGA Show in 2018, if I can plan a college visit to a school in FL I am looking at during those dates. Anyway that's about all I've got as far as updates. A lot to look forward to for sure!

Had the 770's and on the longer clubs they got hard to hit. And didn't want a combo set because the long irons would feel/perform different than the short irons. So decided 790's all the way through would be the best choice.

Update: Wow! Spin on these isn't super low and they carry incredibly far. Spin is still high even with the lower lofts, which is great! Probably 5-10 yards further carry than my Apex Pro's. I really am liking the 790's.

Sure Stix shafts, that are frequency matched. (SureStix.com). Absolutely incredible shafts, if you can get them in your clubs, DO IT! I had originally played Nippon Modus 3 Tour 120's and my dispersion with a seven iron with the Nippon's was 100-150 ft. with the Sure Stix shafts my dispersion was 30 ft. when you think about how tight 30 ft. is, it's absolutely incredible. I was skeptical at first, but now that I have tested them. They are by far the best shafts on the planet and it's not even close.

Well, lots of stuff happening. First of all, wedges are solid and I do like them, but the grind on the 60 isn't happening for me. So I am looking into possibly getting an Edel hand ground 60 and possibly 54 then leaving the Club Nut 50 (now bent to 48).

The irons needed to be reamed to a .370 tip size (to fit the Sure Stix shafts) and given how hard the metal is on the 790, my club builders drill press wouldn't cut through the metal. Even though they are forged, which is odd. So they were sent off to another guy and hopefully they can ream them.

Not much else going on, got my AP covers but they are too nice to game. Asking for some Seamus Snow Trooper covers for Christmas and hopefully I get them, because they look dope and I would game the crap out of them.

Couple of updates:

#1 Still don't have my irons, club maker is taking a sh!t ton of time to build them, which is making me antsy.

#2 Grinder came in, so did shaft puller and it's been fun messing around and building some stuff.

#3 My coach thought it would be a good idea to look into an Edel DGR Grind, so I did. But with my experience of Edel in the past I wasn't a huge fan of the overall wedge results. So I decided I will put a DGR Grind on my wedges, myself. First attempt is on a Wilson FG Tour PMP 62, see pic below.

That's about it, if ya'll have any thoughts or questions, don't hesitate to drop a reply down below. Cheers!

Yes, they do. They sacrifice a lot in order to give me the opportunities I have. Plus, quality stuff (usually) = quality results, so they are well worth it!
