This last year, I accomplished something I've never done before - keeping the same equipment in the bag THE WHOLE YEAR! And as you'll see, I am brand biased. This winter I may do some swapping (New F8+'s possibly and wedges).
Driver - Cobra King F6+ (Blue) set at 10.5* with a standard stock stiff shaft
3 Wood - Cobra King F6 (Blue) set at 15*, also a stock stiff shaft
Hybrids - Cobra Bio Cell 19* & 22* (Blue) - I swap out these with the 3 & 4 iron pending playing conditions
Irons - Cobra King Pro Forged MB/CB 3-PW
Wedges - Cobra Tour Trusty 54* & 58*
Putter - Scotty Cameron X5 Dual Balance (IN LOVE with this thing!)
3 Wood - Callaway Rogue 15* w/ Project X EvenFlow 6.5 75g
Utility - Srixon U65 20* w/ Miyazaki Kaula 7 X-Flex

Since 1986, I had played with Ben Hogan PC 1 iron, 3 thru EW, and a Becu Hogan special sandwedge. I had bent and grinded myself an Old Titleist Sand Wedge. I had the club pro bend it so that i hit it the exact distance between the EW and the BeCu sandwedge. It was 52 or 53 degrees. I took the Titleist wedge and ground it on my Dads grinder. He has worked on guns forever and a day. Lol I had to buy him a new wheel. I ground the edge off of the one in his workshop. I called this my IN BETWEEN CLUB. little did I know they would be called a gap wedge many years later. I just needed to fill the spot in my bag. I had all of the irons bent 1 degree upright, and 1 degree strong. That meant the EW was 49 degrees.
My woods were Taylor Made Burner 7.5 degrees, with DGX100 shafts and it was 43.5 in long. I had a tour spoon for my 3 wood. It was 42 in long. They had the grey TaylorMade headcover if anyone remembers them. I had a Hogan Carry bag that was blue and white. And used a standard Ping Zing putter on that day. I switched back and forth between, the Zing and an 880s made by Wilson.
I have shot a bunch of 69s several 68s, less than ten 67s, but never again any lower. It is still one heck of a game. I havent played since May of 2016. I have had arthroscopic surgery on my left knee and on Dec 11th supposed to get my right knee replaced. Cant wait to get back to playing.

68 on my home course, rated 74.2, 144. I had shot 69 a whack of times over 35 years of golf but never lower
It was a crazy good round. Even had a bogey on a par 5 mixed in
I did hit it to a foot 3 holes in a row on 9 and 10 and 11.
I actually did a blow by blow thread on it here

My low gross score has been done twice, and a third time if I look at the number with respect to par. First time was on a par 73 course in 2003, the last two have been on a par 71 course, first in 2008, the last time in 2012. I don't remember what I would have been using in 2003, I was constantly rotating the bag back then (even switched out the bag at the turn one day).
So we'll go with the 2012 round
driver: SMT Encore 9°, AJ Tech ZTour90 X, 44.125"
3wood: Orlimar Trimetal Plus 14°, DG-SL X100
2-PW: Ram TG-898, Precision 6.5
GW: Scratch 8620 DD 53°, DGX100
LW: Maltby M Series 58°, DGS
Putter: Snake Eyes Viper Tour Sv1, 34"
Sadly, my round could have been anywhere from 3 to 6 shots better, possibly even better than that, which would have made it ridiculous compared to my level of ability (I was in the middle of dropping from 7 index to a 5 by the end of that season). I hit my irons absurdly well that day, doing almost exactly what I wanted. But I missed a half dozen putts inside 6 feet. After I holed out on 18, I started talking about "what could have been," and my friends all laughed at me. As they should have, LOL.
The irony of the round... I'd just spent 12 months playing Ping Eye2+. Been a blade player since 2001, was having trouble in the wind and found I could get 1000rpm less spin with the Pings on a 6 iron. Decided to commit to the Pings for a year. Wind play improved, but the rest of it was largely the same. After the year was up, I took out a set of blades on a lark, a friend offhandedly commented he thought I hit them better and should maybe play them, instead.
Put the Rams in the bag and tied my personal best. Go figure. Even better, this round was from the blue tees, the earlier personal best was from the white tees....
Short story made long.... LOL at me

Everything seemed to be "on" that day- especially my ball striking and short game. If I missed a shot, I was lucky to miss it in the right places were I was never in too much trouble. That round in particular was magic with the putter as I did not have a 3 putt the entire round (I putted everything out that day too). I remember having an abnormal amount of 1 putts that either saved par, bogey, or were for birdie. That definitely gave me confidence as the round went on and I was swinging "free" that day. The only thought I had was aim for a target and hit that target. Nothing fancy but it worked.
