I am going to check out the Srizon Q-Star Tours this spring. As far as clubs, I'm going to stay with what's in the bag,it's easier on the wallet.

Well, last year I didn't buy any clubs somehow. Don't really need any this year either.

Unless I can find a good deal on Cobra Fly Z+ irons...and I could probably use new wedges this year finally...and I really have been meaning to pick up a push cart...

Callaway Apex CF16 5-GW with Nippon Pro 130 shafts.  Got to try them on the sim today - love the flights and feel of these shafts.  A little shorter carry, but much more consistency in distance and lateral dispersion.
Playing back-up bag:

Driver - Ping G LS Tec
3 wood - Ping G30
5 wood - Ping G30
4 hybrid - Ping G30
Irons - 4-PW Ping S55

Way too much ho'ing. Epic 7 wood, Odyssey #7 putter, BB OS 6 and 7 hybrids so far. Eyeing out a 5 hybrid or 5 wood depending on where I can live with a gap in my bag.

First purchase - a subscription to The Golfers Journal magazine; looks incredible online and though expensive to ship out to the UK it looks worth it.

Equipment - ordered a set of Srixon 765 irons (5 - PW, 565 4 iron) to finally replace my Cleveland TA3 Form Forged irons... and a Jones Players 001 bag for them to go in.

Just picked up a new set of Wilson C-200 irons (4-GW).  With the C-300 releasing soon I was able to get them at a great price (Under $300) and couldn't walk away.  I tested them at PGA Demo Day last year and liked them best out of everything I had tried.  Hopefully will get out to play them this week!!!

Definitely going to be the M3 driver and 3 wood. Want to go with adjustability this year in the woods. I've gamed the M2 since it's original in 2016. But with what shaft?

Wedges, I have some Callaway Mack Daddy Forged on the way, 50, 54, 58, with Black Onyx S400, Blue MCC+4 Grips. Ordered late last year but still not in. So this is my first purchase for 2018. Next will be either APEX-16 Pro or the New X-Forged 18' Irons.

Surprisingly, a Honma TW-Forged #3 driving iron (secondhand), then a Graphite Design Tour AD GT 6X for an old V-steel 4w I had.

Edit: I say surprisingly, because I was pretty happy with my Honma TW-U #3 utility, but the price on the newer model was too good to pass up. Better feel too.

Also, this came on Jan 2nd, though I ordered and paid for it online before the end of last year:

Loved that putter. I had that as a teenager and putted well. Not planning on buying anything this year but if I do, maybe an old bullseye putter.

Thinking of upgrading my hybrid and potentially 3w. I've seen a lot of positive feedback on the Cobra F7 from last year and would probably test both the F7 and F8 along with the offerings from TM, Callaway and Titleist.

Just bought a Ping Sigma G Tyne H putter to try out. I have been using a blade for years. Curious to see if I do better on short putts with the heavier mallet. I already do pretty well on long putts.
