Going to a JumboMax L grip on my chipping, pitching, sand club. 58*
Cured some yips, keeps the hands quiet. Almost never use the club for a full swing. Works just like the large diameter putter grips.

Swapped out my old 910 D2 driver for a 915 D2 earlier this year. I got more consistency with my distance and disperison. I also decided to stay with one putter and putting style instead of consistently switching to whatever was the hotter flat stick (kombi-s w/ an SS 3.0 slim grip using a pencil style hold ). I’ve hit more greens in regulation in 2018 and I can blame my misses with the putter on misread greens or bad aim now

Believe it or not, my switch to Wilson Triton driver. Packed the head with cotton, weights set to draw. Not as long as other drivers maybe, but for me it is a true fairway finder ... and thatís what I needed. Scores can really go down when youíre not playing so many second shots from trouble.

Taking the JPX 900 out of the bag and throwing in the Titleist CB's.  Felt like hitting a ping pong ball with a 2 by 4 with the mizunos.  Still baffled by this as my experience with Mizuno has always been a responsive face and buttery feel, but they simply didn't do it for me.

Giving up my R510 TP and switching to an M4 with Tensei Orange 50S shaft. Finding more fairways and getting my average up from 221y to 248y means I hit more GIR.

Just picked up an M3 3w in the hope of getting a bit more reach into par 5s for a shorter approach. Letís see if that helps in 2019!

1997 Scotty Cameron Sonoma I bought at a garage sale for $1.00. Took me five sessions with all kinds of steel wool, abrasive pads, and eventually a set of brass dremel brushes that fit in my electric drill to clean all of the rust off this putter as it had sat in a Florida coastal garage (across the street from the intercoastal) with the headcover on for most of its life.

Really bought it just as an investment—not expecting to use it—as I have never really liked a single bend offset shaft. But this 35" putter is so balanced in my hands and the first putter I have ever found that I seem to putt well with on both lag, and short putts. Love it!

Added a g400 stretch 3 wood 13 degree set at 12.Really love my g25 3 wood but needed a 3 wood for more distance off the t.Really struggling with my driver theses days with consistency.
Keeping the ball in ball in play with little distance loss has help my game.

My answer  is exactly the same. Don't even hit a driver much anymore.
Have you guys thought of going old school with driver? I struggle with consistency with new drivers, but hit older drivers much better. I do lose a bit of distance at the top end to newer drivers, but my r7 super quad tp keeps it in the fairway more and my average distance is about the same cause I don't have the real bad misses. It is probably a different way of doing the same thing, but I find 3 woods not quite as reliable as driver for me, and I just don't feel right without driver in the bag.

M3 Driver with Tour AD DI 7X.  I am already down 3.1 shots in my handicap and should be able to push down to mid single digits if I actually warmed up before my rounds and did not start bogey/double/bogey to start my rounds like i have on my last 5 rounds.

but hey... i do get an extra 30 minutes of sleep thanks to skipping the range...

I went back to my Atmos 7X I was fit for at the kingdom in my M3 Driver.  It turns out the pros at taylormade carlsbad know how to fit me better than i know how to fit myself... who knew?

My best equipment change was switching drivers and shafts and realizing that I needed to go back to what I was playing before as it works best for me of everything I've tried.  I did switch heads though to get more forgiveness and so far it has been working.
