This is by far the strangest feeling I’ve had with equipment in a long time. I think my bag is actually set.  Every time I think of switching something my next thought is “but I got my current gamer so well”.

What do I do now?  I could add a 60° but just dumped it because I rarely use it.  

Ps-if interested this is my bag:

2016 M2, 8.5 w Rogue Silver 60

Adams Pro Mini 23° w/PXi 6.0
Ping S56 5-PW w/ Project X 6.0
Cally MD3 54° w/ Project X 6.0
Nike Method Mod Mod 60

The last couple months, heck pretty much the entire summer, my golf game has been driving me crazy. I mean playing so bad and so inconsistently that it was starting to make me question whether I ought to just hang the clubs up for a while or find some other way to get my exercise. I never play "highly skilled golf" but usually have a few rounds sprinkled in where I do a decent imitation of knowing what I'm doing.

Then out the blue, five of my last six rounds have been basically the best five rounds of the entire year. No idea what I'm doing differently with my swing or putting stroke. I just started playing better.

So I was just telling my wife last night I'm darned near superstitious about the equipment I'm using right now. I don't want to change any of my clubs, don't want to change balls, don't want to use a different golf bag or different color tees. I've got a couple worn out grips on my driver and 5w that have replacements waiting to be installed but I'm not even going to do that right now!

I do know a few things that might (superstition aside) contribute to coming out of my funk. I'm back to using the Titleist AVX that had been my full-time ball since it first hit the market, until I swapped around this spring and summer and tried the K-Sig, K-3, TP5, ProV1x and MTB Black each for several rounds. I also went back to the style and spec of putter that I used for most of my first 20 years playing golf. And the rest of the bag has been set for a couple months except for swapping out my 4-iron for a 4-hybrid that has been a miracle club for me in that slot.

So I'm all about sticking with what works. I may go back to playing like crap again next week or next month but I am going to try mightily to resist the urge to swap around this or that club, try new golf ball, whatever. We'll see how long my resolve lasts...

P.S. One other change to mention. A few weeks ago I got rid of my Game Golf and Arccos 360 and I quit typing every shot into my Strokes Gained app after every round. Not monitoring every single stroke of every round and poring over it looking for trends or insights has really freed me up to get into hit it, find it, hit it again mode. That may be the single biggest factor contributing to playing better.

It's a compulsive disorder.  The high you get from buying something is the same reaction as addicts get after a hit/drink etc.   Heck I've ordered putters when I forgot I had one in the mail.  The first time I broke 70 I changed putters the next round and irons a week later.

It really is an addictive behavior, or at least a very bad habit. My tendency to buy golf "stuff" has the classic pattern.

When I walk off the course after an awful round, my first urge is to think "I need some better clubs because I can't play with these".

If I walk off the course after a great round, I'm so excited I think "I deserve some better clubs now that I'm playing better".

And if I'm playing my usual game week after week, I get bored and think "It's about time to try some different clubs".

When the answer to every single question is "Buy Some Golf Clubs" that's a clear indicator of a problem.

Two weeks ago I shot my lifetime best score and promptly bought a new set of irons. There literally is nothing rational about the desire to have the newest technology available. I don’t try to fight it anymore . I just keep my prior set for awhile in case the new one doesn’t work. I take good care of my clubs and if I resell them I usually don’t lose much money.

It’s the dance we dance.
Did the same thing after shooting my best in years last weekend - could not resist a killer deal on some G700s - Buy, buy, buy!

The bag:

First season in along time that I don't want to change clubs as everything just seems to be working.

Callaway Rogue 10.5* Oban Devotion 6
Callaway XR16 Pro 16 Diamana D+ 80
Callaway Steelhead 7w DGX100 Lite
Callaway Steelhead 9w DGX100 Lite
TaylorMade P790 5-PW DGS300 105
Ping Glide 2.0 Stealth 50SS, 54SS, 60ES (50 bent to 49 & 60 to 59)
Odyssey V-line WHP

Only questionable slot is the 3w/4w as I'm looking for a Rogue 15 or 17 with a 80g + Fairway shaft but will probably just wait for one of the CPO sales later this fall/winter when they go 30%+ off.

Are those the new steelhead FWs?  If so how are they?  Ive almost bought one several times but have held off thus far.

Nope. Original Steelhead's that have been in the bag for over 15 years.

I tried the new Steelhead release but did not care for them.  Other than the XR16 Pro, the Rogue is the only other Fairway that has my interest.  Tried the Epic last year and again this year after the CPO deals but didn't care for them either.

I've been in that spot before too. It's a nice feeling to just focus on golf and not the wrenches in the bag. I had that and then I chased the dragon and was better for the short run then ended up going back to my previous setup. New irons meant more distance but lost accuracy which is already a problem for me. The only hiccup I see in my bag now is my hybrid. It's my old faithful and when I think of switching, I don't have a clue as to what I'd game. Maybe I look for an adams mini or something like that to keep with the size.

Now I'm playing fairly decent with my current setup but there are a few weak spots. Averaging 77 in my last 3 rounds (76, 78, 78) which for me, it's not bad especially when I look at my stats. 10/14 fairways 11/14 greens and 34 putts. Nothing stellar but nothing awful. Also, most of my GIRs haven't been close to the pin averaging around 25 feet. Tough to make putts from that far away more than once a round on the greens I play.

But now I've got a Ping G400 LST on its way so maybe I'll find a few more fairways! (sad reality is at my home course, I only hit driver 2 times on the front 9 and both are on par 5's. par 4's are either hybrid or 3.5 wood)

Maybe it is just time of year.  For some reason, I have always, for 50 years, played better golf in the Fall than in the Spring and Summer.  I have no idea why.  But I too just completed a few weeks of straight driving and good scoring, before the weather went horrible.

I generally have one or two really good games in the Spring, and then my game goes south.

I'm constantly looking for stuff to buy

But not clubs any more - I'll stick with what I have - it's working

That said, I swapped my Ping Pioneer cart bag for a Titleist Stadry carry and that was a bad move. I hate carrying (discovered after 9 holes) and the Stadry is too small. My new CP2 wrap grips (ok, kind of a club related purchase) make it hard to get them out the bag.

Fortunately, there is eBay, so just waiting on delivery of a Titleist tour bag I picked up from a pro shop for £44! That should have all the space I need. it had better fit on my trolley otherwise.....

If you need nothing then it's the perfect time to buy because you won't be making an emotional decision but will be making an irrational decision which is way better.

If you need nothing, but have this urge to spend, treat yourself to a tee time at a nice course :)

A few years ago one of my usual partners shot a 68 on a Saturday on a tough track that we only play once/year.

For some reason he showed up on Sunday with 12 different clubs in the bag and shot 85.  That started a downward spiral that saw him go through 8 sets of irons the rest of the year (several of which were sold before they actually arrived, just because after hitting the Buy It Now button he decided he didn't like the way the demos "waggled").

Traded his 905R in to Golf Galaxy for about $60 on Tuesday, bought it back for $130 on Friday :)!

And this is why people ho clubs, has nothing to do with golf, it is a solution to boredom, we are consumers to the bone.....especially in areas of main focus or passion......I think at times I liked trying clubs more than I actually liked the game....it was always the chase, and well that ended....so now I am gaming 3+ yr old clubs (happy) but find i still look for s*** to buy....I Say wait a week if you still want it get it...a week goes by and lose interest, lol

It's really got nothing to do with golf or game.....just the itch to buy s*** for whatever hobby your into....I will justify anything if I want it

I did same in motocross, surfing,etc

Because none of it made me better and there I was still buying after I knew this, lol

But yeah now I think about swing more than clubs...which is really what it should have been from start, lol

This is by far the strangest feeling Ive had with equipment in a long time. I think my bag is actually set.  Every time I think of switching something my next thought is but I got my current gamer so well.

What do I do now?  I could add a 60 but just dumped it because I rarely use it.  

Ps-if interested this is my bag:

2016 M2, 8.5 w Rogue Silver 60
TEE CB1 w Comp NT 85
Adams Pro Mini 23 w/PXi 6.0
Ping S56 5-PW w/ Project X 6.0

I've actually just invested in a course of lessons. Had the first two and seeing improvement already, just by fixing simple things like posture and how far I was stood from the ball.

I've been playing a tad over 2 years and I got my first hcap of 13 a few months ago. My game comes from what I've learned from watching youTube. My last few rounds have been 82s, 83s and one 78 so I know I've got some sort of game. I'm hoping these lessons can get me to single figures and one day, I'd love to hit Cat 1.

Looking at clubs is great of course but i think this is one area of spending i need to leave alone. I've told myself, if I can get to 5 hcap, I'll treat myself to a fitting at TourX and get the absolute best I can at that time. I'm nearly 51, so if i do make it, whatever i get will probably last me til I go to the Augusta in the sky lol

Today I ordered the last 2 clubs (i500 4i and G400 7W) required to complete what I reckon is the ideal set for me. I hope that concludes my ho'ing for the year.

I started 2018 expecting to make no equipment changes this year, and the only clubs I haven't replaced are my 54 degree wedge and putter.

Im in the same boat.  The only clubs I was thinking of replacing were my hybrids until my last round of the year when they were just awesome.  Now, Im focusing on golf attire.
