Been slowly rebuilding the bag over the last year, and finally have it where I feel really confident with them and don't want to change anything... for right now.

A little background, I played high school golf, wasn't really that good, but had just started getting into the game. Consistently shot in the mid to high 90's in my tournaments and enjoyed it a lot. I stopped playing in college, and since I've graduated last year I recently started playing a lot again. I try to play at least 9 every week, but with work and the way it rains out here sometimes it's hard. Some weeks it's no golf some weeks it's 36 holes.

I really struggle with hitting wedge shots fat, and the wet conditions where I'm at don't help. Also off the tee I have trouble with, primarily my aim.. My iron play is solid and that is where I am able to make up for the poor wedge and tee shots. My lowest 9 this season is a 42 and my lowest 18 is a 88. I feel like I'm really close to consistently shooting in the 80's.

Anyways, here's my bag! Enjoy. Bonus pic at the end.

Nice setup. Cool dog. Question: do you find the T-MBs easier to hit than the AP2? I’ve alway found it to be the opposite

You know I can't really say on which is easier to hit, but I can say that I chose the T-MB's because they gapped a little better on that end of my bag, and I get a touch more distance from them. I normally only hit the 3 and 4 iron off tee shots. 3 Iron on shorter par 4's or holes that have a big dog leg on them, then the 4 iron on longer par 3's. Sometime's I will hit the 4 iron off the fairway, but that's only if I hit a really poor tee shot, and am left with a significant lay up and don't feel comfortable enough going for the green with my hybrid.

Nice setup, dog is a wee cracker as they say over here!

How are you finding the sm6 wedges? Am sorely tempted to upgrade from SM5ís.

To be honest I'm not exactly sure how they differ from the SM5's or SM7's, but I really like them. I am confident with stopping shots on the green whether full swing, chipping, or pitching so long as I get the right contact depending on the shot. I do think my combination of bounce and grinds are right where I need them. The 58 out of sand is almost effortless.

How’s the G400 hybrid treating you?  I’m thinking of trying out the same hybrid in the 17* loft, I want to use it mainly from the fairway.  I struggle with the 3 wood from the deck and I want to make that a tee only club.  I’ve heard nothing but good things about the G400.

By the way you’ve got a nice set up but you’re dog clearly stole the show lol.  Dogs are the best.

That's exactly why I got it. I like it a lot, but I'm thinking about picking up a 19 degree to see if the extra loft gets me some more height and distance.
