Hi guys,

New to the forum so thought I'd add a whats in the bag post

I'm not a massive tinkerer and will generally keep a club in the bag if I like them

I've actually just come back from a few years away from the game as a result of work so despite their age the clubs are all in good condition.

The Driver is a 10.5 Titleist 910 D3 with a Motore Speeder VC 6.1 Stiff shaft set to A4 - I recently went to a fitting centre to see if I could improve my distance as it's a fairly old driver but I had pretty good launch numbers with this club and the fitting centre was struggling to improve on it. My current stats with this are 110 swing speed, 155 ball speed 12 / 14 launch and around 2050 spin rate.  The best driver I tried was the Ping G400 MAX, it didn't do much to the ball speed but bought the spin up a little bit making it a bit more forgiving.

It was a shame really as I was hoping for a few extra yards

3 wood is the 910F 15 degree with a Motore Speeder VC7.1 stiff shaft also set to A4 to hit the ball a bit higher during the winter and rescue wood is a 910H 19 degree with a stiff shaft - I am open to the idea of replacing this with a 5 wood as I do sometimes struggle a bit with rescues.

Irons are 710 CB's 4 - PW all standard loft & lies with Nippon 105T x stiff shafts - I prefer a lighter shaft in the irons so making them a bit stiffer helped me out

The wedges are due an upgrade, they're quite old and worn now - I'm hoping to get some SM7's in the new year in 52, 56 & 60 if the better half lets me!

My putter is one of the earlier Odyssey fang style putters, I prefer more traditional shapes really but this just makes the game that much easier!

Quality sticks!  Still have my 910D3, it’s a solid beast and got a lot of play this year - just not as forgiving as my D2.

It surprised me how little difference the newer drivers made for me, everyone was raving about the TS2!!  It goes to show it really is unique to every golfer, what works for me might not work for others!!

I remember those old Callaway Forged wedges!  I had the 54 and 58 in the rusty finish.  The heads seemed really small on that series of wedge too.

I'm sure I used to have the 56 & 60 as well but they've got lost in time after house moves etc.  It's definitely seems like a small head, this is the 52 at address

So the time has come for a bit of winter experimentation to prepare for next year & decide what I want the bag to look like

I'm still umming and ahh'ing between the rescue wood & a strong 3 iron so for now I'm changing between the 910 rescue and an old Nike Slingshot 3 iron.  It's an old club but it's so fun to play with, it's really forgiving with a strong ball flight and I just like having it in the bag.

Another thing I'm trying on this club is putting a thicker grip on it.  I've always used standard grips with 1 layer of tape since I was younger, I find it comfortable but the grip probably is too small for my hands.  As a result I've chucked a midsize golf pride mcc plus 4 grip on it.  It's a lot bigger than before but technically the correct size for me, it's taking a bit of getting used to but is starting to feel quite solid.

Probably going to put a new grip on a couple of my irons over the winter and see how they feel before committing to regripping the whole set
