I値l give this a go.

Driver- XR w/ Rogue Max I/0 s (next time out will be an Epic w/ Atmos Blue s)

3 wood - XR w/ Whiteboard

3 hybrid - 8!yr old TM Burner

Irons - Mizuno MP-4 w/ PX 5.5 shafts (3-P)

Wedges - Cobra King 52* (bent to 51) & 56

Scotty - Futura X5M

Callaway Chrome Soft

Jones Bag with Chambers Bay, Olympic Club, Bandon Dunes, Trails hardcovers

All clubs have +4 MCC grips Woods - grey, irons -red, wedges- orange.

Better than the average player, and jones bags are amazing! Sub 5 handicap (my best guess is 2)Great short game. Putting is your weakness (marginal). Obviously you like to travel and play.  Solid player not overly long or amazing at anything just can scramble and keep out of trouble. Nothing flashy or pretty, but I wouldn稚 want to bet against you.

About a 9 right now but struggling mightily with the driver, always played a fade and it turned into a pull. Irons and wedges keep me out of trouble with no big misses with them. Putting has become a strength, no more than 28 putts in last 4 months.

Funnily enough, I play my best when someone challenges me. Last tourney I shot the worst round in my flight and for the 2nd round the guy leading my flight was talking a ton of mess, 10 people bet him that I would beat him straight up the next day (he had almost a grand on it without even betting me) and I beat him by 6 strokes.

You're not joking! So what does this bag say about Farva? The 6 hcp on his sig is probably as high as he's been since his junior year in highschool. You know, back when spent his summers picking range balls at the local CC in the evenings after spending the mornings at the pool. Naturally gifted, who really wants to practice all the time? Besides, golf was for whimps, Farva played football and basketball, which cramped his golf style. Got serous after college, fell in love with Titleist. The putter is a tough one, it leans toward a smaller person, but I'm sticking with a big guy, like 6'2" and 215lbs. It is also interesting that he'd carry a 1-iron and no fairway wood. But really, between the best driver ever made, and a decent hybrid, the one iron is just for show, and the occasional short par 4. I love the older wedges. This leads me to believe that even though Farva is a great player, he doesn't like the urethane covered balls. Maybe a Wilson Duo? But probably a a Titleist NXT Tour, I mean, like Farva has ever even held a Wilson club?!? Oh he did, infact his first clubs were probably a handed down set of Wilson Staff Tour blades. The real question is: what is your non traveling bag? If you say it's a full bag of Bridgestones or Pings, I'm not going to be surprised, but it really doesn't help your game any, does it? If I'm way off, that's great, fun bag to guess at...

So I will give you 2 bags.  One that I play now, and one that I hope to play after Christmas and my birthday in January.  Will see if your opinion changes between the 2.

FWIW, everything is stock shafts.

Current:
TM R1 set at 10.5
917F2 16.5 (this just replaced a Callaway steelhead 3w (20+ years with original grip)
Callaway Steelhead III 5w (also original grip)
Mizuno MP-57 5-PW (4 got lost after a top golf outing)
Cleveland 588 51 (10+ years old)
Cleveland RTX-3 56/full bounce (raw finish)
Cleveland 588 60/low bounce (10+ years old)
Ping Wack-E putter with the grip getting fuzzy

With the holidays and $600 in shop credit from gifts/tournament winnings, here is want I hope to have in 6 months:

917D2 10.5
917F2 16.5 (already have)
917F2 TBD
818H1 TBD (these depend on a fitting to figure out how to fill in the 50 yard gap between the 3W and the 5I
MP-57 5 thru PW
RTX-3 51
RTX-3 56/full
RTX-3 60/low
Toulon Design Memphis (compliments of a friend with a lot of $$$ who buys extra for others when be buys for himself).
Titleist bag won from member guest 2 years ago

While this is a lot of stuff to get in a short amount of time, I have not spent any money on my set with the exception of the 3W and the 56 in 6 or 7 years.  One thing i did notice is that after getting the 917F2, my stance and alignment between the driver the 3W and the 5W got way off.  Visually they were way different and i did not have a lot of confidence standing over the ball if I hit any combo of the 3 over the course of a few holes.  Hard to hit a good one if the face is open or closed at address.

Haha this had me chuckling throughout! Thanks for the response. You are dang good at this!! Little Farva was basically just as described. Now not so little, 6'2" 225. Football, check. Basketball, check. Was probably best at baseball, but my summers were for the pool and the course by the time I got into high school. Ball of choice with this bag is absolutely NXT Tour. My first real set I played in high school was the same set my dad used when he was in high school, Wilson blades.  983k was first driver I ever bought myself and it was all love for titleist after that. All these clubs were bought in college with exception of the putter. You got me on the 1 iron! Mostly show, but I'm in Iowa and with the winds in the summer this thing is a niice fairway finder. The putter was my Grandpas. He passed away and it's a way to keep him with me when I play. He taught me how to play and play we did. The guy had 13 career hole in ones! Regular bag is mixed, consisting of M2 driver(2016) & M1 4wd, MP 64's, Cally MD2tg wedges. Thanks again, that was fun!
