Just what the title says. Are you looking to make swing changes, fitness changes, equipment changes, or any other changes, please comment.

I will start,  I am changing my irons from Mizuno MP 62's to Ping I20 irons. I had a lot of success with the Ping I5 irons and wanted to give the i20's a chance. Will keep the MP 62's just in case though.....

I've already completed the changes to my bag for 2013.  I always upgrade in the fall for the next season because you can get some pretty good deals.  It was a complete overhaul of every club.  Early results with this setup makes me very excited for next season because i'm playing some great golf right now considering the weather and conditions.

Ping Anser driver 10.5* w/TFC stiif flex (I have a regualr flex ordered to have as a backup\option)
Ping G20 4\7 wood w/TFC regular flex
Ping G20 20* hybrid w/TFC regular flex
Ping G20 irons w/CFS steel regualr flex
Odyssey White Ice #1 putter
Ping Hoofer stand bag

No changes  are planned in terms of fitness.  No swing changes planned either although I typically change my swing two or three times a round. :)  I'm hoping to fit in more practice time, but that will depend on whether life gets in the way as it typically does.  One thing I hope will change is my temper, but that will depend on how well my new clubs work.

I would like to get in better physical shape... but in all honesty, it probably won't happen.  :D

I started lifting weights this year and stuck with it on a pretty strict routine for 6 months.  Then my wife and I moved.  I no longer have my work out partner to keep me motivated, and the only gym close to my house is a big fitness club that is nearly $80/month.  I've never been one who is much for jogging/running... if I could drop 15lbs I would be happy.  But man... I just don't like exercising.  :)

I'm happy with my equipment.  My goal is to just continue practicing and eliminate those ugly 80's.

Well I just changed to 712 ap2's with project X PXI 5.5.. picking them up tomorrow. I am going to tinker with drivers of course, but I think the rest is set.

I have yet to find a truly low spinning driver combo, honestly I think it may be my swing, but I grow cray good numbers in the simulator with the Anser, so I may give that a go

Sending  ping i20's to adjust to blue dot or maybe sell off and pick up g25. Wedges maybe. Grips are a must. Maybe a driver fitting. That said, demo days could lead to more.

I borrowed a set of blades to try over the winter. Already playing all right with them, with a few rounds in the 70's, and a CTP in a tournament. Really enjoying them so far. Haven't locked down my distances, yet.

Bought some Sensicore to stuff down the shafts next time I regrip.  Stuff really works in keeping down vibrations.  All you need is a dowel marked at 7.5 inches and push the top of the Sensicore down to that level.  I get it at Golfsmith.  

On the game, I need to get my short game back under control.  It has gotten a little loose in terms of distance control.  Just need to start hitting my spots again and stop flying the ball too far.  

Equipment-wise, I tend to stick to whatever I have that's working.  My MP-69s are getting the job done, just adding previously stated Sensicore, and if they fail I have some custom built KZG ZO blades to fall back on but these aren't quite as long as the 69s.  

I guess technique-wise I will spend most of my time on my setup like I usually do in winter.  Getting the ball in the right position for driver through wedges.

My bag is fairly well set for 2013, mainly due to adding G-20 irons last spring, and a new SC putter this summer.  About the only club I might upgrade would be my driver but I am fairly happy with my G-15,,but a G-25 or even Answer driver could be in my future, but not until I see a price drop, and that might not be in 2013.

I went from ping eye2 irons to taylormade burner 2.0 irons. Looking at putters. Also looking at the spin doctor wedges just to add a little more fun to the game. Built this setup for practice over the winter. Hopefully I can come out strong as soon as the weather permits in the spring.

I think I'm good after just one purchase tomorrow. An 85g shaft to my 3-wood to go better togetter with the 5-wood .

I just got myself a new set of irons mid-summer and sold my old MP-60s, S-300 after cracked the pack for my custom fit set of 69s, X-100.

Driver is old, but still working brilliantly, I think, I could not be better equiped on the big gun branch.

On the other end there are two almost never used Cleveland 588s in 58 and 4 degrees in my garage, which I'll take on, when practice camp is over and there is need for spin.

I'm going to try no new changes.  Every year I seem to be complaining that it's taking too long to adjust to my new clubs or my new swing thoughts or things like that.  I'm going to work on perfecting what I've got and see where that takes me.
