WITB 2022 - What's in the bag for 2022?

  • 03-01-2022 4:52pm
    Registered Users Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭ coillcam

    See these types of posts and threads elsewhere, so why not here?

    Here's mine:

    Driver: TSi 9.0 Stock settings, HZRDUS Black RDX stiff 6.0.

    3 Wood: Cobra Speedzone, Tensai blue av 65 stiff.

    4 Hybrid: Mizuno CLK @ 20 deg. Speeder stiff shaft.

    4 Iron: Cobra Utility with stock setting, Catalyst 80g stiff.

    5-PW Irons: Mizuno PX 921 Forged, Nippon ns pro 950gh stiff.

    Gap Wedge: Callaway JAWS MD5 50/12W, True Temper Gold.

    Sand Wedge: Callaway JAWS Full Toe 54/12, True Temper Spinner.

    Lob Wedge: Callaway JAWS Full Toe 54/10, True Temper Spinner.

    Putter: Odyssey ProType Black 2-ball 33".

    Balls: Seed Pro1 Yellow. Also, I use distance balls from Decathlon and Srixon in casual rounds.

    Two of my favourite clubs are the putter and hybrid which I picked up 2nd hand through adverts for small money (4i also). The rest were acquired through the year and I won't be in a hurry to make any changes as I'm broke now.

    Thoughts on the irons? Mizuno irons always look unreal. Getting fitted in a few weeks toss up between them and the srixon zx7s.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭ coillcam

    Huge fan here. I had a set of 919 forged which I bought on adverts. I always said I'd get fitted if my HC went down below 15 WHS and it finally did. I tested all the heads possible and it actually came down to the zx7s and 921 forged. I was just more consistent on the Mizunos. Didn't think I'd end up with them before I started the process tbh. I was thinking I'd end with something stronger lofted. The hot metal pro and Callaway apex irons for example were rocket launchers but there was the odd jumper that went 10 yards further just didn't suit me.

    The other thing to come out of the fitting process was that my old shafts were too low flighted for me. The new ones have a much higher flight. Much more noticeable on 5-7i. They're a bit lighter and I just find it easier to be consistent with them. Go in with an open mind, you could easily find that P770s or even Cobra irons end up more suited for you. It's actually a very enjoyable process.

    Can I ask where you got fitted? I got a fitting previously but it was all Mizuno/Cobra with them. I like the look of Taylormade P790s

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭ coillcam

    No problem, it was Mullingar Golf Academy. James Quinlivan is the guy who fitted for me (he's the owner and also the pro in Mullingar GC).

    This will change quite a bit in the next few months, as i'm getting myself a new putter this month, and new irons and 5W/rescue in March/April, but currently its as below.

    • Driver - Sim Max
    • Woods - Sim Max 3W
    • Irons - 4I-PW TaylorMade Aero Burner
    • Wedges - Vokey SM7's (48, 54, 58)
    • Putter - Ping Piper H

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,326 ✭✭✭ Ivefoundgod

    Expecting a bit of change this year as I'm going to get fitted for irons and possibly upgrade some of the rest of the bag.

    Driver Sim - Ventus Blue Stiff

    3W - Mavrik Sub Zero - Even Flow Stiff

    Irons - 4-PW - TM Speedbladez Reg

    Wedges - 50, 54, 58 SM8s

    Putter - Toulon Design Las Vegas

    Only got back into golf last year and joined a club, handicap at 10.3 and think the irons are holding me back from my goal this year to get to single digits. Never been fitted before for anything so should be interesting. Not sure where to go though, Mount Juliet seems like a good option as nearby to me but they don't do Titleist or Mizuno irons which are what I have my eye on.

    Driver tm sim diamana (blueboard) xstiff 

    3w tm m2 xstiff 

    3hybrid cobra king tec xstiff

    tm spider putter

    That's 15 clubs, the hybrid is new and means I've to take out one of either the 3w, hybrid, 2i or 4i before I start the round. I'm still trying to figure out if I like having a hybrid.

  • Registered Users Posts: 4,173 ✭✭✭ blue note

    The guy I went to in Tramore does Mizuno and I was very impressed with him. He doesn't do all the brands, but does them, Srixon, Wilson and some of the less common brands like Muira, Orka, Gimar.

    My bag for the year

    Cobra Speedzone - 9 degree, stiff shaft

    Ping G10 3 & 5 woods, reg shafts

    Srixon 4 utility - some 80g regular graphite shaft

    Srixon zx7 5-PW - some 90g regular graphite shaft

    Taylor Made R11 AW, SW

    Callaway Jaws LW

    Taylor Made Rossa Daytona putter (or something like that, could me monte carlo).

    I'll probably try to swap out the two Taylor made wedges - they are from my old set.

  • Registered Users Posts: 2,326 ✭✭✭ Ivefoundgod

    Srixons are the others I like the look of. I'd just be a bit worried if I didn't like the feel of them would my options be limited by going there? Foregolf gets great recommendations but its a long spin for me here in Carlow. Carton house seems a good middle ground but again I'd probably be looking at a half day off work if not longer unless I can get a weekend spot. Foregolf seems completely booked solid.

    All seems to be working okay although I don't love the Ping clubs we have a working relationship, keeping it together for the good of the child (handicap). I plan to get new wedges this year and am always playing around with the putter. 22 could finally be the year of the Scotty

    From looking around at peoples bags lately - my equipment is a disgrace - way too old and to be honest actually worn out. (all my gear a good 6/7 years old)

    I need a full new set up - but - I have massive expenses this year - So it could be another year looking a bit rough, I need to zip up the head cover to hide my gear to be honest.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,301 ✭✭✭ coillcam

    Huge value to be had in the next couple of months on the last couple of years gear. Either discounted new or used. As soon as people start picking up the new releases, there will be plenty of value to be had.

    If anyone is looking to buy a new club and dont want to spend huge money, i got my M4 3 wood and Mizuno 3i off golf bidder. There second hand clubs but they rate the club head, shaft and grip out of 10. If you get 7 or over, I think its worth getting, even if you have to throw on a new grip yourself. I couldnt complain with my clubs that came. It worth having a look

    Driver : Ping G30

    Hybrids: Ping G Series 18 and 22

    Irons: Taylormade Burner OS (11 years old and needs replacing)

    Wedges: Vokey SM7 50 F grind (hate this clud), Vokey Sm6 54 S Grind, Texan wedge 60 (for bunkers, actually cant use it not in bunker)

    Putter: Oddysey 2 ball with alignment lines

    Nearly everything except hybrids and putter could be replaced this year. Only thing stopping me I just paid 127k deposit on a gaff. Slight optimism on mortgage size

    TaylorMade rbz 5 wood, stiff shaft

    Cobra fly z hybrid set at 21 degree, stiff shaft

    Cleveland 588 wedges in 52 & 58

    Odyssey 2 Ball putter

    Currently using Seed Balls

    Nearly everything in bag is up for replacement. Driver and putter am happy with. Everything else is fine but I haven't bought clubs with years bar the driver second hand last year so would like to upgrade a bit

    On irons maybe something more strong lofted but still appealing to look down at , more what's called " players distance irons" category. Old irons were foregolf built

    Better gapping with wedges needed too I think, feels like big gap between pw going about 125 yards and 52 around 100 yards

    Used Seed balls last year but price isn't looking as good this year so might try something else

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,064 ✭✭✭ MarcusP12

    I had a similar experience very recently.....was fitted to the JPX 921 forged...went in interested in the TM P790s but found them too strong. Didn't try too many to be honest as found the forged very consistent and they just felt right.....what can out for me from the fitting is an issue with a closed face at impact (fitter reckons it was partly a set up issue) and whatever way the JPX 921 forged lined up for me, i seemed to set up better with it and my misses weren't as bad....

    Driver: Ping G400 - Aldila RIP 55g Stiff shaft

    Fairway: Taylormade Rocketballz 3HL - 61g Miyazaki Stiff Shaft (in the bag the longest)

    Hybrid: Cobra King F7 3-4 Hybrid set to 20.5° - 75g Stock Stiff shaft 

    3 iron: Mizuno MP-18 MMC FliHi 3 iron KBS C-Taper lite stiff shaft

    Irons: Mizuno JPX-921 Pro 4 - PW Project X 5.5 shafts

    Wedges: 50° & 54° Taylormade MG 3 Black Steel, 58° Cleveland RTX4

    Putter: Odyssey Stokelab 7s 33"

    TP5 x ball.

    I swap between the hybrid and 3 iron but mainly the hybrid is in the bag.

    The 7s has been my "go-to" putter for a few years but I have a few & change it out quite a bit, for casual rounds.

    The driver is most likely next to get changed, really interested in the new Callaway Rogue ST. I hit one today indoors and I'll be bringing the demo out on the course this weekend. I don't like the stretched look of some drivers behind the ball and it has an impact on how I swing the club (ridiculous, I know!) but I haven't tested anything that beats the G400 performance and forgiveness yet.

  • Registered Users Posts: 1,064 ✭✭✭ MarcusP12

    Trying this bag set up for the "new season":

    TM Sim Max 9 degree driver, stiff shaft

    TM Sim Max 3w 15 degree, stiff shaft

    Cobra f9 7w reg shaft

    TM M4 5h stiff shaft

    Mizuno JPX 921 Forged 6-PW

    Mizuno T22 50, Vokey SM7 54, Vokey SM8 58, 62

    TM Spider X (or Evnroll ER5 TBC)

    Gonna give that a go for a few rounds anyway. Decided to see how an extra wedge goes as find i don't use much on the long end of the bag and most approaches are from 7/8i up and i stuggle with non-full shots. Options to change to include 3w to a cobra F9 5w, maybe dropping the 7w for a cobra 4 utility, 5h for set 5i or drop one of the wedges for a long club.....did a review of my stats and figure my proposed arrangement might make better use of my 14 clubs....

  • Registered Users Posts: 660 ✭✭✭ AyeGer

    The reg 7 wood seems an odd fit in that set up Marcus, does it work well for you.

  • Advertisement
  • Registered Users Posts: 1,064 ✭✭✭ MarcusP12

    Ha, yeah I knew that would be picked up on alright! I previously carried a 4h but was struggling a bit with it and read a few things about how 7w was becoming popular due to height and distance combo so came across this cheap on adverts. Been hitting it very well, getting 220-230 odd out of it…it’s very easy to hit….not enough gap to 5w so decided to see how 3w goes….the reg shaft could be an issue if I play more and get my swing speed up…currently around 95 according to my LM so probably already too high for a reg shaft…..will be keeping an eye on it….
