    Ben’s article of the same title from 2010 was very interesting and spawned 57 responses (last 7 are viewable but I can’t figure out how to reread the previous 50). This looks like a good place to restart the discussion. As for me, I’m trying to sort out my gap between 17* 4W and 30.5* 7I … Tell us what you are gaming, how you are minding the gaps, even the bag you are bagging. Stay tuned for exciting developments!

    I didn’t write any of those. I need to figure out how to tweak Article/Course reviews individually. Rob Rigg did.

    I have a 3w, 2i-6i in those areaas. Thanks for posting.

    I stand corrected Ben, and you are welcome. Nothing most golfers like talking about more than gear. I think readers here are unique–we all probably have a full (or multiple) sets, but by necessity or a desire for simplicity and minimalism, work at lightening the load. A most interesting journey.

    I’m a huge equipment geek, and have a bit of a sickness when it comes to buying and selling golf clubs, but I’ve settled down in that regard over the past year. Here’s my current bag setup:

    Driver – Callaway Epic SubZero, 9* (set to 8*), Aldila Rogue Silver 125 MSI 7x, 44.5″
    3w – Taylormade M2 Tour 15*, Graphite Design Tour AD-DJ 7x
    Driving iron – Srixon Z u45 18*, Nippon Modus3 120x
    3-PW – Scratch Golf SB-1, Nippon Modus3 120x
    Wedges – Scratch Golf FIT, 53* & 58*, DS Grind, Dynamic Gold S400
    Putter – Low Tide Flow, 34″
    Bag – Old Sun Mountain 4.5
    Push Cart – ClicGear 3.5

    I played with you at the Motor Gathering this past fall and you had a full set. I only tee it with folks that are using a complete set. One must be playing with a full deck of cards for me to take them seriously….

    Here is my current setup:

    Sun Mountain 2.5 bag
    Taylor Made SLDR Driver, 3 wood, 5 wood
    Mizuno JPX 850 Forged 4 Iron – GW (50*)
    Vokey SM5 wedges 54* and 60*
    Odyssey Black #8 (8802 style)

    That’s 14 clubs – I’d probably carry 20 if I could.

    I’ve got two bags — a Ping Hoofer with legs and the new Jones Nylon and Leather ultralight without. I highly recommend both.
    Mizuno JPX driver
    Callaway XR 3W
    Ping G25 5 wood
    TaylorMade M2 2H 17 degree
    Ping G 4H 22 degree
    Ping G irons, orange dot, 5-PW, GW
    Vokey SM5 SW
    Scotty Newport Select P
    No more than 5 golf balls
    Crown Royal bag with tees
    Green sharpie
    Flask (in cold weather)
    2 Koozies (in warm weather)

    Enjoy your winter, Laddies…

    Still below freezing and watchable bowl games, so no golf today. As the year ends, this is what’s in my Jones Original (inclement weather) or MacKenzie Ballistic Sunday Walker (clement weather):

    Ping G SF Tec Driver 12*
    Ping G SF Tec 3W 17*
    Ping G 5H 26*
    Ping G 7I 30.5*
    Ping G 9I 40*
    Ping Glide GW 52*
    Ping Scottsdale Tomcat P
    Wilson Duo Soft (6)
    Plastic snack bag with tees
    Black Sharpie
    Tito’s Vodka Bag for phone, wallet & keys

    The ongoing science experiment that is my game offers many opportunities in the coming year … Maybe replace 4W with 5W? GMax 5I 24* instead of 5H (even hacks can carry a “blended set”)? Try a Cleveland Huntington Beach #1 putter? Fairways and greens in the coming year!
