  • New Sticks, New Bag, New Game

    Hey All,

    Thought I’d share some pics of my new set up.
    ...”Show & Tell Sunday’s” I suppose.

    Some back ground info...(I apologize in advance for the long read, pls bare with me if you so choose)

    I’ve been gaming a set of Snake Eyes 675b’s I put together in my garage for the past 12 years along with a mix bag of wedges, Ping i20 driver, fw woods and an Odyssey white-hot putter. That set up served me pretty well and helped get me down to a personal best 5.4hdcp during my peak playing days several years ago.

    Unfortunately, as most here can relate (or maybe just a few lol) life gets in the way and I just haven’t been able to get out as much as I used to. I’m still managing to keep my single digit hdcp at a decent 9ish but all things considered, I really can’t complain. So for the past few years, I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a FULL overhaul but could never quite get around to it or kept giving myself excuses not to.

    ...Then tragedy struck with the loss of my son, River Jeremiah (RJ) last May 16, 2018 who was stillborn.

    Needless to say, it was a game changer for both my wife and I who were absolutely devastated and shattered. Now almost 18months later, we are both still trying our best to find some semblance of peace and “move forward” with our lives. It’s been a life altering process to say the least but we’re getting through it -together.

    So circling back to my new set of sticks...

    -It was clearly time.

    Now it didn’t happen overnight (mostly due to budget, of course) but over the past several months, I’ve built my new set up to where I want it to be. There are still a few more tweaks here and there that I want to do but for the most part, I’m happy with them.

    Not everything is the latest and greatest but it’s what works for me and the budget I had so it’s all good. I did get fitted for my driver last year and absolutely lucked out that I was able to find the matching set for all 3 shafts (3wd and Hybrid) at an unlawfully cheap price!

    In any case...Here’s my new line up:

    PING G Series9*
    w/ Accra Fx260 M4 Stiff

    3 Wood:
    PING G Series14.5*
    w/ Accra Fx200F M4 Stiff

    3 Hybrid:
    PING G Series19*
    w/ Accra Fx200H M4 Stiff

    Irons 4 - PW:
    w/ Project X 6.0 Stiff

    SCRATCH DD Grind
    56* (-1* Flat / +1* Loft)
    60* (-1* Flat)
    w/ KBS Tour Stiff

    LAMKIN Crossline Midsize

    SCOTTY CAMERON M1 Mallet Fastback
    (2016, 34” Standard all)

    Putter Grip:
    WINN WinnproX 1.18

    Taylormade TP5x Tour

    Staff / Cart Bag
    JDM NIKE Tour Bag
    w/ custom embroidery

    Stand Bag
    Titleist Ultra-light 3.0

    Personally, my two favorite upgrades have been the Maltby MMB-17 DBM’s (which I completely blacked-out for super stealth mode) and the Accra Fx260 M4 driver shaft that I got fitted for. Couldn’t be happier with them!

    Anyways, if you got thru all of that, I thank you for your patience!. lol

    I’ll end off by asking others to share their new weapons of choice if they’ve done a similar overhaul.

    Swing Ez everyone!
