BAG SET-UP

The Cut - - PLAY LIKE A PRO -

Some­thing else this process has made me re­con­sider is the set-up of my clubs.

I’ve al­ways been re­ally keen on equip­ment and con­fi­dent in my set-up but a re­cent fit­ting made me take a dif­fer­ent look at how I was scor­ing, and what I was ex­pect­ing from my game.

To cut a long story short, I’ve in­vested about $2000 im­port­ing new clubs , a set of Titleist irons which have hol­low heads and which are only avail­able in Amer­ica and Ja­pan. I am hit­ting them about a club longer with­out sac­ri­fic­ing tra­jec­tory or the abil­ity to hold greens.

I’m by no means say­ing you need to throw a load of cash at the sit­u­a­tion. The up­shot here is I’ve been able to drop a hy­brid and add an ex­tra wedge, mean­ing I now have to guess less on dis­tance con­trol when it comes to my scor­ing clubs. This is go­ing to help me hit more pitches close from 100m and in, mak­ing more birdies or get­ting up and down for par.
