It’s my turn to post my most recent WITB “What’s in the Bag” Episode. First a little info on my game. I’ve been playing since a child but never really cared about my score until around 10 years ago. Growing up my father would take me to the driving range and Pearl Country Club in Aiea Hawaii. My first set of clubs outside of a toddler or borrowed sticks were a set of Tommy Armor 845’s and the Biggest Big Bertha driver. My last 3 rounds were 81 – 87 – 92, hows that for steady! The foursome I last played with at Industry Hills golf club in L.A finished 35 coor’s light’s in a drinking game, It was 41 on the front nine and a complete disaster on the back. I’ve got video that I’m not willing to post.
So enough of that, let’s get on to my specs then bag. My swing speed averages around 100. I can crank it up to 108 and lose all control. When I swing smooth I slice the ball. What’s recently been working for me is a happy medium of being aggressive and composed. A good drive starts to the left and fades to center while a bad drive is a pull or a slice. I hit the ball medium high and my lowest score was 76 4 years ago. I don’t hit the ball very far, my averages are +/- 5-10 yds Driver = 240-250, #3 = 225, 19* UT = 205, 21* UT = 190, #5 = 175, #6 = 165, #7 150, #8 = 135, #9 = 120, PW = 115, 52* = 95, 58* = 80. With my irons a bad shot is fat, I have a naturally steep swing that produces nice divots and lots of spin. As many of you have seen in the video reviews my backswing with woods is rather flat, My buddies call me Helicopter sometimes, My irons are level with my right shoulder and my wedge shots have a backswing that’s way too long.
Driver: Ryoma V-Spec 9.5 w/ Muziik BangVoo Premium S-Flex
3 Wood: PRGR Egg Spoon 15* Stock M46 Shaft (Awaiting Crazy Evolution )
Utility: 19* & 21* 2011 TourStage X-UT w/NS950 Stiff
Irons: 5-PW Yururi KM-0107 Black Forged CB’s w/ Crazy CBI-80 Limited R-Flex
Wedges: Crazy Prototype’s 52/58* w/ Crazy 100 Wedge Shafts
Putter: Odyssey 2-Ball Center Shaft w/370g weight & Muziik Grip
There are a few adjustments I’m making soon. I plan to introduce a PRGR R35 chipping wedge and some sort of driving iron to replace the 5 iron. I’ve got a huge arsenal of clubs to pull from when something is being naughty and can never leave things alone. I also plan on testing the Yonex, Royal Collection, and Yamaha utility woods head to head against my X-UT’s. In the future I would also like to try these Crazy shaft’s in the Limited TourStage 905 CB’s.
