@Jil62: “As many folks know, I’m a long time TaylorMade player, so the bag is heavy on TM, but it’s no longer exclusively so. The biggest change I’ve made in 2021 is the ball. I grew up playing with wound balls, and as a result my short game was built around using spin, so I switched to the Tour B XS in June to bring back more consistency around the greens. That change also prompted a putter switch back to an old favorite due to the ball’s soft feel.

My iron setup is a little funky, but using the 790 and 770 for the 3 and 4 irons, respectively, allows me to hit my launch windows with those irons. I’ve been in a constant state of iron shaft testing for the past 3 years but have finally settled on double soft-stepped X100. This lowers the weight of the shaft down to around 125g and makes the tip play a little softer. I also play S400 in my PW to match the other wedges since I mostly play less than full shots with the PW.”
