Driver

Nike VR-S

I recently went to a demo day at a local practice range and spent a few hours demoing drivers. I had played a Titleist 983K for about 2 years and decided it was time for an upgrade. After hitting the newer Titleist, Taylormade and Nike models I eventually found the driver that best fit my game. The new Nike VR-S with a 60g Fabuki S shaft. It has a large head and a very hot face. I have no problem hitting the ball 300 yards and it gives me the ability to change the head to accommodate for my ball flight. It is the first Nike club I have ever owned and so far I am extremely happy with it. The ability to hit the ball into the fairway has helped me to shoot some of my lowest rounds ever recently.

Fairway Wood

Great Big Bertha 7-Wood

This club is an older model and a hand-me-down from my dad. I really don’t hit it much unless I have a long shot from the fairway on a par 5. I am looking to upgrade to a newer 3-wood soon.

Hybrid

Adams A7 Idea 3-Iron

As far as I am concerned Adams makes the best hybrids in the game. I love hitting this club off the tee on shorter par 4s. I can hit it about 250 yards with a nice draw. I have hit some of the best shots of my life with this club and will definitely use Adams hybrids in the future.

Irons

Mizuno MP-58

Last year I got fitted for my irons. After a few weeks testing multiple iron brands I went with the Mizuno MP-58’s. They feature a forged dual muscle back which allows for the ball to strike cleanly and smoothly off the face. They are less forgiving than a cavity back iron and are recommended for a lower handicapper. I have played them for over a year now and love the feel and consistency I get from them.

Wedges

Titleist Vokey

As far as I am concerned Vokey wedges are the best in the game. Many players from high handicappers to the pros use these wedges for the feel and ball control out of both the fairways and rough. I just got these wedges a few month ago replacing my Mizuno R series wedges. I am glad I made the switch because they have helped me tremendously in lowering my handicap.

Putter

Ping Karsten

The Ping Karsten is a simple putter that I have been using for many years. I just upgraded to the newest version of this putter and have loved the smooth stroke I get from it. It is a straight forward putter with no gimmicks or odd shaping.

Grips

Currently I use standard golf pride grips on all of my irons and wedges.

Ball

Titleist ProV1

I use the Titleist ProV1 because of the soft feel I get from my irons and the control around the green. Many players will use the ProV1X for the added distance, but distance is not a concern of mine. I find that the best way for me to lower my score is approaching greens and chipping around greens. The ProV1’s give me the softest feel in these areas of my game.
