Part 1 Of “Building The 2022 WITB”: I’m going to make some serious tweaks to the bag this winter…..

My current setup is pretty dialed in. I need to say that out loud as this write-up may sound like I’m not satisfied. The truth is I haven’t been this satisfied with my sticks in YEARS, and I’ve still yet to have a full bag fitting since joining Callaway. Been doing it more or less on instinct and curiosity. I wanted it this way, FYI.

I know enough about the fitting process to get myself or someone else pretty dialed, but the one thing I’m not a master at yet is……building/fitting the miss out of my bag.

Thats what I’m looking forward to doing this winter as next year I’m planning on playing in some Mid-Am qualifiers and going back to take a crack at the Sahalee Players Championship.

2022 is going to be a big Golf year for me and I’m committed to playing my best. No big swing changes, no massive overhauls just take what I have (physically and in the bag) and optimizing it. I was close last year and got my handicap down to a Scratch again but now I want the low scores to be sub 70 and the bad ones to be sub 76…no matter where I play. I played in the The Players Cup earlier this month and although there were parts of my game I was happy with, there were other sections that just flat out sucked.

BUT I did solidify the part of my bag that just flat out work and need to be cemented in the bag.

  1. I know CSX is the best ball for me. It was validated even further in tough windy conditions and around the greens it was just nasty.
  2. TCB 7-AW is now a concrete fixture. I didn’t show it exactly at The Players Cup BUT since putting them in the bag in the late summer, my short iron play got even better than with the APEX ’21. When I played the full set of Apex ’21, I was in Palm Desert (playing in a dome basically), and just hitting high darts was awesome. What I found once I got in tougher conditions was that I was limited to some nuance that I got with TCB. Lesson learned.
  3. The 4/5/6 iron section needs work and my hunch is a combo of Apex ’21 and TCB is the right recipe. I STRIPE the 4/5/6 in the Apex ’21 and the gear head part of my brain was dying to try the Tour Issue X21 UT but honestly, it’s not for me. I just don’t hit the quality of shots that I do with the Apex. Lesson learned.

This vid was taken this summer and as you can see, some tweaking has gone down LOL🤷🏻‍♂️


Here is the current WITB with the TBD’s in BOLD

Driver: Epic Speed 💎💎💎 LS (10.5@9.1, 12GB, 8GF) Shaft: Fujikura Ventus Blue 6X (Tipped 1, D4, 45.25)

3-wood: Epic Speed 💎💎💎 (15@14.5, 12GB, 8GF) Shaft:  Fujikura Ventus Red 7X (42.75, Tipped 1, D4) 

UW: Apex UW (19@17.5)
Shaft:  Fujikura Ventus Red 8TX (Tipped 1, 41.5, D4)

Irons: Apex ’21 (4-6) Apex TCB (7-PW) Shafts: KBS TOUR V 120X

*may also try Apex Pro ’21 (4-7) to see how that combos with TCB

*Looking into a full set of MCA MMT 125TX Soft stepped, the Tour V are great but there coming from X100 my misses got a bit wild although my good shots are incredible.

Lofts: (All Irons D3.5) 22, 26, 29, 33, 37, 41, 45
Lengths: 38.5, 38, 37.5, 37, 36.5, 36, 35.75

Wedges: (All wedges D4) Apex TCB AW (50) 
Jaws Forged RAW54/12, 60/10


Shafts: Dynamic Gold Tour Issue S400 

Lengths: 35.5, 35.25, 35

Putter: Toulon Prototype 35 Inches “Daytona S” 

Ball: CSX

What I’m looking to improve:

Bottom line is making the bad rounds better. My golf swing is junk but I’ve played a ton of really good golf with that swing and what Ive found is its “the big miss” which for me is a block right or a left no spin diver that costs me the most. I’m now experimenting with more loft (IE Spin and start line) as well as shafts to fix that.

My long to mid iron play is fixed, just need to keep those Apex 21’s in the bag.

I’m really excited about optimization across the board; I’m going to do a fitting with Gerritt Pon this winter and completely dial in the entire bag.

Consider this Part 1 of the WITB series for 2022. YES, we have new goodies coming, which will play a part, but the intention here remains the same. Year #1 with all Callaway gear was a success; I went from a 3 to a scratch. There is however still meat on the table, and I’m going to find it.

So what’s on the chopping block?

-Driver
-3-Wood
-MAYBE 19 UW, may go to a higher loft
-Putter
-Iron Shafts
-MAYBE LW

Part 2 will be the actual fitting with Gerritt Pon so stay tuned for that!!!

LFG

    I have really struggled over the last 3 driver releases to get the ball to turn over (my normal flight). I have been fighting the high right block. 50 years old, 109swing speed, in to out 4, up 7. launch 14 spin low low 2000’s w/ 10.5 driver closed one XB head. Ventus blue 6x straight in. Ideas or help with this miss much appreciated…

      Spin is too low mate even at the higher launch, you deliver it like I do which means you wither time it right and the ball will draw, a block right or a straight one. What head are you in currently? Im at 112-113 and when my stock spin numbers got to 2500 and the draw numbers got to 2100-2200 I was perfect.

The title says it all. I get pounded with questions on what the difference is, comparable model and who should play what. Yes, we...
