Mondo, this was a big "transition" year for me.
Started by adding a Taylor Made Burner 3 wood in February on vacation in Palm Springs. Hit it so well that in April I got the Taylor Made Burner 5 wood to match when I was in Myrtle Beach. Big improvement in the fairway for me.
Then I replaced my Vokey wedges (52 and 58) and went with the Spin Milled versions. Happened to be in San Antonio and the Edwin Watts guy gave me a great deal!
Just this past August I was over in Grand Rapids for a meeting and wandered into a pro shop. They were discounting the Taylor Made hybrids, so I traded in my 3-4 Dual Rescue's for the '08 Burner hybrids (3-4).
In the end, there are 2 keys. I shouldn't travel, because I always succumb to buying some new golf gear that I "have to have." Second, beware the "rules change." I have to get new wedges again in a couple years since Vokey has the CC versions of conforming wedges, so I'll "have to have" those. Argh!
