What do you like/dislike about your current bag:
- I really like where my bag is at, carrying most of my bag from last year over.
Specific areas of desired feedback:
- I'm settled in on my molds, so this will be more of a "tracker" as they call it.
2019 goals:
- play in 5-6 (MA1 sanctioned) tourneys
- finish top 5 in at least one
- Improve my rating... how about 940.
- get out to league at least twice a month
- give back (volunteer, course clean up, etc)
- practice putting every day!
- ITB Video maybe?

Typical setup:
Each post will should be some variation of this. All discs will be within 2% of max weight.

- TRESPASS Main distance driver. I will BH and FH them. I like all the premium plastics. Very comfortable in the hand, gets great glide, and easy distance.
- ENFORCER Headwind, long hyzers, downhill distance. Again, good feel and distance potential.

- UNDERTAKER Workhorse control driver. Very straight and comfortable. I have a bunch from new to beat, OS to US, mainly Z and ESP. Very much a do-it-all mold.
- FELON Great OS fairway. Not a meathook, and very workable in different stages of wear. Mostly FH, maybe an occasional spike hyzer. Very comfortable mold.
- HEAT Not used much, but when I need a standstill, uphill shot, or big turnover, awkward stance FH, etc, it serves its purpose well.

- TRUTH Hands down my favorite mold. Favorites are flat small EMac silhouette (prEMacs with the 5/5/0/2 numbers). Very reliable, comfortable, straight. Perfect for the woods. Can't say enough.
- VERDICT Feels like a Truth, but glides a little less and fades more. Good for headwind mid shots, woods, FHs, power mid shots.

Putt and Approach
- ZONE From FH upshots, power putter shots off the tee, get-out-of-trouble, headwind putts, it's great to have.
- REKO This spot in the bag has been in flux. Had the Tomb here but thought it a tad more OS/mid-like than I was looking for. Hoping this will suit. Comfy and straight.
- JUDGE For some silly reason I switched to the warden for a minute last year. Didnít last long. Judge is far more comfy and great.

What I put into the C (that will likely start the season... when that starts remains to be seen...):
