Driver - 5 years Irons - 2 years 3 wood - 1 month (love it so far) Wedges - 1 month (new for xmas, love them!) Putter - 2 years

I know thsese time frames are less than some mentioned on here but I am fairly young (22) and the times probably represent how long I have taken golf seriously for!

Driver - 20 months

3 wood - 4 months

Hybrid - 4 months

Irons - 30 months

Wedges - 8 months

Putter - 5 years

I now realise why the wife says "why are you getting more new clubs?". In my defence there have been significant changes to my swing (and associated drops in my handicap) and the new clubs are much better suited to my game now. However, the new Odyssey TP Prototype putter does look and feel lovely......

Driver - 16 months 3 wood - 16 months Hybrid - 16 months Irons - 16 months Wedges - 16 months Putter - 16 months.

Coincidentally, all Nike gear, no complaints. Tried some other stuff, but these particular clubs just felt right. I'm not getting millions to use them though sadly...!

Driver - 3 months 3 wood - 11 days 3H - 2 months 4i-AW - 3 months 60* wedge - 3 months putter - 3 months SW - 5 years

After 30 odd years playing I decided 2013 would be the year I got my handicap moving low! In the past I have always bought cheap and cheerful, this time I went for some decent kit after fittings to help. Handicap is plumetting!
