Tour player equipment replacement

How often do tour players replace their clubs, gloves, and shoes. I know they don't change club models but do they replace there wedges or irons if they wear them out.

I'm sure it depends on the player.  It looks like they always have new shoes and gloves too.

Hi William,  I spoke to our Tour Rep, Chris and he said that they change out their irons about once a year and our Wedge Tour Rep, Aaron, said

We are changing out wedges a lot. Players using 46-56 will change every 4-6 months, 58-64 will be changed about every 4-6 weeks. Players are very different  - some keep them longer if they find a good wedge that is working for them.

That's interesting about the 58-64 wedges.  Who on the PGA besides Lefty uses a 64?

Bubba Watson does I know for sure.

phil hasn't been using his recently. Am sure it will reappear for the masters.

Other 64 degree wedgers are Morgan Hoffman, bubba,  rose, kuchar (63). Not sure on any others, maybe The titleist guys could chime in with some more?

JB because of his distance.  I know the three that have been mentioned, but I'm sure a lot more do.

Does anyone know what happens to the old clubs?  Do the players keep them?  Turn them into Titleist for R&D?  Donate them to charities such as The First Tee?

 Would make good prize giveaway here on TT! Autographed tour equipment, they could even sign some ProV's. I'd take some Zach Johnson and Jason Dufner stuff for the idea ;)
