Agreed with the above that you should play the junior tournaments that your schedule will allow to build up some competitive golf experience. Do you play on a high school team?   I took up golf seriously at 14 and couldn't break 100. By 18 I was headed to play college golf with a plus handicap. It takes a ton of dedication and, even if you don't make the "tour", you're going to acquire some seriously valuable skills along the way.   The best piece of advice I can give...
I played two rounds with Bronson La'Cassie when I was trying to make the University of Minnesota golf team. Bronson won a Web.com tour event this year and has his 2014 PGA tour card locked up.    http://www.pgatour.com/players/player.26956.bronson-la-cassie.html   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bronson_La'Cassie   If you see him on the leaderboard next year, root for him, awesome guy. 
If you're a 15 handicapper you might be better suited for something else IMO. If you're set on a 913, definitely get the larger, more forgiving D2.   I'm a 4 handicapper who went to a D2 earlier this year. I'm a high ball hitter so I have a 8.5 degree driver that is surefit down to 7.75 and the heavy mitsubishi shaft (black w/ the flowers in photos).   What are you trying to achieve by making the switch? What is your current ballflight shape? Do you want to...
I played 4 years of high school golf and then a year of golf in college.   My first swing in a golf meet in high school the ball moved exactly zero inches. Completely whiffed. I shot like 54 that day on a real easy course. By the time my senior year rolled around I had become one of the top players in the area. The progress I made and the life skills I learned along the way are two things that I am proud of.   Go try out, kid, you're in for a long and rewarding...
Hey all, first post. I feel pretty qualified to answer this question. I quit golf in 2005 after playing competitively thru my freshman year of college. I took it up again this year and have been completely re-hooked on the game.    Anyway, all of my clubs were roughly 8 years old including playing a Taylor Made R5 Dual 9.5* with a 65 gram aldila NVS shaft. I switched to a Titleist 913 D2 *8.5 with mitsubishi rayon 75 gram shaft.  I am a legitimate 30 yards longer...
