Need Help! New to this forum ! Equipment / Instruction question!

5 posts in this topic

Hey everyone , Im new to this site so please bare with me . Okay ill give you a quick run down about myself. Im 13 , a leftie , i dont really know my handicap but since ive only been playing for 2 years and never really kept score until my last round of 18 which i shot a 99 but i did happen to get 12 on a hole due to a few mis swings etc. i hit my driver around 250-265 on a good day. I used to have Nike VRS irons but sold them a few days ago to fund my new irons i wanted to buy. my thinking was they were more of a big game improving iron and i wanted to take a step up into something a little more intermediate instead of a beginner iron. I usually order my clubs online from Global Golf. since i sold my VRS irons i Ordered Callaway's Razr X Irons. I just went to the range today and hit some balls with them. I Find i lost A LOT of distance with each club and the ball looked to have A LOT of spin on them. It was "Balooning" with my Old VRS irons i would hit my 5 Iron around 200 - 210 and Now my 5 iron is barley going 180. I dont know what to do! I dont know if it was just a bad day at the range but i feel like i made a horrible choice... any suggestions on what to do ? Any tips ? Any help would be Great! Thanks!

It can take time to get used to new irons. I myself had the same problem initially when I switched to my ZB's, but I love them now. It can take some time to get yourself mentally adjusted to new sticks. But how is your contact? Are you hitting your new irons clean and still losing yards on them? How does a well struck shot with the Callaways feel compared to the Nikes?

My contact from my view is good , ive had maybe 1 hit off the toe out of 10 hits so my contact i believe is good , the feel on these feel umm more umm well off the nikes they felt more trampoline like off the face and the callaway's seem more of a solid feel less "hot" off the face

Your nike irons may have had strong lofts and/or different shaft lengths than the callaways. But make sure you give yourself plenty of time to get acclimated to the new set before you're making an judgements.

I just switched to callaway razr x tour irons but I haven't noticed any loss of distance. Stay with them awhile before you make a judgement on them.  Only time will tell?  Good luck.

      Digestive enzymes especially those products * in the pancreas and small intestine break down our food into nutrients so that the body can absorb them * They are also produced in the salivary glands and stomach but we do not focus on these nucific bio x4  If we do not have enough digestive enzymes cannot break down our food which means that even if youre eating well were not absorbing all that good nutrition has to offer .   http://www.prohealthguides.com/nucific-bio-x4/
    • My Swing (PumaAttack)
      When you post a video showing your progress only to get ripped apart for other parts of your swing that are not a priority it makes you want to never post again.   I'm very disappointed in the behavior of a lot of the instructors on here.   lets review the timeline.  First I posted a video of me working on my shallowing swing.  I never stated it was perfect.  I get a response saying my backswing is wrong. I follow up asking why it matters if I hit other positions correctly. i get told "because" I follow up asking why it matters if my backswing is off if my downswing hits key checkpoints. I get told I am not hitting the spots.  I ask why not stating my angles are where my coach outlined them to be. I get shown my angles are wrong.  I counter stating they are still shallow and match that of pros.   I get told angles don't matter. (Even though I was wrong before because my angles were off.) This goes ignored and I get told my backswing is wrong. I detail my Evolvr coach doesn't have my backswing as a priority because he liked my positions at A4 and 5.  These get ignored.  I point out my friend has the same shallow to slightly steep and is told his swing is perfect and his Evolr coach says no changes are needed in his swing.  It's great as is.  I follow up why his shallow to steep is fine and mine isn't.  These comments get ignored.    Yet I am the one with the ego problem...
    • Your best golfing bargain
      I have one that I think maybe could top them all . . . I got a year membership with full golf privileges at a private club in exchange for an old sofa that I put on Craigslist and didn't even think would sell. I got an email - "Is the sofa still available - would you consider trade for golf membership" - totally out of the blue.    edit-  the guy had recently won it in a raffle of some sort.
