  5. tngreg added a post in a topic New to golf...need help choosing clubs   

    I'm just now getting serious about my game and upgraded from some early 90's cobra irons to 09 Nike Slingshot HL iron set with hybrids.

    They are like night and day compared to my old irons. I love them and now i can start to concentrate on getting better. Got them half price since there 09 models. I'm just getting used to slowing down my swing and let these fine clubs do the work..I can increase my swing speed later when my ball striking improves.
    Good Luck!

    Character is doing the right thing when nobody's looking. There are too many people who think that the only thing that's right is to get by, and the only thing that's wrong is to get caught. ~J.C. Watts
    Stating that, I'm going with Jack for my vote. This game is about tradition, honor and integrity. All of these are flawed in Tiger's character. He can cry and apologize all he wants, but he will never be viewed the same by gentleman serious about this game and its traditions
