I hope I have posted this in the right forum but I do have a question that is a variant of the best clubs for a beginner topic.
I took up golf again after a very long hiatus (20 years) and for the past three months I have taken some lessons, gone to the range and played a few rounds. I have been using borrowed and rented clubs as I need them. This is fine but it has occured to me that I am spending money on rentals that I could put to better use getting my own clubs and I am pretty sure that using different clubs almost everytime I play is not very good for developing my game.
I was thinkng of getting something basic used to start off with and this is still the plan. But while visit family on the other coast my brother in law mentioned that he had a set of Ping K15 irons that he was planning on trading in for something new and offered them too me for $100 less than he had been offered by the store. It's a good and kind offer but I am concerned about a couple of things.
First, these seem to be well regarded and expensive irons when bought new. That's great but I am concerned that they might be too advanced for my level of play and cause me to struggle compared to a set designed for beginners. Second, the irons were fitted for him and he is 6'3" compared to me at 5'10". I don't really understand the whole process of fitting and to what extent a set of clubs specifically fitted for one individual would cause problems for a beginner. If I was to keep these clubs for the long term, is it possible at a future date to get them fitted for me?
Thanks so much for all your help.
