Game improvement irons

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hello all,

 

First of all, golf is a whole lot harder than I imagined.  I am a 30+ handicap after 4 times of playing.  I am looking for some advice/suggestions in a set of irons.  I am currently swinging a set of Cleveland TA5's (graphite, stiff flex) these were given to me.  I have been told that I swing too "hard" for graphite....I don't know.  Just to make things easy, I am 33 years old.  I am not wanting to sink a bunch of money into a new set, however I wouldn't mind buying a 5-7 year old set either.  Also if one of you happens to mention Ping, I have no idea what the dot color is.  I looked it up and to my best recollection I would need purple.  My wrist bends at 32" and I am between 6'0 -6'1.  just throwing that out there for anyone who knows pings equipment and can tell me if i am reading the chart right.  Also, should i be swinging steel shafts?  Thanks, the newbie, Randy

Ping G-series, Calloway, Titleist AP1 would be high up on the list if I were you. If there is a place where you can demo them I'd suggest that. If you do go with Ping just have the place you're buying them from fit you to figure out what dot color you need.

Well, I am not sold on Ping, just stating the info for anyone that is.  I am considering the adams a3os or the 2006 Big Berthas....any suggestions anyone?

I'll watch this thread.  I'm using a borrowed set of clubs and want to get into a decent set without breaking the bank.  I'm looking at some of the complete sets that Adams Golf offers.  I'll be interested in your opinions.

Those should work fine.  You avoided the tendency to get "players irons" with the idea of growing into them.  In my opinion, this game is ridiculously hard so there's no sense in making it any harder than it needs to be when you're first starting out.

You can find used Callaway X-18s for about $300.  Check their pre-owned site.

Best bang for you buck right now are BRAND NEW Taylor Made HT irons!  They are around 300 dollars brand new and are very nice clubs.  I have had some for over a year and swear by them.  You can even get the 4 iron up in the air which is tough!
