Brand Spankin' New To Golf....Need Advice

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

I am a brand new golfer; I've played with some very cheap and very used clubs.  I'm looking for advice on a good set of clubs for a brand new golfer.  I don't want to break the bank, but yet I don't want a cheapo Walmart set that won't last.  I live two blocks from a course and I will be playing 2 to 3 times a week.  Any advice would be very much appreciated!

I bought my clubs seperately all on ebay and spent around 500 bucks total. Let me note that I did go into a shop and try out the clubs prior to purchase too.

You probably want to start with a club that is forgiving enough for you to enjoy the game.  Or if you are really going to put in the time and practice, step up to a club that is a players club as well as a game improvement club.

 

The burner 2.0 irons are very forgiving and are also a great club to game with.  The hit pretty long, even on the miss hits.  They can be had used at Golfsmith or Roger Dunn for 250 or less. (400 brand new).

 

I started playing June of 2011.  Before this i never owned a set of clubs.  I played once a week and went to the range 2-3 times a week.  I was playing the Burner 2.0 irons up until last week.  Now I play the Titleist AP2 710s and got fitted for them.  I put KBS tour shafts and cut them down 1/4 of an inch as well as adjusted the loft and lie.

 

I currently play of a 10.7 HC which i am very stoked on only playing since last June.
