I just got back into golf after many years off, and really looking forward to practicing instead of doing the weekly round of casual golf.
In a good day, I can shoot a 96, but that can easily hit the 105 mark if I'm playing poorly. My iron swing speed is appx 96, while driver is around 107 I believe.
Without getting fully fitted, I went with the Burner 2.0 irons. The 'basic' fit consisted of upright lie, and determining if I should go with regular steel, versus stiff. In the end, I went with the stiff. For the most part, I am happy with the irons. They feel great, and confident when hitting them. Practice will help as I move forward.
On the other hand, I went into a Dicks and only tested 1 driver, the TM Burner Superfast. Without even really getting fitted, I went with that driver in a 9.5*/stock stiff shaft. I am still hitting the ball fairly high, and when I connect, it feels great. On the other hand, I feel my slice (ball spin) is much worse with this driver. Also hitting this club fairly high for a 9.5*. Forgiving, yes...but I slice much worse now than I ever did.
I keep reading the forum and everyone says go 10.5*, or higher. I just feel if I went with an even higher degree, my ball would be reaching the clouds. All in all, someone wants to buy my driver for $100, which I feel is a decent price.
What are your thoughts on selling this club, and getting fully fitted for a new driver? I am not quite sure if the loft, shaft, and lightness of the club is affecting my game greatly, or if I should just stick with it another year.
