just got some new irons.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

i just got some new irons. i got a beginner set, since my clubs i use currently are WAY too short. they are the Dunlop brand, and i know thats pretty cheap, but i wasnt willing to speend 300-700 dollars on a new iron set. these ones are basically brand new. and they are my size. i bought them on ebay. they look pretty cool.

 

 

 

i should be getting them next friday. the clubs i currently use are worn out, have been used to death. they had a lot of scuffs and sky marks and dings.

Nothing wrong with starting out smart, by that I mean not overspending.

you have to be careful when buying on eBay as well, lots of counterfeit club on eBay. look for a power seller when you purchase. as a starter set any clubs will do until your game improves.

I always tell people that are first starting out, to just get equipment that feels comfortable in your hand.  The most important thing to do is to learn the proper technique on how to swing the club.  If you are not one who wants to invest in lessons, at the very least consider a book, Hogan's Five Fundamentals is a great example.

 

Over time as you start to become more consistent and you will learn what you like and don't like about golf clubs.  At that point it is wise to get fitted and invest in clubs that are fitted to your game.

I actually did invest in some lessons just a month ago. i needed lessons because i was tired of topping the ball and slicing it. ever since then i have been practicing outside my yard, going to the driving range, and i just feel more consistent. im getting really REALLY good now, but i still have a long way to go. 

 

 

8 out of ten times i would hit the ball right and straight as an arrow. there are other times i just whiff it, but that doesnt happen often anymore. i think getting lessons was the best thing i ever did. my swing is alot better than it used to.
