Idea a12 OS for beginner

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

My son really likes this iron set.....Idea a12 OS

 

http://shop.adamsgolf.com/c/irons_idea-a12-os

 

1.  Is this a good set for beginners?

2.  Is it a good idea to start out learning to hit a traditional 5i and 6i......or is the 5h and 6h ok for his future development in golf?

 

Any other thoughts...

 

Thanks!

I have that same set.  I really like them.   I've played with them on a simulator for several weeks and have taken 8 lessons since January.    I believe since they are SGI clubs they would be great for a beginner.   I'm not sure the graphite shafts would be necessary.   The steel shafts would probably save you $100. 

 

I'm eager to get in a round here in Michigan.   With the weather, it may be a month or so.   Yesterday when I had to work we have 70º but the day before most of the golf courses were flooded from the 3+" of rain.   Today we had some snow flurries and tonight the temperature are suppose to dip to the 20s.
 

Good luck,

IMHO a great set to start with. I wish I had a set anywhere near half as good as that to start with.

 

Some will surely disagree, but I like the idea of starting out with the easiest club you can lay your hands on. With luck the learning process will be smoother and the kid will enjoy the game all the more. I serious doubt the extra couple of hybrids will have a detrimental impact on your childs future development in the sport.

 

You know the drill- there are an increasing number of pros playing with more and more hybrids
