Okay, something I have been struggling with is hitting shots out of the bunker. (I think) a lot of people have problems with it, but mine is especially horrid, trust me. During my last lesson, my golf teacher let me use his sand wedge, and of course, I hit the ball right onto the green, first try. Then he threw another ball into the bunker, and what did I do? Same thing. Night and day, honestly. We quickly came to the conclusion that I needed to get a new sand wedge, pronto.
My boyfriend gave me a 58 degree wedge a while ago, just because he never used it and thought I could use it to replace my horrendous sand wedge. However, my golf teacher told me that I shouldn't use it, because it was too long, and that I should definitely not use it until I got it cut down. Here's question one: how much would it hurt me to use a club (sand wedge in particular) that is too long for me, if I just choke up on it? Or do I need to go buy a lady's sand wedge? (question 2 ties into this as well) Money's tight for this college kid, so if I can avoid buying a new sand wedge, I would.
Topic number two: Female vs male flexes. I went into a golf store the other day and tested out some drivers, just for fun. I was doing alright with the women's drivers, and then the guy working there decided I should try out a men's driver because of my club head speed (no, I don't know what that number was, unfortunately.) So much better. When I do decide to buy a driver, I will definitely be getting a men's regular flex. Question two is, when I look into buying other types of clubs, should I look in the men's and just get them cut down? Or is it just the driver that I would need a men's in? Men's vs women's clubs in general? Opinions are greatly appreciated!
