I recently demo'd a few clubs. There were only a few ladies clubs available. I liked the Cobra Amp 11.5 and the Callaway X hot (although I did not hit it as well as the Cobra or the Adams). I hit the Adams Superline S best in senior shaft. Trouble is there was something about it I did not really warm too. It just looked a little dull.
I am a beginner 50 something woman. I have played a couple of times a year (I know...pointless!) over the past year until recently and I am trying to make time to play every week unless I am away so that I get better so I have played 5 times this year since May. I have joined a club but do not have a handicap yet. I have improved.....over 9 I hit 48 last week for example so I think I will get better and I enjoy it.
I can hit the driver a reasonable way....further than the other women I play with and probably about 200 yards. It is fairly straight most of the time. I have been using a Ben Sayers M7 ladies set, but have swapped out the irons for Cleveland HB3 in senior (ladies clubs are few and far between!) I did try out the ladies version as there was a 5 iron around, but it was much the same for me. I suspect my drive is erratic ( I have a couple of lessons coming up) and I used to play hockey (field I am in UK) so tend to snatch at it a bit....I am not that flexible anymore so the backswing is not as high as it could be.
I want to look at a new driver as the set one is not titanium and can be improved upon I am sure.
So my questions are:....
- what else should I try....what else is similar to the Adams?
- do the fairways/hybrids need to be the same make/model?
- Should I look at senior or ladies shafts? The irons seem to suit me OK in senior, but the extra length of the driver may have a different impact I suppose.
Or should I just get a 2nd hand reasonable driver for now and it does not matter too much?
Appreciate your wisdom, thanks
