what can I gain from a new set of irons
Golf Gear mentioned in this thread:
Do yourself a favor and do not spend a lot of money...
Go with the di 100 line from wilson... Once you start hitting better and play with them a couple years and shoot in the 80.s consistently then you can look at more blade like... I could say go right to the ci 11s from wilson but the di 100's should be great and you will have more fun out there...
Go with the Adams 1208 4-GW in uniflex steel. You can get these brand new for around 200.00 on ebay and they originally retailed for 499.00. These irons hit solid and have nice feel and balance as well as good perimeter weighting and a nice wide sole. At the current price its a steal. Quality irons from a trusted name in golf.
I dont think it is going to work out with my current coach unfortunately. I feel like he is treating me like I have much more experience than I really do. I feel like we are working on things that are far too advances especially when I dont know the fundamentals of what is supposed to happen in a golf swing. I told him the other day I may be better served spending more time practice swinging without a ball because I feel the swing path and find it easier to concentrate on the the things I should be focusing on and he thought that was silly. What are your thoughts ?
Have a talk with him next time and express your concerns. One of two things will happen: he will adjust to ensure that you are getting the most out of your time together, or he won't. If he does, mission accomplished. If not, then you'll know it's time to move on.
And please do yourself a favor and do not purchase a set of clubs merely on the recommendation of someone on this site (that includes me). Use the suggestions as a starting point, but never, under any circumstances, purchase clubs without some serious demo time. At a minimum, hit them on the range (don't go solely based on hitting them into a net). If you can, take them out for a round or two.
i'd goto a golf galaxy or your nearest golf course that has a big enough selection of irons with a range or simulator to test out some clubs..
I did this a few weeks ago, went to a golf course that has a huge selection of everything, and originally had my eyes set on some Rocketballz irons.. And figured i'd be in and out in like 30-40mins... Well 3 hours later lol, i walked out with some Adam's Tight Lies Irons.. over the next week i hit the crap out of these irons, and then ended up buying some Titleist's off Ebay , in a spur of the moment buy at 4am lol....
Now while I like the Adams.. I really like the Titleist's..
and then on the really screwy side lol, last weekend I bought a set of Taylormade R7's off ebay.. So now i am sitting with 3 sets of irons... all of them are about the same, except the Titleist's are forged..
i do know a lot of guys like the Taylormade irons, especially the Rocketballz.. but seriously go in with a open mind about this and just try out a bunch of them...
