Hope you all had a good weekend!
I have now managed to achieve and surpass my target of 18 by year end! Lets see if i can now stay there and get even lower if possible!
I promised myself a new set of irons once I achieved my target in order to to try and futher improve my game and I reckon now is the time! Plus as my 30th birthday is comming up shortly my better half has agreed to purchase the set of my choice!! So need to take advantage! haha
I just wanted to obtain your views and advice on which would be best suited for a mid handicapper like myself! I am currently split between 2 sets.....The Nike VR Pro Combo Irons and the Titleist AP1's. I am a sucker for Nike so I am probably more swayted towards the combo irons! The current nike irons (2010 Slingshots, super game improver irons) I game have served me well as I have gone from 28 handicap from May 2012 to 17.8 in September 2013. And this has been achieved WITHOUT any lessons or club fittings whatsoever and by playing once a week and twice a week when i have had the chance! My local is also the San Roque Golf Club which boasts 2 championship courses so I have been tested! I have had my fair share of ups and downs but I feel proud on what I have achieved by working on my game pretty much on my own. I now want to get myself a set of game enhancement irons.
I am taking my golf extremely serioulsy now and in order to get better there are a couple of small targets I want achieve perhaps by year end: 1. Have a few lessons with the local pro to try and refine my swing and technique even further to become even more consistent (understanding that in the short term I may take one step back to go two forward) and 2. Actually get fiitted for then new irons.
I have done so research on the Combos and AP1's however I would be grateful if any of you who currently game either of theses sets to let me know their strengths and weaknesses and how they have helped you and what i should be looking at in each set! I am also open to suggestions of other sets.
