Welcome to my second post!
So, this is the same old story that I am sure many of you have seen over and over again. I'm in my mid 30's and have taken a renewed interest in golf over the last year. With that being said, I am also a total newbie. There is a ton of terminology that I need to learn, so there are probably some specific questions that I cannot answer.
Here is the crux of my situation. I have been using my uncle's old Golfsmiths for the past year. These things are probably old enough to be tried as an adult. I have updated my woods over the last year or so. I'm hitting a Taylormade Burner Superfast 2.0 10.5 driver, Burner Superfast 3 Wood (LOVE this club) and a Burner rescue 3 Hybrid. I recently picked up a Burner 4 hybrid and Odyssey White Ice Mini T Putter.
So, I am in need of some Irons. I won my fantasy football league this year and am using my winnings for Irons, so I have a around $400 budget. I see these as my gateway irons. By that I mean that no matter what I get, they will be far superior to what I am currently using and I will either become obsessed with golf or I'll realize that I enjoy it but I will never take it too seriously. I'm not sure if that makes any sense.
So my goal is to get the best irons I can, have them last me a few years and stay near my budget.
Here are the Irons I am considering:
Taylormade Burner Plus 4-AW
Taylormade Burner 2.0 4-AW
Calloway RAZR X HL 4-AW
I have the burner 4 hybrid so I don't need the 4 iron and I have a Tom Watson Performance Grind Wedge SW, so I am good there.
I know there are a lot of ways to make this call and a lot of factors that go into it. I don't know much about my swing speed, but here are a few things I can tell you about my game:
1. I tend to be pretty accurate
2. I hit my woods for distance, but my irons have always been lacking in that area
3. When I miss-hit, I slice it...
Ok, I know that was wordy and I appreciate you sticking it out... I look forward to some expert feedback!
