Returning player looking for new clubs

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

As the title says I returned to golf today having not touched a club since August. I am looking for an entire new bag as I still have the Wilson Deep Red package set. What irons would you guys recommend? I hit the range today with my irons, hitting them clean even after months away from the game. My bad shots were a hook. Ideally I'd like irons that have a good feel, workable but still retaining some forgiveness.

I don't really know your skill level, but assuming the handicap you have listed is legit:

 

  1. Take lessons. Dollar for dollar, you're going to get a lot more out of lessons than a new set of irons. If lessons aren't a possibility because of time or financial constraints, then at least take a look at the 5 Simple Key videos and begin working on a more fundamentally sound swing. 
  2. Get fitted for irons. Regardless of your skill level, playing with irons that are a poor fit is like trying to read with someone else's glasses on. They may work, but in the end, you're probably just going to have a headache.
  3. Create a "My Swing" thread here. There are some great teachers on this site, as well as some good amateur players, that are more than willing to share some advice. Just make sure you become involved with the site. Members are much more willing to share advice with other members that they interact with.

I'm gonna say try to resist temptation and just buy another package set, Dunlop or whatever is fine.  You can get all new stuff with a new bag for under $200 and unless you're planning to hit 300yd drives they will hold up fine and outperform your Deep Red set.  Of course none of the rest of us can actually manage to resist buying name-brand a la carte clubs for the fun of it but for 95% of the golfing public the new technology filters down well enough to the cheap box sets to allow you to score the same regardless.
