In Need of Help Building Complete Set

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Hello, I am looking to start golfing again and am looking to piece together a set of used clubs. I have never really played golf before and have very little knowledge when it comes to the subject. When I was little I had a junior set of clubs and went to a few courses and played a few times with my dad and grandfather which was nearly 12 years ago. I have the urge to start golfing again and feel that I am done growing, so I will not have to worry about lengthening/adjusting my clubs every year. I have went to the range a few times using my Dad's old clubs, but honestly they should stay retired and be put in a museum somewhere. I was planning on using them for a while before buying my own set, but I would need to get them lengthened/adjusted to use them properly.

 

Anyways, I found a set of Adams Idea Tech v4 Hybrid 4H-GW set that looked like they were in great condition and are priced reasonably. Would they be a good set of irons to start off with? What else would I need to complete the set? I know I'll need a putter, driver, maybe some Fairway woods?

If they fit you comfortably, they're a reasonable starting set. 4-GW in that set will have you covered from 22 to 49 degrees; a driver and a putter are good ideas, as is a sand wedge (54 or 56 degrees, look for something with lots of bounce -- at least 10 degrees, preferably 14).

Fairway woods are fine, too -- those would be the next things added. But once you have the above 11 clubs, you'll have enough to get started at even a regulation course. Obviously longer clubs are better -- you'll eventually want a 3W and 5W, but for now, driver, those irons, sand wedge and putter will allow you to get started.

Welcome to TST and welcome back to golf!

Alright thanks, but I'm not really sure what a comfortable fit truly is, lol. Being 7' tall I assume no matter what clubs I buy that I will need to get them lengthened anyways.

Get a lesson and fitting session from a good pro, not many people are that tall.... on stilts!
Even though you are freakishly tall, you might be surprised at how little the clubs need lengthening, as I imagine your arms will be quite long and the length of a shaft is generally decided from your wrist to floor measurement! However, if your 7ft and you have short arms, then you probably won't be able to reach your pocket to pay for them anyway!

Haha alright, thanks for the help, I'm going to look in my area and see if I can find someone to help me out with sizing + lessons. I was also able to find a good deal on a set ping i20's, that I might take a look at as well. I hope you are right about not having to lengthen the clubs much, my arm's aren't too short but I do have pretty long legs with a 40" inseam. Thanks for all the help I really appreciate it.

Wow! 40" inseam!!! Maybe you could just attach a club head to your shoe and kick the ball! Seriously, I'd be interested to know how you get on! Keep us updated! I'm kinda hoping there's some tall people on here who can give you a better idea!
