Beginner Clubs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Hello Everyone!

 

I have been in and out of the golf scene for a few years now.  When I was at my first set of golf lessons, the instructor urged me to buy my first set of Irons; a $600 set of Nike Irons. 

 

From there, I bought a bag and started buying a driver (R9) followed by my 3 Wood and 5 Wood, both Taylor Made.

 

These clubs are way beyond my playing grade.  They are not forgiving.

 

I am wondering if I should put these clubs away and invest in a beginner set - something I can use to learn to play and have a great time. 

 

Any thoughts?

They are probably fine. What loft is the driver? What flex are the clubs?

Thanks for the reply MVMAC.  Not sure of the answers on both, is there a way I can find out?

When I taught my son and wife to play, I only told them to take putter, Driver and odd irons.  They hit all of them the same distance when they were just starting anyway (all their irons went around 100 yards).  $600 seems like a pretty pricey set for a beginner.

Usually loft can be found on the driver head & flex can be found on the shaft.
