Welcome to The Sand Trap. For Woods and hybrids, those are fine. Titleist drivers, woods and hybrids are very forgiving. It is better to focus on learning to play and improve your swing than worrying about the clubs for now.

Have fun!

What you have there is fine.  Gonna need a set of irons though.  Make sure if you are starting out you look at Game improvement or Super game improvement type.  Might want to look into buying a used set as well to save money.

Would Callaway Ladies gem's graphite shafts be ok for a 50 yr old male to start out on?  I do have a slower swing speed.

Might feel too whippy.  Go to a store and swing them and find out.

Yes, do that! And swing them in the bay on a launch monitor. I once looked at some used irons/hybrids at the Golf Galaxy outside Cleveland. They had 3 different sets of them in 3 different shaft flexes. So, I picked a common club from each set and hit it in the bay. If I remember correctly they were Adams clubs. The stiff shafts were just OK. The regular shafts performed great! And the L shafts went nowhere! Just little fizzlers out short and right. Problem was the "set" with regular shafts was short a couple of clubs, so I decided not to buy.

Unless your Titleist clubs have ladies shafts, I wouldn’t recommend them.  You can probably find the same era in irons pretty cheap in a regular flex graphite.

Something like a Taylormade R7 or Ping G10.  Heck, you could probably get some Taylormade Rac OS or Callaway X-14’s and be fine.

You can search Google for Golf Digest hotlist by year that will give you an idea on game improvement irons that you might want to look at.

    • Maybe, but, I see it that it's importance is based on it's particular function due to it's design, which means in this case, you will be using it by far, more often.  Why wouldn't someone invest more into something they would typically use the most? I don't always see what's in front of me...…..  
    • Dig deep enough into any successful organization and you will find skeletons.  Try to imagine golf without the PGA or some analogue. I saw darts on ESPN once.  I have seen fencing a few times.  There are a bunch of video game tournaments, and some even on television now.  I saw a silly documentary on beard competitions. Professional weightlifting.  Trading card games.  Rock climbing.  Cheerleading. They all have competitions - in trivial venues with champions whose names I do not know.  Any of those groups would trade body parts to get the exposure that the PGA gets for this game. But golf gets that exposure. Exposure breeds more players.  More players means golf courses stay solvent.  That means that golf is available for a wider financial range of players who then aspire to be PGA stars.  Some do...and you get a virtuous cycle.   EDIT:  Oh heck.  Ninja'd by mcanadiens
    • WITB:  Driver- Ping G400 LST- Ping TOUR x-stiff   This driver has been in the bag for a couple seasons now. Its the best driver I have ever hit.  3-Wood- Srixon F45 15° Kuro Kage x-stiff   This 3 wood has a tiny head, but its the best fairway wood I have carried to date. I still have some two way misses with it so it's days are numbered if I find something I can trust. 3-Hybrid- Callaway Mavrik Pro KBS Tour Proto x-stiff   Put this hybrid in this week and it's awesome. I have hit it probably 50 times on the range this past week and about 15 times on the course. I have yet to miss left which has always been my concern with hybrids. So far this thing has been a fairway machine off the tee. 4-5 Irons- Callaway 2018 X-Forged Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100   Replaced my last set of Callaway blades with these last summer. I went with the X-Forged for my long irons because they launch a little higher, have a slightly larger blade, and are a bit more forgiving. 6-PW- Callaway 2018 APEX MB Chrome Dynamic Gold Tour Issue X100  Like I said these replaced another set of Callaway blades. I like these a lot. I did lose about 5 yards per club from my last set to these even though the specs were the same. Not a big deal though as I believe I hit these a bit straighter. Wedges- Vokey SM7 Jet Black 52°, 56°, and 60°   Thought these looked kind of cool being all black. Had to have all three bent 1°-2° weaker because they went too far when I got them.  Putter- PING Vault 2.0 Ketsch   The little putter that could. Just put a new SuperStroke CLAW grip on it and I like it even better than before. 
    • I think what @iacas is saying is that simply counting the number of times per round you use a certain club is not the best way to evaluate its importance.
