I am new, real new, bought a garbage pair of Alien clubs to see if id stick out this golf thing. Im sold. Replaced the drive with a SUMO 5900, pure spin wedges that i love, and know exatly what putter and woods im gonna get. I am blown away by the performance of the 5900 and im set on nike irons. Only thing im stuck on is the choice between the SUMO irons and the 4D's. My iron game is slowly improved, but im built for power, not finese, so the short game is lacking, and ball striking is inconsistent as all hell. I found a used set of 4d's on global golf for under 300 with shipping. Anyone want to chime in and give a clueless newb some advice.

Not sure there is a perfect answer here. The Sumo irons (especially the set with hybrids) are going to be easier to hit in the short term because they are really designed to be very forgiving. However, the 4D is also a forgiving set but will also be a bit more versatile going forward. I think the ideal set for you would be to get the 4D, then replace at least the longest club (which I think is a 4 iron in that set) with a hybrid. The best thing to do is just to try both sets and see which one you like the look, feel and sound of best (plus price).

yea im def leaning towards the 4D's, the set i have no has a 3 and 4 hybrid that arent too bad. i swung the 4d's and really liked them, but than again, dont think i know what good is really.

    • The instructor who initially built my swing works at the only indoor range in my city, so I started seeing him by default. I kept seeing him because of his analytical approach, the convenience of his schedule and proximity, and his reasonable rates. When I was looking at new instructors, my choice was based on his instructional philosophy (which is more, but not entirely, feel-based than the previous instructor) and reviews on Yelp. I must say that even if his technique is not fit for me, I did feel like I left with a much more of concrete lesson thanks to his teaching style.
    • Really? Those two are fairly different. How are you vetting the instructor(s) you're choosing?
    • Yes, that’s my “former” swing. I felt way too close to the ball with the new swing, and was coming drastically out-to-in. (For what it’s worth, my previous instructor built my “former” swing on a template of Rahm and JT.)
    • That's… very close to the ball. Like Tiger level close, Finau level close. In the bottom photo, I like the swing on the left more. Is that the "former" swing?
    • Reverse Texas scramble... hell.  Golf messes up your head.
