illegal golf clubs

I just got a new driver with its head being 525 cc square driver. I just started playing golf about a week ago and since i got this driver i can hit about 300 yards with a bounce n roll and ofcourse a minor slice. Do you think that it is smart to use this driver until i have been playing for a while and then switching to a 460cc or just not use this club cause it can hurt my development? Also I love the square design

525cc??? That would be like swinging a stick with a shoebox on the end of it.

I would say to get a 460cc and work at it. I mean, 460cc is more than plenty of room to hit a golf ball. You shouldn't have any problem hitting with any driver out there. If you go to Dick's, you can find some really good drivers for under $150.00. That's just my $0.02

If you like it, use it. You aren't competing or anything so have fun. My friend uses an illegal wedge because he an spin the hell out of a ball with it. Granted it ruins balls as well, but he has fun with it when messing around.

Personally, I have a 460cc but wish I had something smaller. All the extra head space doesn't help me so much and really probably slows my swing slightly. But whatever, it works.

I can't imagine a head that big. It must look ridiculous.

it really doesnt look strange at all because of the square design, it helps me because i have a problem with hitiing the ball to low(for some reason) so no matter what as long as i dont hit the ground the ball will hit the sweet spot

Seems like you would lose speed with a head that large, you should try a smaller head im sure you will be able to swing it even faster. If you have trouble hitting low than try a 11 or 13 degree driver

I like my Sumo2 square driver. Eventhough it looks like a waffle maker on a stick, it launches the ball high and long for me. I probably won't buy another driver for a while, its cool to be square(at least for me).

I'd keep using your ginormous driver until your game develops further. After it improves, I'd look around for a decent driver; nothing wrong with decent used clubs or models from a few years back.

    • Because when an athlete describes what went wrong in a post round interview, it's always 100% accurate. 1. I do play w/ schmucks (myself included).
      2. One of us chokes pretty consistently (one of the schmuckier schmucks we have), and for 10 years he does fine in our $2 nassaus and but only loses $$ in all our "big" games. Even when he's been playing well that year (index down), we play net, so he still loses, and even he admits he just gets the nerves. I'm glad he can be comforted knowing that mental games is a tiny portion of his overall performance.  Gump says "life is like a box of chocolates". I'm allergic to chocolate so this is just wrong, literally, figuratively and in every way. (That was a whole lot of sarcasm.  My mom would kill me if she saw me posting like this.  I do mean it in the most fun way possible)
    • Dustin Johnson has different physical abilities than Jordan Spieth does, none more evident than the playoff at the Northern Trust. That week, Dustin Johnson, the person with the better physical ability, won, and the reason why he won was because he was physically superior to Spieth with his drive on the playoff hole. No, top pros dont have similar physical abilities.  There is over a 40 yard difference between the shortest driving average (271) and the longest driving average (317) on the PGA tour this year. Pros dont have similar physical abilities.
    • Welcome. I know it seems like summer now, and for a bit more, but it's officially fall, lol. Unfortunately, the munis are gonna be a huge letdown compared to the courses you've mentioned , but if you need any info, just holler. 
    • Welcome! Depending on whether or not you drive and where you live in the city, there are plenty of passable courses in the boroughs. Dyker Beach and Marine Park in Brooklyn ok. Short and fun. Clearview in Queens is alright. Staten Island has a bunch of decent courses, but if you dont drive its hard to get out there. Theres always Bethpage Park in Long Island, but it can be a haul from the city too if you dont drive. 
    • Yeah, like what dzclarkcpa was saying, alot depends on the grass and the setup of the course. So many different variables come into play and it really just takes experience to learn how to play out of the rough. If you know a grass range that has some thicker grass on it, practice some there and see what it does to your ball flight and distances.  But generally, the more of the back of the ball you can see, the better you'll be able to control it. That doesn't always mean you'd able to hit your normal full swing shot, but it could mean you can play it differently with reasonable control.
