Hi - New to the Forum - but hoping to get some adivce/opinions on a question I have.  I am a mid-80's player, and I have broken 80 a handful of times with 76 being my lowest score.

I was hitting my driver about 245 regularly, but I had a lot of spin and a very high launch.  On the advice of a guy at Golf Town, I got my driver reshafted.  I was hitting a 55g regular flex with a low kick point (the shaft that came with the driver).  They put in an Adilla NV 65 stiff shaft.  Long story short, it instantly reduced my spin and I started driving this thing up the middle and I was carrying about 260 yards.  This has got me thinking that I shoudl look into reshafting my 3 wood and hybrids.  I am even considering reshafting my 5 and 6 irons as I pull them left and think I may need a stiffer flex.

So, my question - should I look into buying new equipment, or just stick to reshafting?  I currently hit Adams Idea Tech A4 Irons and hybrids (3&4) with regular flex.  I like the clubs, and would prefer to keep the heads if it made sense.

Any advice would greatly be appreciated.  Also, if you can suggests any good shafts for a three wood, hybrid, or irons - that would be great.  I am looking for a lower ball flight and less spin.

Thanks

Definitely consider re-shafting over new clubs. Shafts can make a world of difference. Have you considered checking the lie angle of the irons you are pulling to see if that could be the cause. Obviously your swing speed is probably the biggest factor since you are using regular flex shaft in your irons as well, but the lie angle could definitely be a cause of the lefts.....especially if it's consistent.

    • Glad to see someone finally step up and take the tournament versus someone just hanging on.  
    • At TST we have the no sixes challenge.  I have been thinking periodically and marking when I sometimes see pros with no fives (or worse).  Rahm came close:  his fourth and thirteenth holes were fives, the rest were four or lower.  Maybe I should gather some examples of pros having all fours and below and make a thread. 
    • No one yet... If 82x > 73y, giving Tiger first, and I think a clear first. Still, you would need someone from this generation to win probably 60 PGA tour wins, and about 12 majors or so. I think that person has a case to say they could challenge 2nd place.  No one in the past has the number of wins. Maybe if Sneed had like 100+ wins and 14+ majors. 
    • Proud of Louis though.. except for tee shot on 17th he was ice all day. Did not fold like the other 'studs'.  Cannot agree more. Enjoyed it thoroughly. Rahm got his redemption so a great story there too.. 
    • Why don’t you like Rahm? Not that it matters. Curiosity.
