Hello everyone. I found this website a few days ago and have found some really interesting stuff. I just started to get into golf last summer and really want to improve this summer.

I bought a Walter Hagen MS2 set last summer and it has been a great beginner set so far. I am finally looking to add different clubs to my set. I am looking into a 52 degree wedge considering my SW is a 56. All of my shafts are steel I believe.

What are the differences between steel and graphite shafts? Advantages/Disadvantages?

Does one hit further than the other?

Any information would be great!

Graphite shafts for driver and fairway woods are great.  For now stick to steel on 52* wedge You are trying to hit for accuracy not distance.

    • Really, really bad.   I feel like it was for punching out from trees, not as a driving iron.   He wasn’t going to knock it on the green as a second shot on a par 5 either….   his set was: driver 3 wood 2 x 5 woods  ( a “clam digger” and a “normal” ) 6 wood 7 wood 9 wood 11 wood 12 wood 15 wood 2 iron 6 iron SW putter 
    • Ding! I'm with you, brother. If you are playing a casual round, do what ever you want. I couldn't care less what you write down on your scorecard. Personally, I'm trying to improve and learn to play in tournaments and competitive events (granted against hcp), so I really try to follow the rules.  And to be honest, most of them aren't that difficult. Every now and then I come across a one that I'm confused on. 
    • Did they want just the front or both sides? There really nothing on the back of mine. So when you refused to take all the required vaccines for enlistment into the Marines, what did they say?
    • Good for you. Congratulations.  People who don't golf, don't get it.  As a person who's not naturally good at golf, I can really appreciate the achievement. Seriously, it IS a great feeling and a great achievement. ENJOY
    • This seems to happen all the time. I used to be a little league umpire and if a kid got called out he was normally fine with it. I mean disappointed, but fine. The coaches, however, were sometimes huge D-bags. I once had a coach pull his team off the field because of a fair ball vs foul ball call. I umpired for two seasons and I probably have 100 stories of D-bag coaches or parents. ... Parents I sometimes get. They don't always know the rules. But coaches... come on.    This
