Titleist DCI Oversize Plus Black with tri-spec stiff shafts

Recommended Posts

I have been playing golf for about 10 months with this set of irons and about a 25 handicap now.  I have started to hit these clubs very well.  I want to buy a new set of iron within the next few months.  I wanted some help to see what i should upgrade to.  I see alot of good things about the ap2 and ap1.  Im thinking about getting a set of dci 990s or 690cb. I dont really want a set of pure game improvement irons i plan to keep the next set of irons I buy for at least a few years. So I want something that will still be playable when my handicap gets lower and swing gets better.

Trust me. Please wait until you miss hit every club almost the same way. THEN go and get fitted by a professional. THEN buy a set of second hand clubs that match your new swing, or have the second hand clubs adjusted. Your swing has many changes to encounter. Then you will want to upgrade from your second set of clubs. Be patient. Don't waste money (like I did when I first started). I suggest you wait 6 months at the very least. Keep playing. There are many discoveries (ah hah moments) that you will encounter along the way. Be patient, don't switch clubs yet.

It most likely wont be for a few months but a while back I lost my 6 iron. So now I have some cheap replacement with a graphite shaft that I bought from a pawn shop. when looked up just buying that one club for my set it cost like 50 bucks if I could even find it at the time when I had the money for it. I have seen I could get a set of 690.cb for like 150 bucks. So I wanted to get those in a couple months so I would have uniform set for a couple of years.

    • @Mr. Desmond, methinks I spoke too soon.  What do you want to bet, he IS back?  (under different screen name however). As in gambling, there are "tells". However, I will now take my leave and NOT engage.
    • I am not sure. Maybe 10-12 years old. I remember when I purchased them, I told myself they were the last  set of irons I would buy.  My fairway woods are probably 7, or 8 years old.  My putter is the great grand pa in my bag. I also have a couple of loose iron clubs that are pretty old.  Both my irons, and woods still serve me quite well. They are quality stuff. 
    • I'm interested in skytrak and other similar devices (more affordable at home indoor launch monitors).  I've been reading about them and watching reviews, and every single one seems to analyze the accuracy of the distance related numbers.  I don't care about distance when it comes to these devices, I only care about directional accuracy.  I want to know if I'm hitting the ball straight.     Are there reviews out there that I haven't found that focus on this aspect of these devices?
    • Avoid the greenside bunkers at all costs. If you end up in one, strongly consider playing at the center of the green instead of at the flag. And by strongly consider, I mean do that unless you're 100% sure you can pull off the shot without ending in another greenside bunker. 
    • This is pretty much what all teaching is based on.  The idea that changes in your alignments will make you a better player.   If a player comes in with either too strong or two weak a grip or a flying right elbow or a flat swing or an upright swing, the average teacher wants too change it.   I too believe there is certain things you can do to change your swing.  But I more importantly believe that a proper transition fixes a lot of little details.  I think most people would agree that tiger, jack, Sam Snead, Ben hogan, lee Trevino, and nick faldo are some of the best ball strikers and best winners of all time.   But Trevino had a really strong grip and hogan had a really weak one.  So any where in between will work.  Hogan had a really tucked elbow and jack had a flying elbow.  So anywhere in between will work.   Sam Snead had a pretty upright swing as did jack and tiger but hogan and Trevino both much flatter.  So anywhere inbetween will work. All these players do have one thing in common and that is a similar lower bodie transition
