Hey,

New here, been browsing for a couple of months and reading quite a lot. i just started playing 6 months back,  once a week. when i started out i was normally playing 135ish on a par 72 course now am down to abt 105ish depending on my day but the past 4-5 times i have been playing 105ish.

am currently using a wilson deep red set 5-sw and a tm white smoke putter. the drivers woods n the hybrid are a pain always  slice or hit the top of the ball so i just play the irons. i am 36,  5 ft 11 with wrist to floor 37 inches. 5 iron is anywhere from 180-200 yds. the pw is abt110ish. n

now everyone is telling me the clubs are short for me and the grips r too thin. i have been thinking of getting new clubs, what would you suggest ? i am not in a place where i can get a fitting done but have been thinking of the tm burner 2.0 or callaway x24. the ball which i use is the titelist dt solo

your suggestions ?

The Taylormade Rocketballz irons would be a good fit.  Great for beginners, or if you are really struggling to get the ball in the air then I would suggest the Rocketballs Max.  I would probably upgrade the woods too.

Priced at $1,300.00 for just a set of irons may be a big jump for a beginner. I don't think buying the next new big thing is always the best idea. Also, the OP states they are having trouble hitting the hybrids. The RocketBladez Max irons are all basically hybrids. They are very beefed up irons. I'm not sure these clubs are a good fit.

I looked on the New Delhi world guide web site, and it says the city has 20 golf courses.

Could you possibly contact one of the non-country clubs and see if the pro could do a fitting for you? And maybe give you a lesson? With the resort courses, you might be able to get a good set of used clubs which could be tweaked a little to fit your stance and swing.

Just a thought.

Thank you every one. Played today, even 100 on a par 72, 49 on the fromt and 51 on the back, tee shots sucked, shots of the faiway, if i landed on there, sucked the club was twisting in the hand. Putting was perfct. Am also thinking callaway razr x or tm burner 2 what are ur thoughts on these sets ? Am looking to find a fitter though

A fitter would be very good like the others mentioned.  The TM Burner irons would probably be a better choice, but it is mainly up to you and your fitter.

Regarding club length and grip size, If your fingers on your left had sit nicely into your palm when holding the club, stay as you are. If a grip is too small then you may start hitting the ball left and if the grips are too large then you may start blocking out to the right. Don't mess with club length just yet. Unless you are 6" 5 or 4"5 stay as standard for now until your golf gets a little better then have another look at it.

Finally found a fitter and i took my clubs to him ( wilson deep red) he took some measurements and found i needed 1 inch on my clubs and a bigger grip size. This was a basic fitting didn't cost me a penny, he used some chart / standup he had from ping

    • 1. I remark on PP's good shots, and stay quiet on the bad ones. I don't say "good shot" just because I hear good contact ( the ball may be 40 yards off target). 2. I use my PP's names regularly (especially if just-met)...Dale Carnegie training 'the one sound each and every person loves is the sound of their name" 3. Mark someone's ball, replace a divot, rake a bunker (esp if he's thinned it over the green) 
    • Phil had diarhia  of the mouth yesterday, giving a reason for the poor play of he and tiger in 2004 RC as not being prepared to play and test Tigers golf ball that is "higher spin" versus his low spin ball.  Plausible only with Phil.  4-5 hours??? Puh-lease. I have been involved in 3rd party testing of golf balls and i can actually say that Phil is full of Sh*t here. The overall difference in spin from tour caliber golf balls, rememebr we are going back to to 2004, the diference is insignificant off the driver, from eight iron on down to wedges the spin characteriscs averge out  from one one spinny tour ball to and the next low spin tour ball is less than 5%. in other words a 5000 RPM wedge shot with the higher spin ball would be 4750 RPM at the worst case scenario.  Remember these are 20o3-04 golf balls, the TA and PV1 are just a couple of years old at this point. Phil likes to talk, I get that, I like the guy, but please just shut up about ball spin and admit you ( and tiger) played badly, too much limelight for both is much more plausible. Two thumbs up for Hal  Suttons response too.   In alternate shot, you play with one ball, and that was the issue, Mickelson said. "[Woods] found out the year before when we played at the Presidents Cup in 2003 that the golf ball I was playing was not going to work for him," Mickelson said. "He plays a very high-spin ball and I play a very low-spin ball, and we had to come up in two days with a solution. "So I grabbed a couple dozen of his balls, I went off to the side, and tried to learn his golf ball in a four- or five-hour session on kind of an isolated -- one of the other holes out there trying to find out how far the ball goes. And it forced me to stop my preparation for the tournament, to stop chipping and stop putting and stop sharpening my game and stop learning the golf course, in an effort to crash-course and learn a whole different golf ball that we were going to be playing. "In the history of my career, I have never ball-tested two days prior to a major. I've never done it. It doesn't allow me to play my best. What allows me to play my best is to learn the course, sharpen my touch on the greens, sharpen my chipping out of the rough and ball striking and so forth. "Instead, I'm taking four or five hours and I'm out trying to learn another ball to allow us to play our best. Had we known a month in advance, we might have been able to make it work. I think we probably would have made it work. But we didn't know until two days prior."
    • I played baseball at a big 10 university for 4 years, tennis for 40 years, and learned to play golf at a very young age but did not play frequently in my younger years.  Accordingly, I am athletic and have a decent game for my age group now.  Extremely accurate but not long by any stretch.  When I was 60, I started to take golf seriously (Like most people getting close to retirement age) and really can't complain about my game.  The one thing that took me forever to learn and understand is:  "Feel is NOT real."  What you THINK you are doing is NOT really what you are doing.  So......I would advise any player who wants to improve their game to, have some video taken of your swing and watch it.  You will be amazed.  Your swing will be NOTHING like you think it is.  (LOL) 
    • That's great! Is your season ending too? I'm going to be sad to see it end.   Thanks, everyone! He played well yesterday (tied for 2nd out of 21 players) and today he's playing 2 hours away at the "hardest course in our state", according to his coach. Yikes! 
      After today, he will be practicing for the championship. We're going to go play the course on Sunday. (By we, I mean him and his teammate - with me driving the cart.) ;)
      The tournament is Thursday, so we have a week to get ready. 
      Here's a nice hit from yesterday.
