Best Beginner Clubs (irons and driver)

3 posts in this topic

Hello,

I used to golf when I was 18-20 years of age with my grandfathers old clubs. I was pretty good against my friends who had new expensive clubs.

I am now a young businessman who is in a field where sometimes customers meet on the golf course.

I really do not want to overspend on a set of clubs but I want something that is well built and won't break the bank.

Any brands or particular models I should be looking at is great.

i'm still relatively new to the sport.  i believe that just about every major manufacturer has both "tour" clubs (for better players) and "game improvement" clubs (for guys like you and me).  the cool thing about golf is that the 2nd hand market is ENORMOUS.  there are guys/gals that trade out equipment on an annual basis.  this means that you can get your hands on stuff that was deemed in 2011 or 2012 as "the best ever" FOR CHEAP.

or you can get some clubs from around 2008-2010 for next to nothing.  my iron set is a Callaway Fusion set (circa 2006?), and they work fine.  (i spent 150 bucks on the irons and wedges).  i have a Callaway FT9 driver ($40).  i have an Odyssey White Hot #9 putter ($30).  for roughly 200 bucks, i got a pretty decent starter set.  i got everything from craigslist.  as i get better, i will invest in some newer clubs.  at this point, these irons work great for me.

i'm a craigslist beast!  download the craigslist app to your iphone/android and it will make searching even easier!  if you have questions on a particular model, google them or check on this website (using the search feature).  there is a boatload of info available (maybe too much!)

hit em straight bro

Wilson staff! The staff line is a great line for biggeners and they look sharp. The di11 irons will be great for a player that has trouble getting the ball into the air. They run for around 250 on ebay. woods and hybrids the burner 2.0 series is very forgiving in my eyes with a little ofset i love the hybrid i game it. If you have trouble putting check out a mallet putter i love my 2 ball and i know you can get a older model for around 60 bucks that people still game from 5 years ago. Driver is hard because alot of new golfers hack balls of the tee , pshh i still have a occasional duck of the tee.  If i was looking for a new driver and saved money on the other things i have above i would look at A Titleist 910d2 (get fit),ping g20 taylormade burner superfast. Those are clubs i  think i would like but you and me may have very differnet taste.

    • This will happen to me when I have the optimal club release. My distance hog is that I don't release the club well into the ball, and I kind of just pull it through. It works, but when I relax and get a good swing with a great controlled release through my hands I can feel the difference and it does go MUCH farther. 
    • A couple of videos and pictures from Turnberry yesterday - didn't play brilliantly, but managed +12 in serious wind, particularly on the front nine. Putting was hard with the new greens and I three putted twice on the front nine for the first time in ages. I also found it very hard in the wind and kept trying to fight it, overthinking things rather than sticking to what I was comfortable with. As a result, I only really found my game with a few holes to play. Highlights were a birdie on the par 5 eighth, an awesome drive on the 10th, which I got on camera, and making the Tom Watson 2009 up and down, having gone over the back as well from near the plaque . The course itself was incredible - the greens haven't yet fully settled in and so there are different speeds all over the place, but it's such a good test. If you don't find the fairway, you can't score.   Very short swings due to crazy amount of wind! Fourth green - with the wind, you have to start the ball off the left of it, pretty much on the ocean...: Second shot into the 7th green. Didn't make the putt (story of the day!): View from the new championship tee for the 9th: Panoramic view from the 10th green. Arguably the most scenic par five anywhere: My Tom Watson 2009 moment captured (sort of - plaque, tee shot and where my 6 iron over the back finished up): Not worth the money, I don't think - hard for it to ever be the case at the price, but I loved every minute of it. It's a great course and deserves to have the Open back soon. Western Gailes today and hopefully my swing is on better form!

    • Count me in. Charlotte is only about an hour away for me, which is no problem.
    • I hit whatever the current TM model was in the spring but really like the AP1's. But I'll do a proper unbiased fitting and see what the results are as in both instances for iron fittings, it's been done by Titleist reps.
