do i really need new irons?

4 posts in this topic

i am a high +20 handicap (average 106 per round), just got back in the game.

added a new driver (Nike) and a SW

but own a knock off cavity back set of irons, they are re shafted (+1) to accommodate my size, (6' 4") per a lesson with a club pro.

i would like a new set since these are 10 YO, but do i NEED them? i am working on improving my game first before i shell out any more cash

Knockoffs or not, your current irons were custom-fit to you. If they worked once upon a time, and you can more or less hit them now, work on getting your swing back. Then, get fit for a new set.

You can try out some iron sets while you're coming back .

Since it's late in the season, plan on going to some winter golf expos and early spring demo days before making final decision.

Depending on how deep your pockets are, new clubs are a great way to ramp up your enthusiasm for the game.  Whats more, newer technology found in current irons could improve your overall accuracy, distance and ball striking. All of that should lead to better/lower scores.  Another option is to get a current fitting done and then shop the trade-in programs.  You may find a set that fits your specs.  Callaway has a great inventory of used clubs.  You may find what you're looking for at an affordable price.  Either way, keep playing golf!

Your Irons are 10 years old?    I'm currently carrying an 8 handicap, and although I'd be lying if I didn't look at other irons sometimes,  I haven't felt the need to pull the trigger yet, and I've been hoofing the same set of irons for 15 years  (98' until now)

If you think your irons aren't suitable for your skill level,  then buy some new ones  (used,  that's what I'd do... too many nice sets out there for cheap vs. paying MSRP)  otherwise,  just keep working with what you have.

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
