Hey there... I'm in the market for new clubs, so I figured I'd join and ask for advice (in a dedicated thread).

I'm a college student who took golf lessons for a bit in high school, got decent, then broke his wrist and sucked from thereon after. I went from a slice to a hook... My game totally changed, and I kind of gave up.

Still played occasionally, though... Once every couple months.

Right now I'm shooting around 100, at best, but I want to get back into golf and cut that score down.

My family owns a thrift store (and a bunch of commercial properties, but I digress), and as we were loading the contents of an estate sale, I spied a full set of Titleist DCI 962 irons, a few Big Bertha Titaniums, and a nice Ping putter... And an Adams Tight Lies hybrid.

Being that clubs go for $1 each in our store, my cousin did the right thing and rescued them, so now he wants to start playing with me.

So that's one reason I'm trying to get back into golf.

Might try to get my roommate in on it too, since he wants to work on Wall Street but has no experience with golf.

So I think it could be fun, and there are a couple of cheap courses in Atlanta (my current city).

I'm and English and poli sci double major, who wants to go to law school... Not much else to add.

Anyway, hello people.

There was an almost identical thread earlier today. I'll tell you the same thing I told the other member, because I think it still applies:

I don't really know your skill level, but assuming the handicap you have listed is legit:

Take lessons. Dollar for dollar, you're going to get a lot more out of lessons than a new set of irons. If lessons aren't a possibility because of time or financial constraints, then at least take a look at the 5 Simple Key videos and begin working on a more fundamentally sound swing.

Get fitted for irons. Regardless of your skill level, playing with irons that are a poor fit is like trying to read with someone else's glasses on. They may work, but in the end, you're probably just going to have a headache.

Create a "My Swing" thread here. There are some great teachers on this site, as well as some good amateur players, that are more than willing to share some advice. Just make sure you become involved with the site. Members are much more willing to share advice with other members that they interact with.

Welcome to TST!

Ohh no, I'm not looking for new irons to help my game... I'm looking for new irons because mine are made for someone 4'9", and I'm 5'5". Ohh... And my other set was fitted for someone who's 6'3". So... None of my clubs are the right size, anymore. I still play with the short ones, though. Lessons are great... Like I said, I took lessons before I broke my wrist, and they made a ton of difference, especially in my short game.
