    That comes from the behind-the-scenes peek from the famous Time interview with Tiger Woods: http://scoregolf.com/blog/lorne-rubenstein/the-goods-on-woods/ . Tiger, it turns out, is wrong. The golf swing is too fast. Even if you could instantly form a thought and direct your muscles to do something, it quite literally takes too long for the nerve impulse to travel from your brain to your muscles for it to do anything past about A5. That's right: if your brain hasn't told your muscles to do something by A5 (or when your lead arm is parallel to the ground on the downswing), it ain't even gonna begin happening prior to impact. Several biomechanists and neurologists agree.

    • I agree.  I am using an Alta CB 55 (SR) and get excellent loft.  The. soft regular may be too flexible for you; go back to your fitter and tell them they got it wrong.  It does happen  
    • I started out with a bag of hand me downs, mostly MacGregor. I played them for almost 6 years, only changed my putter.   In 1975, I finally got my first set of new clubs.  I settled on on set from Wilson. I am very glad I got "basic" golf down before I bought them.  Not a lot of options from most brands. Blades only, steel shafts and not much on the basic market of items such as the 30 options I choose from for new grips.  Price was average for the time ($275.00). If I were new to golf today, I would go try out some clubs.  Then, I would do my best to find a most similar set on many of the sites that deal in used cubs. A phone class my even get you some good advice.
    • Never had a problem in ANY of my dealings with them  
    • I started with a set of Spalding clubs, full set from K-Mart for a few hundred dollars years and years ago, (couldn't afford anything else with family and a low salary at the time). I look at them now and wonder how I ever hit them but they got me hooked on the game. As my salary increased I was able to save up and buy better clubs. Now a days there are tons of 2nd hand clubs available, just look on Ebay. There probably were 2nd hand clubs available when I started but who knew. I agree with most above that you don't need the expensive clubs to start, hell you may not need them going forward either.  Talk to your local Pro Shop, they probably have a set for you or can get you hooked up with someone who does. I for example have probably three sets of clubs in my garage, (not including the Spaldings), that I would gladly part with just to clean my garage out. Just wish I knew someone who could put them to good use. I have 11 putters for example, who needs 11 putters!!
    • I played 3 rounds last week.  The only stroke that stands out is an approach that I hit to 20’ from 160 yards and the middle of a deep divot.    If that were my last round of the year, it would be a shame not to be able to smile at the memory for the entire off season because I had kicked it out of that divot.  Just sayin’...
