Alright I am new here, but have been lurking for a few week and just want to say I love the community here.
I am 22 years old and have been playing golf since I was much younger. I played competitively in high school, but didn't have much time to play during college. I have now entered the real world and have a full time job, and have found I am getting serious into golf again. Some friends of mine and I have been playing every weekend since the end of the summer and I have been having a blast.
My irons are my fathers old Titleist DCI-B, which are well over ten years old, but have served me quite well. I love these clubs, but I think I really need an upgrade as they are quite beat up.
Just some info about my game: I am a decent golfer (don't have a handicap), but I shoot in the mid 80s to mid 90s. I hit my pitching wedge 150-160yds, and I don't play any fairway woods really as I love my long irons. I think my 4 iron is probably my best (and favorite) club in the bag. I find the biggest problem with my game is consistency, which may just stem from not playing/practicing much in recent years. However I am looking to change that.
Now I need to know what I should be looking for when choosing irons, and what is good out there. I was thinking of sticking with titleist as I have loved my DCIs. I guess I kind of have a little brand loyalty thing going there, but I am going to look at other clubs as well. So any suggestions for clubs out there.
Also I am looking for a new driver as I do not currently have one to call my own at the present time. I am hitting long irons off the tee, because I just have not been able to hit the driver recently. When I was in high school I used to play an older Taylor Made Burner Driver that I could hit 320+ yards straight. It was great, but I have since lost that ability along with my confidence off the tee with a wood. Hence why I have been playing long irons off the tee. It doesn't hurt me too much as with a 4 iron off the tee and can get the ball around 240yds, but I miss the confidence and extra distance of a driver.
I have been looking heavily at the Callaway FT-i, because I hear that it is quite forgiving and easy to hit. Hopefully I can demo it this weekend, and give it a try. DO you think this is a good choice for someone looking to gain back their confidence on the tee.
Sorry for the long post, but I have been lurking here wanting to post and get some good information from you guys here. So if anyone has any help for me I would greatly appreciate it.
