this sounds familiar. i used to play inthe mid 80s during my highschool years when i would play with my father all the time. My father started me on golf when i was 9 years old. after 10 years of not touching the clubs i'm back in it. i bought maxfli clubs, to begin my journey back into the black abyss, last year. $250 for the whole iron set. i thought was good deal and could help me get back into the game. my scores are nowhere near it used to be. Now, i play in the 100s constantly. i can get 2~3 pars in a row.. then comes 3~4 triples. So i've decided that since i cannot compete with my skills, i need better technology. i just bought a set of Mizuno MX-950. I hope they will help me improve my score.
