    What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    3 month update: in the last month I have carded my 3 lowest rounds (79,79,77) and I have to credit the club fitting and lesson, although I have lost distance I haven't hit a ball out of bounce in a while, which used to be my downfall on 1-3 drives a round. working on my pre shot routine is where I am now, when I set myself up correctly I have a way higher chance of success but I catch myself rushing shots sometimes and missing my targets. also getting a distance from every shot off the green is becoming critical for consistency. average is hovering a stroke above my goal , so I'm right where I want to be

    What are Your 2018 Golf Goals?

    goals for 2018. continue to improve on my bad shots, I have been scoring in the 80s for awhile but it is devastating to score a +5 followed by a +3 and end up with a 85. solution: had my first lesson and basically found out everything I thought was right about my swing wasn't. now my swing is a lot more compact and consistent but it has been a major adjustment and most times doesn't feel right so it is a process, after starting out with a few rounds in the 90s, my last few rounds have been around my handicap and im excited to see how low I can score. overall goal: get the handicap to single digits

    My Swing (adi2008)

    I think going to the range and getting a consistent setup ( feet, shoulder, club address, distance to the ball) and hitting a few buckets will give you the right answer. the perfect scenario is hitting a straight ball however for me , I have a slight draw and I learned to just play it , it isn't much so with shorter irons its almost straight but with longer irons I aim a few yards right of my target. for me alignment dictates what I'm going to hit but my shoulders play a big role, sometimes it feels like I'm parallel when in reality my shoulders are open resulting in a hook or pull draw. hope this helps

    My Swing (adi2008)

    as I started playing most my drives were draws or hooks, I opened the face a little more and worked on making sure my shoulders were parallel with my feet and started hitting them a lot straighter. for me my alignment and club face at address were the culprit of that

    Players irons vs game improvement irons

    thanks for the input smiterofpv1x , I am at a weird stage as I fell I have gotten to a point where I am striking the ball well with the wrong equipment, at first it didn't matter too much that they weren't fit for me as I wasn't making consistent contact. I totally agree about feeling comfortable and confident, if I am not confident you can kiss my ball goodbye. I have to wait til Saturday before I get my hands on them again, since I dropped them off to be bent and get them re-gripped, but I am itching to see how I do on the course and to be honest the rogue pros are very forgiving , I hit a few on the toe that didn't lose any distance just pushed it to the right, I went in thinking the x forged were for me and they are probably the better iron but I was way more consistent with the rogue pro so it was an easy choice. thanks again

    Players irons vs game improvement irons

    So after 4 days of trying out clubs and narrowing it down to the P770 , rogue pro and x- forged. The rogue pro came out on top for me, it was the most consistent for me in yardage and accuracy and although its a pro club I believe its more in line with a players iron and is very forgiving. The pga pro at Edwin Watts was amazing as well, being patient with me as I continued to try out mostly the same clubs the last fews days. now to get my golfpride align grips on and see what I can do at the course!
  8. I’m in the same position, I have a high loft(13.5) with a weak flex on my driver and have been using an oversized iron, I feel you adjust your swing but once I hit a few well it’s back to my normal swing speed which hurts my drive with the weaker flex. After switching to a extra stiff flex and a lower loft(9) ,my driving has been much more predictable, working on irons now but have hit a few I really like( x forged, p770s and rogue pro). I want to hurry and make a choice but I know these clubs will be in my bag for years to come. Good luck

    Players irons vs game improvement irons

    x forged, sorry I wasn't specific, , I'm not sure what all he had me swing but the x forged is what he recommended, now that I researched I found they were a player iron and not game improvement. I have very little experience in equipment as I started very late in life and first learned the game through video games. so I was just wondering what others experience was in making that transition. thanks you know I'm from texas since I want to use shoot for everything. yes I get a lot of slack for my irons and I got even more slack for the taylor made slider driver I had before the switch to the rogue, since it was 13.5 loft with a regular flex, it was going higher than my piching wedge
  10. Hello all, I'm your average golfer who didn't start playing until my 20's and had no background of it, however I'm pretty athletic and have good to great hand -eye coordination. I've been playing nike mach speeds irons for the last 6 years or so and never had an issue with the equipment. now this past year I have been playing much more and went from shooting in the 100s to shooting mid to low 80s. the people I play with laugh at the idea that I shoot with irons off the shelf and have never been fitted, so I finally get fitted and find out all my woods are the wrong flex for my swing speed and the loft is too high for my swing plane. he recommends me the 10.5 rogue with a accra shaft which I love but for the irons he suggested I get the forged callaway player irons. my worry is that I am getting ahead of myself ,even though I hit them well in the simulator. I just started really enjoying the game and would hate to struggle but would love to hear if anyone else has been at that crossroad and what were your experiences.
