    Golf Ball ...Help

    Was at the PGA store yesterday and it seems like 98% of what they have in balls are "Soft". Did not see any labeled otherwise, and trying to get someone to help seemed like it was an inconvenience to them so no joy.
  2. Speaking of pockets, I don't want to carry carry things I don't need around in my bag so how many pockets seems to be the sweat spot?

    Man Arrested After Biting Off Finger Of Fellow Golfer

    And being new to golf I thought this was a non-contact sport.....😊
  5. So I am looking to pick up my first bag and I know I want a stand bag, but can't figure out if a 5 way or a 14 way bag is better. I know some will say its preference, but I am looking for feedback from those who have one or the other and why they went with that bag. I have narrowed it down to either a Ping or Titleist bag.

    Golf Ball ...Help

    Thanks for the info, I will head over to Target and pick up 2 packs of balls and start there.
  7. So this may be a silly question, but I need help with which golf balls to buy. I am new to golf and have only had a few lessons but want to go out and play. I was at the PGA store by me and they had so many choices of golf balls to pick from. Which golf balls should I be looking to pick up and Why ?

    Im new to golf and just picked up my first wedge, a new Cleveland 588 RTX 2.0 CB Wedge on sale for $69 at my local shop, seemed to be a fare price.

    1st Set of Irons

    Whats the differences between Tailormade M1-M4 Drivers ? Local PGA Super store by me has several of these preowned from $140-$300.

    This is a little off the stated topic, but what Drivers in 10.5* should I be looking at. Im ok with a pre owned driver as long as it will benefit a new player.

    I have not played any course yet, I am brand new to golf. I have played for fun at a few fundraiser games while I was with the FDNY, but thats about it. I will definitely look into it as a course to play near me, many have said try Bethpage but I here it gets very crowded.

    Ok, so after my first lesson and 2 hrs of hitting different irons I think I may have found how this can be addictive. My swing speed was lower then I thought it would be and the grip was a little un-natural. There seems like the 3 basics is where I will focus on for now. Have another lesson next week and we will see how it goes.
