  1. Thanks all - after all the comments I went for the boxed Macgregor set. I figure this will work for me for a few years and I can go from there - had a hit with them in the shop before buying them and they felt good.
  2. Thank you all for your comments - all of which are really useful. I will drop by my local golf shop (American Golf) and check out both the used section and the above mentioned boxed sets -and try to hit with as many clubs as possible before deciding. Just out of interest, of the three box sets I mentioned (Macgregor CG2000, Fazer CTR20 or Wilson Ultra XLS), has anyone heard of these (even just the brands) and have a recommendation?
  3. Hi all, I am relatively new to the game - starting playing in September 2018. I have been playing with a borrowed set of Mizuno MX 200 irons and have now had to give them back. Given my relatively low standard I am sure I wasn't getting anywhere near the full benefit from the clubs - a lot of thin and fat shots going on. I now need to get a set of my own clubs but am on a bit of a budget - maybe about £250 (yes I am in the UK). For this amount I can find new package sets of Macgregor CG2000, Fazer CTR20 or Wilson Ultra XLS (although the later is £50 more than I was hoping to spend). Other than Wilson, I haven't heard of any of these brands so just wondering if I should be looking elsewhere like second hand - although I don't know much about clubs so not sure I am best placed to buy second hand. I would plan to make use of these for maybe 3/5 years and then upgrade. Any thoughts/advice appreciated. Thanks.
  4. Thank you all for your comments. I will try and get someone to video my swing and then set up a 'My Swing Thread'
  5. Hi All, I have recently started playing the game (September 2018) and am fairly obsessed with it - I have been following these forums since then but have only now decided to post. I have been playing on my local par 3 course (1 attempt at the larger course) and need a lot of help with my iron shots. I would say that I am probably happy with 1 or 2 out 9 tee shots. It was particularly bad this weekend and one of my playing partners (an experienced golfer) suggested I tee the ball up very high just to be able to get under the ball. This approach seems completely opposite to everything I have read about hitting down on my irons etc and I feel it will be adverse to my longer term development and hinder my when I move to the bigger course and am trying to hit iron shots from the fairway (more likely the rough). I watch YouTube videos and it looks so simple but I am really struggle to replicate it. I think my back swing works most of the time now that I have worked on the wrist hinge but I don't seem to be able to get any consistency on the down swing (the most important part). I really enjoy the game and the challenge but fear that carrying on down this route will just push my away. I am assuming the obvious answer here is take a lesson and then practice on the range rather than going out ont he course... Thanks.
