  1. Hi everyone, I would regard myself as a beginner in that I have hit a lot of balls on the range (competently) but have only really played a dozen or so rounds of golf. I wanted to upgrade my extremely basic set of irons and wanted advice between two sets for someone of my level. The choice is between a set of Adam’s XTD clubs (2014, black metal, non-tour) or a set of Callaway Big Bertha (2008, Red coloured heads). Any advice would be Really appreciated please. Thanks
  2. I've been Playing Golf for: 2 months (after 10 years away) My current handicap index or average score is: 84 My typical ball flight is: Fade/Slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Driver Slice/Short Game Chunks Looking for any and all advice on my swings, been working on my into out swing and turning my hands over. I definitely have something going wrong with my driver swing, been trying for 2 weeks to get ride of a nasty slice and I can't seem to make any progress. Thanks in advance! Videos:
  3. I've golfed since I was a kid but always used someone elses clubs... I'm not 25 Active Duty military and want to golf this summer but don't have the $1000+ to get a nice full set. So I'm looking at used options or all in one sets. Anyone have suggestions on good sets or places to look for used ones? I am currently in Alaska so local places are far and few. I am about 5'10" 180lbs (idk if this helps). My main concern with a complete set is all I really need to last/be good for me is the irons as I know down the road I'll end up getting more woods first. Thanks in advance!
  4. Any advice is appreciated. My goal is to get more consistent good contact shots. Most time I end up thinning the ball or hitting it fat. Thank you! I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year My current handicap index or average score is: N/A My typical ball flight is: N/A The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: fat and thin shots Videos:
  5. I am a high handicapper shooting in the mid 90’s and have been using a set of Cleveland 588 cb irons for about 6 years(7-pw project-x stiff shafts). I have been a very casual player but recently decided I wanted to get serious about golf. My question is should I invest in a set of used “game improvement irons” ? I feel like my current irons are unforgiving although it may be my lack of practice and poor swing. Would the benefit be worth changing to something like the TaylorMade m2’s or similar clubs? Or should I just invest the money on lessons and learn to use my Cleveland 588 cb irons?

  8. I normally hit all my shots straight. I would like to be able to hit a draw when I want to hit it but so far no luck. I practice in a field next to my house and with foam golf balls I can hit a big high draw. I had not played in thirty years but after my left knee replacement my nephew talked me into playing again and I'm hooked. Any help y'all can give will be appreciated. I also finish high like in the video. Thank you in advance. I normally shot 80-86. I've been Playing Golf for: 1 year after being away for 30 years. My current handicap index or average score is: 11.5 My typical ball f
  9. Hello guys, I'm starting to play golf again after six years of not swinging a club. Lessons with a pro is something I will be looking into but, in the meantime, wondered if I could ask for some thoughts from this forum? Below is an embedded video of my swing. It's the first time I've been to the driving range in a very long time... I think the basics are still there but I've lost all knowledge of how to self-analyse so any help would be greatly appreciated! I'm 29, around 90kg and used to play off 12 (although, as I said, that was some years ago now). I hit around 250 y

  12. Hi all, Was hoping I could get some advice/thoughts. Been playing almost 2 years (17 handicap).. I always seem to hit a wall though with all irons and go through a couple months of consistent shanks / mis hits. (Without exaggerating its like I am a beginner again) Going by the video i feel the error comes during my backswing - head and body come forward causing a shank. Any other tips/thoughts welcome! Why does this happen and how can I eliminate this and return to consistent golf!? Thanks Kor I've been Playing Golf for:

  14. So for some back story I had played a little golf here and there up until januaty 2016, it was my junior years golf season start and I wanted to be good. I was a 100s golfer in 2015 and these were my 2016 results thus far 101, 98, 95, 93, 93, 90, 87, 91, 85 each new score is one week later and new tournament. I have started practicing everyday and now work at a golf course and have improved vastly (partly thanks to my swing coach Mark Gray I highly recommend his website www.theprozone.net) as of today my handicap calculated from April 25th to may 22nd is - 7.4, today I played 9 holes and was o

    I would like to purchase a Nike pro combo or an equivalent in another brand! Does anyone have any advice please! I am a 15-20 handicapper! Or should I dare to go for blades!
  16. You meet someone at a party and they mention they are taking up the game of golf. They tried doing some research on the golf swing but found all the conflicting information too confusing. They ask you for your best "tip" or the one thing you know now that you wish you knew when you started playing golf. What do you tell them?
