SCU, OldBogey, 2Putts, cerebr_al, SteveH115 and Robroy22, appreciate the comments and the help.

 

I'll do the lot and nut this out. My irons are the best part of my game (driving okay, putting terrible), so a good set will only enhance that. Last week I had an 84 with 41 putts which is horrid so there's plenty to work on but a good set of irons that fit me will do wonders as I'm 6'4" and using standard small irons/hunched over.

 

I'm sure going from no lessons and playing once a month to lessons and playing a couple of times a week (which I plan to do from now on), I'll get my handicap right down so it's only worth to do the lot. Demo nights, testing clubs and I think I'll do see Jon at TGP as he's closer to me and get him to fit all clubs., especially taking a look at the putter.

 

Thanks again.

 

If you decide you want to go with Titleist, make sure you book into the Titleist Regional Fitting Centre which is next door to Spring Valley. They have every different head and shaft combination you could think of and Cory the fitter is just fantastic. A great experience. You will need to book in several weeks/months in advance and it does cost $75 but it is well worth it.

Once you decide on a club, you should probably try throwing it as well.  Want to make sure that the club launches well and is well suited to your throwing action.

Inside golf magazine, which you can pick up free from most clubs and driving ranges, usually has a list of demo days in it.

When selecting new clubs the key thing is

not so much the brand name stamped on the head of club (most modern OEM brands are good)

 

but what is important is

 

your set make up

how many woods do you have, and what are they  3w 5w 7w (no driver)

 

Hybrids ? what lofts

 

irons 3I-PW or 5 -pw

 

wedges (lofts and bounce angle)

 

This is where going having a good coach, who knows you game can help you make right decisions.

 

if dont have a good coach then go and see an independant club fitter like TGP who will be able to help you select right clubs for your game,

as opposed from buying from a golf store where salesman (or saleswoman) will advise you on the clubs they want to sell you.

 

also it doesnt matter if you have different brands throughout your set. (look in bags of any ISG players)

CB, why suggest that he shouldn't have a driver?  From what he said earlier, his handicap would be mid teens, even with poor putting.

 

Of course he needs a driver.

Depends how serious you are and your budget. If serious seek out a great fitter who has trackman
