I wouldn't spend $15:00 on those clubs you have chosen.
They are all junk.

Golf guy33 is a club fitter who looks after me and quite a few of us vic's.
He knows his stuff.

GPJ long also works in the golf industry & knows his stuff too.

Both crackin blokes (for Aussies)

And Just so you know.
Canadian mick is a yank who wants to be Canadian.
Weetie is a self taught golfer who is a wreck
Iron mick has 7 kids and his handicap reflects that.
Hack is trying to get to single figures with out actually playing in comps??
Me, I'm short and just say it how it is.

 

Classic.   :D

SMB7 to further assist you with useful information we should know

1) your age bracket

2) your physical size ( height /weight) and whether you are strong build or not.

3) location ( to advise who you are near for lessons/ someone on here might have the clubs to suit you)

 

As to what clubs you need to start off, my advice is

 

3 wood around 15-16 degree loft &/or a 5 wood

a Hybrid about 22-24 degree loft 

6 iron, 7 , 8, 9 , pitching wedge and a 55 degree sand wedge.

 

Most learner can't hit a driver for nuts ( me included) and score better off the tee with a 3 or 5 wood. I am on my third driver and still only bring it out of the bag when the reward is greater than the risk of missing the fairway.

 

As I improved I went back to try driver #1 ( a Probilt  set from Drummond Golf when I was in your shoes 2 years ago) and I was hitting it 200m with a draw shape shot. When I started 2 years ago at age 63, I could only manage spectacular slice or an impressive push fade shot with it. I have collected a few second hand clubs to try since I started. Some I liked and added to my bag and others I have resold when they were not producing any better results for me than the Pro Bilts.

 

My first set is about to be relegated to the shed as visitors/ son-in-laws clubs. I picked up a set of Cobra irons via this website to add to the Cobra driver/3 wood/hybrids I have bought slowly over the last two years. Perhaps you could start a thread on here " wanted to buy second hand club set ; budget $500". There are sure to be others who have a spare set in their garage. Make sure you try the clubs before you buy and be prepared to move them on in a few years as you improve your skill set.

Not sure smb7 is interested in the feedback... Hasn't been active on here since the day after his OP.

Didn't get the feedback he wanted?

Wonder what clubs he ended up buying?
