At 64 and now almost retired I took up golf as a hobby about 2 years ago. I have played hockey in the past so I can hit a ball OK-ish.
I bought some clubs from Drummond golf ( a set of Powerbilt) which have worked well enough, but I changed to Cobra F7 Driver, F7 3 wood and 4-5 Hybrid. I also picked up a Callaway utility 3 iron and a 52 gap wedge and 60 gap wedge.
I struggled with the short irons aggravating my back so I had them all lengthened to 9 iron length with lie angle modified back to standard. I struggle less with them, but still thin the ball a few times per game. Some of this could be inadequate bounce on the gap and lob wedge for my swing maybe.
My consistency is my biggest problem. I have difficulty hitting fairways with Driver unless I fade the shot. Direction of 3 wood is erratic, but improving. Hybrids ( Powerbilt 2/3 loft) Cobra 4/5 are working well, irons are OK with distance if I strike it adequately, but deviation laterally is an issue.
I was thinking that a set of one length Cobras ( 6 - GW) might help me with accuracy. I like the idea but want to try before I buy. Is there a place in either Victoria or S.A. ( I live on the border) that hires Cobra one length out for on course testing?
It is pretty obvious that I need to get some lessons, but tyranny of distance has made YouTube/internet lessons a more viable option. My handicap is 22 and my score fluctuates from 86 to 102.
