My wife has decided to give this golf game a go.

 

I took her out to a golf course and gave her a SL 9 iron and taught her the Jim Venetos set up and she hit a few 30-40 m with a 25% swing. She was a hockey player in her youth. Unfortunately her skiing knee injury was aggravated by the pivot to the left, so we will try a  Shawn Clement set up next time.

 

I was thinking that if she persists, I would suggest a 4-5 hybrid for tee shots and a 7, 9 , PW, Putter bag of clubs. Not too much detail/ complexity at the start.


I can spell reasonably well, even if in American at times. I cannot type well , so please look for the key I intended to use within one key of the strange one I used.

Beginners should consider buying  a set of hollow bodied hybrids irons. I have been using a set of Cleveland HB Launcher irons lately and have found them to be very easy to hit well. In fact they resist slicing/ fade shots. 

 

Wilson Launch pads and Cobra T-rails are similar products.
