upgrade golf clubs ??
« on: January 12, 2021, 05:37:57 AM »
OK, I am a mediocre player but, am thinking of upgrading my golf clubs. I am typically 15-20 handicap player and am a recreational player, not a die hard. Still, I would like to improve my game since my sons are starting to pound me on the course!    LOL
Also, I have just retired 4 months ago so, I want to get back into golf again.

Anyway, I have been using a basic entry-level set of Tommy Armour clubs, I got from Dick's Sports years ago.  OK , not great.
I also have started taking a few lessons.

So, I am looking for good suggestions on a set of irons. I am looking used and budget is $400 or so max.

I am 5'-11", 175lb, and 65yo ... not a heavy hitter.

I know this is not very Moustacheing but, it's a great way for me to spend time with my sons.

Thx

Buy used name brand set and get the lies bent to your liking. I'm a PING guy but plenty of good options.

Just get something with the right flex (hint: you're not going to get stronger at age 65) and length. A forgiving face is also a good idea, don't go out and buy blades with a pea-sized sweet spot.

Used irons are dirt cheap. You can get a full brand name set for $200-300 that is just a good cleaning away from looking brand new. Try them out, if they feel right, buy them.
