After 19 years with the same set of irons, it's time (boy is it ever!) for me to invest in some new golf equipment.
I am in no hurry. My dad, who follows golf club technology pretty closely, told me to take up to a year. I just might.
Now that I've joined a club and am starting to play semi-regularly again, getting new sticks definitely makes sense. I already bought some new golf shoes for my birthday. My pair of Nikes had been around since the early 90s. I know. That's pathetic.
Some of you are quite expert in this area, so please chime in on equipment preferences and why.
I'm a tall guy (6'4") with short arms, so I've always played with irons that are an inch over. I'll probably get fitted instead of buying off the shelf. As far as brand and club style, I'm a blank slate.
I'm a decent golfer, shooting in the high 70s and low 80s most of the time. I played numbers two and three on my high school and community college golf teams. I sure wouldn't mind getting my game back. For me, that would be a single-digit handicap in the 5-7 range. (I probably play to about a 10 now.) Physically, I'm in pretty good shape. No big limitations.
If you have any suggestions or thoughts, please comment or feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
