rule #1: dont golf clubs just because they're a good deal.
go to golftown, and try every single iron designed for the beginner/intermediate (mid-high handicap) player. finding the right clubs for your game is a long process, and buying something just because could seriously affect your development.

as for the shaft to use on your irons, steel gives better feedback (vibration from miss-hit), but weighs more... typically, swinging a graphite shaft will get you 2-3 mph increase in swing speed which translates into upwards of 5 yards more distance... if distance is what you're looking for. since the steel shaft is heavier, it gives more of a feeling of control which will allow you to analyze your swing and contact. most people are using graphite for their drivers and fairway clubs and generally only low handicappers are using steel. DO YOUR RESEARCH and you'll end up being an addict to the game.



edit: btw... i shot an 82 at northlands this morning (with the SLOWEST pair EVER! 2:10 thru the first 9). 5 over on the front 9.

whats wrong with sportchek's golf club sets? They seem like decent clubs at good prices but i've heard from a lot of people that sportcheks clubs suck. Why's that? I was thinking of getting a wilson or dunlop set

they're cheaply made, little to no ingenuity goes into them and whens the last time you saw someone on the tour using wilson or dunlop? you don't have to play exactly what the pros play, but its a good indication of what works.

Paddy Harrington hits Wilsons! The Di7's are pretty decent clubs.

Anyway just a heads up for you golf junkies, there is a sample sale going on for the Canadian Distributers of Ogio and Cleveland (I think Cleveland just recently got a new distributer but anyway they should have some clubs there hopefully wedges..) and some clothing. Was looking to score a bag but dont have time to go until tm.

The sale is going on Today 12-6 and tm 12-5 at Rampion Enterprises. 6600 Fraserwood Place, Richmond BC.

If anyone goes, please list what kind of stuff they have.

shot a 96 at northlands.


couldn't get my short irons going until 14. chipping, putting (count 28) and zero penalties saved me from imminent disaster (100+).

Anybody played royalwood before ? Im going out there today hopefully that pans out pretty good.

Also gonna goto Hazelmere on wednesday, did anyone play it before they had the canadian tour even there ? Just wondering if it play 10x harder than it did before. I kinda hope they kept the same conditions I wouldn't mind trying to play a close to canadian tour calibre course.

royalwood golf and rv resort! hahahaha
are you playing with your grandpa?



hazelmere is awesome. there's a reason why they routinely have tour events there. i'm not sure if they keep the same conditions... it would be worth comparing.


played university last night with my girlfriend.... she kicked ass, much to my suprise.

www.golfdiscount.com

anyone buy from this site before? legit/authentics?

They have some killer deals, no shipping if u ship to the states. Even after travel, duties etc...you still save a good 25% compared to buying them locally.

Gonna upgrade my wedges, anyone run a 54/58 degree setup? I currently run 56/60 cleveland tour action wedges, they work great, but debating if i should switch it up or stay the same degrees on my new set.

Anyone switch setups and like/dislike the change? I dont plan to buy 3 wedges.

56 degree = 100+yards
60 degree =75+ yards
PW = 125-135 yards.
based on a full swing.

if you like the control and bounce you're getting from your current wedges, stick with them. the worst mistake i've ever seen someone make in switching gear is messing with their wedges.


i have cobra S9 48* & 52* then vokey spin milled 56*, 60* in my bag and rely on all of them heavily. with those wedges, i'm putting within 5-7 feet after almost every approach.


if you're planning on switching brands, you HAVE to try the rac TP from taylormade, its sweeeeet.

vokeys are world class. if you buy them, they'll be the last ones you ever buy... get them regripped every year and it's the best investment in a club you'll ever make.

both the vokey and the x tour are good choices. since you're in the price range and if you're not a sandman, consider the tp wedge from taylormade. its killer.

thx for the input. I'm gonna grab the vokeys "Spin milled". those things look nuts! not only do they have grooves like your usual clubs, the face of the club is all grooved also!

I've been through a bunch of wedges myself and I must say the best ones I've used thus far are theTaylormade Black RAC TP wedges.

I'm currently using the Callaway X Tours and I find that it eats up the face of the golf balls really badly. Always takes a nice chunk out the balls. Gets expensive after a while.

i'd play the TPs if i didnt already have the vokeys.


and yeah, i heard from an actual callaway rep that the wedges tear up the golf balls. interestingly enough, some people in the industry say that it was designed that way on purpose (roger cleveland of cleveland golf designed the wedge with input from "the stupid idiot")

a wedge totally helps alot when you are under 100yds. so much easier than trying to baby a pw in there.

i have a 54 and 58 deg titlest vokey oil can.

super awesome so far, they are about 3 years old. they spin pretty good for the amount i use them, but not as good as when i got them.

i've tried tp wedges and honestly dont like head shape and the way it sits down, but its all personal with the wedges. most of the main companies make awesome wedges anyways, you cant really go wrong just gotta pick one that you like the best.

Rupert Park is pretty cheap.. $11 if I remember correctly, but it's only a pitch and putt.
