Brought my recently purchased Callaway Razr irons from Golf Bargains and took them to NSRCC executive for a try (my playing partney without handicap yet)...thinking my game would improve leaps and bounds ONLY because these are termed super game improvements...lol boy how wrong was that!  Sliced and top every single shot.  Clearly it's not santa the tools but my broken swing

Lorry also takes close to a year to get used to his nike clubs. You will be fine after getting used to them.

So many times we have gone thru this.. hoping to buy a magic wand to fix our swings n play great golf.... I have been telling my friends new to the game to stop buying, but keep going to the coaches and fitters... There's no short cut really.. Rather spend $500 on a new set, why not use that same amount of money to have at least 5 meaningful lessons with the coach...

Right on! As the saying goes, A Good Craftsman Never Blame His Tools. But sometimes the lure of new clubs promising improvements is difficult to resist for some.

I second the opinion of having proper golf instructions.
Once you get better at your swing, you should be able handle most clubs.
It may be a long and ego busting journey but nothing worthy comes easy.

Equipment might be an instant gratification, which sometimes leads to disappointment.
But proper skills stay with you for life.

Give the new clubs time.
The specs and feel might be different from what you are used to.
I am sure you'll dial in to them soon.

thanks all the bros for the advice.  I suppose it's practice,practice and practice...perhaps its also time to hook up with my Pro coach again after a 2 years of siesta.  Golf is one tough sport!!

Bro..

In all good intentions n kind wishes, please don't practice, before seeing your coaches n fitters.. don't waste time repeating the wrongs..

Don't serve your clubs, you shouldn't be compensating for your clubs. Get your clubs to fit your swing.
