PostSubject: Want some advice on what to get next   Tue Jun 15, 2010 1:22 pm

Currently I got a driver, 4-p iron, s wedge.

I will need to get a putter definitely and with budget constraint.
The thing I am trying to figure out is what to buy for me to play a proper game.

Solution:

1. 3 wood and 3 rescue
2. 3 wood and 5 wood

My friend told me to try solution 2 first and rescue only after I get the above clubs and still have some gaps to fill. Also to get my strokes better with my woods and thus my driver. A rescue might just make me take the easy way out and long run my driver to suffer in terms of swings since the fairway woods feel are more like a driver and with more practice a better woods swing.

Alittle abt myself, I dun mind going thru tougher route but the part abt rescue vs woods comment is it true?

Bro, there's a thread here on hybrid vs woods. Do a search on it, read thru the opinions there ANC hopefully you can make some semblance of informed decision on which to adopt. Cool

ok, will go read that up. For my friend he bought the rescue and ended up his driver swing did suffer a little compared to when he use his woods only.

Will ask more when i have read more.

>> seebayho, both myself and my friend agree on that but he just suggest for me to go option 2 first and get my woods swing proper first. He said alot of ppl buy drivers but end up the swing are not consistent slicing all over the place and ended up fall to their hybrids. Long game they may end up playing very badly. A hybrid is confirm will buy just first to buy or later and good for new guys to train that or the painful woods.

Lol 1 month into the game and spent quite a bit already. Pocket alittle pain =x

It really depend..some really prefer FW than hybrid..but there are also some like me would prefer hybrid. I dun have any FW, and my hybrid can cover distance gap.

That is partially because my driving distance not far and hybrid is sufficient to cover distance gap between driver and iron.

Beside FW and hybrid, I think short game is important and personally i would prefer to invest a bit on wedges and good putter and focus more on practising short game.

this is just my personal opinion and preference..cheers

Dun restrain yourself to option 1 or 2... try out your kakis's clubs... you never know which you prefer until you try the clubs physically.

If you are only beginning to learn golf, I also suggest that you buy 1 club first (FW/ Hybrid)... and preferably the shorter ones. Once you get the hang of things.. then move on to get the longer clubs.

But if you ask me... I think Golf-Snowman made a good recommendation... invest in your wedges... you will find them so much more important and useful than the woods and hybrids...

Bro Daveaha... people only hit his woods max 2 times/ round of golf... 50% meaning one shot is "2 on for par 5" and the other is "top but still can roll far far for a short chip type" mah.... What a Face

the feeling of hitting a great 3 wood 200m+ off the deck, leaving you with a very short approach on a par 5 is one of golf's great feeling, more shiok that a great drive, more shiok than sinking a long putt, more shiok than chipping to 2-3 foot from 50 out.....its like a drug and once you hit it a few times you will be addicted. No telling what will happen if you 2 on a par 5...
