I scored a decent deal off eBay... my Christmas present to myself.

I expect to play like Tiger Woods but I know that in reality, I can barely do so.

I have high expectations but at the same time, I feel that golf is a game of fun and leisure.

Every time I have a rough game (and this is pretty common), I end up forgetting all about it when I sit down and tcss with good friends and good beer at the 19th. Even if I have a great game (still waiting for this), I know that the tcss will be the highlight of my day.

I appreciate the support and encouragement, but really... the beauty of golf was never really in the sport itself (to me anyway) but in the people I've met (and will continue to meet) and the beer and food we share after the game Smile

Just read this thread.

There's nothing wrong with your irons. They are built for high-mid cappers.

I can hand a total beginner an SGI and he will still whiff the ball.

As long as you put some quality practice into the game, they will serve u well.

I played with my buddy's TM 300s with shafts too long n grips too big last week in US and I did tons better than my last game of 2010. It shows that when u dun think of equipment too much and just focus on getting decent contact, your game will be alot better.

As for why I ho w equipment so much, thats just cos its my vice and I'm loving it. Nothing to do with trying to get a better game cos I've pretty much maxed out my potential.

Thanks, bro. I appreciate the feedback. I believe that practice is key (and along with it, coaching). I'm hoping to get some of that done this year. But at the same time, I feel that the equipment one uses plays an important role. I'm not suggesting that one can only play well with a select type of clubs, but certainly, the more forgiving clubs tend to aid the player.

From my perspective, I fear that I've maxed out my potential too. I've settled to being a mediocre player and have accepted that I will duff my shots, I will top the ball, I will play table-tennis with greenside bunkers, I will send balls into the jungle, water and other golfers and I will spend more time looking for my ball than hitting it.

That said, I also believe that if I'm going to go through that sort of "pain," I'd like to do so with clubs which are a little more forgiving so I can minimize the blunders. The MX-300s are great clubs but I feel that they are meant more for mid-handicappers than they are for high-handicappers. They are a good blend between blades and GIs, and will require some skill to master them.

I've picked up a set of MX-200s which I'll use in combination with the MX-300s. I'm not saying that my game will improve. What I am hoping for, however, is that I won't feel as frustrated after each game.

I may still take 5 shots to get to the green on a Par 4 but at least, the shots will be (hopefully) more on the fairway than in the rough.

if you still believe that you will top/duff your irons, it makes no sense to look for MX200s, cause the result between MX200 and MX300 would be the same if you duff/top. I really dont recommend any change. the MX300 are really nice irons by itself
