I’m about a 18 handicap, consistently shoot in the mid to low 90s, and I’m on the path to breaking 90. My question is, how do I know when equipment will be a game changer versus getting a lesson?
I’ve got a bag of mostly hand me down clubs and I’ve started the (slow) process of upgrading my bag. It’s pretty easy for me to get caught up in what an optimal set-up would be, but I also realize my game probably isn’t good enough to benefit from nitpicking the bounce and grind of my wedges, or the loft angle of my driver.
Sar far, the new wedges I added to my bag have made the biggest impact, but on the flip side, I barely hit my newish 3W. That’s partially because I haven’t practiced with it enough but also because I only need it once or twice a round. It almost feels like a waste of money / opportunity.
The next two things I want to upgrade are my driver and my irons. However, I have conflicting ideas about lowering my scores via lessons or new equipment.
My current bag is:
Calloway Rogue 3W (recent purchase)
TaylorMade Rescue 3 Hybrid
Calloway X-20s (4i - PW)
Titleist Vokey SM6 Wedges (54 & 58) (recent purchase)
Scotty Cameron Studio Design 1.5
