Golfing Newbie

10 posts in this topic

Well me and my wife golfed for the first time this year and I think my wife finally found something that she likes to do and something we both can do together. (She doesnt hunt or fish) My question is what is a good starter set of golf clubs for my wife? I am not looking to spend a ton as we both are just starting. Thanks for any info!

jt24, she picked a kinda spendy sport. It is a great game. I would go to a Golf Galaxie and they would have beginer sets. Depending on how into it she will be, getting fitted for clubs is a choice and not that more expensive. She can hit clubs at these stores to get a feel for what feels good to her. There is a used section also. They do not have to be the same brand for each club. I have a mixed variety along with some custom made clubs.

Start out simple with a 3-5-7-9 irons and a sand wedge or pitching wedge. A driver and a 3 wood. Don't forget the putter.

For balls, keep it simple, and inexpensive, as you may go through a few starting out and for that matter all the time,

depending on what course your playing.

Another way to go would be getting her a couple of used hy-brids, say 23 and 26 degrees for hitting on the fairway, much easier to hit than irons. a 7 iron to use when she's close to the green and for all chipping. Using a 7 or 8 iron to chip is much easier than hitting a wedge and the objective at her skill level is to get the ball on the green. A Sand wedge, 3 wood and putter.

Good luck and you'll need the patience of a Saint. grin

Are there any course's in Redwood Falls area? I was there this past Saturday and that could be my new favorite area of the State absolutely gorgeous. We hunted Pheasants near the River Bottoms and I was in awe how cool it was. Talk about a Deer, Pheasant, Turkey Hunters Paradise.

I would say get a starter set from from Walmart, Sports Authority, or D i c k s Sporting Good or something similar.

Good Luck!

Any place that sells golf clubs should have a starter set. Its pretty common. They have changed through the years, but most will have a few woods/hybrids, a putter, and then usually the odd number irons. Just buy inexpensive balls at this point, for your swing level, there is no advantage in using more expensive balls. Plus, as mentioned above, you probably will go through quite a few of them at first.

Its a fun, relaxing sport that you can play for a long time. A great way to get outside when the weather is nice.

Good Luck!

Pier,

MORTON! The casino has one of the nicest courses you will play outside the famous big money and resort courses in this state. There is also an older course right in Redwood along the river.

get some lessons, seperately, I started last summer and the best thing I did was take lessons. My game is still a mess, but I did pick up a lot of things during the lessons that gave me a sort of short game. It has saved me a lot of strokes

    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture.
