So....... history, then question..... bear with me?
Finally back in golf after taking most of my 20’s off. But, while in high school, I had slowly built a decent titelist set as I saved up money. After playing 3-4 rounds a week as part of my high school golf team, I graduated, all my “golfing friends” moved away and I was stranded with no one to golf with. Fast track to this summer, life settled down, and promotions at work allowed me to golf more. Family and friends helped me build a set up again, mostly hand me downs, and I’m back up to a round a week at the minimum.
Went for a Titelist Thursday fitting at Ravenwood GC with Sean Lalley and got fitted for the 917D2 and AP3’s. Sense I have purchased myself a 917D and a 917F (found one on a clearance rack after the TS’s came out, and after hitting it I could say no to a $100 fairway wood).
My question is........ well probably one you are all sick of, but here we go.
My miss with the iron is the fat, chunky, “stood up” “tried to kill it” shot. However when I’m not hitting it fat, I generally make good, solid contact, and stay on target (maybe a touch left/touch right, but I’m not usually in the trees with my irons). While I acknowledge the AP3’s are great clubs that feel wonderful. I can’t help it when I walk past the CB’s. I have to pick them up, address the ball, and fall in love all over again with everything that is CB. Am I crazy to even be considering them? Should I just suck it up and get some AP3’s (I know, I know, waaaaa me).
Do you think you can grow into irons? My irons in high school were the 755’s and I loved them, but again that was many many rounds per month, plus a coach, my game is much different now.
Still here? Thanks for any input!
