  1. As i'm still beginner I loose a lot off balls . I am testing some balls now to see what I like most. As i'm handicap 41 I don't need ProV1(x) I am testing a few brands in the range of US 35 for 2 dozen. Wilson DX2, Callway Supersoft, Pinnacle Soft (cheaper), Titleist Trusoft and Srixon Supersoft. At this moment I loose about 2 dozen a month with playing 4 times a week. So that's US 300 I guess not playing that much in the winter.
  2. I watched the movie . chunkie .. cheap ... Yes they are chunkie and cheap but so am I I choose the clubs because i didn't know if I would like the game. I could just rent it everytime I play, but in 5 rentals I could almost buy these ... If I play a year with these it's not a waste of money ..... I payed 375 US Dollar for the set, a trolly, balls and a glove.
  3. Yeah they change it every few years I think. This is the latest set. I love the feel off it. You can feel perfect if you hit it good or bad. But if you don't hit the sweetspot the balls still go forward, not so far. With a i7 i hit around 130 yards if I hit it right, 100 yards if it's not perfect and everything in between . Not perfect but also not 30 yards to left or right. I played with a TM iron and they went all over the place from a hook left to 40 yards front . Much harder for me to hit the balls. Special hard balls you feel in you arms/hands so I use soft balls like wilson dx2, callway supersoft. Putter I replaced after my first lesson in putting. The ball does not bounce from the putter .. to make long puts you really have to hit the ball. I now have an odessy white hot 2.0 rosie putter now. Driver/wood/hybride I can't tell you about. I don't use them yet. i hit a few driver balls but they are all over the place and they don't sound so hard as some other drivers i hear on the DR
  4. My 2 cents int the mater as a new golfer ... First about ready golf. Ik played with a lady who explained to me that we play ready golf, and then at the tee she was ready but I was still writing my scores and putting on my glove and she waited for me ???? Then with putting the one furthest away really had to put first ...... how about that as ready play ? Carts is not a problem here ... you can only use a cart if you are disabled. Healthy people just walk. But for the 'begiing skill level players' as me (41 now). I normal play on par3 courses and the same problems happen there. Old guys looking for their ball 5 min. Hitting a bal and then on their way up to their ball look for other lost balls ....... But I do like to play on the main course. EVen if I don't play with a driver/wood/hybride .... But on par3 courses I can do a 'full' swing only on the last hole as it's 120y. But according to Lee Trevino I first have to play driving range for a year?? That's stupid. I play the main course quicker then many other players. They hit further then me, but still I can make my way around. The first time I played I played with no reservations 80 min after me, but in the end I had to wait for the pair in fron of me. BTW: It took me 51 strokes for a 9 hole course (lady tees). I think handicap should be a better way to see if anyone can play the main course, although that's not everything to .... On my home course there are no (back tees, white or whatever colours are used in US). Only Male, Female en Junior tees. You have to be handicap 24 for male tees, 36 female tees, 54 junior tees. But it is no problem is it's not busy to play from other tees. It's not a problem to play slow, but let people pass if you do.
  5. Thx everyone. Reading around and having fun ..... Trying to understand how the forum works with read all forum, check new posts etc, but i'll find an easy way.
  6. The worst one I used are spalding and TopFlite. The spalding where hard, and after 2/3 holes the outside was a mess. I do like the new pinnacle. Especial the Soft. The have a great feel like the Wilson dx2 or Callaway super soft. I use the pinnacle because they are cheap and I still lose a lot of balls
  7. Hello. I am not sure if there are many members from outside the US, but I am. (If I make stupid language mistakes please let me know). I am 49 and just started playing golf last year. I did in introduction day and really liked it. Later that year I started to get my handicap (not sure how it works in the US). In oct. 2017 I made it and got my Handicap 54. Played a few practice rounds on par3 courses. In april this year I took a membership on a course close to home. I have lessons every 14 days. I do this because I want to practice in between the lessons. As I need to do one thing at the time and not give me 5 new things because then I get confused. The Pro I had my first lesson told me so many things and after every stroke I got lost and had no idea what to do. So I found a new Pro that fits me much better. She gives me one, or sometimes 2 things in my swing every lesson and from there we can work on. I already improved my handicap to 41. I play/practise atleast 3 times a week after work now it stays longer light to play. Most days when I play I practice chip shots. Different clubs, different lenght, more or less high grass etc. And some putting exercises. Then I play mostly 9 or 18 holes with 2 balls. I do have a problem ... I can't hit with a Driver . It goes all over the place. But with my iron 6 I can hit around 150 yards so for now only with irons and wedges. I will have driver lessons but only gonna use it when I can hit with them. Equipment I use ....... I bought a beginnerset. Wilson X31 (2017 model). It has all I need. I bought 2 wilson wedges with them. 60-10 and 52-08. I don't know what more to tell you . Hope things are not to different .... and if so, in the future all will be changed and everything will be the same from US to Europe. EDIT: I forgot to mention I replaced my putter last month. The standard one I had to HIT the ball instead of swing the club and let it go. Distance control is much better now with the Odyssey White Hot Pro 2.0 Rossie putter. And I added a long thick grip on it.
