I’m new here, only just found MGS but really like the community feel.
I’ve been playing golf on and off for probably 15 years, but never really taken it too seriously or looked to improve my game. I’ve got a fairly consistent swing and can get around a course, but I make the usual rookie mistakes and my scores suffer as a result.
I’m now really starting to take golf seriously and am playing a lot more. I’ve had the same Golden Bear clubs all this time and have decided that it’s time for an upgrade to clubs that will help with my progression.
I went for a custom fitting yesterday, and did loads of research beforehand so I went in with some idea of what I was looking for. I was really keen on the Wilson D7 irons (cast) as they have loads of positive reviews and the forgiveness that I’ll probably need whilst I’m improving.
Long story short, the fitter did all the workings, watched my swing etc etc and suggested that I go for the Wilson D7 forged irons. They felt really good and I was hitting them pretty well. The fitter said these irons would last longer for me as they have the forgiveness I need now and I will be able to shape shots in the future once I get to that stage, whereas with the cast D7s I would probably have to upgrade to a new set earlier. I’ve never paid much attention to handicaps but the fitter reckoned I’d be around a 20. The driving range and the course are two different beasts though!
My question is; are these irons too much for me? This is a lot of money and I want to make the right choice. I don’t want to end up with a set of irons that will frustrate me and put me off playing because they are suited to better players. Are these mostly as forgiving as the cast D7s?
The other thing that is slightly concerning is the lack of reviews, and barely a mention of the forged D7s on MGS. Why is that? Because they’re newer?
Sorry for the rambling, I look forward to your responses and getting more involved on here.
