Hello everyone I hope this is in the correct sub-forum.

Little about myself I'm a former high school player, like many, who used to be a 6 handicap.  I'm 34 now and have started playing off and on again with glimpses of my former self but really a 20 or so handicap and I doubt I'll be improving much with only playing once a month or so.  With that sad I've come to the realization my old clubs just aren't as forgiving as I need.

I'm 6'2" with about a 110mph swing.  I hit the ball long and high, but tend to be left or right of the green by about 10 feet.  Looking to minimize the mishits, however most of the "game improvement clubs" I read about on mygolfspy all talk about helping you get the ball in the air which is not a concern, if anything my ball flight can be a bit too high at times.  Just looking for something that will help those shots that are slightly off target be a little less off target.  I was thinking of a used set of Taylormade RSI 1s.  

Any opinions or suggestions?

Your best bet is to find a good club fitter. Try everything that the fitter suggests. Look at the launch monitor numbers and see what you like the looks of. Pick the ones that you hit the best and look good to you at address.

A couple of things to keep in mind. Most game improvement clubs these days have some jacked up lofts on them so the only way they stop on greens is by high launch. In your searches, look for more traditionally lofted clubs if you can, somewhere around 33-35 for 7 iron.

Another big factor in launch will be the type of shafts you have on the club. If you go to a fitter and they don't have you try out some different shaft options ask them to. The same club with different shafts can have huge differences in ball flight.

Definitely fitter. There were things I had no idea about for me or would have even considered.....it’s worth every penny for long term purchase.

And a fitting is a lot cheaper then buying clubs that don't work for you.

Seeing a fitter as everyone recommended is obviously the best thing to do if your budget allows. Even if you're buying used clubs that you can't customize, you will at least know what length and lie angle you should be shopping for. Most of the big box golf specialty stores will probably get you some measurements for length and lie angle if you go in and tell them you're looking for new clubs. That way you can at least be shopping for something that fits as you may have a much more limited selection if you can't use standard length/lie clubs or you can figure in the cost of getting what you buy adjusted properly.

What is your budget and what are you currently playing?

I am 6’3” and 100mph driver swing speed.

I was continuosly missing my approach right. Went for a fitting and i was fitted +1/2’ ans 2up.

it changed my life...

so as everyone advice... go for a good fitting! And after that use those specs and shop for a great deal 🙂
