I've recently started playing golf regularly again for the first time in almost a decade.  My signature has my current clubs, but I'm on the prowl for new irons, a gap wedge, and a 3-wood.  My handicap (not yet official) is trending down.  My last 4 rounds (my first in almost 7 years) have been 106, 104, 101, and 97.  I feel like with maybe a couple of lessons and continued practice and play, I'll be back into a mid to upper-teens handicap in no time. 

My current irons (BH-5, Ben Hogan) are fine, but the trajectory is very high.  Not to mention, they are 14 years old now.  I hit the ball pretty far for an old and overweight guy.  Swing speed is usually over 100 and my driver ball speed is 145-155. 

Thanks for reading all that.  Looking forward to participating around here regularly.

Thank you.  I did the worst possible thing at PGA Superstore while waiting for my putter to be regripped the other day.  I tried out putters. 🙂
