Before i get into my story, i want to make things clear about my background. I have never wanted or tried to be professional golfer, i’m just the guy who likes to golf in his free time on weekends, that’s all. I’m not even very good at playing golf. I have high handicap (can’t give exact number, because it tends to fluctuate) and considering how little i spend on improving myself, it doesn’t seem likely to ever change. My handicap is 14 and I have never been lower than 13. I don’t think i have natural talent for golf, yet, if i played and practiced more, maybe i could get a whole lot better. This post won’t be about importance of practice in golf, though. It will be about amazing game improvement irons that i discovered.
My biggest problem always has been making slices and similar mistakes. I thought it was because of my swing, which isn’t perfect even now, but i didn’t realize equipment could have such a big role in how often you slice your golf shots. But that’s not to say that i didn’t try different golf clubs. I did experiment with various irons over last few years, but none of them were remarkable enough to truly make a difference. I don’t know, they might have been useful for solving problems that i didn’t have, all i know is that they couldn’t help me. On the other hand, i never tried latest release golf clubs with fancy designs and high prices. I thought releasing them was just a ploy by golf manufacturers to make golfers hand over more money. I still think that it’s better to spend money on instructors and use basic clubs when you’re beginner, but at this point, i wasn’t beginner anymore. I had few years’ experience, and wasn’t going anywhere.
That was when i first heard about PXG irons. Rumors had it that they were trying to make perfect game improvement iron, one that would help everyone. I was naturally curious, but high prices of their irons scared me a little bit. I kept hearing good things though, and read some reviews on online golf portals, so decided that it was worth the try. I didn’t go out to retail store though, as i still had budget concerns. Instead, i stalked craigslist listings for PXG clubs, and eventually, one became available for sell. For those who are in similar situations like mine, this is excellent way to save money on golf clubs. Just wait few months after they are released, and they are going to start to be sold at half or even less the original price. Getting good utility clubs for rare occasions when you need them is also very good idea. Here are few tips to help you in process of choosing them.
Back to PXG irons. When i first held them, i had a feeling they were different from any other club i’ve tried before. After taking first shot, i was sure of it and fell in love with these clubs instantly. I had never before enjoyed hitting golf club so much. PXG irons had excellent feel to them and results were remarkable as well. My problems of bad shots like slices instantly disappeared and my handicap started going down as well. Not as far down as i’d initially like, but still, results were there. Plus, you can’t really blame golf clubs for not improving your handicap significantly, equipment alone can’t really fix your game. You have to put effort yourself, and i understand that.
When i read golf club reviews in the past, i always thought that reviewers were exaggerating feel or game improvement effects of this or that club. I didn’t believe golf clubs could make such a difference. After trying PXG clubs though, now i know what it feels like. They are consistent, feel well and distance has increased compared to past golf clubs. Even when you make dire mistakes in hitting the golf ball, forgiving nature of these clubs evens out the effect. If i knew that this was possible, i might have even paid hundreds of dollars for new pair. But used set seems to be holding up pretty well too.
