Our Recommendations for an Advanced Golf Set
The ideal set would start with some Players Irons. These clubs have less perimeter weighting and a thinner topline. They have minimal offset and a more traditional look. They are easy to move the ball right to left and left to right. You can really feel the ball and tell where it's going.
Driver would have a little less loft (9-10 degrees). Make sure the shaft is correct for your swing speed and ball flight. The trial and error process may be required to get the shaft that feels just right to you.
Fairway woods and long irons are the critical clubs to make those long par 4s and par 5s reachable. You may want to find that perfect 3 wood for the par 5s and that 2 hybrid for high soft-landings on those long par 4s. This may also take some trial and error and certainly a solid club fitting.
Your wedge options are where the details start to really count. Finding the right combination of loft, feel and bounce to fit your requirements is the name of the game. Much depends on what loft you have on your pitching wedge. You want 5-6 degrees between clubs up from there.
For an advanced player, custom fitting of shafts and club lofts to your game requirements becomes much more important. You want to make sure you can cover every 10-15 yards down from your longest club. You also want to be able to control trajectory for whatever shot requirements pop up - high and soft for small or hard greens and low and boring for wind and knock downs.
Set configuration: Woods (1, 3, 5) Hybrids (3) Irons (Players) (4-PW, SW, LW), Putter.
Driver: The advanced Doublewall 360cc Titanium Driver is light weight, yet extremely strong and stable. This proprietary design abandons the "trampoline effect" technology recently adopted by most other golf club manufacturers. Instead, it achieves its performance by building the "solid concrete floor" from which the Doublewall acheives it's performance. The design is engineered to achieve the largest, most stable sweet spot in golf at the highest COR allowed by USGA Rules.
Fairway Woods: The DoubleWall Fairway Woods are the prefect complement for the above driver. They feature a compact low profile head design giving you the cutting edge on those ever important long shots out of any type of lie on the course. In addition, the woods can be used to hit long but controlled tee shots resulting in more fairways and better scores.
Irons/Hybrids: The Pinemeadow Excel Strong Irons: The sleek radius of the sole and notch weighting system throughout the club head create an optimum launch trajectory that maximizes distance through added carry and roll. The short hosel, rounded toe and moderate top line of these clubs are a favorite of low handicap players.
Wedge: We suggest you replace the SW that comes with the above set and add another lob wedge as well. The Classic Grind Wedge (54 and 60 Degrees) offers you good control, touch and a classic sleek design. The wedge has a unique beveled sole combined with proven shape and bounce design to provide accurate play from any lie.
Putter: The Xeon M-6 Putter is a sleek Anser style putter with comparable features of a mallet design. Two thru holes in the sole increase MOI a feature you find in most mallet putter designs today. The tri-line alignment with a curve shaped top rail is the size of a golf ball providing a nice visual aid for your aim. Black polymer insert provides you with a soft buttery feel at impact.
The above top-of-the-line selection is a great choice for an advanced golfer. It costs only a fraction of what a comparable 'branded' set would cost. This leaves you with plenty of cash to play more golf, isn't that the way it should be? ...
