Taking some golf lessons, got a women’s starter set I got to make sure I liked golf first. Instructor mentioned that the driver is like swinging a wet noodle for me lol and I should look into a men’s or one with stiffer flex. I have no idea what to look for. Are the people at Dicks Sporting Goods knowledgeable or worth driving the 40 min to PGA store?

Ended up going to PGA superstore today and tested out quite a few. Ended up getting a TaylorMade Sim Max D used!

Now go play Timacuan. After you’re done there, take a trip to the Ritz and then Reunion. Also, worth the drive to Deer Island!

He may be right, but the best way to find out is to determine your club speed before choosing a flex. I would either: A) go to the PGA store and ask more questions with one of the staff members there B) bring along a friend who is knowledgeable in golf (if applicable :) ) to make sure you aren’t steered the wrong way. Happy to answer any questions if you have some!

Thanks! I’ve been eyeing the Callaway Rouge or Mavrik, or TaylorMade Sim Max (2020 version) but I guess it’s all in the feel. I’ll make the trip out to PGA

I just got rid of my women’s starter set driver. Huge difference. My swing speed was way too fast (90 mph) and swinging a regular flex made a huge difference in accuracy and distance. Highly recommend!

I ended up with regular flex and steel regular flex on my new irons. I was really shocked my swing speed was 90 mph. Without the fitting I would have just bought senior flex.

If there’s a Golf Galaxy or other store that specializes in golf, you’ll be better off there. If you really like golf and you’re sure you’ll get good use out of it, Club Champion is the ultimate option for getting expert help picking out clubs. It’s just $$$

That’s what I figured, closest “golf” store is the PGA Tour Superstore but didn’t feel like driving that far but probably best option.

Where are you located?

I’m in Central FL. So thinking it will be a good investment since I can play almost year round.

I’d recommend driving to your nearest Country Club and talking to a pro there even if you aren’t a member. I’m sure they’d gladly help you out and who knows, maybe you’ll end up joining the club if you like gold enough. It’s a great sport and hope you enjoy it!

Hey fellow Disney Lovers, I generally have a few lessons in which I can use Pixar shorts to teach students how to identify and discuss literary signposts, how to identify and explain the development of theme, character traits, and other narrative elements.

Yesterday was a good day. I was really impressed with myself. I woke up at 5, practiced dance lessons, did two water colors, made breakfast and tea, got to work by 10, put in 8-10 hours of solid work and then came home. It’s been ages since I painted or danced. However today, I slept till 7:00, did not work out or have food. Still got to work by 10 and did 8 solid hours of work. Some days are good and some are just okay. And that is okay. Trying to build on my good days and we all can. :)
