First post here, new member! I was just golfing over the weekend and the guys I was playing with were surprised at my club choice on my approach shots. I was using a 7 iron for 150, but am gradually moving to my 8 iron as my ball striking gets more consistent. I'm hitting the back of the green too often and having to lag putt crazy far. I'm not a great lag putter.

 

Anyway I feel like that is probably a pretty normal club choice @150 out for someone like me (around 30 5'10" and fairly athletic, but not the best golfer so not trying to murder the ball). But these guys kept saying my swing looks slow and easy and I'm not sure if that's because I have a pretty slow backswing or if my clubhead speed is really slow for my demographic?

 

Last relevant piece of info is that I shoot in the high 80s on a good day, am a terrible putter so I three putt pretty often, and am currently playing Adams Golf Tight Lies (cavity back game improvement irons) hand me downs from a buddy who gave them to me when I picked up golfing for the first time a couple years back. I'll get some better clubs when I get a more consistent ball strike. Looking forward to that day.

 

Thanks!

If you are going to do this, be sure to post the model of club and/or loft, too. There are too many differences between brands and models.

I hit my 60 degree wedge which is bent to 46 degrees. Makes me look cool.

Fair point, problem is all I know is they are Adams Golf Tight Lies irons. I didn't buy them and they are probably five or six years old at least. Sorry I don't have more info.

One important fact everyone is leaving out is altitude changes. He is in Boise Idaho according to his info.

 

With me it is a 6 iron at sea level of course I am 60 years old hitting a 1980 Macgregor blade iron.

 

In the case of the OP IMHO not too bad considering how long he has been playing

Very similar to the OP, 5'10", 31 years old, athletic build (or use to be). I played baseball growing up and have finally grew into a golf swing. At 150 yards, I'm between a PW and 9 iron. That is using Mizuno MP-53 irons.
