If you can find a nice place to play, cheap and have friends who play and like to gamble this game might be the one of the greatest luxiuries of life.
Clubs- just make sure you don't get blades- you want oversized preferably if your starting out- a lesson would help alot too
Graphite or Steel - are what the shafts are made of Grafite= more distance Steel= more control
I would reccomend Tommy Aarmorr's 845's irons for beginners- I say that because I just saw a deal where you could buy them for $200 -try Amazon
wow, i was going to recommend the same thing. they are great clubs for the beginniner looking to get better. the play somewhere between blades and cavities in terms of feel so as you begin to own your swing and strike the ball better you can still appreciate some degree of feel. if you are 6'1 and relatively young and strong, i would recommend stiff steel shafts because you probably don't need help generating power. you just need to practice with good tempo and technique. 845s with stiff steel are good transition clubs that will help you to develop better habits than more forgiving clubs. a good way to approach a golf swing is to start really slow and find the point and tempo where you are able to consistently strike the ball cleanly. i own these clubs and personally think they are awesome and am glad i didnt shell out more money for bigger name clubs. i got an unmolested used set on ebay for around $220 3 years ago and i've been able to grow a lot.
