I can't speak to other brands, because the only nice set of clubs I have ever purchased were pings.  But for $800 for the set of Irons, I got a set that was custom built to my specifications.  The clubs arrived approx. 2 weeks after I ordered them and came with a toe tag that indicated which shaft, grip, etc. That I ordered.    Each club head was weighed, and the final product was verified to all have the same swing weight.  I know for a fact that the sets from big box...
When you say wore out, what do you mean?    When I first started, I got a set from walmart in a dunlop bag, the entire set probably only cost $100.  They lasted longer than 7 weeks, and I didn't know how to play golf at all.  I probably banged those clubs into the ground 1/2 dozen times and they still lasted longer than 7 weeks. 
A few things to consider.  Expensive golf clubs, such as the current year drivers from Nike / etc. typically have higher quality shafts than those made for store brand companies.  It isn't to say that the store brand isn't a quality piece of equipment.  Likely the consistency and feel of the shaft is going to be much improved.    The transfer of Energy from a driver club head to the ball is called COR (I think this is an overly simplistic explination) and it is limited...
  As for the doubling of money, we have always played that only the loser can choose to press.  This will make it so the winner can't "lose money" but the loser has the option to go double or nothing.  I guess this would work best if you broke the game into 3 6 hole matches, with the option for the losing team to press after the 4th hole, to try to win its money back.  I do however like the idea of partners based on which side of the fairway they are on, its a unique way...
this sounds interesting, when you play by handicap, is the score posted the adjusted or the real?    For instance, a player scores a 6, with a handicap a 5.  This is the first number as the other player scored a 7 net 6.    Is that a 56 or 67?
Nice round.    I have had similar experiences.  But, I have had the other hold true as well.    Last week, 5th hole, 390 yard par 4, trouble in the form of tree's on the left, and a dog leg right.  I hit a high fade, end up in the tree's on the left, about 200 from the green.  I look straight ahead, and I see that I can hit a low punch shot, and have open fairway.  If I go 50-150 yards, I will leave myself something between a 150 yard shot off the left rough, to...
  When I was hired the person who hired me told me that I would have a similar situation.  I would leave on Monday morning, and fly home around noon on Thursday.  It was domestic travel only.    That was 9 months ago.  I have been to China 2x, Brazil 3x, Prague, London, Mexico 4x and I think 2 or 3 cities in the US.    P.S. if you are interested in a playing partner for a Friday afternoon round, I have family in Orlando and we visit approx. twice a year.  They live in...
How many out there travel for work?  Do you travel domestically, internationally?  How often do you travel?    What are your thoughts on business travel?  Do you bring your clubs with you when you travel?
exactly - they didn't walk out of college into the job.  I have been in the industry for 15 years.  Like ANY industry, if you are good at what you do, and you are willing to take the risks associated with continually climbing the corporate ladder, plenty of high salary jobs exist out there in the IT field.
