  How many weekend warriors have had good instruction in the game of golf, especially their swing?  Most of them are doing good to make good ball contact from good lies, start making them hitting it where it lays and they'll be chopping and hacking down the fairway at a snails pace, even slower than they already are.   My only point being, many of those guys don't even have a clue as to what their handicap is, they don't care.  They're out with their buddies having fun...
  A typical weekend golfer doesn't carry a 4.8 handicap like yourself.  More like 20 + and that's when he fluffs lies, takes multiple mulligans, etc.  Those guys are doing good to make good contact with the golf ball in an ideal lie, start asking them to play off deadpan, out of divots, weeds, heavy rough, etc and they'll be hitting even worse, getting frustrated which will only lead to even more bad shots. 
When it comes to working, I'm best in the morning, the earlier the better.  As for golf.  Amazingly I've found that my best rounds have always been started in mid - late afternoon.  Mornings aren't my bag apparently.
  And there's already enough complaints about slow play on a typical course, especially on the weekends.  Can you imagine what it would be like if everybody played it as it lay?   Slow play amplified. 
You haven't played in 10 years?  I hadn't played in 25.  The advances in golf ball construction are simply amazing.  Like you, back then you had the choice of the "tour" balls, Balata covered but would barely last a few holes before the cover got damaged or the Surlyn covered rocks of the day, which was just about everything else.   My suggestion would either be pick a selection up from a yard/garage sale or go golf ball picking the next time you're out and try a...
  Yep, I'll stick in the basket behind the seats.  Usually the person will wind up back tracking and claim his/her club.  Otherwise I turn it into the marshal if ones comes by or the clubhouse after the round ends. 
If I'm playing a tournament, which is rare or playing for a true score, I play by the rules.   Otherwise, I will improve my lie if the ball sits on ground that would normally be GUR.  That said, I've got problems with my hands and wrists, attempting to play out of some lies risks not only my club but damage to my arms, wrists and hands,  I'll fluff in those instances.    Honestly, the average once a week golfer has a hard enough time mastering the game, if he's...
When I played last some 25 years ago I was scaring upper 70's rounds most of the time.   What got me there?  36-45 holes a week along with at least an hour on the range each week.   1. Driving.  I was long, 275 + with a wood!  But it was my accuracy along with a predictable ball flight that made the difference.  Distance does help but accuracy and keeping the ball in play in the fairway along with properly playing each hole is the key.  Not every hole requires...
To be fair to the seller, they were patient with you.  You indicated in an above post that you were going to request additional pictures before you made up your mind.   I can tell you now that if that set of clubs appeared on my local Craigslist they'd be gone... FAST.  Somebody would be more than willing to drive over, with nothing more than the info given and pay cash on the barrel head, no additional info or pictures needed.. That's how craigslist works.  It's first...
At a 20 handicap, you'd be better off spending club money on a decent set of lessons.  Those Cobra clubs should easily be good enough to get you into the 6-10 handicap range.  Only after you've gotten to that level should you consider changing clubs IMO.
