Nope, I buy what I need when I need it.  My golfing partner is just the opposite.  He's addicted to garage sale golf gear.  Last weekend he gave me two Ping 1 irons that he didn't want and last month an old persimmon 3 wood.   All garage sale clubs.  He's got so much golf junk accumulated he's started giving it away to help reduce the clutter in his garage. But it's only increasing the clutter in mine.  I suggested he put them on Ebay or donate them to the "buy a club...

I find myself wondering when the beer girl will be coming around again.
