I must one cheap old man. Just read this thread and it never occurred to me to see what I have invested in the bag I'm currently playing. GEL putter, $50 online purchase brand new. Maltby Tricept wedges, 54* and 58*, $33 apiece. Maltby TE forged iron heads, 6i - GW, $150 6 steel shafts for irons (cheap-o), $48 Old Callaway Big Bertha 5i that I reshafted with a Prolaunch Blue, ($25 shaft) Black widow grips on my irons, 0.60cents each (on sale from Maltby), $6 Cleveland...
 I'm the old guy you all see on the course who is wearing long pants and a wide-brim straw hat. Had a malignant melanoma removed from my forehead two years ago.I'll still wear short sleeves, but everything else I try to keep covered up. I love chasing that white ball too much to quit.
Nope; thanks for clarifying because I must have misunderstood you. I figured if I can't keep it in play, I have to pay the price. Bad lie, tree roots, sticks, etc. You're right; it's your decision to chance it. I'm not a big risk taker.
 ouch! you mean I've been afraid of improving my chances of making better contact all these years because my ball might move if I removed a leaf, stick, stone, etc? As long as it moves back where it was it's ok?I know the rules about moveable obstructions and replacing a ball to where it was if it moves and the penalties involved.And I know a lot of you guys know the book a lot better than I do. Technically you are right, but I don't think that's really the spirit of...
Did the ball move? Tiger: "it oscillated." Oscillate: to swing or MOVE to and fro; to CAUSE TO MOVE to and fro. He moved stuff from around his ball so he could make purer contact. He caused his ball to MOVE by doing that. Penalty.
I always use a two part epoxy I get from golf suppliers. You don't have to, you can use any good epoxy. Just make sure it has a very high shear strength. Those fast epoxies are sometimes not as strong as the ones that take longer to cure, either, so be careful using something you got for cheap at a hobby shop.
 Hey, George Shot, thanks for your verification of my un-craziness. Nice clubs you got!I am really happy with my bag right now. I'm pretty slow to change things and update I guess because I get comfortable! My driver is a Cleveland Launcher SL290 @ 12*, R flex. Just got it this year. I tipped the shaft a little and it feels really solid. The hybrid you asked about? (lol) It's a "Tiger Shark" 21* I picked up for around $50 about eight or nine years back. Still...
You might check out Rockbottomgolf.com, too. I've found some stuff there at pretty good prices. It's all a couple years old, but still new.
 you just resurrected a three year old post, but I'm glad you did. I thought I was crazy and alone because I just took out my 3w and put in a 58* lob wedge. Wedges are now 50*, 54*, & 58* (9i is 47*). 4w (17*) is in the bag between 12* driver and 21* hybrid.I don't feel so crazy and alone anymore. Thanks!
 If it's truly the first time you hit the club, then by all means, take it back in to the shop where you bought it and ask if there is any warranty. Even "cheap" clubs have some kind of warranty. At the worst, somebody could reshaft it for you. You can get a variety of steel shafts for under $10, plus labor to install. If you bought it at a golf store or pro shop, they should take care of you. I'm not so sure what a big box store would do, though.
