How much is your golf set worth?

527 posts in this topic

I was reading through a thread where are poster said to another poster that their set was expensive.
How expensive has it been to build up your bag?
This is golf clubs only, including modifications made to them.
It would be interesting to see if it varies by different handicaps.
Please calculate by the price that you paid, not rrp.

Mine:
£590

My set of clubs I currently play cost me about $1400. However, I just picked up the Mizuno MP-60 irons (used) for $220 and just order a Odyssey 2-Ball XG (used) for $100. The Cobra S9 irons I've been playing the past few years were $600 new, so I'm cutting my 'bag value' by about $400 with new irons, but the Scotty putter I got for only $40, so that's $60 extra for putter. I guess that puts me down around $1150 or there abouts.

Counting all of the clubs I've bought in the past 7 years (that's when I got back into game seriously after not playing for 10+ years) I have probably spent more than $3000. That includes 4 sets of irons (2 used), 7 drivers, 9 woods (5-3Woods; 2-5woods; 1-7wood; 1-9wood), 8 hybrids, 9 wedges and 6 putters. I purchases about 1/2 of these used and have resold most peices so total costs haven't been as bad as they could have been. I've always been looking for the right mix for me.

My set as currently constitued would probably cost about $800-900 total. Thank god for ebay. If purchased retail the set would probably be in the 2-3k range. My favorite purchase was my 2 hybrid for 11 dollars.

I got great deals on pretty much all the clubs in my bag. Lets see:

Taylor Made Tour Burner - $120 (Brand New in plastic)
Mizuno MP-33 3-PW - $185
Mizuno MP-R wedges (52,56,60) - $100
Titleist Scotty Pro Platinum - $140
Tour Edge Exotics CB FW - Free!
08 Ogio stand bag - $60

So approx. $605 for my dream set. Not bad if you ask me.

Let's see...
$190 for the irons (eBay)
$70 for the 588 wedge
$130 for the hybrid
$150 for the driver
$70 for the putter
$80 for the bag
Give or take some money, so I'd estimate around $700.

      Well, I went ahead and bit. Amazon Warehouse Deals has a few for $86 each. I had a $25 Amazon GC from Christmas, so after tax, it's going to be $66. It says the packaging is damaged, but no mention of problems with the device. Here's hoping it comes in good shape, and that it warms up pretty quickly so I can use it!
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (February 2016)
      The tournament I was supposed to play in was cancelled , so I played in a shotgun start today. The group I was in played at a quicker pace than the group in front and the group behind us, so I had plenty of opportunities for practicing greenside chipping and bunker shots as well as putting.
    • Jack or Tiger: Who's the Greatest Golfer?
      While I expect it's largely accurate, I was more interested in a link to the actual quote than your paraphrase. The context of the question and interview plus the exact wording gives a clearer understanding of the statement. I accept deeper field of talent, I don't accept that it's automatically 'a ton' or an order of magnitude greater. What's the average score relative to the field (or % making the cut) in the PGA for the Pros vs. the PGA qualifiers from then to now? That could provide some insight to relative gap between majors field depth then and now. I am certain it's gotten harder for the PGA qualifiers to make it tot he weekend. I am less certain by how much the margin has shifted. The reason I stress the Majors and Opens is that size of field and openness to qualifiers is very important in making the top competitors face many elite players with potential to have a hot run of form. You're comparing apples to oranges there. That was ~ 1.5 million players in the U.S., not the world population of golfers. About 26 million golfers today in the U.S. Worldwide in 1920 who knows? But including Europe, Australia, and other 'commonwealth' countries it was likely double that - maybe triple. Also I can find no credible estimate that supports 100 million current golfers worldwide. Most generous is about 61 million. While there are a lot of clubs world-wide, participation of 'casual' unaffiliated golfers per club is not going to be the same as in the U.S. and that's the only way I get a number close to 100 million based on actual data. U.S. golf population talent base roughly tripled between Jack and Tiger and I expect worldwide it was a similar rate of increase. I think since the 1920's the U.S. has had about half the wold golf population, though that's started to decline of late as Asian participation increases. Jack was head and shoulders above highly competitive fields for nearly a generation similar to Tiger. I don't think human abilities change by orders of magnitude in short spans of time so I expect that Jack was an outlier of similar human ability as Tiger. How close and who has the edge is IMO debatable. Were Tiger's achievements (esp. the 'beat the field' streak) tougher than Jack's because of field depth, yes. How much more I'm not as sure as you. Did a relative 'competitive break' from full field events offered by the WGC's help Tiger there? Don't know but it's possible. Combine Tiger's regular wins and Majors and I have no problem giving him the greatest player of all time nod. I just don't think it's as cut and dried or by as large a margin as you seem to. They didn't play against each other so your confidence isn't any more a fact than my uncertainty. We're both estimating. Size of the field actually competing matters too, not just who wasn't invited to the party. I like the idea of a top player field and enjoy watching the events, but if only the top 50 players are playing they all have a better shot statistically than if the field was open to 156 or more players who are still very 'elite' in skill. As you've said in many posts, golf skill performance is highly variable. I agree and that's why I think size of field is relevant to the comparison, because I think the scoring variability of the top 90 golfers in the world overlaps considerably with the next 90 down and even a bit beyond that. That's why I wondered whether WGC wins are a bit less valuable than a major or a full field PGA tour event that's also open to Monday qualifying. Granted the world ranking system is better than it used to be, but it still weights international events more strongly than they deserve. Some of the reasons I think you may be undervaluing Nicklaus' achievement in comparing across eras.
    • "5 Minutes Daily" Practice Challenge (January 2016)
      I managed to complete the January challenge (without missing a day, I believe). It was a great months' work for my game - having to blog every day sure helps to focus each session.
