need some advice on club upgrades, I'm 6'4"

5 posts in this topic

Hi all I've been golfing for a few years now. I play a set of garage sale specials and shot a 110 last week. I'm looking to upgrade to some new to me clubs. I'd like a good set to help shave some strokes off my game but I really have no idea where to start. What to buy or where to shop. I live in the South Bend, IN area and would like to keep costs down. Say $200 to $300. Pretty much would just like to get my game consistently under 100 strokes or better. Any thoughts anyone could offer would help. Thanks in advance. Also I'm like 6 foot 4 so maybe some extended clubs might be needed. I'm not sure about this though either. Thanks again

Welcome to the site @jckuhl.  A good place to start would be understanding what length clubs you would need.  The best advice would be to get properly fit.  But at your budget, you can get a good start by checking out on-line fitting.  Check out Ping's on-line fitting section.

http://www.ping.com/fitting/nflightweb.aspx

From there, you can look at getting some decent used clubs to fit you.  Some retailers, like Golfsmith, carry used clubs, which may be a good place to start.  E-bay is also a good place to find decent used club if you know what you are looking for.

Thanks for the input. I'm going to check out the on line fitting. Buying clubs of the Internet scares me bit though as I wouldn't be able to swing or hit any balls first. But maybe I can go to a store or pro shop and try out any I find online, then go home and go the Internet route if I like them. I'll post what I find on here first so I don't end up with a more expensive set of clubs that don't help my game at all. Thanks to everyone again. There are just so many options out there I'm overwhelmed.

When my son wanted to take up golf about a year and a half ago, I did not want to spend top dollar until I knew he would keep playing.

I got him a set of Callaway X20's off ebay for something like $200$220 plus free shipping. When we got them they looked close to new a scratch here and there only.

He still plays them now and is on the HS team, we have only re-griped about 2 months ago, so don't discount ebay look at the feed back others leave.

I don't recall the ebay store but I am sure others on here will be able to help you with that?

If you have a store to go try out what they have until you find a brand you like and check out ebay or look at there used section. Rodger Dunn has a large used club area just about every make and model. Callaway has a pre-owned section online that they run deals all the time.

    • 14- way Carry Bags?
      I had an ogio 14 way carry bag and hated it after one frustrating round I gave it away. 
    • XE1 Wedge: Have you tried it?
      It may be great but at what cost?  Not willing to lose my dignity to possibly save a shot or two.  Plus I love my jaws wedges with the md grooves. Straight ?. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Well said Mr.  Desmond the funny thing in all this is that somehow poor people support Trump against their own best interest. And call bernie a communist despite not really knowing what that or socialism is or the difference between the two. 
    • Donald Trump for president?
      Bernie says the system is rigged - stats since the 1980's prove that a great amount of wealth has shifted towards a very small percentage of people. Does that not concern you?  Walmart employs people with such small wages that their people are on welfare, so the argument goes that Walmart is a huge beneficiary of living off the government tit. As to Bernie's war against financial institutions, can you doubt that Wall St helped out the 2007 Depression? Completely irresponsible behavior based on greed. Hedge fund managers get capital gains rate on their compensation? Ridiculous. How many people do you know make over $10M on ordinary income? That is where he proposes a 52% tax that become 73% when one adds SS and Single Payer taxes, and then you have the state income tax, so it would get high. And it is too high, but he would not get that through Congress unless we truly had a revolution and all the Dems came out to vote for the revolution. If all Dems vote, Pubs lose except in areas so gerryrmandered that the one party it favors will always win. Bernie on guns? He won't take away guns, it's not in his record. Bernie is not snake oil -- Bernie and Trump are here because of the last 30 years of growing inequity, political correctness and divisiveness. If we do not address it with traditional politics, then eventually people will wake up and vote their interests, which would be Sanders  or a similar politician. It is time for change, the last 30 years have been tough on all levels of the lower and middle classes while the upper class have the "let them eat cake" attitude. That only takes one so far before people vote for big change. I asked a 20 something the other night who she likes, Trump, Cruz, Sanders, Clinton - I said Clinton would work with the other side, Bernie wants a pipedream - she said "I want Bernie." I just said if you want Bernie, you better get out the vote because it will take a lot of young people to do it. Before I am "labeled" again, I don't think any candidates in either party are to my liking. But I think we do need incremental change ... now to reverse some of the last 30 years and renew the American Dream -- it should be for all, not 1%.
    • Anyone enjoying the drink tonight?
      Hopslam last night, just released by Bells.  Best beer in a can, which used to only be in a bottle.
