Hey everyone.

So I am starting to get into golf and have no clue what to look for when buying clubs.  I don't want a completely beginner set seeing as I pick sports up pretty quick and can already drive the ball straight pretty much  everytime..

What clubs would you recommend?

Before you get clubs, find yourself a golf clinic. These clinics give basic lessons to beginners to get them started in golf. Often, the people who conduct the clinics will lend you clubs to get you started.

A golf pro at one of these clinics could help you decide what clubs you need.

Too many beginners - and unfortunately lots of people who have been playing for awhile - think of golf clubs mainly in terms of club heads. Half the club is the shaft. The shaft can vary in length, stiffness, weight and other qualities. You want to make sure you get a shaft that fits your swing.

Get a set of used clubs with good grips, that are considered max golf improvement clubs. Realize these clubs will be used for only a  year or so. This will get you to learn to hit the ball right away. They will be more forgiving. Next year you will have a better idea what you are doing, how you hit the ball etc. Dicks has some older models that are new and reasonable in price, if you want a new set. Golf doesn't have to be expensive to get equipped with. Then find a local muni course to be able to practice and get out as much as you want for a reasonable price.

There are several good places on the web to buy good used clubs. www.global golf .com is a good site.

Good luck.

i found a great set at a local golf shop that sold used equipment. ebay always seems to have tons of stuff on there but be prepared to do a lot of shopping and comparing if youre looking around the $400 mark.

    • What'd You Shoot Today?
      76 today 36 on the front 40 on the back I started off hitting the ball better than I ever had. I didn't miss a fairway until somewhere on the back 9 and the only thing that kept me from going low was not being able to convert on key birdie opportunities. Had a real good look at shooting under par but I let my swing get a little quick on the final holes as I played the closing three at +4. Despite a couple errant tee shots and a 4 -putt (yes, a 4-putt...), this was a pretty clean round for me. I feel good going into a 4 day break.  
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Tiger never got "so big." Have you seen the dude in person? He was not an imposing figure. This is a myth. I get that he can look pretty stacked on TV, but he's not: his shirts were tight, and he was fit, but he wasn't "so big." Like most men, he filled out from the time he was 20 until he was 26, 27…
    • The Tiger Woods/PED Thread
      Wrong again! I loved Tiger when he was out there dominating the game. He was great for golf, bringing new fans and attention to the sport. I attended the WGC Bridgestone in Akron when Tiger was in his ascendancy. I tried to follow him, but it was impossible! He had to be dragging 10,000 people around the course! But I, like many others, began to wonder when Tiger got so big. Remember when he first came on tour? A skinny string bean with big, thick glasses. When he showed up at Stanford it was his teammate, Notah Begay, who tagged him with the nickname "Urkel"! Even though Woods and Begay became friends, I don't think Tiger liked "Urkel" very much. And it's been reported that Tiger didn't like the idea of golfers not being considered "real" athletes either. So, if Tiger was juicing he never got caught. Neither did Bonds, Sosa or McGwire. There is no proof, but suspicions remain. It's kind of sad to see Tiger in his current state, trying to claw his way back to the tour. No doubt he has enough money to last the rest of his and his kid's lives, but you don't get to where he was unless you are competitive. I think that might be what Tiger misses the most. I just remembered that he named his yacht "Privacy" because, at the time, that is what he craved. Well, he has plenty of it now. Wonder how that's sitting with him?

      Black Mass
      The story about the infamous crime lord Whitey Bulger. It starred Johnny Depp as Whitey Bulger. Benedict Cumberbatch played his brother, and US Senator Billy Bulger. This was an enthralling movie to watch. I give it a tap in Birdie. I give Johnny Depp an birdie performance. He was totally convincing playing Whitey Bulger.  Kung Fury
      This is a little gem I found when I was hanging out with my friends just skimming through Netflix. This is a movie that was crowd funded through kickstarter. It has that cheesy 80's action movie coupled with cheesy kung-fu movie feel to it. It just works brilliantly to give you an over the top 30 minutes of enjoyment. I give it an birdie for outstanding exaggerated fun and enjoyment.

      Watching Steph make clutch 3s from mid court routinely must be like watching Spieth putt those 15-20 footers knowly there always a chance goes in no matter how tough the green is
