    Thanks, everyone!  Really appreciate it.  I will get my fitting and start looking around and come back here with updates.

    Buying advice for second set of clubs
    Hi all,

    I'm 26 and I've been playing golf for about six months.  I bought a set of Strata beginner clubs for about $200 and I've taken about five lessons with the same instructor.  My instructor claims I am progressing rapidly and have already outgrown my cheap clubs.  He has offered to fit me for new clubs for free, so once I have my fit I will be looking to buy new clubs.  As I am a beginner, I have no idea what brands of clubs would be best, and no idea what a fair price is.  I don't want to break the bank and I don't need top of the line clubs, but I want a significant upgrade from my first set and I am probably willing to spend in the $500 to $1,000 range on a full set.  In case it matters, I am about 6'2" and 240 lbs with a big but athletic frame.  I would appreciate any thoughts on good brands, or any buying advice in general.

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    - Harry
