Re: $1000 - Lessons or Equipment?

I would get lessons. I had some lessons earlier this year and I can't even tell you how much its improved my game. I don't have much money right now so lessons are out of the question.

greens fees. Nothing like a little OJT.

(sorry...don't need equipment and have never enjoyed someone telling me how to play the game.)

Based on the clubs I've got, I'd go with equipment.

I think a third option should be "Green Fees" Because I'd probably get a 5W, 54* and maybe a lesson. The rest would go towards green fees. This is mainly because I'm a broke sophomore in high school.

The next golf related $1000 I spend will hopefully be greens fees.

A good golfer can play well even with lousy equipment.
A lousy golfer cannot play well with even the best equipment.

Makes me happy to live in such a rural area. Our course owner is a 40 plus year PGA Teaching Professional that has been giving lessons for just about as long as I have been alive and his rate is $25 for a half hour session or five half hour sessions for $100.


If I had the choice I would still spend the money on lessons first. It is never the arrow, always the indian.

60/40 equipment/lessons..... It may not be the arrow but you are a more confident hunting indian with some bad ass weapons.

A multi-day golf camp would be fun, but would cost more than $1000. So I'll take equipment. A new carry bag, a driver, two dozen balls and I will define an HD video camera for swing analysis as a necessary piece of golf equipment.

I would buy equipment, then sell it, then spend that money on a golf vacation.

Lessons, most of the time the best equipment is in between the ears.

Re: $1000 - Lessons or Equipment?

Lessons for sure. I can get on some good streaks during a round...last Saturday I birdied 4 holes in a row, including the #1 and #2 hcap holes. My game from about 80 to 40 yards and in is what I need work on. Most other aspects of the game I am happy with in respect to the reduced playing time and practice over the past year.
