How should I spend $150 in store credit?

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 

So I have roughly $150 in store credit at my local golf shop. I currently don't NEED anything golf related, but at the same time it is almost burning a hole in my pocket. I've got a set of clubs I really like, plenty of decent golf balls, gloves, etc.

 

If you were in a similar position, what would you consider buying for yourself? Keep in mind 2011 will be my first season as a handicapped golfer, and I'm looking to top the 75+ rounds I played last year, and play in some local tournaments, etc.

 

The only clubs I'm even halfway considering is possibly a 23* hybrid to swap out the 4 iron for, but I don't really need it because I hit my 4 iron just fine, or possibly a whole new set of wedges, both of which will cost more than my store credit.

If it were me .... I'd go for clothes in that situation - or maybe a rain suit.

Get a million tees. You'll never have to worry about them for the rest of your life!

Get some the new nike lunar control shoes, or some pro v1's

Always check out the used section of the store, you never know what you can find!

Clothes, shoes, and clubs! Oh my! What a good problem to have. You can solve your problem by just sending me you $150 in credit. Haha, just get whatever you need the most.

If the credit doesn't expire....wait.

 

Clubs have a way of breaking, shoes have a way of wearing out, etc. I'd wait till I needed it.

 

If I had to spend the money, I'd probably go get as many square-grooved wedges as I could before they aren't around.

I'm definitely sitting on it for now. Once the season gets rolling up here, I'm sure I will find something I need, rather than something I want. I am thinking seriously about getting a push-cart, though.

GPS...

I would use it, along with an additional $100, to get a Bushnell Medalist rangefinder.

 

Or, to stock up on gloves and balls, etc.

I would get  few lessons.  I have no idea what you shoot to, but unless you are on the Tour, I would think we all can use lessons.  Short game is where it is at, and the best way to drop your scores (IMO).  I have been going to Golftec for 1 month (1 lesson per week) and my swing is so much better.  My index last year got to about a 5, but I have lost that mojo and probably playing more like an 8.  I am convinced my new swing will get be back to 5, or less!

 

I always thought my swing was decent, until i saw it on video and saw frame by frame.  UGLY.  

 

BTW, I have $200 in golf store credit and don't really need anything, but man it is burning a hole in my w.  Thinking of a new cart bag with 14 individual slots.  Perhaps the 2011 Sun Mountain C130 will replace my Ogio Grom.

Golf rangefinders are the biggest rip offs in the world.

 

 

Go get a hunting range finder for $90 and keep the $150 for other stuff.

I just got the bushnell V2 and love it.. I've only got two rounds with it before the snow came but it was already a big help... Its really the best for approach shots.. Before I would hit it flush and still be thirty forty feet away becasue gps gave me center of green..

 

I don't know if the hunting rangefinders can lock in on the pin like my V2 so I can't comment...But you would improve greatly with a rangefiner.
