Short Version: Give me ideas where I can find inexpensive clubs online.
Long Version: I'm returning to the game of golf after 7 or so years away (There was some sporadic playing in those 7 years, but nothing regular). Basically, I need to get some new clubs, but I'm not good enough, nor do I make enough money to justify spending thousands of dollars on new clubs.
I've bought a few clubs from callawaygolfpreowned.com. I'm satisfied for the most part-- I bought an original Big Bertha Driver for only $9 and it's the best thing I've ever had, but I know technology has far exceeded what was used on that original Big Bertha. I also have a need for new irons. But I've never used all my irons in a set (3-PW). I only use the 7 and 9 irons. Buying a whole set would be a waste of money for me. And I'm left-handed, making clubs hard to find. I'm not apposed to buying used clubs, but can't help but think that there's a "new club" alternative.
I did try a 9 iron from Giga Golf, and though I was impressed with the quality, I'm still a little skeptical. I've read a couple reviews where those clubs break after a year or so. And plus, when it's time to update clubs, I doubt anyone will buy the Giga Golf (or any other clone) clubs from me. I guess those clone clubs don't have a good reputation. I'd be stuck with those clubs. (But some will always be willing to spend some money on a Callaway.)
I also live in the middle of nowhere. I do have a golf course close to me, but no pro shop or anything. In fact, the closest place where I can get golf clubs (excluding Walmart) is about an hour and a half drive from me. Online is my BEST option.
So, with all that in mind, where are some good places to find inexpensive clubs online? I'm not too big on the name of the brand, just as long as it's reputable. Retailer. Direct-To-Customer. Whatever.
And yes, this is my first-ever post here. Go easy on me.
