Any good ideas?
How old? $100 would likely buy you a 2 year old driver off of ebay.
Do you want to look at one of the square drivers that were popular at that time? The 910 from Titleist is out of your price range, but I would think the surefit adjustable hosel would be worth the $50 over your $100 budget.
Ping golf clubs typically always have a resale value higher than everybody else. But the G15 is available for around $100
The G20 is closer to $150
Callaways' FTiZ can be had for around $75
My point is, scour EBAY. Drivers have a terrible resale value, and people tend to upgrade every 2 years or less, so generally speaking a $300 driver 2 years old can be had for 1/4~1/2 of its first run price.
