I am getting back into golf after an absence of just over a decade and am still using my Spalding Tour Impact clubs I bought when I was 17. Basic set of 3-PW Irons and a set of woods. I retired its 1 wood as soon as I had enough money for an oversized driver.
Here I am golfing again and want to buy some used clubs that might be better than I have now. I don’t want to hand down a $500+ hundred for a new set of clubs just yet. My swing just isn’t consistent again yet. I would like to could keep the set of Irons under $200, and fairway woods under 75 each.
So here are my questions:
- Should I buy a set of irons or some fairway woods first?
- Should I buy used set (A friend of mine has a set of Green Dot Ping Eye 2’s for sale, but older clubs I have seen seem a bit worn) or a generic brand of clubs? (Like gigagolf.com, though I am a businessman and would like to play charity tournaments sponsored by my customers and suppliers, and not sure if I’d be looked down on for having ‘off brand’ equipment’)
Basically give me your opinions please!
