A little bit of background. At this point in my life I am only an occasional golfer - about 10 rounds last year. A large portion of those rounds are played when visiting my family out of state. Due to the varying quality and consistency of rental clubs (this last trip I had what can best be thought of as a "Tin Cup" mixed bag - I may have literally been better off with a baseball bat and shovel) I have been thinking about putting together a set of used clubs to leave with family. What I am looking for is the best full set of clubs I can put together for $300 or less. Ideally clubs should be forgiving, easy to hit and easy to find. I am not expecting once in a lifetime deals or garage sale finds so simply looking over average ebay final listing prices. From reading forums and doing research I am thinking something along the following lines would work well but would love feedback and opinions.
Irons (Budget $150-$200)
Ping Eye 2 - 3-SW (ideally would include a LW)
Driver (Budget $50-$75)
Cleveland Classic 290 - Assume I would need to go with one of the stock shafts - would love feedback on which to be looking for
Fairway Woods (Budget $50-$100)
These are the clubs I have put the least amount of research in so wide open to feedback. I currently have a Callaway Warbird 3 & 5 wood in my bag. I know these are old tech but I still hit them well so at worst I would plan on purchasing duplicates for this set. Would love suggestions.
Putter (Budget $20-$40)
Vintage Ping, not particular on model, does not need to be valuable or collectible. I currently own a Tommy Armour putter that is basically the Ping Anser shape. I put well with it so simply looking to duplicate the shape and like the idea of an old Ping head.
To head off the comments I will be looking for clubs that meet my fitting specs.
So...any thoughts on the above bag - what would you do differently with a $300 budget. Thanks!
