Hey guys, 

First time poster, just looking for some advice on a new set of clubs. Been playing golf inconsistently growing up just with hand me downs but latley been getting into it more and wanted to upgrade my clubs. I can get a Callaway X-20 NG 4-9 iron set with PW and SW for $340 or slotline striker 4-5 Hybrid with 6-9 irons and PW and SW for 300. That would be my max budget, most places I’ve said invest in a good second hand pair rather then brand new less known clubs. Just wondering more about the slotline striker clubs and havnt been able to find much on them, just looking for more forgiving clubs with better accuracy. Any other clubs you can reccomend and/or advice on the ones mentioned would be really appreciated! Cheers guys

I think that's sound advice. No sense jumping in with 2 feet and spending a ton of money. I don't know anything about Slotline. Just looked at them on Ebay, and you can get complete sets of irons for about 80 bucks, with shipping included! Might not be a bad way to start. 

But, Callaway is a well established company with a solid reputation. I just bought an Epic Flash Driver off the "pre-owned" site and love it! Their stuff is first quality. 

However, if you're asking which will work better for you, we have no way of knowing. In many cases, you buy a set of clubs, and "learn" how to hit them! I had the same experience with my new Driver.

When a beginner buys clubs they become beginner's clubs.  Whether your first set costs 30 dollars or 3000 dollars; they are still beginner's clubs.

For $399, you can get a full set of Callaway Strata which includes D, 3W, 4H, 5H, 6-PW, SW, Putter, Bag, 4 headcovers. 

Costco: for $499 Callaway Edge set: D, 3W, 5H, 6-PW, SW, Odyssey Putter, 3 head covers, no bag.

They're a little more than you want to spend, but... Are you going to get the bug?

Finding a set of irons used right now is going to be tough because of the coronavirus stuff. People aren't buying because in many states golf shops are still considered non-essential businesses.

Callaway: Lookup 2015 BIG BERTHA iron set 5 - PW. Whatever you do, don't get a 4-iron... save yourself the trouble.

In your price range, in fact for less money, you could also get a brand new set of Wilson Staff D-200 irons - check out that retail site named after a jungle. As a matter of fact that is what I would wind up getting, Wilson Staff is a good brand.

    • No, the police knew George and probably did this premeditated. This case is unique in that regard. There are videos of police using that choke hold / maneuver on white people as well, with deadly consequences. By all regards, the policeman who used this choke hold did so with violation of written regulation on when it should be used. If they were even properly trained on when to use it. I feel like cops are given a patchwork of techniques that they hardly practice when to and how to use it.  Two of the cops were brand new to the force and were with a person who has been a policeman for over 10 years. Sorry to say, it probably would be career suicide to stand up to a cop with that many more years of service. It's not the right thing to do, but it's a very human thing that happens.   Especially when you hear stories about how police department culture can be. They would be branded snitches. Their lives would be hell for their career. Don't get me wrong, I wish they had the courage to stand up to policeman using the choke hold on George. I can understand their position and they're apprehension to not stepping in. Now, the third cop, who stood by and actually try to stop people from filming, should be hit with higher chargers than the two new police officers.  It should be training. It should be training that new police should know they can stand up and report on incidents like these.  I get you want people to magically have this thought, "Just treat them like family." But, that is a pipe dream that will never come true. Humans will forever treat people they don't know not as family. Still, you can treat someone with dignity and respect and still care for you family more.   
    • There is a teen near our area after contracting Coronavirus has now been diagnosed with another complication, Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome.   Multi-System Inflammatory Syndrome in Children causes swelling and pain in various organs and muscles. Many who get it had been infected by or were previously exposed to the virus that causes COVID-19.   
    • No problem. You are very welcome.  One last thing, when you remove the grip and take the weight out, before you re-grip the putter stand the putter up on the ground  as if you were setting up to putt. The putter stands up by itself like some of those other putter brands made to do that. Of course once you re-grip it won't but I discovered that by accident and thought it was cool. The majority of weight is really low in that putter. Good luck. 
    • Additionally, the folks that complained about lock-downs and shutting everything down also complain about the masks.  I think the masks are a good, reasonable middle ground position to try to keep businesses open and restore some version of normalcy.  If anything, folks should be happy to wear a mask as a reasonable burden and otherwise enjoy going about your day; it beats staying at home and not making a living or doing other things.
    • George Floyd wasn’t shot. Eric Garner wasn’t shot. So the same police that didn’t react with force when armed white people protested outside their capital lost that training when it came to George? Or were those cops off that day when he got murdered? How about the other 3 officers that did absolutely nothing to stop their co defendant? None had training. If the police treated everybody like they would want their child or spouse to be treated all of this would go away. That has zero to do with training.
