I am a Principal Consultant at a firm which specializes in consulting for government transportation agencies and their customers. About half of my work is in the area of requirements gathering and high-level design for new computer systems, the rest of it includes business development, chipping in on some policy projects, and mentoring junior project managers in quality control and relationship management.

I work in the IT world. I started building computers in my garage, sold computer [outside sales] for small retail computer outlets. Got into networking [anyone remember Novel 2.11?] and began contracting my services. [ what we will do to feed our golf habit!] Ended up in Tucson, Az. for 2 1/2 years on a 90 day contract...I must say if you ever get a chance to do a 90 day contact in Tucson, do it! Winters found me skiing in the mornings and getting my golf fix in the afternoons. Due to health issues, I havn't done much as far as full time, for the last couple of years, but the best gig I have is with the Southern Texas P.G.A. I keep thier network and desktops running for green fees!! Haven't paid a green fee for over 5 years and I have golf all the best courses in Southern Texas...

    • Day 308 - October 31, 2020 Played 18 at Bedford Springs with a small group of TST people.
    • Day 130.  I had a good hour in my practice room (off a mat, real balls, into a net, indoors).  I hit quarter shots with a 56 degree wedge and with an 8-iron, then trouble shots and full swings with a 6-iron.  
    • I hit through a bag of G410's today my playing partner had ( we were almost alone out there and hit multiple balls). Besides being disturbingly thick , the offset made me over draw or hook everything, unless I tried to fade them, in which case they may have gone straight. Not for me. But he shot a 75 playing his first ball on every hole. Me? Hell no. I shot 86 with him conceding putts I had a 50% chance of holing.
    • As other stated, Welcome! This is my response to your first paragraph. Agree with other responses above. Will respond regarding my experience/views with epoxy/ferrules/golf shaft, etc in another response. IMO Quality control with possibly a higher quality material makeup is one key discriminator between the cheaper references (in price$/materials) vs the more expensive. Not a guarantee but in most cases/brands there are design qualities combined with superior materials (i.e. low quality zinc material component club head vs a 1025 carbon steel/431 stainless steel/17-4 stainless steel/and many varieties of titanium/carbon fiber golf club head, etc) .I have purchased OME brands (Ping/Callaway/TM, etc) and when I measured loft/lie they were spot on or off ~1 deg vs a set of Top Flites a friend bought that were order of magnitude off (like 4,5,6 all within 1 deg loft). Component club heads from Maltby/Golf Works and Wishon -- again -- spot on (always) vs knockoff components (to be fair 50/50 in my experience -- little better than boxed sets). I am not against boxed sets as my boys for junior golf started with boxed sets (Callaway and/or PING) and they were near perfect. Its the adult sets that I recommend people proceed with caution. Another key that affects costs may be the engineering design that drives possibly unique materials to be combined to produce a certain type higher quality club head. Does that guarantee you a better game? -- maybe/maybe not at beginner level -- but many argue about this, I will not here but attempt to share from my experiences from the materials/quality of the clubs.  Where would I recommend a cheap/or lower cost boxed set? IF you are  high hncp once a month golfer that does not practice --- imo save your money and buy a boxed set of matching clubs--but do your research best you can so you get quality(after all there is a difference in a 6 iron into a green vs a 8 iron -- those clubs need to be different to work as designed (again I will refer to Top Flight boxed set my friend purchased years ago). My comments above come from someone that has built/repaired and learned to fit (with/without swing monitors/video) for over 35 years. There are plenty of quality used OEM brand equipment and comparable components from Golf Works or Wishon, etc. that are made from quality and/or premium materials with good engineering design qualities that are as affordable as a cheap boxed sets that has most likely been mass produced/put together with less than desirable quality control and consistencies. Last let me say I firmly believe in quality instruction combined with fittings to build a top notch set that meets your needs/capabilities over time vs going out first and buying either economy or high end. Just my opinion. There is a great used golf club market in which there are some great deals but I would want to know what I fit to before investing. There are relationships in place between many instructors/fitters (some do both) and I believe that is an avenue to not only improve your game but invest wisely.
