Just purchased the following for post surgery golf being that I am a USAF Veteran I thought they would be appropriate.  

Titleist T400 irons. I haven’t gotten them yet, but they are on order!

Bought a US Kids golf set and pink hello kitty balls for my daughter.  It's for her 3rd birthday so i'm just hoping she likes golf as much as her dad.

How in the world did you swing that price?  I've been looking at getting the G15 irons as well and have seen some for the price you paid for all that.  Did you trade in your old stuff?

OK, details:

The G15 4 wood ($90) is used but looked like new, a no brainer.

The Taylormade R11 ($90) is my clubs demo that does have a nasty skymark but thanks to that matte white head it only shows up indoors for some reason but still hits great.

The Callaway sandwedge ($40) is brand spanking new with the old grooves was simply a club that didn't sell well and in the 50 percent off discount bin.

Now the Ping irons ($325) I simply can't explain. When I walked in Saturday my teacher (the club pro and shop manager) who has been after me for over a year to replace my shafts mentioned that he just got in a new set and he would sell them to me at his cost. Perhaps he figures that I spend enough there that the loss is justified, who knows? I didn't want to go fishing for information, just handed him my credit card and said thank you!
Add tax and it all came to $599, I consider myself very fortunate

I only picked up some tees, but what prompts me to comment here was my observation about how the golf retail business is still doing in the economy.   I went to the San Diego-area Golf Galaxy and noticed that their inventory levels were way down.  They've taken out some club displays so there weren't nearly as much selection on the floor.   They also had taken out a row or two of shelving in the shoes and training aids section, and also cut the shelving down from about 8-10 feet high (with inventory stacked up on top) to shelving units only about 4-5 feet tall without much inventory in stock.

All this inventory reduction isn't just because they've been moving product in the spring and were short - these were long term changes in store layout reflecting that they must be stocking at least 20-30% less product than they used to.      Kind of depressing.

A pair of Ecco Causal Cool II shoes so that my feet won't hurt anymore, they fit like a glove

Also, did not buy, but fell in love with the Mizuno MP-63 irons, I will not be able to afford to secure this love affair until next spring, but it will be worth it.

I traded in my old driver for

16120_Callaway_Diablo_Octane_Driver_.jpg

They gave me $40 for my 2006 Big Bertha 460. The new Diablo Octane was down to $199 from $299. Got it for $159.

I then had all my clubs including the new driver regripped with

I got Henry-Griffitts OS-1 Irons from 3-pw and a Henry Griffits "Sizzle Milled" 51 degree wedge.

It will take around 7 days to get them in my hands and I am anxious.

I was playing off the rack Callaway X-18's and I measured 4 up.  I knew I was upright but not 4 up.

I can't link direct to the clubs but if you care to see here they are.

LOL, OK, so at least I'm not the only one who does this! I have picked up several just to play with, swing around the house, etc.  Callaway Forged X Tour, 2009 X Forged, X-22, X-20, and a Mizuno MP-32.... all demo 6 irons.  And all for between $3.50 and $5.00.

Was this recently? If so, they owe you a dozen pentas. Right now they're buy 2 dozen, get a dozen free.

    • I was thinking “liquid metal” was what someone meant to be “hot melt”.
    • @Shorty, @boogielicious, and @iacas thank you for adding well-reasoned and factual statements to counter @Billy Z’s nonsense.   While I tend to agree to a limited extent that people can be overly sensitive these days, “Indian” and the equivalent (“red skins” and the like) are, as all of you pointed out, offensive—and not just a nitpicky level of sensitivity—but offensive to all reasonable people, given historical context and usage. Therefore, I think the ball club made the right decision. However, I’m not a fan of “guardians,” but I’m happy to see the change. 
    • This nails it. And if he read this he’d think..’yeah…another minion.’ 
    • In the video, one of them had #7 as their favorite hole 🙂 Then sadly he liked #9 Here are my course reviews... Lac La Belle - 6.0/10 Visually this course is good. The mix of fescue, bunkers, and marshy areas outline the holes nicely. There is a lot of target golf going on here. Some of the holes were a bit wonky, like hole #2. Also, the 600 yard par 5 was kind of bad. I am just glad that the fescue was not thick and tall, it was very playable from. If not, this course would be unbearable. The massive putting green with basically a putt putt course was really fun. In the end, it's a good course, but I would not enjoy playing this course a lot. Just too much target golf.  Course Layout - 5/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Lawsonia - 7.0/10 I really enjoyed this course. It has a unique style that isn’t around my area. Holes 1 thru 8 were good. For me, a bit too many blind tee shots. Holes 9-18 were more open from the tee. Luckily, there wasn’t much in the terms areas the ball would end up unplayable on the holes with blind tee shots. If you aimed over the mounds, and hit a decent shot you would have a shot at the green. There was a good variety of holes. This course was really fun to play.  Course Layout - 7/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 6/10, Clubhouse - N/A Mammoth Dunes - 8.0/10 A visually stunning course. It is much more of a friendly course than Sand Valley due to the green complexes having more areas to feed the ball into the green on errant shots. Each hole was like a problem to solve off the tee even though there was wide landing areas. I really enjoyed playing this course. The first tee shot of the day was really awesome teeing off from an elevated tee over looking over the expanse of the property. It really gives you a sense of the grand scale of the course. The bins of water on the course were nice since  you have to walk the course.  Course Layout - 8/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Sand Valley - 8.5/10 A visually stunning golf course. The green complexes are tough with a premium on hitting the flat areas or areas with backstops. Balls would routinely run off the edges where severe slopes were located at. When you miss the green, you usually had a few options to play. Mostly, the high risk through the air or try to putt it to a spot on the green for a longer putt. I think the back nine is much stronger than the front nine. Overall, I prefer the test of this course.  Course Layout - 9/10, Course Condition - 8/10, Visual - 8/10, Clubhouse - N/A Bonus - Sandbox - 10/10 This little gem of a course is just a joy to play. Each green complex is unique and with the variety of pin placements and tee boxes changing daily, each time playing is slightly different. I thoroughly looked forward to starting every day at the Sandbox.
