I think it’s tough to get courses hard and fast enough to be a links course where you can play it along the ground as an option. We may make courses that look links-ish, but you have to play it through the air like any other course.
in 1994 I saved and sold several items to purchase my first new set of irons, Ping Zing 2 (3-PW). I was working 3 jobs including one at a golf course so I got PUD, but was still a big purchase. Actually had to sell my old clubs my dad gave me to afford them, so I had to go about 3 weeks playing my buddies 1971 Hogan blades.
I have never had to pay full price for a piece of golf equipment thank goodness.
