Golf Sets or Golf Games ???

Golfer A, this golfer loves to buy new golf sets, Driver, irons, wood, putter, the latests in town or just to change clubs as he pleased. If he can sleep with his golf sets, he will. But he will not spend more than certain amount to play a good golf course, anything more than his home club, he will give a miss. He continue to change clubs but only play at his home club. Reason:-  rather pay for a good golf sets and keep it than to spend money for a game which last 4 to 5 hours.

Golfer B, this golfers owns only one or two golf sets he loved, he would not spend money to buy the latest or the best golf sets whichever he can afford. But he is willing to bring his beloved golf sets and played in Top golf course beside his own club. He is willing to travel oversea and spends lots of money for golf tour to exotic golfing destination. His golf sets are almost 20 years old.....

Which type of golfer are you ? golfer A and B are just fictional characters for discussion.

A little more *A* than *B* - I buy more clubs than I should(but havent updated most clubs in ages), play 90% of my rounds at my home course, but will play other courses when I can get people together. I will not travel world wide to golf because I try to stay away from flying whenever possible

I'm a full-on B. Been playing for four years, and only owned one set of clubs other than the crappy starter set I got for < $100.  Would much rather pay to play than chase the latest equipment.

(Btw, not sure if you can still make this thread a poll but it would be a great poll question...)

I'm a hybrid, while I don't have the latest and greatest clubs, but I tend to not be more that a generation behind.  I don't play one course, I like playing numerous courses over the year, but I'm not one to spend $100 on a round, I'd rather spend $50 on two rounds.

I'm definitely B.  I buy new clubs when I wear out my old ones, and I'll pay the cost of a new driver to play a course if I really want to play it.

I'm more A* golfer with a little bit of B*. I have a membership and play there majority of the time but I do like playing other courses when I can. But I look for deals online to play other courses. I really don't want to spend more than $60 for a round. But I play enough rounds where I have to play other courses for a challenge or I get bored.

More of an A, but I tend to stay cheap all around in golf. Even staying cheap is a relatively expensive part of the monthly budget. Part of the leaning toward A is because [LIST] [*] I haven't yet fallen in love with many clubs yet. It's hard to resist buying something else on occasion. But it's always for a reason, I don't mess with what isn't broken. [*] I'm not very good yet. I'd hate to waste one of my crappy days on a gorgeous, expensive course. Likewise, I can't appreciate the best a course has to offer yet. [/LIST] Once those two settle (eg, I find my ideal equipment and I improve my consistency), I'll probably swing more towards the B side. But we'll see.

I'm both. I like looking at new equipment but I don't actually buy anything because I'm very comfortable with what's in my bag now. I mostly like knowing what any new equipment has to offer.

I don't have a membership or a specific home course nor do I take exotic golf trips (at least not yet). I try to play close to home or within a 30 minute driving radius mostly because of my current situation. Doesn't matter if it's a good golf course or just a cheap muni.

Definitely B.  The set I have is the only set I've bought.  I started with a hand-me-down set from my dad.  Never changed it until about a year or so ago.  The putter was the last one that I changed from the hand-me-down set.

Both, right now more A than B because I'm not quite good enough to fully appreciate the great courses that are out there.  Once I get the handicap lower I expect to be more B than A.

I am inbetween. I don't like to buy new clubs ever year, but every 3-5 years isn't to bad. Thats usually wedges, irons, and driver. The putter will stay with me for a long time, i like the one i have.

The whole thing was worded a bit weird for me.......For that reason, I say neither because I don't know what buying 'golf sets' means...LOL

All kidding aside, golfers aren't grouped like you suggest above.

Roughly speaking:

Grouping players who spend lots of clubs that only play 1 course/and or cheap courses... ....VS.......players who spends little on clubs but spend lots on playing nice courses does not really compute.  Golfers can't be categorized that way...IMO

The premise isn't valid....golfers who spend freely on equipment tend to spend freely on where they play....and vice versa.

If that's true I guess I'm the exception - I spend freely on where I play but spend hardly anything on equipment.

Granted, very few people are going to be completely on one end of the spectrum or the other, but still I've been interested in the replies.

    • If he was gay would it matter that he used that word? Again same premise, gay man missed putt yells out in anger not to anyone just yells out in frustration the word. Does that make a difference to the reactions? 
    • Most amateurs myself included are not good enough to swear about a bad shot. I mean what’s really on the line?  Pro’s on the other hand have a lot at stake. Losing a sponsor is a pretty big deal. Will it impact Justin? Initially, but it will wear off over time. But as some already stated, the noise generated from the crowds bring out the comments from the players loud and clear.  Technology could fix it yes but it would look and sound edited.   A Gentleman’s Game? Not lately!  Compared to other sports it was probably nothing if it was just the F-Word but adding the homophobic after was the deal breaker.  Pretty sure Titleist won’t dump him.
    • We appreciate it! ...if you charged $200 an hour, I’d be SOL for the next 10 years or so
    • I just recently bought the book from Amazon. Very interesting concept. Tom Saguto has a ton of videos on the subject & has an online golf school. He recently attended a Stack & Tilt seminar in Florida hosted by Mike & Andy. Tom's videos are on u-tube.
    • Day 11 - Worked on post impact follow through as I tend to stop rotating and making chicken wings.  Was able to do late setting sun chips/pitches where I could barely make out the flagsticks in the fading light.  Went to “see it/feel it/trust it” mode focusing on what I am feeling thru the setup, backswing, downswing and follow thru.....
