I'm not laughing, I'm in awe! 208 could be a world record?
Seriously, just take a break from it. You'll come back wanting to do it at some point.
This is what I thought as well, but I play okay now and enjoy the game.
$1850? No way, even when I do have disposable income, I'd buy them used and put in standard S300 shafts and Golf Pride grips if they aren't on them already. They're going to get all scratched up anyway.
I made the same decision last year..no regrets whatsoever...my attitude towards all things is far better..I took lessons also for 18 months, and practiced most days...in the end, I just accepted that some people like myself, have no ability to swing a club..and never will...as well, some of us dont have the temperment for playing lousy golf and enjoying it...there are always plenty of other things to take up ones time..
I hear you. Golf is expensive and family comes first.
I was lucky to score a barely hit set of MC102's for cheep! I wouldn't have paid $1850 for a whole set of irons. No way. That's a ton of rounds, beers and golf accessories with change left over!!
What I would really miss is ball speed data. No way to optimize a driver with out knowing ball speed. Two clubs might product identical shots in terms of ball flight, but one might go further on average because it has 1 mph more ball speed.
It might be harder for high handicap golfers just because of the variability in ball strike. It's tougher to weed through the bad strikes to get were a club would benefit them.
