Hey All,

Brand new to the site/forum, and I'm hoping for some help...looking to find a decent set of clubs so I can get back into playing with my father in law...I was an avid golfer many years ago, but never really invested in a quality set...I've been away from the game long enough to have no idea what's worth buying, what I can expect to pay, etc...can $300 buy me everything, or am I way off? I appreciate any info and guidance you can provide! Please note, I'm looking for LEFT handed clubs. Thanks so much!

Copa, welcome to TST!  For $300, you could get a quality iron set, slightly used on Ebay.  If you wanted a turnkey set for $300... Well the quality will be sacrificed.

If you are looking for a retailer who has deep golf discounts... Checkout: http://www.rockbottomgolf.com/

Let us know what you end up getting.  Hope you enjoy playing again!

I've done some looking around today, and I can tell I'm going to have to pay a bit more if I want to have a nice, complete set...any suggestions on best buys for the price??

I'm looking at starting with a set of Taylor Made Burner Plus irons...thoughts? Beyond that, is it possible to find a quality driver at or under $100? Thanks!

What is your idea of quality?  I have a Callaway FTiQ which was a top of the line driver in 2009 or 2010.  I picked it up for cheap with a sky mark.  I filled in the paint on the sky mark but its pretty easy to spot where I filled it in.

It is left handed.  I also have a ping G10 5W that I could throw in as well.

I would sell them both to you for $80 plus shipping.  They both have stiff flex shafts.  I have the Callaway head cover, but no HC for the 5w.

Buy a set of used Cobra irons off ebay

3100, fp, ssi

Ie there is a set of 3100 atm for $65.

All these supercede models were awesome.

Similarly a s2 or s3 driver can be had cheap.

Get a hybrid and putter you love and your good to go.

Check out global golf. 3balls. And callaway pre owned. All offer free shipping if u spend over 99 at 3balls. $199 at global golf. I find global golf to havr a wider selection of irons hybrids and wedges. I would say around $500 you could have a very solid set. Irons wedges driver and hybrid.

A great set of irons for around 130 - 150 is the Adams a7 set. It comes with 3 and 4 hybrids too. Very nice set for a great price. As for a driver if you are near one the pga superstores have a nice selection of used clubs .I picked up a Adams fast 12 with a ust shaft for 70 bucks.

    • If you can’t get there you can’t get there, but if improving a bit knocks it down from being your top priority piece, then there’s value in that. Can’t say too much having never seen your swing.
    • I recently signed up for 10 lessons with GOLFTEC, which includes 1.5 hours use of practice bays for each lesson. These folks claim to have data from many hundreds of PGA TOUR pros to substantiate their various "checkpoints". Most are routine but the one new one (for me) is what they're calling "shoulder bend" at the top of the backswing.  They claim the pros have 0 degrees or, even better, negative a few degrees. This category is supposedly "correlated" with maximizing "power".  To achieve this position it correspondsponds to Plummer's "Spine Extension" in the DVD's which, along with Rotation (Torso and Hips) and Side-Bending yields the optimum "top of backswing" position (for a S&T backswing).  Question #1:  Does this make sense? Question 2: Is this demonstrably (i.e. scientifically) valid?    Though I'm 77 yo I can still reach this position but not easily.  To get there I must rotate my right hip >/=45 degrees which straightens my right leg a lot.  Question # 3:  Since I never got there before does anyone have a suggestion for automatizing this movement before I reach 100 yo? And broader yet:  Question # 4: What  are the experiences of other members who have done Golftec?
    • I don't remember the telecast, Miller didn't mention the US not practicing enough at all? I thought he did. https://golfweek.com/2018/10/21/golf-tv-was-johnny-miller-really-tvs-mr-nice-guy/
    • This is a little tricky to say which is right and why they are different. Could both be wrong or could both be right. First I will say remember that the clubs you were fitting are different and have different specs. Stock length on the 5s are longer than the 2s. Swing weights are also slightly different and static weights are different. 100g DG shaft vs a 112g PX (speaking rough cut weights) also could make differences with lie angle. All this is to say that I think you need to fit each club (ie set) on it's own after picking the shaft and head you want. Because those two things will impact the lie fitting. As a club maker I have also come to the conclusion after years that iron length need be far less rigid in it's measurements. If you feel more comfortable with longer clubs so that you are less hunched over in the short irons, then go with that. A half inch longer iron is not going to make much difference in your accuracy game and if it feels more comfortable then go with it. Just make sure you factor in the weight changes in a longer club because that is way more important than length. After all that lock down the lie angles.
    • I didn't get to play or practice much this year and when I did I barely broke 100. It was so frustrating I thought about quitting, but I kept going for the exercise. I think golf is great exercise.  I played with a guy last year who was probably a 7 or so, anyway, he told me the lows in this game are pretty low, but you just have to ride them out. Eventually you find your stroke again.
