alright, i got about a grand or so for graduation, most of it needs saved, but i can spend a little of it

right now i have a 3-PW set of irons from a company called Lions, a 3 and 5 wood from the same company, a Ping Anser 2i putter, and a Callaway Hawkeye driver.

for 60 dollars i can get a student pass at the local elks club, normally 20 for 18 holes walking, so 3 times out and its paid for itself. because of that, i was considering buying some golf shoes and a new bag. the bag needs to have dual straps and a stand built into it.

any suggestions on shoes or bag? what looks good and has those features. Thanks

I may be able to help you spend some of it. I have a like new(used 3 9-hole rounds) Callaway STS bag in Red/Black for sale for $70 + shipping. It sold in Dick's for $99.99 and has been used for about 3 weeks. Perfect condition, well taken care of, no rips or tears. Complete with rain cover and cooler pouch.

My advice: Spend $150 on a good lightweight stand bag (Ogio or Sun Mountain). Spend $100 on some good waterproof shoes (FootJoy or Nike). Spend $100 on a couple lessons, and get advice from the pro on what irons to buy. Then plan on spending $500 on a good set of last year's irons (Callaway X-16, perhaps).

That leaves $250 for more lessons, or stuff like golf balls and gloves. You'll get the most out of the lessons!

Have fun, and good luck!

I was also looking at buying an Ogio stand bag and I stumbled across this deal today:

It's the Ogio 2004 Novak Stand Bag for only $59.99! Hopefully, if you like this particular bag, this deal can help you out and save you a decent amount of money. Good luck to you on your quest to spend your graduation money.

Great find on that bag JEWMAH. What a steal. It almost makes me want to buy a new bag. As far as shoes, I would reccomend somthing from the Nike SP line. The SP Saddle looks like a traditional shoe, but feels like an athletic shoe. If you are walking, make sure you get some shoes that feel good. I bought them last year and they are the best shoe I have ever had. The nice thing is that if you are going to play somewhere that requires nicer atire, they go great with pants or shorts. Regular athletic style ones (which I always wore prior to these) look kind of silly with kahkis. They go for about $79.00.

k, i ended up buying a Oryx stand bag for 50 bucks new, and a pair of Footjoy Dryjoys for 130, i ended up talking him down from 160 of the msrp on the footjoys, so i was happy, the bag i have is very light, although i am looking into getting alot of nike stuff now. found a few of their balls on the course today and of course hit them, one of them seemed like i hit it with a baseball bat

    • Last Monday I experienced a very slow front 9, taking at least 2 1/2 hours. 3 riders and 1 walking, and we, a twosome, waited at every shot, except the tee, where they all teed off before we could get close enough to ask to play through. The walker wasn't very good, often hitting his drive 100-150 yards. They all played from the blues, and the walker would tee off last. The riders would take off, often leaving the walker behind to fend for himself. Finally, after a couple of holes, one of the carts would hang back, help look for a ball, etc. When they reached the green, the walker would often park his clubs on the wrong side, and after holing out, would retrieve his clubs and have to walk back across the green to get to the next tee. Did I mention the walker also moved in slow motion? Conserving energy, maybe? At the 10th, a par 5, while we're waiting to take our approach shots to the green, the walker holes out, shake hands, and heads back to the clubhouse. After that, we never came close to catching them again. Finished in 4 hours total.  
    • I break 90 now and then, and I think I am starting to notice the commonalities. 1. Don't go OB.  Just don't.  If it's a reasonable likelihood, think about club choice.  I often play a 310 yard hole with OB all the way down the right, and it's the first hole.  It's also a little downhill.  A bad 5 wood gets me within a 9 iron or less, a good one a sand wedge, or even lob wedge.  I don't need driver on that hole.  Without the OB, I think I'd play driver, but first tee, there's just no real benefit. 2.  When driver is the club, hit it.  Closer is better.  But see #1. 3.  Get out of the sand in one.  To anywhere.  Green is better, out is critical. 4.  If I'm within 10 feet of the green, I need to be thinking up and down.  Won't always happen, but those are important shots.  And where I get a lot of my pars, "almost" GIRs. 5.  I agree with not trying the hero shot, but not wimping out, either.  Know what you can do, and go for it. 6.  Three putts are bad, but don't beat yourself up over a three putt from 50 feet.  (Actually don't beat yourself up over anything, let it go, and move on.) 7.  I have found in my best rounds, I block out a lot of the noise.  Take a breath before each shot.  Focus.  Not every second, but in the time around the shots. 8.  If something feels wrong, back off.  The grass grabs on the backswing, stop!  It should not happen a lot, but once your head is unhappy, bad things are in store. 9.  Be aggressive, but not stupid.  If you can carry 220 on your best shot, and you need 210, don't do it.  I think you need to have a 80 or maybe even 90 percent probability of success.  The two shots that failure is likely to cause eat into your margin pretty quickly.      
    • Nope. That is troll-level phrasing there.
    • Touche.  On the "no" voter thing.  But like I said... feeding the sharks.  I'm trying to find a middle ground for you guys but it seems like human lives come in second place to your need for total accuracy and fear of inconvenience.
