Prices are awesome at the show. Got a brand new Nike Covert 2.0 3 Wood for $140, and the tour version of the club which is usually $250 was about $165 brand new.

I mean, this was the one that I went to in Rosemont, IL so the prices may be different, but usually they're pretty good at these kind of things.

Yeah, i figured im looking to buy new set of Irons .

Probably Rocket Bladez as i feel will be much cheaper then Speed Bladez ands im a 10 Handicap and sure wouldn't notice a huge difference.

Currently i use 10 year old Taylormades i love them but feel equipment has gotten better so about time i upgrade from hand me downs :P

Golf shows are good but nothing is cheaper than ebay. I get all of my clubs from there for the most part. Did a search and in 10 seconds already found a cheaper example http://www.ebay.com/itm/TaylorMade-RocketBladez-Tour-Iron-Set-NEW-/131111527355?_trksid=p2054897.l4275 free shipping as well.

I can tell you that if you're looking for RocketBladez wait for the golf show. I live in Ontario Canada and just went to one today and there were several Rocketbladez sets for $400. I can only assume the prices will be better than that in the states.

The sponsoring golf shop(s) will usually be trying to clear out the previous year's models. So, good prices overall.

Also, you may find a "garage sale" section where wholesalers try to clear out trade-ins, and some second-tier golf sets (new). If you bought the Cleveland CG16 GW and SW, you might be able to find an almost new matching LW for $50 (or, maybe not).

On occasion, one of the manufacturer's reps will announce a price cut for last year's stuff. And, the reps sometimes will give you a bonus on your trade-in if you buy at the show.

Golf shirts starting at $10.

    • There still seems to be a bit of a disconnect between his explanation of the situation and the shot that he actually played......just doesn't add up that he hit pretty much a perfectly paced shot with the "belief" that that ball was  sitting way down and maybe even slightly plugged.....just doesn't look to me that he was trying to gouge out a shot that is sitting way down........as Erik said on the first page, there is a huge difference between a ball sitting all the way down and one that is sitting up even a 1/4" 
    • So? I'll take what may be the minority view here… but so what? You said the kid was young, so I'm picturing, I don't know, a 7-year-old kid. At this point, the father's main "goals" should really just be "let the kid whack a few balls, see if he has some fun." What you see as "a few fundamentals" might overwhelm the kid. After all, look at the list you just posted and what sorts of corrections you'd have to make to fix all of those things… When I introduced @NatalieB to golf (granted, she was barely three), I cared about roughly three things: That she stood on the left side of the golf ball (righty clubs) That she put her left hand above her right hand That she had fun whacking golf balls "somewhere in the right general direction" That's it. Every "fundamental" that came after that was a result of her expressing a desire to get better. The last thing I'd have thought to do was to give her a list of a bunch of "fundamentals." That sounds like the opposite of fun. The most important thing a parent can do to help their kids develop a passion for golf is to make sure they have fun around golf (on the golf course, at the range, etc.), particularly early on.
    • Thanks for all the advice. Its definitely more a case of wondering if my distance is likely to increase rather than worrying about it.  At the moment I just want to keep working on a reliable and repeatable swing that gives me a straight shot.  Once I've got that I can think about other things. The point about not fully trusting the swing yet is not something I had thought about before, but I think there may be something in that - repetition and practice is the answer to that I guess. Those distances are already in yards I'm afraid :)
    • Kiawah Island is even worse, I'm sure… it's about a 30-minute drive under regular circumstances onto the island and out to the course, let alone during the PGA Championship.
    • I would like to add that you made sure to convert the meters into yards (add an extra 10% or so to the numbers), right?  Otherwise, those are respectable numbers for someone only started their golf journey. FWIW, as a 58 year old who started playing golf in their mid-40s, I don't have a lot of distance (driver 210-240y, 7i 130-140y and PW 95-105y), but I do enjoy the game very much, did take lessons and improved my swing considerably after I did.
