  1. Beginner Golf Clubs

    If you don’t feel ready to do a fitting then at least go to a golf and hit as many clubs as they let you. Find ones you feel you get good results with and then shop around on the internet to get the best deals. eBay, Rockbotton Golf, Second swing and Global Golf have worked well for me in the past. You can find some really good deals on 1 or 2 year old models and used clubs.
  2. What's your cheapest club per yard?

    My 40$ 3w. I hit it almost as far as my $99 driver.
  3. My son is treating me to a round of golf at Cog Hill. My wife bought me a Torrey Pines quarter zip, hat and tee shirt. Guess I wasn’t good enough for a round at Torrey Pines.
  4. That’s how I buy my clubs. I’d rather do that and put the money toward playing more often.
  5. When your son out drives you.

    My 21 year old out drives by a lot. I find the fairway more so it evens things out.
  6. How would you play Augusta?

    Slowly so I could enjoy playing there as long as possible.
  7. I have a Tour Edge CB pro that I picked last year. It has really helped me.
  8. TopGolf - when you mix golf and alcohol

    I heard he pulled a Lucy and swallowed the ball right before the other guy was about to make contact which caused him to lose balance and he fell off the platform to the ground.
  9. Simulator vs the real thing

    I played on a simulator for the first time this year. It was a lot of fun on a cold winter day. It took me about 3 rounds to figure out the chipping and putting. I just had a hard time figuring out green speed.
  10. I love Golf!!

    I think twice a week and one other day at the range would be just about right.
  11. Fly Z deal!

    It is. The cheapest I've seen either one is around $150.
  12. Fifty-Nine

    He's having a pretty good couple weeks.
  13. Older And Playing Golf

    If I can stand I'll still play.
  14. How do you grip and swing your putter?

    I went mostly left hand low except on really long putts this year and I became more consistent. My second to last time out about half way through and for no real reason with my left hand I put the grip between my index and middle finger. I got really hot the rest of the round. I went out the next day tried it for the whole round. My results were really good ( for me) again. I've only been able to try it again on the carpet in the basement but who knows maybe I found something. Then again maybe not.
  15. Used clubs for beginner

    I second using eBay. I've had much more success finding better prices there than on the two sites you mentioned. I've never bought anything from Rockbottom Golf but have seen good prices there on equipment. The last bit of advice I'd give since you have a tight budget don't buy anything before you can demo it. You want to make sure a club works for you before you spend money on it.
