    New golfer looking for clubs

    I agree with most of this. A box set right now is the way to go. Since you've only... When you go the used route, you have to put everything together. You have to figure out which clubs to have. The rule is up to 14, but it doesn't mean you have to have 14 clubs in your bag. I did this for my son-in-law last year, piecing together a good used set. Started out a with a TaylorMade Rocketballz 10.5 driver in excellent condition from letgo, then added a few Taylormade Aeroburner fairway woods and hybrids also in excellent or very good condition from Global Golf. Just on those clubs, I spent over $250 of my $400 budget and I still needed irons, wedge(s), a putter and bag. By going with a box set, you'll have everything you'll need from the start. This year when my wife wanted to learn the game, this is what I did. A Strata set. She has everything she needs now, and we can upgrade here and there as needed. But as you upgrade, don't throw them away. My son-and-law's first irons were a set of Wilson ProStaff AD's circa 2002 with graphite shafts which I bought at the thrift store for a $1 a club. After I regripped them, he hit those last summer and I later sold them for $50.
