Which golf clubs should I buy?
« on: March 30, 2019, 01:25:09 am »
I agree that purchasing slightly used or clubs that are a couple of model years old is smart. (I took advantage of a fitting by a Ping rep at a local course’s demo day and then bought the same clubs on eBay for a quarter of the price.) I don’t agree with buying clubs off the rack. The best money you spend on golf clubs is the cost of a good, proper fitting. Your height, swing speed, swing type, stance and so much more make a huge difference when it come to getting the best clubs for you and your game. One man’s fitted clubs are just that: one man’s fitted clubs. And there is no standardization of shafts, so “regular “ or “stiff” means nothing. I recommend three things: 1) try out lots of different drivers, irons, hybrids, wedges and woods at a place like Golf Galaxy or PGA Superstore—or when a local course has a demo day; 2) find a fitter and get the right kind of help; and 3) be up front about how much you can comfortably spend.

Great, thanks. I’ll print out this advice and put it in my wallet for the next set of clubs I buy.

I been playing in Leagues for years, and when i started out it was Wilson.  The stiff shafts are for distance and the Senior flex is for old fvckers with out club speed.  I could never hit Pings but if you go Ping they have to fit the shaft and angles for your ass, can't buy them used. Then I played Adams golf which is now the Taylor Made. I will totally stick with the Taylors, Not super expensive as Ping or the Calloway - but for me it works best and being stoned or drunk as fvck when you play is all that matters anyways.  :drink :drink :drink

We have a pacle here called Play It Again Sports, awesome pacle to get clubs. I got a set of Titleist clubs there, the woods are all T2 and T3 metal shaft, irons are 690 AND it also came with a 7 wood and a niblick. The putter was kinda shitty so its somewhere in my shed. I had a good putter anyway that ive used for years. Anyhoo, $300 for the set. And they threw in a Titleist ball cap.
