    I can get 50% off a set off Golf Clubs...what should I get?

    My friend's parents are best friends with a guy who owns a country club/pro shop. He can get me whatever I want at cost...which comes to about 50% off. I am thinking about a set of Callaway irons with a Big Bertha driver and callaway sand wedge. I just started to play Golf, but this is an opportunity I cannot pass up. I need some golfing experts to advise me here. What do you think?

    Rush I highly recommend a set of Tommy Armours...

    I've owned 2 different sets and they to me are the

    best irons I've ever hit hands down and usually they

    are alot cheaper then say Callaway or Taylor Made

    or almost any other big name golf company irons...

    Driver I'd go Taylor Made 500 series or the 420 burner

    or the newest Callaway Big Bertha Driver is pretty good...

    definitely agreeing with fitnessNY...........i just bought a set of ping blade i3's and its rediculous how awesome they are. They have increased my distance immensly. I went from a 150 yrd 7 iron, to now hitting it around 175-180 and my 8 iron to around the 160 mark.......incredible. You willing to hook anyone else up with a set??

    Rush, if you are a beginner I would have a talk to the pro who you will be buying the clubs from and let him advise you. Blades are definitly out as they are way to hard to hit for a beginner. You definitly need something with Cavity Backs of some kind. Also talk to hime about shafts as well, you can have steel or grafite. Steel is more accurate but you cant hit them as far as graphite. Callaway VFT's are great. If you can get japanese steel shafts tha is the best of bothe world, with the accuarcy of steel and the flexibility of graphite. The pro should also fit the clubs for you. Everyone hits the ball differently and are of different heights, so ask him abou that as well. Good luck !!

    Titlest or Cleveland.... better made irons and better feel that any other iron I have ever used... Do they have used clubs? Id borrow them for a bit and see what you like.

    You could give me King Midas's own set of golden golf clubs signed by Jack Niclaus, Arnold Palmer special editions, and I would still shank every time.

    Ping makes good clubs. If you are getting them at cost don't buy a cheap set. Get some good sh*t.

    i'm a fan of the callaway x series irons msyelf. i like the heavier head. makes you feel like you're more in control (maybe it's just b/c i'm too strong for the other irons ??)

    custom fit - get the shaft fitted to your height / stance / etc. - what kind of shaft you want (stiff or graphite)

    how do they custom fit these clubs? do i need to physically be there to get them fit? from what i hear its the old men who use the graphite, so i will go with the regular iron clubs...

    Bro make sure you go with steel shaft for the irons...
    Just trust me on that part... I'd also see if you can
    get a demo set of the X-16's before buying them...
    My boy has them and I tried them a few weeks ago
    and hated them, the iron heads are to heavy IMO...
    I just hated the feel of the clubs...

    Ping irons, Great Big Bertha driver and fairway woods, Mizuno wedges, Ping putter.

    Ultimately, you should always hit clubs before you buy them. This way you will know if they are right for you and you can have them fitted to your swing speed, height, bal trajectory and hand size.

    it really depends on how much you are willing to spend......If you want to get of a little cheeper and still get some nice clubs look into nike or mizuno....if money in no object go with the callaway vft's and the erc driver.

    You can get used to most irons with practice but pay attention to the driver shaft and loft. For a beginner I would look at reg. flex shaft and 10* loft or more.
