I havent played golf for the better part of 10 years. used to play a decent bit growing up just kinda got out of it and would like to start back. the clubs i have from back in the day are going to be replaced there old and dont really fit. I have been looking alot about reviews and all that and from what i gather the Ping G5 iron sets seem to be a great value as i would like to stay below 250-300 for the time being. Alot of the stuff i read on them was from 2010-2011 and they seemed to be a go to set for high handicappers and beginners. Would yall recommend these or what are some other options? Would yall try to go with a newer g series of the Pings for any reason? Im not completely set on Ping but I know they are good clubs. I have no idea what to do for driver/fairwaywoods/hybrids. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks - i mainly just need something that is going to be forgiving and wont break the bank

+1 for the user name. You can't go wrong with a set of pings IMO. Adams makes good clubs for around that price as well. Not sure about Taylor mades but if you could find some for around that they will probably be good as well. Stay away from the clubs with the check mark on them.
No I did not lose a sig bet, but I am really really really ridiculously good looking.
Still doesn't beat poonslayergator... with a name like that, you just know he gets tons of pussy and is really kewl
fsufsu said... I've got about 10 great stories on Lane but all you need to know is he will never be a loser, that's for sure.
More pussy than I could shake a stick at, and by stick I mean my penis.
ya ive looked at rockbottom golf and some other used club sites. i just dont know which sets are geared more for what im looking for, beginner/hasnt played in 10 yrs. very forgiving etc.
Do you live in Auburn? If so, let me know and I'll try to respond soon with someone who can lead you in the right direction. Obviously, I'm wondering because of your avatar. A friend of mine manages the food and beverage for Grand National (RTJ) in Opelika, and they have a great new club pro. My buddy is probably an 8 handicap, and this new pro impressed him pretty quickly and got him in some better clubs.
Cavity backs of course but i'd stay away from the better golf balls to then. i dont say that because of losing them (although it is one reason) but more because they will make a bad shot worse.
Edit: have no idea why I sai blades.

thanks for the offer man, but unforntunately i now live in memphis. im gonna try to go to some golf shops this week but never know about whos working there compared to a pro on a big course who you know is reliable
Gotcha. It was a shot in the dark. I grew up on Lake Martin and have a lot of friends that went to AU. A good club pro will help you out a lot even if you're just shopping for clubs. Go to a few nice local courses and see if any of them are having sponsors come in with clubs. You can try out several sets for free if so. Otherwise, I can't help you. I love golf, but I suck at it.
I would look at the Ping G5, G10 and G15s (might be able to find a set close to your budget), and the Callaway lines (Razr X, etc.) for forgiveness. Your dollar will go further on ebay if you know what model you want. I would avoid TaylorMade clubs and all blades/tour irons until you get your swing back.
Adams still makes pretty good fairways/hybrids. You may also want to check Gigagolf.com for a budget option that will hold you until you are ready to splurge on some name-brand clubs.
