You could probably get a higher quality set of used clubs on hsolist for that or a little more. Make sure they are cavity back irons as they are much easier to get in the air and are more forgiving on mi[PoorWordUsage]s. I'd probably stick with steel shafts. I know everyone likes new stuff but when you can get used, high quality name brand clubs for anything less than $200 I think you should go for it. hsolist! It's a beautiful thing. Also check around at garage sales and auctions you will be surprised at what you will find.

like any other sport, you get what you pay for. These $100.00 sets are made of cheap iron, poor quality shafts and are inconsistent. I golfed with a guy who had some Fleet Farm irons with graphite shafts and he would hit his 6 iron 155 yrds and his 7 iron about 170 yrds and after about a year his shafts started to break. If you're just beginning, buy some used brand name cavity back irons and a 3 wood. You can tee off with a 3 wood, use it on the fairway and it's easier to hit. Once you graduate and get on someones payroll, you can upgrade.

Good luck, it's a great game.

Edit: This is weird, for some reason I was thinking you mentioned you were still in college, which prompted the "graduate" comment. Oh well, I'm blaming it on having a senior moment. crazy

Yes they will be fine for you and it won't hurt the pocket book to bad.

Plus the return policy at WallWorld is 2nd to none if you change your mind!

I used a cheap set for a few years at first. I would recommend checking out a sportmart also though. For just a few bucks more you can get a lot more clubs. Since some of the cheap starter sets only come with odd # irons.

Yep, buy a cheap set, beat the crud out of them, and then in a few years if you're still into golf get a better set.

    • Well, he was close on that one, because it certainly wasn't a debate.
    • Uncanny resemblance...
    • I have been going to golden meadows lately to work my dog so far we have shot 24 birds over him. One more time at the preserve before the season starts and we are itching to get out in the real fields!  
    • Wow do the unicorns fly in your fantasy too?
    • Would you like me to put sugar in your medicine to make it taste better?
    • Unless: If no candidate wins an absolute majority in the Electoral College, the election is decided by the House of Representatives. Thus, if Johnson were to win, say, Colorado while Trump and Clinton split all other electoral votes 50-50, the House would pick the winner. Given that Trump and Clinton are the most unpopular candidates in recent history, a divided House might compromise by selecting Johnson, a former two-term (Republican) governor of New Mexico.
    • It's probably going to be late this year. I got my itch scratched at Traxlers reserve in LeCenter today at least so that helps but really for me the pheasant season doesn't get into high gear until after deer season. Normally the first few weeks are too warm to be out a whole day with the dogs and there are too many corn fields in. By the 3rd week in November the temps have dropped and the corn is mostly out and that's when it gets better and of course first snow...... I am fairly optimistic about the bird populations this year. Obviously the rain we had was a wildcard and it's hard to say right now how that has impacted populations but there was a good group of birds that carried over from last season and the winter didn't take too many.
