    Hi 10big,

    I used to play golf competitively and here is my advice for a beginner to the sport

    1. Brand doesn't matter when you are starting out. Just find the clubs that fit your budget. But the good top brands are Callaway, Taylor Made, Mizuno, Titleist, Ping to name a few if you are wondering anyways.

    2. You don't need a whole set when you start out and learn. All you will need to bring to the range is a 3 wood and a 7/8 iron.

    3. Take formal golf lessons. You can find good teaching pros in the public golf ranges like Fort Bonifacio or Villamor (assuming you are based in Manila). And stick with the pro. Don't keep on changing teaching pros too often because each teaching pro has their own theory on what a perfect golf swing is.

    :)

    Hello, 10big.

    There are 2 shops in Goldcrest, Glorietta which sells 2nd hand golf clubs. You may also try the pro shops at the driving ranges, sometimes they have 2nd hand golf sets.
    If you plan to hire a pro to teach you, ask him if he could direct you to someone who is selling his golf set. Golfers kasi sometimes upgrade their golf clubs from the one who have a large sweet spot to those that are forged or blade. Sometimes naman they buy the latest golf clubs with the latest technology to improve their distance and/or accuracy.

    I agree with jayjay00, you only need to bring a few clubs in the driving range when you are starting out. Ako, 7 iron lang dala ko dati. Even now when i go to the range, i only bring a pitching wedge, 6 iron, and my driver.

    If you are buying 2nd hand sets, tingnan mo yung grips kung mukhang bago pa yung grips or kung matigas na.

    See you in the links.

    Calling all BOGs that golf and gulp. Let's play sometime in February or March. If someone could make arrangements for a tee time that would be nice.

    Go to Proline. For only 7-8Th you'd get a good set of brand new Spalding starter clubs complete with woods and putter. A bag might cost you 1,500, all weather glove at 400, wide brimmed hat at 200, shades at 99, plastic tees for 30, puruntong shorts at 500, swatch golf shoe at 2300. Then you're all set. For an extra 2300, you can get a fine Proline titanium driver, pero saka na yun. Never ever be swayed by advertisements. You can bend a pipe into a club and still play good golf. It's you, never the equipment.

    Practice till you can hit balls consistently forward, whatever the distance, basta abante, ok na. You're ready for the greens!

    At the range, a bag of 10-12 used balls for 100 (Nike pa!) Green fee mga 1000 sa mga military courses (mahal pag weekend). 400-500 sa caddie. Play until you feel you won't quit in the long run, only then should you invest heavily in the game.

    I've had my hand-me-down blade clubs since the day I started 9 years ago, and luckily never had the urge to buy new or branded, nor take lessons. Nakakapag-uwi din naman ng panalo kahit papaano... hehehe... :supergrin:

    Pero kung talagang kuripot ka, like me, go visit the second hand shops at Evangelista in Bangkal Makati. For only 2-3Th, me clubs, bag, putter, saka magasin ka na agad. Libre pa sumbrero pag nagkataon. Malapit yun sa tulay just opposite the Equitable PCI branch. Madami dun, tiyagain mo lang. Even the pro shops get their loot from there, as these come mostly from expats. If you're really lucky, baka callaway pa makuha mo.

    Hope this helps...

    Was in Shanghai and my friend, a golfer, bought a brand-new set of Callaway clubs plus a golf bag and all that for a very low price. Not orig. of course, but he uses them now and apparently they are good enough. Just an option.

    Callaway filed a lawsuit some years ago about Callaway knock offs coming from China. Be careful. These knock offs even have serial #'s.
    Best advice I could give you is get a starter set. Golden Bear, Spalding, Wilson. The PGA at a local club recommended Golden Bear by Jack Nicklaus, and my wife and I have been swinging these clubs for 3 years now and loving them.
    Used clubs are okay as long as you know what you are looking for.

    If you want, I could purchase a set of irons for you in the US or you may buy my set already in the Philippines.

    sir jerrytrini, i presume that the callaway knock offs from china look just the same. if so what is the major difference from the original ones? weight? material? durability? dimensions? how can you know???
