The PING Blueprint irons are $230 a club... that is absolutely ridiculous.

They are definitely not on my short list either.

They are nice, hit them last week, but too much club for me. Both style and price

The PXG / Bob Parsons effect?!?!?  He proved people will pay ridiculous prices based solely on marketing.  More expensive rarely equals better quality.

Yep. It’s a crock of you know what if you ask me.

 

I am surprised the die hard blade fans aren’t kicking and screaming that they aren’t 1020 steel.

 

I just don’t get it. It is impossible to grow the game for the majority of golfers if you keep hiking the prices up.

 

If I was looking to get someone into the game I don’t know how I could tell them that it is cool to spend more than $2000 on some sticks and they might not even like it. Sure there are used options and cheaper clubs, but this is getting a little out of hand.

 

My guess is $600 drivers, $350+ fairway woods, $250 Hybrids, and $200 per iron next year from a majority of the brands.

I haven't bought the latest release of anything in a number of years.  Still gaming everything in my bag except wedges and putter from at least 5 years ago.  I refuse to play that game.  Like the golf ball market, they are going to push people toward direct-to-consumer club manufacturers like Sub 70 and Hogan.

Weed whacking and grass cutting a few acres where poison Ivy is prevalent makes me do everything I can to keep it off of me.

Don't forget to wash everything in cold water. When I'm around it I immediately throw everything into the washer - handling them with gloves by the way.

Being the packrat that I am, I came across two tapes recently - a cassette of the very first rehearsal of the very first rock band I was in when I was 13, and a VHS of us rehearsing a few months later. I've spent the morning converting them to share with the other guys, who I'm still in touch with 30 years later. Pretty cool if you ask me.
