You have $1200 to spend on a full set of clubs...used or new doesn't matter. You have to make a complete 14 club set. Driver, 3 wood, hybrids, iron set, wedges and a putter. How do you spend it? Watched Rick Shiels spend $500 on a full set used. Just wondering how you would allocate the funds. Which clubs would you choose? What club would be the most expensive? How would you decide?Figured this would be a fun exercise. Would you stick to the same brand? Would you mix and match?

Very interesting!

 

It's definitely possible to get a new box set from Golf Town, etc for less than a grand. Would take the rest and buy a putter and wedge or 2 to round it out.

 

If I went used I'd be hitting up eBay looking for some 712 MBs... The rest of the bag I would base off how much I have leftover after that lol

I'd look for the following:

 

Driver F7+ used/demo

 

3 wood Taylormade SLDR TS (love this club)

 

Or

 

Cobra Baffler 3 wood

 

Ping Rapture 2 iron

 

3-9 Titleist 680 - 690 - 712 one of those models

 

Or

 

Cobra Fly Z Pro 3-9

 

47, 53, 57, 61 Cobra King Wedges

 

And a 8802 style putter

 

I think this could all be had for under $1200

Oh man where do I start? I know mine would be a mix set. Probably close to the same setup I have with a few tweaks.

 

M2 driver

M2 15 degree fairway

Hogan PTX irons 22-46 degree

Hogan TK15 50 52 58 degree

Nike converge putter

 

Pretty much the same setup but with an upgrade on woods.

I've got $600 in my current bag counting the bag but that's because I won the irons and kept the wedges from a test.

 

It's an interesting challenge - I'm sure my bag won't be that exciting because I use what fits as opposed to what's hot or looks or sounds good - it works for me, here go:

 

Ping G 30 - 150

Tour Exotics R8 75

 

 

TMag SLDR 4,5 150

Wilson C100's. 250

Hogan TKs. 350

 

Never Compromise Vodoo Daddy 25

 

I'd use the remaining 200 for necessary adjustments to get them all to fit.

I could buy exactly what I have for less than that so I'd just build the bag I have now. I could probably afford the actual bag too and still have money left over for some cocktails.

Same here.

Hmm $1200 for most of us goes a long way. I payed probably $600 for my entire set of clubs maybe less. That said for fun this last week I built 2 sets of clubs online in a shopping cart one no limit one had to be under $200. The no limit ended up being like $1600 with upgraded shafts etc. i actually had more fun with the under $200 had a Taylormade 580xd an Titleist 4wood set of Wilson Blades that were just awesome but would probably be extremely difficult to hit. All said $1200 if you can find irons for a good price goes a long way. My bag would be mixed for sure though. Probably Callaway or TM for the woods and I might save up for a spider putter or Scotty and cut some corners other places with used stuff.

I've got 16 new (actually used but you wouldn't know it) KZG forged irons I purchased recently. I want to have them all shafted and rebuilt to my specs by my fitter. So that's probably going to eat up most if not all of the $1200. If there's any left over I'll buy some waxed shoe laces.

Here's what I would do with $1200

All clubs would be used and most purchase through eBay and such.

 

Driver- cobra flyz+ $150

3 wood- taylormade rbz $60

5 wood- callaway BB V series $100

Irons- Nike Vapor Pro Combo 4-pw $550

Wedges- Cleveland Reg 588 50,54,58 $180

Putter- odyssey works tank #7 $130

 

Total of $1170

 

Keep in mind this is all Canadian funds so if we swap over to American I bet I could afford a lot more!

I'd tweak my current bag for sure, but not too much:

 

Driver: Callaway XR16 $200

Woods: Callaway BB V series 3W $70

Hybrid: Ping G30 22* $70

Irons: Steelhead XR 5-PW $435

Wedges: Callaway MD3 52*, 56*, 60* $300

Putter: Cleveland 2135 $115

 

That would keep me right under the mark and that would be a lovely setup

Posted a similar question awhile ago... not exactly the same but some interesting responses:

 

https://forum.mygolfspy.com/topic/17272-youre-given-1000-dollars-for-golf-and-you-need-to-start-over/?p=228041

 

 

I'd spend 250 bucks (or whatever it costs) to get a full bag fitting and then use the remainder to get a set of sticks.

Considering it's about 74c on the dollar, that's a might nice bag you'd be able to buy with the extra coin!

This is an awesome thread, I love dreaming about stuff. Over time I've spent way too much money on clubs lol. If I had $1200 to blow in my checking account here's a dream bag setup:

 

Driver: TMade Burner Tp (2006 version) with Matrix Orange Crush shaft X-Stiff

3-Metal: Callaway X-Hot (2006) with Diamana Whiteboard 73x

Irons: KZG ZO 2-Pw with DG x100

Wedges: Bridgestone J40 with DG s400

Putter: Wouldn't think about changing
