I was trying to decide whether to put this here, or in other sports, so feel free to move it if you disapprove, mods. Last summer I bought a very cheap used driver, two irons, and a wedge. Total, I'm pretty sure I spent less than $120. I went to the driving range with a buddy of mine a few times, and enjoyed it enough that I think I'd like to get an actual set. I'm well aware that I will be a terrible golfer, and may never get to the finer points of the game. However, I want a basic set so that if one of my friends who actually plays golf invites me to go along, I can show up with a set of clubs and not embarass my friend. Any suggestions on where to find a good deal on a basic set, or things for me to weigh as I look at sets? I've been out to the giant golf place in cool springs, and to dicks sporting goods, but I know NOTHING about the brands, so I don't know what's reliable, and what looks like kiddie plastic to actual golfers. I'm not looking to drop $600, because I don't think it would be worth it for me. If I really enjoy golf that much, I'll get a really good set in 4-5 years, once I see that I'm actually going to do it, and learn enough to get clubs that suit me the next time around. Whatever I get, I'm going to have to get them lengthened because I'm tall. I THINK that what I want is an all inclusive set, but I'm not really settled on anything at this point. How much do I need to spend to get decent quality? What's important? I welcome any advice, thanks.
