    I like beer too much so I don't get to 120 as that requires me to leave the 19th and start playing a 2nd 18 holes

    So I think I’m gonna try and start dedicating some time to hit a ball away from me and walk after it and repeat.
    In terms of a beginner set, is eBay/gumtree a okay spot to pick something up? Or are they notoriously shit.
    Don’t really wanna spend too much on a new set until I’m sure I’m not gonna trash em hitting the ball.

    Anything to look out for?

    If that is your focus then you should be fine. Maybe expand your search to pro shops at Golf Clubs and enquire at Drummond and Golf Mart about old sets

    I know they do deals for trade ins and they most likely have 2nd hand sets available

    No idea on price expectations

    Other place to look is your standard pawn shops

    the best money you can spend before even thinking about clubs is go to a course or a driving range and get one lesson. walk in, be honest, and say 'just starting, im here to get advice on clubs'. the teacher will then give you the best advice you'll ever get, because if you start out at least being able to hit the ball correctly, you'll go a long long way to enjoying yourself, which is what golf should be about.

    someone can have a $900 driver on sale on ebay for $100 but if it doesnt match your swing then its pointless. a pro will tell you what to look for in clubs, then you can start building your arsenal up without wasting money on clubs that wont suit you.


    just remember if you go for advice at a golf shop they are designed to sell you something, so the advice may not always be in 'your' best interest. A range/pro shop generally will want you falling in love with the game so you'll go play their courses and driving ranges.

    plus once you start playing, ask your playing partners for a hit of their clubs, 99% of people wont care (dont play golf with the other 1%, those people are assholes).

    If club technology was important everyone would be playing off scratch - which is clearly not the case.
    As Plague said - get a lesson and some advice from a professional - it will save you a fortune in the long run.

    technology might not be important but f*ck me dead it's great hitting an M5 compared to some shit you found on the side of the road

    gumtree is legit for clubs if you know what you are looking for

    im def in the boat of 'tech is good', but was more trying to explain that if you get the same driver with 2 different flex shafts they will feel completely different.
    If you match the right flex to your swing then it will cut down on the guesswork.

    Did you recently get new irons too? Thinking of updating my 5 and 6. FInally getting them to go as far as they can but think some newer versions might give me a bit more grunt.

    definitely, i was just defending how good it is to spend money on ridiculous shit

    still playing the same irons, they're on the slower side of a regular flex though. i should probably go dump some coin on a fitting/matching, i think i swing too hard for most of the sticks

    i've been working on shape a bit at the range. hasn't helped my game but it feels nice to launch a beautiful fade...

    then go on course and slice it directly into the bushes.

    It's bloody dangerous doing that. One monster hit of my mates Callaway X2 Hot driver and next minute I'd spent well over $2k on new clubs.

    Strip joints.
    Drug dealers.
    Golf shops.

    Nothing like the thrill of spending good money on rad shit.
