As most of us know, the internet is pretty much the cheapest place to get ANYTHING. I am looking for a set of golf clubs (irons and woods). The best I can get for under $350. Can those of you who are in to golf give me any help? Also, please recommend a brand of clubs, as I do dont know shit about them! [:D] Thanks! and sorry about the far out off topic post! [:P]

Well, my personal favorites are Callaway and Ping, but you wont get anywhere close to any "name brand" clubs as a set for what you are looking to spend. You probably can get a great set of irons for that and maybe one driver or fairway wood. try www.golfclubexchange.com lots of good deals to be found. as with guns, it's the indian that makes the differance not the arrow !!!! Tiger Woods could beat most anyone with a set from wal mart !!! good luck [x]

Even new clubs won't cure a crappy swing.

I would recommend the Pings if you want to spend that much. In reality, depending on how much golf you have played, ANY decent perimeter weighted iron will work well. I used to be a 4 or 5 handicap when I played everyday(for those non golfers, that means I shot 75-78 regularly on 18 holes), and I still wasn't good enough to see that much difference between the Pings and the look-a-likes. I would highly recommend getting the clubs fitted to you! Length of shaft makes a big difference depending how tall you are. Shaft stiffness also is a good thing to have fitted. A local Pro can help you with this. Woods are a different story, you get what you pay for. Callaway, Taylor, good starts. Good luck, practice putting!!! Half of all your strokes on the course are your putts. guns762

i'm a ping shooter myself, but I am sure there are older ping clubs to be had out there. Check places like ebay.

I forgot to add one thing yesterday. Don't buy a whole set of woods, 3 or more. Buy your irons(PW-3, optional SW &2), then look for a good=expensive driver, and a good=expensive 3 wood, preferably a fairway wood. I have an old Taylor Made 3 wood that still sings every time I hit it, off the tee, or in the fairway. My friends like to barrow it from time to time when things aren't going well. I have yet to understand what the hell good is a 5 wood. I think I've used mine twice. If you really think you need one more club, buy a 2 iron. I hit my 3 iron as far as my 5 wood and more accurately. A two iron would be great for long par 3's that you really need accuracy, and would fit in between the distance of a 3 wood and a 3 iron. guns762
