Anyone recommend a good started set of clubs? Going back to the game after 7-8years, so not sure what’s good these days to restart. My bad if already asked - would be great if you can redirect. Thanks!

There are secondhand websites that could save you some money

If you’re in the UK, have a look at Golfbidder, a great second hand store. In terms of clubs, anything from the major brands over the last 5 years will be fine. If you check out Peter finch and Rick shields golfbidder golf challenge on YouTube , you’ll see that even the old clubs they use can perform pretty well

Great site!

I recommend taking a lesson and then going to a PGA store or Golf Galaxy to get fitted. They will show you lots of options that work for your game.

This. Get fitted. You’d be amazed at how large a difference small tweaks can make. I got fitted two years ago and learned I have a steep swing; they increased the lie angle of my irons by 1 degreee to compensate. I hit everything so much more flush now, and have taken at least 5 strokes off my score.

Can’t go wrong with Taylormade driver and woods, and Calloway or Ping Irons

Totally personal preference. I found that Taylormade driver/ woods work best for me. I’ve hit others but just hit TM the best. Same logic for irons, wedges, and putter even. I have mizuno irons, Cleveland wedges, and an old Scotty C putter my friend gave me. It’s literally 20+ years old and I’m only 25. Lol I recommend going to a Golf Galaxy and spend hours trying everything. Explain to the sales rep when you’re there to do and they’ll give you a hitting net and all the space you need.

Callaway , mizuno, ping, Taylor made basically all the known names

Not true, you can find starter sets. Pretty sure TM still has some version of the RBZ sets. Can get a full set for ~1k or less

Costco's Callaway set is decent, cost around 500 bucks

Call me crazy - I have a set of forged Maltby irons that strike really well for $299.

Where do you find those? I ended up with started kit from Golf Galaxy and pretty happy.

Nice! Enjoy the new sticks. $359 oops. They were $299 when I got them. https://www.golfworks.com/maltby-te-forged-premium-pak-ust-mamiya-recoil/p/pma0099rc/

If you're looking for a decent set for less money, Wilson makes some good starter clubs. I hear good things about their pro staff clubs also (their higher end set).

Ethical question: would you try to negotiate a raise in current job if you know you’re actively looking elsewhere?

I also hate what I do at the moment and can’t wait to leave, but might take months. Should I still ask for a raise?
