Not essential. Recommend buying a beginners set or getting a set of used clubs from somewhere like Callaway pre-owned. You’ll be much better off using some of that money to invest in lessons.

No there’s no need for that. Get decent set of clubs that feel comfortable, lots of good used deals, and just get out and play. I’d also find a coach and get some lessons. Once you’re comfortable and know you’ll stick with it, get fit for a set that matches your swing. A good fitting is a lesson too so anyone who gets paid whether you buy clubs or not is preferable IMO.

Try 2ndswing.com for a set of preowned clubs. I’m currently playing Ping G400s that I got used for $400 + $400 for the matching driver. Finally going to spring for a new set of Pings next season after 5 years of playing and hitting a 10 HCP.

Finding it hard to continue as an attorney after 10 years as a very happy litigator doing insurance defense work including trials. Courts have been closed for over a year (I practice in NYC) and it does not look like I’ll ever have the lifestyle I once had and loved, going to court and depositions every day. Billable hours seem impossible without court and life has just gotten so gravely boring. Anyone else feeling lost? I’ve spent the entire last year trying to figure out where to go from here

Considering looking for a new sales management role. I’ve only had “promote from within” sales manager roles where I started as an IC and continue to manage my book while selling. I’d like to make a switch and start in a management only role. Any recommendations on companies? I have 6 years of top producing IC sales experience and a little over 4 years of management experience.

Made it through a screening interview for a small, boutique firm. Seemed like a good place to work until they mentioned starting salary would be less than what I’m making. I informed them that their entry salary would be a pay cut for me and that there would need to be negotiation. They invited me to do a formal interview with partners and case. Is there way to bring comp up again before the interview without being annoying? Don’t want to come off as rude, but also don’t want to waste time.
