I’m starting golf classes this month. Never played before but been reading about it the past few weeks and it seems very interesting. Any tips on beginner gold sets, golf courses around NYC area and other things I could do this summer? Thank you. Fwiw, 30/M

Any starter set should work like the one I liked below. For beginners, I’d suggest any set that has a driver, 3 wood, 5 hybrid, 6-9 irons, pitching wedge and putter. You’ll want regular flex on the shafts and decent balls once you get to the course. No need for expensive balls but you’ll want semi decent once playing on a course. DM me if you have any other specific questions - happy to answer. https://www.dickssportinggoods.com/p/top-flite-2020-xl-13-piece-complete-set-graphite-steel-19tflmtpflt20xlrdset/19tflmtpflt20xlrdset?color=Camo%2FBlack

Agreed. Avoid these starter sets. Facebook marketplace or Craigslist should have plenty of used sets that cost the same as this and are much better.

Don’t spend a lot of money on a starter set. Get something modern but used , or buy one of those starter sets that gives you everything for $400 or whatever. Once you actually know what your doing you can start spending real $ to build the right set. That will run you $3000+ but no need if your terrible.

Do not - DO NOT - get a $400 here’s all your clubs set. Stick to name brands (Titleist, taylormade, mizuno, Srixon, Cleveland, cobra, callaway, adams, maybe some other I’m forgetting). Anything used and recent (think post-2010) is fine. If I were you I’d think ~$700 on a decent beginner set. They should be marketed or labelled as “game improvement” or “cavity back” Arguably most important factor of clubs is shaft flex. As a beginner I would think you want regular flex, but if you are a strong and athletic young guy then maybe consider stiff shafts. I’ve played my whole life and love golf equipment - feel free to ask any other questions you’ve got

I’d go used for clubs. Leverage the pro you see for help. Definitely learn some golf etiquette. Unfortunately, it’s not always newbie friendly. Par 3 courses are a nice way to ease in. Also, be prepared to suck. It really is a very tough and humbling game but there are moments that can hook you. Enjoy them and have fun. Figure out what you want from it and make it happen.

So much anxiety about going full-time with Deloitte soon. I am interning with Deloitte now and I still have so much anxiety. Like I’m not doing enough even though I’m also doing school full-time. I keep reading awful things about how the culture is cutthroat and to “suck up” to managers but I’m not even sure how to do that? I’m just stressed I’m not doing enough. I just want to be able to succeed but I’m also so stressed with school and work. Is it really that hard to succeed here? Help please!!

My best friend is an immigrant. She has lived in the USA for ten years now and has a great career. However she says america is very lonely.

She misses daily socializing that was a norm in her home country. I’ve lived here all my life so can’t judge but curious as to whether other immigrants here agree
