Funny you should mention that. My work does a golf morning once a week at 6 am and because my old golf clubs SUCKED i just got some new ones....well...used...practically new.

This guy was a fitness trainer and won a contest from Titleist to get custom fitted for clubs. So he was selling his old ones for 400.....i offered 300 and he took em.

2008 Callaway big bertha iron set, 4-P. all regripped 2 weeks ago and the heads are in MINT condition.

Cleveland Hi-Bore XLS MONSTER driver with a shorter shaft for a stiffer flex (perfect for me)

Taylor Made putter...some XI blah blah (i will stick to my VooDoo)

Adams golf 3 wood that i LITERALLY have poked longer than any 3 i have ever owned.

Cleveland 22degree 7 hybrid.

and a Callaway Diablo Bag ( he got it 2 weeks ago its mint)

Needless to say I got a deal.

EDIT: Oops forgot pics

EDIT AGAIN: Forgot to mention that the 4 and 5 are Callaway's iBird hybrids...they are so sweeettt

I can't afford another expensive hobby between diesel trucks, fishing/bassboat, and the racecars no way can I afford another... I have played a few times with friends clubs I can chip well and that's about it.

Q. Why do they call it "golf"?

A. Because *&$# was already taken.

I don't have the temper for golf at all. I can drive it a mile but that's about it. I would rather be fishing or at the track on a nice day though.

Pasture pool! Not very good at it, seems like a waste of time to me.

I think Mark Twain said it best; "golf is a good walk spoiled".

I played when I was a teen and took it up again when my brother lived on a golf course. My dad had a membership, but he let it expired and I haven't played since my brother moved due to job related. It was only good for shouting cuss words. :D It is highly likely I won't pick it up again, I got mountain biking, fishing, and backpacking to keep my soul sane. :) I'm sure once I get into real world that I'll have clients and coworkers inviting me to go play golf. Hopefully going fishing or bike riding won't hurt my relationship with them. :D

You can take your tackle bag instead of a golf bag and just fish while they golf.

I was more of an avid golfer than a fisherman prior to moving to Florida fulltime. When I first got down here I played golf everyday, then did some bass fishing in the afternoon. Took a walk out on the jettie 1 day and saw these guys catching these little 4-5 # Jack crevelles. Next day I bought saltwater combo, caught a few jacks and haven't touched a club since, and reduced my bass fishing to the winter, been 6 years.

Have thought about playing golf many times, just haven't as yet, but I want to.

I think golf is the greatest game there is.

Have worked at golf course for 40+ years. Used to play every day. Played mini tours for a few years and a couple PGA Tour events. Played once two years ago, three times last year and played last Tuesday. Birdied 3 of the last seven to shoot 85. Still won 50 bucks. Better to know how to gamble than know how to play!!!!!!!!!!!!

I took up bass fishing when it finally dawned on me that I would never be worth a crap at golf. I just don't have the temperament for it. I got angry when I made a bad shot, which boiled over to the next shot, which boiled over to the next. My average score was in the high nineties, low 100's. Obviously, I didn't enjoy it, so, here I am hanging out on a bass fishing web site.

I played a ton last year because one of my friends worked at the course. I got pretty good. Averaged around 75, but did shoot a 69 one day!! B) I played for the first time in about 8 months Friday and needless to say, it was BAD!!! A 100 even, a 56 on the front and a 44 on the back. If only I had a dollar for every tree I hit that day... :rolleyes:

Ain't got the time! With 5 grand kids (always want us to go to something, piano recital, dance recital, birthdays, school events, etc), a band to rehearse and gig (I play bass, harmonica, and vocals), and a home remodel, if I have any spare time I go fishing. Fishing time averages about once every 6 to 8 weeks, and at that someone is always disappointed.

Also, the game does absolutely nothing for me, which is kinda sad because I have a natural talent for it.
