Coming Back to Golf--Part 3: This Season Will Be Brought to You By Ram Golf and Sports Authority

After not being too impressed with Dick’s Sporting Goods during my first club-shopping outing, I headed over to The Sports Authority and had much better luck.

As mentioned in my previous post, I want to try and keep the cost of this season as low as possible. It was fortunate then that Sports Authority was having a killer golf sale, and I grabbed a complete set of Ram G-Force golf clubs for $140, which includes a 2-year replacement guarantee. Cheap clubs have a higher likelihood of breaking, and at least now I have a little peace of mind with that. I also picked up a nice pair of FootJoy golf shoes for $45, and I got a great deal on a glove and some new golf balls for about $12.

All told, I spent $207, am I’m now fully equipped to start the season. I plan on hitting the driving range soon, at which time I’ll write a bit about how the new clubs actually perform.
