I'd like to upgrade and get a decent set of clubs, but it's a minor miracle when I break 100, so I can't justify spending the money until I have the time (and money) to play more than once a month. If quality clubs would decrease my score by three strokes from like 88 to 85, it might be worth it, but if it's the difference between shooting 112 and 109, I'm not going to spend the dough.
I went from shooting 105 to 95 easy when I stopped using top flight and changed to titleist and nike golf balls. Top flights are like flying rocks. Which probably explains why they are so cheap and why everyone uses them. Lower compression balls are better too unless you have a very fast club head speed.
I refuse to play with Top "Rock" balls anymore. Its only Titleist and Nike for me now also.
I like bridgestone and callaway... though i havent bought golf balls in about 4-5 years and usually play around with whatever since if i lose it i dont look for it.
I use to golf alot in high school, then the past two years its been cut down a lot, last year i only played 5 times... this year ive only played 18 once but 9 a few times. Might go play 18 later if it doesnt rain.
I agree that the most shots are lost on the green, it does no good to hit the green in reg then 3 putt... something i do a lot of
as for clubs, Im not a huge fan of the hybrids for myself, but for someone who has a easy swing coming off shoulder surgery, putting a few in your bag probably wont hurt since they are a lot more forgiving than irons.
