I havent played golf for the better part of 10 years. used to play a decent bit growing up just kinda got out of it and would like to start back. the clubs i have from back in the day are going to be replaced there old and dont really fit. I have been looking alot about reviews and all that and from what i gather the Ping G5 iron sets seem to be a great value as i would like to stay below 250-300 for the time being. Alot of the stuff i read on them was from 2010-2011 and they seemed to be a go to set for high handicappers and beginners. Would yall recommend these or what are some other options? Would yall try to go with a newer g series of the Pings for any reason? Im not completely set on Ping but I know they are good clubs. I have no idea what to do for driver/fairwaywoods/hybrids. Any help/guidance would be much appreciated. Thanks
I would go to your local stores that have several used options and hit what they have. Most of them will be in that price range anyway (depending on how old they are). As far as hybrids, it really depends on how well you hit the lower lofted clubs. I only have a 3 hybrid, but can work it more than any club in my bag and use it in a lot of ways. I play titleist, but if you are looking for forgiveness with distance, I would look at taylormade. The burners are a good set, you can get for that price. I used to play those.

You might want to try finding a used set of what you want for a cheaper price. Get a set of irons/woods that are the forgiving type (mishits). After getting back into the groove, you can trade them in at places like Dick's, when you get ready for a new set. I just started back myself after a ten year hiatus, left elbow operation. Was invited by my preacher to play in a scramble, and played in a scramble with him. Got my old set out and played with them as is (big mistake). I realized they needed new grips, so I just got through replacing the grips. Anyway, been talking with the golf pro at Dick's in Opelika, and he recommended the Taylor Made sets. Said if you go new, and purchase through them, they will custom fit them. Plus, like WarSox said, go to your local stores (I recommend Dick's); Dick's has several different brands you can try out, with different grip sizes, etc. The custom fit prices are reasonable, and sometimes free (depending on what you get done) as long as you purchase from them.
thanks im gonna try to go do that this week hopefully
I love the ping equipment and the "G" series is their "forgiving" line of clubs. I play a G15 driver which I love. I have 18, 21, 24, 28 and 32 degree hybrids in the G 10 series. They are great clubs to hit and are very forgiving. In irons a 6 iron is the longest iron I carry and they are Callaway X18s. I bought all of those on ebay and got them for a good price. The disadvantage of getting them on ebay is that you can't get fitted for clubs on ebay.
If you haven't played in ten years take some lessons so the fundamentals will be fresh
Get fitted at a golf store. Then look at GigaGolf.com. They make the knockoffs and use your measurements to fit them to you. A heck of a lot cheaper and good clubs! I have used them for a set and the clubs are great, look good and the company has excellent customer service. They know golf, they know how to fit the club to your specs.
