I actually had to finally purchase a set of golf clubs today. I have a stupid corporate function this weekend and we are “team-building” by playing quite possible the most retarded game ever invented. For the past couple of years, I would borrow clubs when I was forced to play. That came to an end this morning when I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods.
I walked over to the Golf section where a middle age man in golf attire asked me if I needed any help. I told him I need everything, irons, woods, bag, shoes, balls etc… He proceeded to show me Calloways and then Taylor Mades. Being the quick witted fellow I am, I figured out that this may very well cost me over $500!!!! I put an end to this immediately and said “where are cheap sets?”. Not “where are the inexpensive sets?” He reluctantly guided me to a small corner of the showroom where top brands like Stauder, Pro-Am, and XG-50s are stacked in boxes. Obviously, no one had ever heard of these brands.
Needless to say I am the proud owner of XG-50s. Everything included $179.99.
