Having a spare set of clubs around is important for guests who happen to drop by and want to tee it up. I have several sets, including one for a lefty. Of course none are the quality of my Titleist AP2s, but they will do in a pinch and are far better than any rentals. About two weeks ago, my wife saw the set I purchased in a virtual garage sale and pointed them out to me and without hesitation, we snapped them up!
Now before you start wondering why I need another set of clubs for guests, these clubs are unique and not everyone can use them. So, it is important that regardless of who visits, I am ready to entertain them on the golf course or at the range. As an Uncle and a Great Uncle, the ages of visitors will vary. And as such, I need to be ready.
I also think that starting kids out early with a club in their hand is very important to their future development as the next Brooke Henderson or Adam Hadwin. To become a golfer at an early age, the younger players need two things: a set of clubs and someone to take the time to teach them. I always had the second thing, but I did not have the first. Well all of that has changed.
The set of Powerbuilts has a carry bag, driver, 7i and putter. More than enough clubs for a young player. This set will offer the opportunity to play all shots and keep their interest long enough to loop at least 6 holes. I think the clubs will be great for someone between the age of 5 and 8. Any older and they will need a longer set of clubs.
Well, I am all set for visitors regardless of age. I figured for the price, it was worth buying them and having in my armory of clubs. I still have a few gaps, but for now I am ready. Do you have spare sets for your guests?
On a side note, yesterday was my 6th year anniversary of The Grateful Golfer! I am having a good time writing and I hope you are still enjoying the read. Thank you for awesome support!
