A regular reader of The Grateful Golfer pushed this video my way in support of my innovation post yesterday. It explains my point exactly, however I do have some thoughts after you watch.
Rick Shiels demonstrates that an inexpensive set of clubs is a great purchase for a beginner golfer. It offers enough quality at good value to enable someone to enter the sport without paying a great deal of money.
Rick hit the clubs well, but he admits that driver was not that forgiving. I agree with his assessment because of the quality of the shaft and head. For the beginner, they would not notice any real difference. However, as a single handicapper this driver would not be suitable for my game.
Ultimately, Rick was pointing out that some cheaper clubs can provide the same results (or close to it) as the much more expensive ones. So, if you are looking to get into golf or introducing someone to the game, consider a cheaper set at first and see how things develop.
Thanks Kevin for pushing Rick Shiels video my way.
