compulsive club-buying is our gain
I think everyone who can afford to blow the kind of money you can feed 500 african refugees for a year on some sweet sticks should do so.
It doesn’t bug me when I see a hack roll up to the tee with some new Taylor Made woods, Ping Irons and Scotty Cameron putter. What digusts me is when at the beginning of EVERY golf season they have something new. Show a little loyalty to your clubs, don’t toss ‘em after a few bad rounds.
However. . .thanks to these guys the used club market is a bullish one for those who want the goods but lack the funds. You can easily find a near-mint condition set of irons for 500 bucks when it sold for over $1200. Years back I bought a like-new Taylor Made Driver for $100 that didn’t even have any ‘idiot’ marks yet.
So I suppose I shouldn’t complain about compulsive club-buyers, because it helps those of us who spend our money on needier things like child support and bonsai trees get some primo weapons.

Funny thing is, I can't agree with you on the putter thing. You need a good wand, not some heavy piece of slag on a stick (sounds like a corn dog.)
