    Unless you're a scratch golfer, more practice will improve your game much more than new equipment. The best game of golf I ever shot was with a borrowed set of rusty Wilson Staffs. This was back in the 80's so you know how basic those clubs were. No perimeter weighting, no graphite shafts, no anything. I don't know much about a custom fit but I do know that I've shortened shafts and re-gripped them myself. Not a big deal.

    It's kind of like firearms. Most of us own guns that are far more accurate than we will ever be. So get some practice, maybe a "new" set of nice used clubs, and spend the rest on your other hobby.

    Well I voted for guns first, then read your story. Once I read your situation, I have to say, buy the clubs. Getting beat by a chick is not cool:D Your manhood depends upon you redeeming yourself. Otherwise, hand over the man card.:eek:

    Tell me where you work, so I can apply. I would love to get a $4K bonus check.

    Take the money pay it against your mortgage or pay off a credit card or two.

    I voted for buying the clubs but gdmoody has the best answer yet. In times like this paying off debt is the best thing to do. Why pay a bank all of that interest. Pay it down and buy what ever you like... with cash!!!

    Some quotes about GOOF:
    Give me the fresh air, a beautiful partner, and a nice round of golf, and you can keep the fresh air and the round of golf. ~Jack Benny
    Golf is a good walk spoiled. ~Mark Twain
    Golf seems to me an arduous way to go for a walk. I prefer to take the dogs out. ~Princess Anne of Great Britain
    If you want to take long walks, take long walks. If you want to hit things with sticks, hit things with sticks. But there's no excuse for combining the two and putting the results on TV. Golf is not so much a sport as an insult to lawns. ~National Lampoon, 1979
    Golf is a lot of walking, broken up by disappointment and bad arithmetic.
    Golf is essentially an exercise in masochism conducted out-of-doors. ~Paul O'Neil
    Golf is an open exhibition of overweening ambition, courage deflated by stupidity, skill scoured by a whiff of arrogance. ~Alistair Cooke
    No game designed to be played with the aid of personal servants by right-handed men who can't even bring along their dogs can be entirely good for the soul. ~Bruce McCall, "The Case Against Golf," Esquire
    You can't call it a sport. You don't run, jump, you don't shoot, you don't pass. All you have to do is buy some clothes that don't match. ~Steve Sax
    Golf is a game where white men can dress up as black pimps and get away with it. ~Robin Williams, 1986
    There is one thing in this world that is dumber than playing golf. That is watching someone else playing golf. What do you actually get to see? Thirty-seven guys in polyester slacks squinting at the sun. Doesn't that set your blood racing? ~Peter Andrews

    Wanna shoot really well? Take lessons from an expert. Wanna Golf really well?........... According to experts, shooting isn't really all that natural, neither is Golf.
    To the Golf naysayers, it's not about the game, it's about the challange of it.

    I live next to a golf course.....
    I can hear them folks yelling......" I got four " !!
    I guess if you're gonna shoot golfs, you would
    need to get at least four with a shot, especially
    if you are gonna eat them, 'cause they are really small.

    I married a gal who was doing exceptionally well with golf, went to college on a scholarship 8th in the nation and you better believe I have to hold my own when it comes to golf. Having said that a new set of clubs is not the answer. Take some of the money and get private lessons. A good instructor will do more for you than any set of golf clubs. Now that you have covered that you need a new gun to take out your frustrations from playing golf. Besides letting here win at something just makes good marital sense.
