“The average golfer golfs to get exercise and avoid problems. Don’t add another problem by having unrealistic expectations and buying $800 to $1,500 worth of equipment without careful consideration. If you buy expensive equipment off the rack, you are likely to be frustrated if you can’t improve. I’ll loan you the clubs during lessons, until you develop realistic expectations.”
