As the title says? Anyone? Well, since I've been here in Korea it's pretty much all I do when I'm not working. I'm not very good, but getting better. Anyway, I've always used off-the-shelf clubs but a few weeks ago my wife suggested that I order a custom set. First i asked her "Who are you and what have you done with my real wife?". The I asked her if she was aware how much a good, custom set of clubs cost...usually several hundred dollars. She told me to look into it and we'd see if we could make it work. I started looking around online and came across all of thses "clone" websites. Seemed like a pretty good deal. Anyhoo, I decided to order a set of clubs from www.diamondtour.com because they had the nicest website, and free shipping. I talked with their customer service a bit and placed an order for a set of Irons (3-PW), SW, LW, greenside chipper and a hydrid driver. I got +1/2 length shafts on all the clubs, oversize grips and the lie adjusted by 2 degrees on the irons. When all was said and done my total was $208.00...Well, they arrived today and they completely exceeded my wildest dreams. The craftsmanship on these things is amazing. I just got back from the range and they sing like a dream. The hybrid driver is beautimus!! Anyway, if there are any golfers out there looking to improve their clubs and hopefully their game you should check these guys out. From order to clubs in hand it took 11 days...and that's shipping to S. Korea...

Been golfing since I was 15 but I still seem to have a time on my chipping. My 9 iron is jinxed. I absolutly cannot hit that thing! I bought a lob web, broke a pitching wedge & do not own a SW. I bought some "Hulk" oversized irons 10 years ago but only play with maybe 4 of them. 3, 6, 8 (love my 8), and PW (which is in the woods somewhere). I have a monster drive, but getting onto the green is my problem if I am 30 yards or closer. I think to much then end up barely hitting it.
Still learning after 13 years.

I love to golf. Unfortunately I haven't been able to lately. I'm good with anything but my driver and after 3 holes usually it goes into the bag for the rest of the day and I just use my irons. I'm hoping when it cools off some I'll get to go out and play a round or two.

I played golf quite a bit before I started playing paintball, then it became "this or that," and usually came up paintball.
Now that I don't play that much anymore, I may have to start the golf thing up again...

I just got back from watching Tiger win the PGA. I have been looking for another set of clubs. Thanks for the source.

I get out about 3 times a month. Being our season is not year round I try to pile the games in fequently. I have done 6 tournies so far and I have about 4 more this season. I am by no means a good golfer but I absolutly love to be out on the course and with my job I have sealed about 4 deals on the course thius year. (Makes for a good Tax Write off)
