PostSubject: A question about a shop in Far East Shopping Centre   Sat Jun 18, 2011 2:28 pm

Hi fellow golfers!

I'm planning to buy an R11 Driver as a gift to my dad for father's day,

and since I'm on a budget,I found that Greenfield golf is selling at a good price,

but is greenfield golf good(selling authentic TM clubs)?

not trying to mean anything but just asking..cause I've been tricked once buying a fake Burner driver from a shop that closed down.

its 'buyer beware' bro. You are responsible for the authenticity or the quality of it be4 you make the purchase.

Go golf house if you really want genuine (from auhtorised dealer) stuff

Most shops assistance cannot differentiate real or fake. If they are authorized retailers then all is well. But many shops do sell 2nd hand gds. They are able to tell if something is obviously fake but not those that are subtle. That is the risk you have to take if you buy 2nd hand. Even brand new 2nd hand.

Greenfield Tony is an old bird in Golf business he knows best
between real stuff and fake. I am very sure he doesn't sell fake golf
equipment or imitation stuff that will ruin his reputation.

I hv bought from him before and also Ray!!
keep it up !!!

Golf Simply sells real stuff! If not, Adidas-TM and Acushnet will come after them easily as they display the clubs openly.

I believe Greenfield TM clubs come from GD who parallel imported from US. Golf Direct is pretty huge in US and hence, I believe they would not sell imitation stuff.

Transview and Panwest are also the authorised agents of Adidas-TM.

Bought a Second hand almost like brand new for $460 (with Ahina shaft!!!), somemore got free "tiger claw" tees for driving range

The shopowner Evonne is very easy going, can try to bargain sometimes.

Personally, I feel Greenfields is ok. I have traded many clubs there over the past 2 years. Was introduced to them by my golf coach.

Ray is a nice chap who dishes out good advice. I doubt they sell any new fake clubs there.

The head and shaft are made in China but assembled in USA. Some of the parts that made up the driver are sourced else where.

For Titty driver, the head is made in China, Shaft is made in Vietnam and the driver is assembled in USA.

The R11 is heavier and a little less forgiving than the Burner 2008.

Not necessary true. You should get a more skilled golfer to test it up. Most of the time, it is the golfer and not the tool ... No offence please ... Basketball

Agree with Turbo, i bought my burner from eBay. There are days when I hit 3, 5 woods off the deck like no body business. Hit 50/50 each never fail. There are also days when I just want to throw them away. Sad

Let the Pro or better player hit them and 90% of the problem lies on the player (at least for me). Laughing
