Decide on a brand then visit the respectively retailers!

Go club fitting if you're confident and really want to improve! If not you can always start off with a game improvement irons!


Examples
G25
TM Rbz irons
Titty AP2


Prices wise they will range.. There are golf shops in town Taylormade , Far East Shopping Centre , Golfhouse!

Cheers

Haha , thank you, i am looking at no specific brand, any retailers who stock multiple brands and have a bay for you to hit / analyse your swing, and then fit a club to you spec ?

The tm rbz irons should run me appx what price raange ?

Golf house at laguna has, I believe, most of the big names there.

They'd let you try most of the clubs there.

I know they fit you for mizuno, not sure about the other brands. Point to note is their shaft recommendations are only the ns pro range.

Also at laguna there's another pro shop at the range, and they fit you for miura clubs.

When should I change/upgrade the clubs? Am using the full set clubs (Kasco), high handicapper.
like the feel of the swing when I tried steel shaft.
Or should I wait till my results turned better.
thanks in advance to brothers and sisters who shared your views.

Callaway or TM with demo bay: Go to golf house at paragon. For purely prices, Golf Direct.

BFG bukit merah also sells cally but I don't think u can immediately bring home the clubs.

When was at Far East Shopping Centre, was quoted Titleist set at SGD800, $300 less than the price tag on the display set ($1.1k).

cant remember the name of the shop.
i took the external escalator in front of the FE SC to the second floor, turn left. The shop is located in front of the escalator.
I still can remember the shop occupies 2 shop lots, with only 1 entrance.

Sounds like golf leisure. One section with golf bag but need to go through the main door.

Bro, your description is rather poor leh ... Hahaha ...

If you take the external escalator (the one directly infront of Thai Embassy & Shaw House across the road) and you made a left turn, there are two shops - Greenfield (left side of aisle) and Transview (right of aisle). The former mainly selling used clubs and the latter selling 100% new clubs. If you walk further in, you see Vince Sport which occupied 4 separate shops opposite each other. If you walk around the bend thru' Vince Sport, you will see MST and another new golf equipment shop called Ayanex (spelling??) which is owned by Gula (ex staff of Golf Direct). If you walk even further, you'll see Golf Simply (oppo. is a narrow escalator for coming up) and then Panwest. Golf & Leisure is located at the other end of 2nd floor and opposite a wide staircase.

So, which Titleist model u are talking about? Izzit AP1 or 2? High chance is, you are referring to a used model from Greenfield or a new one from Golf Simply.

Hi bro Derek, personally I dun think its yr mentioned elevator. Smile
Firstly, he mentioned its external escalator already. Wink
Secondly, yr mentioned secondary elevator will lead to a small local golf apparels boutique (shop name: atmosphere..something like tat). queen
And the two shops combined golf shop re located behind this elevator n has many branded stuffs ie: Titleist, Puma, Miura, Calla etc.. cyclops
And I cant accept tat they ve brand new Titleist set at S$800 [quite tough fr even brand new 710 AP2] n as low as S$300 tat nt possi even fr 710 AP1! affraid
Sharg my view n recalling of tat shop la. lol!
