frankly speaking, I didn't read the reviews before buying. Just went in, hit a few shots(and that is against a net so no idea good shot or bad shot Laughing ), feels good then buy lo...lol...
But I think I read a review(after buying) that the set is not really for weekend golfers and I am exactly that! sweating now..
Anyway, once I hit the range and greens(may take awhile cos my small group of kakis seems a lot busier nowadays) I give you guys my feel.. fingers cross...

Was at sembawang just now, game cut short due to rain! Went to pan west and saw the Callaway Diablo driver selling for $59! Can't resist so LL brought one. Was also looking at the odyssey 2 ball putter, selling $199 , anyone know how much over at GD?

Regardless how good it feels, perhaps it is best to leave out extreme amounts of dopamine from your “better living through chemistry” five-year plan. From the perspective of impulse shopping, too high a concentration of dopamine in your brain chemistry mix can lead to impulse buying, experts think. It also makes a person more susceptible for general impulsive conduct, some of which could be as self-destructive as runaway spending, if not more.

If KJ Choi buys off the rack, then why is someone like myself with my skill level thinking of custom all the time.
