I'm off to SF in 2 weeks time and was wondering whether I should go golf shopping Smile I know that there's a Golfsmith in SF city itself (used to walk by it daily) and will definitely go poke around.

What golf gear would be worthwhile picking up in the US?

That's my fear. I just came back from Hong Kong too where I spent lots already. I'm now broke but can't resist Smile

Thanks, Poresia. I don't fancy picking up lots of clubs but some select ones would do Wink

Ts, i just got back from the bay area. But i didnt go to the city so i went to golfmart at burlingame, south of sf. Pretty much hit every clubs available, new and preowned.

Suggestions:
- buy demo clubs or preowned stuff. Good disc on newest models!
- bring an old lousy bag, buy new one. Throw away the old.
- wedges galore!! Prices between $69-89 for previous yrs models.
- adams black series: pro hybrids, cb1 forged
- oldies but goodies like rapture hybrid, burner/vsteel/r7 woods, tm rescues
- lots of shoes or footjoy closeouts for $79
- nike vr tour driver with px graphite

Fred couples' ecco shoes were very tempting. bridgestone golf 2010 irons/wedge line up is not available here, so i'd check their stuff too. If u stay long enough: buy online and ship to your hotel. Do ask the concierge first if they provide such service. Most hotels do.

Beware of SFO: the sob baggage handlers broke my shaft, probably out of spite.
