Is that right? My dad's been looking for it and it's been $179-$199 everywhere.

The 580XD is the older line that matches the 510TP that I'm still hitting today.

I think it went down just a week ago. I've seen it that price at a Dick's in Va Beach and a Golf Galaxy. Of course, they are the same company, so I might be wrong.

You could also look at a play it again Sports. They have decent prices on clubs.

Another website that offers alot of close-out deals is rock bottom golf

RockBottomGolf.com - Discount Golf Clubs, New Golf Clubs and Equipment from TaylorMade, Adams Golf, Mizuno, Tommy Armour, Ram, Hippo, Wilson, Nike, Bag Boy and Ogio.

That's probably not a bad set of clubs if you are a beginner or high handicapper who is playing with very old clubs and wants something cheap.

What have you got now?

Honestly though, if you are willing to spend $200, you'd be surprised what you can get from somewhere like Callaway Preowned. The technology would be old, but would be superior to that set on e-bay.

I have like 4th generation hand me downs, and they truly aren't worth a dime. Crappy, old.

I'm probably not willing to spend $200 this season, but I am willing to spend say $50 this year, then $200+ next season if I get better (gonna take lessons).

Let me clarify: I'm hoping to upgrade slightly to used clubs that are at least in working shape, from Ebay for a good deal. Then, after I find out if I can at least improve my game with lessons, invest more so from there.

got my stupid arse sunburned playing today, but hit one of the best 4 irons of my life and putted reasonably well, so it was worth it.

To make a long story still long: the job opening was for a transactional AE (works with agencies and numbers inside all day) and while I have a little bit of experience there, my experience is mostly in local direct advertising. The sales manager was very very nice and said that when an opening for a bizdev AE opens, they're calling me to ask me to apply.

I got rained out. I'm playing in a tournament Monday and I haven't gotten in a single round of golf in the past 3 weeks. I'm sure it will be a banner day.

Not really . . . Golfsmith is just an outlet store that also sells components and knockoff clubs. That set I found is more of a traditional cast cavity backed iron vs that hybrid set you are looking at. I don't think there is really a right or wrong set when you are spending $50-$75 on a set of irons. You just need something with some semblance of playability.
