Specially when you wrap half of them around trees or toss them in to ponds
I have broken clubs on trees - unintentionally

I have thrown putters into ponds - intentionally

I purchase golf clubs on eBay a couple years old and slightly used.  Saves half the price of new.
I've had the same clubs (custom designed for me) since ~2001. 

I don't buy new [or used] clubs, because I know the clubs aren't the reason I'm a sh!tty golfer...

I haven't been able to buy a better golf game either.

it's my swing that's the problem, but........

there have been some improvements in clubs and balls since 2000 that I'm sure help some.

These are my exact expectations - when I do go duffing every decade or so.Matter of fact I'm taking as many whacks as i can and get my money's worth.

That is true... 

But that's why I think getting custom-fit clubs, rather than "new" clubs, is the key. None of the technological improvements in clubs will matter if you don't have the right grips and shafts for your hands, height, body type, and swing. And once you have those, tiny technological improvements over the course of a decade or even two won't make enough difference to justify getting new clubs. 

Granted, I'm an extreme case. I'm 6'5" and my doctor told me [despite being a few pounds heavier than I should] not to ever worry about BMI because my muscle mass was high enough that I'll never be within "normal". To bring it back to football, I actually went to Costco a few weeks ago with a "Purdue Football" shirt on and the cashier asked me if I used to play for Purdue--I look like a guy who could have and then spent 20 years letting himself go... I'm a big guy and my swing is far outside the bounds of what a typical golf club is designed for. Hence why I was teeing off with a 5 iron and my father-in-law was teeing off with a driver, and I outdrove him on a number of holes...

But I think anyone who wants to play a lot of golf would do better to get custom-fit clubs, ONCE, despite the cost, and then focus on using them.

Even Browns/Lions fans are like WTF Pete needs to put the pint down.Freakin' Jets gotta bee pinching themselves.Prolly would have taken 1/2 that
Yeah, even the Lions/Browns wouldn't make a trade like that. 

Jamal Adams was a malcontent whose contract was up, and who was about to demand a huge contract. Jets get rid of a locker-room problem, save a SHIT ton of cap space, and then get a decent, startable safety, TWO first round picks, and a 3rd round pick in return. Seems like a heavily lopsided deal if you ask me.

I will agree with this for a 5'6" guy or a 6'5" guy

I just happen to be 5"10" - the average that manufacturers make their clubs to fit.

focusing on using clubs for a couple years or 5 or 6 is better in my opinion than changing clubs every couple months like some of my buddies always trying to buy a game

haven't seen it mentioned yet here- Jags cut Leonard Fournette after he has his best season in year 3 and runs for almost 1,200 yards and catches 70+ balls last season. 

Yeah, let's cut the only good player we have on offense. It's almost like the Jags want to suck. They have been getting rid of anybody with a pulse there. Tanking for Trevor? 

And who does he sign too? Tampa Bay. Fournette is going to wreck the league there imo. He just turned 25 a few months ago and only has 650 or so NFL carries on his body. Arians said Ronald Jones will remain the starter but that's just a bunch of coachspeak imo. Fournette is WAY more talented than Ronald Jones and he'll take that job in no time.

Good thing I drafted Ronald Jones II, and handcuffed him with Ke'Shawn Vaughn

Vaughn is an intriguing pass catching RB. 

Honestly though ELA, what do you think? Do you really think Jones is better than Fournette? I've watched plenty of both of them, and Fournette is wayyyyyy more talented. He jumps out on the screen to me when he plays. Every once in awhile Fournette does something that makes you go WHOA- THAT DUDE AIN'T HUMAN. Jones is just an OK back imo. Fournette hasn't had that breakthrough dominant season but he's also been nicked up and played on a SHIT organization with zero help around him on offense.
