I have  a kid in my church group who just took up golf.  He bought a $5 set at a yard sale (a mishmash of very old wilson blade irons and spalding persimmon woods in pretty rough shape).  

I am looking to try and get him a newer set of game improvement clubs.  Right now, I am not in a position to buy him a set myself (I am passing on a few of my older fairway woods to him).  I am willing to pay a small amount for anybody who has a set that will work.  He is around 5'10" to 6'0" tall and is pretty athletic.   There aren't used sporting goods stores in our area (a la Play It Again Sports)  and he isn't in a position to get an expensive new or used set .  I have been scouring Goodwill stores for some but have found sets similar to what he bought.   I am afraid his current set will make the game too difficult for him and he may give it up. 

 

Thank you

How about Pinemeadow hybrid iron set about 400 bucks. maybe they will sell a starter set at half the price?

Hey Anser, I'm 5'2" and 45, so no help with clubs! But an idea: you're a golfer, with access to courses and golf buddies?  I just did pretty good outfitting a new young couple simply by asking my gang and a few courses what they could spare. We ended up with bags,balls, pull carts, and a decent set of used stuff for each of them.  And that was for a lefty and a short woman, so it was more complicated than your average strong tall guy. 

  Good luck, and great mission.
