Stumbled into the local Golf Galaxy today, not looking for anything in particular but killing time more or less. I have been on the hunt for a 52* wedge though that I could bend 1* strong to a 51*. I meander over to the used sections and there is a damn near brand new 52* Vokey sitting there, marked as "pre-owned" even though the face seriously looks like it never has touched a ball. Right next to it is another 52* Vokey for 71.99, not a bad deal but this one is pretty nicked up and shows some definite use. I then glance down at the sticker on the "new" one and it says $63.99.......SERIOUSLY??? A basically brand new Vokey SM for 64.00? Can't pass it up, bring it to the counter and the dude says, this is "pre-owned", looks like it never hit a ball. He then says, there is a deal right now on "pre-owned" purchases and you get another 15% off, sweet, down to $55.00 now and I also have a $10.00 rewards cert that I haven't cashed in yet so I used that and basically get a brand new Vokey for $45.00.

Thought that was a good score.......had it bent to a 51* and new grip installed, out the door total $54.00........happy camper!!!:drinks:

Just bought a set of uncut PX 5.0 irons shafts for $95 on the bay from seller GolfBestBuy. They evidently bought a big stock of PX iron shaft sets from someone that was going out of business. Most of the auctions are going for between $70-120 before shipping. Most of the sets are either 5.0 or 5.5 in standard or flighted.

Negative, this was at the Roseville location. However, I know they do have a really nice pair of Cleveland CG16's, black pearl, in a 54* and 58* for I think 58.99, another good deal but was only looking for the one.

Wilson FF 2 iron
MacGregor Murfield (Not 20th) JN 2 iron
Wilson FG17 6 iron
2 other forged blades
1 persimmon 1 wood

All for a dollar a piece. Every single one was in fantastic shape, less the grips on 2. The FG17 grip appeared to have never been used. I'm sad that I didn't find the entire set. I wanted to get a set of cheap blades to see if I should play them, but a few for the range and yard is good with me. I feel like I scored big time.
