|My beginner set of Knight brand golf clubs.|
Ready for a new owner.
|Wayne's set is ready for a new home too.|
Now, though, without any golf clubs, we would be forced to get serious about making a decision on brands, models, price and then the final step of making the purchases. Being hardest to please, we concentrated on Wayne first. We did our homework about golf clubs for seniors and began researching the brands and models that we felt best suited for us.We both settled on the idea of graphite clubs. Ladies for me -- seniors for him.
While golf courses are plentiful in this area, golf equipment retailers aren't. The nearby pro shops had only a few sets, very limited brands and we couldn't get enough personalized attention to get serious about buying from them. We knew we needed to be properly fitted and we wanted plenty of practice swings to make a decision and that would take someone to take an interest.

He has a serious look but actually has a very good sense of humor.
It was needed to outfit me with golf clubs.

Louise and Arthur know what's in all the boxes and all the bins in all the rooms in every section of this store.
