I ordered traditional and got Norman blue (light blue) and gray shorts.  Agree with the not worth $50, but was worth the $25...Will give it a few more months and see how it goes.

I do have to send shirt back (too large), so I'll followup with how the service is on that.

That's so lame that everyone is getting the same thing. Let's all show up somewhere and play a round in our new outfits.

I'm pretty unhappy with this month.  I also only paid 25 dollars and chose athletic.   I got a Large Navy Greg Norman Polo that isn't athletic at all, its huge and baggy.   I also got the grey shorts that are just okay.  I'm tall so they are too short, (in fairness only half of company's shorts are typically long enough for me)  I also saw Jordan and Fowler when picking, and thought I would get a brand that I typically wear, not the 70% discount Greg Norman Macy's golf wear.

I will be cancelling in the morning.   Sucks you have to call their help line, I'm sure its going to be trouble.

I'm not sure if they sent the wrong size shorts (I don't have the shorts with me) but the shorts are not even close to fitting. I wear size 38 in Nike, puma, polo, etc. Did anyone else find they run small, or did I get the wrong size?
After a lot of testing my bag is pretty much set. I will be testing a Tensei Orange soon, and I might test the 0311 irons. I am thinking I might have to replace my wedges soon as I have used my current set for a full season, but I am wary of switching. Teh Spider Limited is firmly in the bag. Best putter I have ever used.

I chose "wild and crazy".  Got Greg Norman.  Red gingam style shorts and a red polo.  More like " Al Czervik" than today's wild and colorful.   Lame-o.

My shorts were a little loose but I've lost some weight. There's another pair on BST now. I get the sense there are a lot of unhappy customers tonight.

Saw that, let me know if you are interested I the size 38 for the 40.

Looks like someone is selling their whole package trying to make a tidy profit haha

If I could make sure I would get clothing that fits right I would try it a bit longer, but I can usually get puma/oakley polos for around $25, same price for the shorts. I prefer getting a brand I like for sure and knowing what I'll get will be good. it would have been nice if they gave out decent items this first time to get people to join and stay.

I'm also pretty disappointed with the box, but thankfully I only paid $25 for it. I will be cancelling it tomorrow though or else I may forget about it and end up getting charged $45 for this.  I don't like how they advertise that they include clothes from top brands, but then give you a department store brand. In the end it was worth the risk for just $25, and it was pretty fun not knowing what you're getting, but after this box I would never risk $45 on this.

agree with poster above. Shorts ran small, shirt ran big. Good deal for $25 but $45 would have been disappointing.

I'm super upset reading all of these posts. Mine isn't going to show up until tomorrow and I picked the athletic, like many of you, and if I get some crappy Greg Norman clothes I'll be very unhappy.

I wonder if they sent a brand like Norman because of the $20 off coupon everyone used. I'm curious if I pay $45 if I'll get better clothes.

I am betting they were hit with huge numbers this month because of the $20 off coupon. That's why I want to try it another couple months and see how it goes. Maybe I can stick it out and end up with some cool stuff.

I can't imagine that they would do that.  The $25 deal was obviously to try to get a lot of people to sign up, so by sending them junk you're basically just assuring yourself that everyone that you got in for $25 will now cancel.  Also, I noticed that you now have to call them to cancel, but before you could cancel online, so it seems like they're trying to make it hard to cancel now too.

Lol what am I going to get next month? Some Kmart gear. Who the hell wants Greg Norman garbage in a blind box deal I would have been happier if the box had been empty. I see that junk at Macy's and never even give it a second look and now it is actually occupying space in my house.

I got the same crap, in will be canceling as well. Don't get me wrong, it's decent for $25, but Greg Norman isn't on the same level as UA or TM( which they advertise). I can get a pair of shorts and a polo for almost the same price from Costco or TJ max, and the get to choose the color and style. if I am buying a grab bag sight unseen I expect a little more than mostly bargain brands

I want to give them the benefit of the doubt but I think this a failed business model. I'd rather spend more money and get what I want than get some junk Greg Norman stuff. Nothing against him but his clothes aren't for me. I can't help but laught at the people trying to sell the stuff on the BST

Ive never owned Greg Norman stuff.  the shorts aren't bad, shirt is OK.. I am going to give it one more month.  If they ship stuff on the 15th and then immediately start trying to locate a huge deal from a retailer for last years stuff then it won't be long until this little company is a shanked wedge into a short par 4.  it sounds like a great idea, but if its just junk that you could buy off the sale rack at Macy's or TJ Maxx then im out.

Did you guys honestly think you were going to get some Oakley shirt and shorts that each retail for 75 bucks,  for 25 total? Come on.  The first ashworth one looked like a pretty good deal to me.

I think what bothers me the most is that everyone got the same stuff. It would have been nice to know that you weren't getting the exact same outfit as every other guy out there. I thought they had all these clothes and just picked stuff at random. It's more like they got a large shipment of one thing and that's it. As for calling us losers, that's totally uncalled for. I paid and I'm entitled to my opinion.

I'll second this. I planned on getting a random assortment worth roughly $100. The fact that everyone got the same thing adds to my disappointment.

Edit: I reread some of the earlier posts and I got different shorts than everyone else. I ordered athletic and got light blue shorts that I'm not too unhappy with. I did get the same navy blue shirt though.

I'm not saying I expected a full puma/Oakley/Nike outfit, but i would have preferred a nice puma shirt over the weird sized Greg Norman shirt and shorts. Don't advertise puma and under armour if you actually ship out a completely different product.

They could have gained a big following by shipping out decent product from this special, instead they got a lot of disgruntled people who are going to cancel and post their stories here on the forum.

After a lot of testing my bag is pretty much set. I will be testing a Tensei Orange soon, and I might test the 0311 irons. I am thinking I might have to replace my wedges soon as I have used my current set for a full season, but I am wary of switching. Teh Spider Limited is firmly in the bag.

I can't wear the shorts, and it sounds like the shirt fits like a tent. Personally, I prefer quality over quantity.

Lesson learned I guess.

For $45 I already found a nice Oakley shirt and pair of puma shorts. (Maybe I should start a company)
