And he skies his $500 driver for 165 yards barely carried the water.

He should spend money on lessons if he hasn’t.......

At least he looks good!

If he chooses to spend money on that stuff, more power to him. I started buying nice things pretty much as soon as I picked up the sport.. everyone's gotta start somewhere. For all you know, he's spending just as much on lessons.

It's not like you have to be a race car driver to buy a ferrari. :dntknw:

I have no room to talk or chirp here.

I buy nice golf clothing and equipment each year.

I only have one hobby. I don't drink or go to bars at all. Don't do yoga retreats, or camping or buy skidoos and boats.

In all honesty my wife has it better than most with what I spend on golf. I've never come home with a 30 thousand dollar quad or a Harley.

It's his money. How he chooses to spend it is his business, and it doesn't affect anyone else's golf game. If he uses iron head covers, and has a staff bag, that's okay too.

Attitudes like this crack me up.

Maybe spending money on clothing, or equipment, or a nice course, or lessons, or whatever isnt an either / or proposition for this guy.  Maybe whether he spend $10k, or $20k or $50k a year on golf doesnít really move the needle for him.

Just because someone is a beginner or doesnít have a lot of talent for the game doesnít mean they have to dress like a slob or play crappy equipment.

Calling someone out for wearing nice clothes and having expensive equipment says more about the person doing the calling out than it does about the guy out there enjoying his nice stuff.

I had someone tell me yesterday that I wasn't a discerning golfer because I only carried 2 wedges (I carry 4, but only 2 are wedge brand, the other two are part of the iron set)...

I'll happily take their money all day long.

A similar "argument" can/has been said about the guy with a full bag from Wally World and plays in jeans.  That person can still smoke you.   Doesnt matter what they look like or whats in the bag.  You may think that he looks like an idiot, but the game is meant to be fun and if he is doing that, who are we to judge.

People get nervous on the first tee, so what.  Maybe he ended up having a decent round.  What's interesting is that you had to come here and tell us about it.  If you had an issue, take it up with him directly.

Hats around here seem to hold their value better than shirts or pants LOL. I always end up spending like 25$ on a hat.

But you walk into any store and there's shirts and pants discounted. No one discounts hats. They are like Bentleys or Rolls Royces, you pay full ask for them or you go hatless

Makes 400k, can afford to blow some cash, has a hot wife, great house, lots of friends, and occasionally plays golf just for the fun of it without judging folks or having delusions that he's a few good rounds from the tour?

Wait?  What?  A loser?  I've dropped $30 on a hat.  Kangol, Tropic Ventair Ivy Leaguer.  Guess I'm a double loser.  Dropped the coinage AND appearing the poser.  But have a tendency to wear it backwards.  Thereby mitigating some of the posing.  Or does that qualify as being a triple loser?  IDK.  Whatever.

I get that a lot, and I rarely shoot under 85.

Little does everyone know, I get all my Nike stuff at the clearance store for $10 a piece, which is less than your walmart stuff. So...ha!

I'm not aspiring to go pro. I'm just out there to play relatively well and have fun, enjoy the day, and wear comfortable/good quality stuff.

Long Live Nike
