As some of you know I volunteer my time coaching golfers in middle school and high school....each year we have a number of kids who can't afford _______________________.  If I could, I would insert some type of really emotionally appealing video here...Honestly, these kids have nothing and while the majority of them work hard and have parents who do anything they can do to help and be supportive, the cost is simply too much.  

These kids are so appreciative...and their smiles are so big and amazing when I tell them the clubs they are holding are theirs to keep!  Generally, they don't have anything and I will take anything, but especially,

Clubs
Balls
Gloves
Tees
Etc.

If you'd like to help out, but don't have clubs, please feel free to PM me with other options!

Honestly, we will take whatever you have. I do some club work myself and donate all of my time/materials, etc. I also have a couple other local golf shops lined up who are willing to donate services if clubs need to be shortened...new grips, etc...

Thanks for considering and please PM me if you have questions or other ideas...

If you guys could use them, please PM me your shipping address.

How about instead of trying to cut in on what the OP is trying to do for the kids he helps you sell some of the "bait" you say you have in your most recent WTB ad and go buy a shaft yourself.

Hey topekareal my buddy has my set of TA7s and he's out of town but is getting back in tonight. I'll get them from him this weekend and then send them out. The head came off the pitching wedge but could be fixed, do you want me to include it?

Seeing as my local First-Tee program is overstocked - how about a set of Callaway X-12's + 1/2in and a Titleist 585H 17*?
Maybe there's a tall kid that would benefit from the longer shafts.
PM me an address and I'll try and get them shipped next week.

Nice thread-jack.  I don't see how this has anything to do with the OP and his efforts.  See the difference?

Mike is a good kid. Regardless of how he goes about making a need known, we shouldn't overlook the fact that a Junior Golfer is asking for our help.

I think I have a solution that will benefit everyone in need. To someone who has a shaft that fits Mike's need, fix him up and let me know and I will send a brand new Callaway Diablo Octane 9.5* with a Harrison stiff shaft, head-cover included, to the OP. The main thing to remember is this is helping young Golfers, no matter how we get there.

Topekareal, I know I will be needing your address, send it to me when you have a chance.
