How do I not sound like an idiot when buying golf clubs?

I’m in college and trying to get into golfing with my buddies. I am planning on buying a used set tomorrow off of someone from Craigslist. Is there anything I should look for or know to not sound like an idiot?

  1. The best way to avoid sounding like an idiot is to openly acknowledge what you know and don’t know.

    Do a little homework first, so you can ask the right questions, but it’s okay if you don’t have all the answers.

  2. [Here is a decent guide.](

    You’ll figure out which clubs work best for your purposes and your style/strengths with more practice. You could also scour a Goodwill in a fancy neighborhood to find some sets.

    Don’t worry about sounding like an idiot. Craigslist seller won’t care. They just want to make a buck on whatever they’re selling and move on.

  3. What are the clubs? Lets start with quality and features. Then decide if the price matches that and then if the clubs match you. What’s the sets age. How many clubs, what are they (number of woods, irons, hybrids,) and what brand are they, whats the asking price. A lot of info but it’s an involved game…

  4. I would think a little research about how to tell if the clubs are the right size for you might be handy. Otherwise for just beginning and trying out the sport, try not to spend too much.
