How many strokes would be added to your score if you played a set of Walmart clubs over your current set?

I suspect not many. So what is the worth of your irons- how much are you willing to pay to knock 4 strokes off your game?

I'd shoot 95-100. I've borrowed a set of WalMart uniflex clubs. No bueno.

Craigslist baby.

BTW, thanks for trolling me. :) That's another Streamsong round you owe me after I saved you $3000.

I don't think you would shoot so high now. Put it this way. For 4-5 years I played hickory shafted clubs from the 1920s and could shoot in the 70s with them. I guarantee the Walmart clubs have more technology that those clubs from the 1920s.

Now there may be an adjustment period between your current set and those Walmart clubs, but I believe it.

Imagine a handicapped tournament where the higher handicapper were allowed to use modern high end equipment. The mid tier handicappers get Walmart clubs and the single digits have to use hickory shafted clubs.

That could be fun.

I'd like to see the "Play it again Sports Challenge"

You get $50 to put together a set of clubs from the used inventory and purchase balls from the giant bin of used balls.

The irons I'm using now are in their 5th year of my use, so they've got signs of wear and tear. As a result, I don't think I'd do all that differently. Only thing that might inflate my score a bit is the comfort factor I have with my current set.

Hard to say. Depends on the variance in shaft weight and flex.
But I probably can't play much worse then I'm now.
Probably improve a couple of strokes.

I think the lost strokes would be around the greens. Ball striking wise I don't think I would have a problem, but having specialty wedges like a Gap wedge and Lob wedge would add the strokes to the round. It's hard to hit a long flop or a bunker shot with a PW.

Those clubs are basically perimeter weighted oversized irons.
