If you are getting into Golf you may want to avoid Taylor Made stuff. Seeing as to how they are owned by Adidas.
If you want be cool and have good clubs not many will know about you can find some Yonex clubs. Mickelson used to use Yonex clubs until 2000.
Callaway is #1 as far as sales. My friend Paul says most of the pros are using clubs that are cast by Mizuno and swears by his Mizuno's.
If I were starting to get back into it I would try to get Yonex if they were around. Or I would go with Cobra golf. Cobra is owned by Puma so its like a revers stickin it to Adidas becuase Puma is like Adidas brothers company.
Wilson makes good clubs as well.
