It's probably very good, prices these days suggest you can get quality kit for not too much.
I have always used Callaway 3 woods (including original big berthas and now a classic steelhead). Chances are you could pick up a 2nd hand 3 wood made by some of the big names for similar money......I've never bought a new wood......
it was in this months mag as part of building a good budget set and gm priced it at Â£39 but ive seen it for Â£30 so might get it as at the mo im using a dunlop package set from argos and slowly gona change the woods and driver.got a tm burner rescue but cant afford all top price clubs so it looks like this will be my only quality club for a while.
Well, if you are playing with a "package" set chances are this will be better (not wishing to criticise dunlop).
But you are doing absolutley the right thing to get a good 3 wood. When I started, my hcap was 24, then quickly 21. I joined another club and went down over 12-18 months to about 9. I did this without a driver (I had one, but didn't use it in serious play). With a set of irons, a 3 wood and some rescue club, you should be in good shape, probably better than buying a driver.
I still wouldn't rule out finding a sweet bargain at a pro shop or driving range. At my range we have lots of 3 woods (2nd/3rd hand) Callaway, Ping, T/M, Titleist etc all around the Â£25-50 mark....some gems for the canny buyer.
If GM rate it, it must be good though, experienced players don't like stuff that looks odd/sits funny or simply fails to hit good shots!!!
Dave im gona try my local pro shop and range to see what they got so thanks for that.ive been looking thru ebay for days hoping to steel a bargain on a top brand club but everyones willing to bid near to new prices for second hand clubs which is a bit silly.
At the moment i only play with my irons and rescue.accuracy is not to good with my woods and driver.ive still got lots to improve on in my swing(had 3 lessons)so hoping with a better wood i can get a bit more accurate.thanks
