This is as full set of irons, 3-SW, 1,3,5, (w/ brand new head covers) and a TaylorMade R5 over-sized driver. The bag includes built-in club tubes to protect the handles and shafts, a large front zippered front compartment, with plenty of room for the bag cover, rain gear, additional boxes of balls, and/or gloves. Although it's got a few years on it, it's quite light enough to carry, put on a pull cart or easily place on the back of a golf cart. Not to mention how easy it is to get in and out of your vehicle. In addition, this comes with a golf bag skirt that fits snugly around the upper part of the bag which allows for easy and quick access to any number of items. Plus, there's an umbrella (not the original, but mid-sized, a new club cleaner, an attractive/new pouch for storing all personal items, (Wallet, watch, money clip, wedding ring, etc., or whatever else, such as tees, balls, ball markers, divot repairers, pencils, etc., all of which are included). There is a once worn and very convenient, (Easy to get in and out of) XL Totes Rain Jacket and Pants. The XL is especially important since you'll be covering your regular clothes and still need to be loose enough to take regular full swings. There are 50 practice balls, (about a dozen's worth that are playable) and there is a brand new box/dozen Titleist NXT Tour balls. There are no golf shoes, but the buyer will get his choice of a nice free surprise. Most people have never heard of this brand of clubs. These were made by a company name AGS, or Advantage Golf Systems, that was out of Bradenton, FL. They clearly had the right designers, manufacturing processes, and the like. However, this company was founded during the ".com" era, where Multiple Level Marketing was all the rage. Although it started out quickly, like so many other companies founded under the same principle, it just couldn't sustain its growth. Although I haven't played them in the past four years, for personal/health related reasons, I wouldn't hesitate to take these out tomorrow if I could. The irons are Ping clones/square grooved, with slightly over-sized grips, which really help to control your shot from the back swing all the way to ball contact and through your swing. The woods are metal. If you can hit your fairway woods well, you'll love the 3 & the 5. If you struggle a little with your fairway woods, after some practice, you'll put those irons away for long shots, and stop laying up! The irons and woods have TrueTemper steel "S" shafts. The Driver has a small ding on the top left side of the head, thanks to one huge fat over-swing, but still plays well. However, the TaylorMade R5, has a Titanium Head, a Graphite "M" shaft, (no deed to try and kill your drive), and can still hit a ball a country mile. Although 13 clubs are regulation, and what the bag is designed to fit, there are two putters. One is a "Golf Smith" original, when they were still a catalog only golf company. This is ideal for the guy who likes a slightly longer putter. The other one, followed the original Ping design, that many Pros still use, but follows the insert vs. milled design. This is a ContRoll SP01, Milled Polymer Putter. If you've got soft hands and decent control/speed on the greens, you'll love this putter. However, this is a game of inches, so you have the choice between two completely different styles. Practice, and see which one you like, unless you've paid outrageous money for a two-ball or other hybrid putter, that works for you. You can never tell until you practice with them and take it/them on a real round.
If you've already got a set that's newer/fits your game better, for the price, this is an excellent set for one of your traveling buddies, who's passing through and has time for a quick round. As opposed to dragging his/her clubs along with them during a short stay. I hope the pictures say enough for themselves. Don't forget the free surprise for whomever purchases this set. Another, set for the same purpose will follow on this site soon.
