I carry a full bag of taylormade clubs and love them. Pings are nice too, also check out Adams.
Gloves are cheap but disposable. Balls are disposable as well but try the Noodle ubtil you only loose 1=2 a round then you can step up to a better ball. I have been playing the Taylormade Burner Pro and really like them but I am hitting thrm further so all m distances are off....
Good luck golf is one of those games that you can have it all or parts or nothing eachtime you go out.
