A possible typo makes a set of $1080 TaylorMade irons $968 off! Only $112 plus free shipping! Ordered a set myself and one for the old lady. Better hurry if you want to get yours! Before they sell out, or realize their mistake!

considering that it's 899 on their official website it's clearly a price mistake. So many people have jumped in that no way it works. It's the no 1 selling club on amazon.

Yep. It is the same price that the 2-iron is listed for on their direct website.

That would be false advertising. They would just cancel all the orders which is what I'm expecting them to do.

Depends on how big of a hit it will be. I don't think they're going to honor this, but I'm moving in a week and I ordered them. :D Free money ya'll!!!!

Worst case scenario is an apology in an email and no charge to your credit card. Absolutely nothing to lose.

Ok this Amazon ad says this:

In Stock.
Ships from and sold by The Golf Warehouse.

Just checked TGW.com and it the 2 iron that is supposed to be at that price. The set of 3-pw is listed at $899. Good luck with that all.

Fuck I have the money, but I am flying out to Maryland on Thursday so if it goes through thats $113 that I wont have out there, but if it does its worth it I guess.

If it does go through, these things are not going to go for $900 on ebay, a million people are going to be selling them.

I might just keep them to have a bitchin set.

Yeah I'm trying to figure out what I'll do with them myself if they actually honor it. Either keep them or try to trade them in for a more "beginner friendly" set. Might try ebay or sell them to a friend or something....then if I really just want money for them there's always pawn shops that won't know ebay is flooded.

There is no way this is going to work. I bought a 13 dollar laser printer a couple of months ago and got a revised email a few days later.

And say people buy 1,000 sets of these at this price. Amazon isn't going to lose almost a million bucks on this one item.

Mr. Flopnuts
07-26-2010, 02:20 AM
Sigh. This is an obvious pricing mistake and unfortunately something this 3rd party vendor for Amazon has done before. I can't even cancel the fucking order now. Here's a post from slickdeals that shows this company has indeed shipped the one club to people before. Get ready to fight these guys over returning 1 club.

From Amazon feedback by the seller The Golf Warehouse. Don't expect the set, they've done this before.

"Seller advertised a set of golf clubs at a $537 discount. Then they tried to send me 1 club instead of a set. This is false advertising. Similar ads continue to run after my complaint."
Date: June 16, 2010 Rated by Buyer: William J.
Seller Response: "There was an obvious error on Amazon's website (there was no mention of a $537.00 discount). The customer was informed of the error and the order was refunded immediately. We are still in the process of rectifying this problem with Amazon. Thank you." Date: June 16, 2010

Buck
07-26-2010, 03:44 AM
Yeah but check this out. They have a separate amazon page just for the 2 iron.

http://www.amazon.com/taylor-made-2ir-kbs-stl/dp/B003MSROLA/ref=sr_1_fkmr2_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1280137379&sr=1-1-fkmr2

The original price is $135.

Since the page we ordered the set from the original price was $1080, this was definitely a price mistake. They can't even make claims that that page was just for the 2 iron.

My apologies, I misunderstood. I don't see how they can even attempt the "one-club" thing. There are too many things that say it's a set (title, original price and savings, shipping weight).
I doubt that the orders are ever shipped. I expect an E-mail soon telling me they have screwed up and all orders will be cancelled.
It just seems very odd to me that they still have the link active and haven't removed it.

Went ahead an cancelled mine. In the reason for cancelling section I put..."This is obviously a typo on your part. You're not going to send me the clubs anyway. You'll probably just send me a 2 iron or even worse yet, a 1 iron (the club that God cannot hit) and it will probably be left handed so I couldn't use it anyway. Then I will have to eat the shipping charges and most likely a restocking fee and then you'll probably double charge my card anyway, so I'll go ahead and stop this before it starts."

It's not going to be a 2-iron I don't think. The 2-iron sells for a different price, and it clearly says you are saving like $750 dollars. Worst case scenario is they pay for the shipping to ship it back.

I have an authorization on my card for the order, but I wonder if that was done at the time of the order as verification of funds.

I think there's about zero chance these ship (at least as a full set), as TGW would lose a shit ton of money. Would be awesome if they did, though...

This kind of stuff happens all the time on the 'net, and nothing ever comes of it.

If it was on SD or fatwallet, there are literally tens of thousands of people who have ordered those clubs. You are talking about multi-million dollars of losses if they go through with this.

You're going to get an email that says, "sorry, but it was a pricing error. We apologize for the inconvenience"'

'Hamas' Jenkins

I used clubs by Snake Eyes this weekend. Are they any good compared to these TaylorMade clubs?

Snake Eyes is another value brand. They wouldn't be considered to be on par with Taylor Made clubs.

The best thing, for you, or any golfer, to do is to get properly fit for clubs.

Far too many people use clubs that are either too long or too short for their bodies, and have a lie angle (the angle of the clubface as it rests on the ground) that is either too upgright (the toe of the club points towards the sky excessively) or too flat (the toe points far too down).

If you are interested in getting the most out of any clubs you have, get fit.

You can do this first, through a static online fitting here:

http://www.ping.com/fitting/default.aspx

And then, for further help, a local PGA pro can watch your swing and ball flight, and recommend further adjustments.

Finally, the one thing that you should realize is that even with properly fit clubs, you won't become good overnight. They'll help, but they aren't a panacea. As Lee Trevino once said, "It's the Indian, not the arrow".

Far too many people use clubs that are either too long or too short for their bodies, and have a lie angle (the angle of the clubface as it rests on the ground) that is either too upgright (the toe of the club points towards the sky excessively) or too flat (the toe points far too down).

If you are interested in getting the most out of any clubs you have, get fit.

You can do this first, through a static online fitting here:

http://www.ping.com/fitting/default.aspx

And then, for further help, a local PGA pro can watch your swing and ball flight, and recommend further adjustments.

Finally, the one thing that you should realize is that even with properly fit clubs, you won't become good overnight. They'll help, but they aren't a panacea. As Lee Trevino once said, "It's the Indian, not the arrow".

Very helpful information. Thank you.

I used clubs by Snake Eyes this weekend. Are they any good compared to these TaylorMade clubs?

IIRC, "Snake Eyes," was the name Golf Smith put on their components, that they sold for assembly.

Our local GS, doesn't sell components anymore, they have gotten big enough now, they have all of the top name brands available. I just bought the Ping G15 driver from them, and they had one heck of a selection including indoor hitting areas.

I was just stunned at how different they felt compared to my Dunlops. They felt much lighter and I could barely feel it on impact.

My son's coach had me hit some balls at the range during his lesson a few weeks ago, and said that I have a "natural swing" and encouraged me to get lessons, but I don't want to do that. I just want to get to the point where my son doesn't beat me every f*cking time.

If you aren't really into it, you don't have to get lessons, and there are times when lessons do more harm than good.

I'm self-taught, but that isn't the route for everyone to go.

Clubs will feel different because they have different swing weights. The more weight of the club that is distributed towards the head, the heavier the club feels. Some like that, others prefer a more evenly distributed feel that makes it seem lighter.

As far as golf balls go, there actually is a pretty big difference, but at an introductory level it doesn't matter nearly as much. Most newer golfers need balls that are a mixture of long distance and low spin. It minimizes the effects of bad shots, and lets them hit all shots a little farther.

Something like a Maxfli Noodle would probably be a perfect ball right now, as it's affordable, and has characteristics that could help a beginning golfer.

No, they're not all the same.

Balls range from basic two-piece construction (core plus cover) to more complex four and five piece construction.

For someone new to the game, I'd recommend an inexpensive two or three piece ball - because you're likely going to lose a lot of them.

Otherwise, my best advise when it comes to golf balls is to choose a ball that's best for your game working from the green backwards. IMO, a golf ball's performance is much more important on and around the green (100 yards and in) than it is off the tee.

We're only playing on par threes and a few executive courses right now. The boy hits it straight every time, and I tend to slice. But putting is where I really screw up (so does he).

He only plays with that Noodle ball, too. I play with whatever my hand touches, but it seems like I play better when I hit a Nike.

I tried to "play my way out of sucking" (i.e., get to where I could actually hit two decent shots in a row and give myself a realistic shot at par or bogey) for a long time, and couldn't quite get there. The most useful thing from my first lesson was when they recorded my swing, and they were able to point out where my swing would break down.

Even then, a lesson doesn't magically fix you. It's still up to you to put in the time and practice to develop better swing habits.

The less swing thoughts on the golf course, the better. Lessons have a tendency to make you think more mechanically, and that is fine for the driving range, but can kill you on the course.

Most people play their best golf when they are relaxed, and have one, or at the most, two swing thoughts. The rest needs to be muscle memory.

I said that if I actually receive the entire set of clubs for that price, and if they wanted them back to piss on it....not that I would be PISSED ABOUT IT. I fully expect them to cancel my order before it is shipped and I'm not going to be pissed about that. I think you kitty kat fans need to work on your reading comprehension.

What I am saying is if you actually receive them for that agreed price, I'm not so sure they have a leg to stand on. Same thing happened to me when I bought supplements online.

They had a 10 lbs of Muscle Juice for $9 something. I bought eight of them. Usual price was $40 or something. They obviously priced it wrong. I ended up receiving them, and they contacted me sending me paid for postage for me to send them back. I never did. I told them it was a waste of my time and I got 8 of them for $9 each saving about $250.

I'm not expecting a good outcome here, but I think that it's comical that TGW is supposedly blaming Amazon for this.

That would be like me listing something on Amazon for $100 and then blaming them because I meant to type $1000.

TGW is pointing the finger at Amazon because it specifically says in the seller's agreement that any fixed price sales must be honored.

8. Your Transactions

a. For sales where a Seller lists goods at a fixed price ("fixed price sales"), the Seller is obligated to sell the goods at the listed price to Buyers who meet the Seller's terms. By listing an item in a fixed price sale, you represent and warrant to prospective Buyers that you have the right and ability to sell, and that the listing is accurate, current, and complete and is not misleading or otherwise deceptive.

b. For fixed price sales, Seller will determine the purchase price for each item he or she lists on the Site via and subject to Amazon.com's standard functionality for listing the purchase price, provided that Seller must abide by the same procedures and guidelines contained in the Help section with respect to pricing.

9. Your Obligation. By entering into this Participation Agreement and posting a listing for fixed price sale, you agree to complete the transaction as described by this Participation Agreement. You acknowledge that by not fulfilling these obligations, your action or inaction may be legally actionable.

WTH...really you believe this? What has our society come too...

If it had been a minor error then sure ok honor the price, but a clear and huge error wtf...

OK let's ask the hypothetical situation.

You go to the local Sears store and buy a blender for $90 and give the cashier $100.

Instead of giving you $10 back the cashier accidentally gives you $90 back. What do you do?

Now what if instead of sears it was a local family owned store, what do you do?

What if it was your friend or your mom as the cashier...then what do you do?

At what point does taking advantage of a clear mistake become wrong?

While I see what you are saying, it's not the same comparison. A comparison would be if you were shopping at Costco and you saw a Shed that was for $2000, and in reality it was supposed to be priced at $3000. Is Costco supposed to honor the sticker price?

Some would say yes, some would say no. It's a matter of opinion. To this degree, I would say that Amazon doesn't owe anything to anybody if they contact you tell you it was an error and a mistake. They shouldn't have to honor the misquoted price. BUT, they sure as hell better make sure those things don't get shipped. Because nobody owes them to ship it back either.

While I don't fault people for trying(even if I think it's a moral grey zone if you know it's a mistake), and I agree if they ship it there is no obligation to return. What rubs me raw is people feeling like they are entitled to compensation for a pretty clear mistake they tried to take advantage of. That to me is when people just need to STFU.

That's why there are laws to protect companies against the bottom-feeding carps that infest our society.

You're not very smart.

Yeah I just saw the facebook page. None of these things are gettin' shipped except for maybe the first few people that ordered. I don't even care if it takes them a while to take it off. I get 5% cash back on sports apparel and sports stores...so that just about $22 of money my credit card company has to pay me until they refund me ha.

Not that i expected anything different but it is still kind of shitty. In the construction business if you misquote someone a price and they purchase it your stuck supplying it, you can't just cancel a customers order.

What's the big deal? They'll charge your card back maybe towards the end of the week. It's a credit card. It's not even real money yet. If I don't have my money back by Friday then I'd be worried.

I'm just saying they should pre-authorize anything that they don't know for certain they are going to ship.

Like I said earlier, I have no problem with them canceling these orders, but I've seen deals on Amazon before for items that were 10% of their original cost that weren't price mistakes. There was always this chance here.

Dude, sure, it was an honest error. They still charged his card for something they knew they weren't going to ship for that price.

Also, they are blaming Amazon for this, when it was clearly their fault. When you sell something on Amazon, you input the prices.

This isn't the first time the company in question has done this.

So even if all of these "honest errors/oversights" are just that - honest - then at the very least they need to revisit how they operate and who's responsible for making this "honest error" repeatedly.

I've seen and bought several items at 10% of MSRP before on Amazon, so to accuse someone of trying to "rape someone" is going a bit overboard.

true, and in the good old days, I myself got some fantastic deals on price mistakes. Before the advent of slickdeals and fatwallet, companies could afford to eat the cost of a half dozen mistaken orders. Now people on slickdeals (I actually saw this) boast of ordering over 60 sets of clubs.

No way can a company survive that. And you have to remember that a company like TGW is running it's own site and selling through other outlets at the same time, you're talking tens of thousands of products. I guarantee you right now there's at least a dozen errors in pricing on their sites, but most are small enough they aren't noticed.

It works both ways, I've seen $10 items priced at $10k too.

I just calculated my rewards last month and they didn't take anything away when I took something back. Either way, I don't really care if it takes them a while to get me my money back. And I bought more than one of these things. I mean they are $112 a piece. $112 shouldn't cause ANYBODY a cash flow problem.

if you return an item and the merchant credits the charge back to your card they do reduce your rewards accordingly.

If you read back through the first page or so where folks were ordering clubs, it was damn near a given that it was a mistake and the price would not be honored, however in that these sites commonly sell things at a huge discount one would have been foolish had he been looking for a decent set of clubs and not tried it.

When you jump on pricing mistakes like this, you are playing with fire. Don't be surprised when you have some funds tied up for a significant amount of time.

Some pricing errors work out in the customers favor, others do not. Sure, it's Amazons fault for inputting the price wrong, but IMO, each customer that placed the order knew damn well they weren't going to get that price.

Didn't it occur to any of you that placed orders that you may get tangled up in this mess since tens of thousands of people jumped on this error as well?

It's all part of the fatwallet/slickdeals/etc pricing error game. Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. It's not stealing, but you have no right to bitch if your funds are tied up either, IMO.

From the owner...

Folks,
We work in partnership with Amazon. We send them a product feed. Their system digests it then displays the products on their site. The TGW feed was received at Amazon, their system inadvertently changed the set price to the same price as the single club price causing the issue. You guys can spin this anyway you want, but those are the facts. Nothing beyond that.

This morning some of you brought to our attention some correctly priced single price clubs that had product descriptions which included references to sets. These were not incorrectly priced as the previous problem, but were confusing in presentation. We've corrected those or are in process. We've tried to be open and transparent here. Profanity, inappropriate personal information/attacks or spam-like info is deleted by the moderator. As I said this am, we're working with Amazon to have further communications this afternoon. Please be patient to watch for
that. Brad.


Yep, its all Amazon's fault. LMAO

Man it just keeps getting better. My favorite so far are the posters who are arguing that TGW's parent company should pay for the clubs out of the "Goodwill Account" listed on their balance sheet. ROFL

I hope that most of the people on there are messing around or humanity is much closer to the apocalypse than I thought.

I'm in a similar situation, Ed.

I was finally cleared to start practicing after knee surgery in May, but not having picked up clubs since late March.

I feel like I've never played golf before.

That is not always a bad thing, you have a chance to erase some possible bad habits.


But yeah, I feel for you, not having played in a while. As my pro tells me, once you get to a certain level, it is between your ears and the putter. Having confidence is huge, and that only comes from good play and pleasant memories.

So as long as we're talking about golf clubs.....

I really am in the market for a new set of irons and would love to hear suggestions from anyone who cares to chime in.

I only play a few times a year but I'm hoping to play more often in the future. These days I shoot around 100 or a little over. In the past when I played more frequently I was usually 85-95. My current irons (very old Wilsons) are steel shaft and I think that's probably what I prefer - but maybe not. I'm open to suggestions. I bought a driver last year with a graphite shaft, regular flex and it has a little more whip than I'd like.

My price range is ~$500 or so. I wouldn't mind spending less but at the same time I'd spend more if I saw the value. I prefer to buy from a local business over online retailers but a good enough deal can prompt me to reassess my priorities.

Incidentally - I hit my long irons well. The 3 iron is probably the most consistent club in the bag. Anything inside about 120 and I'm worthless.

Another 90% discount from The Golf Warehouse

That is a real misleading add. It appears to be for one club, a lob wedge. I have no idea where they came up with that retail price.

They are a couple of years old, but IMO, the best game improvement iron for the money.

Ping G5 Irons.

Make sure you get a professional fitting, then call a place called Discount Dan's. They should be able to get them for you cheaper than the $400 I regularly see them listed at.

Even at $400, they're a steal. Ping's are known for their design, quality and customer service - plus Ping's hold their value better than any other manufacturer out there.

I also hover around the 100 mark, although the last couple summers I've been able to drop that a bit.

Part of the reason is my investment in a new set of Ping G10's last summer. I bought them right after the G15's came out so I paid somewhere around $600 for them, which I thought was very fair.

I went out with my pro and hit a bunch of different clubs at the range. For me, the Pings were noticeably more forgiving than any of the others.

Golf equipment is like a bowling ball.

These companies keeping coming out each year with the latest and greatest equipment, that will make a hacker play like a pro. Even though, it is pretty much the same thing, with a different shine on it, most of the time.

I found it funny, when I went to GolfSmith on Monday at lunch. The return line was very long, with players that didn't shoot par, or hit their drives 300 yards on Sunday.


Personally the easier a club is to hit, it seems the lazier I get. But I play with R7 Irons (http://www.3balls.com/product-productid/281458/TAYLORMADE-MENS-R7-IRONS-RH-USED/utm_source/yahoo) that have graphite shafts, and highly recommend them. They are pretty cheap now, since they have the r9 out.

Amazon R9 TP Price Error:

Unfortunately, we recently discovered an error on Amazon's website that published an incorrect price for the TaylorMade R9 TP 3-PW Steel sets. This was an Amazon feed error that has since been corrected.

Amazon has now issued cancellations for the mistakenly priced item. No credit cards were charged.

The following is a statement from Amazon: "At any given time, despite our best efforts, a small number of the millions of items on our site may be mispriced. We're very sorry for this disappointing news."

We know that this is disappointing news to those of you who thought you were getting a full set for this unreal price.

Again, we at TGW.com apologize for Amazon's pricing mistake on our equipment. We are working diligently with Amazon to make 100% sure that this does not happen again.

Well if it's Amazon's mistake then he's somewhat off the hook, if it's his companies mistake Amazon's seller policy works against him. I wouldn't expect anything else. He shouldn't have thrown Amazon under the bus as quickly as he did though. Now he's stuck playing the blame game.

No, but they likely are the first company to do this 3 times in a month.

These "pricing errors" have become a trend for TGW. I have no expectations of financial compensation, but I will tell my golfing buddies to think twice before ordering with them - because it's obvious they have some serious problems.

Add to that, a "C" rating from the BBB.

Not the kind of company I'd recommend, that's for sure.
