Any advice about buying golf clubs?

Why not surprise him? Take him out for lunch then stop by Sports Authority or a similar store and have him pick out his own? Does he know you are doing this? If not, it would knock his socks off.

Is a 3 Wood a club for teeing off or for hitting off the ground?

Get them fitted. Let him select them because clubs can be very personel. I like Calaway but they are not for everyone. This shaft height can be a big difference as well. That is why you should get them fitted.

The most important criteria to consider for irons is Cast heads with Cavity backs! These clubs are the most forgiving and better for the masses, as compared to forged clubs (which are for low handicappers or professionals).

A normal set of irons are a 3 iron through Pitching Wedge. A good Sand Wedge is needed along with a putter and some sort of woods (Driver = 1 wood). A 3 and 5 wood come in handy if the golfer plays a lot of golf, but not needed.

One of the main considerations will be his skill level. If he is a beginner I would get him the game improvement models that are easier to hit.

Every avid golfer has a eye out for a certain brand/model that they would like to try...GolfSmith.com has just about every brand out there .Good Luck

Will I make the Team?

You can't pick out the clubs that are right for him. Ask him in a round about way or surprise him on his birthday with a visit to a golf shop where he can be fitted and choose. Be prepared to spend over $1,000 or maybe you want to just get him a new set of woods for maybe $700, a new set of fairway woods for $400, or a new driver for $400. There are also lob wedges and gap wedges or a putter for under $100. My whole set cost $1,200 plus tax at a discounted price. The bag was $150 and the shoes were $130.

If you get an exact model number, shaft stiffness, lie and loft out of him, you can get them on Ebay at better prices but, if something happens to them, a head comes off or something, you won't have any place to take them back to.

Do they sell the 3M Greptile Grip golf gloves anywhere in St. Louis?

the only right thing to do is to find a golf professional, get a gift certificate and have him/her fit a set of irons to him specifically. if he can 'only' play name brands than you will have to research that. a lot of people fit knockoffs and off brands. some off brands easily complete and are sometimes better than major name brands. a couple of these companies are kzg and nakashima. if you have to get him a physical product then just buy anything and ask them if he can return it and get fitted for something he likes or has had his eye on.

by the way, you should be doing your homework and finding out what irons he wants. i mean he's your bf. if you don't listen to him ramble on about 'useless' talk of golf, then how will you know when he will say i really want these but...

My babe thinks the only club out there is CALLAWAY, personally I think NIKE is the way to go. When I hit with Callaway it sounds like CRACK. With Nike, when I hit that golf ball it sounds like a sweet SWOOSH, amazingly beautiful. Golf isn't my game, but if it was it would be NIKE all the way.
