Saw these at a thrift store and I hadn't come across them before in my vintage iron hunting. The irons are labeled as "Tour Forged" and the woods say "Keysite".

I didn't see them in my Kaplan book. Any history from one of the Mac experts here? Are they sought after? They're in great shape! Haven't hit them yet.

Thanks in advance!

    I have a set of those irons but do not know a lot about them other than mine have the boxed grooved faces on them like a 985 Tourney Custom. When I say boxed grooves that does not have anything to do with the groove shape itself but having the lines vertical at the end of the grooves instead of the famous Macgregor Diamonds. I had forgotten I had a set of those until you posted yours

    1. I knew you'd know something about them!

    2. Here's a pic of the grooves (boxed?)

    The MacGregor Tour woods and irons were from the mid 1980s and were one of those lines that were in between the pro line items in the catalog and the dealer line merchandise. A quality offering for the customer that wanted such but didn't want to pay top of the line prices. Discount chains offered a lot of that sort of choice back then.

    They were available through Special Tee Golf stores in the Midwest and in Florida, but that may not be the only place they could be found. It's just where I remember seeing them. I strongly considered buying a set of them back then.

    The "Classic" wedges were a pro line offering that were in the MacGregor catalog during the mid 1980s.

    Good info. You guys are true historians and I appreciate all the insight.

    I hit a few into my net in the garage and they have a nice, soft feel. They felt better with higher swing speed than slower.
