The one club you'd never sell for sentimental reasons

nuttinbutapeanutnuttinbutapeanut Members Posts: 102 ✭✭
Of all the clubs I've gone through since I started back golfing in 1989 there is one club I promised myself I'd never sell because it was my first real store bought putter. An original Ping Anser that I had countless years of success with. Everything else is fare game for sale or trade...

    3 now.

    My grandpa’s putter, my Dad’s putter, & my Lajosi. Have a Mannkrafted hopefully coming down the pipe in the near future I’ll be holding on to as well.

    My '03/04 TM RAC TP Combos. Made my first hole in one with the 6 iron. Moved on to more forgiving sets, but still held onto these, and a few years ago during the winter got the chrome stripped and removed all bag chatter/dings and had them refinished in Black Nitride. Still my backup set today, will never get rid of those.

    My Titleist 907 D1 Driver that I made my second hole in one with, this time on a 286 par 4. It will most likely never see the light of day again and live out it's days in a cherished spot in my basement man cave, but it will never be gotten rid of as a H-I-O on a par 4 is one of the rarest feats in golf. Still has the same GP TV grip (which is slick as **** now, but surprisingly not brittle), and that OG Speeder 757 shaft. If anything ever happened to that club, I'd do my best to save that shaft.

    Other than that, I have a Ray Cook 8802 style putter that I pulled out of my Dad's bag right after he died and I was in town for the funeral. I've never "gamed" it, but it won't be going anywhere, ever, since its one of the few possessions of his that I still have. Some people get a watch, or some other trinket that has some value. That $26 putter has more value to me than a Rolex.

    Man has that been clutch and pissed off so many playing partners.

    I only have 2 faces on my Mt. Rushmore, 56 f grind SM4 and that two iron.

    I literally had an awkward moment when someone took it out of my bag and threatened to snap it.... 3 hole lead on 13, bet your a$$ I'm ripping that thing.

    The first pro-line golf club I ever owned...Ray Cook, Nugget 18 putter. My mother bought it for me for a birthday gift. Putted with it for years. It's heavy as **** and very easy to make a long smooth stroke with. Great lag putter. It still gets a minimum 2-3 week tour in the bag each year whenever I lose my touch and need to get the feel back of putting a good roll on the ball.

    Baby Blades.

    Needed traveling funds when my Uncle was ill with esophageal cancer. Was frequently commuting to and from NC to NJ/PA. I pawned my clubs to help make the trips. He eventually passed. RIP III. My clubs sold before I could get them back. I went some time without clubs, 8-10 months, maybe. The Baby Blades were the set I eventually purchased. I don't think I could ever part with them.

    Original Callaway Steelhead 4+ With DGX100 Lite steel shaft.

    Loved it while I played it for many years and still have it in the basement to take out to let whatever my current 3/4 wood may be know that it can be replaced.

    It is not as long as current 3/4 woods but I hit it a consistent distance and it was straight. The X100 is a little stiff for me now so I am still searching for the same magic in a 3/4/5 wood.

    Clubs of mine.....

    I have the 3 wood (Callaway S2H2) and irons (Maxfli VHL) that I played my senior year of High School golf with. Set a conference scoring record, finished top 5 in High School tournament and NC Amateur. 3 wood I would never sell as it was in the bag for two course records as well.

    The irons were never worth anything to sell so the hung on strictly because they weren't worth selling. Of course now, I am kinda glad I kept them.


    I have my grandfathers entire set from when he passed away. I have all of the clubs, bag, and balls. I am building a display/storage thing for them.

    I tend to game my Scotty's for 8+ years, so I keep all of them. My Pro Platinum Newport 2 was in the bag from 2000-2008. Replaced by a Studio Select Newport 2 from 2008-20018. I'll never part with either of them.

    Clubs I kick myself for getting rid of: Adams Idea Pro hybrids. Gamed them for 8 years. Should have kept them forever.

    FT3 Tour 8.5 with x stiff Aldila green.

    use to bang that thing a mile with a little draw.

    can't hit it for toffee now and would probably only get 20 quid for it.

    Tom Morris (St. Andrews) stiff shafted one iron they made for me in 1962, when they still manufactured clubs. It was a wonderful stick I could hit from almost any lie, or from a tee and with which I was fortunate enough to win county and national championships. It is rather beyond me nowadays as my swing speed is greatly diminished, but once upon a time it was a "magic" club.

    Hogan Special SI BECU bent to 49. Was a hole in one club, also my everything short game club for at least 10 years.

    My grandfathers set of Tommy Armours from the 40s with the olive green shafts. Like someone above, I'm going to build a display case and put them up on the wall.

    I also for some reason keep my 3 woods, each of which lasts about 10 years.
