  1. Last Sunday my golf partner, who I have not seen for at least one year, showed up at the course sporting TM Burner drivers. His was from 2018, like a turtle on a stick. Mine was of the bubble shaft variety, unsure of the age. At least 20 yrs old? As an aside, he paid $20 for his. I paid $2. I out drove him a couple of times & he out drove me a couple of times. I hit mine about the same as I hit my persimmon 2 wood, so.... Anyway, I shot a 42. He shot a 41. Par is 32. We had fun. My first round of the year. Used my mildly vintage minimalist set. Today I got the "real" vi
  2. Nice video! Good to see you out there with your son. I think your strategy was the perfect way to play that hole. How close would you have to be to hit a wedge in there? Considering your earlier issue with vintage wedges, that makes 2 risk variables to consider. I'd be interested to see how far the trees are from the forward tees. I'd most likely hit 2w from the tee down the left side, since my miss is right as you know. But hey, you hit the green in regulation and 2 putted for par. Nice hole. I'm sure there are better birdie opportunities for you on that course. Good course management!
  3. If health is an upcoming issue, then I'd pick what I can hit with the least amount of pain. That would be my modern 8 club bag with senior graphite shafts & Ping SW and Putter.
  4. Hey Baloo, sorry to hear about your round but good on you for making the effort. Hope the family is doing well!
  5. Found this today at GW for $1.49. Hits pretty good. Anyone know what decade these are from?
  6. Nice! Are you planning on playing it?
  7. Just finished my 2nd sunrise round. Shot 5 strokes better than the previous day. No 3 putts! Horray! Swaped the 4w for a 3w, and the 9i for the 8i. PW was a NW Thunderstick, which is surprisingly good out of the sand. Callaway Warbird yellow ball. Started using a tee as a ball marker, laid down pointing at the line. Cleaned the ball, and use the writing to make the final adjustment. Set up to the writing on the ball, then just think speed and feel. Putting improved. Next time out I'm swaping the 5i for the 4w, and the Citation 3w for a MacGregor 3w. 9i going back in too, an old Louisville 9 wi
  8. Well, if that's the case, then I'm right there.
  9. Finally got my first sunrise nine in today. Had a line-up change as I called a Ram Gene Littler PW and a Ping Kushin putter off the bench. Bagged a 2W, 4W, 5,7,9i as well. Played a Callaway Warbird yellow ball. The sun only appeared briefly as rain clouds moved in. Temp was about 70 with hardly any breeze. Met a doe on the path between 1 & 2, and she let me get within 25 feet b4 she scampered away. Scored 1 better than my last nine there with the modern bag, so I was pleased. I walked carrying a Ping L8+ bag. The new range finder worked swell. Never saw a soul except two grounds keepers on
  10. I used to game an 11 & 15 wood. Both were very handy. But since then I have gotten much better with my irons so i no longer have them. The hybrid set I have probably functions the same tho.
  11. Nice set. I have that same smart persimmon driver sitting in my 7 club modern set. How do you like it?
  12. Yeah, the PW and Putter don't have any lead tape, only 'cause I ran out... That's a hickory shafted putter I just refinished btw. Rain here this afternoon, so I'm shooting for a sunrise round.
  13. Anyone care to post their vintage WITB pics that they are using this summer?
