  1. When I lived in Kingwood , Texas and played at Kingwood Country Club (where they filmed Tin Cup) I had next door neighbors named Jack and Mary Nay. The Shell building had just been built and he was transferred there from his previous assignment. He was Shells official liaison guy for Shells Wonderful World Of Golf.
  2. I like a book by Spiro Agnew titled “I Can Play Better Golf Than This But I Never Have” You have be as old as I am to appreciate the humor in this post.
  3. Please smile when youmalign Spalding! The real Spalding was far from junk. Scroll back see my 53 TopFlites!
  4. I also noticed yesterday that when googling up a review that information would come up about gwrx forum but when you clicked on it it came up as not available. Wonder if they cut off all the history of days gone bye?
  5. Where did the thrift shop thread go? On the hickory, persimmon page where did the new acquisitions thread go?
  6. PGA owned the rights to name. I’d clean them up and play them.
  7. And that makes them terrible clubs. BTW you never said what woods you play. I bought my first set of KI woods in 1973. They looked just as funny to others as the irons did. Always liked and still have several assorted K series , E series and Zing. Might just be that I was never a good enough player to find out how terrible they are. I looked at the Facebook page and will join. It’s overwhelming how much stuff theses guys have.
  8. Hi AG! Good to see you on here. Yes they are beautiful. Like I said, makes me a l little sick they couldn’t have been Apex II or something I might use. But they’re going to eBay and I hope the go to a Dad with a young daughter that appreciates them. Yep I remember the AMF days. It’s also Texans favorite goodbye.? when the virus goes away, I’ll try to get down and play your course. Looks like we may be going back to Texas next year , Austin area. Take care.
  9. That’s news to a helluva lot of Ping wood players! Btw what do you play?
  10. This find makes me a little nauseous to find a mint set of Hogan’s.........for a young girl. These are as new as the get. To determine the age , look at the grips.
  11. Having been in the flooring business for over thirty five years dealing in hardwood flooring, carbon spots, knots streaks etc are not considered defects but just characteristics of wood. Feeling and opinion has always been ,if you don’t like the beauty of the characteristics maybe you shouldn’t have a wood floor, table a r anything made with fine wood. I’ve never liked painted woods but the factory can’t throw them away so they paint them and please those that don’t like the grain or whatever in the stain or natural woods. The thing I think most of wood clubs now is how many we ruined carry
  12. Can’t believe they ar eRegular shafts. The two clubs I washed look they’ve only been hit very little. Need polishing . Green victory grips look new.
  13. Just found these this morning . Not even cleaned up yet.
  14. What’s wrong with playing 73 irons all your life.? l
  15. Ironfinder says they are 69-70. Very nice set. I can’t make up my mind to play them or sell the ones I have.
  16. Doug Sanders hosted a celebrity tournament in Houston. Had a lot of famous people there. I was in the pro shop/clubs house when a thunderstorm hit and they all congregated there. Met a bunch of them, Fred Mc Murray, Jimmy Dean, Alan Hale , Lesley neilson, Robert Stack , Gene Barry, . Just a few I remember but all very cordial. Doug Sanders was the peacock of the tour with totally coordinated clothes. Shoes and gloves dyed to match slacks, sweaters, shirts. He loved the ladies and they loved him They said his swing was so short he could swing in a phone booth. Tour was totally different the
  17. What have you done to the old 53 top flites? Shafts, grips, loft , lie etc?
  18. it saddens me that is seems like there’s not many of us here that remembers golf from the fifties and sixties.
  19. The game is still how many not how far. Play the persimmons if YOU feel better with them. IMHO.
