Jimmy Demaret Limited Woods & Irons


Recommended Posts

Picked these up the other day. 1st set I've ever had. 1,3 5 persimmon woods & 2-9,PW forged irons. Appear to have never been hit. Only markings on the clubs are the ones pictured. There is no manufacturer name on the clubs. The soleplates remind me a little of Palmer woods. The number 66 or 99 is stamped on the hosels of the irons. The shaft bands are gold and only have the same info as the back of the irons along with an "S" for stiff flex. Grips are all Golf Pride Victory in the normal black with green fill. Anybody have a set of these? Any info would be appreciated.

Those look sweet. I agree they have the look and shape of some Palmer Standard irons with Arnie's signature on the back. Also, the woods look similar in shape to the Palmer Peerless models although the sole plate is shaped a bit differently. But the shape, color and insert are all spot on.

Dave Wood probably has more than common knowledge about this contract work, since it was clear from our conversations Dave acquired much from "Mr. Demaret"

 

It appears these Limited Edition Jimmy Demaret signature Persimmon woods and Forged irons were a Special Contract won by ProGroup/Palmer, and not MacGregor Golf.

 

The resemblance to "The Standard" model iron, the "Limited" stamp and Signature on the soleplate, along with the position of the Jimmy Demaret signature and 1910-1983 stamps, crisscross knurling and pinned hosels, are the giveaways here.

 

Note- According to Dave Wood, Jimmy Demaret was instrumental in developing the Oil Hardening process for persimmon woods with Will Sime in the 1930s for MacGregor.

 

In some ways it's surprising MacGregor didn't get the contract.

 

Wonder if Charley Penna would share his insights.

 

After all, Demaret did win "The LONG DRIVE Contest".

Beautiful. All I can tell you is these were made after 1983 :)

 

The shape looks absolutely amazing.
