Oldest Club that you GAME


Recommended Posts

I've never been one to be on the cutting edge with equipment, I have played blade Irons for most of my life, Didn't put Graphite in my driver until the Taylor Made R7 came out.... So I'm curious what's the oldest club that is in your bag on a regular basis. Post Photos if you'd like. I am currently experimenting with an Cobra Greg norman (U-Model) putter which would easily by the oldest but since it's not in my bag on a regular basis yet it doesn't really could.

 

Right now the oldest club in my bag is my Cleveland 797 BeNi 60 degree wedge. If I remember correctly these were late 90's wedges. I was able to find a collection of Cleveland wedges a while back that had never been used, some with plastic still on the grips and I quickly bought them from the person. Included in the lot were 2 Cleveland Byron Nelson Anniversary wedges that were BeCu which are more likely to see the inside of a case than a blade of grass. Wedges are those clubs that are timeless IMO. I spin the ball a lot with my wedges so todays groove technology does me a disservice a lot of the time. Looking forward to hearing about other peoples classic sticks...

Odyssey Dual Force 56 degree wedge which is about 20 years old. These wedges have what I believe are called Stronomic inserts in the face. The inserts are made of a very hard material and still look new. I have not found a wedge that gives more spin and control than these wedges. Ping Eye and ISI’s come close but the Dual Forces can almost stop on a dime. I also have a 52 degree that I will use together with the 56 on shorter courses.

Tour 13° V Steel

 

Those were very popular, despite how old they are they still can fetch an alright price on Ebay which goes to show how timeless that club is... good one!!!

 

I hear you. Mine has a Speeder 757 X and a TaylorMade TP wrap on the shaft where it would ordinarily be on a TP shaft, near the grip. Whoever did it wanted everyone that was looking at it from the front to think it was a TP wood. Kinda neat.

I have several older sets from the 1930-1950 era which I use for fun but my main competition bag has the newest clubs, and most of those are not exactly new. Mizuno TP9 3-PW (thirty years old) Wilson X31 SW (thirty five years old) and Mizuno TP15 fairway woods (thirty years old). When it's windy I sometimes swap the 5W for a Ping Eye 2 1 iron which is of similar vintage. Putters get switched about but the main one is a George Nicoll White Heather I bought new in 1990. The only 'new' club is a driver that comes out on longer courses - a Taylor Made R15. On my home course (<6000 yards) I usually play a no-name persimmon driver, age unknown but suspect 1970s or 1980s.

The old Cleveland wedges had model numbers that reflected their initial release date, possibly design or build date. Anyway, the 797 would have referenced July 1997. The ageless 588 goes back to May 1988 and my favorite, the 691, reflects a June 1991 date. My current oldest club in the bag is a White Hot Odyssey #6.

 

Thanks for that bit of into on the numbers and dates, I didn't know that... we learn something every day!!!! :superman:

 

Taylormade R9 3-wood. I keep trying to find something to replace it... but it's hard to fix what isn't broken.

 

no shame in that, I still have a R7 TP 3-wood that goes in the bag from time to time!
