Help me decide my classic sets


Recommended Posts

Craig-

 

Play with what works.

 

Hell no, by that logic I'd sell all my clubs...

 

Perhaps need reminding of an observation that you made some time ago. One that I found quite apropos to this entire classic club business. Found it worthy of saving in my pithy commentary file of notable quotes I run across in these environs:

 

"I don't really feel the need to own more than one set of sensible irons, although I seem to be able to justify any number of stupidly impractical sets."

 

LoL! I think I'm saying the same thing, more or less...

Hey Craig, whereabouts in the UK are you ?

 

There is a Persimmon Golf Society group on facebook FYI, and some UK persimmon/blade meets are in plan for 2019.

 

If I see you at one of those, I'll try and sell you about 300 clubs to give your collection a quick boost LOL I'll still have about 600 left ... that's how it goes with this hobby :)

Lightweight.... I have 15 sets of irons, and about 12 persimmon drivers 23 or so woods, and 30 or so putters, and thats just my vintage gear.... The real soloution here is to buy a larger house.

 

Or just make more efficient use of the available floor space ...

Thanks junkie, I am a member of that Facebook group. Love looking at all the old equipment everyone has. My ultimate goal is a complete set of late 50s early 60s equipment in good playable condition let's wait and see what 2019 brings! I'm in southern England btw Berkshire to be exact. How about you?

I'm thinking the PC'S can go abroad. Im happy with how they play and I know my distances (or I know the loft more to the point) with them. So I should be able to pick up and play them with relative ease. Other than that I'm all over the place with what I want.

 

The next thing is convincing the Mrs that I need all the new clubs I'm looking at ?

Hi all! As a late 20 something I had no experience of the true joy of golf until this year (despite playing weekly for over a decade)

 

What changed?

 

I brought Mr Hogans five fundamentals and have since fallen in love with classic persimmons and blades from yester-year

 

I have brought a set of Hogan PC irons 2-E (apex 4 shafts) and I have a generic set of macgregor tourney woods that I am unable to find any info on (or markings apart from the aforementioned)

 

I am now planning my second set (one has to go to Spain with my dad for my holiday clubs)

 

I'm currently torn between two sets of wilson dynapower irons and can't decided for myself which are better... please help me!

 

Attached are a picture of my Hogan's (along with my Gary player anvil putter and mismatched hogan 1 iron plus a picture of the two sets I'm torn between

 

Btw love browsing this forum this is such interesting stuff!!

You can’t go wrong with either set. My preference is for the buttonbacks. As a matter of fact carried a half set of them this morning. If that custom grind fits your game by all means...

      Please put any questions or comments here. 
       
      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
