Show Me Your "1" Iron

Recommended Posts

I was recently tinkering around in my garage thru my hoard of golf clubs and came across these Titleist 1-irons. Remember the days when you could buy a 1-iron to match your set? You just don't see or hear about golfers carrying a 1-iron in their bag anymore. Anyway, thought I would share these pictures and would like to see some 1-iron pictures from some of the other members of Golf WRX (Hogan, Wilson, Spalding, Cobra, etc., etc.).

My Macgregor Muirfield 2 iron is actually smaller. Muirfield, the original Baby Blades!!!

IMHO somewhat correct--- Most Muirfields are copies of the Famous VIPs but yes the Baby Blades look like any VIP or Muirfield at address

The only 1 and 2 irons I own, and this happens to be my favourite set of all times... Slazenger Crown Sterlings... my babies...

 

Believe it or not I actually have a set of Crown Sterlings courtesy of Old School Rocker (Randy) Those are the set he posted on here a few years back. Great hitting sticks!!! I have done a range session with them and played a round with them. Those Apollo stiff shafts are a little much for my ailing back these days. May find a donor set of graphite shafts and reshaft them. They do hit that good!!

'76 Wilson Staff (L 335), Ping 89/90 + no +, Mizuno MP29, Hogan White Cameo, 25th Jack SS1 x 2.

 

The MP29, Staff and Hogan have been lightly used while the Ping is always tempting me for an outing.

 

At an estate sale with tons of Wilson Staff/Dynapower sets I passed on an excellent set of original SS1s.

 

I've never been a big fan of any iron set prior to the '76 Staffs. Although Johnny Miller was the best iron player of his generation with irons from the previous generation.

OK, here's a pic or two. The first pic is the 1 iron I'm using with my TW276 set, with NV105 shafts. Had to lead tape the hell out of it, it was a light clubhead (the hosel was loaded with lead powder from factory, lovely).

 

The second one is a pic some folks here seem to expect me to share from time to time, LOL:

Very nice selection of 1-irons. Do you have the complete set of the Macgregor Nicklaus SS1 irons in the picture? I have seen those sets on E-bay in the past with a very high price tag ($2000 to $3000 a set with the display case).

a few Hogans

Pic of Hogan 1 iron he hit at Merion

You are obviously the go to guy for a 1-iron. How many 1-irons do you own? I was waiting on the Hogan fans to start showing their stuff and you did not disappoint. Those Macgregor Nicklaus VIP's are georgeous. Yours appear to be from the original '67 and '68 models. The one I posted has the diamonds on the face instead of the crowns and is a satin finish. I think it came from one of the reproduction sets made for the Japanese market.

Nice. I used to play a set of the Ram FX Pro-Set irons back in the ninety's. I still have a set of the FX Custom Nickel musclebacks out in the garage.

Have another dozen Hickory shafted 1, driving irons not shown, I have a flange backed Wilson Pilot I have in my hickory bag I use a lot

Yes, set 1800 of 2500 but no display case. I also have an additional putter and 1 iron. There was a super limited set of 150 and the woods in those sets have perfect u-shape grain and I have the driver & 3 wood from set 116 of 150p.
