Recommended Posts

Lets hear all your golf fads.

 

Anyone had NBR pants? :wave:

 

Those crappy pull carts with the steel wheel with the grey rubber.

 

Colored golf balls. :cheesy:

 

That stupid ball sleeve thingy at the first tee so you know which group is on deck. :)

 

Balata balls.

 

1 irons.

 

Single strapped leather carry bags with one pocket.

 

Remember when you were allowed metal spikes?

 

 

 

Anyone got more?

ironically enough some of the stuff mentioned a few posts above is coming back thanks to mr. j. lindeberg. multicolor striped golf pants (check) hes got em on his website, big collared shirts (check) he makes some.

 

the cotton/wool long stocking headcovers, still around especially with the popularity of jan craig and rocket tour now.

The reverse "C" - not really a fad but no longer around.

 

All white shoes (although they appear to be coming back).

 

The Amana structured hat - or any structured had for that matter.

I have to use the reverse "C" finish to keep my pants from falling down on the follow thru. :idhitit:

I miss seeing the ball smile up at me after I thin a 5 iron.

 

 

I was just telling a friend who just started how on the old balls if you hit a thin shot it wasn't unusual to see the cover peeled up and some rubber bands sticking out. :idhitit: I remember as a kid rubbing the skins on the sidewalk to rub the cover off and have a pile of rubber bands with the little black center core at the end.

 

 

I miss the fuzzy Ping wood covers.

White shoes have been back for the past 2 years. Everyone wears white shoes now.

 

 

Also, colored golf balls are coming back (well a lot of companies are making those crystal balls)

My buddies and i all turned our headcover's inside out for high school and college golf. It worked great with old Callaway or Titleist, Like the biggest big bertha or 975D, and J. The inside of the covers had crazy stipes on them with different colors of thread. The Callaway's all looked similar, but the titleist looked compelety different. Some pink and white, others were blue and yellow. We thought it was cool! Try it if you have one of these old headcovers.
