I have to come clean... to the GolfWRX Community...


Recommended Posts

Please, don't be too hard on me.

I'm shallow. I'm not the club ho I appear to be... all the irons over the past two years have been because I'm a shallow, shallow man.

These:

Are the clubs I can't get out of my bag. They are ugly. So ugly that everytime I pull a club I throw up just a little. I absolutely HATE (hate, hate, hate) the shape of the heads. The paint has not worn off, I think it has just evaporated due to old age. The stainless steel is actually rusting! I have no idea what the shaft is, but I'm quite sure they aren't something to brag about like a set of ultra cool KBS Tours or even nice Project X's. And if those are grooves, then I'm a monkey's uncle.

These came from Wal*Mart before the turn of the century (the last one, I think, but it could have been the turn before). They are a Ping knockoff, but unlike my putter, they knocked off an ugly Ping.

My Uncle played them before me. I got them when his mid-life crisis was over. I've had them in the bag for 8 years? Nine years? I put a set of blades into play for 1/2 a season when I started (because they looked better) but they were brutally unforgiving.

Let me apologize ahead of time, but sometimes strong language is called for: I hate these f-ers, and I hate the fact I can hit any damn shot I want with ease. Look at them. They should hit nothing but high lobs. They should have hot spots and be inconsistent distance wise. There shouldn't be a bit of spin on the ball due to serious lack of grooves - but I can make the ball stand up and bark like a dog with the 8, 9 and wedge.

No matter, I can call up a knockdown punch, I high soft landing, cuts are my specialty but I can even draw the ball with these.

Look at the insane amount of offset. Hell, the face is in a different zipcode than the shaft! These should be able to hit nothing but high hooky shots.

I shoot mid 70's with these. I have not been able to break 85 consistently with any other club. Only two sets even came close the versatility these ugly mother f-ers provide. Naturally, I didn't hang onto those either.

The only thing I do is make sure they have good grips on them:

I can't bring myself to put these in the WIB. They're embarrassing.

I want these butt-ugly, ancient, cheap a** copies out of my bag. Their ugliness is an ambarrassment to me, and club junkies everywhere.

I feel like I'm living a double life - Internet club junkie with good taste and real life ugly club master. Sort of like the guy with the model's picture in his wallet but the two bagger at home (you know, so ugly she has to have a bag on her head and you have one on yours in case hers breaks).

So there you go. I'm shallow and hate ugly. I have ugly sticks. I can't get rid of them, and I'm not really a club ho, just a desperate, shallow man who really wants snazzy clubs to show off, but no amount of cash (and beatings by the wife) have solved my problem.

The only fun these ever provided me was once, at Disney, some a** clown took a look at my bag and made some comment about my "high-tech Mizunos" and I kicked his a** all over the course. Sadly, the pleasure lasted only until the next round with these aesthetically retarded clubs.

Help me, please.

Sounds like a confessional...the only thing you forgot was:   "My name is HeadonaStick and I play ugly clubs..."   You know there is an easy solution to your problem...donate the clubs to someone who

1. I don't think a respectable re-finisher would let them in the door,   2. It would be a bit like giving a five dollar hooker a makeover.

Naturally.   Can you imagine if these slipped and hit someone in the melon? The embarrassment in court when they showed pictures of these...

You know there is an easy solution to your problem...donate the clubs to someone who needs them (like a First Tee program) and you won't ever have to look at them again. The new problem is that you'll miss your old scores causing you to scour the internet trying to find them again.

 

Good luck!

Lol................

 

 

By the way you know you are now offically kicked out of the HO club...LoL

 

 

ARE THOSE TOUR ISSUE...LoL

They do say Tour on them... does that mean they are Tour issue? It is even written in gold paint (or is that that gold inlay stuff they did in the middle ages?)

Get them refinished? Those pretty ladies need a make over...

 

A make-over only helps to illuminate the beauty that already exists...but you can't fix ugly which seems to be the problem here.

 

A refinish would be like putting a new dress on Rosie O'Donnell...it would probably just attract more of the wrong attention.

Grips look fresh.

Naturally.

THey look just like my first full set of irons - Mizuno Astron. Bought them over 20 years ago with my Saturday job wages working in the local prop shop. Great sticks, wish I still had them, although I can't promise I would use them still.

 

Long irons were awesome, butt ugly but so easy to hit! :miz:

 

Oh my gosh I remember the Astron. And, yes, they were UGLY! However they were apparently functional.

Well that hooker gives great service...

Maybe, but I wouldn't take her out in public.

I want to see the woods and putter....Let me guess Titliest Howitzer driver and Titliest Star ship woods, with a Spalding Cash-in-putt...?

 

I'm not going to discuss the driver - its a modern one, but it is in time out for betraying me again.

 

My putters are behaving themselves...

See, they're normal... it is just my irons that are petrifyingly ugly.

let's see some of that offset.

It looks like they had to actually deform the hosel to get that much offset...

Whats wrong with your srixons? Here

Umm... I sold them on Monday and shipped them on Tuesday. Impossible to hit anything but high, or super high shots with them.

 

I'm thinking about trying the i-701 Tours but I already know how that will turn out... another trip to the BST and a happy day for someone. Not me.

Bought a lefty set of the very same clubs (minus the six iron :() only a month ago. The iron set my ugly game deserves. Those nice Lamkin grips survive only on the three and four irons, condemning the previous owner in absentia.

 

Here's me, laying up just short of the fire station with the five iron.

You wouldn't happen to know in what year they came on the market? Finding info on these clubs is tough.

I can't find the exact year (Mizuno won't discuss these gems) but I know they were released between 83 & 86. I also know the trade-in value is 20 bones. Yeah.

HeadonaStick,

 

This is one of the best posts ever. Now that you've come "clean" you'll be able to sleep better at night! If you score with these "beauties" then display them proudly! Remember - it's not how (or with what) it's how many! Nice Mills btw.....

Maybe, but I'm still hoping that Cleveland or Srixon will come up with something I can hit. The TA7 and the 506 were really close to putting these out of the bag... maybe now that they are in cahoots...
