Rounds with a Vintage Bag

Thanks Stu. I'm glad I could help. You've done the same for me over the years, so I'm happy I could send some good vibes back down South. Sorry to hear about your injuries, but also happy to hear you are on the mend and have found some of your old school mojo again. 

 

I think you make a great point about what modern equipment can do to golfers like us. Golfers who learned to swing the club smoothly with the demanding equipment. I think we count on rhythm and tempo to compensate for some possible homemade idiosyncrasies. I always have the best of intentions (with the new clubs) to swing like I'm using the old stuff, but I always end up going in the wrong direction. I lose trust in my swing and start working on things. It's almost like I can't help but try to be a hitter with them. I know it's me, and its not the equipment, but it is a funny thing. 

 

I'm sure you'll be back in the dogfights in no time, and maybe you'll even pop a skin or two using the old kit. If you do, please recount it in this thread for our enjoyment. 

When I go back to the Dog Fights I will have my MacHogan VIPs in the bag. Right now I am hitting the FCs because they are heavier and will build my muscles back up but truthfully I hit both sets just as good. And I will have to play my metal woods for firepower. But if I can hit the persimmon in the screws then the Toyota on a stick is a no brainer. Now I have told them if they let me play off the super senior tees I will play persimmon. LOL they will not stand for that because before I was hurt I shot some near par rounds with the persimmon and blades.

The weather's been so good here, I was desperate to get out and play, so I took out the persimmons for nine holes in the evening. I haven't played persimmon in about three months as I've been struggli

I can second this emotion. I don't even want to admit how long I'll sometimes stand in front of my persimmon collection trying to figure out which clubs to take for the round. I have to start making d

Took possession of these Macs yesterday. Did some cleaning up and paintfill and took them out for 18 today. Very sweet set. Keepers. 👍🏻

Aurora is close to me.  I've been golfing with someone I met on the Persimmon Society on a weekly basis.  He's across the border in WI and I'm in Northbrook.  All retro/vintage for us and we'd love to golf with some new golfers or even do a vintage outing with a small group.  Hit me up if you want to golf next year.

I am on PGS too and from what I see there are quite a few Vintage golfers up your way.

I think our esteemed Classic friend Big Arch is up your way in Aurora Ill.

That's great. Thanks Stu. It sounds like we'll be able to round out a strong group when the warm weather returns. Unfortunately now, up here, my persimmons will be relegated to their place next to my bar cart, only to be waggled before I pour another glass of whisky.

I'm about as far away from Aurora as you can get and still be in the state of Illinois.  I am down in the southern tip...south of Louisville Ky in terms of latitude.  The yankees up around Aurora all head down this way on the weekends to play as its usually a minimum of 10 degrees warmer down here this time of year.  🙂

I'm not far from you guys either, just down in Lemont. I play most of my rounds with classic equipment anymore and it's always fun playing with others who enjoy it as well. I'll keep an eye out if anything springs up next year, I'd love to play as well. Heck, if we get enough turnout it might even be fun to have a little parking lot buy/sell/trade for some persimmons after the round.

The course I'm looking at unfortunately doesn't have a decent hole to hit woods.  So I have to rethink that.  But part of the draw there was they have an outdoor gazebo with grills that I thought we could do a buy/swap, dinner, beers, and maybe a mock scoreboard for kicks.

I'm in the Chicago area too, up in Wauconda. I came back to persimmon in 2013, and I've stuck with vintage clubs ever since. Count me in!

You got it!

I've been wanting to get down that way for some golf again as well. Moreso in southern Indiana than Illinois though. I played the Ross course at French Lick probably 10 years ago and I've been meaning to get back to play the Dye course. Ideally, I'd like to play both courses at French Lick and then extend it south a bit to play Sweetens Cove and Sewanee in Tennessee.
