New Old Bag

Found these at an estate sale and couldn't say no. Just for grins I may start playing with a retro bag. I don't really play for score or in competitions so for pure fun I am going to give them a go. Going to see how christmas goes and may get a retro walking bag for them and some sunfish knit or leather headcovers to fit the look.

Also, now I need a correct putter to complete it. Either an old Acushnet or old Ping would be great.

That is a really nice set. I've been wanting to go retro too. I have a few persimmon drivers and fairway woods. Two Cleveland golf and some citation fairway woods. My blades are not as old as those. I got them new in 89, I think. Mizunos MP-7's. I do have a really old set of McGreagor MT's. Pretty cool. Would have to regrip any of those to actually play them. I think it would be tough. I feel so spoiled with technology. I used to really have to work on my game back when I was playing those clubs. Seems like I go weeks without even playing and do just fine. I want to try it though. Maybe we can get a retro foursome the next get together.

Somebody told me those irons were '87 vintage. Somewhere right in there. I had no real plan for them,and in fact have not even had a chance to hit them yet, but when i found them in the attic at the estate sale I had to have them. Looking back I should have purchased some other old woods so I could salvage the whipping off of them. I have a 3w that needs to be re-whipped and from my looking about the innerwebs the material is hard to come by.

I bought some new golf pride victory grips from Dicks for 2.99 per grip. I plan to use those. Golf Pride re-released by the victory greens and the victory cords and they can be found at different places.

I put the victory cord on my driver this year. Love it. I was going to do my irons but guy at golf galaxy talked me out of it. Said my grips were fine. Took one and cleaned it and showed me they just needed cleaning. Nice guy

I had a buddy that graduated in 85 and I thought he had those scotch blades then. Earned him a scholarship to ole miss.

Speaking of Retro I have a set of Pings 2 thru SW that were purchased new in 1979. Every once and a while I wishfully look at them and think I should take them out and play...But they really look hard to hit and I have become lazy ...lol
