Do you still use a Cleek?

3 posts in this topic

I have a favorite old club...a 24 degree Cleek...andcarried it in my bag for a long time until I got a similarly lofted hybrid.  That old cleek is a Taylormade Metalwood from the 80's.

Recently one of my golfing buddies gave me a 15 degree Cleek...same brand, same design, that he'd bought it at a garage sale for $3 dollars.  So I put a new grip on the $3 dollar cleek and hit some balls with it.  What a sweet hitting club.  Kinda like the old TM Metalwood Fairway 3 but with the turf ridges on the bottom and not quite as big a clubhead.  Since I don't carry a 2 iron, I am tempted to put it in my bag for a few rounds and maybe leave my 3 wood at home.

Cleek...I just love that word!     Almost as much as Mashie.

Modern golf seems to have gotten away from some of the traditions that made it such a glorious game to begin with.

Voman I know this reply is quite late but I just saw your post and had to comment. I also found my Cleek (19 degree) at a thrift store for a couple of bucks. Bought it on a whim and it has kicked my Callaway Diablo 5 wood and Nickent 21 degree hybrid out of the bag. I don't know what it is about this club but it has become my "go to" club from long range. Incredibly consistent with a boring trajectory. Works terrific out of sand and much better out big the rough than any of the several. modern hybrids that live in my garage now. I only use my 16 degree 3 wood off the tee or perfect fairway lies as the Cleek hits almost as long. Great club!

Sounds similar to my Taylor Raylor from about 1990. Small head, 16*, turf ridges on the bottom. Looks like the fairway heads from the period, but a little smaller. I would probably be better off score wise if I only carried this one wood and left the driver at home.
