GMA Royal Star 333 iron set. Golf clubs with diamonds only 333 sets made

5 posts in this topic

A few months back i happened to inherit an iron set. I wasn't able to find much information on them and thought they were something of no value originally. The clubs are numbered only 333 sets were made. After doing a little bit of research i found that the person i had inherited them from won them as a prize for a golf tournament while in the middle east.on a business trip. I haven't been too successful at finding much information on them other then they originally were valued at 10,500+ dollars. Each club is fitted with diamonds and small rubies on the club head. They are also engraved and numbered. The clubs have all matching club heads, velvet lined box and have never been used. Each club is mint still in the plastic wrapping on the grips and club heads. They definitely have a wild look to them nothing i have seen in the likes of golf. If anyone has any information or a lead to possibly sell these i would greatly appreciate it. I will post detailed pictures in a little bit when i get back home tonight of the clubs. Thanks everyone for your help.

Very cool @kkozyk88 .  I don't have any info to help you.  I would suggest trying to track down the maker.

Would anyone put them into play? Probably not.

Japan does tend to produce a lot of status symbol golf equipment and these seem to be right up there with the tackiest. I dare say you could also buy a set of platinum nut crackers encrusted with diamonds, but at the end of the day they still serve the same purpose.

As for their actual integrity as golf clubs? Well, there's an old saying: "you can't polish a turd, but you sure can sprinkle glitter on it"

Those are wild looking.  If I were you I'd be looking for a buyer ASAP.  I mean hell they're too ugly to even put on display, all due respect.

Try to find some Japanese golf forums, Muira forums, etc and nail down your market.  Then post some high quality pics.

    • The Most Common Swing Flaw
      I'm sure there will be arguments later but there is one piece of information I think a lot of golfers can benefit from. I hope to save some people from buying the online swing tip scams. The most common flaw I see in swings is rotating the forearms one way or the other. Most people don't realize you don't have to rotate your forearms or hands at all in the golf swing, in fact it's better if you don't. The arms can stay just as square as they are at address. The arms follow the rotation of the shoulders on the plane. The arms slightly trail the body on the through swing, creating some additional lag to hip lag, and then eventually they pass the body much later. The club face can stay as square as it was at impact the whole time, many PGA  pros do this. Hunter Mahan is a good example. The only movement the arms really have to make is an up and down one. There is a popular drill where students are told to pick the club straight up from address, hinge it, and rest it on their right shoulder (for righties), and then turn the shoulders 90 degrees and voila, the top of the backswing. To get to this position people will do all kinds of arm and hand contortions all over the place, which is fine. The only problem is, is on the way down, you don't want to be doing these things, and the law of physics states that every action has an equal and opposite reaction, so you will likely do going down what you did going up, just in reverse. All you really have to do is rotate your shoulders and let the arms stay connected as they were at address, after all this is why you've spent so much time working on the set up position! The swing is a moving and rotating set up position. Some people actually get to the top perfectly, but then insist on going way beyond parallel, ruining the glorious work! The problem here is, the more your arms lift past your shoulders, the more you have to wait for them to come down, for that huge 1mph arm swing speed boost.  You're of course thinking, why the heck do people do all these things? One reason people do this is because it feels natural, at least that's the reason experienced golfers do it. It feels more repeatable to them, and they like it, it feels good. Power to them. But there are plenty of golfers who do these things that aren't happy with their game, so why do they do it? They do these things because it feels like they can get maximum strength this way. Doing it the efficient way would cost them a lot of power, because their strongest and biggest muscles have not coordinated yet to hit a golf ball. When we do basic things like jumping and lifting, things we've done all our lives, we use the most efficient muscles and most supported ones. But when we have to hit a golf ball, those muscles don't know how to get involved, so we use the smaller, weaker, faster ones, to get the job done with some short term speed. The truth is, we can hit the ball a lot further using the right muscles, but many golfers believe they are hitting it better with whatever move they currently have. They aren't wrong, at the moment they can't hit it with the right muscles, because the right muscles aren't trained. But if they stopped what they are doing and started training the right muscles to support the swing, would they hit it better, faster farther? You bet your ball washer they would. So put down the club, put your arms across your chest like you learned at your very first golf clinic, dig into your hip sockets, and rotate those shoulders. Do away with the crazy arm motions and the bending and unbending at the waist. The 4some behind you will thank you for it.
    • Anybody play golf without keeping score on a regular basis?
      Certainly. Only keep a record of pars in my notebook - nothing else, consequently my index could be anywhere between 16 and 36. Aim is to par every hole on the course at some stage.
    • My Swing (coop6)
      The video you linked of Rory do you see how there is zero club face rotation after the ball?
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      thanks @ColinL great answer. Question: Are there any times where you can take an unplayable if you can't identify your ball, like if you can't get close enough to read the letters. I thought there were.
    • Ball likely in casual water but uncertain
      Casual water is an abnormal ground condition (AGC).   The idea behind getting free relief from it is that it is considered “abnormal” i.e. not a normal condition you are expected to play from.   In the same way,  an obstruction being by definition an artificial obect,  is not a natural feature of a golf course and so you get free relief from interference by one. in both cases, the relief is available even if you don’t find your ball which you would think reasonable if you knew perfectly well that your ball had gone into a large patch of casual water and disappeared from sight.   A tree, on the other hand is a natural feature of the course and you get no favours if you put your ball up against one or in it: you have to play the ball as it lies.  If it’s in the tree, you don’t have to retrieve it in order to deem it unplayable, but you do have to identify it as yours.
