And you thought you had too many old golf clubs in the garage?

Thinking maybe you had a hoarder streak after keeping a few too many old clubs laying around the garage? Think again!

Placed in the Orange County section of Craigslist and updated since, the seller lists just about every conceivable brand as available from the, uh, collection. There is a catch: the buyer must take it all. That's 20,000 clubs for $7,500, which, as the seller notes, amounts to 38 cents a club. The 50 bags mentioned are thrown in as part of the package based on the seller remarks.

The reader who tipped us off to this sale had a friend stop in for a visit and reported that this club collector "had irons everywhere at two houses, two garages, inside a truck (with flat tires) and in a shed out back too. Very remarkable in all my years of collecting."

My wife would kill me if that were my garage...but hoarding is a serious disorder. Ever watch that show Hoarders ? It's ruined some people's lives.

Sounds like a good deal. Would be interesting if a First Tee or some group could snag them.

Hey, how'd you get a picture of my garage?

He should keep a long putter outside just to open that garage door with.

Well after seeing that garage I feel much better now. We have a home, that we lease out since we now do the full time RVing thing. When we cleaned the place out, and put stuff in storage was when I found out just how much golf stuff I had accumulated over the years.

I let my oldest Grandson sell most it on EBAY, with the agreement we split 70% for him and 30% for me since he would do all the work. After 6 months of selling golf stuff he gave me $5K in cash for my part. With his part he bought he a Vanagon, and hit the road with a girl friend to see America before heading off to college.

That ad has been on CL for the last 9 months that I know of. I have serious doubts that anyone would buy them, but ..hey, you never know..

That was my first thought too.

    • My Swing (smripley)
      I've been Playing Golf for:   I have been playing golf recreationally for about 5 years.  However, over the past 9 months I have very much been trying to understand the proper technique and have taken a few lessons.  I have gone from over 105 to consistently in the low / mid 90s, but I can't break-threw any lower it seems at this point due to the inconsistency in putting the ball off the tee and hitting decent approach shots when it is in play.  My ultimate goal is to  a close / sub 10 handicap.  I feel I am a solid ball striker, but I am just not able to stay consistent for multiple rounds.  
      My current handicap index or average score is: Handicap 19
      My typical ball flight is: When struck well, draw right to left.
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: Inconsistency.  Off the tee with the driver I am highly inconsistent and not comfortable.   Hello, thank you for viewing my swing. As I start to understand the issues with my swing, I realize I have the following issues: Unbalanced. Weight being distributed past my right foot. Swaying to much away from the target on backswing. Slightly shut clubface at top. May be coming up on the ball near impact as opposed to driving through the ball. Any tips you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

    • Free towel while you play at a public course?
      I'm curious at how many courses TST Community have played that give out free towels when they play?

      My course gives out free towels for use on the course, but sometimes they are all used up.  We trade them for clean ones every Thursday, so if it rains a lot, we may not have towels to give.  I have seen people get really pissed when we run out.  I mean, they didn't come to golf here just for a free towel right? I mean it's a nice perk when available, but I don't think they should expect it every time.  You should come to a course prepared, especially if rain is in the forecast. 

      I have only seen my course give out towels, though.
    • US Navy's experimental railgun [WSJ]
      It's scary what this weapon is capable of, but have read about these things in science fiction novels, don't really keep up w/military technology to know this is was actually a real thing. The way it's fired is pretty interesting nonetheless, that's some massive electric power required. http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-first-look-at-americas-supergun-1464359194
    • Standing on Tee Marker for Aiding a Swing
      You're voluntarily placing the ball in such a position near an immovable obstruction that the stance is already built for you: the intent is exactly the same. If your ball comes to rest near an immovable obstruction, you may play the ball as it lies, but you are also entitled to full relief from the obstruction. The one thing you're not allowed to do is drop the ball so that the obstruction is still interfering with your swing, but in a more advantageous way than it was originally. The only difference here is that off the tee, playing the ball as it lies isn't an option. Whether or not there is a specific rule for this scenario, there are multiple grounds to conclude that it is in violation of the rules of golf, and warrants a two-stroke penalty. Unless you're positive that standing on the tee marker is the only way you can avoid losing your tee ball, it's not worth it.
