So on Sun when we got back from our camp I went down to the basement to seek out some 2 blade broad heads to put on some old arrows that I am going to use for hunting this year. Shooting a Hill Ol Timer and old(but excellent cedar arrows). Now what does this all have to do with golf.
Well saw my old pro bag(cart bag) in the corner and of course it is full of clubs. Mostly wooden sticks. So didn't find the bh's due to my wife re-arranging stuff so go over and looked in the bag and at all the dicarded clubs. Some Clevelenad drivers and others. But low and behold I reach in and pull out this Ginty. It is in perfect condition. Small persimmon head, reg shaft and the grip is excellent. This thing has almost like a dropped face on it with a thick steel plate. I don't think it has ever been hit actually. So I says what the heck. Take out my Cleveland 7 wood and replace it with the Ginty. I like saying that, the Ginty!
Played Mon. and without a doubt this club from thick ruff is the ticket. Slight draw and about 180 yds but extremely easy to hit. Matter of fact I hit this club every chance I got and didn't duff one shot. It is very club head heavy but put a good smooth stroke on it and this thing just soars. The 7th hole on the west course in Churchville where I play is like 390 from the blues. Hit a not so good drive about 200 yds. sliced right into the deep ruff. Used the Ginty and put it right up on the front of the green. Just a nice high slight draw. Effortless almost. I duffed a drive on the 3rd hole and from a good 270 out from the deep ruff, put a good swing on it and had a perfect wedge to the green. Dead center of the fairway.
Now it has must have set in this bag well since I quit playing like in 99 or so. I might have bought this maybe in 96 or so but just never used it. Anyways what a perfect little club. I think it might be a Simmons or something like that. So there ya go. Longbows and old wooden clubs just kind of go together. thanks
