When I was doing fittings for Ping this past spring I had one customer come with his printout from Club Champion. He was an average golfer pushing 70 years old. The shafts they wanted to use, I never heard of before but each one for fw and driver were over $400. Again… I have never heard of the name. It goes with what Adam said about them using shafts not available from the mfg so you can’t get it through them instead.
Ended up fitting him into Ping stock offerings that worked very well for him. Happy customer!
I couldn’t afford to be a collector! I do have a Newport TEi3 that was given to me all beat up. I sent it to BOS and had it refinished back to original.
At the moment I was given a Mizuno M-100 putter with the rare Mizuno “M” stamp on the bottom. It belonged to a friend who passed away. He played very little and this putter is very rusted as is the head. I want to sell it. I started selling it on FB Marketplace but everyone was such a PITA about it🙄 I ended doing nothing for now. I was too busy to answer every stupid question that they didn’t want to look up. I had Scotty customer service answer a few questions and I think it pissed people off because it proves them unknowledgeable.
It does bother me a little but the advent of adjustable hosels has got me used to it. I use Tour Velvet grips to minimize it. Tour velvet is not a “busy” looking grip like a GP MCC either.
I was giving a lesson last night and the student just got a set of irons and had Golf Galaxy put midsize MCC grips on them. They are all over the place. It’s like Helen Keller did them. I noticed it right away, I didn’t say anything to the student about it because it didn’t affect anything and he was happy with the clubs.
You’re right, they aren’t.
But they have a lot more insight to the consensus of other Native Americans than the vast majority of us do…
Barely tangential here, but for anyone interested, if you Google the AZ Diamondback game from last Sunday, there was a spectacular Native American recognition ceremony. My buddy’s daughter, brother, and nephew were among the dancers featured. Very cool.
