Golf Hoarder


Recommended Posts

I never really considered myself a hoarder, but recently my wife pointed out just how much space my 'necessary', but never used, golf equipment was taking up.  Guilty as charged. I find it rather difficult to give up some of my old 'treasures', but practicality tells me to do so.  Plus if I do sell off some of my old treasures, I can buy new treasures.  LOL

I want to see pics of those who hoard putters. @Double Mocha Man 
 

If I have old stuff, it’s because its for my kid when he’s older. Otherwise I give stuff away or sell it. I have enough for maybe 3 sets of clubs.

I don't keep a lot. The more expensive clubs I have sold when I upgrade. The rest of the clubs I have sitting around are random and I probably couldn't get 20.00 out of them. I just haven't taken the time to sell these. The only thing I have kept that is worth an okay amount are my Mizuno MP32s. I could sell those but I just like having them for some odd reason.

Have a small room (6x10) containing stuff I don't use and don't want to rid myself of. I was just in there this evening and I found....... Memories. My old trusty Tony Penna persimmon driver with an aluminum insert.This thing was cutting edge back then.  Acushnet First Flight The Instrument Irons, possibly my favorite set of irons I ever played, but they were used so much they are lacking grooves on the short irons. A couple sets of Wilson and MacGregor blades. A set of Wilson Goosenecks.What a mistake that purchase was. I loved the look, cant use offset irons. . . A set of Taylormade metalwoods from the late 70's. After a couple months the driver rattled when you hit it, the foam or weight inside came loose.    A Titleist Tour Balata 100 I took out of a trophy when my kid and I threw out 5 hole in one trophies to make room for more useless stuff. And yes, this was the ball used to make that ace all those years ago. There is also a myriad of other useless stuff in there, like a couple old LORAN-C units, but they aren't exactly golf related. I may hit a bad shot here and there but never needed LORAN to get back into play!

This thread got me thinking. Look what I found:

s-l400.jpg

2 Irons = 38.5"; 1/2" decrease on each club. Shafts: Steel, Regular Flex.

See how straight that leading edge is? They are very soft forgings, and kind of a precurser to a more forgiving design.  A powerful, boring ball flight, given the old school lofts. (like 50 degrees on the PW if I recall) I think I may have just sold myself.......

How to get rid of the stuff, that is the question I have. I don't feel like just throwing out my stuff but the thought of selling, packaging and shipping is not appealing. Plus I don't think my stuff is worth anything really. At last count I had 11 putters, 6 drivers, three sets of irons, and an untold number of wedges, chippers, hybrids, etc. Is there a place you can donate to?

The First Tee in your area may take them.

    • Golf Lesson 1-13-21 I successfully got through my previous lesson (mostly trail leg stuff) and was having some trouble coming OTT with a more restricted turn, shorter backswing, etc. FIRST: Add Flow Must add 2” of sway to hips at takeaway. (Going back to flow stuff now that my trail knee is behaving) NEXT: OVER THE TOP FIX (2 part drill) I must use my hands and arms to move the club from P4-P5ish.  The club moves down with a “arms only” feel The body does not crunch to move the club The forearms do not roll to help shallow  There is force applied by both hands. Hard to explain...It feels like the club remains in a laid off position from after P4 to just after P5 (Look at picture on right -club drops at that angle) 2ND PART OF DRILL From deeper position at P5-ish, I can pivot through easily. I must not “throw right hand” from P5. Post “up” with ribs and core This is more what will be success in full swings. Other pics were from drill
    • Perhaps it would work for some people. I was toying with it for a while. I was hitting the ball quite solidly, but at the cost of much lower clubhead speed.  I did end up with my hands slightly higher at address, but not the extreme of Moes single plane swing.
    • I might be having the same kind of issue. Usually do the swings in my garage and there hasn’t been much sun around here lately. I try to turn all the lights on in the garage, but get high variance in the numbers, and feel like the low light level has something to do with it. 10-15 mph difference swing to swing. One swing reads 100 and the next is 84. I don’t see the same variance on the high side though. It might be that I’m not pushing hard enough on some swings. I still take the readings as is, even though there’s usually one in there that skews the median to the lower end of the “typical” range. Sorry about your hand btw, you must have been swinging really hard!
    • How many penalty strokes is that for hitting the "sand" during the practice swing? As for the topic at hand, I am glad December 21 is in the rearview mirror!!!
    • @Vinsk gave you some sound advice.   The membership here is non-judgmental and very helpful. As to why your shots are pulling left check out this thread.  Ball Flight Laws
