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.

    • n=1 with the SM bag. I carried today, and took 12 clubs. The SM bag is much lighter than the Ping Hoofer. It was so light that I feel like I could add my 4-iron and LW in the bag and still not be bothered by the load. However, the fabric/materials also appear thinner/lighter weight. Not that this means it is less durable, but maybe it could be. The Hoofer fabric feels like it could survive a cataclysmic event. The SM bag straps are a little wider and less thick than the Hoofer, but equally comfortable. The pad that rests on your back on the SM is thinner and not quite as comfortable as the Hoofer, which is padded by the rain hood in the pocket behind the pad. But the lightness of the SM bag meant it was not any less comfortable. The SM bag hung a bit more horizontal than the Hoofer, which gave me the uneasy feeling that a club might fall out (none did), so I need to adjust the straps to get this right. Not really a problem. The pocket design and configuration on the Hoofer is better, at least to my preference. I missed the easily accessible magnetic pocket on the Hoofer (where I kept my range finder out of its case). I used a carabiner to clip the rangefinder case onto the bag. It makes getting the rangefinder out and putting away take a little more time, but just something to get used to. The leg unfolding/folding mechanism works great. Overall, pretty pleased with the SM, although like I said, only n=1.
    • I just explained what happened and asked for any tips on removing/installing so I don't deform another grip. Never had this happen to such a large extent (sometimes there is a tiny bit of stretching on the lower part of the grip, but never the top part) on any other Pure grip, so I'm hesitant to try another adjustment without changing my technique. So I'm hoping they'll say what happened was unusual, or I used too much pressure, or to hold the grip in a certain way to prevent that, or something like that.
    • Im stuck between 2 clubs and cant find a comparison. 
    • I have a membership to TheGrint.    They have a place for rounds attested.   Since the guys I golf with aren't members and I will not ask them to verify a round via an email, I have 0% attested.   If I play a solo round I count it as a practice round.    My handicap although official shouldn't be any different than a solo round.   I can't prove it wasn't solo other than my integrity.    If my integrity is good enough for 0% attested rounds, it should be good enough for a solo round.
