Does anyone know what Model These Founders Club Forged blades are?

Recommended Posts

I like them and they have the lower muscle back but I'm getting older and going to midsize. They may be from UK but I've only seen one pic on Google image and it doesn't say the model

Ignore previous. I did not read full posting. (I thought the question was dealing with what kind of club it was. Peril of reading in car on smartphone (not while driving))

Founders Clubs have been around for years.

You probably will not see many players using them.

I recall a friend in Colorado used them, and that was back in 1998.

About Founders Club Golf:
Founded in 1991 by Gary Adams, Founders Club produces high performance metal drivers and fairway woods. The hallmark of Founders Club designs were precision “face progression”, perfect “bulge and roll”, and a “blind bore” hosel that together produce low spin rates, optimum launch angle and a penetrating ball flight for maximum distance. In 1996 Gary Adams sold his interest in the company to a Japanese sporting goods company, shortly thereafter departing from the company. A change in distribution strategy coupled with the emergence of Callaway as a market leader led to the closing of Founders Club in the late 1990's. In 2002 Paradise Golf Equipment and its management team bought Founders Club from Asics Corporation and re-launched Founders Club in 2003. The new Founders Club is holding true to the original pear shaped heads designed by Gary Adams, along with adhering to his concepts of producing clubs with low spin rates and optimum launch angles.

Thanks club rat

But I got these brand new in a long drive contest and can't find the model to sell them. Going to a midsize, these are great but a little harder to hit when you get a little older. So if they are that old I have a 2 year old set? First time to go to midsize I've been hitting blades since I was in Jr. High and haven't got to hit them yet, hurt my knee the day after I bought them. I bought some Callaway Fusions, I liked them when they came out but didn't want to spend almost a Grand and grab some barely used for a steal.

Hmm.... Not coming up with any creatures which look similar to your photo in my searches.

Are there "serial numbers" stamped on the other side of the hosel and is there anything on the sole which may identify the clubs?

Maybe check at Edwinwatts  or any golf discount store in your area.

I will give my buddy a ring who have been in the golf biz, see if he has a clue.

Good luck, Club Rat

Thanks and and tree aren't any serial numbers. They are as good of blade that compare s to some o f the best brads I've hit. I even sent a message to FC and didn't get a reply. They have DG S300 shafts and tour velvet grips with the F logo on the front. A lot of trouble for a fake. Good puzzle I guess.

    • Venturing out to the Marine Base today. Have not played there in some time. Hope to get a tee time around 10:30 as a walk on. Short notice, but anybody that can make it.... (also have to stop by the exchange...it seems that S.W.M.B.O.  has run out of Chanel Nr 5...this constitutes an emergency).
    • @Vinsk The only thing I can really do is describe what I have felt/done. I played my best lead arm dominant golf with the intent of the lead arm being soft and swinging like a pendulum very vertically.  So,  what I mean is what worked for me was to let's say just stand normally no club in hand and then swing the lead arm at about a 45 degree angle to the chest.  Left shoulder swing center. Relative to golf posture I would imagine a straight line on the ground maybe 35-40 degrees from the inside and swing my lead arm on that line feeling like the hands never got outside that line.  The feel I used was left arm feeling like it was swinging vertically like a pendulum but right on the imagined line of approach.  So the line of approach let's say ball is 12 o'clock target is at 9 the line would be around 4 o'clock. The trail arm in this method just added support but never dictated the clubhead motion.  This method worked well for me but I moved on to other things and can't really even make it workable anymore.  The crucial aspect was that the location of that vertical left arm pendulum created the body motion.  It was similar to the Malaska type deal a bit. So,  now it's very different.  Now the basis of my swing is like if you stood there with a piece of wood horizontal at waist height with a nail in it and a hammer in the trail hand and hammered the nail. So,  kinda like a bicep curl.  The lead arm is basically inert or soft.  The motion is controlled by the trail hand arc.  Feels like the swings center is more the right elbow to me.  My feel is that I try to hammer back through address.  I just try to remain still and make that motion. My body moves only a bit.  I never felt with either method when playing well that I was aggressively pivoting but that my body moves turns in accommodation of the master intention.   The downward hammer arc basically kicks the clubhead out at the bottom.  For me I stay in pretty decent shape with steady head doing this and the clubhead carries me into the finish.  If you have watched Malaska it's kinda like a right arm Malaska deal.  It's not complicated.   I don't shift weight bump hips squat or post up or try to spin the shoulders.  The swing gets me to my lead side every time without thinking about it.    For me this style is very very easy on my body.   Thats my ramblings on that for now,  @Vinsk.  You have a unique situation.  I do know that I can't play well without having one side or the other be the master.  Trail or lead.      
    • Yes, it's surprising that you can get a ball to stop or slow down with a partial swing or even a putting stroke. The ball you use likely makes a big difference in these cases.
