No, it's not retro, but the guys who play persimmon heads and hickory shafts are the guys who most likely will be drawn to this approach. 4. Yes, it's just a different way to play. Not better. Different. 5. Most find it "eccentric" at best. Take my posts and yours out of the thread, and it's apparent most don't even find it interesting enough to talk about. But, like I've said a few times in here already, if you enjoy it, go for it. It's a game, as long as you're having fun, great. Just don't expevt many to see any merit to the idea.
Sorry, I meant the above comments as a reply to post #18.
I tried to compile the cheapest bag of newish(post 2013), and my scores haven't changed. Here are my clubs:
1. PUtter- Only pre-2015 club. I traded in my Odyssey versa 9 and now use a Head putter from the 90's. Found it at the bin at the driving range. Cost 0. Putting hasn't changed. Still a 8-10 handicap putter.
2,3- Wedges- Bridgestone j15 52,58. 2015 club. Each wedge was 22.99 on GLobal golf.
4. Titleist ap1 716 Pitching wedge. Cost 19.99 ebay

6. Adams super DHY 21 (2014). Global golf 22.99
7. Callaway xr hybrid 19 (2015). Has a small dent on top. 25 dollars on ebay
8. Callaway 815 3 wood(2015). Some wear on it. Global golf for 46 dollars
9. Driver- Bridgestone j715 driver(2015). Got it for 50 dollars on ebay.
Doesn’t look like anyone is going to run away with it. Tigers wins have almost always been on courses where the scoring was difficult. If he can post -6, he might have a chance at a playoff or even the win.
