Old persimmon fairway wood

11 posts in this topic

I have an old fairway 7 wood that belonged to my dad and have been unable to find out any information about the club.  It has V.I.D. stamped on the bottom plate and in the wood on the side.  It has a steel shaft and the original label on the shaft says it is a light weight.

Would appreciate any help in letting me know anything about this club.

Thanks,

cj

Thanks for clearing that up.  Thought my Dad had bought better clubs for that time period - guess I was wrong!!  I'll keep it anyway as a remembrance.

Nothing wrong with laminate. The old Ping woods were laminate.

It are at least 40-70 years old.  Do not know when he bought it, and it may be older than that.  I know I remember seeing it in his bag 40=45 years ago, but it was bought how long before that - your guess is as good as mine.  I can tell you he lived all of his life in Baltimore, MD and he probably bought the club there if that helps.

I had the same trouble with my father-in-law woods.  They were from the 1930s.  I could not find the manufacturer anywhere.  It may have been a local maker.

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
