  1. You're very welcome! I think it's pretty cool that you now have both a modern set and a vintage set of Hogan irons. It should be a lot of fun to compare the two generations. It's been a real pleasure to get to know you and I'm looking forward to getting out on the course next year to swing some vintage clubs. Regards, Brad
  2. We've been playing at Anetsberger golf course in Northbrook, Illinois. It's a nice little par 3 course operated by the Northbrook Park District. I believe that Bill is playing a Wilson Staff Duo Soft ball - he's a Wilson Man through and through! I'm kind of a Titleist Man myself. I have a number of balata balls stashed away, but have had great results from playing ProV1's. Keep in mind that we're playing a par 3 so we're not using any woods. If we were playing holes long enough to warrant a wood, I'd have one of those vintage Titleist balatas on a tee in a heart beat. Can't beat the fee
  3. Thanks for the warm welcome all! It's great to hear from so many of you that either live not too far from me or have ties to Wisconsin. I'd like to think that everyone has a little bit of Wisconsin in them I've been playing recently with a fellow I met through The Persimmon Golf Society facebook group. He and I both play vintage clubs on a nice par 3 course he introduced me to and we have a ball. We're interested finding more folks interested in playing vintage clubs in our area, southeast Wisconsin - northeast Illinois, in order to gauge the interest in have a few vintage club golf o
  4. The Jack Dempsey clubs do share a lot of the features of the Jack Burke wedge - thanks for the information! I'm new to vintage clubs and am enjoying the process of learning. Brad
  5. Hi All, I made a 6 hour round trip run from Wisconsin to Michigan this Saturday to buy some interesting MacGregor irons listed on FB Marketplace and would like to share them with you. I’m new to collecting and would appreciate your thoughts on just what I have here. I think they possibly could be custom made clubs for Jack Dempsey, the boxer. I’ve seen newspaper articles from the 1920’s and later that indicated he enjoyed golfing. The shafts are MacGregor LO FLEX ACTION. The clubs look like they were well used, but cared for. The wear on the club faces looks pretty consistent, p

  7. Hi All I am new to the forum. I’m 54 and began golfing in the mid to late 1970’s. My first set of clubs was a Northwestern Junior set that included the typical 3-5-7-9 1W-3W & putter. My second set of clubs was a well-used, but well cared for set of Sam Snead Blue Ridge irons and woods from 1962. They were hand-me-downs from my grandfather, a career Air Force Master Sergeant, who bought them at the PX when he was stationed in Hawaii. I golfed in high school and purchased my first set of new clubs when I made the team. It was a set of Lynx Predator Plus low profile irons and metal
