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/wood woods. Between the low profile irons and the unique looking woods I dare say I had the most interesting (looking) bag of clubs on my golf team. What I really wanted was a set of Ping Eye 2’s, but I was limited to using my own money and the Pings just weren’t within my reach. I chose the Lynx because I played a decent round with a demo set and Service Merchandise (large catalog store long since gone) had them discounted such that I could buy a 2-PW set of irons and 1W, 3W & 5W set of woods, bag, head covers, and two dozen Titleist Tour Balata 90’s and still have money left over – decision made. I grew to love that set of clubs and I still have them.
I collect vintage golf clubs and I enjoy playing vintage clubs; in fact vintage clubs are pretty much all I play anymore. I live in southeast Wisconsin so golf is not a year round activity for me. Winter, you know… I look forward to sharing some of the vintage clubs in my small collection that may be of interest to the folks on here that like that sort of thing.
