  1. 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
  2. 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, placement and amount of. No significant scars on the soles. The grips appear to have been kept clean and are in good shape. I think they will soften up nicely with some leather conditioner. The clubs were in Holland, Michigan (SW-Michigan). I believe that the previous owner got them at a yard or garage sale. He's a really nice guy and said that he will reach out to the person that he bought them from to see what he can find out about the missing #3 & #7 irons. I offered a finders fees to him if he can locate the missing clubs. That offer extends to you all here too. I’d love to hear some opinions from the MacGregor experts out there – thanks! Regards, Brad

  4. 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. Regards, Brad
