  1. Yup, an old 1961 I believe, Macgregor Tourney I found for $2. I used that for the demo just because it was sitting there in the pile with its whipping already removed. I guess I should have used a lighter colored head as it would have been easier to see the whipping. I’m just happy most of the pictures are in focus as I had my 8 year old take the pics when I didn’t have a free hand. [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Thanks Plaid. The whipping is nylon, almost like monofilament fishing line. I believe most companies began using this type of whipping post-WWll as clubmaking came into a more modern age. Prior to steel shafts, hickory shafted clubs used a linen whipping which was also used in the early days of steel shaft clubs too. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Thanks for the kind words guys. I’m just trying to pass on any little bit of knowledge I have that can help keep these old clubs on the course where they belong. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Really committed to those clubs with the initials, huh? [emoji16] I’m sure you’ll love that bag for awhile. Great clubs there! [emoji106] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. A fellow spy contacted me asking about the whipping of a friends 5-wood that came undone. He wondered if this is something most golf repair men still fix or if it’s something he could do on his own. I told him most old timers can probably do it, but it’s also something he could do himself, he just needed a little instruction and a few supplies. Now, this diy is to show you how to re-wrap whipping that has come undone, which you can remove and reuse, or if the whipping is completely gone, using new whipping. I didn’t have any clubs that were ready for whipping on my drying rack right now so I just used an old club that I’d found that already had the whipping removed. I have a few tricks to make whipping easier, like a whipping jig I built and use, but for this diy, I’m going to show you the easiest way for a guy at home in his garage using the most basic of clubbuilding tools can re-whip an old persimmon wood. First put your club in a rubber golf club clamp and gently tighten so that the club is secure but can still be spun easily in the club. This is important to make winding the whipping easier. Next, grab your whipping. You can remove and reuse the old whipping or you can use new whipping. I offer 5-yard spools for DIYers that will wrap one club, so that’s what we’ll use here. Take the spool and cut off about 8 inches of whipping and set it aside, we will use this piece later. Next, take the spool and unwind it a bit. Lay the end whipping on the spool about 1/2” down the back of the shaft at the top where the whipping begins. You usually see a discoloration on the shaft to see where to start, just make sure it’s on the back of the head. Wrap around the shaft about 5 times over the end to keep it secure. Now, continue wrapping by using your right hand to guide the whipping while the left hand twists the club head to rotate the shaft in the clamp/vise. Continue wrapping the whipping tightly until you are about five wraps from the end. Take the 8” piece of whipping you cut off earlier, make a loop with it, and lay it down on the back of the club head on top of the whipping. Continue whipping over top of the loop your final five or six turns. Once you have reached the bottom, thread the end of the whipping through the loop. Pull the loop up and the end of he whipping will be tucked underneath the last five rows of whipping. Use an Exacto knife to cut the excess from the tucked pieces at the beginning and end of your wrap. Apply some clear nail polish to to keep the ends secure. And there you go. A nice, tight whipping, and an old club ready for many more rounds.

  7. Went to the range late afternoon yesterday to work on playing the ball slighty further back in my stance for more crisp contact, been hitting a little turf before ball lately. The range was packed and I hit for about 20 minutes, going up through the bag until I reached my driver. First swing I absolutely crushed and I hear “that was a beauty, an old one too”. I looked over and the gentleman in the stall next to me was commenting on my M09 persimmon driver. I happened to take my full classic bag yesterday and we proceeded to talk about my woods and my irons, and were soon joined in the conversation by the gentleman in the the stall next to me on the other side. Well, 45 minutes passed talking golf, life, and everything else. So instead of working on my ballstriking I ended up making two new acquaintances, which is great. It’s amazing what great conversation starters the old clubs are. I’ve had so many guys come up to me at the range when they see and hear the persimmon woods. Lots of fun.

  8. And a bummer for those not involved as they might have passed over for a test opportunity for someone that took the clubs and split. It’s work to do these reviews but sometimes members don’t treat it as such. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Yup, never even bothered to look at the site, they are of no interest to me. I’m sure they are great clubs and many guys will buy em and love em but give me a great forging from Kyoei. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. I like the looks of those Dunlop Diamond Max irons. [emoji16] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  12. Went to the range this morning with the vintage bag and worked through it from PW to driver. No short game practice as the greens are all recently punched. Went home, did all the yard work and thought “what the hell” and went back to the range with the modern bag for another hour or so. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Sitting at the club terrace watching playoff hockey and on my fourth Karl Strauss Red Trolley. Kids are running around having fun and I can watch some hockey in peace. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Wow. Has there ever been a bigger egg laid by a President’s Trophy winner than the one by the Lightning this year? I can’t remember one getting swept in the first round. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. If you like the clubs it is definitely worth it. 8 irons regripped will run you $50-$100 depending on what grips you choose. Still much cheaper than new clubs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
