@downlowkey  You have to give that TM Mid Rescue a few test hits.  These are still my favorite clubs in the bag. I have the 2, 3, 4 & 5.

 

That Ping Putter looks like it is in great shape too.   Great finds!!

Funny you should mention that Tmag rescue, snapping pics I was thinking it looked fantastic at address. Unfortunately it's a regular flex and feels like an orange whip in my hands. Maybe I'll check diamondtour.com for a cheap hybrid shaft. I'm still using a 10+ year old Nickent 3DX 17* Ironwood. Tested a hundred different hybrid options over the years but nothing matches the versatility of the Nickent.

I recently took a job at a Goodwill headquarters for IT and our main donation center is right next door. I go over there a good deal to fix stuff and I have to walk past their golf donations every time. It kills me to not dig through it. There is some decent Callaway irons that I've seen. Also saw some Taylormade RBZ drivers and woods. Haven't looked too closely because I know I wouldn't be able to leave them alone afterwards 😂

We have a brand new Goodwill store about 4 miles from us. The amount of "stuff" donated to this store is staggering (central FL). There's a huge number of golf clubs donated there but no big names or really decent clubs. Just clones and older low end pieces.
Does GW have the capacity or the internet ability to sell the better clubs on EBay or other sites? It just seems there r no high end clubs, not even old models.
The average price of clubs there is around $3.00-$4.00.

That might be one of our stores then. Some of the higher quality items go on to shopgoodwill where people can bid on them. It takes away from the usual hunting people are used to, but it helps sales. I can't really speak on how it gets decided as to how it gets decided what gets put online. That's not really my area to speak about. Now if you want to talk about computers and databases I'm your guy 😂

That makes sense. I'm sure there is a computerized listing of products as they r sorted at the stores. I think they got it together.

Found this last year while I was antique shopping with the girlfriend. Had a couple booths set up outside and this gentleman said $15 and it's yours. I told him I only had a $10 bill and he said that'll do. Probably the best $10 I've ever spent. Even though I'm a lefty.

Srixon I-302 irons. I believe it was 3-PW, but missing the 5 iron.

    he best players don't get overwhelmed with mechanical thoughts as they stand over the ball. They pick one feel-based thought and go with it. Steal one of these tour thoughts for some pre-swing clarity.
