I still use old clubs including my grandpa's wooden 7wood. Its one of my favorite clubs. Amazing how well you can play when you force yourself to focus on making good contact and not expect the clubs to do all the work for you

Everyone loves that big ass feather weight aluminum wind catching sail on the end of their shaft, instead of that small heavy aerodynamic ball smashing goodness. That never made any sense to me, physics can be harsh mistress. I have a set of nicklauses that are about 10 years old now, the driver is stainless steel, but small and heavy like old lumber and i hit it better than any new driver.

Appleby should remember. He's old enough. Metal woods weren't around when he was a teenager. And the first metal woods was no improvement. Persimmon drivers was not so long ago. I take my set of McGregor tourney woods and 1987 northwestern irons to the course once in a while. A little more unforgiving but pretty much same, same as the new clubs I have now. Playing with the balls from back then is another story... The guys at the Champions tour should play a tournament with their 1990 clubs once in a while. Only Langer would really suffer, I dont think he wants his 1990 putter back...

my first set of clubs came courtesy of an old man who couldnt play anymore. they were old, worn out wooden woods with glass shafts, and irons that must have been from either the 60's-70's with red and white faux leather bag to match. when i finally moved up to modern clubs, it felt so strange, but my game did improve quite a bit.

jack Nicklaus could hit these clubs with a wound ball some 320 yards easy, today with modern equipment if in his prime he would be hitting over 400! todays pros should play a full round and score to see if they begin to compare to the greats of the past. something tells me not so much given the forgiveness and advantage of the modern stuff they all learned on.

back then I could hit my macgregor 325 yards with just about any ball but a good titleist would go 375 and 25+ further roll out. I stopped playing in the early 70's and when I picked it up some 35 years later boy was I disappointed when I could not even hit a 200 yard drive. doing better 10 years later but I will not forget what I use to do.
it also helped back then I was a hockey player who could slap a puck real hard so a golf ball was easy.
back then it was also very easy for me to shape any shot left, right or straight as desired. but not today yet...

Ok, now lets see the balata balls combined with the vintage clubs. The technology that has made the most difference is in the ball...for the PRO. The clubs have made the biggest difference for us amateurs. There is more FORGIVENESS etc. Most of us hacks could not hit true blades. Sure as shit could not hit a 1 iron like Jack.

However, for these great players with the pro swings that go over 120MPH on average, the ball makes the difference. For instance the Pro V 1 technology only truly "activates" for certain swing speeds that are over 105 MPH etc. ALL tour players have that, and that is why we marvel at a Jason Day hitting a 3 iron 260+ yards.

I want to see them hit the balata balls with the vintage clubs on these courses that are 7400+ yards. That, would be interesting.

I graduated High School in 1981. That fall year during golf season I averaged 275-280 off the tee with Oil Hardened Persimmon Driver. I still average that, getting a few 300's here and there. Sure, I can still put a move on the ball, but I've lost speed in my 50's. It's not me, it the equipment. Longer shafts and better golf golf balls. But I miss the softend hits of wood clubs and I miss........ the sound of metal cleats on hard surfaces!!!

Same here -- long hitter for a good player (not for the long-drive gorillas, that's a different thing), and 30 years after my really good years in mid-to-late 20s as a plus-handicap amateur, I can actually hit it a good 20 yards past where I was then. It's completely ridiculous.

It's been a putting contest for a long time now. It began back in the 80s and has in the last 10 years or so reached the point where just about all of the tee to green skill has been taken out of the game at the highest level. That's why Spieth has been dominant and why he blew up at the Masters. He is the best putter but only average everywhere else. That's also why Woods, whose main strength was from 50 yards in, finished out of the top 20 in majors TWENTY TWO TIMES. By contrast the incomparable Hogan finished out of the top 10 only ONCE between 1940 and 1956 despite his career being interupted TWICE (by WW2 & his accident injuries which affected the rest of his life let alone career). That's the difference between having a complete great & consistent tee to green game and just being great on & around the greens.

The 1 iron still exist. They still make them. Depends on the company, but you'll find that 1 iron with a '2' or '3' on it. They've strengthened the lofts and lengthened the shafts so much that they are 2 clubs stronger now. It's about marketing and selling the new an greatest thing.

I have a set of 1993 Lynx Paralla irons. The PW is 50 degrees. 10 or so years later I bought a set of Maltby CER's. It came with a GAP wedge and no 2 iron. What in the world is a GAP wedge???? Oh, its your 50 degree club. See, they needed to cover the Gap they made trying to make clubs stronger. So now the 2016 Taylor Made irons are 2 clubs stronger than my old Lynx. When is it going to end?

Ben Hogan stated that the Pure Feel of a well struck tee shot went from the club up the shaft into your finger up through your arms and right into your very sole. ---------- And have to agree with Ben. But that feel he was speaking of was that OLD SCHOOL FEEL WHEN YOU CAUGHT A TITLEIST TOUR 100 LOW TRAJECTORY BALATA DEAD IN THE 'SCREWS'. OF A TONY PENA DRIVER. Can you dig it? I knew that you could. Something any golfer who started after 1990 has never felt nor will you ever feel. That feel was solid and when you hit it in between the screws you damn well knew you'd left nothing on the tee and anyone standing there watching new you caught it in the screws cause you could hear it.------------------------------ I guarandamnteeyou.

knightowl50
knightowl50 - 2 years ago
That is mainly because courses are longer and tighter. Yes, the scores are pretty relative. The technology is really in the golf balls for the pros.

They all have swings that could fit any era. However, the balls that are used today really give the touring pro with 120mph swing a distinct advantage.

Most amateurs go out and pay top dollar for those ProVs etc, but it does not fit them. Meaning, the balls are so sophisticated that they fit swing speeds. Which is why we are mystified by a Jason Day taking out a 3 iron from 270 and sticking it. The cores of those balls actually activate from a certain compression and only pros with those great swings can get it.

Jon Lanier
Jon Lanier - 4 years ago
Yea, the balls don't spin nearly like they did back then. Thing is, those balata's spinned so much off the face of a driver, a fade turned into a slice pretty quick. Ball today don't spin off the driver, but will on approaches. Amazing technology we have. But I think something has been lost.
stevemcgee99

They don't need to hit the ball further. Just put the tee back where it was for decades, and use those clubs. It's not necessary to have such long courses. I can tell you golf was very amazing for decades with wood.

I agree with ChristopherMTLvideos  that there should be a PGA event where every pro would have to swing vintage 1960's, early 1970's woods made of persimmon and the irons that went with them. I've been playing with modern metal woods and the newest irons with larger sweet spots and last summer tried some used 1960's or 70's Wilson Pro staffs with the name Sam Snead on them, beautiful laminated woods and  matching forged irons. I hit the new equipment  about 20 yards further and much more solid. Granted, I'm a higher average golfer than the Pros who can hit the sweet the size of a nickel, even on the old blade forged model irons, but I couldn't gage distance at all and I couldn't hit the greens on island shots. I was always shot.  I just wasn't hitting the shots solid. The irons made a funny ringing sound and the woods seemed dead off the face.  I prefer the modern clubs.  I used to think it wouldn't make much of a difference maybe 5-10 yards, but it seemed to make an extreme amount of difference to me.  I still hit them dead straight most the time, but the distance, feel, ringing sound and lots of vibration did me in. I didn't enjoy or like playing with the old club set.  Even though the woods were clear finish, beautiful laminated wood, beautiful to look at, I put them in storage just days after buying them on E-Bay.

+Aaron Johnson Do you understand the logic that Jack's competitors had the same equipment as him? The players today have the same equipment. So if young Jack played today, he'd have the same advanced equipment.

+Aaron Johnson The players Nicklaus went up against were using the same kind of equipment. It's not like he was handicapping himself against the rest of the field.

+Cornwall1888 they are seriously pampered pooches nowadays. as christian says give em the old balls as well and the irons from jack's era. jack finished 2ND IN 19 OTHER MAJORS as well as winning 19 majors without all the upgrades these guys use today and i am also speaking fromexperience.

They should've given them old golf balls, too.
That would've been entertaining.

+IrishKnight15 Mate it is all in the Ball.The old woods hit low and ran a lot I saw Snead hit a driver and a one iron to within 20 ft on a 601 yd hole at the 1959 Canada Cup in Melbourne. The one iron did not get anymore than 20 ft  high the whole way. What a swing he had.

+IrishKnight15  Sorry I don't agree in my case.  I'm one of the longer hitters when I play with any amateur and I swing and hit the modern clubs so much better.  I didn't think modern technology would make much of a difference, but I found it really does, at least for me. See my earlier post above 2/19/2016 where I write about my recent experience with 1960s Sam Snead Wilson Staff clubs verus the 2000 model Wilson Staffs.  The only club that is a year old is my large head metal driver I made with component parts I bought at Golf Smith.
