The Classic Persimmon era of golf from Post WWll through the mid 1990’s had many great players, clubs, even golf fashion. Which time period do you collect or just appreciate most?
I think the late 1950’s early 60’s was really a special time in golf. Hogan and Snead were winding down their careers, Palmer was just hitting his stride, Gary Player, Jack Nicklaus we’re starting to make names for themselves. Macgregor, Wilson, and Hogan were making some of their best equipment ever and there is no denying how sharp dressed the players were in that time.
I’m realizing that my equipment choices are leaning a bit more towards 1980’s, early 90’s as I really like the stuff I grew up seeing, Cleveland Classic woods, Macgregor and even Cobra irons. Really, the last gasp of classic American forged irons.
As for the early 1990’s fashion, I hope that never makes a comeback.
