Those natural grain finishes look like fine furniture!

I've been trying to get a nice set of Hogan Woods to go with my beloved Hogan PC blades.

I remember last year at our club league wind up, we had 'old school' day and many were finding the old stuff impossible to hit... I loved the blades, but had been using them, but I was forced to borrow a set of old Northwestern woods from my brother-in-law. They were really beat, and the 'grips' were 'illegal' because they were game improvement grips (that still cracks me up).

Nice finds guys.

This ain’t an Ebay find, but maybe even better. I’ve been looking for a set of Dynapower Turfriders vintage 1962, and have had no joy at the Bay. There’s a golf repair/resale shop that’s been around for an eon or two. I haven’t been there in a long while, and when I was in the general vicinity had a wild hair, and thought might as well look.

I looked through all the used sets – a lot on consignment and came up old bladeless. I finally asked him if he had any, and he laughed and said there was no point in taking any in because there was nobody to buy them. I then inquired if he had any in his dungeon he had forgotten about. Long story happy and short – in a dark corner next to the thumb screw set up – 2 through PW Turfriders ala 1962, aside for the cobwebs in pretty good shape. He gouged me almost as much as you’d pay for a dozen discount Pro V’s. Friend is going to flatten and stiff shaft them. When I get them back I’ll send in the visuals.

Have you ever hit Dynas before?
I love all my old stuff but the Dynas (mine are 1965) are easily my favorite clubs!
Enjoy my brother---just an awesome feel those things are!

Played them today in the mud. When Lag's mandates are applied the feel is awesome. Can't wait to get the new shafts and flattening done. The good old heavy feel makes the light things I've been hitting feel like plastic toys. Having a higher number to go the same distance is fine by me. I'll trade look how far for look how close any day.

Oops! By higher I meant more club, should have said lower. The other thing that occurred to me is that my old swing was very vertical, and I had to go to graphite because my wrists have taken a lot of beating over the years. The old pork chop divots were taking too big a toll. Now with the flatter - just take a strip of bacon swing - steel shafts are again my friends. Another cool development from using Lag's system.

No worries, it might take a while and they might not look pretty :oops: but I'll post the "after" pics.

Now, does anyone have a good book on restoration of old clubs... :lol:

This is my last iron set for awhile!! I got my Hagens, I got my Dynas, but if you want some old clubs, how the hell can you not have some Hogans?!?!

1967 Percussions
2-E (that E wedge is sweet)
Havent hit them too much as my love affair with the Dynas continues...
GREAT shape---good grooves---they may have touched up the paintfill
They came with brand new Lamkin Crosslines---didnt look they have ever been used, but I will probably have my guy blow them off
and add 2 wraps and put them back on...
At 3 bucks a grip, that's 27 dollars right there...

I paid 48 bucks for the whole set

Prot,
I have some 1967 Hogan Personal Speed Slot 1,3,4,5 woods that came with my '63 Hogan IPT irons. They are in great shape. Let me know if you have any interest in them. I seem to prefer the MG Tourney woods.
Observation: Popeye must have been a Hitter.

MacGregor Flatbacks (MT2's)

There's "clean", and then there's "clean"! Perhaps the most "no frills" look I've ever seen in an iron design.
