Just some off-season happenings in the world of traditional golf… FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The ninth annual World Hickory Open Championship completed play not too long ago. Montrose Medal Course (1562!) hosted the competition and by all accounts the weather showed up to challenge the participants in proper “Open Championship” style. Despite the harsh conditions, initial reports indicate that good times were had by all. See if you can spy the PGT insider in this Sky Sports footage:
I love reminiscing about the past but the purpose of this site is to promote playing traditional golf TODAY. What better way than some hickory golf on a classic links?
Next up: Traditional golf champions Louisville Golf reached deep into their vault to bring out something pretty special – the spec sheet on Tiger Woods’ personal persimmon driver! Apparently Tiger used this model to sharpen his ballstriking around 2004. That’s the strategy I’m employing now! Very interesting to see how open Tiger wanted the face shaved. 200 – 205 g weight with a phenolic insert rounded out this beauty.
And last but not least- some more good stuff from Tim’s collection. Nothing like the Hogans for pure beauty – true golf porn.
