Always fun to sneak a peak into the bags of the greatest players.  Below I’ve posted some bags from Masters winners of the mid 1990′s.  The 1990′s were a particularly interesting time because persimmon was phasing out but solid core balls still hadn’t made the impact that they would eventually realize in the 2000′s.  Forged blades still ruled the day though.

    Interesting to see where Faldo put the lead tape out there high up on the toe. You would have thought he could have had Mizuno make a set for him that he liked. I’ve heard stories such as he would have his clubmaker remove the paint from the grips cause he didn’t like the look of the white paint, then reject them cause he didn’t like the feel of them without the paint.
