Now that I think of it, I'm currently using the sand wedge from my Spalding Executives set. Not sure if it is from the original set I bought new around 1974 or part of a second-hand set I bought later to fill in the clubs lost or yet to be lost.

Recently playing as a single in a random foursome at Rancho Park, the elderly gent in the group pulled me aside on the ninth hole to show me he was carrying the same model Spalding sand wedge.

I only retired the full set in 2008.

Impressive with the Spalding Executive sand wedge!! That thing is a relic. I still have original Callaway Steelhead 3 and 4 woods, steel shafts, stiff flex. Absolutely love them!!! Plus I have an original Odyssey putter with black insert in my bag. I can't putt, though. Definitely see a change in putter happening this year once I have time to focus on my putting. I also play with my old 2000 Ben Hogan Apex irons quite a bit. They are sweet irons.

I have a Lynx Sandwedge that is at least 40+ years old; was my grandfather’s and made my first regulation birdie on #11 at Alondra with it when I was 13 (55 now).

Still in my bag even though groves are worn down…still gets the job done!!

My MacGregor blade putter, circa somewhere around 1965. I will have it for the rest of my life. It's heavy enough that only a small motion is required therefore you won't pull long puts off true. Oh, and it works great as a sand wedge sometimes too!! LOL

Used to carry a 1930s-40s mahogany 3wood too. BEST club for getting out of wet rough. I don't carry it much anymore because I tend to stay OUT of the rough as much as possible!!

Despite its' age (mid-60s vintage), this club still gets some action when conditions warrant it: the original Ben Hogan Sure-Out sand wedge. 56 degrees of loft, very low bounce, lightweight Apex shaft, and Neumann wrapped leather grip. It may look like a Model T next to today's offerings but still manages to get the job done. Swing-weighted at a hefty D-7, the wide flange makes it the ideal choice out of thick greenside rough or baked hardpan; the ball just floats into the air and settles down like a marshmallow.

I'm using the Spalding Executive sand wedge I described earlier because I lost my Ben Hogan Sure Out sand wedge recently when I left it by the practice green at Alhambra. Forgot it, drove back for it, and it was gone. About 50 ft from the golf shop and my name and phone number was on the shaft, so someone liked it as much as I did rather than turn it in or call me.

I'm considering picking another one up and have several on watch at Ebay.

Hmmm, maybe there's a way GK could hold a themed 'GK plays' outing...a homage to an old school course hosting an 'old clubs only' outing(maybe this has been attempted already)? Just spit balling here...maybe simple rules like nothing in the bag newer than 1990, or 1980, or ??
Same goes for the course, can't be newer than say, 1970?
I have a putter, irons(2-SW), persimmons and even a bag, that all pre-dates 1980...I would show! Maybe t8fish would show with his Executives? Maybe an honorable mention goes to anyone who shows and actually plays with a 1 iron!(nickesquire?) Putting contest(cpennbo)?
General Old?
Diamond Bar?
Jurupa Hills?
Fullerton?
Arrowhead CC?
?...

Had a 1 iron in my first Ping set, Karsten I's. A good 1 iron for me was maybe 15, at most 20 yards high and it would roll, and roll, and roll. When courses played firm, that club could go farther than my driver. Needed a decent lie to hit it off the fairway (forget the rough, not happening), but it was a good club to hit into the wind when I wanted good distance and did not want to get it nearly as high as I hit my 3 wood.

Loaned it to a guy on my Jr. College golf team who was having trouble hitting his driver. He hit it well, never got it back. Go figure!

I played with those clubs from the mid 1970's until around 2000, when I upgraded to Ping I-3's. My son now has that old set.

The goal has always been long and straight! But since I can no longer hit them long, hopefully straighter could be achieved more than occasionally?
