Forum Thread of the Day: “Which clubs will you never sell, and why?”

Published

on

Today’s Forum Thread of the Day comes from theothertwo, who asks fellow GolfWRX members to reveal the clubs they own that they will never sell, and their reason why. The thread contains a mix of modern and rarer clubs, with some great stories behind why they mean so much to our members.

  • MattyO1984: “Scotty Cameron Newport Tel3, Titleist 975D, Titleist 714CB’s – I got them from Paul Lawrie, so they are sticking. Titleist 990B 2 iron – a reminder of how hard I used to make golf by playing clubs that were impossible for me to hit well often enough.”
  • leo the lion: “Two Odyssey Dual Force Wedges – 52 and 56 – with stronomic inserts. Still the spiniest wedges I have ever used. Bettinardi QB8…………My mum passed away earlier this year, and her name was Betty. She was the ‘Queen Bee’ of the family. Just a reminder sitting in my bag of what a great Mum I had.”
  • JonT: “So true, my son bought me a used set of MP30’s many years back, and I loved them; went through a bad spell and sold them thinking I wasn’t up to the demands of hitting that sweet spot anymore. Bought them again this year, after eight years away, and I am in love again. Won’t sell them again.”
  • Tad: “Set of Srixon I701 tours, and an Odyssey White Ice #1 putter, All were In my little brother’s bag when he passed away seven years ago from Cancer. He was the one who got me into golf 26 years ago.”

    When I was 15 I fell in love with a putter in the pro shop of my home course. I convinced the pro to let me try the putter on the front nine. I went around in 12 putts and bought it at the turn. The putter was a Spalding “Cash-In” putter, the year was 1965 and it’s still the only putter I’ve ever needed. Every other aspect of the game has changed, but a comfortable putter is still your best friend on the course.

    I will never sell my 2015 Great Big Bertha woods with Kuro Kage 50 Tini shafts, my Callaway XR irons w/Speedstep 80 shafts, and my Titleist Vokey SM4 Oil Can wedges, along with my Scotty Cameron putter. Why, because I love the sound and feel of the woods and irons, and I also like the fade adjustability of the Driver, I love the look and spin of the wedges, and the putter is a keeper for the long term.

    My original Eye 2 sand wedge. It still has great stopping ability thanks to the square groves and gives me tons of confidence in both sand and flop shots.

Here are a few posts from the thread, but make sure to check out the entire discussion and have your say at the link below.

  • cvhookem3: “Seems like he was hinting at that with his equipment changes at the US Open. Good for him. He should be a lot of fun to watch.”
  • bladehunter: “Figured. He had near a full ping bag anyway. Love this kid. I really predict great things. Loads of raw tools.”
  • ImagineThat: “I think we’ll be seeing a lot of Viktor Hovland in the future…enough where his name will no longer appear strange. He seems to really be an upbeat guy with a nice personality, and he has a nice friendly smile to go with it.”

Bettinardi’s annual Summer Social was held at company HQ in Tinley Park, Illinois, last week. For RJB enthusiasts from as far away as London and Japan, it’s an opportunity to get together with like-minded individuals, shoot the breeze, oh, and check out some of the coolest putters in the world.

For those of us not lucky enough to join Bob, Sam, and the 60-plus collectors in attendance, Bettinardi was kind enough to furnish us with a few photos of the one-off and limited-edition flatsticks featured at the 10th edition of the gathering.
