That's one of the great things about living in Australia. Potentially you can play golf 365 days a year. Yea baby!!
I always wanted to visit Australia as a young man, but never did. My sister moved to Sydney and married an Aussie. I can remember phoning there on christmas day when it was -35 C here and plus 35 C  there, and wishing i had moved there. I do remember them moving north of Sydney and having a 2 hr each way commute, housing was expensive and day to day bills seemed high. I joked that with her nursing and his banking job that they could move home and live like kings. They said no way to cold, well a few yrs later they are living here and doing well. The golf 365 sounds pretty good vs our 165 golfing days.  Damn i should have moved. lol

Yes Sydney is expensive. Highest house prices in the country. There are a lot of places cheaper to live and lots of courses too. Traditionally we have clubs with established memberships in all areas and cost wise you can be a member of a pretty good course for a reasonable amount. It is not an elitist sport here.
We therefore play in a lot of club comps, under R&A rules and our rounds are logged for handicapping by a national body. It's a good system and we play competitive golf by the rule book in a monitored pace of play. So it is not just the weather. We have great courses and a club system with uniform handicapping that is great for becoming an established club player.
Sounds like a very golf friendly country. Obviously you have taken advantage of the fine weather and system to get your handicap at a level not duplicated by the masses. Iv'e taken a liking to the Tams but will hold off on the Vegemite.

Magpies - try to source a set of the 2010 or 2011 v-forged, tour or non tour. The 2012 look great but I've never tried them.....yet.
Awesome clubs and probably still my favourite JDM manufacturer.

Funny reading this thread about Yamaha iron.  They were awesome and they weren't cheap.  Comparable to PXG prices now back then...

Yamaha and another iron called Diawa I think?  They were graphite shafted.

Nice.  I remember an old man at my club had a full set of graphite Diawa irons back in the mid 80's.  They were so expensive.  Way more expensive than current value PXG's.  They felt so soft.  Just like butter.

I thought Endo was still forging Yamaha Irons?  I'm totally sold on their forgings after acquiring my 2015 OnOff Kuros a few years ago. The Yamaha's look very nice
and my club Ho craving will eventually have me buying a set.

That would be the SX-25. There's a single 5-iron and single 8-iron on eBay right now for ~ $20 if you want to stroll down memory lane...

Not selling.  I searched for years for a like new set after owning a few somewhat beat up sets of the SX25's.  Did you know Fourteen Golf actually designed the SX25's?

Didn't know that but totally believe it.  Thanks for sharing.  I wonder how much Hal Sutton worked with Yamaha or vice versa?  Back in the day when he was the man.

I was a junior golfer when Hal Sutton was playing Yamaha.  Watched him play in my hometown at the Pensacola Open.  Seems like Scott Simpson won with Yamaha irons as well.

I actually just scored a set of Hal Sutton Grind SX-25s at my local Goodwill yesterday. Pretty clean aside from some bag chatter and surface rust I was able to wipe off. Overpaid for them, but my god are they gorgeous.

Does anyone know the loft specs on these?  I know their contemporaries in the late 80s were usually around a 22* or 23* 3 iron and a 48* PW, but I'd love to know for sure!

yup  thes eare my  yammies as well.
reshafting the 6iron with a  MODUS  dp, the original DGR400 are not quite as smooth as modern steel.
not bad ... but  the modus might make these pretty sweet, take a he ck of a lot of weight out of them as well.
these come in at 445 gram 5iron, that's pretty  damn heavy.

Unfortunately I never did find the specs. I plan on getting the lofts and lies checked eventually.  If you find the specs let me know!

I actually just scored a set of Hal Sutton Grind SX-25s at my local Goodwill yesterday. Pretty clean aside from some bag chatter and surface rust I was able to wipe off. Overpaid for them, but my god are they gorgeous.

Does anyone know the loft specs on these?  I know their contemporaries in the late 80s were usually around a 22* or 23* 3 iron and a 48* PW, but I'd love to know for sure!

Ever find the specs? I just picked up a set.
Unfortunately I never did find the specs. I plan on getting the lofts and lies checked eventually.  If you find the specs let me know!

I played Pings, Wilsons, Mizunos... And all of the sudden, a set of Yamahas SX-25 come to my life. Dang, this set is just spectacular. The feel, the sound, are they really 25 years old? Oh well, they are now in my #1 bag. For the win.
I heard rumors that they were forged by Miura but haven’t been able to confirm it. Also, did anybody find out the original specs? Lofts? Much appreciated!

Used, but in awesome shape. US. I also got a head for a 2 iron. I have to do some research to see if I can find a match for the shaft, if not I will use a modern graphite shaft. These clubs are so awesome that I took out the hybrid from my modern Mizuno bag and put the Yamaha 3 iron in it.

reshafted the set with NS dps( modus 120 protos). only  hit the 6 and 7  on course last week so far  but it seems like the new shaft has  REALLY brought the set to life, they felt great,  and went !!!!
The shafts added a few yards over the original DG things. VERY finicky to reshaft due to the pin in the hosel  that needs to be removed and swing weight issues, I had to build them 1/2  inich over  my standard  to accomodate the weight issues. but  I simply choke down a smidge and its ok.
u can get  pretty  funky with these they go  all over the places if u so choose, very unlike modern design, extra long, thin , really thin topline and semi thick sole, these tell u when u have missed the centre, which I like.

might take these to the links and play a few rounds with em  to really test their mettle.

impact  from centre is as good any thing ive got bagged  these days . and  they simply look freeeeeeekign good in my bag.

proves once again  everything   (new)  that glitters  aint necessarily  more golden!

might grab another set of  2010  tour models sans the Pw.. Yamaha PW really fkk irks me , its a square.edge shovel . hate it... rest of the set is fine, JDM have always  had a PW  conundrum.

I bought a cpl of  yururi 46*   2010 raw  heads, had one  reset  to48* and  I play that with a lot of my sets to  offset the offset issues I have with the PWedges.

yammhy 2008-2011 are THE NUTS.. those ones  are ENDO forged, try em , they are cheap as these days!!
