G'day everyone. I've come across a set of Top Flite 'Pro Forged I' blades from a lady in Sydney that has had them in her garage for years.
1 iron-PW, amazing condition, have barely been hit.
They're obviously a custom set for a touring pro (R.R stamped top left)... the only pro that comes to mind is Irishman, Ronan Rafferty who won 4 Australasian Tour events between 1989-1993.
I know he was a Spalding contracted player back in the day.
Can anyone help? I've attached a photo.
Cheers, Ru

Ronan was a fine player, cracking ball striker! But I sure he was a top flite player, if they're his that's some find as they look sweet! You could always try twitter....and ask him, worth a shot??

Beautiful man just beautiful and like you said straight out of the custom shop. Back in the day Spalding , Macgregor and Wilson had extensive custom departments. If you would please share with my buds over on the Classics Forum they will get a kick out of those. There are also a couple of Spalding nuts over there too

Ronan was definitely a Top-Flite staffer at one time on the Tour. Amazing looking irons, thanks for the picture!
