Walmart commercials.  Seriously.

The last Walmart commercial I saw featured a song by The Who.  I remember when the song came out and how radical it was.  Now it's being used to sell stuff at Walmart.

This made me feel old. Our club has become the home course to our high school's golf team. I am standing on the practice green chatting with some of the high schoolers and the topic of golf equipment comes up. Long story short, I had to explain to them the difference between a persimmon wood and a laminated wood as well as the terms balata and surlyn. At least a few of them had heard of blades/muscle-backed irons. Niblick? No chance.

I feel old after 18 holes and then sitting down for lunch.  Rigor mortis sets in and I can't feel my legs - have to limp to the car to get home.

The bathroom mirror at any course usually quickly reminds me. Out on the course it is usually knowing some points on the course I used to be able to reach with a drive that are no longer reachable for me.
I'm with you on that issue. I've been at my club for 35 years and I'm playing five irons from where i used to play eight irons.

A season highlighted by shoulder, hip and knee injuries will make you feel old.  Trust me.

Broke out Trackman and hit some with my old Tommy Armour persimmon driver. Still feels good but goes about as far as a good three wood. Carry was around 240 + a couple and roll out about 250. Looked really small. Missed shots about 225 total.

I'm guessing you are talking about the real persimmons but I always thought that the TOMMY ARMOUR 845 FORGED PERSIMMON DRIVER had one of the best finishes ever for a driver, kind of deep translucent rootbeer colored crown... still have one in my closet just because I love the look lol.

MY, HOW TIME FLIES!.. :scare2:
Speaking of old entertainment....So I am looking at the guide on my television the other day and Private Benjamin and Risky Business are playing back to back.  1980 and 1983. And it struck me that those two movies came out longer ago than the gap between my sophomore year of high school and Gone with the Wind.
