Hello folks, I'm new to this site and get a lot of enjoyment from reading and viewing the articles, especially about the classic clubs.  I am just wondering if you would consider the MacGregor Tourney muscleback irons from, I think, 1974 to be classic?

I'm currently playing a set of Ram Tom Watson's from the mid eighties which I've had for years and really like but I'm getting tempted to try something older.

Definitions of "classic" will surely vary, but I'd consider both the Rams in the bag & the MacGregors you're thinking of replacing them with to be classics.

Thank you for the feedback, it is good to feel that I'm on the same wavelength, if/when I get them I'll post a picture.  I also have a set of Wilson 1200 irons, I think circa 1976, which I sometimes use and to me they are pretty classic.

Iron Factory has a good rep and has generally produced good product, but I admit I have trepidation, considering they were busted for dumping toxic chemicals directly into the water supply.

If you have to ask....j/k.   Seriously, each person's definition of classic will vary, but in golf equipment it generally means a subtle beauty that has withstood the test of time and is a standard by which others measured as opposed to flash w/o true beauty. Another member here had best analogy relating to this I have seen- think Grace Kelly, not Jessica Simpson.

We had a bit of discussion on this subject on the persimmon golf today website a while back.

The consensus was that it was less about the date and more about the design.  For example a classic blade might be a forged blade with minimal frills, low/no offset, and relatively small.

It was felt that classic gear should respect the challenges of the course and properly punish and reward poor and good swings accordingly.  Hickory gear fits that bill

A blade is a blade for me, all of them are a classic design, and therefore all Classics, but there are clearly Vintage Classics, Classics, and Modern Classics among the blade portfolio lol. Retro is a term I’d probably use for 25+ years old, so pre 1988. Vintage for me = Hickory.

FWIW, it's a modern classic in my book; even a vintage classic fan can't deny its design innovation, popularity and influence. Heresy alert; though I'm a blade lover, I picked up a full set of black dot Zings for the (recent) history alone! OK, and for the weird toe as well...

IMO if any club is a cavity back it cannot be called a classic. In any of the classic tourneys they have that is their rules also, no ping putters and no cavity back irons of any models

I find myself asking "if Hogan was playing in XYZ era, would he have hit that club ?" if the answer is yes then you probably have a classic club :) Ping Eye 2s nice as they are, probably would not have ended up in Mr Hogan's bag, but for sure they are one of the most important icons of club design in the history of the game.

The equipment rules of the persimmon tour are interesting, in that they limit wedges to 56 loft maximum, drivers to 44" maximum, and you can have up to 16 clubs.
  • A player may not carry more than 16 clubs.
  • A player must carry at least two wooden-headed clubs.
  • A player may not carry more than one putter.
  • No club shall exceed 44 inches in length.
  • No club shall exceed a loft of 56 degrees.
  • No club shall have a static weight of less than 13 ounces.
  • Shafts of golf clubs must be made of wood, steel, or aluminum, and exhibit the patterns of traditional stepping. Only wood-shafted clubs may exhibit a smooth shaft property.
  • Driving clubs must be made of wood, pear-shaped, as in the tradition of the game.
  • The Driving club face or hitting area of a wooden driver may not measure more than 3 inches wide and 2 inches in height.
  • Driving clubs shall have a static weight minimum 13 ounces.
  • No Driving club shall exceed 44 inches in length.
  • Iron Clubs must be within the game’s tradition of forged metal (blades), and must not exhibit the presence of any perimeter weighting in an attempt to enlarge the sweet spot of the club head.
  • Iron Clubs may not have milled or textured faces other than v-shaped grooves within the fine tradition of the game. Box-shaped grooves are not allowed.
  • Iron Clubs shall have a static weight minimum of 14.5 ounces.
  • An Iron Club must have a hosel where the shaft is affixed to the club head.
  • Iron Club heads must not exceed 3 inches in width from the apex of the toe curve to the outside of the hosel unless the club was in production and generally available prior to 1950 (“grandfather clause”), in which case the toe to hosel measurement maximum is 3.5 inches.
  • Iron Club face height may not exceed 2.5 inches.
  • Putters shall not exceed 38 inches in length.
  • A Putter club face shall not exceed 4.5 inches in width, two inches in depth, and two inches in height.

Thanks, seems like as good a definition as any for my purposes.  After this and other responses above and generally looking through this forum I feel much more confident that I'm in the right space.  By the way I did end up buying the Macregors and have posted a picture in another post. Don't know if this will work as link to that post:
Tourney by MacGregor, any info on these appreciated

If you have to ask....j/k.   Seriously, each person's definition of classic will vary, but in golf equipment it generally means a subtle beauty that has withstood the test of time and is a standard by which others measured as opposed to flash w/o true beauty. Another member here had best analogy relating to this I have seen- think Grace Kelly, not Jessica Simpson.

Weren't they Homer Kelly, and Homer Simpson's daughters?  :D
if Homer Kelly is Grace's father, would that make Bobby Clampett her step brother?
