    Only one wedge, 57 deg…….makes you think

    You should also take a look at Al Geiberger’s bag from his 59 shoot, similar but with persimmon woods and a balata ball, and the course was nearly 7500yds – WOW

    Would like to see the “bombers” on tour today play that bag. Kinda pointless article with only one picture though. Norman was awesome , hope he made a full recovery from Covid as he got a bad reaction to it.

    Man, if only he wore a 7 button golf shirt during his Masters days instead of the 3 button variety, he might have been able to don a Green Jacket.

    I’d have to say Norman is the 2nd best golfer of all time just behind Tiger. Tiger will go in history as the best, way better than Jack. So, it’s Tiger, Norman, and then the race for 3rd.

    For the older gen… I came along right after graphite shafts starting popping up in woods. What exactly was the X100 driver/wood shaft? Was it just an X100 2 iron shaft or was there a specific wood shaft they used to make?

      no. the specs were different on the wood shafts we used. IIRC the x100 .335 I had was far lighter (like 120 grams) and we had to tip them to keep them quite a bit to keep them firm feeling. I had an x200 as well and it was a little more stout (again iirc as it was a long time ago). I don’t ever remember coming across an x300 personally.

        The X300s were basically just heavier. Norman was the best driver I’ve ever seen, which I still feel today, so college me had this driver with this shaft. I, um… didn’t have as much success with it.

      There were steel shafts with a .335 tip size DGX100 was about 120-121g. Just as with irons, the X100 was the lightest of the weight sorted Dynamic shafts. X300 would have been 6g heavier, and theoretically stiffer due to the implied thicker shaft walls from the extra material.

      There were also tapered wood shafts, many persimmons were shafted with these. R flex were .277 at the tip, S flex were.294. These were ultimately replaced by the parallel 335 wood shafts. These tapered shafts were 44″ long instead of the 46″ length of the parallel steel wood shafts.

    Greg Norman’s 1994 WITB was very similar to the 18 year-old Tiger Woods’ WITB.

    Nearly the same model driver;

    Norman had his butter-knife Norman Grinds which were not terribly different from Tiger’s (partial) Mizuno MP-14’s;

    Cleveland wedges;

    Ping Anser putter;

    Dynamic Gold X100’s in everything. And while Norman had DG X300 in his driver and 3w, Tiger’s X100 woods were tipped about as far as possible.

    That was the thing about equipment on Tour in the 1950’s to the 1990’s; there were surprisingly few top-tier choices. Almost every Tour bag featured Dynamic Gold shafts stuck in forged blades, and the woods were real woods and very often they were precious MacGregor antiques from the 50’s and 60’s. So precious, that once a Tour pro found a driver he liked, he would play with it — usually for years — until it broke. Then came metal heads, and urethane balls. 1994 was the twilight of the golden age of golf equipment where truly superior players separated themselves from the field.

      Just to clarify that the Cobra Normans were in fact terribly different than the MP 14’s and 29’s used by Tiger and others.

      The Cobras were a throwback to the MacGregor Tommy Armour Silver Scot 915, 925, and 985 models. They had a high muscle which raised the CG and they were quite skinny from heel to toe. These clubs were stamped Tourney Custom for some of guys in the 1970’s MacGregor stable like Nicklaus, Miller, and Weiskopf.

      Even when Norman was reping Spalding in the 80s, his irons were forged by MacGregor’s Don White. It would have been great if Norman could have turned MacGregor around in the late 2000s.

      The VIP Tour CB 92 was the last MacGregor iron I owned and still think they have

        *still think they have great lines when compared to the best players irons today.

      Ball that HAD to spin. And clubs and shafts to keep the ball DOWN.
      That was that era.

      Have owned several sets of Greg’s Spalding & Cobra irons he used in tournament play. With the shafts he used as well. Could barely get them airborne…with any carry with the modern ball. The epitome of telephone poles 🙂
