  1. Do you know if there is anything similar to the hickory handicap (addition of 5 shots per round) for vintage clubs? I've dabbled in vintage and found similar to you – that i would be hitting an 8 iron for a 120 shot. The lofts make those clubs very short.

    Enjoyed the video….I think you did excellently, as this was the first time you'd used these clubs…..bet you'll do better after a few acquainting rounds.
    That bunker shot kinda sorta reminded me of when Bobby Jones Jr landed in that deep pot bunker at St. Andrews – yuppers, did the same thing…ahhh – life lessons 🥴

  3. Terrific looking clubs Nick. Not your best golf but we know you'll be back 😊

    Nice round. These clubs are exceptionally beautiful. Thanks for the vlog.

    Blue Flash certainly performed ok for you. 👏🏻

  6. Those darn Snowman's, they afflict me as well. You recovered nicely on the next hole. Very well preserved set of clubs and that old ball played well too. Thanks Nick for another vlog. I recently picked up a set of Walter Hagen "Haig Ultra" model 66 irons, produced from 1974 thru 1976 with newer Newmann Leather Grips. I know they're not as common as other clubs made by Wilson but they are lookers. They just don't make them like that any more.

    I feel for you Nick. I took a set of Faultless Lee Trevino MVPs out for the first time this morning. Beautiful irons that forced me to keep telling myself I enjoy this sort of thing. Thanks for the fine videos.

    Nice looking clubs. There's a hint of Daiwa Advisor DG-273 (the irons IBF used to win the 1991 Open) about them. Though of course, your clubs came first.

  10. With these older clubs are you suppose to scoop up at the ball rather than hitting down and through the ball like todays clubs ? I’ve never had a chance to use these yester-year type blades.

    Lovely editing, and great to see these clubs on the course. It makes me rhink i really should take my 1960 Wilson Blue Ridges out.

    Had some good shots. Thank you for sharing.
