I saved a few of my father's old clubs, and gave the main irons and drivers and golf bag to a friend of my ex's. I suppose I rue that day, but I'd have been carrying those things around each time I moved for several more decades if I hadn't given them away.
Assuming at least one of the few clubs I have isn't aluminum (or is it?), I wonder when the change occurred in the manufacturing process.. (I'm guessing the sixties.)
Anyway, they're interesting. I looked them up online some years ago, but.. forget what I found. I'll read what is shown on the heads -
1) The most interesting to me says on one side, Mary Pickford Co. (she was an old Hollywood movie star).
On the other side, it says Hand Forged; Sturr Bilt; Tartan chromium plated; putter; matched.
Does chromium spark?
2) another says nothing but Wilson HOL-(something)
3) another hard to read from some sort of corrosion that I don't want to try to get off. Or do I? Maybe some oil... 60Fcorrosion, then San.... corrosion.
4) Blaster; Burke; unintelligible word or words; Sav-A-Shot
Now I'm curious again.
On the Golf-fire - witnesses?
