It is golf season again, and I am getting out to the range a bit with my “old stuff.” I know…why are you hitting that? The new clubs are so much easier to hit. Sure I enjoy playing the new stuff, but I always go back to the old stuff. The new gear seems to minimize the “m” in E=mc2. The old stuff was heavier and put the weight right at the sweetspot. That is where the saying “hitting it between the screws” came from. The old stuff trained you to be precise, and rewarded you for it. The new stuff enlarges the effective sweetspot, and hollows out the club. It allows for okay, and reduces the reward for precision.
So go up into your dad’s garage and pull out his old powerbilt and enjoy! Lots can be learned from the past.
