Walking into a curio and antique shop in Golden, Colorado, my attention was drawn to an aged golf bag. A hand-written sign priced the clubs and irons at $3.00 each.
Working extensively in the golf sector, I attend high profile and prestigious events, such as the annual PGA Show in Orlando and last October the President’s Cup in Columbus, Ohio. More so, I provide daily support to retailer Golfsmith for their entry into the South Korea market with Korean partner Golfzon. As a result, I am often given the opportunity to try the latest cutting edge clubs, both those in development and those on the market.
Pleasantly surprised, I found the time-battered golf bag contained clubs and irons branded MacGregor. In short order, I grabbed a 4 Wood and a 3 Iron and became the proud owner of classic 50s clubs.

Now the “new clubs” are displayed prominently in my Golden, Colorado office. I must say, they feel and swing great. The classic 4 Wood and 3 Iron may be aged and worn but the craftsmanship endures.
