Here’s what I’ll be rocking, with a different putter to get that sweet sweet extra 15%

I’m not sure what the policy on giving out potential sources is, but in case y’all weren’t aware Goodwill has an auction site.

Might I recommend the below for an enterprising fellow looking to get into some 80’s equipment. Needs a little TLC but the price is (currently) right…

Just be careful not to start bidding against each other :laughing:

And now we play the waiting game…

Bonus thought brought up on the side that I wanted to throw out the to group:
Don’t be afraid to let your outfit match your clubs.

Got some early thousand’s sticks and you can find old baggy polo’s and pants a-la Tiger? Do it.
Even better, got some 80’s clubs and the Payne Stewart outfit to match? Be a hero.

How sweet would it be to have the group pic include a medley of period clothes on top of the old sticks we plan to bring??? EPIC

Oh good, I was already planning to do this. The hat above will be worn, just gotta figure out the rest.

From what I’ve seen, your hat collection brings straight heat. That one is absolute fire.

  • I’ll be providing cold brewskis and mementos in the parking lot before the first tee time
  • In addition to the points you’ll get towards qualifying for the FcF Roost Team, there will be a prize for our winners

Looking forward to it!

so to make sure I’m reading this right, if I’m trying to play in the retro category (1991 irons) I need to have driver/wedges/putter from then or earlier?

I think anything before like 2002 works, sheet says 20-35 year old clubs

@zeoalex correct-a-mudo, era is established by newest club in the bag.

And we’re shooting for an era more than a specific year, so as @ScottC said, anything you find that is mid-90s would be applicable to the retro category

I was just doing the same - goodwill hopping to make sure the driver/woods I bring out match the irons! Now it’s just a question if I bother to regrip everything or play em dirty…

Bueno! looking at some titleist 975D/F possibly, then just gotta find a wedge. Gonna break out my great grandfather’s putter…I have no idea what year it is from but there is NO chance it’s newer than 1990s hahah.

my mizunos are long and upright which I need to fix but they apparently just got brand new grips so maybe I’m just going to have them bent down…we’ll see.

I guess I need a ruling on my irons, they were made in 2000 lol

Assuming the rest of the set is the same age or older I’m game to call em retros. For better or worse, at your hcp it doesn’t impact things too much

My retro bag is lefty and I’m not sure if I can ruin my first round at the Mines by playing opposite handed. Need to start hunting for something more usable because this is an awesome idea for an event!

You say that, but I’ve never played with these clubs lol I have a wedge that’s also from like 99-2000, everything else is 90s

How many rounds do you have to get in to establish an LH hcp for the event a-la Tron from tourist sauce?
