    Idea For Golf Get Together In The DMV - Throwback Tournament

    So hear me out about my idea for the next golf outing here in the DMV (or even a THP Event sometime)

    It's called Retro or Throwback Tournament.


    • idea is that you play with older clubs.
    • they can be as old as you want ... 20 years old, hickory shafted, mashie, blades, etc.
    • play with an older ball ... feathery (if you can find one), true balata ball, or even the Rock-flight of the '70s
    • the thought is that we all compare our games now with our current technology vs the "lack" of technology of yesteryear
    • does it make a difference?
    • is technology that much better for your game?
    • or can you play with a shell attached to a piece of bamboo .... it doesn't matter, you have the game for all.


    I have a number of clubs I could choose from. Including Hogan Persimmon woods & Staff Blades of the late 70's.

    So what do you think? Could we make this work?

    Throw out some ideas & thoughts. Tell me I'm idiotic & it's never going to happen. :)

    GO!

    Retro/Throwback would be tough. Could change it to Garage sale or goodwill type finds. Limit $ spent somewhere like $20 for a full set.

    What about clubs have to be older than 20 years to be qualified?
