Just cross my mind..What happen to all the old clubs ?

Everytime a new model came out, we will probably see it in the course or in some second hand shops or even in the market place. Even for those relatively new clubs.

However, what happen to those more then 3 years old model ? are they sitting in the storeroom, throw away, donate away or even pass down to someone else. Just curious. Example Ping G10 Driver, now it is almost extinct and can't really find in the second hand shops....mmmmmm

bro i hv a couple of oldie wooden maruman woods hanging on a wall as i like to collect vintage stuff... besides making a decent wall decor it does solicit good conversation amongst visitors who golf about the days when fairway woods were really once made of wood...

Actually, pretty long. Plays a nice draw shot too. Distance isn't too big a deal for him but shot placement is key.

He lups it Smile
