THE #1 GOLF SITE DEDICATED TO THE BABY BOOMER GOLFER
Practically every golfer I play with is over 50 years old. Practically every one of them is a talented golfer- many are single digit handicaps. When I started thinking about a golf website, I did some research and discovered there wasn’t one that focused on the Champions Tour age golfer. And so Shooting Your Age was born.
My first set of golf clubs was bought from money I made mowing yards as a teenager. When I say set, I mean set. Three woods, 8 irons, bag, matching headcovers (1,3 and 4 if I remember correctly). Purchased at K-Mart in Knoxville, Tennessee. My first rounds of golf with that set were at Whittle Springs Municipal, the only course I could afford to play, and which is still there and still going strong as far as I know (OK, there were a couple of times we snuck on at Holston Hills Country Club- a great Donald Ross course that still hosts U.S. Open qualifiers).
One of the marks of being serious about the game, not to mention being (or at least pretending to be) good, was graduating from maple woods to persimmon woods. Ahhh, those persimmon woods, that just sounded a little crisper, a little harder. And looked cool, particularly when they had that blonde stain on them. I still have my set that was built for me.
If you know exactly what I’m talking about- if you immediately were transformed back to when you wore kilties on your golf shoes with metal spikes, then this is the golf site you’re going to enjoy. Even if you have no idea what any of the above meant, then this is still the golf site you’re going to enjoy, because you’re going to learn about some of the recent history of the game we all love.
I’m Brad K. Chambers. I hope you like Shooting Your Age. And I hope you’ll comment, and get involved and support the advertisers and try out the products and have fun and come back often!
