PGA Tour Players Hit Vintage Clubs at Northern Trust has posted a nice article about some tour pros hitting “vintage” clubs at the Northern Trust to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the event.  These vintage clubs range from true hickory-shafted woods through early metal woods from the 1990s (ancient stuff when you’re 22, huh?).  A video is included, the best part of which is Charlie Hoffman stripping a hickory and proclaiming “I could play with this!”

    As if we needed any further proof that golf equipment has evolved, according to TrackMan data, McIlroy’s carry distance with hickory was 226.1 yards; he stepped it up to 269.9 with persimmon; and 270.6 yards with the original Callaway Big Bertha. When the tournament begins on Thursday, McIlroy likely will use his Nike Vapor 3-wood to avoid driving over the green.
