Title: Weird Clubs
Description: Neither in the classified section nor in cyberspace chat rooms do we run across ads offering top dollar for old Stan Thompson Ginty woods–a fact that is hard to fathom. The company is out of business, of course, but the V-soled Ginty was a beloved “trouble club” before the term was even invented. Among golfers who were around in the 1970s, there remains a deep reservoir of affection for it. A recent conversation with the sought-after instructor Gary Wiren revealed how the Thompson Ginty first got its name.
