► In this video, technical editor Joel Tadman tests out a set of classic MacGregor clubs from the 1950s, many of which were used by the great Jack Nicklaus himself, and compares to the modern clubs he is accustomed to. He hit them on the Foresight Sports GCQuad launch monitor, out on the course at Burghley Park Golf Club and even tested an old Dunlop 65 ball from the 1960s, made here in the UK! Watch the video to see what he liked and didn’t like about the old set.
► Joel got hold of these classic clubs and balls from the Persimmon Golf Society Facebook page. It’s an online community where you can share images of your old clubs, buy/sell them and even get them restored to their former glory. Check them out here –
