Right on!! Hickory is pure golf. None of this driver and what ever wedge is needed. Pure feel and the enjoyment of the feel and sound of a shot hit on the sweet spot is truly "sweet!!" What a shame that young golfers today don't know what golf can be, yet.

Excellent article!!
The writer was obviously playing with a 'guttie' type ball. He should try using a modern 'soft' ball and good pre-1935 clubs (as opposed to pre-1900), and he may change his mind about switching!
Also Hickory clubs show up faults in the swing very clearly. Most people who play a lot of Hickory golf find their regular handicap improves dramatically. Mine went fro 13 - 7 in the course of a few weeks.
Now there's a good reason to try it out!

I would love to get the opportunity to do something like this. In 2006 I went to St. Andrews and walked the old course on a Sunday. I had a good a good laugh when I saw people jogging and walking their dogs on it.
