21st century golf clubs

Mike Hill, an Auckland social golfer and member of the Takapuna Golf Club, used this equipment in 2012. His irons (the square-headed clubs in the foreground) were Australian-made with carbon steel heads and carbon shafts. The drivers (at rear) had wooden shafts and forged steel heads. The wheeled trundler enabled Hill to transport everything without effort.
