Museum 'Object of the Month' - May 2016

The Australian Golf Heritage Society regularly sets up displays at golf events - the Australian Open, the NSW Open, the Ladies NSW Open, and so on. At each of these events, objects from the Museum are rotated through the displays so that visitors can see quality artefacts from the rich history of golf. Regardless of the rarity, value, collectibility or provenance of clubs that are put on public view, one that always grabs the attention of visitors is the Orizaba Power Pod driver. Read more at:

I bet the R&A had to be treated for shock when this "thing" was released.


Have a few clubs, mostly junk, but all playable.

Re: Museum 'Object of the Month' - May 2016

Thanks for your kind mention of my past comments re the "Power Pod" Jim Flood (Inventor) is a bit of a fan of mine! There is "No Question" that the Power Pod is the most talked about Exhibit wherever I have had a display. Giving rise to a Timely Reminder to Museum Curators, "It Isn't the "Exhibit" you deem to be the Most Important or Most Interesting!" It is the "Exhibit" the Visitors Deem to be "The Most Important / Most Interesting!" Simply Put.. The Customer is Always Right!

Jim Flood had been a Good Tour Player, but retired to put some of his Theories to Practice..

This was his Basakwerd Putter, where the "Neck" of the putter is at the "Toe" of the Blade.
