Just curious. The photo is of my best ever buys

 

The putter cost five dollars from an op shop, in absolutely perfect condition. I love it and have done since the first time I used it.

 

The ball though  is my real pride and joy. I used it constantly on Par 3's in the lead-up to  my taking "The Longest Travelling Ball 2" to Brunei and Thailand as it was a ball I absolutely did not want to lose. Another op shop purchase it would have cost me $0.20c. I've tried to find out where and when it was made but I can't.

My best purchase is definitely my current set of irons.
Bridgestone J15 CB 4-P with Recoil 670 F3

I absolutely adore them

I'd have to say the centre-shafted Odyssey #7 that I bought from Muffin for, like $50.  It has been my gamer for going on two years now.

On a similar note.......my 3-4 wood (adjustable) that I bought off GPJ...who bought it off Lefty-tiges/tigertuff (or whatever he calls himself today?)

My Cleveland Mashie hybrids. I hate the look of them but they go so well. I've wanted to replace them with sexier ones for the last three years but nothing comes close. I even ditched my 3 wood for the 15.5 degree option.
