Turning back the golf clock by playing with hickory

One does not see today's skiers dusting off the old wooden slats. The ones that were physically attached to the feet with tough leather straps on boots tightly laced to the feet. They were a broken ankle or leg waiting to happen on ungroomed ski slopes, let alone serious head injury from flailing helicopter blades after a fall.
But some golfers are hearkening back to the good old days when hickory shafted clubs with funny names - not numbers - filled a bag that was slung over the shoulder. And courses were walked, not ridden in carts.
About two dozen golfers hit the fairways at The Fairways on Oct. 10 for a beta-test of a trip back in the sport's time machine to hit the little white ball.
