There was a strong turnout in northeast Ohio for the Strongsville show, which returned to the schedule this year following the COVID shutdowns in 2020 and 2021.

The roots of the three-day vintage event at the Best Western Hotel date back to the 1970s.

Although there was a lot of buying and selling, there were also consignments.

It may be almost April, but area goers woke up to 2-3 inches of late spring snow on Sunday morning.

The irons and wedges that Tiger Woods used in 2000 and 2001, including winning four consecutive major championship titles – known as the Tiger Slam – are on the block via Golden Age Golf Auctions.

The company claims that former Titleist VP Steve Mata, who ended up with the clubs after Tiger moved on to new ones, in fact took and passed a polygraph test when he originally handed them over to a golden age auction 12 years ago. They were sold to Texas businessman Todd Brock, who recently decided to sell.

The current high bid sits at over $500,000 and the auction won’t end until April 9.
