Golf clubs have evolved quite a bit over the years and technology nowadays is as good as its ever been. However, we would not be where we are today without a few failed experiments along the way.
From hollow clubs to square drivers, here are 10 of the ugliest clubs we have ever seen.
Cleveland VAS 792 Irons
The Cleveland VAS 792 irons were the cream of the crop back in 1995. The peculiarly shaped irons had a bent hosel to allow the shaft to almost be separate from the ball. Combine that with the totally odd shape of the face and you almost got yourself one of the only shank-proof irons ever made. To add aesthetical insult to injury, they also slapped a purple VAS shock absorbing system on the back. Ironically, Corey Pavin, who is notoriously one of the shortest hitters on tour, had these in the bag on his way to claiming the 1995 U.S. Open at Shinnecock Hills in Long Island, New York.
