President of the British Golf Collectors Society and hickory golf enthusiast Philip Truett, wearing period dress, poses for a picture with his playing clubs at the Royal Automobile Club's Vintage Golf Day on its Old Course in Epsom, Britain, May 10, 2015. Before titanium, before graphite, before composites and before steel, golf clubs had shafts of wood, ideally hickory. That era ended 80 years ago for most golfers. But it lives on today among a coterie of enthusiasts who revel in their anachronism, spurning modern clubs that promise maximum "moment of inertia," minimum "cross-sectional deformation," and other attributes from that twilight zone between technology and marketing.

A car atop a pole promoting a second-hand car market is pictured near the entrance to the Shuguang Disaster Prevention Theme Park in Haidian district of Beijing July 4, 2011. Shuguang Park, originally one of 33 disaster collection points scattered across Beijing with emergency shelters, was converted into a sports complex with two golf courses, two restaurants and tennis courts to "generate more revenue", local media reported on Monday. New businesses there are estimated to rake in up to 12 million yuan (US$1.86 million) a year, according to news reports. REUTERS/David Gray (CHINA - Tags: DISASTER SPORT BUSINESS)

Shahrzad Naraghi pushes her motorcycle out of her garage at her home before going for practice in the mountains overlooking Tehran July 3, 2011. Naraghi started riding motocross eight years ago to spend more time with her daughter Noora who became interested in motocross after watching her father compete in races, and began riding motorcycles at the age of four. The pair raced against each other at first and in women's only motocross races in Iran in 2009. In 2010, Noora travelled to the United States, completed training courses and raced in competitions sponsored by the American Motorcyclist Association. Women are banned from driving motorcycles on the streets of Iran. Picture taken July 3, 2011. REUTERS/Caren Firouz (IRAN - Tags: SPORT MOTOR RACING)
