Persimmon Golf Clubs: Remember When Woods Were Wood!

Taylor Driver ClubsI started playing golf just a few years before Titanium drivers hit the market. Big Bertha, King Cobra, Taylor Made Burner, Cleveland V.A.S. were the clubs of choice off the tee. Very few players on tour were still using persimmon drivers, Justin Leonard and Davis Love III come to mind, but it seemed that the time had come and gone for a club head material that had been around for decades.

Persimmon drivers, while very, very accurate were harder to master then todays large drivers, you actually had to have some skill in hitting the ball solid and straight with these beauties. The sweet spot was about the size of a golf ball, most times smaller, the heads were tiny, shafts were stiff and short, but when you hit one solid you knew it before you even looked up to see where the ball was going. The art of hitting these clubs has now passed, but there are still a few holdouts out there.

The people at Louisville Golf are still making persimmon drivers and fairway woods. they make a wide range of clubs from Drivers to Putters, but it is how they are making these "new" persimmons that is catching peoples eye.

Several of their new designs offer a larger head and a lower center of gravity like todays titanium giants. The size? 285cc's, far smaller than the new 460cc drivers out there, but for a purist, this is a huge wooden head! They are now incorporating technology that helps get a little better ball flight from these new designs like a "dished crown" which lowers the CG for a higher launch angle. Persimmon already being a very forgiving material for hitting golf balls is getting a second chance at life from Louisville Golf.

their fairway woods are far more popular due to the new dished crown technology with a heavy sole plate, they can put over 75% of the club heads weight under the ball for very easy to hit fairway woods. Add a graphite shaft, and the modern golf ball and you really are not loosing much distance at all, and you will be finding the fairway a lot more due to the natural gear effect of persimmon and for those not so willing to move totally to persimmon, they now make a titanium faced insert in their newest persimmon driver!

I would suggest you at least give one a try. You will be surprised at how straight you hit it, how much distance you are NOT losing and most importantly, the look, feel and sound of hitting one of these modern classics will bring you back to another time in the golf business, and if you have never hit a persimmon driver before, you may find yourself with few in your bag for next season!
