Way back in 1963 a young Jack Nicklaus smacked one 341 yards…with a persimmon clubhead. Who knows what he could have done with one of those high tech… Continue Reading

I even caught some of the replay today on the Golf Channel…it’s OK you can admit that you all did too. Here’s a highlight reel from British TV.  It’s worth… Continue Reading
