I've got this one coming out of the MacGregor custom shop made for PGA Tour Professional Don Olney.  

Welcome to our vintage tribe. You brought up my favorite classic golf topic. I just added a Jumbo M85TW to my MacGregor Jumbo collection. It goes great with my Jumbo 693 and my LFF drivers. The small

Yes 1 7/8” is the standard..

The Russian judge is stingy, 1 7/8 is a tough hurdle to clear.  My 5 screw M85 isn't that deep, but its deeper than normal. I have a 6 screw M85, an M33, and two M43s that come in at 1.75 or a bit under. Those seem standard to me.

 

My M85 5 screw, however, comes in just a hair under 1.8 inches, which is less than 1 7/8 but clearly deeper than the standard. So what says the rest of the judges? Is 1.8 inches a jumbo or just something in between. I guess it doesn't matter, its a wonderful club an I'm going to refinish it this summer and play it either way.

 

By the way, my M75 5 screw driver is also large for an M75, a hair under 1.7 inches vs. my M75 6 screw that comes in a hair over 1.6 inches. There's just something about a 5 screw.

I like that, it will be The Beast from now on. I can't wait to hit this bad boy, it sets up real nice. 

 

I would say that a 1952 M85W driver might be on my wish list for the future.  Not necessary to complete my collection but would make a nice addition to the two 1953-1955 M85W drivers I have now.

So I have the only jumbo 1 7/8” deep M85 I have seen. I have my very nice restored M85 1 3/4” deep that might qualify for a big block. Then I have 2 all originals C shaft and silver band M85s both 1 11/16” deep that seems to be the norm for so many of my persimmons and both out hit the 2 larger ones with the more modern steel and chord grips the one time I hit the 4 of them together about 10 balls each driver.

      This week, the PGA Tour is at TPC San Antonio on the Oaks Course for the Valero Texas Open. GolfWRX was on-site Tuesday to catch a glimpse into the bags of some of the world’s top golfers.
       
      The field of 144 is getting ready to battle starting Thursday for the $7.7 million purse, with $1.386 million going to the winner. The tournament is also the last event where players can qualify for The Masters, just like Canadian Corey Conners did last year.
