My first "real" driver was a Top Flite Intimidator with a titanium face which I found when I was around 14 years old.  Someone had snapped it in half and thrown it up against a fence at the local cour

Mine was similar to this. Hogan Speedslot persimmon. Had the 2 and 4 wood as well. My grandpa insisted I start playing golf at 15 and he gave me these. 

The first driver I had with a proper set of golf clubs was a MacGregor Dx Power Pyramid driver. Had the full matching set:   But my my first REAL driver was the OG Callaway Big Bertha t

My first driver was a MacGregor persimmon with a red insert, 6 brass screws on the face, and Gold Dynamic stiff shaft.  Last time I saw one it was hanging on a wall behind a bar.

My first driver was a Pinseeker Jumbo. Ordered along with a matching 5 wood. This is the best quality picture I can find on a quick search.

As well as feeling very nostalgic, I remember how excited I was to get a driver. I cannot recall how much it cost my mum and dad to buy but it was a big deal when I got it. Extremely grateful even now that they did get it for me.

my first driver was My Mom's  Wilson Strata Block (read as laminated) Patty Berg Cup Defender.  

 

First I purchased was a Wilson Staff, I think.  My fav from those days was a Macgregor eye-o-magic  (matic but I like the spell check name better).  with the speed step shaft.

This was my first driver as well, a hand me down from my dad. This club started my club hoeing ways. First driver I purchased for myself was a Taylormade r7 superquad, then the r1s, and now a SIM max d. Now I feel I've gotten to the point where my bag is pretty much set.

No pictures. I believe it had a blue plastic head with yellow plastic shaft and it did a great job keeping my younger brother and sister in line. Occasionally I hit plastic balls with it.

To show you how old I am relative to the average Golfwrxer, my first driver was a PowerBilt persimmon. Loved that driver, had a Dynamic C (stiff) shaft. Not a Dynamic Gold, but just a Dynamic black band. Eventually switched to TaylorMade and Ping drivers with graphite shafts. Yes, I even had a Ping plywood driver with steel shaft, but quickly went back to PowerBilt.

My first driver. 310cc head. I had been playing for a bit and used an old Alien 5 wood to tee off. Played in a charity match and won the driver for highest score with least amount of putts. I remember someone in the back shouting "Bah! Getting rewarded for mediocrity!"

 

From the get go I bombed the thing until after two seasons I cracked the head. Still have it in the basement somewhere. (pic from ebay, too lazy to go and find mine).

Mizuno SPL persimmon from the mid-late '80's:

*Club length = 43.25 inches

*Steel shaft, original Mizuno Frequency Tuned Lite Weight

*Grip is a Golf Pride ‘Victory’

*Clubhead loft = 10 degrees.

 

This is the actual club - I had it refurbished and it hung over a bar in my games room after I moved onto to metal drivers in the 90's.

Sold it last year.

Such a beautiful club.

You really learn to drive a golf ball when you grow up playing one of these.

Hank Kuehne was bombing that thing on tour when he turned pro.  It was the last steel driver TM ever made.

Obviously, I'm showing my age here. I started playing at age 13 in 1963 at a small town nine hole course. I've been told Golfcraft was a small company that was later purchased by Acushnet/Titleist because they made great persimmon woods. This old boy still sits in a corner of my den. IMG_0480.JPG.5afe9899f7e53d2e769e9260876e5288.JPG
