Keiser University College of Golf and Sport Management students recently participated in a scramble golf tournament using persimmon wood heads and blade golf clubs.
Presented the clubs from the 1960’s and 1970’s as part of their History of Golf class, students Rob Libiszeweski, Aaron Barnett, Brett Cobb, and Alan Gower enjoyed an 18 hold scramble format, posting an outstanding score of 10-under par 61, highlighted by an eagle, birdie, and a birdie start at The Fountains Golf Club North Course.
The opportunity to use clubs from half a decade ago has provided the group an appreciation for the skills and abilities of golf’s greats of the era. Champions such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and Johnny Miller all shot incredible scores and won major championships using the clubs. The lesson has also provided students opportunities to witness how far golf technology has advanced, as they’ve enjoyed the game with clubs from as far back as 1920’s.
