Keiser University College of Golf students recently enjoyed playing in a scramble golf tournament using persimmon woods and blade irons at The Fazio Course at PGA National Golf Resort and Spa.
As part of their History of Golf class led by Professor Ken Martin, the opportunity to use golf clubs from half a decade ago provided the group an appreciation for the skills and abilities of golf’s greats of the era.
The team of Professor Martin, Royce Hunsberger, David Fleck, and Hong Seok Im were victorious with a score of 7-under par 65. Finishing one shot back in second place at 6-under par 66 were Professor Longabucco, Bradford Schwarz, Brad Ropke, and Kyle Hudson. Professor Wixson, Chris Tosonotti, Sonny Vollkommer, and Michael Lugrand finished in third place at 5-under par 67.
Champions such as Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, and Johnny Miller all shot incredible scores and won major championships using these golf clubs. In the History of Golf class, students have had the opportunity to play golf clubs from the 1920’s forward to compare to today’s technology and realize how far golf club development has come.
