Cool, eh?  Snead got a heavy Izett driver from Henry Picard and he loved it. Hard to find in persimmon.

The 4 wood is like the grandfather of the modern hybrid - so cool!

Drewspin - that is a lovey set you have there. What is the "hybrid" 4-wood like to hit ?

I have a George Izett 5-wood with Al Houghton's signature on the crown.

Al Houghton played in many PGA major tournaments and had a long and distinguished career as a club professional.

https://mapga.com/te...ughton-al-1989/

Since this club has Al Houghton's signature and no model number, it was certainly ordered by Houghton, and is either a sale item from his pro shop, or a personal club.

Gave this Izett Hand Made Persimmon Driver Model as a Birthday present last year...

DSCN9188.JPG

Izett had the records, and even fixed the leather grip end

DSCN9189.JPG

It was custom made in 1972, for a gentleman named Tony Steinbrecker

DSCN9191.JPG

Have only seen 1 LH Izett Driver, but am sure there are others.

Might get to ask them sooner than later.
