Guys I was dropping some stuff off up at the local goodwill and I saw a Wood Bros Driver.  I couldnt believe it. Its in mint condition and as much as I wish it was a texan it isn't.  It is called the "Indycar" and has a "cork filled persimmon" stamp located on the toe.  Its blonde with the "W B" stamp on top.  I would like any info on the model, mostly because I'm 22 and could maybe use the money unless I just game with it myself.  I love playing with persimmons and blades and this could make its way into my bag!

Thanks

Sounds like it's a Wood Bros "Corker" model. Search for "corker" on ebay and you'll see that they're going for pretty high prices. Like you, I'd much rather have a Texan or All American, but if you can get it for a cheap price (assuming so, since it's at Goodwill) you should be able to make a good profit selling it either here or on the 'bay.

sorry guys got tied up with work the last couple of days. I bought it and put some orange oil and cleaned it up and it looks perfect with the exception of the sole plate being mildly nicked up. It truly is gorgeous and what a find for 3 dollars! Let me try and put these pictures up

Stew, here are a few of my Wood Bros clubs. About half of my collection.  Most of these have the Texas sole plate, referred to as a Texan. One has the US Map which was a Proto type (1 of 4) shown to Augusta National when they were planning on a limited edition Masters club.

The corker and the Cool Kat were made to compete with the less expensive persimmon drivers of the time. The Texan and All American Models during the 80s and 90s cost the customer about 3 x the price of an average persimmon driver.  

Wood Bros also made outstanding fairway woods as well.  Wood Bros had more fairway woods in tour bags than any other manufacturer a lot of weeks back in the day.

rtv, usually in the spring and fall I'll game one of the Texans while playing the ol' ball. Always on a shorter traditional course.  Feels good.

For all you guys that love Wood Brothers Drivers here is an unusual Wood Brothers Persimmon Driver listing I found on Ebay yesterday, and thought one of you might want to add it to your collection. It is a Wood Brothers "All Japan Tribute Driving Instrument"  Freddiec this one looks like it is right up your alley.

What a wonderful day that must have been! - finding a WB in a club bin at a thrift store. Congratulations being informed enough to know what you found. Imagine how many people passed right by that club without knowing or appreciating what a treasure that club is. Well played, sir!

JohnnyHack,  I grabbed it, yes sir.  I Had one a few years ago that was in Brand New mint condition with a graphite shaft. This one looks a little used, but still in very good condition. Thanks for the heads up.

You are welcome Freddiec. I thought it was something you might want and when I saw you were on the thread yesterday I tossed it up there as fast as I could. If you refinish it be sure to post some pics.

Found a great pic of Dave Wood looking over his persimmon blocks  baking in the hot Texas sun, which was Part of his oil hardened process used back in the day. Some of these blocks look pretty sweet. Wouldn't it have been great to have been able to hand pick your block.  That must have been a fun opportunity. + few more of Dave's clubs on the deck.

I picked up brand new, never been hit Corker last week from a used golf shop. It has a stiff G Loomis shaft and I thought it looked cool and I was going to go hit it. Then I looked at them on ebay and saw the prices people are asking, $150-$675. Wow, are those prices for real or anywhere close. I've heard of the Texan and but never the Corker or Kool Kat.

I picked it up cheap so not much in it. Even has the original barrel headcover. I'l post picture when i get back home later in the week.

Freddie,

I had the privilege of picking several heads from Dave's rooftop oil hardening tanks.

I watched him hand cut and engrave several sole plates for my clubs.

As you know, the early stampings were hand placed, before Dave had stamps.

Those were great times!

I  have this dave wood driver with the green shaft although I did not know the story behind It and I Have the one that is a green stain with a special Loomis shaft made for the club with augusta flag on the usa plate and it is the better looking of the two .Both have not been hit.  I do know  the last surviving persimion driver /putter manufacturer was turned down for making a simular putter when they tryed many years back.
I could always be tempted to part with one ore both of them for the right price, but only for the right price.
Thanks

The Green headed persimmon with US Map sole plate is the "Masters" limited edition driver. I own one of the prototypes.  You should post a picture of yours... My proto also has a green graphite shaft as well.

freddiec is the Wood Bros. man!

My Wood Bros collection is always growing.

My wood collection numbers over 20, including clubs made for Seve(3), Hal Suttton, Jeff Sluman, and Hugh Royer III. + 3 early Fairway Instrument models.(2 of which were made for me by Dave).

Iron collection includes 3 sets of forged Championship balance irons.

Putters include 4 forged Bench Mark 60s models.

Always on the lookout for other significant additions.
