It's a real beauty, perhaps that's why it has a 'beauty spot'

Love all the photos of these persimmons with "great grain"

The included photo is of a couple of RH woods we've been entrusted with-

100_0187.JPG

The bottom is a LH Toney Penna Model 65 with white insert (we've already shown)

The middle is a RH Toney Penna "The Natural", with graphite insert, and graphite shaft.

The top is of a driver which belonged to, and was used by, one Walter Hagen.
It is from Oakland Hills CC, a few generations ago, when "The Haig" was the pro.

The gentleman who provided all the information about it, chooses to remain anonymous, but please do not doubt for one moment "Sir Walter" used this club...

....on both courses....

Rex, the Penna with the black graphite insert is a winnah!!!!!!!!  The grain on that is epic. I always like a natural stain persimmon with grain like that.

Tex, your Seve Texan is in a class all by itself. Love that head and grain and green eom insert.  A collectors dream for sure.

Less than 1 week until the Masters...  Wood Bros "Augustan" Masters sample shown to Augusta National when Dave Wood was asked to provide samples to Augusta National. The final product was a Limited edition "Masters" driver that said "Masters" on the crown.  The grain is not easy to see on this club, but its very nice. I like the stain on this head because it reminds me of the bark on the tall Augusta Pines at Amen corner.

Another beauty, great deep brown stain. Wish the honorary starters were using one next week!
