Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management Students Play Persimmon Heads and Blade Golf Clubs

Students in the Keiser University College of Golf & Sport Management Bachelor of Science program participated in a scramble golf tournament using persimmon heads and blade golf clubs during their Technology in Sports Coaching class this week.

The students were given golf clubs from the 1960’s and 1970’s to play The Legacy Golf Club. In the scramble format over 18 holes, 4-under par 68 was the lowest score posted by Ray Boyle, John Lipsey, PK Chittapatra, and Fiat Napsuwanwong.

The opportunity to use golf clubs from half a decade ago gave the students 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 these golf clubs.

In the Technology in Sports Coaching 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.
