found this Driver, any idea of what they are called.

5 posts in this topic

I found this driver while helping my PopPop take a couch from his friends house, and he said he was getting rid of this and he does not know because it belonged to his father.

I know it is a titleist but I am curious to its model

The handle says "Swing Rite"
and at the top it says"Golf pride" with "Victory" spelled in a circle.
Also if it helps it was made it the USA

If someone could identify this for me I would really appreciate it

I also got 2 wedges of the same type so I figure if I get these down I can know what model they are.

Thanks.

That is fairly old.  I recommend contacting someone at Titleist.  You can link in with them on this section of their site.

Awards and Achievements

What you have there is an old Titleist persimmon driver. It's from their "micro balanced" range (hence the funny symbol). The "swing rite" only relates to the make of golf pride grip - again a classic of the era.

Certainly not exceptional or rare, but still a good club in it's day. Probably dating from the early 70's.

I agree those are Titliest from the early 1970s (best guess). Looks laminated rather than persimmon. Fits with what I recall of them.

    • Using Game Golf to Analyze Gaps
      That might be the case. My 4 iron is a more game improvement iron. It's a cavity back versus a muscle back. Also, I do use it off the tee more than the 5 iron, so the lie is perfect.  Maybe my game is more suited for a more GI type iron in the long iron set. It's something to consider looking into.   
    • "The Putting Bible" by Dave Pelz
      The very first thing Dave Pelz says In his book----- after the acknowledgements is. " I want to start this book with a short explanation. Look closely at the title. Notice that  I don't claim this to be  "THE" putting bible. I call it Dave Pelz's Putting Bible because it truly is "my" bible on putting. It is a compendium of my research, my studies, my test results, my teaching philosophy, and my beliefs about the art and science of putting. It is my bible or if you prefer, my notebook or data log  book-into which I have transcribed my thoughts, interpretations of test results, observations, and theoretical work that have been instrumental in forming my understanding of putting. It is also from this work that I draw my philosophy for teaching the putting game in the Dave Pelz Scoring Game Schools".      As far as the 8 seconds is concerned, and with apologies to Mr. Pelz let me summarize on page 122 5.6 Two Types of Muscle Memory Ridding a bicycle is one type of memory (long term) you never really forget. Your mind remembers only the body's most recent sensations (short term memory), and these, too, fade by 30 percent every 8 seconds. True or not I will still take his word for it. As it was done as scientific research. "about as accurate as the story of Noah's Ark"...............don't know, can't say, wasn't there, but will say this. If a booming voice coming out of the sky tells me to build a boat....trust me, I'm building a boat!!        
    • Rickie Fowler's new high-tops & pants...NOOOO!
      I have not wore high tops since '88,
      Not sure I could even fit anything labeled "skinny" or "slim fit". I prefer loose. Then again I have never been accused of being a fashion plate !
    • Changes in your bag that you are most excited about
      At the end of last years season I switched from my Nike cart bag back to my Ogio Grom stand bag.
      I am looking forward to walking and carrying every round this year.
      I like the idea of consolidating and shedding all the things I don't need, yet seem to carry.

      I wanted to go find a new driver (mine is 2009), maybe something adjustable with stiff shaft, but I dont think I can afford that this year!
