That persimmon is garbage compared to my beechwood!
I love this commercial! I used to feel guilty about using a hybrid until I saw this lol. It really does put the whole "golf purist" thing into perspective. Someone may be a purist in relation to a particular generation, depending on what clubs they use (or refuse to use) but unless you are using that mallet thingy at the end of the commerical...lol
My brother was the last holdout that I know of who was still using a persimmon driver. He always hit it pretty long and right down the middle and couldn't get used to metal tchnology. He finally gave in about 5 years ago and is REALLY long now, but he still has a persimmon 5-wood in his bag. While he still refuses to go hybrid, that 5-wood sure looks like one.
