One of my fondest memories in golf goes back to the late 60s when I was finally able to afford a top “pro” line of woods. I chose Hillerich and Bradsby PowerBilt Citations.
They were gorgeous. The persimmon heads were beautifully shaped and the signature brass backweight clearly announced these were the real deal. Plus there was that “lucky” horseshoe logo engraved in the soleplate.
Sadly, as persimmon passed away, H&B joined other classic club manufacturers like MacGregor and Wilson in decline as a top brand. But now they’re making a comeback with a new line of premium clubs and have brought back long-time endorser Fuzzy Zoeller to gain presence on the Champions Tour.
