While it's not heard anymore, I still think the sound of a ball hit on the sweet spot on a persimmon driver is the best.

I have an old set of Haig Ultras and have taken the driver to the course with me. Just hearing that sound again when I hit it a few times made a flood of memories come rushing back.

This guy makes some good audio of one...  Three or four shots.  No music or talking.

There's something to be said for modern driver sound, too.  I love the "note" of my Tour Edge Exotics.  The rolling thunder makes a cool background track.

Now that I've stopped shooting Diet Coke through my nose...

It's actually Jack Hamm: Long Driver, Con Artist.   My dad bought one of those clubs for like $10 at the flea market.  Total junk.  Like hitting the ball with soft lead.  And the shaft had an airfoil shape which made it almost completely rigid.

What are some of your favorite golf musical notes?

The sound of the beer cart approaching...

The sound of golf spikes in the parking lot.  Never to be heard again.

Wow, you're right.  That "crunch-crunch-crunch" was sublime!  Don't some of the tour pros still use spikes?  I seem to remember Tiger slipping on a cart path during a swing due to hard spikes just a few years ago.

The sound of my playing partners’ wallets opening to pay off their bets.

So after they empty their pockets to you they ask, ‘ So Erik...what do you do for a living?’ Lol.

My voice, when my opponent asks where do we stand [front nine, back nine, or overall] ... "you are down # of strokes".

Is there anything sweeter sounding than the whoosh-plink! of a well struck 3 wood?  

 

 

Personally I like the tinkling metal sound my belt makes while I'm tucking in my shirt. :whistle: Other than that a driver sounds way better than a 3-wood. A 3-wood off the tee sounds like laying up.
