The Wood Bros. produced some of the highest quality, and most collectible persimmon woods. Offered here is an actual prototype driver that was produced by Dave Wood in late 1992 and delivered by Dave to Augusta National Head Pros Bob Kletcke and Dave Spencer at Augusta National Golf Club in late 1992 or early 1993. We reached out to Dave Wood, who stated that this is the only prototype of its kind that he produced while working with Kletcke and Spencer to produce persimmon woods for the Augusta National membership and the Masters Tournament. You'll see that the sole plate does not actually use the Augusta National logo. Rather, Dave used the sole plate from his All American driver and added a brass flagstick to quickly mimic the Augusta National logo.

When we sent photos of this club to Dave Wood, he stated that this is the very first time he has laid eyes on this prototype Augusta National club since he hand delivered it to Augusta National over 25 years ago. The club is unused and has a carbon graphite shaft.
