The Classic Driver, one of this winter’s most buzzed about golf clubs, is officially available for pre-order today online! This comes on the heels of a pretty big week for the Classic on the PGA Tour. Rookies Jason Kokrak and Charlie Beljan – a pair of Cleveland Golf staffers making their Tour debuts at the Sony Open in Hawaii – gamed the Classic and finished first and second, respectively, in driving distance! Kokrak averaged 328.0 yards off the tee, while Beljan wasn’t far behind with an average of 324.8 yards.
In case you haven’t seen the Classic Driver yet, here it is:
With the styling of a persimmon wood (the club that Cleveland Golf originally made a name for itself with), it’s sure to turn some heads. Looks aside, this club has serious technology under the hood. In line with the RightWeight fitting system of the 2011 Launcher Ultralite Drivers, the Classic comes in three different models to help every player find the right driver: The Classic 270 is for maximum head speed, the Classic 290 provides a strong combination of distance and accuracy, and the Classic Tour (weighs 310 grams) is for tour-caliber workability and precision.
To optimize each driver with Ultralite Technology, we’ve once again included the premium performance of Miyazaki graphite shafts. The 270 features a C. Kua 39 (the lightest shaft ever played on the PGA Tour), the 290 boasts a C. Kua 43, and the Tour has a Kusala Black 61, a favorite among better players for its feel and stability.
The head of the driver is where this club really comes to life. While the gold-colored trapezoid section on the face brings you back to the days of yesteryear, it also is a phenomenal alignment tool to help keep the ball in the center of the club face. Speaking of the club face, the Classic has the largest and deepest face ever produced by Cleveland Golf, which leads to the largest effective hitting area and promotes a penetrating ball flight.
Needless to say, the Classic is a club that will be coming out of the gates hot. It will hit shelves on February 17, but you can pre-order yours here right now.
