"I like these irons. They're forgiving, they're straight, they take out a lot of the curve, which is good for me."

OLD SCHOOL

Cleveland's Classic Tour weds yesterday and today

CHANCES ARE not too many golfers miss persimmon drivers. The sound of them maybe, or the look, but as far as hitting a ball, the metal stuff is easier and more rewarding. Cleveland combined the old persimmon appearance with new-age performance. With its deep-red body, gold accents and pear shape, the company's Classic Tour looks like a driver of yore, but it's full of modern technology. A peak inside shows exactly where and how.

1. Face thickness varies from 4.3 mm in the center to 2.8 mm at the edge to maximize rebound.

2. A thin, light crown saves weight, which can be redistributed around the head.

3. A weight at the deepest, lowest point improves launch and forgiveness.

4. A rib across the sole tunes the sound and feedback for solid feel.
