Smylie Kaufman won the Shriners with this retro driver

Shriners Hospitals For Children Open winner Smylie Kaufman had a driving average of 327.7 yards en route to his first PGA Tour victory last weekend, all while using a 2012 driver that will get about $37 at retail.

John Holmes at PGA.com talks about the club below…

Kaufman games a Cleveland Classic 290 driver, which gets its name from its weight – 290 grams. The club boasts one of the most distinctive looks in all of golf, with a pear-shaped head and a sole design and color scheme that give it the look of an old persimmon driver. Its large, deep clubface makes it easy to generate solid contact, while the variable thickness of its face helps improve off-center strikes. It is also Cleveland’s first adjustable driver, with 12 different settings.

The Cleveland Classic 290 driver made its debut at retail in the spring of 2012 with a suggested retail price of $299.99. It currently has an estimated trade-in value of $16.64 and an estimated resale value of $36.98, according to the PGA.com Value Guide and Trade-in Network.
