Randy Jensen has been called
 the Tiger Woods of Hickory Golf


Randy Jensen

"I've been associated with hickory golf since its earliest days. Back then, the opportunities for historically authentic play were very limited. But from the hard early work and passion of Chris McIntyre, which has now been amplified by the expanded vision of Dave Brown, the modern player can enjoy a wide range of historical balls.

Both as a hickory enthusiast and a golf professional, I highly recommend these balls."     ~ Randy Jensen

> "I've been playing the McIntyre Ouimet ball for the past year and find it to be the most consistent ball from tee to green for hickory golf.  It is safe and appropriate for my 1920 woods and 1915 iron set, and I've found no noticeable loss in distance through my entire set from my former ball, Bridgestone's dual-dimple e6 (80 compression).  I find the Ouimet model easy to keep clean with a damp towel and it putts like a dream.  I especially value the sound of the ball off the face of my clubs and the responsive feel from the hickory shafts.  Many avid vintage players now make this ball their only choice and I'm proud to see that some international events are now including the Ouimet model as one of only a few santioned balls for hickory match play competition.  This is a high quality product with a comperable weight and apperance to modern counterparts.  Bravo, McIntyre Golf!
