Antique Hickory Golf Club, Scared Head Driver.
A juniors scared head, spliced wood driver. The golf club with hickory shaft and sheep skin grip. The head with horn sole insert and lead weight to the rear with faint makers name 'HEALEY'. A very nice club in good condition.
The early clubs are made with a hickory shaft glued to the head by means of a splice or scare joint. This joint is then further strengthened by whipping with a pitched thread. All beautifully hand made by craftsmen of the time.
