Antique Hickory Golf Club, Scared Head Driver.
A beautiful but small scared head, spliced, persimmon wood driver. The golf club with original hickory shaft and sheep skin grip. The head is with full brass sole plate, lead weight to the rear, but the maker is unknown. A very nice clean club in excellent original condition and is a very nice decorative golf club.
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.
