More about: James Anderson
Antique Long Nose Golf Club.
A superb beechwood long nosed golf club by Jamie Anderson of St. Andrews. The polished head with makers stamp, 'J. Anderson', lead weight to the rear and the traditional horn slip along the leading edge of the sole, with three wooden pegs holding it in place. The hickory shaft and sheepskin grip are original. This is a very nice example of a long nose golf club, (Spoon) from the 1860's in excellent condition.
Head size:- 5' long, 1 ⅛' high, 1 ¾' deep.
The early clubs are made with long slender shallow-faced heads 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.
