A pair of bookends hand crafted from high quality traditional materials with original 1940's club heads. The persimmon wood heads are stamped 'Tom Wilson, Scottish Champion, 1926 – 1927' and are mounted on oak with the bases weighted with lead.

Tom Wilson (born 1890 in Aberlady) was appointed golf professional at Kirkintilloch Golf Club (1921-24), Bishopbriggs Golf Club (1924-25), before settling at the Glasgow municipal nine hole course at Littlehill where his wife looked after the catering duties in the tearoom.
