Antique Hickory Golf Club, Scared Head Brassie, Jack White.
A beautiful scared head, spliced, persimmon wood Brassie with original hickory shaft and polished leather grip. The head is with full brass sole plate, lead weight to the rear and stamped 'Jack White', the well known professional and clubmaker from Sunningdale. The club is in excellent original condition and is a very nice decorative golf club.

Jack White (1873 - 1949) was an excellent player and won the open Championship in 1904 at Sandwich. Like so many great professionals he learned golf whilst caddying. It is not widely known that he was related to the famous North Berwick golfers Ben Sayers and Davie Grant. The 'sun' cleek mark is attributed to Jacks position as professional to the Sunningdale Golf club outside London (1901 - 1926), where he made many clubs in his shop where he kept a sizeable staff. White was the maker of the woods used by Bobby Jones in winning the Grand Slam in 1930, and they were also sold on a wholesale basis by the British Golf Company. In the mid 1930's White retired from Sunningdale and returned to his hometown in Scotland, Gullane, where he opened a new factory. His business was the only industry located in this small village which has many fine golf courses, including Gullane and Muirfield.
