Product Description

This wood has the mark of R.Forgan & Sons and the “King’s Crown” on the Crown of the club and the stamp of Mitchells of Manchester, the head has been stained in light honey, a full wrap around brass sole plate is fitted and held in place by six metal screws and has a lead back weight, the face has a fibre insert and the face lines have been re cut. Research tells us that Robert. Forgan & Sons St. Andrews. Forgan became club maker to HRH the Prince of Wales in 1863 and used the prince’s plume of three feathers as his mark. He was primarily a wooden clubmaker and is thought to have assembled and sold iron club as early as the 1860’s. Forgans used “King’s Crown” mark when the prince became King Edward. A son, Thomas (1853-1906), took over the firm after his father’s death in 1900. This Club has a good playable condition shaft and a new Grip and Whipped with waxed linen thread which has then been coated with shellac to protect it from any bag damage that may occur.
