Antique Vintage Old Scottish Rb Wilson Swan Putter Hickory Wood Shaft Golf Club For Sale
Very good plus condition hickory wooden shafted Scottish
smooth face R.B. Wilson putter with a swan neck design that also has an offset
head. What really makes this swan neck
special is that the face is noticeably offset in front of the hosel. Most putters that offset the ball striking
surface put it behind the hosel; this one tries an opposite strategy with the
head in front of the hosel. I’m guessing
circa 1900 due to the smooth face. Peter
Georgiady has a good deal of documentation on this highly respected clubmaker
in his book ‘The Compendium of British Club Makers.’ Apparently Mr. Wilson stopped making clubs in
1910. He learned his skills by
apprenticing in the shop of Old Tom Morris in the 1880’s. Quite a unique club head from a great
maker. Stampings state, “R.B. Wilson,
O.K. Special, St. Andrews, Made In Scotland.” This
club head has beautiful dark brown patina. No rust or pitting. No hosel pin is detected. Hosel join is flush and tight. Beautiful original wooden shaft is without chips
or cracks. Shaft is clearly stamped, “V.L.
& D.,” as is the club head; so they were the retailers out of New
remains straight. 35 ½ inches in total
club length. Very nice period leather
wrap grip over underlisting is intact and likely the original. Intact grip whippings. Please see my other wood shafted and vintagecollectiblegolf clubs. Some are quite rare. All without reserve.
