A hickory wooden shafted Forgan ‘FORGANITE’ wood. This is a brassie as it is clearly marked on the sole. These Forganite woods are not easy to find and they were made by Robert Forgan of St. Andrews, Scotland. It has quite an unusual shape to the toe area with a severe angular cut to it. The heel area also has an angular cutaway, but not as severe as the toe. I believe this feature was done to reduce weight and it certainly lessens the overall footprint of the sole during the golf swing. This unusual feature was definitely done at the Forgan shop and not some after market alteration. The ‘Forganite’ stamping is clear on the crown. Robert Forgan developed a process of impregnating his wood headed clubs under pressure with extra oils. This made the wood heads harder, more weather resistant, and very heavy; so no extra lead weighting was needed. Also no leading edge slip plates where used on these clubs as it was thought the wood itself was strong enough to resist play nicks. These Forganite woods don’t come with sole plates on their brassies as is demonstrated on this club. I’m not sure if sole plates came on their spoons or not, my guess would be they did not. Any Forgan club undergoing this pressurized oil process was marked as a ‘FORGANITE’ club on the club head. No cracks in the club head, neck, or shaft. Very solid playable club that has seen very limited play. Original wooden shaft has no chips or cracks. Shaft has the ‘Forgan’ stampings and remains straight. Intact 12 ½ inch maroon leather wrap grip with intact whippings. Grip is almost certainly the original and isn’t dry. 43 ½ inches in total club length. Truly a stunning club.
