Antique Left Handed Long Nose Putter.
A superb beechwood long nosed golf club by George Lowe. The polished head with makers stamp, 'G. Lowe', lead weight to the rear and the traditional horn slip along the leading edge of the sole, with three wooden pegs holding it in place. The hickory shaft and sheepskin grip are original. This is a very nice example of a left hand long nose golf club, (putter) from the 1890''s in excellent condition.

Head size:- 4 ½' long, 1 ⅛' high, 1 ¾' deep.

The early clubs are made with long slender shallow-faced heads with a ash or hickory shaft glued to the head by means of a splice or scare joint. This joint is then further strengthened by whipping with a pitched thread. All beautifully hand made by craftsmen of the time.
