Patent Golf Club, Driver Claude Johnson's.
A fine and extremely rare driver with unusual shape head by Walter Claude Johnson. British patent received 4th of May 1893.
The shaft of this club is held in place by a brass socket and secured with a grub screw so the club could be re shafted without the need of a professional club maker.
The brass disk on top of the head can be removed and more weight can be added by removing cork disks and replacing them with specially made lead weights. These weights are stamped ' Ballast for Claude Johnsons Patent'. The plaque also has a number so if the head got broken you could order the same head by stating the number. This club has the number '752, pattern B'
The brass sole plate of the club is stamped by 'A. Teen & Co. Golf Club & Ball Manufacturers, 18 Eastcombe Ter. Blackheath, London. S.E Sole Makers.
The club is hickory shafted with an old, probably original grip.
