Antique Left Handed Long Nose Tom Morris Golf Club.
A very good beechwood long nose left handed play club by Tom Morris of St Andrews. This great looking club has 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 polished head with makers stamped name, 'T. Morris', it has the original hickory shaft with sheepskin grip with scare head joint with good whipping. This is a very nice example of a long nose golf club from the 1860's in excellent condition. The head has a split that has been repaired at some stage to allow the club to still be used.

Approximate head size:-
a = 8.5cm
b = 2.8cm
c = 4.5cm

The early clubs are made with long slender shallow-faced heads with an 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.
