Lot Information

Thomas Carruthers (1840-1924) patented the short socketed iron in 1891 (patent number 19684), one of the earliest for iron clubs. The length of the hosel was dramatically reduced, a hole drilled through the sole and the shaft sawn off flush to the sole, the idea being to reduce hosel weight and concentrate it in the blade. The heads were forged for him by Anderson of Anstruther. It was one of the few patented clubs to have been successful, remaining in production into the twentieth century.
