    Description

    McEwan long nose approach putter circa 1870. Old dark brown stain and finish, oval lead back weight, three-dowel horn sole, and impressed block printed "McEwan" stamp on the head. The hickory shaft and neck whipping are old and possibly original. The grip is a modern russet replacement. There is an additional area of whipping on the shaft, below the grip, which probably covers an old crack. The stain appears to be original while the finish was applied sometime later. McEwan is one of the most famous names in club making. It was a family business, which started with James back in the third quarter of the 18th century and continued for over 150 years. Several family members made long nose clubs, including the aforementioned James, as well as Peter, Douglas, Peter II (Douglas's son) and Douglas II (Peter II's son). The McEwans started making clubs in Edinburgh and added a shop in Musselburgh in the mid-nineteenth century. Circa 1870. Head 5 3/8" from toe to heel; face 1 1/4"h; shaft 37". Good +.
