Description

    Rut or track iron, circa 1880. Good patina on the small oval head, smooth face, short, deep nicking, hickory shaft, and russet grip. Back in the 1700 and 1800s, when many golf courses in Scotland were located on town or public land, residents often drove their wagons over the courses on their way home, creating ruts from their wheels. Golfers needed a special club to extricate themselves from these wagon tracks, hence the invention of the small-headed track or rut iron. The head shows light even pitting throughout. The shaft has a newer finish, and there is 1/2" missing from the lower end of the russet grip. Good +.

    The hammer price for my Mantle card significantly exceeded my admittedly conservative estimations, and I couldn't be more pleased.
