Tom Morris long nose approach putter circa 1875. Dark brown stain, oval lead back weight, three -owel horn sole, and impressed "T. Morris" block printed stamp on the head. The hickory shaft and neck whipping are old and appear to be original. The oversize leather wrap grip is an old replacement. The stain, which is old, appears to have been applied to cover a bare spot. Two small areas of whipping were added to the shaft, probably to cover a hairline crack. Tom Morris is one of the most famous figures in the history of the game of golf. He was a great player, club maker, ball maker, writer and proponent of the game. He also gave us his son, Tom Jr., the first child prodigy in golf. He made clubs for nearly 60 years, and his shop was on the 18th hole at St. Andrews. 1875. 5 1/8" from toe to heel; face 1"h; shaft 36 3/4". Good.
