    Description

    Unsigned smooth face rut or track iron. Small oval head, thick hosel, deep nicking, stamped "W. Park" 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 has good patina. The stamped shaft may be an old replacement and the grip is a modern russet. Circa 1880. Good +.
