    Description

    One piece driver manufactured by Slazenger. Patented in 1894 by J. Duncan Dunn, a member of the famous Dunn golfing family from the U.K. This unusual collectible was made from a single block of wood, eliminating the need for a joint or hosel between the head and shaft. While one piece golf clubs were made as early as the mid 19th century (according to Jeff Ellis in The Clubmaker's Art), Dunn was the first club maker to popularize the idea nearly a half century later. The head is stamped "Slazenger" on top. The sole is gutta percha or vulcanite; the face has the original leather insert; the shaft is hickory; the back weight is an oval lead and the grip is a leather wrap. A must for every patent club collection. The face shows heavy weathering and the grip is a later leather wrap replacement. Circa 1895. Poor to average.
