A little golf club history…
There is little knowledge about the design of golf clubs during the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries and clubs from these era's are extremely hard to find. Most will already be in private collections or museums. During the latter part of the 1700's rough iron headed clubs started to be produced by Blacksmiths.
Wooden headed putters were still being produced up to the end of the 19th century but with irons having substituted various woods. It was only a matter of time before putters would also start to be made with metal heads. These types of putters began to enter the scene after 1900 and in a few years there were many designs to choose from, not unlike today.
