With its beautiful mesh-scored face, this c. 1900 Robert Forgan & Son, St. Andrews, Putting cleek is from the historic Fred X Fry collection and bears his
label on the shaft. The 35" shaft and leather grip are original. Forgan is one of the great St. Andrews clubmakers of the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Fred X Fry, the dean of American
collectors, was busy building his
collection forty years before the Golf Collectors Society (now The Golf
Heritage Society) was formed in 1970. Collecting with
great passion, Fry amassed approximately 450 clubs, mostly putters. He
cataloged, displayed, and cherished his treasures. A number of national
magazines ran articles about his collection of putters between 1936 and
1963. For more on Fry and to view some of the articles, Click Here.
