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 inventory 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 golf club 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.
