Covered under Edwin McClain’s December 1928 US patent, this Hagen sand wedge has a dramatically curved face and a large, broad sole. Bobby Jones even used one of these in the 1930 British Open. In 1931 the USGA adopted a new regulation that made any club with a concave face non-conforming. Consequently, Hagen stopped producing its concave sand wedge.
This example, complete with its 34" shaft and original leather-wrapped grip, appears to be nearly unused. All the chrome is still shining like it did 90 some years ago. A beautiful example of this always popular collectible.
