This brass F&S mold is actually two molds in one.  One side will make a high tee and the other will make a low tee. "F&S"is stamped on the base of the tall tee.  It's believed that the two letter title of this sand tee references the old golf adage to hit the ball "Far & Sure."

Golfers used sand to elevate/tee up their ball for centuries.  Molds that would pick up the sand and allow it to be set in place with ease and consistency were in use by 1890. These sand tee molds took a variety of shapes and designs over the next few decades, one of the simplest being the F&S sand tee mold offered here.
