Andrew Herd Scott was both a fine golfer and clubmaker! His
Unbreakable Neck brassie like the one offered here was patented in 1895,
with Scott describing the unique joint as such: "The shaft, which
tapers towards one end, is formed square of rectangular in cross section
at that part and enters a correspondingly shaped recess in the neck and
head of the club, the said shaft passing right through same to the
sole...By this means a joint is made that is practically unbreakable,
while it also gives more spring to the head and consequently greater
power to the stroke, thereby enabling a ball to be driven further than
with an ordinary club..."
The original 41 1/2" shaft is stamped and still has its original sheepskin grip. Club is in excellent condition as shown in photos.
