J.M. Sunter (Elie) Pair of Late Scare-Neck persimmon woods. Driver & Brassie c.1925
Product ID: W020H

Details 

J.M. Sunter was the professional and club maker at Elie G.C. near to St. Andrews from 1922 to 1930 which means that these two woods must have been specially commissioned to be made by a player who still preferred this type of wood compared to socket head woods that were certainly the norm by the early 1920’s. Both woods have been beautifully restored to play condition or would make very nice display clubs. The makers name is clearly stamped to both heads.

The swing weights are original, C4 for the driver and C7 for the brassie. Swing weight was not important in the early 1900’s, in fact most players knew nothing about the subject, it was the feel of the club that was important to them. Both clubs measure 42.50” (108cm). The driver has 10° face loft and the brassie has 14° loft.
