Antique Charles Hunter Short Spoon Circa 1880
This is a Charlie Hunter Short Spoon. The head is 4 in long.it is 1 1/8 inch deep. Curved face Heel to Toe. Quite lofted face.Brass sole plate with Horn underneath. Fine Scare Joint, original whipping. Part original grip with cloth underlisting. Shaft is not stamped. Previous owners initials MH stamped to head. Shaft length 41 in. While this club has a heavy Brass sole plate extending up towards the shaft I think one of the reasons for this is Charlie Hunter was at Blackheath Golf Club for a couple of years ( 1866/1868)and the ground around there was very stony (gravel) brass sole plated were first used here to protect the clubs, I should think he brought the idea back to Prestwick.
