It says Stewart Maiden Special and Forged in Scotland. My dad claims these were his grandfathers clubs. Googling didnt turn up much information but I'm hoping these arent a newer recreation. Any info is appreciated! Thanks!

    These are original clubs. They were made by Tom Stewart of St. Andrews, possibly the most famous and desirable of Scottish makers for clubs of the early 1900's. Stewart made clubs for Vardon, Ray, Ouimet, Jones, and many of the most accomplished players of the day. This club stamped "L" indicates a ladies iron. That really only means the head is likely a bit lighter and the shaft is slightly shorter with more flex. What's interesting is that the club is stamped for Stewart Maiden. Maiden was the club pro at East Lake when Bobby Jones was a kid. If you've seen the movie "Bobby Jones, A Stroke of Genius", Maiden is the Scottish pro who sort of takes young Bobby under his wing. While Jones claims to never have had a lesson, Maiden is widely regarded as the model for Jones' swing. As a child he worked to emulate Maiden's movement, and Jones often admitted to imitating his Carnoustie style.



    A very nice family heirloom.

    Great to see such a thing on the internet and to know it exists. Thanks for showing.

    If this doesn't inspire you to get yourself a set of Stewarts to play,..what will, I ask?
    Vintage various.
