This is an extremely rare pre-1900 set of Willie Park clubs. The rut iron could in fact be a Willie Park Senior Rut.

Description of each club:

Long Nose Driver: This is the only Willie Park long Nose Driver I have ever seen where the entire head of the club is made from horn not wood. The discovery was noted by Randy Jensen, whom most hickory players and collectors are familiar with. The only downside to this club is that it has been broken in the neck joint. The horn was not as flexible as it's wood counterparts and therefore more apt to break. The break cannot be seen in any photos as it is under the whipping.

Willie Park Patented Cleek: This Willie Park cleek may be a prototype. Even though the patent # is identical to the well known Willie Park Patented Cleek, the shape of the club is totally different. The well known patented Cleek has a typical silhouette of a pre-1900 golf iron but it has a rounded back. This patented cleek has a flat back but is considerably longer heel to toe and is shaped like a crescent. All original...good shaft...straight...original grip.

Willie Park Patented Mashie: I have never seen another example of the Willie Park Patented Mashie, the only reason I am aware of it beyond owning one is that Jeff Ellis mentions the club in his famous book. The head is shorter heel to toe than the typical Mashie and the back is slightly rounded. Shaft appears to be original...straight...no cracks...very old grip but not sure if original.

Willie Park Patented Lofter: Semi-Rare but not as rare as the preceding clubs. This is an amazing example of the patented Lofter and the stamps are about as good as you can find. Original shaft...straight and strong...original grip.

Willie Park Rut Iron: This is an unbelievable example of a very small headed very early Wm Park rut iron. The face is about the size of a golf ball. This rut very well could be a Willie Park Senior Rut iron. So small in the head...wild markings on the hosel...straight and strong shaft...old shaft but grip has been replaced.
