Description

The most unusual feature of this club is invisible as it is under the whipping. The Slazenger patent covered a threaded socket and screw-in shaft. When located most Slazenger Screw Drivers still have their threaded shafts glued in place. This example, obviously, does not. Slazenger opened their first sporting goods store in London and sold clubs from other makers, although for a short time carried their own line of clubs. In 1889 Frank Slazenger opened a store on East 15th and moved to East 28th in New York. For more Slazenger clubs, see lots 66, 72, 217, 324, 364 and 545.
