Antique Golf Clubs from Scotland
Clubmakers
Albert Tingey Snr
St Andrews/Brancaster
Born in Newmarket, Cambridgeshire in 1869, he, according to his great grandson 'left home to play golf' and learned his clubmaking from Tom Morris in St Andrews. If Hugh Philp was the king of putter making, this was the crown prince of the next generation. Old Tom's customers looking for a putter would often ask that it be made only by Tingey.

Despite this impeccable pedigree he had the temerity to play for England, against Scotland no less, on three occasions. He was pro at Royal West Norfolk in Brancaster from 1892 until 1899 and then served West Hertfordshire until 1921. A spell in France followed, at the Paris Golf School and at Fontainbleu but, with the onset of war, he returned to England with positions at Frinton on Sea and The Naze.
