David Cobb scareneck driver|
D C Cobb
, Montrose / Greenock
David Cobb was an accomplished player, winning the big assistants' competition at his home course of Montrose in 1904, and a fine clubmaker after moving to take up the professional's post at Greenock.
This small-headed persimmon driver, with a very thin elegant splice joining head to shaft, is a good example of his work and in fine original condition.. The crown is clearly stamped "D C Cobb". The head is protected by a traditional ram's horn slip secured by three hickory dowels. Quite a lightweight head, it has the original lead backweight, tidily fitted.
The hickory shaft is straight and topped with what is probably the original sheepskin grip. A well made and eye-catching club.
