Described as "the most refined adjustable iron made during the wood shaft era." (The Clubmaker's Art, p. 457). This adjustable "Novakclub" was designed by a Catholic priest named Alphonsus Gavin. The Novakclubs were first produced around 1926, and only early examples were produced with a wood shaft. Even by 1927 Gavin was already advertising the metal shaft version instead.
This is an early Novakclub, which we know due to the face that it is wood shafted. Excellent stamping on the head. This rare club is in very good condition.
