Jamie Anderson (1842-1905) was the first person Robert Forgan hired after taking over famed clubmaker Hugh Philp's business. He then left Forgan to work for Old Tom Morris before venturing out on his own. Anderson then vaulted to fame by winning the Open Championship three straight years - 1877, 1878, and 1879. Unfortunately, Jamie Anderson's story did not end well. He fell onto hard times, and was said to favor a drink above all else. He was back in Forgan's employ in the 1890s and then didn't work at all before he passed away.

The clubs that Jamie Anderson did produce, however, are exceptional. 

Offered here is a rare 26" long young club made by Jamie Anderson. The clubhead has some wear and worm hole damage, but the Anderson stamp is bold.
