McEwan was to Edinburgh club making what Philp was to St Andrews. The company was established in 1770 by James McEwan and then passed down from father to son for four generations up to its demise in 1895. The family specialised in long-nose clubs, or long-headed clubs. Golfers of the day would carry three, four, or five of them, one being the putter. This Playclub is an example of the original which belonged to Alan Robertson who was the first man to break 80 for a round of 18 holes of golf. The original of this club which Robertson used during his record round of 79 over the Old Course 15th September 1858, now resides at the Royal and Ancient golf club of St Andrews.
This model is a right-handed club only.
