Offered here is a circa 1924 Tyler Patent combination wood. According to The Clubmaker's Art, Tyler's intent in making his woods was to mimic the way irons were weighted so that his woods could play as easily as irons. The club was advertised as "guaranteed the straightest and longest driving club in the world." Overall excellent condition with some marks and wear.  

This club originates from the famed Jeff Ellis Collection, and this exact club was featured in his books The Clubmaker's Art (TCA 1, p. 297; TCA 2, p. 357). This club has not reached the collector market since its sale at the 2007 Sotheby's auction of the Jeff Ellis Collection.
