Rob Birman, of the NW Hickory Players, has published a lovely and fascinating article entitled A Brush With History, recounting his recent visit to an undisclosed golf collector’s home for a tour of golfing goodies from across centuries past. If you’re the type who gets excited hearing about (and seeing!) Willie Park’s original line cutting machine for gutty balls (below), this is a necessary read.
