We have all seen the carved Duck heads on old golf clubs. Well, why not caricature heads on them too? The 1st guy has stuck out his tongue about his last score card, the 2nd seems to be seriously contemplating the game, The 3rd old geezer , well what can I say, he’s played the game too long to care about his scores.
As many know I am working in Russia right now and golf isn’t popular enough to find even new stuff. So my friend Brian scrounged up to send me. These are the first of many I will be carving from Russian Lepa wood. Paints are Acrylic.

I always look forward to seeing your next project Doug! For a guy with a travailing workshop you sure do some really nice work. They all look great favorite would be the head with the pipe!

Great work Doug. Now I know a better use for my clubs! They all look great, but I like the guy with the pipe best too. Maybe because we don’t see many using pipes these days. Hows the weather there?

There’s just no end to your talents Doug…..well done. I thought my idea of making coat rack with irons was a good idea but yours is so much better….hope you have a warm office! Russia can be very cold.

Thanks to everyone. The idea hit me and with Brian’s help I got the “woods” . Lepa, or as we call it Basswood is available here and very good to carve. It is what the popular Matryohska dolls are made from.

This is a very creative use for all the old clubs. Nice work.
