O J Moir

I have a hickory 2 wood with the name O. J. Moir engraved on top.  He appears in the list of early Aussie pro's, but no info.  Anyone got any stories?
Cheers


Have a few clubs, mostly junk, but all playable.

Re: O J Moir

There were a couple of 'professional' names that appeared on clubs, and also appear to be fictitious. O.J. Moir was one of these, another was Robert McNab. The irons that they are on look like products of Slazengers.

I've had discussions in the past with Norm Richardson and Tom Moore about these 'gentlemen', and the consensus is that Slazengers may have used these Scottish sounding names to make their products sound more 'authentic'.

Re: O J Moir

I notice on the Lithgow Small Arms Factory Museum site that LSMAF made castings? for Slazenger golf club heads - possibly between WW1 and WW2.  Has anyone seen their display?  Maybe Mr Moir shows up in some of their records?
