Bernard Darwin ShotToday we have many choices of clubs for our fairway shots. But in Darwin’s day, in this case 1912, they really depended on the spoon (3 wood), the cleek (long iron), and the mashie (short iron). This included trouble shots, like difficult downhill lies.

Charles Darwin was the genius that advanced the idea of “the origin of the species” fromold bunker at prestwick which much of our study of evolution has evolved.
