Bobby Jones began putting with his original Calamity Jane after a friendly round at the Nassau CC on Long Island before competing in the 1923 U.S. Open.
The brother of Stewart Maiden (Jones’ teacher) heard Jones complain about his putting, and handed him a putter he had named for the famous female sharpshooter from the Old West. Jones holed a 30-foot putt on his first try and kept the putter in his bag to win the U.S. Open days later.
Being an explosive personality, Jones’ CJ putter almost split several times. He applied three whipping applications around the Hickory shaft to firm it up. Our CJ Model replica is exact, including the three whipping points.
