Nothing is known of the background of the Freddy. The known examples were produced for A.L. Johnson & Co, so this model might have been exclusively made for their trade.. The lofts on two Freddys vary considerably with one club being 20 degrees and the other 28 degrees. Thouh the Freddy has many similarities to a Sammy, it is generally shorter with a deeper face. The Freddy also has less taper from toe to heel, giving it a very rectangular shape.
From the book on Thomas Stewart Jr, Golf Cleek and Iron maker, St. Andrews, Scotland by Ralph S. Livingstone III
