Golf club sells for £89,000

One of Scotland's oldest golf clubs which dates back to the 18th century has been sold for £89,577 at an auction in New York.

The ash long-nosed putter, stamped with the initials "AD", is believed to be the work of celebrated Leith golf club maker Andrew Dickson.

He became the world's first named caddie when he carried the Duke of York's clubs on Leith Links in 1681, and went on to become a clubmaker in the port.
