Cleek

By

Definition: Among historical (wooden-shafted, pre-20th Century) golf clubs, the cleek was an iron with a very narrow face and little loft most commonly associated with today's 1-irons. Cleeks came in variations, too. There was the "wooden cleek," a club also of little loft but with a wooden head (historically equivalent to a 4-wood). There was the "putting cleek," which, you guessed it, was used for putting.
