Apollo to the Moon

Apollo 14

Golf Club Head

Golf Club, Apollo 14, Replica

Just before departure from the Moon on Apollo 14 mission, Alan B. Shepard drove a golf ball on the lunar surface. The golf club was a contingency sample extension handle with a No. 6 iron golf club head attached. The one- sixth gravity on the Moon compensated for the difficulty Shepard had making a good swing in his bulky space suit and back pack.

Lunar golf club made by golf professional Jack Harden. Replica of golf club head, gift of Alan B. Shepard Jr.
