This is the putter made and used in Scotland between 1900 and 1920. Each unique putter has been played on Scotland's bucolic greens and bears various nicks and scratches from years of use--including par-saving putts--that give each putter individual character. The shaft is made from hickory, the original wood used prior to the advent of the steel shaft in 1925. Each putter is restored using original techniques and materials, such as the white linen thread pulled through tar used for whipping--the string used for fastening the sheep or cow leather grips to the shaft. The heads are made from either steel or aluminum. The putter comes in a plaid cotton sheath with its provenance and certificate of authenticity, including model details such as the maker's cleek marks, model series, and face type. All putters are right-handed, and some hosels are wry-neck (bent) and some are straight. Faces will vary and lengths will range between 35-37".
