Offered here is one of the Crown Jewels of the classic golf club market - a rare circa 1959 Ping Redwood City "No Model" putter. The legend has been told countless times - in his spare time, Karsten Solheim began making putters in his garage in Redwood City, California in 1959. Then in 1960, Karsten moved to Scottsdale, Arizona and focused his attention on being a clubmaker. Soon thereafter, the PING golf company was born.
The "No Model" putter was very similar to, and predates, the eventual 1A putter. This is the very putter that makes the loud "ping" sound - where the PING company got its name. You can see the original shaft bend that Karsten himself famously bent into these rare early handmade putters. Very good condition.
