The center of the face—the small scored area—projects forward from the rest of the face, and is the only part of the face that is square to the golfer's line when putting.  Both the heel and the toe are angled away from the center of the face.  George Bennie received a British patent for the Bennie No. 2 putter in 1928.

The  grip and shaft and head are all original.  The two strong grooves in the top of the head are original and aid the golfers alignment.  Overall, this is a very distinct putter in outstanding condition.

This club is shown to the far right in top row in the accompanying group picture.  For a different Bennie No. 2 model, see TCA2 v2 p 549.
