Want a blade putter, but made with a wood face/head, a three peg horn on the sole, and a splice neck?  Want to make it really heavy by attaching a slab of lead to the back? Want to use a brass plate with 5 screws to hold the lead in place and protect it from getting dented and dinged?  Who doesn't!  This is the club!!

Stamped "DW Patrick, Wimbledon" on the shaft, this club dates between 1891 and 1896, which is when Patrick worked as the professional at Royal Wimbledon.  The 36 1/4" shaft is original and has its original whipping. The white sueded leather grip is a replacement but works well with the club and its presentation. 

Don't sell this club short.  It's an early and creative putter design, and the club has surprising substance when held in hand. And it is really heavy. Really!
