in early 1967, Karsten entered into a contract with Gary Player Enterprises that would allow Player's company to sell Ping putters marked with Gary's name. This relationship lasted for a relatively short period of time. Today, the remaining Ping Gary Player putters are hard to come by. For more on information about Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus Ping putters, see And the Putter Went Ping pages 93-94.
This Gary Player Ping putter offered here is a Karsten Co. "Dalehead" Anser with its original 35 1/2" shaft that measures 7 3/4" to the first step. The grip is trashed, however, so the club needs to be regripped. There appears to be a little bit of silver something on the back of the flange. The auctioneer does not know if it is paint or what. The overall head shows normal wear. With a proper grip installed, this club would present much better.
