This beautiful sterling silver putter head is stamped "sterling" along its neck and with the "Walter Hagen" signature and "putter" on the back. It also bears the "Lambert Bros Jewelers New York" logo stamp. All stamping is still deep and clear. This full-size club is complete with a sterling silver grip end-cap.
The December 1925 issue of "Golf Illustrated" describes it as "the exact replica of the putter used by Walter Hagen in four open championships. Head and cap of sterling silver, shaft of selected wood. Suitable gift inscription can be engraved on back of the club." Many of these clubs were presented as prizes at tournaments. This
particular one has no additional engraving on it, to indicate any winner
or specific tournament.
As these clubs were also made for play, this one does show light use. Even so, it remains in wonderful original condition and when put on display will shine bright for all to admire!
The hickory shaft, leather wrap grip, and sterling silver grip car are all original.
