Forward face putters are few and far between. A few different people tried making them, as there are around a half dozen different models known (five other projecting face putters are found in TCA2 v2 p548-551) but forward face putters were never popular for obvious reasons.
Today, few collections have an example of such a club.
Marked "The Trublo" on its crown, this solid aluminum putter head has a dramatic forward face. The club is stylish and in fabulous original condition, with its original 34" shaft and grip. The sole is stamped "Made in England." This putter and the other wood mallet forward face putter in this auction make for great companion pieces. As the auctioneer sees it, if somebody were to win both clubs in this auction, the chances are well beyond 99% that their collection would be the only one in the world with examples of both of these clubs.
The forward face putter offered as lot 14 in this auction is shown for perspective in one of the images included with this lot. Again, it is not part of this lot.
