The Ping 1A putter is the model that started it all for the Karsten Solheim and the PING golf company.  When this putter strikes a ball, an unmistakable "Piiinnnngggg" rings out across the land and everybody on the golf course knows somebody is using a 1A putter!  While this putter works great, the sound it makes gave birth to the name of the company—and the rest is history. Today, the club remains Iconic.

Offered here is a Ping 1A putter made in Karsten's Garage near Scottsdale, Arizona, in the early 1960s.  The club has its original black Golf Pride Informer grip complete with its original black grip colar. The original shaft is 35" long and the original black shaft band is worn, but much of it remains, which is great!  Most of the time the band has left and gone out back somewhere.....sorry.... but its true!;)

If you are looking for a great early ping scottsdale 1A putter that goes ping, this one is a great example!  Just don't practice at night outside on your lawn or you will wake the neighbors!

This putter is bottom right in the group image that accompanies this lot.
