Marked "Willie Park's Original Bent Neck Putter" on the back of the blade, this club has the offset blade design that Willie Park Jr introduced in 1892. Park's off-set putter gained such popularity after it was introduced, that George Nicol, the clubmaker at Leven, Scotland, is who actually produced this putter early in the 20th century. Hence the club is identified as "Wiilie Park's..." Bending the neck to off-set the blade proved to be one of the most embraced designs in the world of putters.

The 36" shaft appears to be original as does the sheepskin grip.  There is pitting on the front and back of the toe. The club is quite visual with its dramatic offset blade., which was a big change back in the day.
