Forgan's Maxmo putter was first offered in 1928 and built for
"Maximum-Momentum"! It was designed to redirect a ball mis-hit on
either the toe or heel back towards the hole—and to give the otherwise
mis-hit (and therefore) weak putt more momentum than it would otherwise
have had. To accomplish these things, the clubface has a concave curve
heel to toe and there are lead weights under the brass plate on the heel
and toe of the sole.
In theory, a ball struck on the toe of a RH
putter would be redirected a touch to the left to correct for what would
normally be a miss to the right of the hole. The lead weight under the
toe would add back the distance lost with such a mis-hit. Again, that
was the theory. For more on the Maxmo putter, see TCA2 v1 p303
Nice club with a 34 1/2" shaft and original leather wrap grip.
