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 an Outstanding 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 34 1/2" shaft has a Karsten-installed goose neck bend and much of its original black shaft band. The original Pro Only grip has its original black grip collar and even some of the original price label. There is a white collection label on the shaft.
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!
