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!
