Jack White, a renown British professional during the early 20th century, devised this putter with holes in its face in an effort to lessen the distance imparted to the ball when struck by this putter. White had good success with his putter and dubbed it a "Holey Terror" in one 1914 account. 

The back of this head is stamped "Jack White, Made in Scotland, Warranted Hand Forged" and bears Wiliam Gibson's star cleekmark, Gibson being the cleekmaker who forged the head. 

This club has its original shaft and leather-wrapped grip.  Another highly creative club in wonderful condition.
