Antique Vintage Travis Wooden Schenectady Putter Hickory Wood Shaft Golf Club For Sale
A hickory wooden shafted Travis style wooden head mallet
putter. The sole plate is clearly
stamped, “WT” which stands for ‘Walter Travis’ model. Walter Travis won both the U.S.
and British Amateur Championship and he designed clubs for both Spalding and Wright
& Ditson. This looks like a Spalding
or Slazenger made putter to me. There
are crown stampings inside an oval, but the thickness and cracking of the
original varnish doesn’t allow me to make out the mark. You can see that the letters are all there,
but simply most are obscured. Any way, this
putter speaks for itself. It is
definitely a beautifully made Walter Travis model putter with full brass face
and sole plates. Beautiful dark honey colored patina to all the brass. Putter
shows a few light face nicks, nothing remotely bad. Sole is near nick free. This beautiful old golf club has a wooden
shaft that is almost certainly original and is without chips or cracks. No cracks to club head, neck, or shaft. Lead back
weight does have a very nice dark patina.
Quite a heavy putter. Club has a
nice intact perforated leather wrap grip that is most likely a replacement from
the 1930’s or 40’s. Intact grip
whippings and the leather is not dried out.
Solid, playable putter. Very hard
to find, especially in this condition.
35 1/8 inches in total club length. Stunning putter. Please see my other wood shafted and vintage
collectible golf clubs. Some are quite rare. All without reserve. THANKS!
