Every winter I usually get a little stir crazy and buy some random golf club or old iron set on Ebay. I thought I got away clean this year, but now I kind of want a Ping 1A putter.

For those who don't know, the 1A was Karsten Solheim's first manufactured putter design and the namesake for the company. Yes, namesake:

It's a cool piece of history. The 1A was the first putter designed with engineering principles applied towards performance. Contemporary putters were little more than pieces of metal on the end of a stick with a flat side or two.

Karsten Solheim is better known for his later Anser design, but the 1A is the original. Plus it makes a cool sound.

That may be the coolest sounding putter ever made. Never loved the reverse offset but the sound was great.

Back in the 80’s/90’s I worked with a guy who had a 1A and I really should have bought one back then. And about three years ago I was playing at a local course and a guy there was putting with a 1A, he said he had a second one at home but neither was for sale. Some day I will have a pinging Ping putter.
