The Gillespie Pendulum Putter w/ Flat Shaft


The Gillespie Pendulum Putter is made of wood and brass and is center shafted. Henry Longhurst in the September 30th issue of 1965 'Golf Illustrated' spoke at length about the unique putter. "...the best to my mind was that of a M. Gillespie of Dublin, which having been specifically ruled legal, was suddenly banned, much I believe , to his advantage, since he had insured against this. You bent down with your two thumbs level on the front of the handle and swung the putter, pendulum-fashion, between the legs. The inventor held that his was the only position which with the human body could provide a true pendulum action and I suspect that he is right. The club, if such it may be called could be devastatingly accurate and I believe that Harry Bradshaw became so good with it that he might have won anything if he had had the nerve to appear with it in public." "The Gillespie Pendulum Putter" "World Patents Pending" are shaft stamps. 25 1/2" from the top of the grip to the bottom of the heel.
