1903 Schenectady Putter

First used at the 1904 British Amateur Championship, the Schenectady putter was a controversial club when introduced, before the USGA and R&A could finally agree that the center shafted putter was necessary for the progression of the game. Patented in 1903 by Arthur Knight of Schenectady, New York, the putter was made to improve Knight's short game. Walter Travis used a Schenectady Putter and became the first American to win the British Amateur defeating Edward Blackwell.

This example is in excellent condition, with exceptionally bold and clear stampings, as shown in the accompanying photos. The bottom is stamped Harry C. Lee. 34"
