Circa 1907 Gallwey Patent Roller Putter in Excellent Condition


The brainchild of Sir Ralph Payne Gallwey was once touted as the best general club ever designed, as nearly all shots could be made with it. The roller putter's cylinder head does just that, rolls along the ground striking the ball cleanly to limit wayward shots. The revolving head has a ball-bearing mechanism inside. It was marketed as not just a putter, but a multipurpose club that can run a ball up to the green, approach it or even play through it.

Gallwey himself was an interesting character. As legend goes, he once played golf against notable golfer of the day William Hunter - with an antique bow and arrow. He lost this time but has a philanthropic win with his PG golf ball line in which all of its profits went to charity. This club is in excellent condition as one of the finest examples still in existence and measures 36 1/2" from the top of the grip to the bottom of the heel.
