Thanks for the compliment.. it has a matt satin finish and looks hardly used. It makes me wonder whether it is original as all of the refinished Gold putters I have seen have been highly polished.

Those are still pretty cool putters.  Amazing how the grip is still in play able condition.  They are normally the first to go!!

it doesnt look gamed... im  guessing someone bought a blade but ended up putting with a ping anser or something with a cavity.. i remember there being a transition from blades with leather wrapped grips to tpm spalding and ping ansers and other type of putters.. either way yours look like it has very little use ? Jay when do u think this putter was released ? :)

I think the putter is late 80's.. it's 35 inches.. a little long for me to play with. The grip is still playable although obviously a little slick by now. It would be a shame to remove the grip as it might not survive so at the moment I'm thinking I might pull the shaft and source a new shaft and grip, keeping the original.
