Taking the plunge !!!!
« on: September 04, 2013, 08:49:43 PM »
After reading the 8802 guide on the site and several other posts I am taking the plunge, finally after making some people crazy with asking questions I found a original 1964 8802, I feel like a kid at Christmas , as I stated in my introduction I played Wilson equipment when I was young, so it is good to get back to my roots. I still have my first complete set of irons they are Wilson Arnold Palmer autograph so it will be nice to add a putter to the set when I'm not gaming it, as soon as it arrives I will post pictures, thanks to all who have posted information on what to look for.

Thank you, I feel very lucky to have found this one, not in perfect shape but I don't care I wanted it to play and display not to resale.

Not so much that style I just know the excitement of new putters. I'm a mostly scotty Cameron guy for my gamers and I like Nead putters and Bettinardi for show.
