Two putters personally used by Bobby Locke.
“I am pleased that you like the putters,during the 1960's
and 70's I was the pro at the East Berks Golf Club. Bobby
Locke spent the summers nearby and played the course
regularly between events. He would play with anybody
from scratch to 28 handicap. I often played with him. He
was always adding to his collection of putters that could
be used as a replacement for his famous rusty model.
These were two of those that he gave to his constant
playing companion who passed them on to me. I don't
think that he used them in tournament play but he
certainly played with them at East Berks.
The last time I played with him I enquired how many
events he had won but he didn't know, however he said
that he had won the Open Championship of 19 countries
In my view he must be considered one of the greatest
golfers of all time.”
