A highly collectable wooden head mallet style patent putter in original condition. This putter remains in play condition but would probably be best suited as a fine display item. The length is 34.75” (88cm).

William Burke became one of the largest producers of clubs during the hickory era. He began manufacturing clubs in 1910 in Newark, Ohio which had already gained a reputation as a main centre for club production. The name BURKE is stamped to the persimmon head within the light stained stripe band with the model name END GRAIN shown below. The patent number 785212 is stamped between. The wood grain runs perpendicular to the striking face compared to the neck being straight grained and held in place by a screw.

The sole insert is made from black fibre held in place by three wooden plugs. The large lead back weight is securely in position.

The head measurements are:

4” (10cm) from toe to heel through the centre of the face.

2” (5cm) wide across the crown.

Nearly 1.25” (3cm) deep face including the sole insert.

The shaft is straight with the original leather grip remaining tightly bound.

Burke Golf Company.

William Burke became one of the largest producers of clubs during the hickory era. He began manufacturing clubs in 1910 in Newark, Ohio which had already gained a reputation as a main centre for club production. He had previously managed the club making department at MacGregor’s for 14 years so had gained invaluable knowledge and was also said to have spent a number of years in the hickory lumber business.

His club making business grew at pace as he tried to cater for all levels, supplying clubs to professional players such as Jock Hutchinson, Harry Vardon, Ted Ray and the great Walter Hagen as well as producing numerous models at competitive prices for the mass market. By 1915 his sales turnover was number three in the USA behind Spalding and MacGregor. Burke himself left the company in 1925 to start another club making business in Ohio. He died in 1929. The original business continued until the early 1960’s.
