of course Singapore went to sleep and this was not telecast on our channels.



Ryder Cup Closing Ceremony

The Ryder Cup golf tournament has been officially handed over to Scotland.

First Minister Alex Salmond received the ceremonial silver putter which denotes Scotland taking over tournament preparations.

It was passed over at the 2012 closing ceremony at Medinah in Chicago, where Europe won after a record comeback.

The Ryder Cup, held at Gleneagles in 2014, is expected to inject £100m into the local and Scottish economy during the week of the tournament alone.

In a weekend of high drama in Chicago, Europe won eight of the 12 singles matches to stage a stunning comeback and beat the USA 14½-13½, retaining the Ryder Cup.

Alex Salmond received a ceremonial putter to mark the passing of the Ryder Cup venue. More than 250,000 spectators from around the world are expected to visit the Perthshire venue for the event.

The closing ceremony for this year's Ryder Cup in the US had a Scottish flavour to mark the return of the event to Scotland for the first time in about 40 years.






BBC News

anyone want to guess what ceremonial putter was used or see close up of that putter?

This silver putter handover is a pretty recent thing isn't it? Doesn't look like any common brand, I'd have to guess it's some olden day Scottish blacksmithy jobbie. scratch

100% silver?! Wow the Boccieri heavy putters have nothing on this one. The putter grip looks like it was purpose-made to mimic an old leather grip. Modelled on some famous player?

for those in the know...the step soul (or the cavity) is unmistakenly........

do you know the slightline is made up of 2 diamond....the hallmark is registered and only 58 putters will be available for any form of purchase.

but i doubt anyone in Singapore has the stomach to buy one of these.

As per Google

The sterling silver golf putter is a replica of a late 18th century putter and is made in the London workshops of Thomas Lyte. It is created from a single sheet of silver and weighs around 1.5kgs. It was hand-made by Thomas Lyte's Master Silversmith, Kevin Williams, who has more than 30 years experience of the making bespoke silver objects and presentation pieces.

Finally the ceremonial silver putter made for STAG (St Andrews Golf) by ZEN....

the flight box which carried the putter across the Atlantic




the drawing



the process of making the putter include a revolutionary 5 part cold forging process which compact and reduce the block of silver by 50%



most woman would love to bring this putter to functions



the Master craftsman Don Smith who made the cover and the grips for the final article.







the registered Assay Marks



and at last, The Final Article
