In 1966, Karsten Solheim received an unsolicited letter from Mark McCormack of IMG, who represented Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player. A deal was worked out to sell PING putters with the Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player names overseas. [And The Putter Went...PING (2017) by Jeffery B. Ellis].

For Gary Player putters, Player would have exclusive rights to distribute PING putters in the Republic of South Africa, Phodesia, Zambia, and Nyasaland. He would receive completed putters, and he was required to order 600 per year.

The offered putter is a seldom seen Scottsdale address Gary Player 1A.
