Faldo presents Thomas Lyte putter to Valhalla
Walt Gahm, Nick Faldo and Richard Hills, The European Ryder Cup Director are pictured on the final day of The 2008 Ryder Cup in front of the statue of Jack Nicklaus and Dwight Gahm, whose dream to host a world class event at the club he founded began in 1980, which was unveiled at the start of the week.
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.
The putter was commissioned by Ryder Cup Europe and is totally unique. Attached to the shaft of the putter are 14 balls with engraved names of the Captain, Vice-Captain and the players of The 2008 European Ryder Cup Team and it is presented in a bespoke fitted case.
