Bettinardi 44 Magnum BB1 Left Hand Tour Exempt Prototype.
This is the prototype made prior to the production of the 13, BB1 .44 Magnum Left Hand. Reports suggest there were only 5 protoypes made.
Only13 were eventually made in total of the .44 Magnums in lefthanded with a plumber neck. Mr. Bettinardi loved the look of a BB1 head with copper plugs so he decided to make the .44 Magnums for his 44th Birthday and made these rare few for the loyal left hand collectors.
The Prototype has "DASS" "Bettinardi" "Tour Exempt" stamped on the base. Whereas the production run of Left Hand BB1 has the '44 Magnum Gun' Logo engraving.
This Tour Exempt model is extremely rare and will be a valuable addition to any collection.
This putter is in mint condition and has never been used. The grip still has the original shrink wrap on.
