They're almost the stuff of legend now. Bullseye Putters are not a brand but a design.
There are some variations of the classic design, but the hallmarks are a minimalist curved design with a center shaft, made usually out of brass. Although the history is not entirely clear, most people believe that the classic Bullseye shape started with the 1946 John Letters Golden Goose putter.
It's supreme touch meant that most of the top players of the 1940s and 50s used Bullseye. Jack Nicklaus used one to claim many of his early Major victories and since then Nick Faldo, Greg Norman, Corey Pavin, Tom Kite and Mark McNulty have been amongst the most famous golfers to use a Bullseye design.
The retro craze has brought Bullseye Putters back into the limelight. Several of the major golf manufacturers have produced a model.

Scotty Cameron American Classic 3
A simply gorgeous reworking of the Bullseye shape. New materials and great Scotty Cameron workmanship make this a beautiful putter to look at. Still not that forgiving, though!
Scotty Cameron Bullseye Platinum Heavy Flange
A Bullseye putter worthy of consideration! The offset neck and flange aren't quite what you'd want if you're a purist looking for a bullseye, but it putts better.

Titleist Bullseye Flange
An extremely pretty putter. A favourite with some of the world's greats 50 years ago and excellent on fast greens. Unforgiving when compared with modern putters
