The Wilson brand isn't at the top of too many people's shopping lists at the moment, but this wasn't always the case. In the 2nd half of the 20th Century, Wilson was one of the biggest names in golf, and putters were one of their strengths. Between the 1950s and the 1980s they were in the place that Scotty Cameron, Ping and Odyssey are in now - at the top table of the best putter manufacturers in the world.

The Classic Wilson putter - the 8802 blade

Wilson's all-time best-selling putter is the classic blade putter the 8802. The simple, elegant design and amazing feedback led this to be a world beater, which is still favored by some traditionalists today. 

But, with the advance of putter technology, this putter is being overtaken in the blade market by models which offer bigger sweetspots through heel and toe weighting and by the anser and mallet putter styles, both of which are more forgiving and offer more consistent results.

The Wilson 8802 still offers unparalleled touch on fast greens though, so if you're a low-handicap player who can strike the ball out of the center of the putter face every time, then you really might fall in love with an 8802. 

It's also the closest thing you'll find to Ben Crenshaw's lifelong putter choice, and as we saw throughout his career, Crenshaw was by no means lacking for success on the putting green due to his old-fashioned choice of equipment!

Did you know?

During the 1980s and early 1990s Wilson's sponsorship of Nick Faldo led to the company buying the rights to market the TPA range of putters that Faldo was then using. The distinctive black and gray headed designs were originally sold by TaylorMade.
