    Ted Knight "Judge Smails" "Billy Baroo" golf putter from Caddyshack. (Orion, 1980) Vintage original golf putter measuring 34 in. long with hickory wood shaft, metal putter head and leather-wrapped grip. Highly visible in the classic comedy when "Judge Smails" (Ted Knight) ceremoniously chooses this revered club for a "Hail Mary" putt. Knight pretentiously withdraws the club from a purple velvet sleeve, kisses it and talks to it before making his successful putt. The putter's head is engraved with, "White Heather, Made in Scotland, George Nicoll, Leven, Fife, Scotland". Very well documented, the putter comes with a notarized bill of sale and handwritten letter of provenance from Hughey O'Brien, a golfer playing at Rolling Hills Country Club in Davie, Florida (the shooting location), describing how he was asked by the film's producer, Doug Kenney (of National Lampoon fame), to bring a special putter for Ted Knight to use in the scene. Exhibiting production wear and age. The white tape above the grip was later replaced with black tape following the production. In vintage fine condition.
