The Spalding TPM6 putter was passed to Reagan by William Martin, a special assistant to the President, after a putting matt had been rolled out on Air Force One on a flight to the 1985 Geneva Summit where Reagan was due to meet Mikhail Gorbachev face-to-face for the first time.

An impromptu putting competion commenced at 30,000 feet that was dubbed 'The Trust but Verify' Opem.

The putter is to be auctioned with a letter of provenance from Robert McFarlane, President Reagan's National Security Advisor, who was present on Air Force One at the time.
