n. A loud middle-aged or elderly man usually found in pubs, betting shops, municipal golf courses, flea markets and bus rallies throughout the UK. The word 'putter' in this sense has origins in 'punter' and of course an old putter will 'putt around' - invariably getting in everone's way in the process.
Putters usually follow a traditional dress: Cap or trilby hat, golf attire, blazers, flasher-macs and unfashionable spectacles. They are very traditional in their views and despite their generally working class origins, they will vote Conservative.

Putters love to whistle- loudly. A putter's whistle is often tuneless and full of sentimental vibrato - usually some unmusical version of a wartime number.
Putters can be grumpy and very impatient with young people.

A Putter is a substance used to ward off the infamous "land trolls". It is comprised of butter and pepper. To make this substance you would put lots of pepper in some butter and mix it well; then grab a chunk and roll it into a ball. Then freeze it until it is rock hard. Then if a land troll comes along all you have to do is throw it at them and they will flee endlessly.
1. I had an encounter with a land troll, good thing I through some putter at it.
