I would like to see the dings too. That putter always looks very clean and unmarred in the close up shots on TV.

 

I am going to build one of these out of masking tape and tongue depressors. Maybe cardboard and duct tape.

Any Pics of tigers putter being dinged up?

 

These are from last season. It might have teeth marks and an impression or two from a certain Cadillac on it this year:

The putter has been sent back to the Cameron Spa 2 times already. Don T. Cameron (Scotty) makes him 2-4 every year as back-ups and they never make the bag. Old habits are hard to break I suppose. The face is pretty bad, but I can't find the pic of it right now.

Have a ton of back-ups in all categories, but there are always 14 clubs in the bag that differ depending on the course and set-up. Bomb and gouge. Yes, I'm a club gigolo.

I love how Nike pays him a fortune but when it comes down to the last putt of the tournament and they do a close up of the putt from behind everyone see "Titleist" and not Nike, how much do you think they've thrown at him to change.

Ah simple is always the best, looks easy enough to make. I do wonder why the design is so short though, if it were longer it might force a more straighter stroke, or am I missing something?

Maybe this accommodates an arc or sbst stroke. Too long and you are only going to clear the gates with a SBST.

I am going to swing by the plastic manufacturing place on the way home (Tap Plastics). Hoping I can get a foot or so of 2" on a side 90*. I'll post pictures if successful...

You should be able to pick that up at Lowe's or Home Depot as well. 90* angle plastic is used a lot for home construction and drywall.

Thanks for the suggestion. Nothing like a little DIY project in the 104* heat.

So finally got to the DIY

1 corner guard plastic piece ($7.95)

1 roll yellow tape ($3.95)

4 yellow tees

Drill

hack saw

sandpaper

 

Cut the plastic into 6" (or so) pieces with the saw. Removed rough edges with the sandpaper.

Marked and drilled the holes for the tees to hold them down.

Was going to paint the top edge yellow with a paint pen, but I really don't want paint to get on my putter.

Saw the roll of yellow tape and it worked perfectly.

 

Took it to the practice green and I think that if I keep using it, it will really help me to groove in a consistent, squared putting stroke.

YMMV, but for a small investment, it seems worth a try...

6 inches is too long. Science has shown that there is a section of 2 inches before and after impact where the putter head is moving in a straight path. These should be 4 inches long.

OK

IS this for a SBST stroke with a face balanced mallet too or arc stroking blade?

Where is the "science" article? I'd like to read these things before my next DIY goes awry. :P

That's what Scotty says his researchers came up with. I'm sure there's an article that goes with it, but it probably costs $200 from his shop for the Circle T research. You can use it with any putting stroke, because at the end of the day, no matter what kind of stroke you use, you still have that section of your stroke that's straight. You can't draw or fade a putter. It'll roll end over end no matter what type of stroke you use, gravity, grain, and contours are the only thing that'll effect it rolling end over end, not the stroke.

What the heck tried making a set of my own and it works great. $200 bills on ebay what a joke, I bought $5 bux worth of channel and there's enough to make 4 sets...

Hey Sactown, where did you get the materials for yours?

TAP Plastics here in town. Home Depot probably has the same stuff. It was sold as a corner guard for interior walls.

I could I suppose. I'd like to check and see if Scotty has a patent on this particular design and see how I might need to alter it so as not to infringe. I could always get the MGS logo made into a handstamp from a vendor I work with occasionally and stamp the MGS logo onto them.

 

My next project, whenever the metal comes in, are Damascus steel divot tools. I've ordered some metal and am just waiting on it to come in to start trying to make that creation.

 

First off RB7, you do some incredible work- this and the headcover blow me away. I can't wait to see the divot tool!

 

Second, that's what you can do when you put a name on something... gouge people. Most people (myself included) don't have that kind of skill; they know that, as well. Where a "no name" company could sell one for $20-$30, SC sells it for $44 because it says Cameron, so it has to be better.

 

I need to add that I'm also eager to see what your putter tool looks like with an MGS logo on it. Geezus, the MGS Store sounds like it has the potential to have a ton of kick-@ss stuff!
