This was in progress of paintfill, so the "Titleist" is smudgy, but it's a great pic that captures the highlights in the finish:

With all of these golfsmith stores closing all over the nation, if you can find one that has some used higher end putters, you're going to get a great deal. I picked up this circa 62 for under $80.

 

This was a super quick sandblast, and torch job. I'm not ready to paint it, bc I think I might start over and hand sand it to get it in as pretty shape as possible.

So I have been wanting to do a little bit of "hand hammering" on a putter for a while, and I decided to go for a high polished torched blue with a hand hammered top line, neck and bumpers on this C62. I think all turned out great, but the corrosion all over the head has caused deep pitting over the entirety of the putter. It's the only thing that's keeping me from loving this putter.

I think I'm going to have to settle for the dull sandblasted look because it roughs the surface up enough to mask the pitting

Also, a buddy got screwed and paid $169 for a "Monopoly money" (counterfeit) Monterrey earlier this week. He gave it to me and said, "go nuts".

 

Here was the outcome. IMG_1478497781.389065.jpgIMG_1478497810.833697.jpg IMG_1478497825.131847.jpgIMG_1478497837.596344.jpgIMG_1478497849.817479.jpg

And then there's the authentic Monterrey that I torched over the weekend. I read the article on Tyson Lamb here last week and started checking his work out - what a freaking dream that would be, to design and mill putters full time.

 

Anyway, many of his putters that I saw (which happened to be my favorite) had smooth even torch jobs over the whole body, and then the center was given more heat which produced a two toned finish with the darker color in the sweet spot. That was the inspiration for this. I would've liked a more circular shape on the face, but I'm pretty happy with it.

That looks great! Can you explain how the hammering process works?

Sure. It was kind of a leap of faith for me the first time I did it. In fact, I gave it a whirl on the Circa 62 because if it went horribly wrong it was already a rust bucket and learning would've been worth it.

 

There's really not a whole lot to it. The club head should be in a vice - I guess it doesn't have to - but I definitely recommend properly securing it for the majority of your hammering, particularly for your first time. I used my drill press vice (link below). Then you grab a ball peen hammer, the smaller the better for detail work, and start whacking away. I started kind of delicately just to see what the severity of impression would be - I discovered that you want to be more delicate when hammering a top line, because if you catch it on the face edge you're going to foul the face and your edges are going to look sloppy. When hammering a sole (like the counterfeit Monterrey) you can really go nuts. The good news is, if you make a mistake, you're just one swing of the hammer away from masking it.

 

There are going to be areas where it's just impractical to keep the head in the vise. In those situations I just put the head on my anvil and worked slowly.

Yeah, it's pretty simple stuff. Press pause often on the hammering and examine work. You can always hammer more, you can never unhammer

This style is my favorite, and led me to my gamer(s) which are a Scotty Cameron Studio Design 1 & 2. They both have the same purple torched finish and black paintfill, same specs, same grip, etc. I just go back and forth depending on which side my miss is on. (The 1/2 shaft of difference in offset make a difference in my little mind) The torched finish has worn, but I'm very cautious about dings - I worked way too hard reviving them to beat them up! And I'm pretty sure I won't pound 'em with a hammer either! ;)

 

This is the #1:

Love the murdered out paintfill. Very nice hammer work there too. The flange looks awesome. It's definitely more than a little nerve wracking for the first dozen or so hammer swings - especially if it's a piece you care about.

This is where I'd like to get my hammer game to at some point. I know he's a somewhat controversial figure (esp "across the street") but I've yet to see a putter out of him that I wouldn't proudly game.

Thanks for the kind words!

 

Tyson is definitely a prodigy, and I think that he will become one of the greats in due time.

 

I saw a pic of one of his putters with a cherry bomb stamped on it, and the letter F inside it. Anyone who plays golf with me will attest - I need an F-bomb putter in my life! :)
