We also have a Lola 1.5 which is like a Mini 8802

 

I think that somehow pictures of the Lola 2 have evaded me to this point. That is an absolute beauty. I love the way it tapers in at the heel. I don't know that I could putt well with an 8802, but I've been wanting to add one to my collection for a while and that has jumped very near the top of my list.

A bit of a funny story, a clubmaker I know had some farmer come down and looking to get a putter he made and wanted to trade in his old 8802 putter. The farmer said he painted his old putter black because the sun would glare off the face and blind him when he was putting. He then traded the putter in and paid $10 for a new putter the clubmaker had made.

 

So the clubmaker decides to get rid of the black paint and finally uncovered the putter was an ORIGINAL 8802. Nice trade-in.

Nice, finding a hidden diamond is always a good thing.

I've owned soooo many traditional heel shafted putters over the years, I can not even begin to name them all. There have been hundreds over the years and I think I tried about all of them one time or another. I've also tried a good number of the most recent ones offered as well. I found out sometime ago that this style is just really not the best for me so I have switched, but I still love the style from a looks standpoint, I just can't putt with one.

3 Wood: Titleist 915 F 15*  40.25"
5 Wood: Titleist 915 F 18* 39.50"
7 Wood: Titleist 915 F 21* 39.25"
Hybrids: Titleist 913 H 24* 38.50" & 27* 37.50" 
Irons: Titleist DCI 990 6 thru 9 -0.5"
Wedges: Titleist DCI 990 49* and Vokey SM 52.08 & 56.14 -0.5"
Ball: Titleist 2015 Pro V1x
Putter: Titleist Scotty Cameron 2014 Select Newport w/SS 3.0 34.00"

I think that Phil may be the only one left who can. They do look so good though. Even the modern ones. Bettinardi BC7 and the Byron Morgan ones are stunning.

I've seen him put a number of different putters in play over the years...

 

Odyssey White Hot XG #9

Odyssey White Hot XG Blade

8802 Customs from Scotty

Cameron Futura

 

Others?

 

Last year, I sold a Bobby Grace handmade 2200 in the fog chrome that he made for Phil, I believe quite a while ago. It had to be pre-Cobra and such. The putter was amazing.

I contacted Bobby, thru Facebook and he authenticated it, saying that he remembered that putter taking 12-15 hours of hand work to get just right. It had Phil's loft, machined in, Phil's lie angle and even Phil's preferred grip, at the time, a GripTec wrap.

Here are some pictures of that bad rascal.

Sad part, it sold on eBay, about two days before I got the confirmation from Bobby. The owner had tried to get ahold of Bobby and finally just decided to move it out. His collection was not set-up to have Grace putters, ;-). It sold for a small fraction of what I believe a Tour Issue Hand Made Bobby Grace, specifically for Phil Mickelson, should have sold for. The winning bidder contacted me to get the good news and was extremely jazzed. Not every day does a LH'd golfer find a treasure like this, and purchase it for a song. It has a very loving home and will see bag time, as it should.

Thanks LaMont. The reflection of the photographer in the fourth photo gives you an idea of how sweet the finish is.

Can you tell me about the Griptec grip? I am not familiar with that company/grip. Is it larger than standard?

I did great on the putter. The gentleman who purchased it from me knew in his heart exactly what it was. He has been collecting putters for a long time and was VERY VERY well-versed in Grace's classic stuff. But, in today's market, COAs and such can make or break a putter, even one that is this clear. He sold it just about a week too soon and was incredible about the whole deal.

The new owner is very, very happy with the putter and told me that there is no way that it'll be a wall hanger. Bobby made it to be played and it will be just that.

Great to have it in the hands of someone who'll play that rascal.

Thanks,

As far as the Lola and Lola 2 we can make them pretty much whatever weight you want.
