Tyson Lamb Putters


BIG STU

Recommended Posts

What is the deal I read on MGS Twitter about Tyson Lamb contacting customers who buy and then sell his putter? Is all of that true? Just curious

I saw that. From what I can tell a MGS staffer posted a casual "anyone want this?" on IG and got flooded w offers. Tyson Lamb saw it and lost his sh*t. Bombs now being lobbed in all directions.

Not sound business sense at all that is a good way to stop selling your product.

This was pretty childish by Tyson. I've heard some bad things previously but this is dumb.

Not a great business model, but I do believe he makes these by hand for the individual. It's kind of cool to have a 1 of 1 putter made just for you, if you can afford it. He didn't do it the right way, but I think that he's basically saying, “Don't waste my time buying a putter you want to sell. I'm making putters for guys who want them.”

I'm sure anyone buying one of his putters isn't buying with the intention of flipping. What if they just can't sink putts with it? Is it a crime to sell it and move on?

In most cases, no one likes to see other people make money off of the work they do, without some kind of reciprocation. That said, calling them up and going about it the way he did was ass.

Awfully so for someone that has as many wins on any tour with his putters as I have tour wins.

 

To save in the math the answer to both is zero...

 

We all know I love putters and there is zero shot I would ever own anything from him based on what you read about him before this dust up.

Agreed. Heck even the "good" story MGS did on him awhile ago turned me off of him pretty quickly. I'd imagine it's like if Donald Trump owned a putter company

Maybe they knew you still owned every putter you'd ever looked at?

I think the whole "cult of the craftsman" is so overrated.  Like Jmike said, how many wins with Lamb putters.

 

I know quite a few guys who have owned Lajosi putters. Sure they are beautiful looking putters, made with care and attention, but none of the guys who own them still use them, because they didn't work any better than any other putter they'd owned.

 

This runs to my thoughts on Scotty Cameron, Vokey etc. If Bob Vokey was the be all and end all of wedge design, surely he would have nailed the perfect wedge design years ago. Don't get me wrong, they're good wedges, but like any other club, are they better because they've got someones name on them?

I think all parties involved could have handled themselves better in this situation.

So here's the real question: What are they supposed to do with the putters once the test is over?

 

 

I'd argue that there's more value to reselling the putter and letting another player enjoy the craftsmanship than keeping it on the wall for display. What customer X is willing to pay for the putter is besides the point.

I don't.

 

I'm a Cabinetmaker. I've made quite a few pieces of furniture for people that really wanted what I do. They found that the pieces I did didn't really fit their style or didn't look how they thought they would, where they wanted to put it/them. They asked if I would be offended if they sold it/them to someone that wanted it/them. Hell no!

 

I got paid for my work..... what's the problem? For me.... I have no problem with it. My work is still out there!

It's a little different in my opinion. How would you feel if someone contracted you to do cabinets for one of their jobs but upsold it? Why shouldn't you just do it at the price point they sold it for? People have tried to leverage our company to do work and skim off the top before, we turn those "opportunities" down - we're not street workers who will do the job so you can skim off the top, unless it's insanely lucrative. As someone who I look up to always says "everyone has a wh**e price."
