Who’s still got that old putter they could easily game?

Recommended Posts

Any members still use or can’t get rid of an old classic putter regardless of all the new tech? 
 

I’d all but given up on blade putters until I snagged this old putter for less than $5.   After practicing with it all winter I’m really thinking of purchasing another blade putter this coming week while on vacation in NC.   Maybe a Cameron Newport, Bettinardi BB-1or Ping Vault Anser. 
 

Let’s see what you’ve kept around or are still gaming.

I've tried loads of putters over the years and moved them on, but I keep coming back to an old Taylor-Made Rossa Monza circa 2006.  The o ther old favourite is an brass milled Yasuda that I've had about 30 years. My latest purchase was a TM Spider Tour X but it is now in the garage.

Funny you kept a Rossa.    Here’s one of my keepers.   I putted better with it than the Spyder.

Played each of these on course in 2019.  There are more, but this is a good start for 7am in Minnesota 

Here are an 8813 and a Mizuno TP Mills TPM-2.  Note the lead tape on the 8813, I hope Big Stu sees this  🙂

Great shine obscuring the soles.  Top is Golden Ram TW Custom, bottom one is Ram Wizard 600

Still play my 1998 SC SS LN. Just feels good when you aim, and putt with it.

I am here!!!!  Too bad I can't do pics anymore old putters you say? How many gigabytes or what ever does MGS have?  NRJyzr saw your Mills. I had always wanted a Mizuno TP Mills #2 and Christmas week I did a trade deal for one. Have a plethora of Spalding TP Mills. Ok in the last 3 weeks I found 2 other vintage putters on the piles

A Otey Chrisman Calamity Jane Bobby Jones style with original hickory shaft and Neuman leather grip in pristine shape someone had this one put up but it somehow ended up on the scrap pile.

A Macgregor IM 5 Ironmaster reproduction with the green shaft. When I first spied it I thought I had hit my holy grail which would be a 49 Ironmaster with the green pyratone shaft. It had enough rust on the head. The shaft has me puzzled it seems to be graphite but stiff as rebar .  Now it was sorta rusty but cleaned up nicely with elbow grease and Bar Keepers Friend. Has the original Macgregor Neuman leather grip on it too and it cleaned up nice. This putter is a puzzle to me> I have seen quite a few on E - Bay but none with that shaft.

NRJyzr--- I have a Ram Gene Littler which looks like a cross between your 2 Ram putters----- I am a sucker for 8802 styles but believe it or not do not have a Wilson 8802 in my stash. The closest thing I have is an old Cleveland Designed by and a Little David 8802. I even have 3 Lynx versions including a newer Black Cat with the insert. I traded for the Black Cat a couple of weeks ago believe it or not I traded an old Ram Zebra and a Zebra look alike Harley Davidson branded putter for it. Ironmasters I have a bunch of in different versions and years but do not have that unicorn 49 with the green shaft. 

i more than likely have over 100 putters but hands down when it is on the line I love the rusty lead taped Scotty in my signature which by the way is a junk pile find too. One of the Scotty experts on WRX dated it as a 1997 vintage

One other thing I forgot I have about 10 Bulls Eyes from all vintages and have more than likely given away 20 or more

I still have my Ping Zing that I played for all of high school and college that I could chuck in the bag tomorrow.

And yes for a long time I was a one putter guy.
