Tommy Armour 303 Milled Putters

Not with that particular model, but I bought a Tommy Armour Impact Series No. 3 last year and it really helped my putting. I had previously been using an Odyssey White Ice D.A.R.T putter, and the TA definitely improved my putting. I could be wrong, but I believe the milled face helps get the ball rolling quicker than does the urethane face on the Odyssey. Both putters have the same SuperStroke Fatso 5.0 grips, so the difference is all in the putter - and perhaps my head. LOL

I actually have the same putter, the Series No.3 - I like it just fine.

But I've switched to a Ray Cook Blue Goose blade putter, I felt my distance control with the TA No.3 was just not right for me. Thanks for the insight!

I am also gaming the TA Impact #3.

Great putter to lag from long distances

I don't doubt the putter is a good flat stick. Curious how long DSG will carry a premium house brand putter for $250. I think they would be more successful at a sub $200 club. Wish them well. Will check them out next time I'm at DSG.

I messed around with these at Golf Galaxy last week - I really dislike the WINN grip. Not only is it way skinnier than most modern "new" putter grips,  but something about the ergonomics really didn't fit my hands well.

 

The forged 845 irons however... they looked almost as good as my friends new cobra forged tec irons

Agree about the grip. I bought the Infusion series New Haven and loved the shape and feel, but replaced the grip. The putter worked well for me.

My wife bought the Impact #3 when it first came out and she also replaced the grip right off, but she did like that putter.

The guy at Dicks told me he is selling more Tommy Armour than anything else, from putters to irons to drivers.

Don't see me giving up my Ping woods and Titleist irons anytime soon, but it looks like Tommy Armour might be a brand to look at if I do in the future.

In terms of producing CNC machined putters with funky headcovers - They're about 25 years behind the curve.

When they can come up with something more radical in terms of design, then maybe some people will sit sit up and take notice of the price tag. Until that time comes - seen it all before.

Glad to see Tommy Armour is working to get back into the market.  In the 1990's, I had a set of 855 Irons and loved them.  Very nicely made and worked well for me.

I recently picked up a TA 303 Milled Serrano and its a great putter.  Its got a nice, soft feel and seems pretty forgiving.

I love the "Habanero" name and tongue in cheek inference.  Looks like a pretty nice putter and about half the cost of Scotty Cameron and Evnroll of like design.  I've been eyeing new putters and tested SC, Evnroll and PING this past winter.  Nothing has moved me away from my B61...yet. But the Evnroll and PING Sigma 6 had me thinking hard.

So I played my first round with the Habanero yesterday, LOVED it. With the TA#3, I had distance control issues, with the Blue Goose putter, i've had left/right issues. With the Habanero, if I'm 2-putting, my second putt was always within 2 feet.

Plus it looks awesome with and without the headcover, and feels so great.

I don't like the grip, but if I putt like i did yesterday, I don't care
