Exciting news!! I've sold one of my putters 😁

Built to the customers specs. 344g carbon steel - bead blasted then black oxide treatment and they've opted for a simple white paint fill which looks great on the black steel. 3° loft, 72° lie. 

Just waiting for the custom headcover being made by Scott Readman and it'll be rolling..

Had a play with the black oxide treatment we have here at work on the carbon steel head. This one will be going in the bag when we can start playing again here in the UK.

Thanks for all the kind words guys, really appreciate them and any feedback:

Had a few games with the new neck & shaft and all is good. Great feel from the shaft. 

I torched the neck prior to fitting and it came out perfect for colour.

The shop demo had a re-buff too:

Yes or no?

A bit slow with updates on this as the machine has been tied up with other work...

Not any more!! I'm pretty chuffed with it so far. Carbon steel, 395g at the moment but have the face machining to do so I reckon around 360g when I'm done.

Looks like "Really Nice Work" on those putter heads. What I would recommend is that you think about designing a putter with a "HIGH" center of gravity instead of the "'LOW CG these putters have. The idea when you putt, is the "ROLL" the ball on top of the grass, NOT pop the ball UP into the air. IF you look at other golf clubs that are designed to get the ball UP into the air, you will notice that they ALL have a LOW CG. That's great IF you want to launch the ball UP into the air, but NOT if you want to ROLL the ball to the cup. Think about it and let me know what you think.

From what I've seen so far, you are doing some beautiful work. Congrats on selling one. The heads just look like they are meant to sink every putt in sight,

This is my 1st proper go at making a putter so I'm learning as I go. What feels right, looks weight etc...I doubt I'll sell many but I'm having fun trying and may try  more designs in the future.

Hadn't really thought about the CG, just went with what I thought would be good.

Thank you 🙂 I wish they did sink every putt, maybe they would in better hands 😆

As #1 was quite successful and came out better than expected I thought I'd have a go at doing another one.

After a chat with the pro he recommended that a more traditional blade would be a good one to try and sell so that's what I'm doing.

I'm going to do a set of 4 this time, 2 x RH & 2 x LH in both 304SS and carbon steel, so that we can put a couple into the shop for demo. 

It's all programmed on the mill, I just need a window in the work-load to get them machined. I did have time to do a sample of the face machining to see how it looks as I'm trying to keep the engraving/logo's to a minimum to try and give them a clean look.

I'll, hopefully, get them done in time for when we can start playing at the end of March 🤞

I'll update as I get more done but, as usual, all thoughts & input gratefully received.

Don't you have to send samples of newly designed clubs to the USGA and R&A for approval before you can start to sell them.

You don't seem to mention this.

"submissions of new equipment to The R&A for a ruling are strongly recommended, but not mandatory" - from the R & A website.

I spent quite a while looking through the requirements for the putter and I'm satisfied that it meets all of the requirements.
