T messages me late yesterday and he's like:

"Hey, I'm too busy lounging out on the coast sipping Cristal and eating fine cheese. I need you to do Tuesday Awesome."

 

Whoa.. I look forward to Tuesday Awesome. I like surprises. What to do.....

 

So I'm texting my Texas BFF last night to the jealous dismay of my wife and he starts talking about J Lindeberg putters he's got. And I'm like what's that? That's pretty awesome.

 

The Story goes like this.

JL wanted to get into the club business during the time of the Puma collaboration. There were between 6-12 putters commissioned by JL for Scott Penrod to make. So 6 of them end up at BestGrips for some leathery love. They ended up keeping 3, one of which got traded for some eye2's.

 

Ladies and Gentlemen, Tuesday Awesome....

Why They're Awesome

  • There's only possibly 12 out there
  • I know a guy with 2
  • They got a cool story
  • Made by Sizemore Putters

Love Lindeberg design.  Used to own 2 pair of the Lindeberg/Puma golf shoes.  They were very nice (if not a little stiff feeling) and lasted about 2 seasons.  Had them in baby blue and orange.  Wish Lindeberg had a bigger presence in the club, grip business.  On a side note, I am biased to Johann because I had the pleasure of meeting him at the PGA championship when It was held at Baltustrol and phil won.  He was standing inside the ropes near the clubhouse and waved me over to comment on my outfit which he liked (I had no lindeberg gear on)  He said, "a Lindeberg belt would make that outfit perfect"  I said I had been looking for a white one for a while.  he gave me his card, said call me, we chatted about fashion, I called his office and 1 week later and a brand new lindeberg slater was in my mail box.  Fan for life.  Own 7 belts and 5 shirts now.  sorry for the long story

This link made me sad. All of those putters are gone now except the Lindeberg.  :(

Wow! That's steep. I know for a fact there are at least 4 in circulation. There were 6 that I saw and I have two of those. Each one was different though. No two were alike.

The guy got called in his ad on it pretty quickly.  They actually contracted Vega, if I recall, to make a small production run for them from these protos.

Didn't know that! My google search just led me to the JL iron/wedges (those look sweet). If they decided to go with Vega, no wonder no one has ever heard of it.

Simply wicked.  Would love to roll one of those.  

 

Next time you are in the Houston area, let me know. I'll bring the putters out to the course!

I think someone here was trying to set up a match next week out in Kingwood with both of us?  I won't be able to make Friday, and you got a tournament on Saturday, so maybe next time pal. Thanks for the offer!!
