These putters are unique and need to be seen to be fully appreciated, perfect for corporate golf days, prizes, trophies, gifts etc., as they can also be engraved with a company logo and with personalized names and dedications.

| Production of a wooden putter:
Picture 1. shows cocobolo, that has been drying for 3 yrs, being cut out using only the best grain patterns. The selected piece will then be inserted with ebony, before being bonded to the brass plate.

Picture 2. shows the brass plate being cut out to shape, after which the base angles are cut off and then the plate is ready to be bonded to the exotic wood with both epoxy and brass screws. The putter head is then shaped by hand merging the two materials together. The face angle is then set at 3 degrees, the putter head is then checked for weight and adjusted accordingly before drilling for the shaft.
| The putter head is then prepared ready for six coats of acrylic lacquer. No stain or colour is added to the wood. Only the woods natural beauty is seen through the crystal clear lacquer. This process takes a minimum of 3 days, we "cut back" in between every second coat. When the lacquer is hard, we then buff and highly polish the lacquer to a high lustre. Any engraving can be done before lacquering or before the two finishing coats. The shaft must first be trimmed at both ends before double bending the tip end. This is what enables us to face-balance the putter. The putter is then gripped, polished and packed into a headcover ready for shipping. |
One putter takes a master clubmaker around 10 hours of skilled work from start to finish ! This includes TLC !
