Designing a Golf Club IV

I did it. Putter head complete. This design is called Cazador Mustang. Cazador meaning Hunter in Spanish (my high school nickname), and Mustang being my high school mascot.  This design was milled from aluminum in Georgia, by PrintForm. It’s my dads father day gift.

I do think I have an idea for a putter, though, and I'm going to build it and test it, both on course and at a putt lab.  After that, or perhaps during, I'm going to try and cast some iron heads.
