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 need to paint the logo and the words and that top arrow and then it will be done.

I have a shaft from GolfWorks that I’ll be epoxying soon, and then I’ll be installing a grip. I can’t wait to give it to my dad!

More stuff like this to come!

That's cool. 
Have you ever done paint infill? 
It's not too difficult if you haven't. 

 

My only suggestion is to have added a pair of weight ports. Perhaps one on each of the meaty areas at the toe and heel. That way you could have added in stand size weights (sold through Amazon and/or Golf works) to adjust the weight. Currently if you pops wants different weighting you'll have to drop lead or tungsten shot down the shaft and push a cork down the shaft to keep it in place. 

Keep us posted on the progress. 

It's very cool and definitely a unique and personalized gift.

Cool. What's the weight?

I think it's around the low three hundreds -- like 312 or something. We've installed the shaft, but not the grip, and it still feels too light. Hopefully the grip (a jumbo sized one) will give it a little more heft.

The plan is to do paint infill once we've got it all set up. I've got a set of microbrushes and some paint at home, so that's the next step. 

I agree on weight ports. I wasn't sure how this design was going to look or feel, and I wanted a prototype that was as simple as possible. The next design will probably have weight ports tho.

Swing weight will be low. That’s what I’m asking. Probably should’ve been 350 or so?

Yeah, agreed. I should've made it closer to 350. My dad plays a light-ish putter, so while its a departure from his norm, its not too bad. The next one I make will be closer to proper weight

I've used the same technique this guy uses and it's really pretty easy.

    • Day 1: Aftermath of wife's company end of year celebration on Tuesday put my plans on hold, so trying again, again, again or whatever. Worked on backswing - focus on width and depth, with a little bit of toe-up feel. Did this indoors because it's starting to rain, used mirror vision to check on things (need to do this more often/always).
    • Played the back nine again at Minnesott with my son and my friend who’s working back from nerve injury to his right hand (numb little and ring fingers).  He’s contemplating larger grips so we brought a couple irons - one midsize, one jumbo.  He hit a few with each and said he could feel the clubs in his right hand better.  He’s going to work with a fitter about the best grip for him.  How did the round go?  It was a bogie kind of day - one dbl, two pars and six bogies for a 44.  Hit 5 of 7 fairways, the drives were finding the short grass today.  Not quite the same on the par threes, caught the tee shot with heavy 9i on 12 to nearly pin high, but right of the green. Pitched the 58 over the bunker as the pin was tucked tight.  Two putted for bogie.  The other three, 14 was a 6i flushed that landed ball at the back of the green and bounced just off.  Bumped the 50 to get the ball close - not close enough for a one putt par, but rather a two putt bogie.  While it wasn’t the up and down saves for par, felt the overall game was consistent today.  Best highlight was that there were only 18 putts - no three putts today!  
    • Day 23 (08 Dec 22) - Played the back nine today at Minnesott with my son and my friend who recently moved back to the area.  Drill work is paying off as I continue to see more consistent shot results.
