What's going on with the sight line on the back? Looks drawn on by a 4 year old.

Saw that too, the owner probably did a horseshit job of using "paint fill".  A fake wouldn't look that bad.

Or the original fill is flaking off.  I’ve had that happen with a Scotty.  Disappointing to say the least, but a relatively easy DIY fix if you take your time...

It's hard to tell from the pictures but it definitely looks beat up and it's what I would refer to as one of the weird models (no offense) that drop in price far more than the traditional Scotty designs. So I don't know that it's a fake as much as appropriately priced for what it is.

It isn't fake and the site line wasn't drawn on.  That's exactly how the original club looks.  The club has been used without a cover so it has wear.  I can't believe some of you thought the site line was drawn when clearly it's engraved into the metal.  I had this putter and that's exactly how it appears.  It's real.

Nobody said that. They said it looked poorly drawn on. It does. It also looks like it's flaking off, which is probably what is happening.

I have one of these.  This one looks like it checks out.  My advice, nonetheless, skip this putter and get a seemore or snag a newport 2.6 or the new phantom putters look cool.  I love my seemore sb1.  Although I am interested in the directed force putters or the new center shafted scotty.

How easy of a fix is this?  I think the paint fill in my irons' numbers is coming out and I wouldn't mind doing something for them.

It's a simple fix if you have a reasonably steady hand and some patience. I repaint my Scottys as I don't like the stock colors they use. Just need some acetone or paint stripper of some kind to remove the old stuff, then some acrylic paint. You can use brushes but I find the needle tipped paint fill bottles work better and cleaner. Once it's dry you can just wipe over the surface with a little more acetone on a clean cloth to remove any drips or runs.

Specifically you're going to want to use Tamiya acrylic paints, especially if you want translucent colors. Those are far and away the best paints on the market for the job, and they're what I've used for doing my putters.

Those are what I’ve used too.

Available at any good hobby/model store.

    • Seems like he has a good support group and yeah, opening up must be cathartic.  Good on him for addressing it, young kids and all.
    • Good for Bubba to speak out about his problems, and it's even better that he's found his own way of dealing with his anxiety.  What struck me as somewhat odd is that there's not much mention of any sort of professional therapy.  From my own experience, I've found it quite helpful, though damn expensive.
    • You never know about other people and their issues until you step into their shoes.     It was very brave of him to share this.   This will help others that may be suffering from the same or similar issue.
    • Absolutely not.   It's your feel, it has to be right for you.   
    • It is Full Swing.   It has other sports besides golf.   I was there today and watch some kids throw dodge balls at zombies.   First impression.   The distances aren't real accurate.   I've never hit a 4H 200 yards but today that was normal.   There were some shots that seemed right for distances but maybe they had the "boost" set up to help everyone's ego.   I believe I did see that option when we set up the game today.   Whatever, I enjoyed myself (played very well) during this cold nasty drizzle.
