Anyone else see this? Anyone tried one? If so, thoughts?

No for me.

What's interesting to you about it?

Perhaps I’m just really sheltered in regards to golf clubs, I’ve just not seen wooden putter heads before.

Not really a concern, no. Not a ton of force in putting, and proper hard wood won't show damage that quickly. Think about your furniture - it takes a lot to dent that, and that's not super hardwood or coated with the most resilient lacquers or whatever.

I'm all for putting with whatever you like and enjoying the game at that level, but for performance, if you're looking (generally speaking, about all these little putter boutiques with their twisty necks and wooden heads and so on)… get fit for your putter so you can aim it and control the distance.

There are actually quite a few wooden putter heads out there. My guess is most of them have been built by folks who were both woodworkers AND golfers themselves. I know I've made a couple and most everyone in the woodworking group I used to belong to has built at least one. You can obviously use them on the golf course, but here's the problem. You may spend between 20 and 100 man-hours building a gorgeous putter. Very few of us want to take that out on the course where it's likely to get nicked, dinged, or at best dirty. Even with a headcover on it, the majority of us woodworkers made the decision to give them away as gifts or put them on display in our offices that sort of thing.

I haven't built one in a long time. I'll see if I can dig up some photos of any of the ones I've built. In the meantime here's some stuff to watch. This guy went as far as even making the shaft. We always just bought a putter shaft from Golfworks or something like that. 

Here's kind of entry level type of build your own putter.

Okay, last one. This is a commercial one. There really are a ton of these out there if you start looking for them. I still suggest building your own, because it's fun and why not?

I made a wooden putter in high school in our shop class.

I didn't account for the weight/density of wood, so my last-ditch effort was to bore holes in the sides to put lead pellets into the head (glued in, so they didn't move). It kinda worked.

It had a plastic insert. It was "okay." Not bad for a first-timer, but not good.

My cousin had an Otey Crisman putter.  It was cool to play around with, but I couldn't get the speed right on the course.

    • I did tell him to f*** off and worry about his own ball he just talked more shit after...Short of having fist fight with an old man that's about all I could do.  And yes I have called rules violations on folks before, but generally try to help fellow competitors as much as possible during competition. I've been playing in these money tournaments for about 3 years now and it has 120+members and I have never played in a foursome during a tournament where someone was blatantly pulling this.  I assumed there was some rule against it since I haven't had someone try that before. I asked the question and you guys answered, and I honestly didn't thank my manhood or ability to " handle it as a human" would come into question. I think the topic is now over, and ask that you please close the thread unless you folks aren't done attacking me yet.  
    • This reminds me of the episode on Bewitched where Darrin and his boss Larry take a prospective client golfing. The client is addressing his ball and Darrin asks if he inhales or exhales on his backswing and it totally messes the guy up to where he cannot function anymore. Hoses his game.
    • Good grief, man.  Toughen up a bit.  Like @iacas, @David in FL, and others have already indicated: tell the guy to shut up or get over it.  Why is it only in golf do people seem to be so weak-minded?
    • Thanks for posting. I can edit the title for you with the name of the cart if you would like. It would make it easier for folks to find. Also, more picks would be a nice addition.
    • No. Seriously, Matt. Tell the guy to shut his trap or suck it up and/or laugh off his attempts. Jeezus. If it’s this easy to throw you off I almost can’t blame him at all. Handle it. One way or another. If you couldn’t handle it as a human I doubt you could handle telling him he broke a rule if that was the case.
