So what if it isn't worth "Full market value"?
1. It works for him.
2. It is still worth a nice chunk because it is an SC and will still putt well.

Is your Vokey wedge worth zero dollars if you have it sole ground? No. So shut up if you don't know what you are talking about.

I probably wouldn't do this myself, but I wouldn't shy away from buying it if it worked well for me.

I think modding clubs is a nice idea. Certainly makes you think about equipment a bit more than just accepting what the companies can give you.

Heck, I'd say that any research facility weighs multi-million pounds

. Just kidding... Many people custom build their clubs because it's what works for them. I see this as being in the same category. He didn't lop off the topline of an iron or the back of a driver head. Just the tail of a putter that I'm fairly sure was added to an existing design in the first place.

1. It doesnt work for him, hence him wanting to add weght. 2. It is worth nothing, no matter how well it putts. It could make him the best putter in the world, it doesnt change the fact that the putter itself is worthless. Is a ground vokey wedge worth anything? No it is not. No-one is going to buy home modified equipment for what it would be worth used and not ground. So shut up if you dont know what you are talking about.

and the cutt off letters are way more distracting than a curved lne could ever be. Things need to be pleasing to the eye to be effective.

I do agree its his to do as he pleases with, and I hope it works for him. But the club isnt worth anymore than a chunk of metal the same weight would be.

I personally would not modify any of my equipment, otherwise I would have bought something else in the first place. However it is obviously worth something to somebody(the op). Therefore it is not worthless, and i'm absolutely positive that if he posted it on ebay then it would sell and there would be bids. The auction would not end with zero bids.

Why is everyone so concerned about resale value? Shouldn't the 1st priority be getting the ball in the hole?

Besides, you can pick these things up for under a hundo. I game a Scotty, but not everything he makes is good.

If it works for the owner, power to him.

i dont know why everyone worried about resale,but uo the op i like it better cut of a curved line is goofy,he did what he wanted,not what you wanted he wanted a differant balance and thats how he done it,along with adding weights to the butt

You have no concept of value at all. First off, It's still an expesnive milled putter and will still preform. Worth less, yes, but still worth more than a walmart junker. Same with a ground wedge. Still preforms, just not the stock specs. Maybe it'll lose some points with some people for not being done by a shop, but who cares. I never expect anything back out of my clubs. I see them and purchased and then used. Any trade in is just a nice perk when I get something new. Get off the money factor and think about the performance/enjoyment/confidence factor.

How does the lettering affect anything? It's on the bottom side that nobody will ever see while standing over a putt. Many people add weight to their putters through weight kits, he just happens to add it in a different spot and method. How are you so concerned with this guy's putter anyway?

im not concerned about his putter Iowa, and I fully agree that its his to do what he pleases.

What im arguing about is its worth, which is now very little. im guessing 20 bucks at best if he was to try to sell it on ebay, and thats being very generous.

All im saying is if he hated the putter, he should have tried others he liked and sold or traded for it, because he doesnt yet know how the putter is even going to perform...

it doesnt bother me that he cut it, but to say it has monetary value, I would have to disagree.

Speaking for myself, I could care less about the resale value of this guy's putter. Not what I would have done, but what I think most people are expressing is remorse for destruction of a "fine" putter.

Ever see Gone In 60 Seconds? When that gorgeous Shelby GT 500 is just mangled and turned into a block of metal at the end? I cringe every time I see that.

It's that kind of response, albeit on a much much much smaller scale.

Thankfully that Shelby was just a clone! I found that out watching an interview with Jolie and Cage.

Since you're asking opinions of how it looks.....

I think it looks absolutely ridiculous. It's horrible/ugly. What's the point of cutting up a putter like that? Feel free to do whatever you want to your own stuff, but you asked for opinions of how it looks.

Congrats Cut Back. Hopefully everyone will be happy now. You've gone from a some kind of putter-butcher (majority opinion) to an putter-innovator. Maybe Scotty will give you a call and offer you a job. I'm not sure why it got so many guys worked up, I'm guessing what you did is the kind of thing that Scotty does all the time. Make a putter, take it apart, tinker with it. The difference is he doesn't post his experiments on the internet and then ask people to comment on it. :) You should change your "In the bag" to Scotty Cameron Detour (Cut Back Limited Edition). ;) Happy putting.

    • I've been Playing Golf for: 3 years My current handicap index or average score is: 4.5 My typical ball flight is: big fade / slice The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: slice   Hey, I have a "my swing" threat on tst right after I started but it's now too old to update so I created a new one. Really interested in what you guys think. I'm working alot on my swing therefore I'm happy for every single tip especially if it straightens my ball flight. Thanks! Videos:     
    • How about The Reserve at Spanos Park?  Just north of Stockton right on I-5, that might work for timing?  In Sacramento, I also see Bing Maloney and Teal Bend both close to I-5. I wouldn't recommend making a detour towards Fresno - really no reason to lengthen a trip to get through there unless you planned on going to Yosemite or Kings Canyon / Sequoia as well.
    • What aspect of putting are you failing at?  For example, I can consistently do the ruler drill to over 80% accuracy (I often get 20+ to go straight out of 25).  Yet I'm a terrible putter, so lately I've been doing a "coin drill" at 4' and 6' (sometimes one or the other, sometimes one then the other).  I put 12 coins in a circle, approx equally spaced, around a hole, and try to make a putt from each coin.  I pick up the coin when I make one from there, and count total putts.  This gives a little bit for line and reading short putts.  I really should institute a penalty for myself when I leave one short from that distance. ESC also had a great drill from 12' or so:  pick a hole 12' or so from you (doesn't have to be exact), putt one ball to it.  Make it, give yourself two points.  Two-putt, and the first went past the hole?  No change.  Two-putt, first didn't get to the hole?  Lose a point.  Three-putt (or worse), lose 3.  See if you can get to 10 points. I guess I'm asking:  is it read, speed, or bead that you're struggling with?
    • Day 60.  Today was a good day for Shindig's game.   I was able to get to a course and spend some time on the putting green, including doing a 6' coin drill, completing it in 26 putts.   That's better than my target goal of keeping that under 30.  Of course, fewer is always better.  I also, later in the day, hit 30 chips with my 56 and 30 with my gap (U) iron, quarter shots all, indoors, real balls, off a mat, into a net, and managed a dozen slow, careful full 6-iron shots too.   If it seems that I'm prioritizing short game lately, you're right.  I have two tournaments in the next seven days, so I'm trying to do what I can in the short term to bring my score down by focusing on these.  Plus, let's face it, my short game is abominable anyway, so this isn't a bad thing long term either (although I do subscribe to 2/3 on long game, in general, of course).
    • Day 492: Something has not been feeling in sync lately, so decided to not do any "full" full swings today. Did takeaway drills in the mirror for 15 minutes, observing DTL and FO views to make sure I am getting to an okay spot at shaft parallel. Then did the same drill outside, and stopped at shaft parallel, and then when a bit further and kind of bunted the ball into the net. Did this for about 30 minutes with a PW, 7-iron, and hybrid.
