I got the wife into golf this past year and want to surprise her with a custom putter for Christmas. I don't have a firm opinion on who to go with. Thought I would ask here for some suggestions. Only requirement is that it be left handed. I wanted to get her a Rife like I have, but most models of Rife that I like only come in R handed versions. Behind Rife, I like Scotty's 2nd best. But for what they cost, I can get a custom putter that she will value far more. So that brings me here tonight.

Looking for an anser style putter with a small flower engraved/painted somewhere on it. A tatoo her and her twin sister got while working in Hawaii. Nothing over the top. Maybe her name on it. Something that conveys, "this is just for you". 350-370 grams. Pink or purple metallic finish options would be appealing, but certainly not a requirement. Looking to spend $300-400.

Any suggestions?

If you want to go really custom, look into Sunset Beach: http://ssbeachgolf.com/?page_id=240 They can do all types of finishes (including a white finish that has been big this year), hosels, colors, and tons of stamping. And they start at $270 which is not bad. Their website doesn't specifically mention left handed, but I would be very surprised if they couldn't do it, I would call them or email them to find out.

Dude, that is too weird. The putter you linked is the Southport. My parents have a weekend/retirement home there. Dang. Small world. Also, the company name, Sunset, that is the beach where my wife's family has vacationed since she was a kid. Freaking crazy coincidence. Looking over the site now. I notice Lamont works with them, he is in Arizona. Not sure what the connection is, but seems like many miles away.

TP Mills and maybe Machine putters might pull off what you want. Shot them an email. If I ever decided to get a custom putter those would be my choices.

Edit: After looking, to get customization it may be out of the $400 range for these 2 makers. Never hurts to ask em though.

Doing your own paintfill is SUPER easy. I've done my own before. Just some patience and some toothpicks, nail polsih remover or similar solvent, etc. So.... look for the style you want, go for it, then get some enamel model paint from a local hobby shop ($1-$3 per bottle - tiny little things) and have a go at it.

Thanks for the suggestions.


Sunset Beach didn't have but 2 models in left handed models. Will look at them. Also, C&L; Mills has some nice stuff. Byron, TP, many good choices it seems. But the latter two I mention seem like big companies and may have big wait times. Found out about Yamada hand milled puttters in Japan. Rave reviews from the few owners I heard from. But not custom really, you can't personalize them which is part of the goal for my wife's putter. But they do look amazing. Especially the burnt copper 85092 Masushi? Tempted to buy one for myself.

    • I'm not really sure why you quoted me there and then wrote this. None of this has anything to do with anything I wrote in this thread. The next time I write the word "tragic" here will be the first.
    • And you or a loved one could get killed by someone running a red light, making sudden lane changes at a high rate of speed, texting, falling asleep at the wheel or a myriad of other distractions.  If your loved one died due to these would it not be as tragic, or is it only if alcohol is somehow involved, then it makes it worse?   +1 - Once emotions get in anything bad laws are sure to follow.   Auto crashes may be the biggest threat to children, but that wouldn’t be from drunk drivers killing them.  Lots of innocent people get killed in auto crashes every year, not all are killed by drunk drivers.  I’ll pose a question to all who said yes to the post, if all drunk driving fatalities are unavoidable if the person who is drunk didn’t drive, why are there any other traffic fatalities? Obviously if you haven’t been drinking you should never get in an accident?   I don’t agree that it will save that many lives.  I believe there are something like 6,000 traffic fatalities during sunrise and sunset, when visibility is poor.  Why don’t we ban driving during these times? You’re 61% number is incorrect.  And I posted this on another thread a couple of years ago and @iacas mentioned it already, but I’ll go ever further then he did, not only are more than 50% of all alcohol-related fatalities a single car crash, killing the driver and occupants with them, but not all alcohol-related fatalities mean that the person driving was impaired.  An alcohol-related fatality is if anyone in the car has alcohol in their system.  So a Designated Driver could be in a traffic fatality with 3 drunk passengers and this is 4 people involved in an alcohol-related fatality. Or you could have a beer and some dope runs the red light hitting you and causing a fatality, but you being a driver and having alcohol in your system are probably going to be the one who goes to jail. I’m glad you’ll accept the inconvenience, I’m not.Plus you’re not going to phase out all older cars in 15 years.   Sorry for your loss, but same question as before, would you feel any different if it was a red light runner that caused the same pain?  Not to be callous, just what is the difference. As stated before, more than 50% of the 10,000 are the drivers of the vehicles.   Et tu Brute.... + A Bunch...... + A bunch More... No, my vote would not change in the least.   Most people that cause alcohol-related fatalities are people with BAC around 0.15, almost twice the legal limit.  With as many Bars, wineries, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and how prevalent alcohol is, it’s amazing how safe it is on the roads or is it really becasue it’s not as much of a threat as the media and the government make it out to be.   I think @Pretzel said it great, emotions = bad laws.  
    • A good source to look is often on eBay. While there may not be manufacture specifics, there usually is some descriptive information. I did a brief search on two items that listed the shaft flex in terms which were most likely used back when the clubs were made. One item indicated the shafts were medium/regular and another were described as regular. Your dealing with "Vintage" items which were popular long before the internet.
    • Day 22 Got to take full swings today. First time since injuring my tailbone. It felt pretty good. it will be interesting to see how I feel in the morning.  Funny, putting a ball on a tee, or plucking it out of the hole still hurts a lot.
