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.

    • The only problem I found on bending clubs are the ones that have little plastic/metal inserts on the back side of the clubs.  Because of these inserts, some local proshops, and/or club builders won't touch them for fear of breaking/cracking/popping those inserts. The owner, in need of an adjustment, may be required to send their clubs back to manufacturer. 
    • Day 478 It arrived today. What arrived was my new driver: a Ping 410 Plus with Alta CB Red Soft Regular Shaft. As I am still getting used to the new toy, I started with all the adjustable parts set to the most neutral settings.  Soon I adjusted to help with a slice. All after that change were straight where I was aiming.  I seemed to have picked up 10 MPH in terms of ball speed.  I need to work now on the results not being so high. I intended to hit only 20-25 balls.  I ended up hitting 45 as this club made driving fun.  It was easy to hit towards  various target greens.  What I need to adjust after a few more practice section I the launch angle to lower the fact that wit my older drive I tend to hit high spin. I rarely, if ever, fall in love with a club so quickly, but even with days of getting used to it ahead, as I said in my review on the Ping web site, it was love at first whack.
    • Was wondering if anyone has played here. Playing the ledgends course. 
    • Totally agree with keeping them standard length to start with. Can always grip down when they are long, but can't go the opposite way. Bending Pings is difficult at best and don't assume you will be able to have it done easily. May have to send back to Ping if you want them bent after the fact but they can do it.
    • Day 28 What a GREAT day!  This is why everyone should have a golf coach! So, about 5 weeks ago I was playing great. Then suddenly I completely lost it. Then I got hurt (non-golf related, but screwed up my game). When I came back from my injury I was pretty close to hopeless.  I got with my golf coach and he and I worked through what all had changed in my swing. It turns out I had made a minor adjustment without realizing it. Then I made an adjustment to counter act that adjustment, then another and another and pretty soon my swing was nothing like what my swing used to be like.  My coach brought up the video of my swing when it was good. We compared it to where I found myself after … I'll call it my melt down. Anyway, my coach was able to quickly get me back where I was before. Suddenly I was striping the ball down the middle again. Yay!  Anyhow, back to today's practice. I hit trajectory drills with the driver. I'd hit a high fade, then hit an 8-iron shot. Next I'd hit a low draw, then hit a hybrid. After that I'd hit a high trajectory drive, then hit a 4-irion. Basically I'd work through the 9 shots with the driver: high, medium and low, Draw, straight and fade combinations. But after each driver shot, I'd hit a different club from my bag, picking the club pretty much at random. I didn't want to hit any club more than one time in a row.  In the end I hit the ball so well on the range I had to run out and play 9 holes. My game has returned, I went 3 over for 9. I hit the ball so much better than I'd been hitting it recently. It felt great.  That's the reason everyone should have a golf coach.
