I like Scottys but I wouldn't spend that much on one. I don't mind my mass-produced Scotty anyway.

Delusional is about all I can say although I guess with any hobby, we all spend an obscene amount of money on it.

This price is not surprising. Tour issue Camerons go for a lot of money. They are obviously worth it to the people who collect them.

It's nothing to do with how good a putter they may or may not be. The people who buy these particular models rarely if ever use them.

Probably best to let people spend their many as they see fit.

My personal view is that it seems to be a little immature to collect things that say "Tour Use Only" and such stamped and embroidered all over them, but I can certainly see the attraction of a lot of the 009 putters.

We are not talking about a mass produced OTR Cameron here.

Regardless of that the news says somebody has money.  What's fishy is how many "collectable" SC's  are available on E-Bay. Somebody else knows when to take the money and run.

I fail to see what the big deal is - I can get the Damascus by the dozen, directly from a Chinese supplier. When I Googled it - that link came up!

Play lucky bid  on E-bay!

I don't think it's about the putter or its performance -- it's about the name and having something no one else has...

If golfers were serious about their putting and wanted to spend $380-800, imho, they'd get fitted for an Edel. Something that actually works for their stroke.

Its a collectors item and an investment.  Thoses putters never see the course and hold there value.

This sums up my thoughts.

Before I found out about Edel I used Camerons almost exclusively because:

a) they always felt good (not a fan of inserts).

b) almost all of them had toe hang

c) they were almost all fairly simple - even the Detour - in appearance

d) their specs were as close to the listed values as any other putter(s) out there.

I did eight damascus specials in 2005 for the PGA Trade show in Orlando. They sold to collectors at $1000 a piece. Each head was different and one of a kind. No telling where they are now but all the collectors are in the U.S. that purchased them.

    • I know what u mean. I found Bridgestone e5 brand new for 14.98 a dozen which is a 50% savings!!!! I wanted to shout it from the roof tops!!!! Bought six dozen...then shouted it from the roof tops. From the response, it appears no one is listening to anything golf ball related being shouted from the mountain tops as my forum entry had 0 replies. But hey!!! GO US!!!! Everybody loves golf ball deals!! :)
    • I agree with the first reply. Take some time away and give yourself an opportunity to recharge. We all have our slumps - even the tour pros. Remember, it's just a way to get some fresh air and exercise!  
    • I had a stretch like that about a month ago. For a few solid weeks (playing nearly every day), I couldn't break 80 for the life of me. I kept shooting 83, 86, 84... that sort of thing. And I think I was just trying too hard to fix everything all at once.  I started to overthink about mechanics and my confidence was low and I was tense over every shot and every putt and it all just compounded into poor scores and frustration. But then I decided to take a few days off and then followed it up with a few good sessions on the driving range where I focused on swinging smoothly and swinging within myself.  The issues I was dealing with seemed to fix themselves.  I didn't change anything about my swing, I just focused on approaching the game with "ease".  And at the moment I am playing some of the best golf in my life! Everybody goes through their slumps. Maybe just take some time away and when you return remind yourself to slow down and play within yourself. I bet that will help a lot!
    • I disagree with this. Let's take Titleist and/or Mizuno for example, the manufacturing tolerances are the same, the heads are all coming from the same factories and they all get assembled in the same building. In terms of design they probably spend much less time on the muscle back irons because there is only so much you can do with a blade design. More time goes into the design, R&D of the AP irons than the blades.
    • I was in the same place as u about 9 months ago. My home course was a very tight challenging par 66 golf course. Between the terrible hooking and the complete inability to get the golf ball in the air and the losing of 14 golf balls during one round I absolutely hit rock bottom. I was terribly depressed, angry, and heart broken. Unlike most everyone I know, golf is the only interest I possess other than my family. I own firearms but I do not hunt. I enjoy shooting and bowling over work but Im not overly passionate about either. My round on that given day concluded with me on 18 25 yards before the green aimed away from it. I retrieved the last 9 balls from my bag and hit every single one as hard as I could into the lake!!! I yelled, I cussed, I screamed, I behaved like an absolute lunatic. Broken and ashamed, I returned to my car and swore that no matter what I was done for six weeks. I had lost control and track of my priorities. I was holding golf above all else including my beautiful wife and amazing young son. Im ashamed to admit that esp publicly, but golf had consumed me. It was hell, but for six weeks; no golf channel, no golf browsing, no sand trap visits, didnt touch a golf ball or golf club. After six weeks and re prioritizing my life (getting my shit together) I returned refreshed and re discovered my love for the game. And now Ive dropped 8 strokes from my handicap and have done so while playing much longer more difficult courses. And MOST importantly Ive learned to balance golf with life and things that actually matter. Like family!! If u have reached the point u are at now, u are in danger of becoming me. RUN!!! Dont walk...RUN away from golf before its too late. For six weeks ignore all things golf at any and all costs!! Then come back and see what happens. Hopefully u rekindle your passion, if not, theres no law that says u must play golf. There comes a point where giving it up is the right move. ;) But I bet it doesnt come to that. Best of luck!!!!  P.s. Golf takes a lot of time away from the ones we love. Spend that extra time with those u cherish most.
