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.

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.

    • My approach to the short game is to know my distance based on how far back I take the club. So I practice this with my 56 degree wedge, pitching wedge and 9 or 8 iron with a 1/4 and 1/2 backswing, sometimes a little more or less,  maintaining the club face toward the target after impact.  I feel very confident with regards to distance control so my focus is on making good contact with the ball. 
    • Sept. 21 Stopped at course after work. Practiced 8i chip shots and up-and-downs (chip and putter) for 15 minutes. On chip shots, I have bad habit of focusing on cup rather than the desired landing point along way to cup. Still had some mental error chips despite today's focus.
    • Oh, I see....good idea. I copied it and works great.  I simply took two screw eyes, screwed into the end of a real feel mat, and then ran two small, elastic shock cords (1/8  inch with plastic ball ends) through the eyes, tied the other ends together and secured the middle of  this "loop" under a rubber wooden tee holder secured by a galvlanized nail.  A couple of ball bungies would also do the trick. Took all of 40 seconds to make. Since mine is on top of artificial turf, I did not want to punch any large holes that a large plastic lawn spike would make. The small nail makes a negligible hole and dissappears once the nail is removed if you need to move the mat. Thanks for the idea.
    • Obviously I can't offer much in the way of advice but in the last year my 5w has gone from one of my most trusted clubs to one that causes anxiety. What has helped me is coming down at a slightly steeper angle of attack and simply concentrating on hitting a bit more down on the ball... not like an iron, but less of that "sweeping" attack as is often suggested. Good luck and I hope someone can provide some useful advice.
    • I am extremely comfortable chipping from the rough compared to the fairway. I am not exactly sure why, and I know I need to get some lessons. (I plan on getting some in the spring since its already so late in year up here in PA.) In my approach I would much rather put it left, right, or far then to leave it short. I feel this way because its a lot easier to get the ball up and down sitting right were you want it. I am talking from within 40 yards. When in the fairway I have distance control problems within 40 yards. I feel its because of the inconsistency of the launch angle. If I hit it to hard the angle is to low and I launch over the green and if I hit it to soft the angle is to high and just comes up short.  I just wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way or if this was typical for a high handicapper to like the rough from within 40 yards?
