Restoring/refinishing my Scotty Cameron Catalina

18 posts in this topic

Scotty Cameron wants $175 plus tax plus shipping to restore my Catalina. Tom Slither wants $119 plus $19 shipping. I assume it doesn't get any cheaper than the Tom Slither route?

I found a guy that does the shiny black oxide finish and sent my Catalina to him last week - $75 for the finish and paint fill. He just emailed me and said he shipped it to me this morning, he's 100 miles from me here in Michigan so I should see it Monday. My fingers are crossed . . .

I haven't gotten it back yet, here's a pic before I sent it to him. The last time it rained in my league, I was planning to dry it off when I got home. But I had too many beers with my cheeseburger basket in the clubhouse and I forgot all about it until a couple days later. I'll post an "after" picture when I get it back.

I also would like to know contact info for this person. Thank you. Also, you wouldn't happen to know the shaft tip diameter for the catalina, would you?

This guy does nice work at a great price. Your putter looks fantastic. I am not hawking Cameron, but I believe the $175 includes not only refinishing, but the standard grip and head cover of your choice, and maybe minor adjustments if wanted, and returned to you with documentation.

They also said there would be additional shipping charges on top of the $175 plus whatever it cost me to hip to them initially.  I might have been able to find a new one for that kind of money! Payng $75 seemed good enough for me.

Your putter looks great and that seems like a great price. Yours looks great and if all you want is a refinish, then you made a good choice. I didn't mean to get the thread off track--it is about your putter and not Cameron. I am not pushing Cameron, nor saying that is what you should have done, just saying their $175 is not a rip-off. I just used their online estimate and the $175 includes choice of a standard grip, choice of a standard head cover, restoration to standard loft and lie, restoration of original paintfill, and a new shaft in desired standard length with choice of standard custom shop band. The grip, headcover, and shaft are worth $75-100 alone. So what you get back is essentially a new putter, with new accessories. I have an old Cameron that I picked up for $5, and thinking about giving it the treatment, but like you I am balking at the $175, even though I think it is a good deal.

Found it. Looks nice... I like it and may just go and send my Scotty to the custom shop for Spring and use my Studio 1 until then.

    • He's not denying anyone if he takes it or not. The list of invitations is pretty well established, and as a former champ, he essentially has a lifetime invitation. The field expands or shrinks based on who accepts the invitations. There are no "spots" and they won't invite someone else if Tiger doesn't take his invitation.
    • Some questions to kick off the run-up to and playing of the 2017 Masters Toonamint at Augusta National: Is Jordan Spieth the favorite to win after his collapse last year? Is it the best story in golf? If not Jordan, how about Dustin Johnson? Will Tiger Woods make the cut? Will he play? Will he surprise everyone (likely including himself at this point) and finish in the top ten? If he skips this tournament, will this be the last time anyone really cares? Last year's winner Danny Willett… does he contend again, or will his drop in play (evident at the Ryder Cup) continue? Ask any other questions you may have, and answer them, too.
    • One philosophy has pervaded my life. It's simple really, but doesn't seem to be easy to live with: "There has to be a better way." When I came to golf eight months ago, I applied this principle, as I had to everything I've ever done. Can this be better? Not just for me, but for others. I want to enjoy golf, and I want everyone to enjoy the game, even if they disagree with me or don't need any better. Recently I have been playing rounds of what some of us are calling Play 200. Each hole, I begin at the 200 yard mark (shorter par 3's excepted, of course). I start every hole from 200 yards from the green according to my Garmin GPS watch. Because I can't reach the green in one shot, I have to plan what club I'm going to hit, where I want to land it, from how far out I want to be to hit my second shot into the green. Yesterday, I shot 6 over for nine holes. It was fun. By eliminating the tee shot, I also cut my nine holes down to less than an hour and a half. I played a few holes with two other guys, so that slows it down. They didn't mind, after they understood what I'm doing. I'm practicing. I spent a hour on the range practicing my full swing. I spent a half hour chipping and putting. Then I played nine holes, (after 3 o'clock it's only $10), and was home in time to fix my wife dinner when she got home from work. That's what I call a great golf day. I left the course happy about how I spent my day. My driver is not reliable. My three wood isn't either. Even if it was, I would still keep playing from 200. Some say, "That's not golf!", but if you take the driver out of the bag, is it still golf? If you tee off with an iron every hole, the game has changed. If you "move up," to what? is it still golf? Yes. All of that is golf. So why not do something that works, that takes over half of the frustration out of the game? Why not try something that makes the game more fun, esp if you are over 100 avg.?   Thank you for the folks who have written in support. I know this is a place where people who push the envelope are not popular. I have run into this in many places where the status quo is well-protected. I push the boundaries. I think to myself, "How can this be better," and I work on it. This might be a way to get people to stay playing golf, when they might otherwise give it up. Golf is hard. For more than half of those who try it, it's too hard. They give up. This is way outside the box, but if you think that a without a driver, the game isn't the same, either. It's all golf. Once I can hit my driver, I'll be back on the tee box. Where the fun is one stroke more. Best wishes. Enjoy the process. Think outside the box.
    • I work at a Stations casino. Ours is a second tier house, not a break-in joint. And everything you said is true about 1999. After 2008, it is decidedly NOT true. Only the Wynn dealers have any chance of getting close to a hundred K a year. The vast majority are still making 30% less than 2006, or even less. We make $18 an hour in our casino. All of us. Even the lousy dealers. I've been doing this five years. I have been in Vegas for eleven. You have great insight, for someone who doesn't know. Today I begin forty hours a week, after working 24 hours a week for the last three years. It took THREE YEARS to gain full-time employment in my industry. I took home $25,852.65 last year. My wife does not have health insurance where she works. For the first time in several years, she'll see a doctor. Golf is expensive. Lessons are expensive. Disrespect is cheap. Esp here.
    • Good post. One slight correction is the split in his MP 29 & 14 was between the 4 and 5 iron rather than between the 3 and 4. An interesting side note...his Cobra driver was 43.625" and his 5 iron was 37.75" which used to be pretty standard at the time, but is short compared to most modern specs.
