Putters are the one club in the bag that has staying power. Besides a grip, very little is needed to keep the flat stick in tune. That said, there comes a time when a tune up is needed. Remember this Scotty Cameron putter I found at Goodwill? This is my ‘on-deck’ putter, meaning it only gets play when I’m pissed at my primary putter. It was time for a tune up.
As I mentioned in the previous post, I sent it to BOS Golf for restoration, and went for the ‘tuxedo’ look. It cost me a sum total of $110 for the restoration, plus the cost to ship it out to California. I got a call a few days after I shipped the club out there. It was BOS Golf, letting me know that they had received the putter. We went over the order, ensuring that they were doing everything right. The call took less than five minutes, at the end of which they said that they would notify me when the putter was coming home. The process ended up taking about three weeks.
I got the notification from UPS that my putter had been delivered. Needless to say, I was anxious to see how it turned out. Remember, I found this putter for $3.93 at Goodwill, so I could be sitting on a goldmine. I’ve got a second Cameron that I got from a fraternity brother (full story in the previous post), which I use today. This restoration was the trial run. To say that this was a good investment is an understatement. I was blown away at how well the putter turned out:
The integrity of the face was in tact
The top line was really cleaned up…there were quite a few dings
As soon as the golf season is over, my primary is headed in for a tune up.
Thinking about restoring an old Scotty? Be sure to consider BOS Golf. Quick turnaround, high quality work, and super nice folks. VERY good value proposition. Now let’s see if the refinish will help me find some birdies…
