Casey has gone back to using this putter which was the putter he used when he played in the 2004 Masters as an amateur (runner-up in the 2003 US Amateur)

    that cut slot in the topline that lines up with the line is an interesting way to make sure the face is square

    Is the entire head titanium except for the tungsten in heel and toe?



    Cool idea, and Artisan is the only company (currently) doing anything like this with their titanium hosels.

    His dad played on the PGA Tour for a while also. I too grew up in Memphis and Casey was a prodigy forever. Thankfully for him, he didnt end up like David Gossett and totally flame out.

    This why I've been trying to find an old Rife Aussie mallet with the plumber neck, so hard to find in decent condition. Such a simple and easy way to align face and direction it seems.

    You're thinking of a different ping line. This is basically an otr jas anser save the rife style notch

    All time favorite putter. Hate myself for selling mine
  • mlfmlf Posts: 128 ✭✭
    I bought one in pretty good condition March this year. I bent it to my specs and I cannot find anything to dethrone it. I thought I would use it until my new dale Anser arrived and it was not even close. Feel and distance control is amazing on this thing.

    That is a cool feature. Kind of like the SeeMore putters to insure proper alignment.
