The 2009 Golf Digest "Hot List"
Thanks to the folks that tested the putters. We felt like we had a very good product and this is validation that we do.

    Didn't a Mills putter make it in the Hot List a year or so ago? Maybe three?

    Guys - T.P.Mills Professional series recieved the highest performance mark all the way back in 2006. Here was one segment



    THE JUDGES VERDICT: A real player's putter. It's like a good, cold beer-crisp, clean and thoroughly enjoyable.





    This isn't a first time for the Mills putters.

    Mills doesn't deserve a silver, it deserves a gold. Although it's great that Mills is getting some positive pub, the Hot List itself is beyond worthless. As subjective and arbitrary as can be.

    to the guys saying Mills deserves a gold.



    i think Golf Digest takes more into account than whether the golf club itself is good or not. as you can see there's categories such as demand and if i remember correctly, hype is a criteria as well.

    if a TP Mills putter were to get a gold rating they would need to satisfy those too, and being somewhat 'boutique' it is difficult for them to achieve that.



    being GolfWRX forum users, a lot of us has had our eyes open as to the number of great putter makers out there, but keep in mind that a large part of the general public don't know about TP Mills...



    *i think it deserves gold too, but i'm just saying to say that the Hot List is not COMPLETE crap, it just has other criteria that smaller companies can't fully satisfy.

    I'm really glad Mills putters are getting this type of recognition. It's much deserved.



    But isn't the hot list's "hot" point--that the putters are each hand milled by David Mills--wrong?



    Also, you gotta let me know where I can find one for the street price of $360! image/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=';)' />
