  1. To answer your question if I played left handed, I would get a left handed Designed by Flanigan and forget any modern face design.
  2. I have a Cute Kid that is fighting to stay in the current rotation. And I shot my best round in the last 10 years with a Cobra 2200.
  3. These old heads are light as built. My 95-97 Classic Newport head could be as light as 310 grams. My 2000 Art of Putting limited run may go 330 grams. My custom Futura Phantom 33 is 340 grams. The Newport has 28 grams of lead tape to get it up to a D2 swingweight at 33 inches. The Phantom has 10 grams lead tape to get it about D1+.
  4. I would choose either BOS Golf or Ken Flanigan to restore the putter. But why would I want you to restore this putter? It is a light head so it will need a significant amount of lead tape to get it up to a modern weight. And if it fit my stroke, I would want to refinish it to suit my tastes. I recommend you clean it up and put a little WD-40 on it.

  6. See my Anser F thread in putter mods. 330 right on the nose. Turned out well for sitting in a lake for a few years.
  7. Jim actually had a matched set, He was frequency matching his irons and didn't know it. Bob Gilder had an Old Master W802 that was good as my best 8802s. My dad got his Tommy Armour green shafted Ironmaster with cereal box tops in the fifties. I own a couple of store line Wilson 8802 and 8813 putters that only lacked a grip I preferred. A putter needs to fit you. And have look you like and a grip you like. I could end up with a Ping Anser F fished out of a lake and restored, refurbish a limited run Scott Cameron Art of putting Newport, a variety of other Scotty Cameron putters acqu
  8. Remember they banned the Golf Pride Grip Rite putter grip for no good reason. After it had been used for forty years.
  9. I'd still use Loomis Tours in my irons if I could.
  10. In college I went through two sets of Wilson Dynapower irons. Then it took 17 years to wear out a set of Ping Eye Irons. Then I wore out two sets of Cobra Greg Norman blades in six years. In my mid forties to early fifties I wore out three sets of Ben Hogan GCD Tours. In my mid fifties a set of Titleist 660's lasted four years. My previous set Tommy Armour 845C irons started showing wear early. Currently no real wear on my Titleist 716 T-MB irons. I'll give you four years.
  11. I hope you got it at a great price. My Bolero $25, Red X3 $46, Futura Phantom $60. I'm in an Art of Putting Newport like yours about $200.
  12. What I think you have is an aftermarket nickel finish. Something I might do to mine without the dots since my two favorite Wilson 8802 putters have nickel finishes. I'd be tempted to use it as is.
  13. I'd contact Lamont Mann or Ken Flanigan and see what they can do. My opinion not shared by many is fix the face and top line and add lead tape to the sole. If either of my Newports survive Scotty's toe hang test, they will have lead tape on their soles. A Futura Phantom is leading, an 8813 is second, a Red X3 is third and about to be eliminated is a Newport.
