I teach at the range that shares property with artisan and Mike T was my first boss out of college years ago. With that I have a good relationship with them and have been down there quite a bit. In fact, I saw these wedges earlier this week. Send the boys a message and you will be very excited about the price. Mike told me a price this week and it was very reasonable. The putters and wedges are the best I have seen or felt and I am in staff with another OEM.

 

Thanks for chiming in. He told me that he had a good relationship with the facility next door. Must be nice to have a place like that next door. I am afraid I would be camped out there all day.

 

The putters look really good as well.

 

Richard, Did you talk to Mike in any great detail about the putters he's thinking of making available? Is it going to be like the wedges where you, I or any average equipment ho :pimp: can have Mike say make me my own personal 006 to spec? Or did you not really get into his business model that far?

Hey guys,

 

The folks out at Artisan are good friends of mine and cant be more excited for what they are doing out at the old oven. When it comes to quality and craftsmanship, you cannot find anything better than the product that they put out. Along with the wedges, they are doing some really neat stuff when it comes to putters (different materials, cg tech, etc.). I have rolled a few of the different head shapes and the feel is just incredible. I know they have a few of the first run available for purchase. If anyone is interested please send them an email at [email protected] to see exactly what they have available. Big things coming from these guys in the next few months.

 

 

The face is what I'm really interested in on the putters

 

 

 

Milled face with 3 different depths of milling. Essentially zero, a mid mill, and a deep mill.

 

 

Hence #showyourface

 

Can’t wait to see what they’re hiding

I have talked to him a lot over the last couple of weeks. Over the years we have gotten to know each other and I respect his body of work so much.

 

They intend to go slow and deliberately. They are set on quality over quantity. He talks about a client as he talked in the past about his tour players. Each have their own customer number and product history. As you order a new wedge the specs and notes are preserved from teh last build.

 

The putters are made in the same shop and lead by John. Heard the feel like butter. I have inquired about getting one. Mike said that John would reach out to advise price and how they will proceed.

Ahhh... Mike Taylor and some of the OG Oven crew from the old Nike Oven got the band back together again. Making wedges and putters to start. Instagram link... https://www.instagra.../artisangolftx/

 

I heard this and called Mike to see what was going on. Said they are building clubs again under a new name Artisan Golf. Made in Texas in the old Nike Oven facility. Same machines, facility and partial crew. David Franklin retired but Mike Taylor and a few others are back together.

 

I asked him to make me a set of gamers. I figured if he can make Tiger Woods wedges I can make them for this hack. ;) I asked him under one condition... that I pay full price for them. Unfortunately he didnt tell me how much they are. Errrr. Told me he would invoice only after I received them and approved of the work.

 

Mike Taylor is honestly one of the nicest guys I have ever met. He always has been one of the greats.

 

They came yesterday. I was able to pick out everything. Grind, finish, stampings and paintfill colors. I went with Raw finish in a higher bounce (12 and 8) 56* and 52*. Asked for some heel relief to allow me to open up the 56* as well.

Any Chance TW appears with TM stamped wedge that looks very similar to these?

 

I would be surprised if he doesn't have TM wedges in the bag at Hero. You would think he would have found his desired wedge set up and grind by now. You guys think he doesn't like the Milled grind and TM is making his own unique wedge?

 

These wedges by artisan are a thing of beauty!!

Truly awesome stuff. Love the shape of those wedges. Can't wait to see the pricing as I know it cannot be cheap. Such a niche market however, I wonder what they can do differently (business wise) that Scratch Golf didn't already try?

I texted with Mike last night. They are going to keep the release of these very slow to start with. He is currently getting new forgings and working on making sure they are right. The wedges they are doing now are from older forgings and he wants to make sure he has "his parts" before they get going full bore. Be patient as the wait is going to be worth it.

The wedges are exciting and I get the draw for a custom wedge. If they have a better price point for custom wedges, they'll sell like hot cakes I'm sure.

 

I'm more interesting to hear about the putters and the different materials and such they've been teasing. Itching to do a custom putter build that doesn't break the bank.
