Golfchicago says to (21:04):

Im going to be typing in questions asked earlier and then we will have time for other questions

 

Golfchicago says to (21:04):

David when and how did you get involved in the business?

 

David.Mills says (21:05):

I got started in when I was 11 or 12 years old

 

David.Mills says (21:05):

I started by cleaning up the shop. Sweeping the floor for my dad, taking out garbage, odd jobs. Didn't get to work on the clubs till later much later.

 

David.Mills says (21:05):

I started Polishing clubs first. During HS and College I started learning the shape of the putter, hosels designs, etc.

 

David.Mills says (21:06):

I learned most of from my Dad as I was going through college.

 

David.Mills says (21:06):

I enjoyed doing it and so I started working for him.

 

David.Mills says (21:08):

I played golf with Steve Lowery in College

 

David.Mills says (21:09):

I played 4 quarters at Auburn

 

David.Mills says (21:08):

And I can play left and right handed

 

golfcraze says to (21:09):

hi david, its me Lou with the Black refinish

 

David.Mills says (21:09):

Hi Lou

 

Golfchicago says to (21:09):

What are your hobbies?

 

David.Mills says (21:09):

They change as you get older. My family plays alot of sports.

 

David.Mills says (21:09):

But I don't have much free time anymore. 12-15 hours in the shop and then home to the kids.

 

David.Mills says (21:10):

I have a little boy 5 girl 7 and that's my hobby right now.

 

David.Mills says (21:10):

Throwing balls in the front yard around and getting them tired enough to go to bed.

Golfchicago says to (21:10):

What is the most memorable experience in the business?

 

David.Mills says (21:10):

The most memorable would be the scoring record used with my putters by Pros

 

David.Mills says (21:11):

The putter design used to break a Scoring Record that Tommy Armour broke in TX

 

Golfchicago says to (21:11):

What specific clubs do you and your dad play?

 

David.Mills says (21:12):

My Dad is up there in age now but, when he was with Spalding, had an all Spaulding bag.

 

David.Mills says (21:12):

I play Miz MP-19, Spaulding SW, Adams Woods Driver/3W, Yonex Hybrid 2I

David.Mills says (21:12):

Putter is an old rusty handmade that I made myself. I don't have time to keep it nice and clean anymore...

 

hey_you says to (21:13):

I was wondering what kind of putter you played {smile_smiley}

 

David.Mills says (21:13):

An old rusty handmade I did

 

Golfchicago says to (21:13):

How many tour players play your putters now?

 

David.Mills says (21:13):

I get out to about 10-12 events per year in the southeast and sometimes north

 

David.Mills says (21:14):

Maybe 6-12 will have my putter in play in each week.

 

Golfchicago says to (21:14):

Do you pay anybody to play the putter?

 

David.Mills says (21:14):

Pros still come up to me and ask how much for a putter. That's a tradition my Dad started and I am very proud of.

 

David.Mills says (21:14):

In this day where athletes get paid so much to play clubs, I am proud that they still come up to me and ask. I will usually swap putters for balls, gloves, clothes, etc.

 

David.Mills says (21:14):

My Dad started that tradition and I'm proud to carry it on. We both believe you have to give something to get something.

 

 

Golfchicago says to (21:15):

It is now open for questions on Davids background.......

 

hey_you says to (21:15):

You are doing a great job!

 

OakieISI says to (21:15):

so they still pay you for putters?

 

David.Mills says (21:16):

I don't hand out putters and I try to make myself different from others

 

David.Mills says (21:16):

So I trade balls, gloves , etc for putters.

 

golfer_junior says to (21:15):

where did you go to college?

 

David.Mills says (21:15):

I went to College at Auburn

 

glenwayputters says to Gxgolfer (21:15):

murray state and auburn

 

Goose says to (21:16):

and u did play on the golf team???

 

OakieISI says to (21:17):

that is Awesome... David - I am going on 14 months since I got my Hand Made from you and it is better than ever -

 

yankees06 says to (21:17):

So you don't try to trade for their old putters

 

Goose says to (21:17):

and u did play on the golf team???

 

Goose says to (21:17):

and u did play on the golf team???

 

David.Mills says (21:17):

yes

trotgolfer says to (21:17):

At what age did you do your first mill job on a putter? Do you still have it??

 

David.Mills says (21:18):

I made it by hand since no cnc machines

 

David.Mills says (21:18):

I filed it by hand, shaped it by heat, and did alot of grinding and polishing.

 

David.Mills says (21:19):

That taught me how to make any putter and I could make anything I could imagine

 

 

OakieISI says to (21:18):

how old were you?

 

David.Mills says (21:19):

Early 20s I did it with alot of hand tools

 

Golfchicago says to (21:19):

We are now moving to the second part of the chat...Design. David will answer some preassigned questions and they we will open the floor

 

glenwayputters says to Gxgolfer (21:19):

Matt he appreciates you keeping your putter in the bag for 14 months

 

trotgolfer says to (21:19):

are all your designs based on your dads designs??

 

IMAGOLFER says to trotgolfer (21:19):

what is your daily / weekly routine like?

 

IMAGOLFER says to trotgolfer (21:21):

whats the process?

 

David.Mills says (21:19):

I will start with a customer and his specs.

 

David.Mills says (21:20):

I will try to work on 2,3, or 4 different putters a day

 

David.Mills says (21:20):

I work on a few a day because I can set one down and go to another. I can come back to each to get a different look, feel or thought.

 

David.Mills says (21:20):

So instead of a going at it, it helps me to look at it at from different perspectives

 

Golfchicago says to (21:19):

How long does it take you to build a custom putter?

David.Mills says (21:21):

1.5-2 days from start to finish

 

OakieISI says to (21:21):

How many hours would you say go into each putter?

 

David.Mills says (21:21):

1.5 to to days

 

Golfchicago says to (21:21):

What type of finishes do you have?

 

David.Mills says (21:22):

My Dad designed the Black Oxide design

 

David.Mills says (21:22):

He also did the bullseye flange. I didn't believe him till one day we sat down and he showed me.

 

David.Mills says (21:22):

The black Ox, Satin Black Ox, Age nickel, bright nickel, satin nickel.

 

trotgolfer says to IMAGOLFER (21:22):

do you have a nice rusty finish??

 

David.Mills says (21:22):

I don't plate them here, I send them out and I hope the plater does as good job as I do.

 

David.Mills says (21:23):

The raw finish is a polished steel

 

David.Mills says (21:23):

or a bead blating

 

David.Mills says (21:23):

Mickelson wanted a raw putter and I left it like that to rust.

 

David.Mills says (21:23):

A raw looks chrome

 

Golfchicago says to (21:23):

How many hours go into making one putter?

 

David.Mills says (21:23):

1 to 1.5 days.

 

David.Mills says (21:24):

The process of blueing. shaping, welding is very intensive. Belt work, sanding, polishing, blueing it

David.Mills says (21:25):

I will do alot of grinding to start then once you get the shape, fine tune and then start shaping the hosel into the head

 

David.Mills says (21:25):

I then start setting the hosel and lie and loft, check your lie/loft , stamping, then polish.

David.Mills says (21:26):

Hopefully then it looks like jewelry.

 

David.Mills says (21:26):

Then you can blue it, clean, wash and cure it, then do it again.

David.Mills says (21:26):

Finally package it and get it to the customer

 

OakieISI says to (21:26):

i would love to see a video... day in the putter studio with David Mills

 

David.Mills says (21:27):

I wouldn't want to show everything

 

David.Mills says (21:27):

My Dad did that before and some things got out

 

Golfchicago says to (21:27):

How much testing goes into creating a design?

 

David.Mills says (21:27):

I have a putting green outside the shop but I don't test quite as much as I used to.

 

David.Mills says (21:27):

I know when I am designing putters I pretty much know what's going to work

 

David.Mills says (21:28):

I built a putter for Jay Haas, and I did alot of testing with that putter. It looked like a bullseye

 

Goose says to (21:28):

David have you ever been asked by tiger to make one...maybe when he first came on tour??? Are there any otherBig name pros like Mickelson that have asked you to make them one???

 

 

David.Mills says (21:29):

Phil called me and we had a long talk and I have had other that I've made clubs for.

 

David.Mills says (21:29):

Tiger has not but, I build clubs that players win with.

 

David.Mills says (21:29):

The putter I made for Mickelson I talked with him and I built one for myself first to test.

 

David.Mills says (21:30):

I think he beat Tiger heads up the first time using it.

 

David.Mills says (21:30):

Tiger knows of our company and I've been told he admires mills putters

 

stevend1 says to (21:30):

Don't you have a cancelled check from Phil on your website?

 

OakieISI says to (21:30):

If you could pick one tour player to have your putter in play - who would that be?

 

David.Mills says (21:30):

Tiger Woods, I've had other play and win with them

 

David.Mills says (21:31):

ITs good to have one good player that 10 avg

 

David.Mills says (21:31):

I would like to make Tiger a putter he liked

 

Goose says to (21:30):

are you putters still marked TP mills??? An indoor facility near us had an equipment comtract with Mizuno and they carried TP Mills putters

 

Metalhead says to (21:31):

do you see any current trend happening in putters right and going forward...such as the MOI craze, which I personally detest...Maybe such things as alot shorter more compact designs or rusty finishes or overall shorter shafts..etc.??

 

David.Mills says (21:31):

I don't have an MOI putter coming out

 

David.Mills says (21:31):

I get asked alot about when am I going to make a mallet?

 

David.Mills says (21:32):

I have designed a truely unique mallet but we are to small to make it.

 

David.Mills says (21:32):

A bigger company would need to produce it because we can't make it in house. Its a shape that I have in my head and I got some bars of alumini and started grinding till I got the shape. I did it by feel. Its striclty a master, very unique shape.. I hope to get it to a producer to get it out there

 

bjgolf says to (21:32):

Have you ever been offered a contract by larger companies?

 

hey_you says to (21:33):

Make the one and I am sure us putter NUTS will fund your way to be able to make the rest of them

 

Metalhead says to (21:33):

Sorry, I wasn't specifically asking about MOI's.. But rather other designs and trends you get asked about or specific requests

 

Goose says to (21:33):

are you putters still marked TP mills??? An indoor facility near us had an equipment comtract with Mizuno and they carried TP Mills putters.. and are you in a commitment with mizuno or partnership

 

David.Mills says (21:36):

The TP brand is still on the clubs.

 

glenwayputters says to Gxgolfer (21:37):

yes, the Mizuno putters were designs of the TP Mills co

 

Goose says to (21:36):

so i was right that your are/were partnered with Mizuno

 

David.Mills says (21:34):

There are positives and negatives to working with other manufacturesr

 

David.Mills says (21:34):

Like the mallet, we cannot do it inhouse. A large manufactuer can bring it to market much quicker. Bring brand and model awareness much more.

 

David.Mills says (21:34):

Beaurcracy is a big issue though. Being small has its advantage. You are your own boss and make your own way. It depends if the situation is right. If the OEM is interested in us and concerned about bring quality to market then we would be interested

 

David.Mills says (21:36):

I don't have any intentions right now and I don't want to have a company use our name to sell clubs

 

OakieISI says to (21:35):

is that one of the fall-outs from Mizuno - the lack of advertising or is that too sensitive of material?

 

hey_you says to (21:36):

David, Thanks for the great putters and designs. also big thanks to your father for what he brought to the table! I am sure I will have a handmade mills soon. I wish you the best of luck with anything you tackle. Have a great night!

 

distantfromyou says to (21:36):

it is rumored that you have or have had a relationship with cameron. i believe i heard that you taught cameron about making putters. is this true in part or full?

 

David.Mills says (21:37):

The public by in large, doesn't know me but maybe in the future it will.

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:37):

Do you sell all your prototypes? What about ones that didn't pass testing stages?

 

David.Mills says (21:37):

TP Mills is much more recognizable in the world

 

David.Mills says (21:37):

I didn't teach Scotty Cameron to make clubs/ We are about the same age. We aren't the best of friends and Titleist does there own thing but we see each other out there

 

Goose says to (21:37):

ive always liked the look of your putters but unfortunately never picked one up

 

OakieISI says to (21:37):

David out of curiousity... How old are you?

 

David.Mills says (21:38):

I am 43 years old

 

OakieISI says to (21:38):

what does Dad think of Bettinardi and Cameron?

 

David.Mills says (21:38):

Well you know they both copied our Designs so I 'm not sure what to say about that

 

David.Mills says (21:39):

My dad was a great salesman and he would say there's only one Rolls Royce

 

stevend1 says to (21:38):

What is your handicap?

 

David.Mills says (21:39):

I am a 6 on the home course 7 on the road. I play right and left

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:38):

you should pursue more advertising on forums like golfwrx... {whistle_smiley}

 

Golfchicago says to (21:39):

What weight does the tour players prefer?

 

David.Mills says (21:40):

Fitting and Tour players has changed over years from the 60, 70, and 80s and now.

 

David.Mills says (21:40):

The swing weight D0 was considered heavy in those days. now D5 and up.

 

David.Mills says (21:40):

Today, low 340s high 330s for head weight but depends on shaft and grip

 

David.Mills says (21:40):

Like a fishing rod. I try to match the shaft flex with the putter head weight.

 

distantfromyou says to (21:40):

i like the idea that a lot of people do not know your name. i find that this brings better quailty to the mills putters. i definitely would not want to see tp mills the size the cameron and others

 

 

Golfchicago says to (21:41):

Do you ever make a putter with an open or closed face and why?

 

David.Mills says (21:41):

No putters with a close face but yes to some open

 

David.Mills says (21:42):

I talk with players and its how they look to the player. I make it with a plumber neck to adjust it open

 

David.Mills says (21:42):

Toms like his grip open to accentuate it through the club

 

David.Mills says (21:42):

Helps him to not shut it down

 

David.Mills says (21:43):

Scott hoch use a round grip so he can change his grip to whatever he wants.

 

trotgolfer says to David.Mills (21:43):

does swingweight matter?

 

David.Mills says (21:43):

Most of my putters are not face balanced

 

David.Mills says (21:43):

A face balance putter is no better or worse.

 

champx2 says to (21:43):

David, I have always been a fan of 350g at 35". Is that commonm on tour?

 

David.Mills says (21:43):

It helps to keep the head on line. Every stroke has an arc. Short putters it helps more. Long putters it can hurt.

 

David.Mills says (21:44):

35 inches is the standard length for manufacturers

 

David.Mills says (21:44):

350 on a 35 would be heavy

 

David.Mills says (21:45):

340 would be better for 35 but it depends on grip. Other than the belly, 34-33.5

 

David.Mills says (21:45):

350 is a good weight to avg to good putter at 34".

 

stevend1 says to (21:44):

Are you a good putter?

 

David.Mills says (21:45):

I consider myself a damn good putter. Left and right handed

 

David.Mills says (21:45):

I know how a putter work. The designs, concepts, theory of the stroke. So I can put well left and right handed.

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:46):

any new designs in the works?

 

cameronaddicted says to (21:44):

david is it possible to make something similar to the tpm 3 work shop in stainless with a double bend shaft ala anser x or catalina. sorry im getting ideas for a custom from you

 

David.Mills says (21:46):

I can make just about any putter but call me or email for specifics

 

David.Mills says (21:46):

I won't copy another manufacturers putter

 

David.Mills says (21:47):

If someone like a specific shape a putter I tell them to stick with that manufacturer

 

chicubs says to (21:46):

sorry, came in late, just curious, what was the reason for breaking off with Mizuno?

 

David.Mills says (21:47):

Mizuno is a Japanese own company

 

David.Mills says (21:47):

I was with them for 4 years and so was Scotty.

 

David.Mills says (21:48):

It was a good time for both of us

 

bjgolf says to (21:47):

Where are you based?

 

 

David.Mills says (21:48):

I am base in tuscaloosa

 

trotgolfer says to David.Mills (21:48):

what do you think of the new scotty circa putters?

 

 

David.Mills says (21:48):

I better not answer about the Circa 62

 

 

OakieISI says to (21:48):

how is it being an Auburn man living in Tuscaloosa?

 

stevend1 says to (21:48):

Just because a putter has a good shape doesn't make it a good putter does it?

 

David.Mills says (21:49):

I try to answer all emails but, I do it at home and not at the shop

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:49):

do you have reps? out on tour?

 

pitchmaster1224 says to (21:49):

what do you think of the agsi technology from taylormade?

 

Chelanace says to (21:49):

Do you have a fitting studio?

 

David.Mills says (21:50):

We have a fitting area but not exotic equipment like lasers

David.Mills says (21:50):

We do have to things to measure loft/lie and we use our eyes

 

David.Mills says (21:49):

I don't have reps but I do have a couple of people who carry my production line

 

David.Mills says (21:49):

Having a good rep in a good part of the country woud be good but we haven't had time to work on it.

 

bjgolf says to (21:49):

Not trying to compare you to Cameron, however if you know how he makes "tour" versions of putters, is that the same for you, or are all your putters the same?

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:49):

a better question would be what do you think of insterts?

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:50):

who?

 

cameronaddicted says to (21:50):

with the double bend shaft in your head

 

 

BigBoo5 says to (21:50):

Do you have a website that has pictures of your line?

 

glenwayputters says to Gxgolfer (21:51):

www.tpmills.com

 

David.Mills says (21:51):

Tour putter and Retails. I take putter out on the tour. Some are modified production some are custom with unique neck or weight

 

trotgolfer says to David.Mills (21:51):

just on the mills web site www.tpmils.com and he does take paypal

 

David.Mills says (21:51):

They are alitlle different but that doesn't mean they are better

 

David.Mills says (21:51):

They are just customized to whatever player wants it to look like

 

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:51):

ever thought of producing a new etail line?

 

David.Mills says (21:52):

for example I don't have produciton plumbers neck

 

Closetgolfboy says to (21:52):

Hello David, Do you prefer carbon steel or stainless?. Also I do not mean to be facetious but do you feel all 303 stainless is the same material no matter where it comes from? Thanks!!!!

IMAGOLFER says to David.Mills (21:52):

retail

 

David.Mills says (21:52):

Those are for Tour or special orders

 

cameronaddicted says to (21:52):

just like i cant make lie adjustments on putters on course with my feet hehehehe

 

David.Mills says (21:52):

Carbon is a different characteristics than Stainless under heat

 

cameronaddicted says to (21:52):

304

 

David.Mills says (21:52):

Carbon bends easier under heat. Stainles tends to collaplses

 

tnk210 says to (21:52):

Is there a place to view your different finishes?

 

David.Mills says (21:52):

You have to be more careful

 

David.Mills says (21:53):

One is not better than the other just different

 

David.Mills says (21:53):

Stainelss is a litttle easier to maintains

 

David.Mills says (21:53):

The website is the best place to see finishes

 

Golfchicago says to (21:53):

What are your long range goals?

 

David.Mills says (21:54):

My long range goals is to grow my production line. WIth top notch quality

 

David.Mills says (21:54):

I would like to attend more Tour events per year

 

Closetgolfboy says to (21:54):

Thanks David. I read that it is hard for certain finishes to adhere to stainless. True????

 

David.Mills says (21:54):

If I could attend more, I could kick up some dust

 

David.Mills says (21:55):

Maybe if you don't come out every week though, the Tour players are more interested

 

 

David.Mills says (21:55):

I havent' experiment with plating on top of stainless

 

David.Mills says (21:55):

Stainless is a rust prohibator

 

Gozz says to (21:55):

What PGA player are playing your product?

 

David.Mills says (21:55):

I haven't really experiment with plating on top of stainless because it would be too beneficial

 

David.Mills says (21:56):

I can give you list

 

David.Mills says (21:56):

Bo van pelt, Toms, Armour, Price, Houston, Sabatini

 

David.Mills says (21:56):

Reid, Ekker, Senior Tour is an opportunity I need to look into more

 

David.Mills says (21:57):

I think if I worked it more, it woudl be a great success

 

distantfromyou says to (21:57):

have no come across gauge design putters, and what do you think of them?

 

David.Mills says (21:57):

I don't known much about gauge design putters.

 

OakieISI says to (21:57):

Rory is using a TP Mills now?

 

David.Mills says (21:57):

I seen a few here and there

 

David.Mills says (21:57):

I haven't had the time to break one down, I know they are popular in Japan

 

OakieISI says to (21:57):

how do you not have a TP Mills in the hands of your college teamate Lowery?

 

IMAGOLFER says to (21:57):

You should really persue the Nationwide players

 

David.Mills says (21:58):

I don't know if Rory is but the last Golfworld said he switched an putted well

 

distantfromyou says to (21:58):

IMAGOLFER says to (21:59):

glenwayputters says to Gxgolfer (21:59):

David.Mills says (21:59):

He thinks he does but I need to run him out the shop

 

OakieISI says to (21:59):

David.Mills says (22:00):

I hope he will let me and mom retire when he plays golf

 

trotgolfer says to David.Mills (22:00):

distantfromyou says to (22:00):

IMAGOLFER says to (22:00):

lol

 

tnk210 says to (22:00):

Looking on the website, I see the gunblue finish only. Just trying to get ideas on what they look like in different finishes.

 

IMAGOLFER says to (22:00):

good idea

 

David.Mills says (22:00):

The 4:00 woudl be face balance

 

David.Mills says (22:00):

Its just personal preference

 

Closetgolfboy says to (22:00):

Hello again David, I know it is personal preference but I feel a heavie putter works well for me on fast greens. I use a 35" 360 gram putter and am considered a fine putter. Do you agree with the heavy putter and fast green philosophy???

 

David.Mills says (22:01):

You have to go to the putters that have been sold and you can see different finishes

 

David.Mills says (22:01):

I thing there are plus and minuse to a heavy putter

 

David.Mills says (22:01):

It tracks good

 

David.Mills says (22:01):

It starts and stay in motion but some people have problems gauging distances

 

David.Mills says (22:02):

Controlling speed sometimes

 

tnk210 says to (22:02):

Got it, thanks!

 

David.Mills says (22:02):

Its up to the person to control

 

David.Mills says (22:02):

IT tracks real good but have to balance with feel

 

David.Mills says (22:02):

heavy putter will give you a good line but distance tends to not do so well

 

Golfchicago says to (22:02):

What is the best way to contact you for ordering a putter?

 

David.Mills says (22:03):

Best way is email to me your request

 

David.Mills says (22:03):

I narrow down to what works and then we follow up with a phone conversation

 

David.Mills says (22:03):

[email protected]

 

David.Mills says (22:03):

is my email

 

IMAGOLFER says to (22:04):

Are you considering becoming a regular on our site here?

 

distantfromyou says to (22:04):

do questions about tour players and putters and golf ever bore you. i mean, do you find yourself playing a round and wish you weren't because of the questions? do people even know who you are?

 

David.Mills says (22:04):

I have not been on the site yet but, I have heard alot of great things about it.

 

David.Mills says (22:05):

I am afraid I would like it too much and never get clubs made

 

David.Mills says (22:05):

Maybe next time we can do more topics about MOI and design.

 

David.Mills says (22:05):

topics

 

IMAGOLFER says to (22:05):

that is a posibility

 

OakieISI says to (22:06):

david - it is the perfect spot to look at while enjoying your morning coffee...

 

David.Mills says (22:06):

Well, the people who really know putter on and off know who I am

 

IMAGOLFER says to (22:06):

have you thought about a large high MOI mallet design?

 

Closetgolfboy says to (22:06):

Hello again David, do you feel once you have mastered the game that putting is 90% psychological as you hear for the total golf game. I also feel that being a feel putter is the best way to putt. Do you agree?

 

David.Mills says (22:06):

But generally a person who know the white hot, doesn't know who I am

 

David.Mills says (22:06):

I would agree with that

 

David.Mills says (22:07):

You never master your stroke like the golf swing

 

 

David.Mills says (22:07):

good putters know there stroke then its mental and confidence

 

David.Mills says (22:07):

I think feel is the best way to putt

 

bjgolf says to (22:07):

What is your advice to an aspring highschool golfer

 

IMAGOLFER says to (22:07):

yeah look at Vijay {shocked_smiley}

David.Mills says (22:08):

You have to have some basic fundamentals but the great putters are all feel putters

 

David.Mills says (22:08):

Depends what he wants to go and do

 

David.Mills says (22:08):

Golf is a great game but it depends what you want to do

 

David.Mills says (22:08):

A better than avg player can help you on and off the course

 

Golfchicago says to (22:09):

Guys Golfwrx would like to thank David Mills for spending time with us. The session is over. Thank you to everyone for for questions. David will visist with us again soon.

 

David.Mills says (22:09):

:) Well done Golfwrx..... that was great! It's things like this that differentiates WRX from others.

 

You should feel very proud!...... :cheesy:

 

 

David really enjoyed last night and is looking forward to sharing more and more with the folks on this site. He and I will be writing some articles about design and various other putter subjects, so please feel free to PM me with subjects that you are interested in and I will be sure to get David to comment.

 

Thanks for making last night fun!!!

Thanks for putting this together Frank. Very, very impressive...looks like I just found something for my wife to get me for Christmas!

Ryan,

 

Actually I just helped with the moderating on this one. The special thanks goes to glenwayptters and to Gxgolfer for their hookup. That is what makes this site so special. There are a lot of people here that just want a great site and want to have the best experience in the world. It is not always about the money or the power a lot of times it is about sharing. That is a gift and there are a lot of us here that understand that.

VERY good GC.......MANY thanks for the Mills "chat".......

 

I've owned numerous Mills originals over the years and they are second to NONE IMOP.......kinda' makes me mad that "Xerox" gets so much credit when he simply copied others designs.......people like David's dad, etc. REALLY deserve MORE credit.........sure good to see David carrying on his Dad's company!

Slice, I agree. I used to own a few mills putters. They were awesome. It might be time for me to revisit them!

Man GC, you cannot go wrong......I don't mean to "diss" Cameron's, hell I'm putting with a "modified" one myself right now (when I get to play....hehe), but the stuff that Mills makes are TRULY "works of art" and all eminated from T.P.'s mind and NOT from copying somebody elses designs. One other thing, the shafts that are in my older Mills putters feel sooooo good......you can really "feel" the head release.......rock it back, rock it through, and just "feeeeel" the clubhead release.......SOLID! :)
