Someone hands you a $1,500 Check…

Recommended Posts

If someone gave you a $1,500 check to buy a putter what would you get with it? A $40 used odyssey and pocket the rest, possibly for lessons? A custom Olson, Byron, Mannkrafted? Second hand Hive Bettinardi? I hate what if questions but some buddies and I ran this scenario and thought it was an interesting topic

 

What does everyone think?

Olson does good work and I am very happy with mine so I would definitely look to have another one.

 

However, I would go with an Artisan first because they look very clean or another KB 9305 one piece but a standard plumber neck. 
 

Also would consider Cody James.

Also @agood3putt to make these more fun it's always good to say "what you don't spend you can't keep".

I'd think about it after the check cleared. 😄  That said my last Scotty Newport was maybe $300-350 about six years ago.  Have putters prices risen that much?  Plus $1500 seems silly for any amateur golfer.  My last putter purchase was two weeks ago.  $130 for an old Ping Scottsdale Anser Beryllium Nickel in excellent shape.  I fouled up years ago trading in my new one (cost about $70 then).  Holding on to this one.  Works great!

I'd get me one of the new Scotty Champions Choice and then go and test it out at pebble and spyglass.  I'd have to eat ramen cause I'm pretty sure that would take up the whole budget but it'd be worth it

Haha agreed

I'd have a Lajosi made, and get a new driver to go with it.

I have no idea how I forgot MackMade but his are at 775 right now so my 2 putters would be a MackMade and a CMD if I did two, but the others stand.

I have a plenty of $25 to $350 putters that are great at missing putts, so I think I'm set.

 

Maybe spend $100 on a fitting, spend some on getting them adjusted as a result of the fitting.

 

Pocket the remainder or buy some drivers I won't be able to hit straight, or some blades to hit poorly..

 

The possibilities are endless!

What does everyone think? 

I'd send both of my Anser Xs off to PING for spa treatments: tungsten weights, sound slots, new/improved putter-specific shafts, face milling, the works.  Whatever was left over I'd sink into some cool headcovers...

Duh. I would hire a cheap detective for $1200, have him find Opinder, then pay Opinder the leftover $300 to make me one of his putters. 

 

I miss seeing his posts
