TP Mills Putter
My putting went bad last week so I thought I'd try a different putter just to shake the brain up a little. I spied this stick on ebay and won it.

I'll probably play with it when it first arrives then restore it when I get a chance.

Well it jsut turned up. It's in better condition than the pictures show (the guy gave it a buff) the alignment point is hard to see but that will not be an issue once I have refinished it.

 

It does feel better than all the putters I tried yesterday at the putting green.

 

Nice weight and super feel.

 

I dont like the corded grip but will try and get another one to put on if I ever stop playing with it.

 

Jay do the Mills company make an equivelent to this putter now?

Actually I'm not sure how well this will refinish, it's got some dings on the face and I dont have access to a milling machine right now.

 

hmmm perhaps I'll just use it as it is.

if you don't have a grinder or a shaper they are impossible to refinish. they have a "nickel" type finish on them, I can't remember what it is actually called and unless you get it all off, nothing will stick to it. David had one in the shop the other day that he just sent back to a guy because there is nothing you can do. If you grind it off, you will remove a lot of the weight of the head and that will just destroy the putter for practical use.

 

there isn't a putter made today similar to that one because of the neck. that neck is derived from a hand shaped "plumbers neck", you have to use some imagination to see it, but it was one of T.P.'s early attempts at a plumbers neck (there were no CNC machines in the shop back then and still aren't today)

 

great feeling putter, if you have a stamp kit, you punch the 0 back on top of it.

I have a grinder and a shaper it was the face milling I was concerned with. My friend has said I can make a few passes on his so I'll be OK.

 

The finish is almost entirely gone this is what makes the 0 hard to see on the top as the whole thing is shiny.

 

I'll try reverse playing it to see if the plate comes off, if not I'll give it a light coat of acid etch paint probably.

Personally, I'd just use it as is.

 

The money you would have to spend to get it restored is undoubtedly more than you paid for it, and you will not get it back. Whether David does it, or Tom Slighter, it is still going to be well over $100 for a putter that will never be worth that.

 

It costs the same to restore a $30 putter as it does a $700 putter.

 

But a slightly battered putter you use well is in many ways cooler than a pristine restored model.

 

Whilst I loved my TP Mills, I was a little embarassed to putt so badly with such a work of art. Throwing a handmade masterpiece at a buggy didn't feel right.

 

Fortunately, I now have a Cameron and given I feel Scotty is basically an over-hyped copier, I feel no compunction about hurling the putter at any tuft of grass that riles me.

 

The best thing is watching the expression on the faces of some of my playing partners who think Cameron abuse should be listed on the statutes of capital crimes.

 

Cheers

Steve you are right but I am going to do it myself so no cost really.

 

It's never going to to be in great condition but I just want it to not be so shiny :idhitit:

That mizuno you have is very similar to the one Jay posted a few days ago that was made for Bob Tway.... I believe it's headshape is called a #6... I was actually thinking about contacting David about making one very similar to that Mizuno for something else to look at besides the fleetwood.

I don't know that he will make one any time soon. I talked to him about it last week when I was with him and he didn't get really thrilled about it, because the neck is so hard to make, it takes about two hours by hand.

 

Start looking for a price increase on the handmades, as well. It is coming.

Well I'm pleased now, the steel is so soft it's very easy to work back into a decent shape. half hour with some 60 grit got the dings out and got rid of the rest of the coating. Hit a few lighter grades over for a polish and it's sitting in the paint booth waiting for a coating of some sort.

 

I might finish it off tomorrow :idhitit:
