Custom Putters | You Learn Something Every Day
I was setting up to take portraits of the 2018 World Long Drive competitors in Oklahoma and needed to test my lighting. A friend said “You should take a few photos of Mike’s putters that he made. They’re in that case over there.” I responded “You mean he makes his own putters?” Military veterans Mike Adcock and business partner Phil Holt design and produce their line of MP Putters with the help of a CNC milling machine, right in Texas.
I was fascinated by the process. This led me down a rabbit hole of discovering hand made putters. I read up about guys like TP Mills, Karsten Solheim, Tad Moore, Robert Bettinardi and Scotty Cameron. I could imagine them in their garages, basements or shops working with steel experimenting with angles, lofts, weight, and material.
I then found some new guys on the block --MP Putters-- and wrote to them on Instagram. They’re following in the footsteps of the greats and carving their own path. My original photography idea involved flowers, but I think the pythons work better. Thank you to all these wonderful putter makers. Give them a follow!
Many thanks to Rose Reptiles in Orlando, Florida!
