Hi again I forgot to inform that the said putter is inscriber with, on the back at the top the initials "BJ" lower on left side is "MATCHED PUTTER 9" central is "A W BLACK SELECTED RMG" and on the right side is "SPECIAL". Any comments anyone.

I have a putter head which originally had a wooden shaft which my father in his younger days used often. He eventually gave the club to me and I have added a metal shaft. My father was not a funny man in many ways so when, on receiving the putter, I asked him if it was pre war to which he replied " which war".

The putter in my bag is a 1903 Schenectady with hickory shaft. It has so much experience I never miss my putts.

I still have a set of Burke Punch Irons 2-pw and a fiberglass shafted pw from Burke PGA.
Persimmon head Burke Bomber and 2,3,4,woods as well. I had but sold an aluminum shafted Burke Bomber driver. I should have kept it. Plus Ote Crispin hickory shaft putters 3 of them and a Burke 10 iron (putter).

that ping 1-a was the greatest putter, used it for years until one day the shaft came loose within the head. not broken or separated, just loose. every kind of glue, even a bb inserted through a hole drilled in the bottom of the head to force the shaft to widen, failed to take for more than a few rounds.
went looking for it more years later and the wife said, “that old thing, i threw it out, you never used it anyway.” love conquered all, but it was in balance there for a few minutes.

My TP Mills #4 putter from 1981 has served me well for 40 years. I also have a TP Mills made by Mizuno (the #4 is a Spalding) which is very good on mishits. It looks like a cross between my #4 and a PING Anser 2. TP Mills are milled clubs and were considered the Camerons of their day.

I think I'll always have a club in the bag that most would consider nostalgic. Every now & again I'll pull my "John Reuter Acushnet Bullseye putter" out of storage and give it a spin. I recall picking it up for $15 in a pawn shop in the mid 1980's. I used it for years until I replaced it with an Odyssey 2 ball putter I won in a tournament in 2003. I still use that 24 year old Odyssey putter every round.

I learned early on that I couldn't hit long (3, 4 or 5 irons) irons worth a crap, so I have a fondness for 7 woods. I still to this day carry 2 of them in the bag. They are my "money" clubs. The first one is a Callaway Great Big Bertha Steelhead 7 wood with a firm flex graphite shaft I bought off a golf buddy for $100 around 2001. It's my club of choice for those 186-200 yard shots. My second 7 wood is a Top Flite Intimidator Titanium 400 with a regular graphite shaft. I pull it out of the bag when I need to make those 170-185 yard shots.

I have yet to find a hybrid iron or club that can replace my two 7 woods. There's a saying that still rings true to this day, "if it's not broken, don't fix it".

Tim, I have to laugh, as I had the same r540 with the Grafalloy Blue ys7+. It took years before I found newer clubs on the market that could make a difference in my total carry off the tee while keeping me in the fairway.

Still have my Acushnet Bullseye Wide Flange, 34-inch from the 1970s, regripped to a medium oversize. I was putting great with it a few years ago, then it went sour and I started trying many different ones (had a friend with over a dozen in his collection). Currently doing pretty well with an Odyssey Metal-X, but am always tempted to go back to the Bullseye after a couple bad putting rounds.

I’m still using the putter Dad handed down to me 45 yrs ago. Mcgregor 100gp brass with nickel plate toe and heel. I took some early ribbing on league, but not much lately lol. It does the same thing every club in my bag does- whatever I make it do. It also makes a great lefty club when I need one.
