||No Name Putter
||This blade has a look similar
to the Wilson 8800 series except that there is no flange
on the back side...therefore it can be used righty or
lefty. It has four stars on the bottom of the blade.
This putter was my first golf club and was given to me for
my birthday in 1964. It is a useless piece of junk.
||Looks similar to a Acushnet
Bulls Eye Putter. Purchased from the Dahlkemper
Catalog showroom on Peach Street. It is junk and is
presently at my father's house where it occupies a
hallowed place in his parlor room along with the electric
||This certified piece of junk
has a ultra cool chrome finish and a equally ultra cool
two tone flange on the back of the blade that could conceivably
pick up a missed putt when correctly angled. It was
purchased from the George Munro Pro Shop at Glenwood Golf
Club. The putter head had a tendency to loosen after
repeated impacts with the earth after missed putts and
there is a big gouge across the face from a spike.
||Acushnet Bullseye with Paddle
||The blade has a code "HB
5 M S" This stood for Heavy Blade, 35 inch,
and...I do not know what else. This putter was given
to the Raptor by The Behrend College Men's Golf Coach, Ed
Onorato. Probably because I was the worst putter on
||Obviously a great
putter. Ideal for sweeping missed putts up using
back of flange.
||Cobra Classic CNC Milled
||Purchased after watching
Loren Roberts miss his 4 footer in the 1994 US Open at
Oakmont. The Raptor immediately cut the putter down
from 35 to 32 inches which effectively ruined it.
The Raptor never actually made a putt with what was
actually a very nice putter.
||Never Compromise Z1 Alpha
||Purchased from LVCC Assistant
Pro Rich Rocky. A nice putter that The raptor again
cut down to 32". The were probably 2 or 3 putts made
with this blade
||Odyssey DF 550
||This ultra cool putter was
popularized by Lee Janzen during his glory years.
Actually Lee seems to be still using it. The
Raptor's blade was purchased from a club
warehouse...can't remember which one. The
Raptor had excellent success with this putter, even though
he cut it down to 32"
||Odyssey 2 Ball with SRT
||SRT stands for Saturn Ring
Technology. This putter was special ordered from Pro
Golf after the Raptor cashed in all of the junk drivers
sitting in the basement. The Raptor has had good success
with this putter during it's limited time in the bag.
||The Raptor tried having a
simple long wand putter built by the Master Craftsman
which was awful. It was quickly shelved after one
||Odyssey DF 550
||It has been back to the blade
after a short experiment with the two-ball. The
putting has improved and I can one again pull the ball out
of the cup with the toe of the putter...saves on the back
