You'd have to watch out for Pac-Man all the time, but that's a nice looking putter.

Did LaMont pave the way with his white polymer finish putters?

There are a bunch of pictures of these from Quail Hollow over on golfwrx. They certainly will be highly visible for marketing purposes.

They did an all white tm bag for the practice greens.  Pretty slick.

Here is the link - and yes I agree the bag is very nice.  The white is on blade style putters too not just mallets.

Anyone have the MacGregor ZT Response that was used in his 1986 Masters win? ;D

I could be wrong, but I don't think these would be easy on the eyes in the bright sun.  It would be even worse if the greens had been sanded.  White ball, white putter, white green.  Not for me.

Bettinardi did a white finish back in 2004 for Japan. Gary has one of the prototypes.

Saw Justin Rose using this at The Players yesterday...didn't see him make any putts.  Haven't decided if I like the look yet, but I like the shape.

Coors made a white ceramic putter a few years ago.

Picked one up and so far I really like it.  Sets up good and has a nice feel to it.  Different than many of their other inserts as it is a bit firmer to me.

I putted with one at Torrey today, I wish it had the AGSI C insert. I wanted something a little softer.

Which models had the AGSI C insert?

Spider Vicino.

I picked one of these up the other day and so far it is a nice putter.  The insert does feel pretty soft using a Callaway Tour i and the Nike tour ball.

I am not a big fan of mallet putters first off and when i saw this thing in person i  was skeptical to say the least. almost looks like a kiddie putter at first. But like any other putter i gave it a roll and was actually quite surprised! so surprised in fact that i picked one up and put it in my bag for now. used it for one round so far and although the course we played has horrible, slow greens, i had 30 putts and did make about a 20 ft eagle with it from the fringe. The new black insert they are using feels better to me then the red AGSI insert from before. i didn't find the white to be distracting at all and did not notice any glare from the sun. Give em a shot though. you might end up likin it like i did.
