Any history on this US Royal putter?
« on: July 11, 2017, 11:19:29 AM »
Hey everyone!

Lurked around here for a while and figured I'd make an account so I can get some more information and advice on refinishing old putters and learning the history of them!

I got this putter about 4-5 months ago at a thrift store and it was super worn out and had a patina that was hideous, so I took some time to get the deep gouges out and shine it up a bit. It's a work in progress but I'm happy with it so far.

Anywho, it's a US royal LPF putter. I found a few bits of info through Google and this board, but still not much of a history.

Also, what would you recommend for finish on  it? I thought mirror at first but obviously that wouldn't be great for putting.. Maybe mirror top and face and matte back?

Thanks!

Personally, I wouldn't do anything more to that putter. Let it develop its natural patina.

Sorry, can't help on its history.

Agree with both.    Royal went out of business  in the early 80's if I recall.   Made decent clubs and balls for a long time.
By the font, I would guess that's from the 60's.

leave it as is  :)
