« on: May 16, 2007, 01:37:28 PM »
Just wanted to let everyone know, you are welcome to be a part of our group.  We look forward to more and more folks coming in and learning and teaching about the rich history of the T.P. Mills Co.

We have been in existence for more than a year and a half on the Yahoo Groups, but are glad to make our new home here, where it will be much easier to share our love for the brand.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact myself, Jim Gallagher or Paul Constantine.

Thanks

Jay

Welcome Jay, and the rest of the Yahoo Group.

I'm glad we can finally let everyone know about this. We've been working on it for a few months, and I think the end result is going to be just fantastic.

If any of you have any questions, fire away...we're all here to help.

I got the email from the Yahoo Group earlier today and thought it was going to be the "same old" PutterTalk... ;)

Love the new look... and can't wait to see the gallery and other new features.

...and the main PutterTalk site is going to change in the next few weeks, at that point we'll really start working on a unique experience for the sub-boards.

Check your email for news about that...in about 5min. ;D

Ahhh...glad the group found its way here. I don't like the layout of Yahoo and therefore didn't visit often.

Hi, I'm Morris - I'm an equal opportunity putter addict who loves the quality the TP Mills brand brings to the table.

I don't know David, Jay or Paul very well, and I got started on golf way after I ever heard of TP.  Just from what I've read, and based on phone communication with Jay and David, I think they embody the very best of what TP had to teach - both about golf and life. 

I would venture to guess that David is very much TP's son in spirit, and I say that only with respect.  Also, since we all try to work with those people who are most similar to us in nature, it's no surprise that David works with guys like Jay and Paul.

Here's to the continuing success of TP Mills putters!

Welcome to T.P. Mills fans everywhere!  Have become one myself, and can't wait to try out my new #1 proto with welded plumber's neck and snow.  Very cool!

Best to Jay, Paul, Jim and of course David!

I tried to get on TV yesterday at the AT&T because I was wearing my T.P. Mills hat.  I tried to stand behind Zach Johnson on the driving range while he was keeping loose waiting to see if he was in a playoff.  I don't know if I made it or not.  But what a great tournament to watch!

Is there a registration/sign up section for the putter club? It's entirely possible i'm just a doofus and completely missed it!

I just got my very first Mills from one of the good guys on here, a pro series One, and it is incredible!
I'm pretty sure that as funds allow, I'll be adding a couple more at least. I love the looks of the softail too.

Thanks guys,

Liam.

Thanks guys. I'm in!   :w00t:   Nice to finally broaden the horizons too.

Tom,  i'm pretty sure that ONE is 'the one'!! It's a beauty.

It's weird though, I've tried Stainless from other manufacturers and didn't really 'get' the feel, but this is....very very nice! I imagine the carbon versions must really be like butter.  :)

I think the appropriate phrase is 'hook, line and sinker' ! lol

It's not your imagination.  David uses a softer grade of stainless -- 304, I think, than the usual 303 used by most others. 

And yes, the carbon is even softer.

Love my woodie...aka Mr. Mills...but black oxide coming off - I have been using an auto polish (2000) which works for 2-3 rounds if the greens are dry.  Any suggestions for protecting the shiny surface?

Is the carbon used by Mills softer than that used by SC for example. I have a couple of GB Camerons that are pretty nice feeling, but the Mills One Stainless I have seems as 'buttery' as those and I just wondered if the carbon version Mills will be softer still.

jr, thanks for the thread link regarding rust protection too. Once it sets in it's pretty ugly stuff!

According to the Scotty Cameron Japan Museum owner, who is as close to Scotty and his work as anyone can be, the stainless that is used for the OTR and Tour stainless, non GSS putters, is made from recycled knives and forks. I am not kidding, this was the official position or statement made by the Japan distributor for or on behalf of the Studio.

So...I assume the Mills carbons will be softer then!   lol  Thats some statement to release!!

Thanks for the responses guys. The only 'specialist' putters I've owned are Camerons so thats all I have for comparisons. Dont get me wrong, I still really like the feel I get from those GB's and will always keep 'em, I just wondered how the feel of the Mills carbons compared to those of SC. I know too though that feel is such a subjective thing and we all like different things.

I guess I'll have to get me a carbon Mills and see for myself. If they are even a touch softer than the Mills stainless, well then it's game over for me! lol

Who am I kidding....I'm hooked already!

I believe those Black Oxide Camerons were actually milled by RJB.

The ones prior to around 1998 were milled by RJB. Current Cameron's are milled at a third party shop that does contract work. Some of the putters from the early 2000's were "made" in China. The Japan museum came about around 3 years ago and the statement they made clarifying the difference in metal used in the standard stainless Cameron's and the GSS Cameron's was made just last year so it was in reference to putters that are currently being made by Cameron/Acushnet.

For lack of a better place, I posted this here.

I know lots of other Putter Company clubs have been having gatherings (Bettinardi, Byron)..  Any plans for TP Mills to ever have a social or gathering?  I would LOVE to play golf and discuss/gain knowledge about Mills putters from other people who game and love Mills putters..

If not, do any Mills collectors/gamers live in the Los Angeles area?
