What exactly am I looking at here?
« on: June 24, 2016, 08:25:00 PM »
I'm not sure exactly what this is, or isn't.  :-\   But I'd appreciate you telling me that someone just went crazy with a welder and a stamper or something else. 

One of the more amazing "bettinardi" putters I've ever seen. :o   If a PT member is listing this one, maybe a story about it would help me.

I saw that too...judging by the price, it looks like someone trying to pass something off on someone.  No way that came out of studio b

The answer to your question has two possible answers.

1: a hack job
2: an abortion

But...I'd imagine that there are not a whole lot of Damascus Swan Necks laying around...so we think he cut the neck off of an actual Damascus????

I think the old car restorers expression explains this one nicely
