I know that there are some of you out there with the good fortune to have a Byron handmade putter, true one of kind pieces of art.  Here's the place for you to show off a little, tell us the story behind the creation, and if you still have it.

OK, show us what you've got.  ;D :popcorn:

I saw it this weekend and the pictures do not do the milling justice. 
The putter is gorgeous.

I made about 7-8 of those My-Day style hand mades a few years back.  I think if enough guys want them I could make a CNC version of it.

Byron, did you say a few years...? Hmmmm, it would probably remind you how old we're getting to actually remember how many years. I'm sorry, how old I'm getting. You and LaMont are still younguns.

I'm glad I hollered at him. I think he has more if he's willing to share... Bear?

I would be very excited about that - the My-Day, Laguna, BB5 is always a headshape in my gamer rotation.

I am no surfer, but how about the Byron Morgan Pipeline as a name?

:arg:

I don't know if it really is a thread jack since I started the thread, but what the heck!  ;)  If we are going to go "surf vernacular" for putter names here are a few old school ones that in addition to Pipeline would make for great putter model names IMO:

The Glide:  A spiritual place when everything seems to be in synch...the wave, the surfer and the board are one entity. When a surfer achieves this he's said to have the...glide. (my personal favorite  8))

Twinzer:  A four fin surfboard, two normal size fins with two smaller fins a few inches outside and forward.

Cooleo: Someone or something that is totally cool.

Karma:  Your inner spirit. Your Chi, Bruddah. It makes surfing and riding what the ocean has to offer such a life enhancing experience.

The Landlord: aka shark, great white, the man in the grey suit.

Squareular: Something that's totally cool.

BTW, I am no surfer, or more appropriately I'd be called a Land Shark, but I know how to find stuff on the internet.  :laugh:  8)

nvgolfdude - to add to your self threadjack:  He could also name them for SoCal surf spots--Like Trestles, Sandspit, Salt Creek, Old Man's, Jug Handle, Lunada, Zuma, Doheny, the Wedge, etc.

Salt Creek was a mainstay when I lived in Laguna Hills. I'd have to consider buying that one.

Welded across the flange, welded sight dot, awesome stamping, mill marks showing off, matching grip and matching HC!  That is the coolest putter in the world.

Where's Villadsen's handmade?  ???

I have recently acquired a Byron Morgan Handmade from Drewspin but I have not yet seen it in person. As a matter of fact the putter is on its way to LaMont Mann in Arizona for a quick adjustment of the lie (if all goes according to plan :welder:) before making a trip to the European continent.

Unfortunately being a second hand putter I haven't got a great story about the origin and the making of - but I am sure I will enjoy gaming it on a regular basis when it gets here... it was one of those situations where I saw the putter and just had to buy it - same story with the MannKrafted 007 that LaMont has made for me  ;D

The putter can be seen here: http://www.puttertalk.com/community/index.php/topic,13918.0.html

Steffen's handmade was made by Byron for a golf pro on Cape Cod.  He used it as his gamer for a while, and he was inspired by it to start making his own hand made putters.

It's a very nice hand made putter that deserves to be played and not sit on a shelf.

Thank you for the information guys.
Always nice to get a bit of background info. I can't wait to get my hands on the Byron Morgan Handmade and give it a roll. Hopefully everything turns out great with regards to the adjustment of the lie - but should the hosel break during the adjustment (God forbid) I am sure it will get a total renovation including a new finish etc.

I will be sure to post a bit when the putter is in my hands - but trying to cut a bit of cost I am having a friend taking it home from US to Denmark in August if I can wait that long LOL!

Rookie question: What is the name for the headshape of my handmade (and ashmarcs I suppose)? I know some of my playing partners will ask - so might as well be prepared ;)

Steffen,
I don't believe your handmade necessarily has a name distinction.  It is a blade, similar to Byron's MO models, but not exactly like any of them.
I would say it might be considered an "MO Variant", but stand to be corrected if anyone has a better interpretation to offer.

LaMont,
Thank you for the info.
It seems like a fair explanation and not everything in this world HAS to have a name... either way I know I will enjoy gaming the Handmade when it gets to Denmark.
Thanks again.

I'd just call it a Byron Morgan handmade. I think that alone means one of a kind because no two handmades are alike.

If I owned that beauty and someone asked me what's the model name I feel the putter deserves an introduction worthy of its making. I'd say something like, "It's a Byron Morgan handmade with a welded neck and xxxxx finish."

You are absolutely right, finalist.

I will be sure to prepare a short introduction speech to anyone interested... and by the look of the pictures quite a few will be.

In my pursuit of knowledge and perhaps lack of wisdom I just reckoned that the headshape (which I obviously like a lot) would have a name of some sort - that not being the case is just another box checked for me - not a problem at all.

It seems however more often the case than not that a certain headshape actually comes with a name - but no biggie; "Byron Morgan Handmade with a welded neck and Black Star finish" it is...

Thank you for the input.
