Tom Slighter has a new golf partnership.
« on: August 18, 2018, 06:16:35 PM »
I understand he was going to retire since he has had a full time job while doing putter restoration and custom putter work. It seems he partnered with someone and together they are starting a putter company. I have one of his new putters, an initial run of 50, on the way. Putter #1. Very interesting story on these and I was just in the right place at the right time. It's an honor for me to get this amazing putter and I thank Tom and Co. The face is a bit different on mine.  :)

Wow, that brilliant.
We'll get to see some more grwt stuff from Tom, I'm sure


And the face on that mallet looks like it would be super soft sounding.
Not too sure how it'd affect the roll, but man does it look cool!

The face on the one I am getting is hand stitched by Tom. :-)

Good to see all this.  Tom has always done excellent work for me.  Always loved his "black thunder" finish.....

The putter arrived today and I think Tom has a hit on his hands. It putts well, very good balance and feel. It seems to have a nice stable head with this design.  :)

I sent it back to Tom to have the face drilled or milled, whatever. It should look just like the first pictures with the holes. I hope to have it back in a week or two.

I received the putter back from having the holes drilled in the face. They feel great as does the whole putter. I seem to putt very well with it so far. Thanks to Tom Slighter &Co.  :)
