This has to be my all time favorite putter. I wish I had one.

Todd has one for sale - and a variation of it as well for some PGA Championship putter.

Not a fan of the PGA to much going on on the sole. You should buy it for the 10K he has it listed for :P

I've never seen that Bett before.  I'd seen the 44, but that one right there I think looks a little nicer.

How many Betts are you up to now Jimmy?

HOLY CRAP.....  How do you do the drooling smiley.  Never seen a Bettinardi with proto stamped on the neck or the back left plain. 

Those last two pics, is that one going to be a straight collector wall hanger, or are you going to roll it.  I saw one like that I think on Todds site :):):)

Very Very Nice

You might just convice me to get into Bettinardi after all, though there are still a few questions I have :):):)

Thanks for the Pics :):):)

Chris...I bought my first Bettinardi 10 years ago and haven't stopped yet :) I don't think I have any wall hangers...eventually they all make it to the course. You can PM me anytime you know that.

I don't know if I could get myself to game that .38 putter, even once.  That thing is just beautifull.  One day you'll have to send me pics of your Betts :):):)

You've convinced me to get at least 1 in the next year maybe more, but for sure tour issue as I love the stampings :):):)

They have also got some really sweet headcovers :)

This could be bad.... LOL

Chris - if you're going to get a Bettinardi, get a Tour Bettinardi. As you know, Cameron Tour putters hold their value even if you game them. Same holds true for the Tour Bettinardi stuff. I have several Bettinardi's and no matter what the value...$1000 or $5000 I game them. J.A.T.

Was at the studio yesterday to visit Ben and drop of a putter head to get a makeover. There was a 38 special behind the glass...pretty sure I left a face print :P He also had a head similar o the BB5 in another finish :)
