  1. Hi Tom,

    My son and I have been long time users of your equipment, and I’ve been building clubs for most of my life. I’m really interested in the new line of putters you have coming out in the Spring I’m told. Specifically, I’m hoping to see a heel shafted mid-mallet with toe hang such as Taylormade’s Balboa. Is there any chance something like this is coming? Thank you so much for what you do. Take care.

    • Phil:

      Thanks so much for your kind words and for your support over the years. I really do appreciate that. I am sorry but I have no idea what the specs or toe hang condition for the TM Balboa putter would be. I don’t have access to other companies’ clubs and I don’t seek out or acquire any clubs from any other company. I also do not personally feel that toe hang has any significant effect on putting, or at least in all my years of head design work I have never seen any definitive data nor seen anything in my testing work that indicates there is any importance to it in the execution of the puttting stroke. I have thus felt it has become more of a “power of suggestion” thing that then falls into the category of personal preference. I am sorry if this flies in the face of what you believe but this is just what I have seen in my years of work in putter design and fitting analysis.

      Thanks again and the very best to you and your son in this great game,
      TOM

  2. Tom,
    I really enjoy your independent thinking.

    Re: Putter head weighting. For your next design effort, would it be possible to provide a shallow (1/16″ or so), rectangular pocket on the sole of the putter that the lead tape guys like myself (and you) would have an out of sight place to add lead tape without it being seen while over the putt?

    Also, I find many putters have such a flat sole that putting on even moderate side-slope putts requires hovering the putter head. I have resorted to epoxying a carrage bolt head to the bottom pivot point to eliminate the issue. Further, it also better positions the horizontal face center line close to the center of the ball, and also makes the club more scuff-proof.

      I have much preferred to design a weight chamber/port on putters occasionally that would be covered by a stick on medallion cover as a means to change headweight. I did not do this on the S2R’s because those I did some time ago and because most heel/toe putter models do not lend themselves well to a chamber big enough to accept weight disks. I’ll think about it though. And thanks so much for your interest,

      TOM

    • Tom,
      thanks for your reply.

      A weight chamber often takes up a lot of volume. Having a shallow, but wide/long pocket that could hold a few layers of lead tape somewhat protected would be easy to do on a new model. I have a couple of the old Nicklaus 1986 putters, and I have added some tape in the pocket behind the face, almost out of sight. Another of the Nicklaus putters had hollow, open cavities on the back at heel and toe, which I have poured lead into to adjust weight.

      I hear you and I understand your personal preference for this. But whenever I design any head I need to consider what would and would not make it more or less appealing to the majority of players and clubmakers. An empty type recession on the sole that is large enough to accept 10-20g of lead tape would be unsightly to a lot of players, IMO from 30+ years of designing heads. In my experience the vast number of players who would choose to use lead tape on a putter head instead of lead powder down the shaft held with a cork would be fine with having the tape be seen on the flange of the head or even the sole, placed so the tape runs from face to back. It won’t hang up the stroke, I have done this lots of time in testing projects.

  3. Hi Tom,

    Just a question about putter head care. Aside from soap and water, do you have any recommendations as to maintaining the best look/care of the S2R series putter heads?

    I know there are a any number of products in the marketplace, but would very much appreciate your thoughts/input.

    Thanks,
    Lee

    • LEE

      No, just plain old soapy water followed by drying the head off completely is all you need. Never use any types of brushes or abrasives whatosoever.

  4. Mr. Wishon –

    I am a long time user (and admirer) of your designs – going back to dynacraft.

    I am left-handed . Do you, currently, have any left-handed putter offerings? Please excuse me if I am reading the chart incorrectly.

    Thanks for all of your help.

    Best,
    Danny

    • Thanks very much Danny, I really appreciate that very much. It’s been a few years since the Dynacraft days and it is nice of you to have followed what I have been doing all these years. Left hand offerings have always been a painful part of my work because what I can do in LH is always a cold hard fact of business. Tooling, development and inventory costs are the same for a RH and LH version of a model so our ability to do LH models depends entirely on demand. Never in my 31 yrs of designing clubheads have I ever seen a LH version of a model sell more than 8% of what it will in the RH version. So if a model is only moderately successful in RH, it can never be added in a LH version.

      In putters it is probably the worst situation of all the clubhead models because component putter heads even in RH do not sell in much of a demand. Many clubmakers who custom fit and custom build many drivers, sets of woods, sets of irons and wedges do not even offer custom fit putters because they are so used to so many golfers buying the putters that are most popular among the tour players. I am sorry, we used to have the S2R model 1 in LH but even that putter model just did not generate enough demand to merit being able to keep the LH version in stock. I will be working on a new line of putter heads for 2019 and I am going to try to figure out a way to do it so that one or more of the RH models could actually be used in a LH assembly without having to separately tool up and inventory a LH version.

      Thanks again for your support, I really do appreciate it very much !
      TOM
