    This guy is a total and complete joke. Copies Ping and calls it “His” and lives in the shadows of Scotty Cameron and others who are a success and made it in the industry. Has a huge chip on his shoulder and envies Scotty, Tyson, Bettinardi etc…

    Has never formed an original thought and consistently rips others ideas and claims them as his own.

    Embarrassment to the industry.

    Kevin comes across as a little bitter with the success of other putter makers (as he calls them) who jazz up existing putter models. I’m sure Kevin makes a great putter but aesthetically, his putters have conflicting lines and geometry.

    CNC milling is old technology. Kevin Burns may know a lot about milling putters, but that’s like knowing a whole lot about how to develop 35mm camera film when everyone’s cell phone has a digital camera in it.

    3D printing is the future.
