Every year at the PGA Show you can count on some madness.
Every Thursday at 8 a.m. for years there is a line of buyers ready to pull the trigger on putters made by Scotty Cameron at Jim Butler’s “Table Rock Golf” booth, where he and his family manage one of the biggest putter spectacles on earth.
Just like at you local deli counter, you have to draw a number to get in line to buy a putter that can cost as much as $20,000.
I was let in early to take photos and Jim Butler said, “You have 8 more minutes before you have to leave. That is when we will let in five customers at a time.”
Scotty Cameron makes garage putters for a few sellers in the world and Table Rock Golf is one. Every year Jim Butler orchestrates a masterpiece of putter madness for the first two to three hours of the PGA Merchandise Show, where buyers from around the world come to feed on the rare garage putter availability.
Only by watching this from a distance can you see the true genius of Scotty Cameron and what his last 20 plus years has created. The pace of this booth and the stress on the faces of the buyers waiting in line as they make split decisions that can cost from $900 to $20,000.00 per putter makes for great theater.
Below are photos of rarest of the rare putters at the Table Rock booth. Thanks for the energy, Jim and family. Thanks for the passion of all you putter collectors, and most importantly, thank you to Scotty Cameron for leading the way and creating this market through your passion and creativity.
