Very carefully...

Oddly enough, that putter does not appear to be the old GSS NP2 that he had tungsten weights added to it.

Sound slot that was welded and lead tape?

I thought about welding up the sound slot in my putter. Decided against it since I'm not a steady eddy. Might consider looking into inserting a plastic though.

Side note- I'm shocked he jumped to the 917 driver so fast. Wonder how good the numbers were!

The welding is to help the putter sit more "square" at address. He just added lead tape to make it even heavier. Probably a 330g head with 5-10g of welding plus another 10g of lead tape to get it around 350g.

I seem to remember Brad Faxon's putter have a similar weld line for that reason.  Beautiful putter regardless.

That putter! It clearly works for him but you get the feeling that something which looks like that could end up in a charity shop and ignored until someone who realises it is a Scotty.

I wonder why they didn't grind the weld flat? I know he's a seasoned pro, but anything on the bottom of the putter near the face that protrudes is asking for trouble. At least I would assume so.

Also, what is the marking at the top of the neck on his putter?  It looks like the head snapped and was re-attached.

Most likely a mark left by the bending bar when the putter was bent to adjust loft/lie

The weld on the sole of the putter is a simple fix to a putter that sits closed to a players' eye at address.  Faxon had the same weld on his and there's a few others out there too.  After adjusting the hosel to a players loft and lie sometime the putter just doesn't look right to players... And they certainly don't want a putter to look closed!

Great bag of clubs, excellent golfer.  Love the wedge system as well, keeps it simple there.
