So a $400 otr putter isn’t a good value but a $2000+ Tour Scotty is?? How does that work?
I think it’s the special editions, Tour stuff, etc that are over priced. And headcovers. But $400 for an otr, that’s a fine value in my mind. Yeah, it’s more than some but whatever. They look nice, are high quality, and in the grand scheme $400 is probably only $100-200 more than other options one might be looking at and at that point who cares. A putter is your most used club and it’ll never wear out, if you like it buy it.
I just don’t see the value in a Tour putter though. What exactly does one get that’s better for the 5x to 10x the price?
I don’t play a Scotty, though I did recently pick up a Circa #3 to play around around with, I game a Byron. So while a new otr Scotty isn’t my first choice I don’t think it’s a bad one. If I suddenly found myself without a putter and had a round to play I’d drop into the local pro shop and throw down $400 for a Newport without much hesitation because I know I’ll get a decent putter that I would have faith in as I stand over the ball.
