I feel like I have to keep updating this thread because he... just... won't... stop. Haha. This seems like the official brand image that he is now going with.

The sad thing is that I think this putter head and hosel look fantastic.

The eyes look different though. Gotta give credit. I would love to see that on a behind the club camera angle to win the Masters this April.

I don’t mind the eyes. I’m not a huge fan of both sight lines. To me it would be best to only have one on the top line. Just my opinion. KB makes some of the smoothest putters on the market.

I've known Kevin through putters since the late 90s when I was a high schooler that worked all summer to get a 9304.  He has always made some of the best putters, if not the best putters in the world, but he has also been a very unique/odd character.  He always marches to the beat of his own drum but he also accepts nothing but the best possible out of his products.  The eye theme he seems to be going with fit the man to a tee if you have had much interaction with him.  I will always cherish and never sell any of my KB putters.

At least you can't see the eyes at address.  I could play one.

Love my KB's, here are a few of them. The 9304 is what Ole won the Masters with and this is the commemorative putter - beautiful sole work. Both this model and the 9303 have a copper insert - behind the face! You have to love and admire that kind of workmanship - I have tried to capture the 'hidden' insert in the photo of the 9303. The last is a pretty rare beast, the 9303 Long Neck model. It differs from the standard 9303 in that it is full stainless without the insert. I have not seen anything of his new designs, but these putters have beautiful lines and set up wonderfully at address.

I'm almost afraid to ask, but...
1) how many putters do you own????!!!!
and 2) how on earth could you possibly choose a single putter to play from your collection on any given day???? :)

Cleveland Launcher 17* UST Elements 60R
TEE e8 22 & 25 hybrids/Recoil 460 F3
Bridgestone J40 DPC's/Recoil 95 F3

and 2) how on earth could you possibly choose a single putter to play from your collection on any given day???? :)
I will answer both questions.

Firstly, to be honest, sometimes when I am in bed of a night I try to account them all in my head and normally get lost or fall asleep :-) I sort of like that because it reminds me of a line from one of my favourite books - 'The Leopard' by Giuseppe Tomasi de Lampedusa an Italian nobleman who wrote just the one book - a masterpiece. In the book somebody asks him how many rooms his villa has and he replies with words to the effect: "if a man actually knows how many rooms his villa has, he is not really wealthy" ha ha ha. I hasten to add that I do not have a 'villa' nor am I 'really wealthy'!

Secondly, as I have stated here before, when it comes to deciding which putter to use, I am like an under 10's football coach - every kid gets a run and if they do good they might get another go the next week! :-)

Thank you for the kind words.

Rob

I have spoken to Kevin a couple of times over the years. He will customize any of his designs to your liking. Stamping, no stamping, graphics, etc. He will even mill you a one piece putter (most of his putters today are two piece offerings). He does a lot on Instagram and responds in a timely manner to any inquiries.

I've had a number of KB's over the years and am down to just two. My 9306 is the best Anser style putter ever made IMO: one piece, all carbon with light milling and perfect stampings.

And a one piece 703 made for a PGA pro I picked up on the cheap. It is just about the best feeling, best rolling putter I've ever used. One day I will likely get one to my specs.

If that happens there will be a year long waiting list for Kevin Burns putters. And some of the guys complaining here about the eyes will be on it.

This putter is incredible. What does Kevin say is the difference between his one-piece and two-piece designs? Feel? Looks? Personal preference?

The eyes turn an otherwise stunning putter into something that looks like a novelty putter, but I would buy that headcover in a minute.

Kevin Burns Golf
16 minutes ago


10 years ago, Kevin Burns developed a revolutionary new way to fit an individual using a two part connecting system. One part is a biometric fitting arm that has an adjustable golf shaft that moves up, down, back and forward. Attached to the arm is a LED computer screen with an image of a putter head and ball. When the customer is set the fitter will capture the exact head weight, lie angle and length information. On the second part of this system, an ordinary laptop computer.
The accuracy of this fitting machine is second to none. The weight is calculated using a bell formula, developed by Kevin himself. Lie angle is calculated within 1/6 of a degree and length is guaranteed to be within 0.003 inches. Unlike our competition we gather exact data to truly craft a putter that is specifically made for you. #kbgolf @ San Jose, California

He claims there is no difference and it allows him to make a custom putter on the spot.
