I consider myself fortunate to have come across Clay Long’s putters, and own 3 of them, including two limited special editions (one that was made for Jack Nicklaus). It doesn’t seem that people know anything about them. After getting my first from a small golf shop, I wanted another and called Mr. Long’s company, and Clay himself answered the phone!  Really great guy with a pretty incredible pedigree in the golf industry.

What do you guys know and/or think about his putters?  Rollyourball is his company if you wanted to look at his putters. He really only makes special editions and doesn’t have many on hand.

From the lack of replies, it draws me to the conclusion that people just aren’t aware/familiar with these putters. That’s a shame in my opinion as they are really nice!

His branding and marketing is atrocious. Always amazes me because that's my day job and it's super cheap to get done right. I must say Clay's site is probably the worst manufacturer site I saw this year.

I agree, but from talking to him, making these putters is more of a hobby for him, and they are certainly ‘niche.’  I don’t think his intent was to ever be mainstream. Even as such, I would have thought the WRX community would have known about them as there are some really crafty guys on here that impress me with their knowledge about some unique things.

I don’t believe he is an active putter maker. The website nor the putters have been updated for many years. There are dozens of defunct boutique putter makers out there that while might have manufactured a great product would not garner interest in WRX due to lack of availability.

He’s still making putters. He was working with taylormade for a while so he wasn’t doing much out on his own but he’s back at it again.

Sorry Hound, I missed your remark about JN in the opening post. Clay Long is a legend.

If I’m not mistaken, he also helped TM develop some of their new wedges. I talked to him in July about purchasing another putter (looking for a mallet), and he didn’t have any. Said he would let me know when he made more, which leads me to believe he will make more. Again, just a hobby for him at this point, but makes great putters!
