Mr. Cameron is an artist! The prices may seem absurd but so does the $350 for the new California series. I'm not going to lie though, I love scotty putters. Not only are they beautiful but they are weighted greatly and have phenomenal feel. As for the asking prices on the putters at the show....seems like they might be fare. I'm pretty sure I saw handcrafted on most of those and it seems the majority of them are one of a kind. As for the Picasso comment....I think that's actually a good analogy. Picasso of course being on a completely different level, but would you not consider Mr. Cameron a master craftsmen of his trade and indeed an artist? So...Scotty is at the forefront of putter making as a phenomenal putter maker and has a high reputation and demand. Would it not be reasonable to say that a handcrafted painting by Picasso would sell for much more than a production reprint? And seemingly so, a handmade, one of a kind, Scotty would sell for much more than a manufactured putter. I think people that get these don't even let them see a golf course, they are collectors items and probably will be enshrined in a lighted cabinet somewhere. I respect both sides. I understand why they are priced that high, and I feel for the people that can't stand the fact that they are outrageously high priced. And I thought the putter covers on ebay were high?!! I for one will probably never own a putter like these or be able to afford one. But given the opportunity, I could see myself purchasing one of these timeless works of art from a true golf club making legend. But I can understand I guess. Who would by a painting by Picasso either? After all...it is just a painting.
