It's funny. I can get rid of everything golf wise, except putters. The only putter i've ever used that I don't still have is my first putter. I'd still have it except my sister sold it in a garage sale 42 years ago so that she could come to my wedding. That's a better use for it than I was ever able to put it to. Do I have a putter collection, then? More like a putter graveyard!

Get yourself a Cameron before you do anything else. I played everythign for years before discovering Scott's work. Once you start using a Cameron, there's a good chance you will be done with everything else. One of the new Newport Selects would be cool, or go old school with one of the Tei putters.

or, you'll be like me, who started wtih camerons and then discovered everyone on the afore-mentioned list, wondering why i wasted so much time messing around with camerons when there were so many more options.
agreed ....... but i still cant seem to let the doggies run wild ... they always seem to find their way back into the bags.

Yes, this thread has been sleeping for a while but...

I agree with you & not hebron mate.  Just started collecting and swapped a SC Circa 62 #3 into the bag as I was blown away by how well I rolled it!

There are the occasional cheap (banged up) Scottys out there but maybe not quite to your budget - there are some nice people on bst that may cut a deal on one they are struggling to sell - or can post a 'wanted to buy'.

I feel the same....   Don't waste your time with an overpriced Scotty.  

Something I noticed in your post is that you're starting off and have a budget in mind...  I recommend picking up a Ping BeCu Pal4, or a Pal2 if you like more of a heal shafted putter.  Both are pretty common putters and you could pick one up for for under $50.  

Happy Hunting!

Putters every golfer should try:

MnBr Ping Anser with a floating face.  Preferably with a Pingman or Pro Only grip.
TP Mills 1.  The original milled putter.
Wilson 8802 with leather.  It's the reason that my collection has gone the direction it has.
Bullseye John Reuter Jr sand cast brass model.  Preferably with leather.
Sportsman/Bristol/Ram Wizard 600 with the fluted shaft.   Jack won 15 majors with it.
Ram Zebra
Tad Moore TM-2
Odyssey Rossie II
Ray Cook Nugget.  One of the early heavy putters.
BeCu Anser 4
BeCu Zing 2

Once you figure out what style you like, venture into the modern milled reproductions.
I think everyone should try a Byron Morgan DH-89 if they are an Anser fan.  It's (IMO) one of the best Anser design putters out there.
Tour Issue SLDR 430 9w/ Oban Devotion 8
X-Hot Pro 3Deep 13 w/ Project X-10A2
Tour Issue 585.H 17 w/ Diamana Thump X
Mizuno MP-63 3-PW w/ Nippon Modus 120 TX
Vokey SM-5 54M and 60M w/ DG Tour X7
Bettinardi Solid Copper BB2 RJB1982

I remember this thread when it was brand new and it really had some great ways to build a general collection and not spend a ton of cash.
The killer part reading it today was that I am far from being a collector, at least in my own eyes, and the lists that were posted by Hebron, CWB and esketores each had some great ideas in them.  I started looking at bags in my house, what I had on the wall and what was leaning up against the wall of my shop and I had pretty much every maker that was mentioned and never paid any attention.
Guess that means that when you start collecting, sometimes it never really leaves you.  They may not come as often or with as much intention, but the manage to find their way into your hands and linger a while.
With my current situation, maybe it is time to thin this herd and let some of the new guys add a few to their stash that won't break their bank.
Just wanted to post that either way you go on a collection, there is no "RIGHT" or "WRONG" way to go.  There is no "MUST HAVE" putter maker that will put your collection on the map.  It is all in what do YOU see value or beauty in.  I really liked the way that HoosierHacker managed to thin his collection down and keep some peace in the apartment.  I have been there and it was a great move, at the time.
Enjoy the putters, love the game and share what you know.  THAT ought to be the general rule, but sometimes it gets a bit clouded.
Have an amazing day,
LaMont in AZ
