I love rusted wedges so much I am getting a set of irons rawed out so I have a full set.

I was wondering about getting a putter rawed too but not sure how it would effect playability.

Would it make it softer? Would the rust in the face negatively affect putts?

Unless you try to rapidly rust it and create uneven spots, no it wouldn't effect it one iota. You could raw it and then to get the deep rich brown, either do a coffee treatment or use plum brown. That way its controlled in the color you're looking for and will get that color for you until you develop natural rust.

If you like the way it looks, go for it. Doing this will not negatively affect putts, nor will it make the putter feel softer.

I like the idea of the coffee grounds treatment.

A rusty putter screams "I don't take care of my stuff." just like a guy who doesn't keep the headcovers on and ends up with a ton of bag chatter. I understand the idea of trying to get that relic look, but it should be done professionally abd artfully, and rusting it out is neither. I would go with oil can or plum brown 1000 times over true rust.

Oil canned putters are really the same as rusted putters. They are both oxidations of raw carbon steel, just different results. One is a chemical reaction controlled by the person applying the finish, while the other is natural oxidation that occurs when you leave carbon steel untreated.

I've been trying the coffee treatment on a raw carbon Scotty newport classic. I've had the putter in used grounds for about two weeks now and went to check on it this evening and saw no real browning. Any tips or steps I should follow?

I realize this post is over a year old, but this comment made me chuckle.

No golfer with an ounce of respect would be caught with a putter that was not professionally and artfully done (takes sip of tea with pinky dangling in the air)!

I love a naturally patina on a putter ( Not a rusty putter )  see the 009 below, I'm also a big fan of the Plumb Brown finish on a putter:)


like others have said, it will not effect the putters performance at all, and it looks freaking amazing:)

absolutely.... mine is that way by happenstance .....but has too many memories attached to refinish...I just oil and store...but I may get her out for a whirl soon... still to this day the best feeling putter ive ever held... solid face with no cavity on the 350G newports just makes a difference to me....but it may also be in my head too..lol

I don't plan on refinishing it. I learned today that Scotty doesn't even offer the oil can refinish any longer and if I want them to refinish it I would either have to chose pro platinum or classic black and neither of those I like. I did contact BOS and they said that they still retain the original formula used for these putters and when their 10 year exclusivity contract ended with Titleist they took the formula with them. So, although I love the look of a new putter I think this one will going to stay how it is.
If anything I will be sending it to Scotty for a COA... although I would have to settle for a yellow border COA since the grip has been replaced. Anyway, it is going to get gamed... this and my Byron will have plenty a duel on the course. The only question is... which one do I  travel with???!??!??

And I happen to have a pretty cool Scotty cover that will be used on this.... although I wouldn't mind trying to find a different one to put on it. I have a Circle T T10 BB coming and was thinking of keeping that cover for the 009 but I will probably need to sell those two together... keep an eye out on BST for that beauty... ;)

Lol.  Yep.  Will do.  That's  just such a striking putter.  Not because of mr Spieth.  But because it's the anti Cameron not the "look at me" 009 everyone else has. It says I'm all banged up , I'm a street fighter , "I've sank more putts than you've rolled" .... And I love it!

awesome...another chance to throw up a couple pics of my rusty girl.... I call it character...patina... a reminder of my youth... Owned this girl since 1998ish ....

If I saw this lurking in your bag I wouldn't be putting down a single $1 on the first tee.  This tells me one thing:

Not one damn was given to the looks, Im all about dropping putts from 50 feet and in.  Danger Will Robinson.*

its kind of funny... I have had that Newport since I was working as a school kid at a local course and found it there mowing greens one morning... no headcover when I found it... well being a kid I used it until 2014 without a headcover... then I joined this site and realized what I had.... lol   33/350G oilcan that was beat to hell and back.... whats funny is im super picky about headcovers on woods etc.... all my other clubs are cleaned and covered religiously.. not irons mind you , but I do clean and care for them after every use..   Im now carrying a Mann Ma/66 counter balance ..which I love and still looks new after a whole winters use..    But my Newport is now more prized than any because of the many memories attached... I threaten to put her back in a lot..I even bought an NOS black titleist cord grip for her and haven't installed it YET... you should see the original black cord that's on her.... slickest grip ive ever seen  has my hand prints visible and you can feel them as sort of a "reminder" of where to place the hands..... chunks missing out of it and all....

I love a naturally patina on a putter ( Not a rusty putter )  see the 009 below, I'm also a big fan of the Plumb Brown finish on a putter:)
FullSizeRender.jpg

like others have said, it will not effect the putters performance at all, and it looks freaking amazing:)

why you showing off my baby????  haha



joey please, please don't refinish that 009!!!!   I would have loved to have had that one...I think its perfect...naked... patina... toe stamp... what else could you want!!!!

I don't plan on refinishing it. I learned today that Scotty doesn't even offer the oil can refinish any longer and if I want them to refinish it I would either have to chose pro platinum or classic black and neither of those I like. I did contact BOS and they said that they still retain the original formula used for these putters and when their 10 year exclusivity contract ended with Titleist they took the formula with them. So, although I love the look of a new putter I think this one will going to stay how it is.
If anything I will be sending it to Scotty for a COA... although I would have to settle for a yellow border COA since the grip has been replaced. Anyway, it is going to get gamed... this and my Byron will have plenty a duel on the course. The only question is... which one do I  travel with???!??!??

And I happen to have a pretty cool Scotty cover that will be used on this.... although I wouldn't mind trying to find a different one to put on it. I have a Circle T T10 BB coming and was thinking of keeping that cover for the 009 but I will probably need to sell those two together... keep an eye out on BST for that beauty... ;)

I was depressed when I got on at work and saw that had went so quick... I've been looking for a rusty old beat up gamer 009 lately...
In the putters defense, she only looks beat up, the head, it's self, is in PERFECT condition, not a ding or dent to be found, just the finish wear.
I hesitated to sell this beauty, but i can't justify having 2 of them:)
Joe has an absolute Gem on his hands now:)

putters do have loft so if rust adds to surface roughness it could add unwanted backspin.

Hope this helps

Thats great other than the fact that the notion that rust adds roughness which adds spin has been shot down and proven false over a million times.

I love old rusty Scotty Cameron putters. Heck many people try all sorts of things to get the "rusty" look. That's why the post was created.... It's appealing.

How many of us on here saw Ogilvy's patina scotty on the WRX homepage and thought " you know what - that's awesome!" ?
