Prototype of new "Manhattan" model ships for New York City
I recently met with a customer at Hot Stix Golf in Scottsdale and was lucky enough to watch him go thru their in-depth putter fitting process. He had been demo'ing a pair of my handmades and before purchasing a putter, we both felt he needed to get the exact numbers that would benefit him the very most. Though he does not get to play as often as he would like, he manages to keep a single-digit handicap and has a swing that many would be jealous of. Following his fitting, using my new 2014 Rattler, he made the choice to...

Doing a very limited number of a classic design in carbon steel.
I was fortunate enough to have worked with a company in the past that had some heads milled out of a Texas facility in the classic style that almost everyone knows about. When I inquired about using some of them for MannKrafted projects, the president of that company was very gracious. He gave me his blessing to create some custom looks on a limited number of heads. This is my opportunity to give the guys who are supporters of what I do, a chance to have a hand in creating exactly what they want, in the style of a putter...

New Model that will be up, soon. "ONE-14", blend of a few favorites.
I milled the prototype for this one, back in October and it sat with a 303 SS neck for a while, until the true look of what it was supposed to be showed itself. The head was screaming for a double-bend shaft, slipped over an aluminum, threaded-in stub and made to find a home in my bag. The brass head is absolutely gorgeous and it feels very soft. The milling does not kill the feel, at all and gives great feedback. I played my first round of 2014 with this one and the factor that grabbed me was that I...

MannKrafted Unique Putter with Custom Stamping/Engraving [PICS]
Here is a unique project that LaMont worked on with a customer who has several custom MannKrafted putters in his collection. This was a collaborative effort by the customer who had some very cool ideas for stamping combined with some ideas LaMont had been throwing around in his head. The result was one badass putter with unique stamping and a great overall look. If you are interested in working with LaMont to bring your putter creation to life send us an email as email@example.com.

MannKrafted Fresh Inspiration with Materials [PICS]
MannKrafted handmade brass Rattler MannKrafted hand turned brass ferrule Is there a material that is being overlooked in the putter world, for use in milling custom designs? Recently, I have started to look at materials other than 1018 CR Steel and 303 Stainless Steel, as starter materials for my putters, handmade as well as CNC/handkrafted blend putters. The ease of milling that you find with aluminum makes it a good candidate, but the lightweight of the 6061 makes using this metal somewhat challenging. Either you have to mill heads that are substantially larger than standard, or design the...

MannKrafted Putters for Charity [PICS]
In 2010, I was approached by one of the Southwest's top pediatricians, Dr. Dave Curran, and was asked to build a putter for an upcoming charity event hosted by the Children's Cancer Center at Cardon's Childrens Medical Center, in Mesa, AZ. If you know anything about my family, this is a cause that hits close to home and I jumped at the opportunity. I wanted to create something special, something unique and a putter that the winning bidder could be proud to show off in a foursome, anywhere. I started with an idea in my mind of a flowing,...

Custom Putter from MannKrafted- The Process [PICS]
Custom putters have come a long way in the past 20 years. In the past, the options for custom putters were limited, and in many cases, very expensive. There are several putter manufacturers who are in the custom putter market now. For many people, ordering a custom putter can be intimidating or overwhelming. It is different than going to a golf shop and picking up a putter to play it for a couple of months and then move on to another model. When you invest in a custom putter, you want to be sure it will be in your bag...

MannKrafted gamed in Schwab Cup
We had an exciting week last week. For the first time a MannKrafted putter was gamed by a Champions Tour player at the Schwab Cup. David Frost heard about MannKrafted a couple months ago and was eager to test out a new putter. David Frost has consistently been at the top of putting averages since he joined the PGA tour years ago. His putting success has continued on the Champions Tour where he is always at or near the top for putting average. Needless to say we were excited to have one of the best putters in the world interested...
