I have fancied a change of colour of my putter for a while now but couldn’t bring myself to do anything to my Scotty Cameron Newport 2 (other than paintfill) so I had my eye out for a suitable putter to work on. As I carry a 100% Titleist bag I wanted an old Titleist Dead Center putter and found one recently on ebay for £5.19 so the project began.
They came painted black so all I needed to do was strip the paint off, light sanding to remove a few marks and provide a good key for the primer.
I started with a red oxide primer then grey primer a light sanding of the primer then about 8 light coats of satin white paint, I used a quick drying enamel spray but think a car paint would be easier to work with next time. I am very pleased with the results, a new shaft will go in and an Orange Golf pride putter grip. It is 45 grams lighter than my Newport 2 so maybe it will be a good summer putter when the greens speed up?
Orange sight lines haven’t gone on very well, will remove them and re-do them I think.
Not sure how this finish will hold up so will give it a try and see. Matte black with orange lines next time I think. I will offer this service as soon as I see which paint is the most durable.
