Citing his new putter’s look as part of the reason for his success, Titleist ambassador Michael Letzig fired a course-record 60 yesterday during the first round of the Nationwide Tour Championship at Barona Creek Golf Club.
What’s even cooler about this story is the fact that this is the same type of putter Michael has been using for 5 years, a Project C.L.N. (Cameron Long Neck). I made him a new one with some bead weld on the sole to help it set up just right, and then I changed out his finish to a shiny black (gun-blue). Sometimes all it takes is a fresh new look to get a player back on track, and setting records.
