Inspired by the love of the game introduced to him by his father, an insurance man with a two handicap, Scotty’s early passion for creating putters started in the 1960s in the family garage where the two experimented and tinkered with clubs, always looking for a better way. When they weren't on the course, Scotty and his dad could be found in their workshop shaping club heads, wrapping grips, creating new designs and getting them ready for “field” tests.
With the putter, the idea was, when it’s finished, it should look like it melts into the ground. It should appeal emotionally, as well as physically. This design philosophy continues decades later at Scotty’s Southern California Putter Studio minutes from the home he shares with his wife and daughters.
