Hand made wood golf putter by Bearkat Wood.
While there are no strict rules about exactly what types of clubs the average golfer keeps in their arsenal, the “putter” is certainly one of those clubs almost no golfer goes without. While many modern putters these days are made of metal, CustomMade’s VP of Marketing, Adam, decided to take the opportunity to “go old school” and order a handcrafted wooden putter. Adam worked woodworker Brian Noel of Bearkat Wood in Sinks Grove, WV who had some CustomMade portfolio examples of just what the wooden putter was looking for.
“It was an absolute pleasure working with Brian on my custom putter project. I had a rough idea of a putter design and he was able to provide examples of work he’s done before, and even sent over descriptions of all the different types of wood he could use for the project. He was upfront and honest about pricing and delivery time, and the project was completed exactly as promised. The best part is not only is the putter gorgeous – it works great!”
Bearkat Wood’s putters are solid hardwood and are meant to reflect old world clubs but with a new, modern look. They are handsculpted and inlayed with exotic wood accents.
Here are some action shots of the putter being made by Bearkat Wood.
And here’s the final result in all it’s glory!
