Saturday Conversation: Scotty Cameron – Refinish or Not?

I’m looking for your opinion.  This is my Scotty Cameron putter that I’ve used for years (and years).  I love it.  I feel very confident with this putter, and have no plans to ‘upgrade’ any time soon.  I am debating sending it in for a refinish.  Nothing other than a tune up – repaint to the original look and clean up some of the dings.

What do you think?  Should I send it in, or leave it as is?  Leave a comment and let me know what you think…

    I vote yes. Putting is a confidence game once you have found one that works for you technically. I can’t help but think that cleaned up putter will increase your confidence as you stand over a tough putt.

    I have a buddy that sent in a teryllium to Cameron a year or so ago. His looked pretty similar to yours when he sent it in, used but definitely not abused. Their work doesn’t come cheap or fast but it is utterly amazing what they can do to a putter. If you decide to pull the trigger on it, you won’t be disappointed when that bad boy comes back.

    Absolutely. Get him to slap a new shaft, shaft band, grip, and headcover on it as well. That is if you intend to send it back to his guys.

    Keep it as is and let it bleed. Depending on what you’re using, maybe a new grip though. Cameron makes one that gets wider and sort of tapers at the end and is great.

    I say hold tight. I’m a superstitious sports fan by nature, and you never mess with a winner. If you’re putting well with your SC than keep the magic alive.

    Another vote for sending it back to Scotty, I did it about 2 years ago & am still very pleased with the refurbished putter.

    You might as well, If you’re confident with the putter and don’t plan on upgrading anytime soon, just imagine the added boost of confidence with a fresh look and reenergized feel. The price that scotty charges is minimal when it is compared to buying one of his new putters. Also with a restoration when you do plan to upgrade your putter you can get much more money for your old one than you can in the condition it is in now.
    Best wishes, go low.

    I tend agree with Greg… the slightest change can make a big impact in your game. Several years ago I changed the grip on my driver and from then on I never hit it the same. On the other side of the coin I know you’re particular and very meticulous so a renovation on the putter would look amazing. Tuff call.

    Send it in. I did my Scotty Gun Metal last year and it came back perfect. They do replace your shaft and grip, so everything is back to square. The new head cover was nice also! I lost my original a long time ago.

    It’s hard to tell from the pics, but if it’s got a lot of dings in it, or if any of them are deep at all, the custom shop is just going to send it back to you. It looks like it’s in pretty decent shape. I’d say the only reason to send it to the custom shop is to have them change the finish. If you’re just looking to clean it up a bit, you can do it at home for not much more than it would cost you to ship it off to have it repaired

    Let it be… If you’re comfortable and confident, don’t risk it by sending it in.
