    I know it may be blasphemous, but has anyone considered or used a 3rd (non-SC) company to restore or refinish their putter?

    I inherited a late model Newport Studio 2.0 that I thought about restoration. It’s in good condition, and I have researched both the SC Custom Shop as well a coupe online services (Embrace/NorCal). SC Custom shop would be my first choice, but could get pricey. But I like the idea of the original crafters doing the work.

    Likely would be changing to black matte finish and maybe some stamps and re-paint.

    Just wanted to gauge the thoughts of the TT community.

    Welcome any feedback! Thanks!

    I would NOT consider a third party restoration or customization company. My reason is first you will never be able to send your putter in the scotty cameron custom shop in the future since they will not work on anything that has not been done by themselves, second your selling value of the putter may be negatively impacted significantly since putter experts like myself in the hobby would less likely purchase a third party resto or custom work, and lastly part of the fun is sending your putter to the Scotty Cameron Spa (custom shop) and getting it back with all sorts of authentic treats!

    IMHO, Chris

    Thanks for your feedback! Appreciate it. I’ve been leaning in the direction of the SC Shop, and likely will be sending in soon ahead of a Feb Myrtle Beach golf trip.

    I had a third party ( bumper job ) TEI3 NP2, sent it to the custom shop. They were happy to do work on it for me. Full resto back to the original state of the putter.

    I have seen good results from the putter lounge but again like was said earlier if you have work done somewhere else you won't be able to send back to Cameron. It's worth it to have it done by the best in the business.

    I can’t imagine ever taking or allowing anyone other than Scotty or his people to work on my putter? What would be the reason to take it elsewhere? Saving money wouldn’t be worth it in the short or long run. Why buy something like a really good putter and trust someone who is not the best with it?
