Jimmy's $38 Used Putter Has Nice ROI
By Kickntrue on 9/28/10
I'm no economist but when you can purchase something for $38 that helps you make $11.3M, it was a good buy. I know the story has been flying around the internets and tv a bit- but here it is for us to comment and speculate on.
Furyk won both prizes using a $30 used putter which he had purchased at the shop three weeks ago during an unannounced visit following the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship at TPC Boston in Norton.I'm glad Mark decided to give Furyk a discount. I'm sure FedExCup or not, Jimmy could've ponied up the full price! HAHA!
Pretty cool story and nice for a small shop to get some unexpected press! My favorite part has to be that he actually bought the dinged up model. Maybe the guys over at Yes! are listening?! Clearly you missed the mark... pun very intended.

ya why offer the discount?!
just goes to show you dont have to have the most expensive newest equipment but the skills to use it.
Joe & Leigh's is an excellent store here in MA. They also run the 3Balls.com website which people are probably more familiar with.
That's just awesome. I love this game.
I thought it was a $39 putter
It was $38 with the discount of $1...LOL
@imasmrtazz... LOL... I saw this on Devil Ball Golf (Yahoo's golf blog)... down to $39 from $65
Didn't Jim say several times during the interview that he chose that one because it was the only heel-shafted putter without an alignment line?
Will everyone run out to buy a Yes putter like they did with the Method when Tiger switched? lol
Seems to be a knock on all the marketing BS; "buy this club and your game will improve."
Technology is great, but it can't fix a bad swing or putting stroke. You can't buy a better game. Only practice can fix that. I score about the same using my clubs or borrowing clubs. Sure, the "feel" changes, but not the score. Some clubs feel right, some just don't.
