    You were secretive about that not too successful pro golfer, will the secret society continue here as well, or will we get to know who, or maybe it's a contest..

      'JNJ37'. Played a number of rounds with the Merry Mex. And has some outstanding stories to tell.
      But then he is a highly respected story teller.

        Just for the record,TNT was named after Tom and Nick Torkos,who also owned Nobleton Lakes.

          As I am sure you know Jim Furyk bought a used "C" Grove, YES Sophia putter, by chance apparently for the final round and won the 2010 Tour Championship and of course the FEDEX CUP. I think after that a few tour players then gave the YES design a chance but the only guy I see recently with one is Troy Merrit who won an event last year with a "Mollie".
          So it raised the question in my mind, whether the Evnroll is making any inroads into the market place; or is it just a few who know their stuff and obviously must have done some serious trials before spending the I assume the equivalent of having a Scottie in the bag, for a relatively unknown putter?
          The Evnrolls do roll the ball better, at least for me. I've made more putts in the last month than I have for the last two years. They sell moderately well, like Camerons.

            I have a Scotty studio stainless Newport that I bought for $100 from a member here. It has a new nicks and dings on it but it has been the best putter for me. I really like the feel of it versus the other putters I own.

              I'm not much of a Scotty fan due to his lack of lefty love. But if I'm at a store and by chance they have a Newport 2 I'll putt with it cause why not right? I'll putt with it and any other lefty blades which isn't often much but just looking at the putter in hand and at address it does feel really nice and look great too, can't deny that.

              I think this is a huge part of the Scotty allure, like if you sit in a nice car at a dealership, you kinda day dream for a moment going on a nice drive but with the Scotty you're dreaming about knocking down 30ft putts like you see guys on tour.

              Will that Scotty perform better than the Ping, Odyssey, TaylorMade or anything else you tried? Maybe, maybe not but if you have the confidence behind it or have your heart set on it nothing will change your mind.

              This also works for any other putter, my friend had his heart set on a TM Spider, nothing else was going to make it close to his bag.

                Didn't know that, (edit) that they owned Nobleton Lakes. Still play a TNT 'rescue iron'.

                Their company still exists in the Leaside area, and I believe that they also bought the rights to the Jazz name.

                  As far as I know Nick is still listed as an owner at Nobleton Lakes and also Innisfil Creek. General Manager's Message

                  Thank you for visiting Innisfil Creek Golf Club website. I am excited about the up and coming 2019 season. Our family is proudly celebrating its 15th year season as owners and operators. We have several programs that appeal to all levels of golfers. I invite you to browse our programs and check out our golf calendar. Cheers, Nick Torkos

                  They are still listed as co-owners of TNT as well as I believe some other family members. TNT also say they are the sole Canadian distributor for CallawayTag products, Izzo products, and the Bionic Glove.

                      Im a Scotty collector. I have 5 Scotty putters, including a $3000 tour putter and about 60 headcovers. Do I putt better with a Scotty? Im not sure that I do, but I like to. Im a fan of the craft. My tour putter is hand-stamped instead of machine engraved. I like the art of it all. Am I a little crazy? Possibly. We all have things we spend our extra money on. This just happens to be mine. Like cars or watches or shoes. Its all the same.

                        I have a Scotty Newport 2in the home bag and I am consistent with it. It has a stainless face and I noticed this year that some hits are really dead. A few years ago I threw a MidSlim grip on it which I like.

                        I have been switching to heavier shafted irons and was looking at weights for the Scotty. Currently, Ithinkithas 15 gm front and rear, was going to order 25s to balance the grip, see how that works.

                        At the cabin, I have a similar shaped, Anser based design, Kevin Burns with several layers of lead tape on the bottom. It was my gamer until I got the Scotty. Really nice brass head and soft. Works well for mountain greens (tend to be a snick slower than in town).

                          I have a Scotty Newport 2... I bought it used off the Ottawa forum about 5 years ago for $150.00. I was suspicious and took it to Golf Town to see if it was real, he said it was but who knows. I am used to it and I putt well with it. I came from a YES Natalie putter before which I really liked. Not sure i could go back now. The silver head cover that came with the club fell off practically every rd and I would have to back track a hole to find it until finally I lost it for good at Cherry Downs. Purchased a cheap $10 gecko cover off Amazon and has never fallen off once.

                            Just replaced my Scotty GoLo5r with a TM Mullen 2 with the Black/Copper finish and my putting has improved.

                              Last week I was in the Play it Again Sports in Milton to pick up a TM Speedblade sw. Having trouble with traditional Vokeys and Clevelands. On the way out I notice a putter with a Scotty headcover. I pull it off and voila, an Oil Can Newport. Zero dings but looking brown the way it was meant to. Knowing the headcover is probably worth $50, I grabbed the club at $80! Bought new Flatso 1.0 grip from Larry, a kijiji grip guy, for $15. It's in my bag and I've drained several long ones the last two rounds. I also bought a new Scotty grip for $20 in case I ever sell it. But unlikely as it feels terrific. Yes I've had a couple of Scotty's before, but this time I'm a convert! And didn't break the bank to do it.
