  • The 1986 Masters

      In 1986 Jack Nicklaus became the oldest man to win the Masters and make it an historic event. Jack had used a putter with a gigantic blade of about 6-8" in length! It was a MacGregor Response Putter and I believe that during the Masters telecast, someone had said that Jack had even painted the blade black. His putting was tremendous that day and many thought that his large zinc putter was part of the reason. Minutes after his victory, many golfers including me ran to the pro shops to purchase one. Most shops were sold out immediately; however, I did eventually own one. Jack's signature was reproduced very nicely on the bottom of the blade. It seemed to be well-balanced and did putt very well; however, I could not bring myself to carry around that gargantuan putter in my bag, as I could putt just as well with my old standby. I was wondering if anyone here had experimented with the Response Putter or maybe still own one? Would like your thoughts on that putter?
