The black finish would glisten in the sun as I stood over a putt and I always felt confident about drawing it back and making a birdie. Years later, it began to show its age with scratches, nicks, faded paint, rust, and a depressed top line from dropping it into my golf bag for all those years. Little by little, my putting became less consistent and (horrors) I began to look at newer models.
Then I learned about Scotty’s Custom Shop and their ability to completely restore Cameron putters. The custom shop can stamp initials, apply paint fills, create additional sight dots and lines, add a new grip or head cover, restore your putter’s finish, add weight and even authenticate your putter.
I sent my putter back to the Custom Shop with instructions and personal preferences. When the box arrived about six weeks later, I was like a kid on Christmas morning. The secure packaging was an indication of the treasure I was about to unwrap. Now I know what the phrase “good as new” truly means.
My completely restored, personalized, authenticated Scotty Cameron Teryllium Long-Neck Newport 2 putter looks as though I was pulling it off the shelf for the first time. It boasts a new finish, new shaft, new grip, new head cover, and it’s re-set to original specifications. I can’t say enough about the staff and the personal service I received which matched the extraordinary craftsmanship on the putter.
The team is so proud of their work that every day on their website, they spotlight one putter that has been sent for restoration or customization. Check out what has been done by other customers and maybe get some great ideas for yourself.

There’s a lot of things you could say about this Jerry Sandusky interview with Bob Costas last night. Costas said later to Dan Patrick that he was expecting to interview his attorney. It was Sandusky’s attorney that offered up the former Notre Dame coach. Everybody is asking, “Why on earth would you do that?”
This isn’t safe for work, and very graphic in parts.

Who knew Kordell Stewart was an analyst for ESPN? You wouldn’t know, as they never show him on TV. They’ve buried him on video for the website with the very attractive Prim Siripipat. He needs a little more personality.
He does tell of facing Harbaugh as a player with the Pittsburgh Steelers. They talk at length about the 49ers successes below.

Tout used to be just the place Shaq made announcements. Now, it’s gaining a lot more steam. 49ers legends Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott sat down to discuss the current state of the franchise. Montana, as one example talks about Frank Gore set to become the all time leader in rushing for the team.

written by Andy Hawk, ESPN 1320’s resident 49ers Homer
Steve Young, Jerry Rice, and Brent Jones sure do look great this year. At 6-1, The 49ers are ranked by ESPN as the #2 team in the NFL. Don’t mind me, I just have that tingly feeling anytime someone says anything about the NFL or even football in general. Come on… six and freaking one! How did this happen? It’s felt like an eternity since our team was a dominant force on Sundays. I mean Alex smith is our QB! I thought we had holes in the offensive line? I thought the Niners were too weak at the WR position? Isn’t Frank Gore too old? No, nope, nah, and not at all. The San Francisco 49ers have improved every week in almost every facet. The defense is so good they’re physically knocking star players out of the game every week.
The 49ers run the ball and can’t be run on. This spells very bad news for the hapless Redskins on Sunday. John Beck, you’re in trouble. I’m so excited for Sunday at 10AM, I can’t stand it! As the playbook is evolving we are starting to see some serious creativity coming from coach Harbaugh. Never in our wildest dreams would anyone have guessed Joe Staley and Isaac Sopoaga would both have huge catches for first downs. I’m not even going to try and predict what trick play we might see on Sunday morning.
I’m Andy Hawk, your San Francisco 49er homer, reminding you to catch the game this week on ESPN 1320 and hold on…pregame at 9:00am, kickoff at 10:00am, with Ted Robinson and Eric Davis.
