Inside the 2013 Bettinardi Summer Social

Every summer for the past few years, putter aficionados from across the country have flocked to Chicago for the Bettinardi Summer Social.  They come together to see old friends, make new friends, play golf, smoke cigars, and, most importantly, to see the latest creations from Bettinardi Golf.

A Quick Introduction

For those who aren’t familiar with Bettinardi, here’s what you need to know: Robert Bettinardi has been producing putters since 1991.  Initially he made putters for other OEMs (including a certain Scotty Cameron), but in 1998 he launched his own line of putters under the name Bettinardi Golf.  Today, Bettinardi is synonymous with the finest milled putters in the game.  Additionally, every Bettinardi putter is 100% made in the USA (Tinley Park, IL, to be specific).

Enough Talk…Picture Time

I know that no one clicked on this story to read my writing.  You want pictures, so here they are: over 100 pictures of some of the sickest putters (and bags, headcovers, buckles, flasks…) that you’ll ever see.  Enjoy.
