I recently was at Nike's "Oven" in Ft. Worth and spent a short time with in the shop of their putter maker, David Franklin.

Coolest tidbit from there was the wide milling on putter faces he showed me as example of what Rory likes for his putter.  "You can't make a putter soft enough for Rory," he explained.  The wide milling helps provide that feel.

Just the opposite - "Tiger likes to hear a click" Franklin added.  To do say David milled the putter face every tightly, hardening the feel and raising the tone.

Thoughts on this?  Ever consider the width of the milling on your putter face in regards to feel and sound?DSCN1816.JPG

Scotty Cameron started working with this concept a few years ago with "deep milling". With deeper more aggressive milling it gave the putter a softer feel at impact. The idea is the more material removed from the surface the softer the impact.
