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?
