Campaign Story

MACHINE’D HOG OVERSIZED SHAFTS.

MACHINE’D HOG Putter Shaft – bringing back a legendary breakthrough in putter shaft innovation.
The HOG putters by Dogleg Right burst onto the golf scene 28 years ago in 1994, proving that a stiffer, lower torque, more massive and more stable putter shaft could be more accurate, more consistent and more forgiving. HOG Putters proved their metal with over 100 players and a dozen wins on the major tours, including many of the greatest players in the game.
In 2002 Billings and Dogleg Right started work on development of the technologies behind the MACHINE putters, first as a R&D project submission to friends at the Oven at Nike Golf, and then later as a new brand from Dogleg.  Jim Furyk tested a pair of prototype hybrid HOG Superline putters in 2003, putting the radical new putter in his bag, shooting 64 and back to back top-5 finishes at the Byron Nelson and Colonial tournaments.†
Fast forward to 2022 and Dave Billings is reuniting the HOG with his MACHINE technologies, and offering them together for today’s golfers to enjoy.
MACHINE’d HOG Graphite Putter shafts made by UST Mamiya and are available as a standard epoxy-bond “glued” in or on (shaft adapter in or over hosel designs), or our next generation MACHINE X-Changer Interchangeable and Adjustable system.  These shafts are 0.600 Diameter, non-tapered and weight 70 grams.  They come in either matte black or clear over the woven graphite construction, with milled tip adapters available in black, silver, red, orange or grey.
Most standard putter grips will fit the 0.600” Butt diameter
MACHINE’d HOG Steel Putter shafts made by True Temper Sports and are available as a standard epoxy-bond “glued” in or on (shaft adapter in or over hosel designs), or our next generation MACHINE X-Changer Interchangeable and Adjustable system.  These FAT HOG shafts are available in two sizes.  The standard version is 0.500 tip Diameter, non-tapered and weighs 110 grams.  The TOUR version is 0.450 tip diameter, non tapered and weighs 110 grams.
MSRP $249 with Graphite shaft and Adapter and Leather MACHINE grip by Best Grips.
MSRP $199 with Graphite shaft and Adapter and rubber MACHINE grip by Lamkin.
MSRP $149 with Steel Shaft and Adapter and rubber MACHINE grip by Lamkin.

PUTTER RELEASE MATRIX

MACHINE SHOP Putters: Made at Dogleg Right’s Custom Putter Shop, with a host of customization options including head and hosel material, plating and finish combinations; lie; length; as well as special shafts and grips.

MACHINE PROTO Putters: Machine Prototype putters are extremely rare, often one-of-a-kind creations and innovations from Dave Billings, used to explore and test new concepts in design, construction and / or finish. These are usually made in less than five pieces total, ever, and are tested with some very special friends whom Dave works with, trusts and highly respects. Minor modifications are designs and made into subsequent models if and when they get added to the lines. Therefore, the original PROTOs are discernible, rare and unique.

MACHINE ART Putters: Machine Art putters are Dave Billings’ most creative, artistic and expressive pieces, as well as the putters he puts the most time, (and a little blood sweat and tears into as well). From special materials, one of a kind stamps, unique grinds, extravagant hand hammered peening, large amounts of melting, wild hand torched flaming and numerous other artistic touches, these rare and unique ART Putters are sure to find a prize spot in a few lucky putter aficionado’s collections.

MACHINE GARAGE Putters: Finished by Hand by Dave Billings in his Garage, where he does his most creative work, and puts in countless hours making sure each of these putters is “just right!” From special grinds, melted edges, select hand hammered peening, special finishes, including hand rubbed satin, hand blued, and hand flamed Rainbow, to special “signature” stamps, to hand bent hosels. These are just some of the options available with MACHINE Garage Putters.

MACHINE TOUR Putters: Just as the name implies, TOUR putters are built specifically for TOUR players to try and use. Sometimes these are tested by players, and then passed on to collectors and loyal customers after coming back from their gypsy life out on TOUR. Hopefully a few will make their way into TOUR players’ bags, and on to help those players do great things!

Machine Starter offers limited custom options for this project.  Contact us.

MACHINE M12.5 PUTTER WITH MACHINE’D HOG OVERSIZED PUTTER SHAFT AND OPTIONAL DELTA MODS

Some potential issues include:

Supply chain delivery issues (primarily components)-
Ramping up capacity has many moving parts. We have selected a group of suppliers that have proven track records in the golf industry. However, it is to be expected that improvements in process and efficiency will need to be made as we transition from prototype quantities to higher volumes.

Acts of God or events that are outside our control-
Delays from transportation strikes or problems due to extreme weather conditions are examples that are certainly in the realm of possibility. We have added some buffer time into our schedule. However, it’s possible that we encounter something that could impact delivery dates.
If there is an issue that will impact you (our backers), we promise to keep you informed on status and do whatever it takes to solve the problem in the best way possible.
