    My neighbor knocked on my door this am to tell me that one of our neighbors had just cleaned out their garage and their was a bag full of golf clubs at the road. Thanked him, jumped in my SUV and was their in about two minutes. Brought it home with intention of taking these clubs to the muni, where I play for the kids programs there. Did a thorough inspection and found an array of clubs in the bag. About three or four odd sets of clubs, both adults and kids. A couple of items that I was interested in; a set of png 2 Zing irons and a Acushnet Bulls Eye Prop Balance Flange Putter with the original putter grip on it. Went on line a PGAVALUE.COM and could find nothing regarding this club and even put it into my search engine (Google) came up empty handed. Thought I might throw it out to the TT community and see if anyone knows anything about the club. Age, value, etc. Thanks in advance for any assistance.

    Not sure of the age but it would be 1962 or later as Titleist/Acuchnet acquired in that year. The prior models are worth more, but, not much- Scotty Cameron later designed some models, but, it has been some time since his last model. Following are some of the original models made by the John Reuters Jr. company:STD (Standard) - Medium weight with rounded toe and top.

    OS (Old Standard) - Medium weight with square toe and top blade. Sight line

    O-Set (Offset) - Medium weight with square toe and top blade. Sight line

    OR (Original) - Medium weight, rounded toe, flat top. For right or left handers.

    LB (Light Blade) - Like Old Standard but lighter, narrower

    HB (Heavy Blade) - Like Old Standard but with heavier, wider blade

    LAF (LaFemme) - Light weight for the woman golfer. Rounded toe, top and flange.

    JR (Junior) - Standard blade. 30" shaft. Scaled-down grip dimensions

    FL (Flange) - Medium weight, slightly offset. Single sweet spot sight line

    LHFL (Left Handed Flange) - Medium weight, slightly offset. Single sweet spot sight line

    HSF (Heel Shafted Flange) - Medium-heavy weight. Offset hosel. Sweet spot slot for improved feel and alignment.

    HSF-II - Heel Shafted Flange II Like the Heel Shafted Flange but without the Offset

    WFL (Wide Flange) - Heavy, wide flange for low concentration of weight. Sweet spot slot. Ideal for large or slower greens.

    WFLO (Wide Flange Offset) - Same as Wide Flange but offset

    ML - Mallet
    MLO - Mallet Offset
    MLI - Mallet I

    Length: Grip:
    4 - 34" P- Paddle
    5 - 35" S- Standard
    6 - 36" C- Cord
    "LaFemme" - 34"

    Lie:
    M - Medium
    U - Upright
    F - Flat

    No Titleist, no John Reuters Jr, stamp on it....only Acushnet, Bulls Eye Prop Balance Flange.....no letters imprinted on the head either.....I have a John Reuters Jr. Bulls Eye also......talked to my friends at a local golf shop and they said like most, value low. But might be worth something to a collector. We found pictures of it on google. They wanted to bring it back to life.

    The John Reuters Jr. would be more of a collectable- I would guess yours has the number for length and the letter for the lie on it- when Titleist acquired them in 1962 the started putting Acushnet on their models - not Titleist- some if not all of the Scotty Cameron models had "By Titleist" on the sole.
  5. Wow Chuck, that brings back memories of my OS!

    Looks like an obvious fake.
    Says "Made in U.S.A."
