  1. I received a putter my grandfather used for years and would like to see if anyone can help me determine the age or when it was produced. The putter is stamped Acushnet Bulls eye John Reuter , and it has what I think is a serial number stamped which is STDM5P. If anyone can help me with info on this I would really appreciate it.

    This could be from the 1980's, is the head brass or stainless steel or a combination?

  4. Hi Jacob,

    It's always fun to look at older model clubs especially when they possess sentimental value. Here is a little information about your grandfather's putter.

    STDM5P is actually the model information and not the serial number. It stands for:

    STD - Standard head style
    M - Medium Lie (or standard lie)
    5 - 35" long
    P - Paddle grip

    This model putter was manufactured between 1985 and 1995.

    Hope this helps!

    The John Reuter Company began producing the Bulls Eye Putter in the mid 1940's. Acushnet acquired Reuter in 1962. They remained, essentially, in their original, sand-cast form up through the early 80's.
    Mine says John Reuter, Acushnet, 0-set M-5, but not the Bulls Eye script, unless it has worn off. It's a magnificent putter, very accurate and forgiving. Although I've seen the later Scotty Cameron rework of the Bulls Eye go for $500 plus, mine is a $1 rescue from the Goodwill. Best dollar I ever spent.
    Johnny Miller used a Bulls Eye in the 1973 U.S. Open at Oakmont. He played a record 63 in the final round...
