Bradley Converse of Bradley Putters joins us for episode 183 of Breaking Par with Bernard Sheridan.
Bradley worked for 10 years as a military contractor designing military equipment to survive nuclear blasts. in December 2016, the company he worked for told him that he would have to move to Virginia to keep his job. He respectfully declined, knowing that he was ultimately called to serve the Southern Oregon community. While at the Real Mother Goose store in Portland on Black Friday, he got the idea to build golf putters out of burl wood. he called his friend Greg Dahl at Oregonburls.com, acquired some Olive burl, and made two prototypes. Within one week of the idea, he had putters in golfers’ hands. They loved the feel, and he knew he was on track. Here is more from Bradley. ” We don’t use any CNC machines, only saws, sanders, and a drill press. Our decades of experience with engineering and woodworking ensure tight tolerances and deadly accurate putters.
We hired our first employee back in January of 2016, Brett Lucas, who happens to be a woodworker that loves golf. We’ve now got a few more, and we spend each day hand-crafting one-of-a-kind masterpieces that drain putts, look like art, and help build our community in Grants Pass, Oregon. One of our mottos is to always buy the closest thing, not the cheapest thing. Buying a Bradley Putter means that you support American-Made, American-Sourced, and Family-Run Small Business in Small Town America. We stand behind our products, and know that you will love your putter as much as we loved hand-crafting it.”
