Well, we had a forcast of 6000 for 1986. He used it starting in Jan. and played terribly all Spring, but we had sold 20,000 just before the Masters. Internally it was a big big success even before the tournament. We were scared to death he was going to stop using it and kill the sales because he was playing so bad at the time, Ha Ha! We thought we had really sold some putters as we had sold 1200 pro line putters the previous year.
Anyway, Monday morning after the tournament we booked 5000 before noon. We sold about 150,000 that year only because that was all we could make, and about 350,000 over the next two and a half years before it was replaced with a mid sized stainless model, the Response LT. Jack continued to use the LT or a Nicklaus version of it for almost 10 years.
The Macgregor plant in Albany was 250,000 sq ft, and 6 weeks after Jack's win all you could see inside there were aluminum putters! You couldn't find the other clubs there were so many putters in work.
That's the kind of fun that will keep you coming back!
