There were seven winners, one of them, Bill
Bonney of Georgia, won a Bettinardi BB1F
putter! It's based on a classic head shape, in
beautiful black with green accents. The BB1F
includes a neck that is ridge-milled and fades right
into the head of the putter itself; allowing for a
conventional smoothed out stroke. Congratulations
Bill, we'll mail your putter on Monday.
