About Us

Six years ago I moved to Maui to work on Charter boats. Shortly after
moving here I met Hal Pestana who knew I was working on fishing
boats and presented me with one of his custom lures to welcome me
to the Maui fishing clan. Little did he know that lure was about to
change a lot of peoples lives-including his own. The lure he gave me
not only produced choke fish, but also started what has become a
great friendship. That lure also brought back the passion Hal had to
make lures which had been gone for many years. Not only did Hal and
I have a passion for Golf or as Hal would say, “Chasing that little
white ball”. One day while playing Golf with Hal on the Island of Lanai
Hal showed me a putter he had received in a silent auction at a gun
show. It was a replica of a 20 guage shotgun shell made of purple
heart wood. After seeing it I asked him if he thought we could make a
putter using a marlin lure like the ones he was making. His reply was,
“I’m not sure, why not” little did I know where this would head…..
Now that I had the idea it was time to figure out how to make it happen.
First I checked out to see if anyone had ever made one, turned out know
one had . Now I needed to talk to a golf club maker. Thats where Keith
Anderson owner of South Maui golf & repair(
as seen on the right in photo). As I
was asking lot of questions Keith stop me and said " can you make the
club head weight true to a real putter?" My response was sure because I
use lead for my insert. Keith said if I can well now I've made the a usable
putter not something just to hang on the wall. With lots of tries I was able to
almost match the club head weight in both my putters styles to what the
USGA remands in a putter.  Keith is also the one that installs all my shafts
and grips on my putters, I owe him lots of thanks for this help and insight
