• Name: John R. Legg

• Age: 66

• City of residence: Victoria

• Current title: Founder of Tejas Mesquite Putters

• First job: My first real job was at a machine shop in Shreveport, La.

• What it taught me: I learned pride in my work and how to run a lathe. You have to be precise, or it doesn't work out, and that really helped with the putters I make now.
