• 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.
