Ummm....   Even if you go strictly by "feel", stubbing the putter, missing the center, having the wrong putter head speed, etc...  is going to result in a miss.   Since the distance the feet are spread apart is based on a "feel", I am not sure how this is really any different than a guy with a "finely tuned feel for distance."  Both methods rely on feels.  They really on differ in how that player uses the feel.
Not a fan of Brent Musberger but he asked a question at the start of this broadcast (Georgia Tech/Miss. St.) that is looking to be a really good question:   Has the SEC been rated too high all year?  To be fair, I think the real question is, has the SEC west been overrated (said because there has been a lot of commentary on how the SEC east is not as strong as the west)..      Given the score from the TCU/Ole Miss game and the way this GT/Miss St game is going, one has...
 Said in response to a comment about OSU losing to Va Tech (a team that ended the regular season at 6-6)  Different tune today...
Says the guy who thought Sherman marched through Alabama....    LOL   Anyway, Dahmer was born in Wisconsin but from age 6 through high school (Revere), he was in Ohio...   Back on topic,  I truly hope Ohio State does well against Alabama.   Not because I like OSU but because I would like to see the B1G be relevant again..  
Congratulations!!    Hopefully this is just the start of a freefall for your handicap!!
The belly has a lie angle of 72 degrees. The standard and counterbalanced versions have a lie angle of 70 degrees. With irons a Callaway rep told me shortening them makes the lie flatter by 1 degree per half inch. Don't know if that applies equally to putters or not. Regarding the mid head on a standard length shaft, Odyssey did that at one time and called them "heavy putters" I have a Metal-X Dart heavy putter with a 35" shaft. It's what I have been using for quite...
Quote:While that is true most of the time (as evidenced by the increasingly light shafts and drivers being put out on the market), it is not always the case.    Once in a while I go to Golf Galaxy and Golfsmith to try out different clubs.   My swing speed is always at least 5 mph faster when swinging drivers with a 70+gram shaft than when I swing the 50-60 gram versions.   I used to think that was weird until I read a couple of articles that discussed this.  (I tried to...
Par 5, second shot.   225yds to the center of a green that slopes downhill front to back.  Pin was in the back.   Hit a 3 hybrid to the center and it trickled down to 2ft for an eagle.    Not only my best shot of the week but my best shot ever... 
I wish I knew for sure, so I could continue to duplicate it!!     About the only thing I can say I was consciously working on was course management, trying to get GIR or NGIR (GIR+1), etc..   When I had a shot from a bad location/lie, I started looking for the "safe" shot to get the ball back in play and give me a shot to save par or at worst, bogey.   The other thing I did was, if I was in-between clubs on an approach shot, I picked my club based on where the pin was...
4 rounds since my last post, including the past two days..  80, 93, 80, 80.    80 is my best score ever and being able to back it up with two more gives me hope that I am finally getting somewhere..    Sadly, I can't post those rounds since we are in an off season here until sometime next year..   Changing home courses begining Jan. 1.   The new course includes a par 6.   It has a slightly lower CR and slope but it has always kicked my ass..   I expect my scores to creep...
