Agreed, I don't think that it goes against the spirit of the game. If these putters are against the "rules" shouldn't we all be hitting hand-carved clubs and feather-stuffed leather balls? P.S. I use a regular shafted putter.
I currently use a driver that I have loved and hit well for a few years. It is a Ping G5 9 degree with an Aldila NV 65-S 350 Shaft. I can work the ball left-to-right and right-to-left with it equally as well, I want something that I can work the ball with and something that is that looks more traditional. I am currently thinking about the Titleist 913D3. Do any of you play this particular model and can give me your thoughts on it? Thanks!
THIS! I also like the bigger grip (I use a Super Stroke Slim 3.0), it helps me to remember to use my shoulders in the putting stroke rather than in my wrist/hands. I would recommend trying one if you are having trouble on the greens. My putts per round went down significantly when I changed to the Super Strike grips. Hope this helps!
This maybe a little late for a reply but I just came across this thread. I live in Southeast Georgia where the humidity in the spring and summer stays around 80-90% and my grips get pretty sweaty so I have used a simple solution to clean my grips for a few years now. I mix comet cleanser and water into a paste and then scrub the grips with a non-wire club brush. rinse them and tehm let them air dry. The grips are super tacky and clean as if they were brand new. No solvent...
I am wanting to get a handicap index without joining a golf club. I am not financially able to join a club around where I live (college student) but I play most weekends. I have been invited to play in a few tournaments and they require a handicap index. Is there any way I can receive a handicap without joining a country club? Thanks in advance and hit 'em straight!
