I understand your point....however you can twist, bend, and contort you upper body to make the marks line up....what are your arms doing? I have been to Todd Sones Coutour fitting school, several times. All my issues have had little to do with head and a lot to do with what happens with the arms. Go to his website. Not saying his putters are the best because most high qaulity putters can be adjusted just the same.
If you would get fitted irons or a driver why wouldn't you get fit for the club that can easily make up 50% of your strokes. Try http://www.coutourgolf.com as a good reference site.
Puring or spining is simply aligning the "pure" flex of the shaft in some orientation with the club face. Here is the best simplification of the process. The shaft is held at the butt and the tip is flexed in one plane. When the shaft is released is oscillates in and elliptical or oblong circular pattern. Puring simply finds the plane at which a shaft oscillates in a straight line. In reality the best shaft "those used by Tiger" oscillate in a straight line. I have...
Not to be critical put lets do a little math. $400 driver = 18 strokes per round $500 irons= 18 strokes per round $150 putter = 36 stroker per round Heck good bag costs more than your willing to spend on a putter, which makes up half of a par 72 round. Check out http://www.coutourgolf.com for a nice option in the putter world. Todd Sones forgot more about putting than most of us will ever know.
I introduced my wife to golf and have purchased every thing she owns. Buyer beware when it comes to women's clubs. I would suggest getting a beginner an affordable set of clubs to get her started. I bought a complete set of pings with ladies graphite shafts, driver etc. BIG waste of money.!!!!!! These were great beginner clubs that as her interest grew she quickly outgrew.(less than 6 months) After trying to teach her....NOT HAPPENING(a whole new thread) I got her a...
After using head covers for years, I tried to be cool and not use them on my new set......After a couple of months I started noticing little nicks on my irons and wedges. I was able to restore them with a little ultrafine scotchbrite and on went the head covers. I suspect reason Tiger and such don't use them is because they get a new set every month. Plus they have factory reps to restore them each week. Final Thought.... For all the talk about grooves,...
After failing to have any lasting consistancy in my putting game for any length of time, I was fitted to a Coutour putter. Not only is a putter length an issue, but lie, and head weight come into play. If you take a stock putter and cut the shaft you change the swing weight. Coutour changes the head weight to match each shaft length. Check out http://www.coutourgolf.com
Bought a set of 25's last fall after trying everything Mizuno had and several other brands. I was in the same position. Not a great player but wanting and willing to get better. Personally I think the concept of forgivness is highly overrated. Sure there is a difference between a set of 60 and 19's. However between a set of 19 and 25's I don't see any huge difference. I feel the 25's are closer to a true players type club and will give you the feedback to be a...
Bought my wife some Ping Ladies with graphite shafts 2 years ago. She hates them. She hits better with my clubs than hers. She likes the heavier feel and feedback. In reality my clubs should be too long and way to stiff for her. Any suggestions would be great. She is very athletic but does not have a fast swing speed. All my local pros and shops say just stick with the pings. Heck in the men's section there are limitless combinations even within one brand. In...
Here is my understanding....Any ball sitting on the green will settle into a "hole" in the putting surface. Either a hole left by somone else or simply gravity pulling the ball down into the grass. The loft is supposed to lift the ball out of the hole and provide forward rolling motion. Too much loft and the ball bounces. Too little and the ball jumps out of the hole creating inconsistant roll. I have heard that 4 deg is good, because most people take about 1 deg out...
