I still have not found any info re: lie and angle BUT I did finally find some stats on the Odyssey website. Weight will be heavier (400 vs 350) so the opposite of the standard head to taller shaft example you gave. Light headed putter would definitely be a disaster... But I am thinking heavier head on shorter putter might actually not be bad?? I think some of the counter balanced putters do just that?? I think I can live with the heavier head but now I am even more...
Can a Odyssey #7 MID that was originally a belly length putter be shortened to 35 or 36 inch? I seem to remember the shaft offset & bend was altered for the taller model? I do not have the putter in hand... it will be a hand me down... The person's intentions are good so I would like to accept the putter but hate to ruin it. I know the head design and like it but am just not sure the cut down will go well? Originally I thought cut it down and add a SuperStroke and I...
When I went thru my finger pain it was late in the season... TMG.... too much golf had set in. I did discover my grips were hard from a years use... I also discovered  I was  re-positioning my grip on the club just before my swing. I would grip the club with my left hand and then re-position my grip to a stronger position. Because my hand was already on the club I think this eventually was the problem. (friction) BTW I still have some pain, and still re-position my...
As I approach my 70th round of golf this year I again have the Driver Itch. First some history, Last year I started the season with a trusty Tour Edge Exotics CB1 10.5 degree. About a third of the way thru the season the head stated coming loose. Either thru my use or their screw up when I had the club repaired they found the shaft tip had begun to split. Remedy was to trim 1" from tip and add 1" to the butt. Absolutely deadened the club. I put the Tour Edge on the shelf...
Old guys playing from the tips ruining the game... now that is funny. We play the course as it should be played. Par 4's reached in 2 then putt for your birdie... Par 5's reached in 3 (occasionally in 2) then make your putt for eagle or par all while walking and finishing in well under 4 hours. Seeing how poorly they played the Par 3's made it clear their game was Drive for Show. I still feel there is no defense for playing tees far too easy for you. Call me old fashion...
I played later in the day today and ended up playing in front of young yahoos. My course is not overly long (6650 yds)  but is a challenge do to blind shots, doglegs, and the putting. My group of 60 year old's walked and played from the blues as we always do. The young yahoos rode in carts and played from the white tees. It was clear from the first hole they should not have been playing from the white tees. While on the 1st green their tee shots nearly reached the green......
I learned my lesson about cheering for a putt a number of years ago. I was playing with an older gentleman (70's) who was clearly a serious golfer. I made the mistake twice of saying nice putt only to have it lip out on him. The first time he let it slip by. But after the second lip out he scolded me with an over the top Mafia accent.... "Don'ta you talka to my ball". The humor was there BUT I knew not to do it again. He continued with the accent " Don'ta do knowa good to...
We have a regular group of golfers at my course that 'buy' a cart for the back nine. Course shuttles the cart out to the tenth tee. They just fold up their push cart and strap it on the back next to their bag. Perfect combination of walking and riding.
One situation where I frequently use a riding cart is when I am playing a course for the first time. Being able to peek ahead is a help and does speed up play when you are on a strange course. It is easy to lose balls on an unfamiliar course where you do not know how far shots carry. With a cart it is easy to look that 10 yards further where you might not expect your ball to have carried. BTW Today my partner and I won a 2 man team match to advance into our club...
Thank you. Labeled pictures were the clincher.  Especially the pictures showing how the FACE changes. I really had the exact opposite pictured in my confused version. Mystery solved.
