Putter Fit

1 post in this topic

so i was tooling around my local golf store and hitting some putters. i am growing to hate my insert putters. i have a taylormade ghost that i never take with me because i'm scared i'm going to mar the white finish (it was a gift). i actually dropped it one time on a wedge and took a nice chunk out of the finish. i bought a stainless taylormade with an insert that i started carrying regularly because i didn't care about it, but i just can't stand how off center hits feel.

anyway i was blindly grabbing every used non-insert putter they had in the anser style and trying them out when i came to one that i loved. it had a really nice click when you hit it and it had a repeatable predictable sweet spot. i checked the tag and saw it was $100 and figured this was my new putter. a few more hits and my wife pointed out it was more expensive than i thought it was. it actually said $100 off of what it would be new, which made it $190. i checked out the make so i could remember what it was and it was of course a scotty cameron. the cheesy grip and misread price tag threw me off, but it was a newport 2.5 with the solid face. it was pretty roughed up too and i just couldn't talk myself into getting it right then.

i decided to come back home and do some research and see if i can find something that was similar for a lower price tag. i've been looking around trying to figure out what made this putter so much more comfortable and decided to ask around here.

the putter ends up more level and square when i get to the ball without be trying to be completely robotic. i also like the shaft/head connection. it's not as kicked out as my putters. i tried some other scotty camerons including some new ones, but they didn't feel right, they also had a typical neck like most anser putters.

so anyway i'm looking into putter in that style or for people to just tell me that if i hit it good, buy it. either way i'm open for all recommendations or putters to try. also if you know specifications that this designs follow that would be great. it's hard to search when you don't know the terminology.

here are some pictures of an identical putter so you can see what i'm talking about the neck:

and this is the style i'm trying to get away from:

      I really like my 64* a lot.
    • My Swing (Yossarian)
      I've been Playing Golf for: 9 years   My current handicap index or average score is: 95-100, more or less
      My typical ball flight is: fade
      The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: random hybrid shots Hi everyone, I have been playing for years, but only practicing seriously on the last 3-4. I never took a lesson (that was a big mistake), so over the years I tried to fine tune a flawed swing to obtain some consistency. I reached the point where I can enjoy a round without horrific shots, and probably the worst part of my game are 3-4 putts,  but I still would like your opinion on the long game. So: Irons in the video there are a couple of 7 iron swings. I tend to have decent contact most of the times, ball first; 150-155 yards. The ball flight is usually a fade  (starts right - for a lefty- and then goes left), but it's quite inconsistent, I mix it with slices and pulls.  I am sure if you see the video that there are many parts of the swing I could improve Hybrid in the video there are a couple of H3 face on swings, and a couple from the back. 180 yards. Again, I can't be very consistent, first shot goes slightly left, second in the video slightly right. The main problem is the last one, a fat shot, which is the miss I would like to eliminate. Driver Not very long (220-225), but at least it ends up in the fairway most of the times. Still, any help or advise on the swing is welcome   Thanks in advance! Videos:   
    • Anyone play 5 wedges?
      Yep, that's 5 wedges. I went to the black friday sale, and was toying around with the driver or new shoes thing. I couldn't tell on the driver because the tee in the area wasn't high enough. I also need a lesson on my driver again. This made it shoes. But then I don't hit my 3W. It sits in my bag all summer and does nothing. Maybe I hit it once during the summer. I'm also not comfortable opening the club face on my 60 degree and standing open. I tend to blade the ball when I do that. I've practiced it at the range and no matter what, in a course situation I will blade the ball or chunk it.  So I picked up a Callaway PM Grind 64/10. I tried it out on a 40 yd lob shot and put 24 shots in a row within 3 yds of each other. It felt good in my hands, and I felt confident with it. I didn't have to make any swing adjustments to hit the shot. And no, it was not on sale. So the 3W is gone and the 64 replaces it. My inconsistent mid game causes me to have to rely heavily on my short game. Until that improves I'm not going to handicap myself further. Besides, the 64 can come in handy playing from pot bunkers. Count me as another 5 wedge player.
    • How to hit Sand/Bunker Shots
      How have I never seen this thread before? I'm surprised that you'd use the same technique in firm/wet sand as you would in dry/fluffy sand.  I'm always feel in wet/firm sand that I can't get the clubhead sufficiently into the sand underneath the ball or that it'll get stuck and that I'll blade it across the green.
