The LPGA needs Cheyenne ... she's american, occasionally shows she can really play some good golf, and she looks really good in a golf dress. Political correctness aside & no racial intention ... the whole "korean phone book" thing that's becoming the LPGA seems to be wearing on alot of people - we need more good american players (ones that look like her will undoubtedly improve TV ratings).
They are very nice putters. I very much like the weighting. I bought one in 2000 and felt that it was much better than anything else I had tried. So I kept it for years. It was replaced by two different putters. One was another Scotty Cameron (since I had credit I didn't know what to do with) and an eBay bought 1967 Nicklaus putter for $15.
Both of those putters are equally nice. One happens to cost more and I was willing to pay for it. So it worked out. Scotty Cameron's are considered very nice, high end putters. If you like it, go for it. But I wouldn't say they are necessarily better than anything else. How it works for you, or anyone, is completely subjective here.
That's because there is no possible twist of logic that can make this a reasonable act. Your buddy got screwed by a clueless handicap committee. No possible justification for what they did. There is no fairness or logic in modifying a player's handicap on the basis of a single score, and doing so because of a single scramble score is sheer stupidity.
For one thing, a net 62 is not an exceptional scramble score, at least not in my experience. If it was a two man team competition, then 62 is pretty good, but it's still a scramble, and as such, a lot of really bad shots get tossed and never count for anything.
Something is very not right with your club's handicap committee.
