Cure Putters

7 posts in this topic

Been reading the Directed Force putter thread and I was in my local golf club fitting/demo section and ran across the craziest looking putter I've ever seen. They had four different Cure Putters RX1 and RX2. Looks like you can adjust the lie angle and then lock it in place. If you are not too flat, the putter will stand by itself, like the putter Dr. J used to promote. Hit a few putts and it felt pretty good. I was thinking about checking one out for a few days demo but I'm leaving for vacation in a few days so I will probably wait until I return. Anyone had any experiences with this putter? Thanks.

Hit some putts with it at the PGA Show this year, it was okay for me, definitely a different look. I found it tough to aim.

Rather than start a new thread I figured I'd just resurrect an old thread since I picked up the Cure RX2 Tour today from local golf shop to test.

Initial thoughts,

I liked the concept of changing the lie angle and weights, plus it's center shafted and can be converted for right handed use.  I also like that the putter will stand on it's own on a flat surface which could be useful for aiming and keeping the handle dry when the grass is wet.

I'm not thrilled with the sound the putter makes when striking a ball, it sounds kind of cheap.

Many people aim center shafted clubs a bit left. Aiming correctly is about the relationship of the eyes to the overall shape of the head, sightlines, and hosel. But I do see your point about the putter staying where it is aimed.

It helps the relationship if you fall in love with the putter.

Good luck with the test.

I've found that by adjusting the lie angle I could get a perfect setup with my eyes over the sight lines.  I took it out today on the practice greens and so far I'm impressed with my ability to aim it and get the ball to roll on the line I want.   On one of the holes, the club pro uses a chalk line from about 20' out to the hole so we can practice aiming and consistently rolling the ball on the line, this putter did well on both.   I'm a bit surprised at how well the ball rolls off of it given the face of the putter is completely smooth (no grooves or milled finish).

It got a few weird stares from people as it looks a bit like a science project and it still sounds like I'm putting with a soda can but I'll take some abuse if it reduces my number of putts per round.  I've also owned enough putters to know that all new putters (new to me) work well during the honeymoon stage so we'll see how it goes tomorrow during an actual round.

Anybody else using one of these? I saw a LPGA player using one the other day.

A lot of the ideas sure seem to make sense. I like aligning to a nice big line down the middle though.

Yeah, they are good putters but they take time to adjust and get used to because they don't feel like a typical putter.
