I do that kind of thing all the time, not necessarily the -4 part, but shooting low 70s with multiple 3 putts. While we are on the topic of putting, I know equipment doesn't play a large role with putting specifically, its all feel, but do you think the added confidence of a new putter would help at all?
But at the same time, I would love new equipment.
@Mr. Desmond: Do you have any you would suggest specifically for me to try?
After reading the above, I suggest you prioritize.
1. Get an Edel Putter Fitting and Aimpoint Lesson
Indiana is not far from Erie PA. I know it's all relative, but I live in Texas, and we think nothing of driving 240 mi to get somewhere good.
See Erik - get fit for an Edel and get an Aimpoint Lesson from him. That will do you the most good for your game.
Heck, while you're at it, have him fit you for some Edel Wedges - you may not buy them, but they'll be next on your list.
2. That may leave you enough money to fit your current irons. The problem with buying new irons in stock form is the stock setup and inconsistent build for superior players like yourself. If you're playing competitively, though, I'd think you'd want conforming irons - and the R7 TPs are not conforming.
Tell us what you like and don't like about your irons. If your irons are not holding you back, but your short game is the weakness, attack it first, and get irons later. That's your best revenge.
