Designing a Golf Club III

I've updated the design. 

 

Aesthetics

- Turned the rectangular cut-out into a half-moon

- Removed the lettering and left the logo

 

Practical

- Cut the putter width from 1.5 inches (I think) to 1 inch to cut weight from the design

- Added 3° of loft to the front of the putter, up from 0°

 

In the first image, there is a blue line coming from the center of the putter. According to the in-program CG function, (thank you for the idea @boogielicious and thank you to @saevel25 for pointing out the CG issue), the CG is in the direct center of the head. 

Cutting that half inch of solid weight made it very easy to get the putter head into normal limits. It sits at 296 grams on its own, which is a little light, but with the shaft and grip I plan on putting on it, it'll be right where I want it. 

As I said before, I'm on a good path.

FWIW my putter weighs 616g all together. Grip, shaft, etc. about 200g out of that. 296 is light.

It's definitely on the light side. From the research I've done, putter heads tend to fall between 290-340 grams, with the heavier end becoming more and more common. I like a lighter putter, but if I were to make this in larger quantities, I would probably add about 50 grams back in. 

I'm tooling around with a version that has an aluminum insert and a much bigger body, so that I could get more mass in the heel and toe, but I want to finish this iteration first

    • Birdied 10, 12, and 14 yesterday.  It's the third or fourth time I've birdied 12 this year, but 10 and 14 were new ones for me.

    • I know I've posted in this thread before, but since it came up again in my "recents" I figured I'd take a look at my current numbers.  I'm up to 308 courses now, and will add at least 4 more this year, two of them next weekend in OH.
    • I've been Playing Golf for: 10ish years. My current handicap index or average score is: Handicap is 2.1, average tournament scores 76-81 My typical ball flight is: Pull cut The shot I hate or the "miss" I'm trying to reduce/eliminate is: My "big" round blow up miss is a massive push slice (only happens with my driver). I'd also like to get rid of the steepness of my swing. Videos:  This is a my normal swing, I know I'm very steep in my downswing and I'm hitting a massive pull. There's also other crap I want to fix, mainly in my downswing my lead arm breaks down and I think I flip at the ball a bit but that I think is for later. I'm headed to the range in a 10 mins so I'll try to get so me good face on shots. Also see how in my slow swings you can see the ball for longer, it doesn't disappear to the right behind my body, that's the "look" I want. I want when I hit the ball to be able to see the ball flight in the air for a while. I also know in my slow swing I hit a straight slice, I think this is because I'm not used to having to close the face much with my old swing? I know when I get steep, I can't really release the club that much because I'll just hit a huge pull hook, so I hold off. Now that I am coming in shallow though, since I am not used to getting a full release, I have my clubface way open. The other idea I have is that my handpath is too "out" in my downswing but I'm not sure, still messing with it.   Any advice to help expedite my learning process would be greatly appreciated.
