Zippo, today's a good day to get out and practice with your putter. Blue skies. Just don't take the Hannegan road.

Good idea. I'll probably just run over to Grandview and practice for a while. Lots of work needed on my chipping, too. Ahhh, who am I kidding. Lots of work needed on my whole game!

Thanks, @Double Mocha Man. I putted pretty well today. Not that there still isn't plenty of room for improvement, of course, but I'm not feeling as lost as I was and not feeling like the toe of the putter is gonna drag on the ground with the new lie.

If your lie is 4 degrees off with 4 degrees of loft, you would be approx 1.8 inches offline at 30 ft.

We have the same relation ship between a face angle thats 1* open or closed to path as we have for 1* up or 1* flat for lie angles, they cause the same tilt on the spin axis, on this case as roll.
At 8 yards (24 feets), we dont hit the cup at all if lie is more than 1* off, (and the cup is 4.25") so at 4* off and 30 feets, way outside the cup, just try it yourself. If lie angle on putters was no more important than that we would all play 72* or what ever they deliver as "standard"

No. That’s not accurate.

Howard, that's not accurate. The influence of lie angle diminishes as we decrease the loft towards 0. A one degree up or flat lie will not equate to anything close to a 1 degree face angle change. Unless I missed it, I did not see anything in the link specifically about this?

• Does anyone know if the KF Tour start is going to be moved from the Bahamas. And if so, where? Thanks
• Have you tried not using a glove? I know that isn't the question you asked, but it was the only problem you were stating. I've never been a fan of gloves and I really don't see why they are needed at all. If you can swing all day without taking off/putting on a glove, then just skip it altogether I say.
• Day 136.  Schedule permitted 20 minutes and I was near a golf course (the par-3 night-lit one near my soon-to-be-former house), so I putted.  6' "make them all" followed by 4'.  Somehow made more 6' on first pass than 4' (6 vs 5), but finished 4' in two iterations (5,5,2) versus more for 6'.  Intermediate goal is to make all 4' within two passes (and then do an around-the-world becomes the goal).   Not sure an appropriate goal for 6', maybe making (6,3,3) or (6,3,2,1) a few times in a row would be good?
• Hi,  I'm a woman, 6' tall. It's all about swing speed, what feels good, and how well you can control it. Rogues are on sale right now and they're a good driver. I assume that's your reason for choosing them. The men's Callaway Rogue driver is 45.5". The women's is 44.5". But there really is no standard. It's all about what works best for you.  I play a Callaway Great Big Bertha Epic and cut the shaft to 44.5" for control. I use a "men's" R shaft because of my swing speed which is in the low mid-90s.  If yours is in the range of 80 - 95 you can use a Regular flex shaft. If it's in the 75 - 85 mph range you can use a men's light flex shaft (they don't call it senior anymore... lol because people don't want to feel old). Women's flex is for speeds below 75.  You'll find this out when you go on a launch monitor at the golf shop. You'll do this before you buy the club, right? Make sure you're fit for the club. Here's the deal, if the 45.5" is too long, you can always have the shaft "butt cut" 1". It will make the club feel lighter to swing but won't reduce the mass of the club head at all. You do not have to add lead tape to the club head and bring up the swing weight. But before you do that I'd wrap some electrical tape around the butt end of the grip about 1/8" thick with the bottom of that 1" down from the end of the grip. Then take it to the range, maybe play a practice round or two with it and see if you like that. If you liked it better longer, it's easy to remove the tape.
