Hey all, Here are my issues,

1) I played a Scotty Circa #1, and i putted real well with it, but at times it felt a bit to soft, kinda like hitting a Blade pure.

2) I dont release the toe very well, so would a putter like the black series #9 work well for me? Something heel shafted?

3) belly putter? have kinda been considering one..would this maybe help with the toe flow?

4) Kneck Bends- HATE! Offset, even the half offset in m big oaks T'Ville is driving me crazy, and the plumbers kneck in my newport is just ugly.

So i guess im asking for a putter that is soft but not way soft, heel shafted, and with no shaft offset, and the advantages/disadvantages of a Belly putter.

Thanks!

Brian

Reason im asking is, theres to much snow on the ground to do any putter testing, and the "greens" at golfsmith just dont give me a fantastic feel for putters..

Since you say you do not release the toe very well, have you considered a center-shafted model. I know they are not for everyone, but they work great for the square-to-square putting strokes and for those that do not release the putter head well. I think they simplify the stroke because you don't have to think as much about the arc on the stroke. I personally play with a center-shafted Scottie Cameron Futura Phantom at the moment and like the feel of it. I definitely putt better with center-shafted models.

Check out the new Cleveland Classics series, great putters for the money. I'd also look into a center shafted putter, if you really can't fix your releasing problem.

I agree, 2-Balls are perfect, and are a great value too. I have seen them for under $100 on various golf deal sites.

I actually upgraded to a 2-Ball from a puter I took from a putt putt place. Sliced at least 10 strokes off my game.

Hey all, Here are my issues,

use a cpl putters (depending on green conditions) golf over in boston area - played 10 days ago - nice - 42 and windy. mizuno black carbon - lighter for faster greens - best touch; see more milled mfgp black [just bought 3Mw - check it out- you might like; small mallet]. the see mores are for spring/late fall/winter greens. good luck - warmer there sooner than here! tomm

Just like he said a center shafted putter would probably do you good. Scotty just came out w/ a kind of center shafted(not sure what the shaft is called) studio select squareback putter heres the link

I also like center shafted models and may go to one soon but I have a problem, I love blade style putters, right now I'm playing a Odyssey white hot tour #1 I love the feel it's got a nice firm click to it, but have noticed with center shafted putters that you really don't have to do anything but swing the putter it makes the putting stroke simple

I have an Odyssey Black Series i #9 and it is such a great looking putter. I still have a problem releasing the toe sometimes. I've been looking at the Rife Bimini which has even more toe flow, feels solid, not too soft.

    • How? 🙂 Day 14 – Moving or Touching Loose Impediments or Touching Sand in a Bunker
    • If I am understanding this correctly, I've been able to, for over two and a half years now, move stones in bunkers, as long as doing so doesn't move my ball, same as I can do on the fairway or in the rough?   I either missed this entirely or forgot about it.   
    • It was explained to me that they wanted people to remove stones, but not to give them so much freedom that they  could just go messing about willy nilly and moving their ball. So, what they came up with did that.
    • Previously the LR caused a stone to be treated like a MO in all respects. Now the rule doesn't.  Why not?  Why shouldn't the Rule simply deem a stone in a bunker as either a LI or treat it by Rule as one? A safety conscious player could incur a penalty for being safe about a stone but not a walnut.
