My name is Kiran, and I'm a clubaholic.

After hearing so much about Yes! putters I went and bought a Yes Tracy II yesterday. I saw it at a local store, it was fairly inexpensive ($140), and I was nailing everything on the faux green in the store.

Today I got to try it out on the real practice green at my course. At address, it looks identical to my SC newport 2. However, the head's a bit heavier and it doesn't feel quite as well balanced as the SC. The grip is a stunning white, yellow, and black number from Winn which feels pretty nice. The putter also comes with a nice white headcover.

The important part is how this putter rolls the rock. Long, short, and everything in between I was amazed. The putter was super accurate and did everything I asked it to. I really believe in the concentric rings on the putter face which grip the ball and get it rolling rather than skidding much better than a plain milled face. While this isn't a uge deal on short putts, it makes all the difference in the world on long ones.

I think these putters are definatley worth a try. I'm definately taking the Cameron out of my bag for now and if the Yes! performs as well on course as it did on the putting green, I've found a new putter!

Which model did you get? They seem to have only one mallet, and as a mallet guy (not by much, I just think they're easier to line up), that's not so good. Their mallet didn't have a nice looking alignment aid (a triangle?) either... so which did you get? The Tracy II?

Yeah, I got the Tracy II, I'll edit my post and make that a little more clear.

Marilyn almost qualifies. Victoria's a mallet. The other two, they're part of the new genre of "freak mallets." All those weird MOI type putters. Ick. I may be non-traditionalist enough to go with a mallet, but not so non-traditional that I want to look down a putter with holes in it.

I'm with you, I'm much more of a traditionalist, although I did have great success with the

Odyssey 2-ball , and the MacGregor V-Foil is all the rage on tour these days.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist too, but let's face it, I think if we all found something that worked incredibly well and shaved 5 strokes off our average, I think we would all say "tradition be damned"...

Funny you mentioned it.....my YES putter has bumped my Scotty out of the bag for months now.

What about the Valerie, Hannah and Olivia? I'm in the same boat as you not wanting to see something that looks like it belongs in F1 (Taylormade I'm looking at you) when I putt. I had a Yes! Valerie for a while, it was nice but I figured out that I prefer blade putters.

think those are newer models since the original postings 4 years ago

I just got the Tracy II - mallets broke my heart so i've gone back to the blade. 5 rounds in - i'm delighted. Cost me EUR 108 on ebay from the States - they'r'e retailing EUR 179 here. Just got standard lie and length, getting it fitted next week.

Looking forward to rolling in a few putts with it!

The Olivia model is about as mallet as they come.


Sets up very simular to the old Zebra putters.


Great stick....I love the fact that I can adjust the weights (came with wrench and 3 sets) as things change on my home course....greens will hopefully begin rolling pure and fast again very....very soon.

Rock Bottom Golf has a few models for sale, $89.99 + shipping.

That's a good price for a good wand.

A buddy gave me an old ProGear C-Groove II yesterday, he won it a few years ago at a tournament, called it a "Yes! knockoff". It is like the original Tracy Yes! putter. I am now in love with the way this thing rolls.

    • My home course closes its range for maintenance Monday mornings or Tuesday if a holiday falls on the Monday. The sign indicates they re-open by 1 p.m.  That makes sense for them. It's always a busy course, but evening leagues are really big business.  Closing at 3 p.m. seems a bit odd to me, but if that suits the course's clientele, that's what they'll do. I hate mats.  We usually get stuck with the damn things after October. It is a much better thing that the course close the range for a brief period of time once a week and keep the turf up to snuff.    
    • Replace the grip if you want, but a new putter won't matter (unless it makes you practice more).  There's some great putting and short game drills in chapter 9 of Every Shot Counts by Mark Broadie. His drills are also games, with scoring that measures objective skill level.   Also recommend The Putting Bible by Dave Pelz. 
    • A strange round of golf yesterday. I played from the red tees (plays just 5350 yards).  My ballstriking is not very crisp these days, but hopefully I can sort that out soon. It was a round of two halves, as usual. Front 9:  Could not hit fairways or greens at all on the front, 2/9 greens and 2/6 fairways, but still shot +2 on the front. That includes 2 shots in the bunker on hole 4, a horrible misshit that lead to a double on hole 7, topped my driver 80 yards twice and the only 2 fairways I hit were with short irons in hand. 11 putts on the front 9 says a lot about that tretch of holes.  Birdie on both par 5s on the front is allways nice.  37 shots, par 35 Back 9:  A little better ballstriking even though I hit 2 shots OB, leading to a tripple and a double, 4/7 fairway and 4/9 greens. The short game was more off here and I left a couple of chips a bit short. 17 putts is not as good as I'd like it to be. 1 threeputt, but I think I would threeputt from there more often than not, as it was a 60 foot downhill putt with a lot of break where I gave it a little to much speed. Birdie on hole 15 (short par 3) and on hole 17 was nice, and I missed a short birdieputt on, the tough par 3, 11. Had 165 yards in after a decent drive on the par 5 18, but managed the top the approach and miss the green from 90 yards after that and walk off with a bogey after also missing the 5 foot par save. 44 shots, par 37.  81 shots is not bad, but I make to many misstakes from tee, making golf a lot harder than it needs to be. I hit driver on 8 holes: 1 fairway hit (265 yards), 1 OB, hit short and low slices mostly except from the two topped 80 yard ones, avg. 240 yards today. My drives are usually 270-320 yards depending on wind and course, so my driving is not where it should be. My short game is not perfect, but it's certainly better than my hcp right now.  Playing a round at an away course today. There is a curse hanging over that course that needs to be lifted. Good luck me 😉  
    • Our range closes early on Sunday to do a “clean pick”, and reopens at 11:30 on Monday. It is mowed early Monday. The course is closed until noon on Monday’s.
    • If you do get a new putter, get fit first. Try a bunch out at a golf store and see what kinds you like first. Then find a good fitter to get your numbers down, length, lie, loft and overall weight. Heavier putters can help with distance control for some folks. Also, a different grip size may help even if n your current putter. For distance control, having a consistent rhythm helps. In my visit to Erie, Erik had me work on increasing my rhythm a bit because I was a bit too slow and it varied. I have a tempo app on my phone and set my rhythm to 2/4 time at 72 bpm. When I practice putting, I first work on my rhythm for short, medium and long putts. Then I work on read and start line. This drill can help too.
