Its right on the heel to center of the putter face as i got mad and slammed my putter into the back of the top part of my shaft of my lob wedge, its a ping anser 3. Will this have any affect on my putts as to how the ball rolls? Does anybody know?

no just the rubber end of the grip is torn off lol. so the end of my wedges shaft is imprinted on the putter face toward the center.lol at least i hit it solid lmao!!!!

i'm still not sure how you managed to dent the face of an anser short of putting it in a vice and slamming it with a hammer.

It affects the roll if you believe it affects the roll . Putting is so mental. For example, I remember 25 years ago I played a great escape from the base of a greenside tree but banged a root in the process. I really couldn't see any damage, but I felt something wasn't right. I lost my mojo with it and retired it soon thereafter, never to be used again.

I cant even put into words how much i love redhawk its such an all around challenging course from tee to green the fairways may look generous and a couple are but if you dont hit the right spot on the fairway you be in some deep rough.you cant just hit everyfairway in the middle it will end up in some nastly places also all the grass bunkers and slope and teired greens they had the champion tour q school there every year

    • Collin Morikawa putting is atrocious. He has missed 4 putts within 4 feet just in the front 9 of the third round. He also missed 2 putts within 6 to 7 feet.
    • Hi Erik - I posted a swing on my old My Swing site, but I noticed that it got buried into the old content. Is there a way delete or archive the old content. Not sure if others will be able to find the new swing I posted. Thanks. 
    • Thank you. I just purchased 2 used Cleveland CBX wedges with 54 and 58 degrees loft for $100. I never hit full shot with the wedges. With 1/3 shots, I get 40 and 30 yards with these clubs. Anything within 100 yards, I used my AW (50 and 75), PW (60 and 90) and 9 (70 and 100) with either 1/3 or 2/3 swings.
    • I sort of had the opposite problem. For a number of years, maybe more than 10, I have been playing with multifocal glasses and had adjusted to the narrow vision field, the need to look at things through the proper part of the glasses, etc. I had seemingly no problem playing golf with them, except at dusk when my depth perception seemed slightly different, and taking my eyes off the ball for even a minute moment would mean I could never could get back on it. With my current swing (and improved) swing, I noticed that when I take the club back, my head/eyes turn away from the ball slightly and due to the narrower than normal field of vision of the multifocal glasses, the ball is now blurry at the top of the backswing, and that I can't regain the focus on the ball before impact. Sure, I can play with that but what if I didn't have to? As my far vision has slightly improved with age, while my near vision is essentially the same as before and essentially all the golf activities are with the far vision, I decided to try some sunglasses for golf made with only the long distance prescription. Voila, no more ball out of focus. There are two drawbacks to this approach: a) I need to lift my glasses to deal with the scorecard (or the phone where I record my score) and b) the problem at dusk is even more severe now as I must revert to my multifocal glasses when the light is too low to handle sunglasses... and spend time to readjust the vision to the multifocal lenses and hit a ball now pretty guaranteed to be out of focus. I try to book tee times when I can finish more than an hour to half an hour ahead from the official sunset time. But overall, I think it was a good change. PS: Contact lenses were never an option due to a) astigmatism and b) I once, many may years ago, had to fight an eye doctor for several hours to get them out of my eyes after an afternoon try!
    • The thing with contacts is that the lens is sort of like being part of the eye, as opposed to having a lens(glasses) that is offset away from the eye, which can introduce distortions. I just have the distance type contacts, and just use them to play golf. I don't know have experience with progressive contacts, but they are available. My single vision contacts work well, but I would like to try the progressives.
