I have a Guerin Rife 2 Bar Blade...and love it. I really like the feel, the sound, the roll, and its resistance to twisting and miss hits. It's also really easy to line up. Can't think of any cons...can usually roll to within 2 ft, so no complaints.

I was fortunate enough to speak to Bobby Grace, a couple of years ago, about the fact that I'm 5'6" and would like a smaller, heavier putter. He built me a 6.4k mallet that is 32", 3 degrees upright with his heaviest weights inserted ( apparently this model allows one to adjust weights in the bottom of the putter ). I loved the putter from the moment I received it in the mail. I have three Cameron putters and one Bettinardi putter. I've owned three Oddessy putters. This MacGregor Bobby Grace 6.4 is the best putter I've ever used. I have tried others since I got the Grace and I just can't seem to find one I like better or trust more. Of course, putters are such a personal thing. I really like the retro look of the Bullseye, as well as the Anser style, but I just seem to do better with mallets. I have taken a lot of ribbing for the look of the putter I use; for example, " Been branding any cattle with that thing?" But, ultimately, I can take any kind of kidding about which putter I use as long as I get the ball into the hole.

I bought a Ping Anser 2 BeCu on ebay 2 years ago and would never use another putter. It is a good roller on fast or slow greens. I think I would like to be buried with it so I can use it on the hallowed greens in the sky.

The majority of rounds I play are with my SC studio design 3.5. But I like to switch between my SC 3.5, SC Newport Beach, and an Odyssey 2 ball white steel blade. All of my putters have SC Baby T grips and are 33 inches in length with standard lofts and lies not sure of the exact weights though. You can't beat the feel of a SC putter. My Odyssey also has great feel just not quite the same level as the SC's but helps me the most when I'm having alignment issues

Got an Odyssey White Hot #5 CS, 34" coming my way. Haven't used it on real grass yet but it was magic as soon as I starting making contact with it in a store.

I currently use Odyssey White Steel 2-ball CS 34". Though I had dilemma between White Steel and White Hot XG. Too bad White Hot XG doesn't have 2-ball CS, so White Steel won.

One thing I really love about XG is the face insert. It's so soft as if you're hitting with your pillow.

I bought a (ugh!) ugly long Ping putter this last week. (OK, its the same model Nick O'Hern used to kick Tigers butt in Arizona with) Only reason for this was the dreaded yips afflicted me last year and so I tried the long putter for the last 3 months of '06 and those damn ****** were no longer present. Now the big question is: to suspend it from the chin with the toe down and putt with a vertical shaft, or to cut the shaft a little and fix it to the sternum with the lie lying correctly on the ground.......anyone got a good idea about this? I went to the puttlab system two weeks ago and out of the 5 members from our club team who underwent the test, my chin-suspended putter had the least flaws.....but I feel I am maybe not hitting the sweet spot by having the toe of the putter down during the swing.....thanks if anyone has an idea about this....maybe (cos I am a n00b here) I will post this in another forum as well.....I dont seem to be able to activate my membership here properly.....oh wellll.......

I have the Yes! Sophia 34" blade. Had a White Steel 2-ball, tried the Sophia @ a golf shop, and bought it. I wasn't even looking for a new putter. I had the 2-ball in the trunk last year, just in case, never took it out, so i gave it to my son. Nice weight, great feel.

I've got the 35" YES! Callie putter with the C-Groove technology. It feels pretty sweet!

I stumbled on the Ping Ug-le. I was sure I was going for some other putter, but I kept hitting it and comparing it to several others. I found at the end of about an hour of putting... the Ugle kept sinking the puts.

A bonus for me is lining up. I've always been very natural at judging weight, but lining up was an issue sometimes. The Ug-le is probably one of the easiest I've ever lined up.

    • Obviously I can't offer much in the way of advice but in the last year my 5w has gone from one of my most trusted clubs to one that causes anxiety. What has helped me is coming down at a slightly steeper angle of attack and simply concentrating on hitting a bit more down on the ball... not like an iron, but less of that "sweeping" attack as is often suggested. Good luck and I hope someone can provide some useful advice.
    • I am extremely comfortable chipping from the rough compared to the fairway. I am not exactly sure why, and I know I need to get some lessons. (I plan on getting some in the spring since its already so late in year up here in PA.) In my approach I would much rather put it left, right, or far then to leave it short. I feel this way because its a lot easier to get the ball up and down sitting right were you want it. I am talking from within 40 yards. When in the fairway I have distance control problems within 40 yards. I feel its because of the inconsistency of the launch angle. If I hit it to hard the angle is to low and I launch over the green and if I hit it to soft the angle is to high and just comes up short.  I just wanted to see if anyone else felt the same way or if this was typical for a high handicapper to like the rough from within 40 yards?
    • That's a substantial improvement. I'm certain I won't experience any increase in distance but at this point, distance isn't even on the radar. I practiced a bit more tonight and decided shortening the driver won't fix my issues. I have to swing sooooo slow to get decent ball flight. As a result, I'm losing 10 - 20 yards from what GameGolf said I was averaging (219). 
    • I play around 3 times a week and usually score in the 78-83 range with a few outliers, both better and worse. In the last two weeks or so, I have seen the worst round in probably 5 years or more, a really unusual 111 (was 102 ESC'd) and it was the only score above 98 this year out of 100 rounds or so. After a redeeming 79, I shot another score in the 90s, at 95 (92 ESC'd). Both of the stinkers had some horrendous fairway woods, some even leading to penalty strokes (hit of the very end of the toe, dead right), with both the 5 wood and the 3 wood. I spent some time on the range trying to work this out, putting the ball on a peg at first, and lowering it progressively until the ball sits on the ground. While I am able to hit somewhat decently from a tee somewhat raised (but not quite as nicely as I was able to before this ongoing episode), I am totally unable to hit the ball sitting on the ground. Nearly every shot is topped and some are nearly whiffed! The 5 wood is/was one of my favorite clubs... I went out and played another round where the short game saved me with an 81, but once again mishit severely most of my fairway woods shots. For some reason, one was ok with the 5 wood. I am leaving the 3 wood in the bag until this is sorted out, but confidence has really taken a toll... I went online and looked for "topped fairway wood" and found several things to be mindful of. Perhaps I am swaying a bit on the takeaway and not getting back to the ball or hanging back. Perhaps the ball position is too far forward or the strike too level or too steep? I am not feeling like I am doing anything different from before, when I had no problem with that shot. So what gives? All in my head? Thanks for your insight.
