I've bought several over the years. Two have lost their heads on the course, and a couple I've given away to family.

The putter I currently use is a little higher quality than what I usually buy, and it has that awesome thick grip that I like. I hope to keep it a long time.

Edit : Well SH!t... They're on clearance for $12.. Maybe I should buy a couple more. :-)

One.  Newport 2.

In my view, its better to use one and become as comfortable with it as possible than switching back and forth.  Obviously, people will have different opinions, but that's mine.

I only have one, the one in my sig. When I'm done with a putter, it goes to a family member or a friend in need of an upgrade. Though my Crimson 660 is an older model, I take extreme care of it and the cover is on it before it's put back in the bag. It honestly has not even one scratch or nick on it and is 99/100 condition. It has been my favorite putter to date and I do not see myself changing any time soon.

I LOVED my Crimson 660.  I only switched because my best man (and golfing buddy) got me an expensive new putter as a wedding gift.  I've come to love it and I'm happy with it, but I saw no reason to switch from the Crimson.

Now my wife uses the Crimson.

I must have 20 or more between myself and my father. 5 or 6 different Camerons 9 or 10 different Ping putters including a real Scottsdale Anser. We just like putters call it an obsession. We have passed around each of them so many times I don't know which I bought and which he bought.

In spirit of some recent threads, I offer clarification: I was not implying a charitable situation. I meant purchasing.

Haha I like it!

I only have one putter right now but I think I want to try a new one out pretty soon.  We will see.

I only have one.  The one in my sig which I found on the side of the interstate when I lived in NC.  It had the head cover on it so no damage to the club and no way to find the original owner.  Have had it for probably 7 years or more now.  I tend to had down a lot of my clubs to siblings and family.  That is where all my other putters have gone.  Have only owned 3 in my lifetime though.

I've counted 5 putters currently.

Heavy Putter D1-M

Maltby Max Moment

Odyssey White Ice 2 Ball F7 (selling this one)

Killer Bee mallet (don't recall model name)

Distance Master (similar to current AS5 model)

The Heavy and Max Moment are fighting to stay in my bag.  I like the heavier weight heads (although the Heavy is the Mid Weight model) that promote a more stable stroke.  I also prefer a steel face because I have a tendency to leave putts short, so it helps when the ball bounces off the face a bit more.

I built the Killer Bee and DM putters.  I'd like the Killer Bee more, but the insert isn't ideal for me.  It might work better on really fast greens.  The DM was the first putter I built, but I prefer the larger mallets.

Wow this took a little thought and a trip down to the basement. 1. A bronze Ping from the 70's (Was my Father's before he passed) 2. Ray Cook Mallet 3. Original Scotty Cameron Coronado 4. Scotty Cameron Caliente Grande 5. Odyssey #2 White Hot 6. Odyssey Two Ball 7. Ping Redwood Ping Zing 8. Odyssey Tour Milled Black Series (w Snakeskin grip) 9. Rife Island Series Deep Blue 10. Rife Tropical Finish Barbados Belly Hmmm there may be something to my wife's accusations that I spend to much money on golf equipment.

One more point most of the putters I own have never been taken to the course to be struck in anger. They might get to practice green but usually won't make it in play. I think this may be proof I have club issues lol.

    • Day 64, July 28, 2021: Three quarter swing feels today, same stuff I’ve been working on for the last month. 
    • It's finally arrived! Will dig in, hope it helps my game as it has for so many here!
    • The sickest thing of all though, is that in your country, refusal to take  it is seen by many as a requirement to prove allegiance to a cult. Additionally, you have people, as we do here, (and everywhere else) who are just plain and simple morons I was reading a post on Reddit the other where a nurse was encouraging a patient to get vaccinated. She said she wouldn't because the vaccine is made from the foetuses of aborted babies. When told that this was not true, she replied that it was true  - she had researched it. She followed this up by putting in a complaint to the hospital about the nurse, saying that she felt that she had been "judged".
    • What do you guys think about limit hip turn on back swing for greater hip turn down swing? I believe my swing is full hip and shoulder turn on back swing but only get a little bit open hip at impact. any drill to help me achieve this and get more hip turn on down swing? the best I can do at impact.
    • Day 154.  I practiced the "snapping sticks" quarantine drill a bit more today, both with the alignment stick and my 6-iron (I seem to feel it more in my right arm than my left, although once I've gone for 30 seconds, I can start to feel it in my core).  I also hit a dozen full swing shots with my 6-iron (indoors, off a mat, etc), the usual practice routine for them, focusing on takeaway and position at the end of the backswing.
