9 posts in this topic

apart from looks which I don't mind, what do you guys think about the putter?

i am thinking of buying it used and it seems like a decent putter.

all i've read from other reviews are regarding its looks...

its the 2003 model- any thoughts?

It's okay. Feels like crap, but the look isn't that terrible.

Why?

Do you need that help?

One of the first big MOI putters. Better Tech and Refinements have emerged since 2003 that you can purchase as used. Unless you want some thing that says "Scotty" on it.

I wasn't a big fan. Couldn't seem to get the ball to roll straight off the face.

If you're looking for a high MOI putter, TM Daddy Long Legs, Ping Nome and Odyssey TANK are getting a lot of good reviews.

As someone that is still using the putter, I can say that it works for me. I have the mid version and it provides a great roll. I had to get past the sound which is a little "ting", but the sound of the ball rattling in the cup more than makes up for it.

I retired it last year... It was a good putter when I used it regularly on fast greens, but on slow greens it just doesn't explode off the face enough. I found that I changed my stroke to compensate... moved on the the odyssey 2ball, much heavier and a smoother roll on all types of greens. Good luck!

Hey everyone new to this site, but i thought i'd put in my 2 cents. I used a Futura and as great of a putter as it was like mentioned before if you play slower greens it may cause some problems if you use your normal stroke. When it was time to hang it up I looked at a few different options. I rolled a white hot two ball (not a big insert guy), itsy bitsy spyder (again insert), and a black series two ball. The black series felt great, but for the price i thought why not get another Cameron. That was until a friend showed up with one the the worst looking putters I have ever seen. He had bought an Odyssey sabertooth backstyke. At first I kinda chuckled, but then I took it for a spin. Wow I thought every putt just rolled perfect off the face to my suprise. To shorten the story I went out and bought one and haven't looked back. Even with the insert (which i had preached against for so long) it felt great. So my opinion save your self some cash and pick one up. I know they can be had for around $60-$90 new now a days.

I've been using this putter since 2003, it will need to be pried out of my cold, dead hands!  I love this thing, once you get used to it, leaving it in the garage in your golf bag will not be ok anymore.  Mine is in a nice velvet lined box, sorta coffin like, next to my bed. I buy it gifts every holiday, no kidding.  My only issue is when playing in direct sunlight this thing shines back in your face like that nice side mounted cop car light! Seriously, that's the only issue i have with this putter.  I can use it from well off the green with ease.  Putting is my favorite part of the game and i couldn't imagine using another putter. Grab an old one for cheap on ebay and try it out, give it a few rounds and you'll love it.

    • Played yesterday at SGCC. 36-40-76 -2 birdies and 2 doubles (ugh), one double was a 3-putt
    • I am going to try the TP version of my old club.  It has a 390CC head.  It was only 30 bucks so I figured it couldn't hurt to see if it helps a little on the forgiveness.  I guess the game is just passing me by...I can't see myself using those gigantic drivers.  The thing I noticed is that with the smaller head, that I am more focused on hitting the sweet spot.  With the giant club it just seems like you hit it anywhere on the face.  Am I correct in thinking that a "sweet spot" is not any larger on the bigger heads?  Is it just that on off center hits there is better chance of hitting it straight?  
    • I'll keep this on the short side because some random person's Member Swing thread isn't really the place for this kind of discussion… By most I'll clarify: the vast, vast majority. I'm not talking about 53% here. That doesn't mean you were doing it right or most efficiently. You may very well have been capable of making the change - and making it more quickly - with a ball if you'd done it differently. Sounds slow. Not for everyone, but for a good chunk of people. That's not what I advocate in the above linked post, either. Generally speaking, here's what I see: You tell people to fix the move without a golf ball. They work and work and film and record, and eventually, they've got a great practice swing. You say "great, now do that with a ball" and they almost immediately and completely revert to their old swing. Simply put, what I recommend to people is: A rehearsal swing or two. Often these too are shorter, slower, simpler swings. A shorter, slower, simpler swing focusing just on the "piece" while hitting a ball. As you become proficient, the swing gets less short, less slow, and closer to the full swing. Practice at the edge of your ability, but do it with a ball. The approach there blends no-ball practice (the first bullet) but immediately ties it to a motion you make with a golf ball. If you're shanking, topping, etc. the ball too much, you're not doing it slowly, "shortly," or simply enough.
    • Shot a 41 in my match play League.  Opponent was giving me 3 strokes.  I won the match 5 to 4. 5 pars 3 bogeys 1 double Good:  Drove 6/7 fairways and the only one that I missed was by about a foot.  Hit some very good approach shots.  I had 4 birdie putts ranging from 6-25 feet.  Alas, i made none. Bad: Other than duffing 2 shots on the first hole (an easy par 5) i played pretty solid.    
    • This entirely depends on where you play. I play courses that usually have three groups and a couple of singles out per side, and I would say no, but then I get to an urban course, like Long. Island, or South Florida, and it's anger management time.  I like to watch my friends's shots, and compliment their successes, I take a couple practice swings if I am in an uneven lie, or whatever, but I am not going to spend time searching for extra balls while walking between shots, or sit and BS at the tee before shooting. For some reason I am always ready to hit first, honors or no, and I just don't get why people take so long there. As long as I can do the things I enjoy, like watching my shots and my friends shots, and take due care taking my shots and putting, I don't feel rushed, but three hours for a foursome means you have four serious golfers. My golfing is more social so that is unlikely to happen. I play with one guy who takes pace seriously, and we do fine.  If we want to pick up the pace of a group, we play best ball. Maybe the conversations on the tee are because that's where everybody gathers together for the next hole and people like to talk. I like to play golf.
