Is bending a putter shaft a simple task?

6 posts in this topic

I've verified the lie on my Scotty Cameron Catalina is 71 degrees as is the spec. But to get the sole to lie flat, I have to choke down more than I'd like. My Never Compromise has always laid much flatter and I measured it's lie to about 68 degrees.

So if I take the Scotty to my pro shop and have them bend the goose neck shaft 3 degrees flatter, do they have to pull the grip and fill the shaft with sand or is 3 degrees a minimal where it's already bent? Thanks.

Might be better to ask the person who you're asking to do it. I'd have a go at doing it myself.

Well duh - I called the pro shop and talked with the guy that bends lies and lofts and he said he could do it. I was there in 20 minutes, bought another wedge at their "garage sale" while I was waiting, guy did an excellent job. The sole lies flat as a pancake at address now - I'm feeling it!

Scotty Heads and putter shafts in general are easy to bend. Just take it along to a pro with a putter loft and lie machine. Take 2 minutes and you can go up to about 5 degrees either way. The shaft is heated and bent in most cases for goose neck. Should only cost $3 or $4

It's not hard to do, as long as you have the right tools and a little training.

    • Video tape yourself making a slow backswing  to the length you want and hold the position. Make a mental note of what it feels like. Then try to make a swing and make a mental note of what the swing felt like, how much turn, how much did the arms move. Then check the video. See if you hit your the swing length you want. If not then do the slow swings again, hold the position you want. Then make another swing but this time try to shorten it up. If need to, swing like 50% backswing turn rates. Check the video, how closer were you? Keep doing it till you get the swing where you want it.  This is what I do to try to teach myself to swing shorter. It will take some time, but it gets easier over time. For me, my driver is a between A2-A3 swing length feel that gets me A4. 
    • I nit pick a lot.  I'm smarter than the average voter. I actually read the voter pamphlet. I study the issues in the campaign and research the candidates. There's a lot of propaganda out there. For Trump, where's the beef? Trump steaks? I don't see any beef. I just see a lot of hot air.  I'd still like to know how he's going to kick 11 million people out of the country without having a secret police force. It'll involve racial profiling and people will have to make sure they have their papers in order. They may even be citizens but still get caught up in the sweep because they don't have their papers in order. Does everyone have their papers in order? Plus who is going to pick next season's crops? I know that's stereotyping but still.  His statement on immigration... all countries have shown themselves to be vulnerable. So... no more immigration? We're a nation of immigrants. Tariffs worked really well for Herbert Hoover.  Hillary is no saint. That's a given. But damn.  
    • Steve Stricker is grouped with David Toms and Rich Beem. How many fans can correctly identify who isn't the past champion in that threesome?
    • Since it's law in Virginia that a Governor can only serve on term in office at a time it makes it difficult to gauge their time there. During his time as Governor the state of Virginia was one of three states to earn the highest grade in terms of management in a report by the non-partisan Pew Center on the States. Also, Virginia took first place each year from 2006 to 2009 in the "Best States For Business" rankings published by Forbes magazine. I think he's a good pick as VP. Virginia has gone Democrat the last two elections.  For his term in the Senate he's got a very good relationship in working with both Democrats and Republicans.   
    • Don't you think deporting 11 million (or whatever the figure is) undocumented/illegal immigrants will take a pretty big government? How about building a giant border wall? Or the 35% tariff he would impose? Oh, and don't forget he promised not to touch entitlements.
