straightening a putter shaft, Odyssey two ball

3 posts in this topic

I picked up an older Odyssey two ball white hot putter and got over to a local course's practice green today at lunch, and something was off on it.  I got to looking at it closer and noticed that the grip was not aligned with the head, and also the shaft was bent between the head bend and the grip.  So I bent the shaft across my knee enough to more or less get it looking fairly straight for the section that I believe is supposed to be straight. Then when I got back to work I left the putter laying on the dash of my car with the windows up, then went out at break and managed to twist the grip more or less to proper alignment with the putter face.  In any case I believe it is now a lot better that it was.

Does anyone know if the mid section of the shaft is supposed to be straight on this putter?

Does it make sense to look into getting a replacement shaft and new grip? I'm thinking it might make more sense to just use it as is for now and see how I like it. Just looking for some opinions.

Once I figured out it was bent and the grip mis-aligned I started to do better with it by compensating for the wackiness.

Worst case is I just go back to the Taylormade TC.1 or dredge up an older Bullseye from the basement to use.

Prior to bending the shaft over my knee the end of the grip was probably an inch or more to the right in the pic with the putter head sitting flat on the ground.

Looks OK to me. Fine in fact. You did a good job bending it.

I think these putters have a double bend in the gooseneck section. Obviously, the long part of the shaft is straight.

You're looking at the ball anyway, so once you get over the psychological concerns you'll forget about it :-)

    • A figment of Bill Kristol's imagination.
    • LOL, I had to read it a bunch of times too.  Still not 100% but ... I think the confusion was brought in by their effort to minimize the severity of the "issue."  They could have just said "an issue that could prevent headphone audio controls from working," but I assume that they wanted to stress that the issue is minor and they're not always not working, only temporarily.   Funny thing is once they added to the "temporarily" they could have dumped the "not" - it means basically the same thing with or without the "not."
    • Entered the last week of the regular season on Monday.  It was also Senior Night.  Typically, it is a great night for us and did end good.  However, it was a rough start.  One of my seniors was pulled over driving to our course and had 3 other players in her car.  While she was given a warning, they got to our course late and so, were rushed to get dressed and on the course.  Naturally, she was shaken up.  My #1 was again medalist but we shot the worst score we have shot on they year.  We shot a 215 and that is terrible.  We lost to both opponents we played that night and have beaten both by 20 this year.  Today was our conference tournament.  It is held at a very tough course for girls, has a lot of sand and water and trees.  My #4 who is really my #3 but I defer to an older girl at #3 could not play since she was rushed to the emergency room.  She is very sick.  Anyway, my #1 shot a 77 on a windy cold day and was Medalist.  She out shot the next competitor by 11 strokes.  Her round was one of the most amazing rounds I've seen.  Our conference is very competitive in girl's golf and yet, the #1s from all the other teams could not keep up with her.  My #2 was also All Conference.  From there, we were terrible but in line with the other girls.  Still, when you are missing the young lady that has been averaging 94 per 18 holes, you are not going to win.  We didn't.  Regional Tournament next.  It is on our home course BUT we never get to play those holes.  We have 27 Holes and so, never are allowed on the first 18 due to league play.  I am hoping we get to play those holes now in practice since league is over.  Finally, Senior Night is a celebration of our Seniors.  The other girls bought them some very nice gifts.  It was also my birthday.  They got me an extremely nice Triad Golf Jacket.  I needed it today since we were in the mid 60s with a very hard wind.  I am so blessed to get to be their coach. 
    • Wow! Hillary only got 2% on my quiz.  I knew I didnt like her, but I didnt think it was that bad.
    • I tried to find the debate, but all I could find on was some new reality show called "The Biggest Liar", where two people went after each other as hard as they could for 90 minutes.  When it was over, there was no clear winner, and the only loser was the American people.   I took the quiz, I side with Evan McMullin...........who the hell is Evan McMullin?????
