Scotty Cameron GoLo Putter

5 posts in this topic

Played in an invite this weekend and the club had the Scotty Cameron GoLo in the proshop for $299.  I had tried that putter several times and liked it.  I was playing a Taylormade Ghost belly putter (which I still like).  So on the Vegas hole I bet $100 two days in a row that I would hit the green figuring I could not lose.  Hit one of two so I got the putter for $200.

For those of you that have not run across it the Vegas hole bet is, bet an amount of money (in this case the max was $300), hit the green and you double your money in pro shop credit.  Miss the green and you get your money in pro shop credit.  Hard to go wrong if you are going to buy something anyway.

A good sign was that Sunday on the first putt on the course with the new putter I hit a 15 footer for a Birdie, can't be a bad sign.

Cool!  Never heard of that before.  How about some photos of the new putter and maybe a review?

I am not ready for a full review yet.  I do putt on an arc, this club feels very natural with that motion.  I have been on a SAM putt lab and my motion is arc back and straight through.

I had gotten away from using AIMpoint in the beginning of the season and recently got back into it.  The tournament was at an Arthur Hills designed course.  The greens were awesome, very difficult, optically confusing, looks like it breaks left but actually breaks right in some cases.  Aimpoint was the way to go on a course like that.  The last day they ran the greens up to 12 with tough pin placements.  My game in general was not on so I had some tough putts, I had no three putts which I considered good considering some of the lags I had.  That was with the belly putter, I am commenting more on Aimpoint really since I played with the Belly putter.  I liked it, they double cut and rolled them twice so they were running very pure.

I needed to get away from the Belly putter and this seemed like a good opportunity.  I was going to get fit for an Edel but there is no one I know well enough locally to go for a fitting.  Might still do the Edel some day.

How far away was the green?  I would imagine it couldn't be to close.

I think the pin was 167.  The greens were very firm and fast, 12 on the stimp .  I estimated it with Aimpoint.  Balls were not sticking for sure.

    • The course with my absolute favorite greens is Eaton Country Club which, despite the name, is far cheaper golf than most courses. A membership is something around $100 a month with no initiation fee or food requirement if I remember correctly. Play golf once a week and you're paying only $25 a round with cart for 18 holes, which is a far better deal than any other course in the area (the 9 hole course I work at is the cheapest in my city at $25 for 9 holes with cart). The greens at this course stimp between 11 and 12 on a daily basis and are the smoothest that I've ever set foot on. Their maintenance crew is fantastic about fixing every little imperfection in the greens. They go over them with a fine-toothed comb every evening to fix anything on the green.  I know there must be some kind of limit to how much play a green like this could sustain, but the course has looked this way every time I've played it (including weekends, weekdays, and such). It's not an enormously busy golf course though, and I don't think it would work on the courses that regularly see 200 or more golfers. I would be willing to bet good money though that, given equal traffic, good maintenance will definitely produce a much higher quality putting surface. The course I used to work for had two people assigned to fix ball marks on the course once a week, both of which had issues with their backs that made bending over for any extended period of time uncomfortable. The greens at that course clearly showed it, with unfixed or only partially fixed ball marks marring every putting surface. The course I currently work at has a maintenance crew that fixes marks whenever they're out to water as well as marshalls that are assigned a couple of holes to maintain during their shifts and I notice that the greens here have many fewer ball marks across the greens. The maintenance crew is also diligent when it comes to regularly verticutting, needle-tining, etc. all of the greens to ensure that they're in top shape. They water the greens up to four times a day depending on the weather conditions as compared to the old course only watering in the evenings and sometimes mornings to save money. As a result the greens at my current course are much more lush and smooth than those at the course I used to work and play at, and I know the difference is the care and attention to the maintenance of the greens (they have similar player traffic).
    • To clarify, I have a push cart. I don't have an umbrella, yet. That probably would have done loads of good keeping the sun from beating down on me. I've got one picked out, but just haven't pulled the trigger yet.  Shooting an 86 was a "decent" to "good" round for me. I felt like I played well. My ball striking was above average today. I had 7 GIR and 7 nGIR. I had 37 putts today, which was my score killer. Oddly enough, most of my 3 putts were on my GIRs! I say this because in the super heat I would think that ball striking would be the first to go, but it didn't for me. Putting was mainly because I'm still working on breaking old habits I had with my old putter and moving to my new putter. Lines were always spot on but I would go back to "popping" the ball like I did with my old putter and would lose it way past the hole.  Definitely need to pick up that umbrella. I imagine that would help a ton. I'm 28 years old and in pretty darn good health/shape and I would have probably died had I actually carried my bag today... lol. Even my lighter "carry" bag.
    • For irons, last year at a Titleist fitting they said I should get the AP1's with the XP 90 gram shaft with a +1/2.  This year I did another free open fitting and they said they wouldn't need to adjust the shaft but I don't remember what shaft they recommended.  Just got fit for a driver last Thursday but i don't think that helps. Scheduled a fitting for Saturday afternoon but who knows if the clubs will still be available then. 
    • I would say nicer golf courses tend to have better greens because of the money it takes to maintain them.  I would say that greens that can routinely hold up to being cut short probably have a healthier denser grass with stronger root systems that allow it to resist damage from pitch marks. I've played on course in Dayton where a pitch mark will just tear up the green versus another course where it just leaves a slight indentation. 
    • Give that man an icy cold beer, stat! I'm relatively young, and I'd take the cart for the breeze between shots and holes as well as the portable shade. What's the point in suffering unless you are practicing for competition in similar conditions? For anyone, I think the physical metabolic toll of moving all that water through to stay cool would tend to lower scores. But you do get longer drives than typical playing conditions, and you may feel extra limber. Older folks face potential heat stroke risk, because they aren't as efficient with heat regulation as a healthy adult. If you are healthy and that's your only day free to play, why not.
