I have used mallet putters for basically my whole life with brief stints with blades mixed in. Over the course of the past couple years I realized that I almost exclusively hit putts too firm, especially short puts under 5 or 6 feet. Do you think a lighter blade would help me get some more feel with those putts.
P.S I also have a superstroke 3.0 on my mallet, im not sure if that increased grip size negatively affects feel or not.
I have all kinds of reminders going through my head as I set up over the ball, trying to be sure I'm ready and comfortable. However, during the swing it's probably two. One for the backswing and one for the downswing.
I hit some pretty good shots this week, but I strung a few together on the par 5 5th. Hit a great 3/4 driver that landed down the back of the hill off the tee and ran down to a perfect spot in the fairway that's flat and short of trouble. Then I piped a 3W right down the center of the fairway to about 15 yards off the front edge of the green. Almost chipped that in for eagle and ended up with a 4" tap-in birdie.
