That's a bad way of looking at that kind of thing.

You could tap in 9 times a round with any club, really. That you do it with your putter doesn't mean the putter is providing some unique value there.

Wouldn't be the 1st time my thinking was off...…….

Then why even have a "Putter".  Just use the a 4 iron...….

I think what @iacas is saying is that simply counting the number of times per round you use a certain club is not the best way to evaluate its importance.

Maybe, but, I see it that it's importance is based on it's particular function due to it's design, which means in this case, you will be using it by far, more often.  Why wouldn't someone invest more into something they would typically use the most?

I don't always see what's in front of me...…..

Just because you use it the most doesn't mean it has the biggest impact on your score.

Well, first, this:

If you give me a putter that isn't well suited to my game, I might take two more putts per round, or one, over 18 holes.

If you give me a driver that isn't well suited to my game, I might take an extra six shots over 18 holes.

Not all "strokes" are worth the same amount.

Ok, that I can understand...……. 

@klineka  Thanks...…..  you must have typed it in slow so I didn't have to read it too fast......

Or, I want the best putter so that I use it less often each round. ;-)

(Not trying to un-do the discussion about putter vs. other clubs, but this was this was the thought that came to me.)

Last Friday I was finally able to go get fit for an Edel putter. It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for the past few hears but haven’t had the time to really do it. I ended up making the drive and got fitted by @iacas and It was a fantastic experience. By far the best club fitting/buying experience I’ve had.

It was really eye opening to see how much my aim was off. For the longest time I felt that there was something off in my stroke, like I was holding off the club but never really saw tons of missed putts on that side. Sure enough, the fitting showed I was aiming my current putter like 10” or so left of the hole. After using the new fit putter I started aiming a ton better and got the ball on line a lot more. I still pushed/blocked putts but it was way more apparent and something I am going to work on.

I could not be any more excited to get my new putter. I think this is the first time I’ve been excited to practice putting, previously it’s always felt like more of a chore. Golf season could not come soon enough.

Saw this scrolling through Facebook. Does this mean they are getting rid of the classic fit line? Hopefully they aren’t.

    • Not sure. They did have a number of precautions, only half the bays were open, all the doors were propped open, said they sanitized all the balls and buckets after use, putting greens and short game area were closed, etc. 
    • I'm teaching online for the first time this quarter.  I've recorded an occasional lecture before, but this quarter (and this upcoming summer) all the classes I teach are online and not in-person (note for anyone reading this that doesn't know me:  I teach, but not golf).  When we were going over plans before the term, it got mentioned a few times that the classes feel weirder for students if we try to avoid the stumbling, the saying "uhh" and so on.   In any case, I bought the set a moment ago and downloaded the first video.  I don't know if I'll get a chance to watch before the weekend but I'm sure the videos are fantastic.  I'm very much looking forward to watching them (and catching up on the practice series).
    • Does Gov. Dewy know about this? Thought the ranges were supposed to be all shut. 
    • Found out my local driving range is still open so hit balls there today, this is by far the best I have ever hit the ball. Irons were crisp, main swing thought is keeping my elbows close together on the way back/top of the backswing. Worked on some knock down shots, have a good feeling for taking 10-15 yards off my PW,9,8 irons now. Driver was the best it's ever been, very neutral ball flight, not much curve in either direction. Main thought for driver at setup/address is make sure I stand far away from the ball, I realized today that in my last 2 rounds I was standing way too close to the ball. Main swing thought is during the backswing really load weight into my right heel, feeling like my right toes are coming off the ground slightly (they aren't really) and make sure my back/torso are leaning away from the target. Spent a bit of time working on 50-75 yard wedge shots too, I now have a swing length/feeling dialed in for 50,60, and 70 yard carries.
    • I watched the replay of the 2018 Par-3 contest earlier today.  I watched it the night it happened -- taped it, avoided spoilers, watched when I got home.  Magical then and magical now. I'm watching the '86 final round right now.  I obviously know what happened (I'm wearing a yellow polo today because I knew this was airing), but I don't think I ever watched more than a highlight reel of this before.  It's amazing.  Nicklaus is on #16 as I speak, minus however many year tape delay this is on.
