I have used a Mizuno 8803 for decades...bought it new from the now gone Walker Keller golf shop in West LA...I love it but it looks like a branding iron...I have a Wynn Super grip on it...

Here it is

Ha, I use an old offset Bullseye putter with a 2 inch dowel extension in the grip. Got it on ebay for $10 bucks and it was all tarnished and beat to hell. Whomever had this thing had anger management issues, I mean, it was dented and gouged all over. So I took it into my metals lab, buffed the head out to a high luster and milled a new face on the contact side. I probably took a 32th of an inch off to remove a deep dent right where the ball strikes. I keep trying other putters but I just putt lights out with this thing. 

Maybe I'll post a pic when I get a chance.

I have one the original "Rail Gun" putters, from back when the guy was making them in his garage. It looks pretty weird, and is a conversation piece when I use it in public. Now some company is making them, and did away with all the rough edges. 

One reason it's not my gamer is because I got tired of showing folks the paper work showing it was compliant. I actually putt quite well with it. 

I also have an "Enterprise" putter. It looks like the Star Ship Enterprise. Another conversation piece. 

I also have a couple of diy putters that when sighted would make a train take a dirt road. One actually putts pretty well for me.

Isn't it obvious? It's the DH ranch! The thing looks like a metal cdetector to me. I'm using an old Pal Joey blade style. It's ugly as hell, but it works!

Post a pic of the Rail Gun

Wish I could post a picture. I am on my phone and don't know how, or can't. You can Google it, and a bunch of pictures will come up.

    • No idea. Guess we have to wait and see. It's probably my favorite comic of all time. Haven't read it in a while, though, probably going to do it again now with the show running. Every time I re-read it I catch something I missed the last time. There were subtle details and clues explaining the setting. I didn't catch everything and some stuff I felt might have been shown for a reason (like the picture in the chief's closet as he was getting into his uniform) I didn't understand the significance of. Honestly the only thing I didn't like was that weird comic book block lettering Oklahoma! quote they used as a transition in the opening scene. The network kind of ruined that show by making it run longer than the showrunners intended, didn't they? My memory on it is a little hazy, but I remember that being a factor, and I believe they were writing the show as they went along that made it the convoluted mess it ended up being. My guess is that it's a byproduct of the event created by Ozymandias. Maybe they'll explain it more during the season. He's a British actor known for being the voice of Scar in The Lion King (1994)  I've been trying to avoid reading spoilers about the show, but my best guess is he is playing Adrian Veidt (Ozymandias). There was a newspaper headline in one of the scenes that said "Veidt Confirmed Dead" or something to that effect, so I have no idea how it all goes together. Seems to me like he's the same character. He didn't get caught. The US won the Vietnam War in the Watchmen world and it won Nixon a lot of popularity. He was still president during the events of the comic in 1985. That's Dr. Manhattan. He's a central character in the Watchmen. Not sure what his role will be in the series, if any. That explains a lot.
    • Buckeye... will you be there to explain to my head pro why there's a chalkline on his practice putting green?  😊
    • I'd be curious to know what the performance enhancing benefits of marijuana are. I am absolutely stupid, anxious, and 100% athletically uncoordinated under the influence of marijuana, so I can't imagine playing golf in this state. Of course, this varies from person to person. Aside from coffee, I don't enjoy the effect of any mind altering substance, so I rarely partake. However I don't have anything against those who choose to use legally or illegally, and at my home course I see plenty of people puffing on joints, taking whiskey shots, and then some. I also don't have any confidence in the anti-doping agencies to regulate use of PED in any sports, but I believe professional athletes are responsible for understanding the rules of their organization and adhering to them, even if the rules are dumb.
    • "Did you not read post #2?" apparently not all of it...
    • I queued these up to watch later on the big tv, thanks! I love Lost, have watched it many times as well as The Leftovers, so this show is a must watch for me.
