Need Putter Advice

Thanks in advance for any advice.   I started playing again after a long layoff (had twins) and my old clubs seem to be ok for now until my swing improves enough to warrant investing in anything new.  Problem is my old Ping Anser is just not cutting it.  I don't have any feel for it and it does not seem weighted very well.  I am on a huge budget (the twins) and want to find something that I can use for the season (I would rather spend on playing than equipment).   Does anyone have any advice for finding a used putter (preferable a mallet) that won't break the budget?   I assume for all the reading I should be looking at Globalgolf, 3 ball and maybe play it again.  Thanks and love the forums here.

I might suggest you look for a used Odessey Two Ball putter. I used one for a short while in a pinch, and found to be a decent tool for putting. 

On the other hand, you might be better off just giving that Ping Anser putter more time in your hands. After a long layoff, you might have re-learn it's uniqueness. 

I always wanted to try the Anser putter, after seeing alot folks enjoying success with one. Just never got around to it. 

Btw, congrats on the twin. I have twin grandkids myself. A boy, and a girl. They are something.

You could also spend five bucks on a roll of lead tape and play around with the weighting. You might wind up with your ideal putter (slathered with lead tape but handsome is as handsome does), or you might figure out what you really want in your next putter.

I have twin girls, what a blessing!

ebay is another good resource and there are tons of good putters there.   For years I used a $10 Nicklaus blade putter from 1967.  Lasted a long time and great putter.

I have one and like it.   I'm sure there are some on Ebay.

No way I could buy a putter online without trying it out first. 

Maybe go to a local golf shop and try out some putters to find one you like. They might have used ones 

at  the shop you might like. If you find one you like then you can look for used or a good deal online.

Is your current putter face balanced or toe hang? It may be the opposite of what you need therefore it doesnt feel right to you.

    • I’ll go on the range and try that! Thanks for the feedback, I’ll post one more video when I do and see if anything improved
    • This is interesting. I don't have an LM of any sort, but is this open source for LM to sim? The website is incredibly vague, and though I use Discord quite often, I don't join random servers. On your clickthrough it mentions multiple LMs, but I don't see any kind of list on their site. Would this work with a Mevo? Would it work with a swing caddie? How many courses are there? More importantly, it sounds like you are already using it. How do you like it? *Edit Joined the Disc, and didn't find any more information on what LMs are supported. Looks like someone is making some decent side gig money on it, but I'm not really sure what the draw is. I thought this was going to be a SIM for LMs, but it looks like a league for people that already have LMs/SIMs. Maybe you can elaborate on the draw?
    • Hello everyone I used to be active here until my place was burglarized in Dallas TX and my entire golf gear, among other things, was stolen. Following the burglary and the pandemic I lost my motivation to play golf. Last week I moved to Vegas, and today my wonderful wife ordered a new set for my upcoming birthday. It is an all Taylormade M2 set which was on discount at Dick's; my goal is to play with that product price range until I score in the 80s again. I will only buy better clubs after I consistently hit below 80, if necessary. I am now looking for good golf courses in the Summerlin area and hope to join a community where I can find likeminded folks to play with regularly. My flexible job enables me to play in the afternoons during the week and all day on weekends. Vegas has transformed a lot. The Raiders built a stadium here, residential areas have grown and lots of master planned communities were built. Nice to be back on TST, it is the best golf community on the web! Nave
    • I have just as much fun playing by the rules, as not. Hell, probably more...
    • Nice!  Olinger can get around the table!
