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 enjoy posting these and going back through the thread and reading my old thoughts on my round. Also happy I was able to play today even though the temperature was around 42 degrees. The theme of my round was greens. More specifically missed greens. Front wasn’t awful. Hit 5 greens. Hit a SW to tap in range at 9 for a birdie and played the front at +3. I did miss at the 3rd with a gap wedge. Missed at 6 with a 9 iron. Back 9 was a mess. I hit one green. My really bad misses were at 10 with a gap wedge, 12 with a U wedge, 14 and 16 both with SW in hand and to compete the side I dunked a 9 iron in the drink at 18. All I had to do was par the 18th to stay under 80. And I made double for 81. Actually drove the ball well. Funny I shot 2 under a few weeks ago while hitting 3 fairways all day. Today I hit 7 fairways and couldn’t break 80. Hope this isn’t my last round for the year. Like to end on a better day.
    • I had a couple of rounds with one 6. Generally a three-putt by on par 5...even my best round was even par (everything was “on” that day), I had one birdie, one bogey on a par 5, with 16 pars the No-Sixes round is my white whale
    • How close have you gotten? A six on the 18th hole or something?
    • Three years now and still haven’t gotten it yet. One day....
    • Bradley Hughes was just on Swing Expedition, and he used the Down Under Board on the show. I don't entirely agree with the way he says to use it, particularly the trail foot. It doesn't do what he said it did in the golf swing, but "feel" ain't real.
