  1. A few years ago I decided to try graphite. I bought a set of Titleist AP 2 irons with the Kuro Kage regular flex shafts. These were a great club, and to this day I am still playing them. But I did change the shafts in them. I found that if was more difficult for me to work the ball. I have tried numerous graphite irons, and basically with the same results. My feeling was this. When I struck the ball, and was trying to turn the ball over to creat a slight draw, it seemed like the ball was allready gone off the club head. I do feel that the time that the ball remains on the face of the graphite
  2. Well, it probably will not do any better, (nor worse), than anything else I have, or use. I have many, many putters, and really do not have "just one", that stands out from the others. Sometimes I just pick one up, swing it a few times, and throw it into the bag.
  3. This is exactly what I was looking for.. Found one on Amazon. It's on its way to me. I will add it to my collection of putters...😝
  4. Years ago there was a training putter that had like a 2 inch wide blade, and was probably four inches in depth. It was also center shafted. Does anyone know who made this putter, and the name of it?? Thanks!!!
  5. I ended up purchasing a set of these irons. I think they were 250 dollars for the whole set including shafts and grips. Great looking head, and also great to hit. I have played Titleist AP-2's for probably 4 or 5 years now and they are also a great set of clubs. I just wanted to try something different. I left them an inch long just to try them with a bit more weight. They hit great and were very smooth. Really couldn't tell a difference between them and my Titleist. The blades were just a fraction longer, but they had a thinner top line and looked very good at address.
  6. I have used the same cheap rubber clamp for probably better than 20 years. Still using it and it works great.You can use just a plain utility knife, but you have to be careful not to go into the shaft. Its best to use the hooked style though, because a much less chance of scoring the shaft. I have now started to install grips using compressed air, and it works great, once you get the hang of it. I also like to try different putter grips, and by installing them with air, it's easy to remove them without destroying the grip. Anymore its easy to spend 30 dollars on a putter grip. I wa
  7. Not all ping putters carry a serial number. I do believe that you are thinking more a model number than a serial number though. Almost all of the older ping putters had a model number stamped on them. I remember my first one. My parents bought it for me for a graduation present way back in 1972. It was the most expensive putter out there and it went for a whopping 20 dollars!! It was a Ping Kushin. Ping also made a model called the Ping Cushin. It was basically the same as the Kushin but just a bit longer. Great putters back then, and still are. I still have mine and it is mint except fo
  8. I have found that most people that try to practice on the course, really are not practicing. It seems like even when trying to practice on the course, people still tend to try and shoot a score. If I am really trying to practice, I do it on the range...
  9. I myself do not use a line. I have learned also that the putterhead whether being pointed straight, left, or right of the hole does not mean that is where the ball is going to go. I pay more attention to the way my feet set up towards the line I want to hit the ball on. Once I get settled onto that line I dont waste much time hitting the putt. To me a line on the ball seems to just complicate the putt. It seems like most pros use a line, but again most of us are not pros...
  10. I try not to overthink a putt. It is hard to do and takes a lot of practice. On my longer putts, say 20 feet or so, I don't try to make it. Ipick out a line in general, take a practice stroke or two, and just try to get it around the hole close enough to insure a two putt. In doing so it seems like sometimes just trying to get it close, some of those putts fall in. I have studied putting a lot of years and have noticed if you clear your mind, and try not to think that if you make the putt that you will break 40, that you have a better chance of making it. I have also noticed that m
  11. Right now I play the Titleist AP 2's. They are a great club. When I bought them they had a Kuro Kage graphite shaft in them. After playing them one season I reshafted them with a True Temper TT Lite shaft. I left them one inch long. I have always liked the feel of a longer iron which also made a heavier swingweight. Right around a D-8. I am 66 years old and I still prefer a steel shaft over graphite. Mainly because I find it easier to work the ball. I have really no reason to change other than I just like trying different things. They are a tad longer than my AP-2s, but from the address positi
  12. I am planning on building me a set of these irons. I just got a 7 iron head in today to check it out before I purchased a whole set. Just wondering if anyone out there has used these heads and get any feedback from you golfers out there. These look very plain to me and with no-nonsence lines or gimmicks to them. To me a very attractive iron head... Any thoughts??
  13. Sir, No matter what I say you usually disagree with it. But I have not a problem with that. I know that the people that are quite good at this game, are usually very good at putting. I will not change my ways and thoughts on practicing with the flat stick. You are very argumentative, very opinionated, and I like that... I also know that you are in the Lake Chataqua golf area. I love that course. I am halfway between Erie and Pittsburgh. It would be a pleasure to play a round with someone like yourself. Maybe you could show me a thing or two...(or vice versa.LOL)😉
  14. I wish I would have the opportunity to play such courses. They would have to be a treat. The better courses around me are The Lakes at Avalon, Squaw Creek, Boulder Creek, and there is many many more...
