  1. I'm sorry I started this thread I sincerely asked an honest question. I was not playing a game or trolling. I sincerely wanted to know why my $2 putter that looks similar in style, shape and design and works great would cost $3,497 dollars less than the expensive putter which looks similiar to mine. I mean I can see if a putter with a good brand name on it might possibly cost someone $150, but $3,499? I sincerely don't get it.
  2. Do you really have to insult me for asking an honest question? I asked you in an earlier post, to point out the noticeable difference between my putter and the expensive putter and you give me insults to an honest question which I am merely trying to get an answer to. My putter may be ugly to you but it works just fine for me.
  3. If you read my posts carefully, you will not see where I said it bothers me. I honestly don't care how much cash a person is willing to shell out for a putter. The only thing I wanted people to do was to look at both putters in the OP and tell me what noticeable difference they can spot in the expensive putter vs. my cheapo putter.
  4. As I am sitting here contemplating my round of golf tomorrow I am devising a game plan which will enable me to shoot my lowest score ever. In order to do that I have to score below 86. However as for my game plan, I will play a smart round and always keep the ball on the fairway. I will not take any low percentage high risk shots. In my mind before each shot I will remind myself of the set up motions for each shot and analyze each ball lie followed by a couple of practice swings before I take my actual shot which will produce the desires results. I will make good ball contact and not hit the ball thin or fat. I will keep my right elbow tucked in close to my body on my down swing and hit the ball straight. Yep that should do it.
  5. Take any given hole you have played. The same hole you got a birdie on one day and feel you've mastered the hole, then you ended up with a double bogey on the exact same hole on another occasion. One day you're one under for the hole and on another day you're two over on the same hole for a three stoke swing on the same hole. Funny how that works isn't it.
  6. Another member of this forum (Vangator) whom I haven't see any posts from in awhile, also had a lower opinion of Pro V's But once again, the OP was about putters, not balls.
  7. The Maxi Fli out distanced the Pro V1 and had better all around feel. Matter of fact, of all the Pro V's I have ever tried I have never been satisfied. I have found that many other balls perform and feel better than Pro V's, at least for my game. My normal ball which seems to suit me best is the Top Flite Gamers which I buy on sale for $30 for 2 doz. But we're getting off track of the OP a bit now
  8. I agree with you that goods are valued at what the public is willing to pay for them. If goods are over-priced we have ourselves to blame.
  9. I found a Pro V1 and a cheaper Maxi Fli ball, and for me the cheaper Maxi Fli ball out performed the Pro V1 - that's the truth. I guess some balls are better suited for certain players as are some putters.
  10. There might be other styles of Scotty putters selling for less than the 009 model, but I looked and couldn't find a Scotty Cameron 009 putter that wasn't priced in the thousands of dollars. Absolutely agree, yet the most I would ever pay for any putter would be $10, but that's just the way I am, and currently my putting game is clicking and therefore I have no need to think about some other putter, especially one of those gimmicky, gawdy ones with those long prongs sticking out the back of it.
  11. The $3500 wasn't for Speith's putter, it was for one like the one he uses All of the Scotty Cameron putters are being listed up in the thousands of dollar's not just that one. You can check it out for yourself
  12. Look at both putters. Now other than price, tell me what noticeable differences do you see
  13. Honestly, I don't see any difference. If you do would you point the difference out. Both putters look alike in style, shape and design to me.
  14. Since Jordan Speith's putting was instrumental in his win yesterday I'm posting a pic of my $2 garage sale cheapo Knight putter which looks much in shape and design like Speith's expensive Scotty Cameron 009 putter. I saw a putter like Speith's on ebay with an opening bid of $3,499.00.. The only noticeable difference as far as I can see is the price. While Jordan made some great putts yesterday with his putter, likewise I made some of the same sort of putts during my last round from about the same distances or longer as Jordan did with my cheapo putter. I just don't get what the big hoopla is over expensive putters.
  15. Last year I was shooting 86-95, this year so far I have been keeping it under 90. Last year I couldn't reach the majority of par 4's in two or the par 5's in three, this year I have been able to reach more par 4's in two and most par 5's in three. I have even came very close to reaching a few par 5's on two on several occasions. So yes, I have improved since last year thanks to better clubs and better swing and aim.
  16. True. However, on super slow days when hardly anyone is at the course you have occasion to take more time.
  17. After you give it a trial run at a driving range you will then know whether you got a good deal or whether it's junk. These days, there's not much that I care for that doesn't have the new technology built into it.
  18. Sure, but I was replying to someone who wasn't happy with the price he paid out for his fitting I have at times jumped a couple of holes ahead of slow pokes and then came back and played the other remaining holes
  19. I think a person should play whatever tees he/she wants as long as he/she isn't holding up the golfers behind him/her.
  20. They are German made balls and from what I see have received some favorable reviews
  21. Yes feet, thank you for correcting that oversight or typo on my part.
  22. That's the problem with getting clubs fitted. The amount you shell out to get fitted clubs leaves you with little or no money for other things. That's why I shop ebay and avoid the high overhead which the major sporting good stores and pro shops charge you.
  23. It's a world of difference between a 105 degree day and no humidity day and a 90 degree day with 85% humidity. The former is bearable, but the latter is unbearable.
