  1. LIKE NEW Ping Milled PLD Anser putter up for sale. I bought it new, in the wrappers from another member and have only rolled it on my Birdie Ball mat. Ordered a Custom PLD putter is the reason for selling. The spots on it is from the camera and dust. No scratches, dents or dings. SOLD 3* Loft 70* Lie 350g weight 35 1/2” length Milled Face PLD Headcover Ping Graphite Shaft Pingman Blackout pp58 midsize grip ……THIS PUTTER IS NEW, OTHER THAN BEING PREVIOUSLY OWNED…..
  2. I have a visit next week with a cardiovascular doctor for a little a plumbing work. It was suggested that I start using a hat for some coverage of my ears and neck, anything other than a baseball type hat. At least during the summer months. Soooooo……..ordered today.
  3. Can’t really answer your question but I do play the 330 RX and love it. It’s been my replacement for the original TreoSoft, which I still have three or four dozen stashed. I’m in the <105 swing speed and at some point I’ll have to switch to the new RX but really wouldn’t expect a substantial performance difference, especially if they have dropped the compression a bit. I suggest buying a sleeve and giving them a try.
  4. Do you only walk? Do you not drive. No car, truck, moped or motorized transportation? How do you get to your home course? Even a three wheeled bicycle would give you the option to carry clubs. http://golfbikebag.com/the-golfbikebag/ https://theseniorsworld.com/three-wheel-bikes-for-seniors/
  5. A “new” to me Ping G410 Plus 10.5* with Tensei CK Orange 70 S shaft. Hit the snot out of it, most of the time.
  6. I’m 68 and put it out about 220/235 pretty consistently. That’s the lie distance when I go to hit it again. Couldn’t tell you carry and roll out as I can’t see that far anymore.
  7. Want to try a really nice ball,,,,cheap? Saintnine U-pro. Try ‘em, you’ll like ‘em. https://www.rockbottomgolf.com/balls/new-golf-balls/saintnine-u-pro-golf-balls/?sku=15ST9UPRO111111111YLW112&msclkid=1574f48af4c214e891ac978c264471d3
  8. Until recently I never knew putter “fitting” was even a thing. I’ve always had a decent stroke and a pretty good putter. I used an Odyssey TriHot #3 for over the last 10 years, coming from a “30-40” year old Ping Anser, and did quite well. I discovered the whole “fitting “ thing and thought it legitimate after some research, and thought why not since it’s the most used club in the bag. Recently I was fitted by a Ping fitter and was put into a near identical putter I had used for years! The difference is a stronger loft and neck shape for more toe hang. Same head weight, lie, grip and length. I guess I was just fortunate to “fit” myself with the Odyssey years ago. Or was I now fitted to the stroke I have grooved over my golfing life, having putted with very similar putters from the start? Either way it confirmed I was on the right track. A fitting is a good way to be positive you have the right tool for the job. You may be using the right tool, just needing a few tweaks. But buying a new custom fitted putter is fun
  9. Found a box of these at Wally World for $16.00 a dozen and putting them into play next week. https://saintnineamerica.com/ Usually play BS RX330 or Pro V1’s but actually looking for something with a bit less spin. My trajectory with a long iron the ball stops within a couple feet and wedges drop dead or back up. I want something with less spin that has some run out for my chips and pitches, so trying a new (to me) two piece ball. I guess it’s all about your swing and the type of spin (or lack thereof) you put on the ball. My regular playing partner gets a lot of roll out no matter what club he uses, even his 64* wedge will roll out 6-8 feet. And he calls that his dead stop flop shot!

    I’m sorry it was a typo! I meant to say, “for a Ping milled face you’ll have to go to the PLD line of putters.”

    Yea, 8n Ping you’ll have go go for the PLD to get face milling. I had a Huntington Beach 11 Soft and just sold it. It’s a pretty light head for a mallet which led to a very kind of dead feel. Not bad “dead” but not a lot of feedback. It can be a lot of trial and error Pricey but nice https://www.golfdiscount.com/ping-pld-anser-stealth-putter?hand=15127&length=15682&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&adlclid=106801a4951c155caf2363508bbf4ee7&msclkid=106801a4951c155caf2363508bbf4ee7&utm_campaign=[ADL] [PLA] [Shopping] - Smart&utm_term=4580496734565187&utm_content=Ad group %231

    I will say one thing about the Sigma 2 putter face. I don’t like it at all! I have a Sigma 2 Arna, bought new and played once. I just couldn’t get consistent contact with the face and it felt very rubbery with terrible distance control. The Tyne is designed for pretty much your stroke so it should work fairly well for you. Maybe that is “what’s off” with you. Try a smooth, non milled or lightly milled face and see if the feel returns.

    No problem. I too am a “feel” putter and if it doesn’t feel right or look right then it’ll never work. Knowing your stroke pattern; Straight Back/Straight thru, slight Arch or Strong Arch is the first foundation you need to find. After knowing this picking a putter shortens the list to something that looks good and feels good.
  15. 1 - Just off the green, lots of green to work with, fairway lie ChipR 2 - Just off the green, shortsided, fairway lie ChipR 3 - Just off the green, lots of green to work with, rough ChipR 4- Just off the green, shortsided, rough ChipR 5 - Short bunker shot, lots of green 56 6 - Short bunker shot, shortsided 56 7 - Long bunker shot, lots of green 56 8 - Long bunker shot, shortsided 56 9 - 15 yards short of the green, average pin accessibility, fairway ChipR 10 - 15 yards short of the green, average pin accessibility, rough ChipR 11 - short of a raised green, rough 56
  16. Yeah it is more like a Winn grip material but I typically will change grips out at least every other season. I’m more focused on hand fit than material. Although I really dislike slick, rubber grips.
  17. “….The only thing you can do about negative thoughts is replace them with positive thoughts….” ^This statement holds the secrets. Approach a putt with positivity and try to make every one as a lag is like finishing second. Not bad but not the goal. Putting is twenty percent skill and 100% mental
  18. I just received a new Garsen grip and LOVE IT! It has three near flat sides and a round bottom at 11 1/2 inches with a great texture. It’s basically has a round midsize profile in a non tapered dimensions, and weighs absolutely nothing. Priced near the SuperStroke grips but with a much better feel. Garsen Ulitmate Grip

    Well Christof you’ve packed a lot in your post. Take it from someone who has went down the “try another one” road and get a fitting. It will be the best money spent instead of just buying different putters. When you learn your stroke tendencies, correct shaft length, loft, lie and proper grip size selecting the right putter becomes much easier as it narrows down the field tremendously. I feel pretty confident the putters you are using are for at least two, possibly three different stroke types causing you more confusion. A fitting can be as simple as visiting a local pro at the golf course , an online virtual fitting or a scheduled in depth personal fitting by a club fitter. Investigate a fitting and save yourself time and money while gaining confidence and building a better stroke.
  20. Last week the new Ping ChipR and this week a new Ping PLD Custom Anser 4J putter. Now I just have to wait for it to be made and delivered.
  21. Great stuff! I have always putted with an open stance, forward foot and hips facing the hole which seems to give me the best view of the hole. I just went through the Ping Virtual Fitting and the fitter said I have an old style “pop” stroke, slow tempo backswing/quicker forward stroke with more of a forward push with my trail hand. I always called it my Mr. Nicklaus method, without the crouch. The last couple of rounds I got out my old Odyssey Tri-Hot #3 with a round grip on it and have done very well. Yeah, maybe like 4 three putts in 36 holes but have had several one putts to make up for it. Overall pretty happy with the comfortable stroke, grip and stance. The round grip just seems to remove the tension and affords a natural alignment , grip and stroke.
  22. It has arrived, My ChipR arrived today and right to the practice green. Let me say I rarely putt from off the green, typically a 6 iron from the fringe then 8 and 7, distances depending. I neverI felt this club was mandatory but just wanted a more consistent “go to” club for chipping, eliminating indecisiveness between club selection. First impression, the head is heavy but didn’t produce the roll out I assumed for the head weight. I usually put a good amount of spin on short shots and the ChipR will spin accordingly to strike. Got the Alta CB shaft at +1” with +1/32 grip and it aligns just as my putter does with a nice quality feel and look. Probably will put on a CP2 Midsize grip as with my other clubs just for feel consistency. Could only spend 20 minutes chipping and it will take some practice to get the stroke grooved for desired speed. The club is “aim-and-shoot” accurate! On 45ish foot chips I came up short but within the 3/5 foot range, once again speed/spin control. Longer chips were typically short but fear of “going way long” was the issue. Shorter 12/18 foot chips were pick-ups, just inches from the hole. Didn’t chip one in but did have a few edge burners. For me that’s turning a maybe par into a “pick it up, nice par”. It is awesome from heavy, buried crabgrass lie’s and pops the ball right out just the same as from a smooth froghair lie without extra effort. Once I figure out what the loft will give me it’ll become a proficient, consistent and confident addition. Bottom line, it’s a keeper until it proves not to be! Should probably spend a bit more practice time with it but it’s In the bag for tomorrow’s round! Success under fire.
