  1. I am a bigger proponent of doing the next part. You have done your setup based on a lot of what people say is the right thing to do. When you hit the putt does it roll on your intended line? If yes, then you have the right putter for your stroke. If no, then you need to find a different putter. In my opinion, you should fit for how you see the line, when you are setup, do you see a straight line or does the line appear to go left or right of the hole. Based on that setup, find a putter that enables you to start the ball on your intended line.
  2. I still have to read the results, but the Evnroll wasn't my best putter....
  3. Not saying he didn't put well. Just saying the 57 for 57 is misleading and doesn't provide an accurate picture since only a handful were over 4 feet. 3 out of his 4 rounds he had a strokes gained in the mid 1 range. Which is great and will win quite a few tournaments . I agree strokes gained is a better measure and not just putts made. The bigger point is you have to understand the underlying data when looking at any statistic. For example let's say you have 38 putts for a round. Would you say you had a bad putting day? How about if you looked at the data. And saw you had missed 18 greens and chipped no closer than 10 feet and 2 putted from there. I'd say work on chipping instead of putting.
  4. How about misleading instead of meaningless. Poor word choice. I am not saying it wasn't good putting but the putts were more toward the 4' range and not the 7 foot range
  5. Just shows that you have to be careful when analyzing your own game and truly understand what you are looking at
  6. Anyone who watched heard how Ricky was 57 for 57 putting inside of 7 feet. Found an interesting article that breaks down the actual putts and shows how these statistics can be really meaningless. Not that it wasn't decent putting but not really as great as the announcers made it seem http://ow.ly/OZlM309qfuM
  7. Like others have said it is going to be hard to find. Most people want plumbers necks because that is what the are pros playing. I applaud you for trying to find the putter that works for you and starts the ball on your intended line. You best option is to keep searching eBay or order a custom. Some have mentioned seemore but I don't think they have a heel shafted option. Good luck in your quest to find the perfect Putter
  8. I hate the deadlines as well I had 4 players miss the cut and didn't get them swapped out by the deadline. I also left Fowler on the bench figuring he would choke. I have never been good at fantasy sports.
  9. My weekly group used to be much larger with 20+ guys showing up to play we played a $2 Nassau with $1 birdies. No presses and max out of pocket of $10. Winner paid the bar tab afterwards and if the tab was over the winnings the other team kicked in up to they $10 max. Now we are much smaller 4-8 for a variety of reasons and it is mostly for fun but we occasionally play quarter skins
  10. It is more than just picking the winner. You have to have 4 golfers that play well and you have to know when to adjust players to maximize points.
  11. Lots of people love the face. I personally thought it muted the feel too much.
  12. another solid round this week. 40/39 but finished with 3 consecutive bogeys. Hitting the ball well off the tee and also solid with the irons. Still having short game struggles...some are hit well, some are fat, and some are thin.
  13. Amazing how everyone can tell you what you are doing wrong with your swing; should have asked to see his PGA card.
  14. Places like GG would be, but I don't think they provide the best fittings. I think they lack the experience and generally just look at trackman numbers. I am of the opinion that hitting the optimal numbers doesn't mean it is the optimal fit. Because of the conditions you listed, adjustments always have to be made. Fittings are jsut as important for a high handicapper as a low handicapper.
  15. Sitting around the house watching TV and chipping golf balls to work on contact. Been hitting behind the ball too much and it has been costing me lots of stokes during my rounds. Hoping the work will pay dividends when I play tomorrow
  16. Unrelated question. Is the dedicated app better than using Tapatalk? What is the difference?
  17. I am the type of person that wants to understand details. For me a great fitting regardless of of whether it is for a specific brand or brand agnostic is that the fitter can communicate to me what he is trying to accomplish with the various changes. This is what I want and I am sure other people would hate all those details and it would be a great fitting for them. We all measure things differently so what is great for someone else might not meet my expectations.
  18. Do you plan on playing in any tournaments? If you plan on playing tournament golf the clubs probably don't conform to the rules of golf. They changed the groove rules a few years ago. How worn is the face/grooves? If you aren't going to be playing tournaments requiring you conform to the equipment rules and the grooves are in good shape then by all means continue to use them. New wedges would probably optimize spin numbers but if you are just playing for fun then the decision is yours. I would also evaluate if the fit your swing from a bounce perspective
  19. Definitely mushy. Even with high bounce wedges I can dig and go under the ball due to the wet ground. Other bad shots are when the ball is sitting on top of the dormant Bermuda; totally miss the ball on some of those and the dreaded stoping of the hands that leads to a chunk or skull across the green. I do practice. I just haven't been able to bring the necessary consistency to the course Fortunately I know this is my weak area; just need more time to practice. The nice thing is that it is possible to practice in the backyard.
  20. Thanks. It really was a good day. I only missed one fairway and that was by about 2 feet. I hit 11 greens and had 28 putts with only 11 on the front side. I did hit one OB on the front. Everything worse than par was directly the result of a bad chip/pitch shot. i need to start going to the course and work on my short game or maybe even take another lesson. I think i have tweaked with the swing so much that I am just making everything worse.
  21. I just want to say I hate my short game. Shot 35/39=74 but had a double after chunking 2 chip shots on a hole. I practice and seem to do fine on the practice greens, but when I have to execute on the course i end up with chunked shots. So frustrating!!!!!
  22. I know, looked on their site for fitters and nothing really close to me. The show the PGA Superstores in Myrtle Beach as having fitters.
  23. Yes, our miscommunication was the word aim. I think of aim as where I have setup and impact is after we have done all our crazy backswing stuff. And my questions have always been about the other variables that you are referring too. Never heard them discussed with Edel fittings; only the focus on aim. I use a dime instead of a penny at 20". Hitting a dime at 20" is keeping withing 1* of intended line which means with the correct speed and correct read I will make a 10 foot putt. Thanks for the detailed post. Answered a lot of my questions on the stroke aspect of an edel fitting. Definitely interested in doing one; just wish there was one close to me. Guess I will see if I can get one when I go to myrtle beach.
  24. Yep, it measures other things, all I was saying is that when categorizing you as a straight arc, slight arc, strong arc it uses rotation not path.
