Hey Everybody! I am excited to have been selected to test out the Golf Pride Tour SENSR 140cc putter grip!
I have been playing golf four about the last 25 years. I started as a child with my dad taking me out to the course with him. It didn't take long for me to fall in love with the game. I grew up riding my bike the 6 miles to the course with my clubs on my back every day. I was fortunate enough to be selected to be on my high school golf team, and had a blast doing that for a few years! I have had struggles with my game for as long as I can remember. I have been able to work out a lot of the kinks over the years, but easily still the worst part of my game has been putting.
I am currently about a 8 handicap, thanks in large part to my distance. Over the last few years I have worked hard on being more consistent with my driver because I did have that distance at my disposal when I did hit it straight. I went from about 40% FIR to over 80% this last year. That has led to a higher GIR%, and I normally 2 putt to finish out. My struggle is those putts outside of about 8-10 feet. The long putts shows my lag game at very hit or miss. I switched this last year to a mallet putter when I bought the Nike Method Drone 2.0. That started me on improving my putts, and I have the high hopes that this new putter grip will help even more!
Currently in my bag:
Geek No Brainer 6* X-Stiff
5 & 7 wood Ping G2 Regular
4-AW Nike SQ Machspeed irons
Tommy Armour Evo sand and lob wedges
Nike Method Drone 2.0 Putter
These clubs have come to me in different and interesting ways. I was fitted for this driver at a local golf shop because of my swing speed and launch angle. It has been a blast to play with, but I am getting older and the swing speed is slowing down, so it may be time for a replacement here soon! My woods were hand me downs from my dad that I have had for about the last 10 years. I hit them great so I haven't felt the need to change! My irons were a graduation gift to myself, and I got them mostly on price because they were a year old model, but I have loved them from day one. The wedges I caught on sale at sports authority, but I am looking to upgrade those! Putter was mostly on price, but it had great reviews, and felt great to me!
Golf is one of the few things that I can't get enough of. It leads to a fair number of arguments with my wife when I just want to be golfing all the time!! Golf is a great game, however, and I plan to be playing for the rest of my life!!
