  1. Club Champion and Cool Clubs are both fine options. If you’re not opposed to a road trip, you won’t find better than Chip Usher in Savannah. He’s one of the top fitters out there anywhere in the US. With CC and Club Champion go in with the mindset you’re not going to buy from them because you’ll have sticker shock. They charge full msrp for clubs then full msrp for shafts on top of that (plus grips) plus labor.
  2. The LAB would do just fine in testing. As I’ve seen many people do just fine while tinkering in the PGA store. The fitter in there always has folks try it, how many he sells I don’t know. I’m wanting the Blād next as it’s more traditionally shaped with the same tech.
  3. YES that’s them. I couldn’t think of that for anything... now to see if they still exist
  4. That’s incredibly inaccurate. They don’t require a fitting. They’re also sold in stores now and have been for a while now. They recommend you get fitted, which all companies do now. I’ve spoken with Bill and Sam both and they’ve both said they’ll sell you anything but they recommend a fitting so they can get not only loft and lie but also rotation speed correct. But it’s not and never has been a requirement. Ive used one of their putters. Still have one. I took that putter well, especially on fast greens as it squares itself and maintaining speed is relatively easy with it. This time of year when it’s slower, I use different stuff. Mainly because I’ve got a rack full of putters anyway, but the LAB does exactly what they advertise it stays square to square. You also have to slightly adjust your stance and move the ball slightly forward for it to work properly. That’s because of the forward press on it.
  5. If you want a high powered magnet, go to a scrap yard or a pawn shop or antique store and find an old microwave from the 80’s or early 90’s. The magnets in those are what lots of the vans use and they cost virtually nothing. All the fancy contraptions and devices and an old microwave magnet works better than all of them.
  6. Alright guys, been a while since I’ve posted (been busy with life and work), but I had a question for some of the more tenured forum members (as it appears the archives on the page don’t go back that far). Help me remember because I can’t right now... What was the company from New Zealand that made golf balls that used to post on the forums? He had several lines with kooky names but had the brightest and easiest to see yellow ball I’ve ever seen... his username was “xxxsomethingxxx” inNZ. I can’t remember the whole thing. Was discussing this with some folks earlier and I can’t for the life of me remember the company and can’t find it in searches

Scotty Buttonback Newport I had Centershafted, 2014 squareback that was centershafted, Directed Force 2.1, Scotty T22 Newport 2.
  8. I bought both the Newport and Newport 2 in 34” lengths. I had intentions on putting a ysc in and the grip I like. Needless to say after a 28 putt round I’m not touching the Newport 2.
  9. That’s not a buttonback. It’s just a studio select. It’s a good find for sure at the price, though

  11. One of the most stable putters on the planet is a center shafted putter, the L.A.B Golf putters. Both the mallet and the new blade are lie angle balanced. The brand is formerly directed force putters. Adam Scott used the mallet at The Masters. They’re incredibly stable and the only putter out there that squares itself. im a big centershaft guy. My gamer right now when not using my LAB is a Scotty Buttonback Newport I had converted to true center shafted (most are back from center and have a little toe hang. Mine is dead center and perfectly face balanced, as is the square back I had customized). I’ve got a bunch of different ones in my collection.
  12. Technically though you can find them via Directed Force website, the putters have been rename LA.B Golf putters. They're Lie Angle Balanced and they've actually got more tech in them than anything that's come out in a LOOOOONG time. The physics formula for them alone is patented along with the design. They just releases a brass blade with the same tech as well. As far as Adam's putter, he actually is using the owner of LAB's personal putter. They can be adjusted infintely and they're best when fitted individually as they take into account not only stance/swingplane but stroke speed and rotation speed as well and are calibrated for every aspect about YOUR putting stroke. Doesn't hurt that the folks at LAB are good folks either. It's the only putter that i've seen that will keep itself square through the stroke and regardless of where impact is on the face. I bought one to test the theories after talking to the owner multiple times. It's still the ugliest putter I've ever put in the bag. But as long as putts keep falling I don't care how ugly it is.
  13. Got ot my buttonback back from a buddy I had modify it for me...
